"Trinity Black:  Behind Closed Doors" by Theresa Hodge
 
My Thoughts...
 
What a SAD read!  This author really knows how to mess with our feelings because this was one emotional, dramatic and  abusive read that I have ever read [and please believe me I have read many!].  Both of these characters needed help. For poor Trinity...from that horrible mom and husband and for Philip the husband...he definitely needed lots of help too.  It was nice in the way the story went about Trinity finally coming to peace with all her mother had done to her.  At least the mom was now off of the drugs and had found God.  The story wrapped up in a neat package but I was definitely not satisfied with how that husband got away with so much and it wasn't really dealt with!  It is my understand that a lots of people have been faced with this type of abuse and all that can be said and done is when they finally get feed up hopefully they will be able to get out of the situation alive.  For Trinity it seems like there maybe light through that tunnel for her that she will get a much better life. I am still left  me saying wow that was some read and please understand that this read is not for the 'faint of heart.'

"Beautiful Assassin: Revelations (Destiny Awaits Book 2)" by Stephanie Nicole Norris

My Thoughts....

Wow, what a wild ride as this author's story keeps your attention as you are turning the pages to see what was coming at you next. I enjoyed how the second book continues on from where the first story left off giving the reader one heck of a good read. This was definitely one of those story that was full of action and the reader will definitely know who is the boss as well as the queen [Brian & Celine]. I would suggest that the reader read the first book before reading this second one for a better understand of just what had happened earlier in the story. All in all this was a good fast read.

Review:

"Until Ray" By Cheryl Robinson

My Thoughts....

What a very interesting read that will keep you turning the pages and leave you by the end wanting more!

When I thought about the story after reading it I found it really sad especially for Sarita. To me the writing was definitely printed on the wall for her to see but for some reason Sarita wasn't able to see it even though she was a very smart person. Sarita had been warned especially by her mother but like so many of us she thought she was following her heart. But was Ray the right man that would truly love Sarita? This author really gives the reader quite a story that you will give one many thoughts long after the read. The characters were simply off the chart...from Ray, Sarita, Solomon, Cynthia, Miss King, Vera, Paw Paw, Boone, Sharon, Faith, Joy, Graham, Tisha, Reid to Veronica to name a few were all well developed, portrayed, defined and believable definitely giving this story a realness that one could feel as if they were there in the mist of it all.

I will not say much about Ray other than ... yes, he let me down and all I can say from that is he definitely needs help! After saying that I will stop and only say pick up "Until Ray" to see how well this author present to the readers such a outstanding read that will leave you shaking your head, saying wow and wanting more! Be prepared for a long well thought out read. It will definitely be interesting how this trilogy will continue on because there are lots of questions that need to be answered and I will look forward to reading more about it. Would I recommend? YES!!
