"A Summer Affair" by Janae Keyes

 

My Thoughts.....

 

This was a sweet but sad story.  At least in the end Ashlee who had been so very unhappy in her marriage, after an affair, losing that love but was able to find the love she had once had. The author did a wonderful job at displaying to the reader all of the emotions that can happen in a lost and new love in this well told short story.

Taking Back Philosophy: A Multicultural Manifesto - Bryan W. Van Norden,Jay L. Garfield
The Diamond Empire (A Diamonds Novel) - K'wan

I'm super excited for these reads. It's a good variety. I have very high expectations for A Hope Divided by Alyssa Cole. I will need to read the first book (I do have it) An Extraordinary Union. I read The Diamond Empire last month and loved it! I gave it 4 stars. K'wan knows how to draw you in and keep you there. Moonlight Over Manhattan will be my first read by Sarah Morgan. So many readers love her books. Since I'm familiar with the works of authors Jen Turano and Katherine Reay I know these will be awesome. Over the years I've seen the works of Barbara Taylor Bradford in bookstores and have been curious about her writing. Finally, I can see why she's so beloved. The big book of the month is Why I'm No Longer Talking To White People About Race. This book has been read widely and is being promoted everywhere. Overly hyped books scare me and I usually try to keep them for some time to not be influenced by frenzy.

"White Male" by Kim J. West

 

My Thoughts....

 

If you are looking for a hot and steamy romantic read then this author will bring it all to you from the drama 'sensual intense,hot and erotic love scenes, heartbreaking' all the way to the romantic side of it all.'  This author gives the readers something to think about long after the read as it was for Jonathan and Lena..BWWM.   There will be so much going on that you will have to keep up.  Definitely Lena had a lots going on with herself as she had just come out of a horrible relationship and now this one was certainly a new one for her...not only dating her boss that involved cultural differences  but....well this is where I say you will just have to pick up "White Male" and see for yourself how it will all turn out. Yes, at time Lena did get on my nerves with all of her insecurities but after thinking about it in the end I could see her point of reasoning. Will Lena ever be able to let her pass go and stand up with the man that loved her so dearly?  Will Lena and Jonathan be able to 'rise up and fight for what they want and forget out the outside forces' that were around them and get to their HEA?' 

Well, open up this novel and continue reading to see if Jonathan gets what he wants in the end!  If you are looking for a good story full of intensed but yet beautiful....I would recommend this one for you.

This was quite a interesting read that this author presents as we are presented with Channing and Kemara that dealt with 'race and love.' Being presented with racism and the way it was showed in this read was really something as we see how these two will work it all out.  How will Kemara be able to take this all in after she finds out about Channing's background?  I liked would this character was able to know just what was right and wrong.  This story really shows that even though one may be born to a racist family there can be a change if it is desired.  Will these two be able to 'look deep within themselves and find love?'  This story really shows that even in our world today 'hate and bigotry' still can be found.  In the end will love trump hate?  Well, to find out about this story you will have to pick up this very good read of  'Dangerous Bonds' to see how well this author gives the reader a very well written story of just what happened in such a situation as it was was Channing and Kemara.

Interesting good novella about how a couple gets back a lost love after ten years as it was for Tommy and Katara in this 'hot steamy romantic read.'  I found this story a sweet read and definitely one hilarious one too.
