"DUI:  Drowning Under The Influence Of You 2" by Charae Lewis
 
My Thoughts...
 
There was quite a bit of dramatic in this second read of DUI that will keep the reader turning the pages to see what will be happening next in this entertaining read.  When the saying karma will come...well it certainly did for several particular characters. All of the characters were quite a interesting bunch ...from Quillion, Marlene, Tyme, Jamie, Myka, Lydia, Steve, Demeko, Dina, to Gia to name a few that you keep your interest as you are kept turning the pages.  I liked how this author was able to give the reader a intriguing story that one could see as even being believable especially in all that was happening to Quillion and Marlene. All I can say is that bipolarism is a very serious illness if it's not handle correctly and definitely not to be played with.  Wow, after all is said and done all that is left to say is this was one emotional dramatic  read that can give the reader much thought long after the read.  I did enjoy that twist at the end in who had done what to whom. To really understand it all one will have to pick up this good read to see how well this author presents it all to the reader.  It was really good to see the HEA that came forth.

My Thoughts....

 

This is the second part of this read that will keep your attention as this author gives the reader quite a active read.  Will things ever be OK for Na Na as long as that Kenan is still around bringing much havoc to her life?  It seems like this guy is always several steps ahead of her...how can this be?  Who

is sharing information with Kenan?  Well, I guess as we are left wandering what will happen next there will have to pick up the the next series where I am more than sure there will be more craziness as the reader will hopefully find out who, what, how and where to rest this well told story.

My Thoughts....
 
This was another good read from this author...'Soul and Diana' that will keep you on the edge of your seat turning the pages to see who or what will be coming next.  I really felt so sorry for Diana..all she wanted was love, happiness and a family.  But with Soul...would that ever happen? It was really interesting to see how that Soul wasn't able to take a dose of his own medicine and I can't blame Diana for doing what she did either.  Again, will Soul open up his eyes before it's too late?
 
I found the secondary characters [Trigga, Ian, Ced, Yohanna and Nyri] to name a few were were captivating in this read. As you are thinking  the situation  is going  one way then it goes another way presenting so many twist and turns. This was quite a interesting story of just what some people will do to get what they think they deserve.  Definitely leaving one to wonder where is there loyalty in all of this?  Can anyone trust anybody?  In the end  the reader is left with a cliffhanger....wondering is this the end for?   I guess we will have to wait and see in part 2.  I guess the saying keep your friends close and your enemies even closer will definitely come into play as they read through this novel of "Soul and Diana."

My Thoughts...

 

What a good urban fiction read that was indeed well written by this author that will keep you turning the pages.  The story was about Celine and Brian as their love seems to grows for each other from their past. When it seemed like Brian wanting to give his 'Queen' all of it [even helping with the revenge] however, was there a hidden motive behind all of this for him?  One thing for sure that Celine had one thing on her mind and that was getting revenge for those who were involved in her husband's [Caleb's] death.  What will happen from the twist and turns and lies as they start coming out as Celine finds out just who was behind all of this?  As the story ends the reader will be left with a lots of questions that will definitely needs to be answered.  As we will be left wondering  a lot with a cliffhanger where you will have to pick up  'Beautiful Assassin Revelations Book 2' to see what else will come out from this  interesting story.

"Retribution...Comes Around" by NyRee Ausler

My Thoughts....

As this story continues from the first novel...'Retribution: What Goes Around' to 'Retribution: Comes Around' as it is still dealing with quite a 'love triangle...Asaya, James and Rey. The author puts in her work as she delivers to the reader quite a group of characters who were somewhat rather complexed and definitely having you wondering is anyone in the story OK? Oh, yes I did see there was was one person....Asaya's mom. But would Asaya she be willing to listen to her? I found Asaya...well all I will say one quite one naive and gullible individual who even at the end I was left wondering did she really get it? This was a well written and thought out read that will keep you turning to pages to see what in the world would be coming next because this was definitely not one of those predicable stories. I will say that the ending caught my attention because it seems to me even more would come to Asaya as it seems someone else has her attention. Or maybe I should say he definitely had his attention on her....from a quote:

"He was a little smarter than she gave him credit for. He knew she wasn't into him, but didn't care. After all he had done for her, she was stuck with him whether she liked it or not. If she tried to play him again, he'd be sure she found herself in yet another life-threatening situation. This time, he wouldn't be there to save her. **** who says nice guys finish last."

I will say to truly understand this novel a little more, I would suggest the reader read the 'Retribution 1' first because it will definitely help you better understand of what is happening in 'Retribution 2.'

Thank you to the author for a gift of her novel for my giving my honest opinion of the read.
