Are We There Yet!?
The Watsons Go to Birmingham—1963 - Christopher Paul Curtis

In this book, the Watsons head to Birmingham (1963) to visit Grandma Sands. Their visit happens during the Civil Rights Movement. The book shows how the racism and the violence in the South at this time changed many families forever. The narrator, Kenny, witnessed a church bombing and became depressed as a result, believing only magic can heal him. Depending on grade level, I would use selected passages (lower grades) or the entire book (upper grades). Students can write a letter explaining why the Civil Rights Movement is important to the United States. Math can also be integrated with this book. Students will be assigned a certain amount of money and must plan a trip to Birmingham. 


Reading Level: Lexile 920L


Grades: 5-8th

Jacked Up (Birmingham Rebels #3) by Samantha Kane Review
Jacked Up: Birmingham Rebels - Samantha Kane

Linebacker Sam Taylor feels like a ticking time bomb. He left the army with emotional wounds as fresh as the scars on his back. Sam’s been living like a monk, but his best friend, defensive lineman King Ulupoka, wants to get him laid. Easy for him to say. The larger-than-life Samoan is a hard-bodied, tribal-tattooed fantasy. Sam agrees, under one condition: King stays to watch.

ER nurse Jane Foster is done being a good girl, and nothing says wild like picking up two of football’s sexiest players and bringing them back to your hotel room. Trouble is, she can’t decide which one she wants more. Sam is hot, sweet, and vulnerable. Jane’s more than willing to ride him into oblivion. But King’s intense gaze from across the room promises that the best is yet to come.

Sure, King has had his choice of girls and guys in the past. That doesn’t mean he’ll jeopardize his relationship with Sam over a case of locker-room lust—until a naughty nurse pushes them both out of their comfort zones. Seeing Jane and Sam together turns King on more than he ever imagined. If they’re game, he’s ready to tackle a three-way play.



This book is scotching hot and Sam, King, and Jane are wonderful. This is a healing book for Sam and Jane gets to come into her own. 

King is my favorite character with his big sunny personality but he is the one we get to know the least.
I needed much more of his backstory and just time with him.

A great erotic read. Kane never disappoints with touching stories and really sexy times.

A Birmingham Family Christmas (Brazen Brides Book 5) - Cheryl Bolen

A Birmingham Family Christmas by Cheryl Bolen Book starts out with other works by the author. Story starts with Annabelle and she was brought up with her father and grandfather. Emma, her cousin has been blessed over the years also. Annabelle is waiting for the man that hadn't requested to marry her after the Season. Even though this is a series book you are brought up to date with who is who from the start. Annabelle will accompany Emma and her husband to Camden Hall for the Christmas holiday. Story also follows others in the family. Adam is in charge of the bank and hosting the big family event and has invited him to join them. They had gone to school together. Love catching up with the others in the family as I have followed this series. Lots of fun and excitement, drama and the holidays. Spencer had learned women were not to be trusted and 11 years ago he had turned her down for marriage. Love how children put baskets together for those in need-so generous. Adults will help make toys for male children for the baskets. Loved hearing of the tools used to make the toys and the process of using the hand tools. Others are matchmaking Spencer and Annabelle but they each hold a secret. Love hearing how they decorate for the holiday, fresh greens! Injuries occur and feelings are hurt in the process... Amabelle feels like an outsider and Spencer is known as fourth Birmingham brother although he's not related. Misunderstandings from eleven years ago as the truth comes out. There is a lot of joy but their sister and mother may not make it in time for Christmas, they should have arrived by now... Other works by the author are highlighted at the end along with summaries of some of them. Received this review copy from the author and this is my honest opinion.

Review For: A Birmingham Family Christmas
A Birmingham Family Christmas (Brazen Brides Book 5) - Cheryl Bolen

A Birmingham Family Christmas by Cheryl Bolen is Book Five in the "Brazen Brides" series. This is the story of Annabelle Lippencott and Spencer Woodruff. This Novella can easily be a standalone book if you choose to do so.
Annabelle is staying with her cousin Emma Birmingham for the holidays and finds that Spencer is there too. Annabelle and Spencer had been in love some years ago but each thought the other was the cause of their broken heart. Annabelle and Spencer start to learn that something else was at work that cause them to part.
This was a sweet second chance at love story with a Christmas theme in place.
Loved it!

Misconduct - Samantha Kane

This book is #4 in the Birmingham Rebels series.  This book can be read as a standalone novel.  To avoid spoilers and better understand the series, I recommend reading in order.


Carmina is best friends with a popular football player.  He has introduced her to many others in the sport.  She finds herself attracted to two men.  She cannot decide if it is possible to choose just one.  Both Tom & Danny are attractive to her physically and emotionally.


Tom & Danny are roommates and teammates.  They never saw themselves fighting over a girl.  When the worst occurs, neither is willing to walk away from their friendship.  Can they figure things out as things heat up?


This series is a joy to read and a challenge to sometimes understand. Love is love, however, and it is interesting to see what acting on an attraction can show you are capable of.  These characters compliment each other so beautifully, that it makes the reader sigh with joy.  Fits the series just perfectly also.  I give this book a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!
