*Happy Release Day!*


She escaped the life she had, to find the life she needed…

How much of our fate is circumstance?

Noor’s life path has always been potholed with obstacles.

But she was a survivor, an adapter…a proud wanderer.

Still, the deep yearning for more kept her motivated to conquer every hindrance, because there had to be more waiting – somewhere.

Hitchhiking her way to a new coast, she lands at the feet of money, prestige, and a soul-touching love, all at the doing of a chance job opportunity.

But it doesn’t mean all even terrain, and her past has a problem letting go.

Still, Noor is convinced destiny has brought her to the life she deserves.

She won’t allow the girl she was stop her from becoming the woman she needs to be.

Rules don’t apply, and she’s tired of letting life happen to her.

She’s determined to finally get everything she’s ever wanted.

Everything she’s ever needed.

Book Review: Freddie by Sabrina B Scales

The fourth book in The Bricks series is about Freddie. In book 3, we found out that she is Keshia’s first born daughter. Here, we see the internal struggle of an adult child dealing with a blended family, while being in a situationship. I have to admit that I loved how the mothers came together for the sake of their daughter.

Roman is Freddie’s next door neighbor and friend with benefits. Will his baby mama drama result in him losing a good thing?

This was another page-turner from @authorsabrinabscales. The teachers were developed and the plot was engaging. I loved everything about this book, and my favorite character is Freddie’s father. He just seemed so down to earth. I highly recommend that you check out this series, and hope that you enjoy it as much as I did.

*Book of the Day*

Today’s book is an emotional coming of age story, written by @novelistblacctopp, about a young man named Innoxent.

From a brutal and traumatizing rape, a nearly flawless and brilliant soul is conceived, destined for greatness beyond the unapologetic, harsh, and gritty streets of South Dallas. Through his unique, God-given gift of poetry, Innoxent, the name his mother chose for him with purpose to purify his conception, finds his life’s calling and strives to fulfill the promise that he will become somebody by any means despite his beginning. But first, Innoxent must navigate through the obstacles that come along with simply being young, male, and black in urban America.

His life becomes even more complicated when his mama, his heartbeat and rock, seeks the love and affection she so desperately desires in the wrong man. His uncle, the sole positive male in his life, disappointedly falls prey to fast-moneyand criminal activity that leads to a prison stint. With his mama being blinded by love, his family in chaos, and his best friend on the run, Innoxent finds comfort in his gift of words. And then he meets them, a girl he initially believes is out of his league, and a couple of accomplished black men who see his real potential to become more than the world expects of him. However, he’s still not immune to tragedy nor is he prepared for it. So, when it strikes, his world is shattered and the pain is insurmountable.

“Some black boys don’t get to be heroes in the movie.”~~~Innoxent Monroe

Book Review Keshia by Sabrina B Scales

In book 3 of The Bricks series, young Keshia has been thru some disturbing things in her young age. Mother of six, with four baby daddies, she has risen above it all for herself and for her children. Reconnecting with her only son Bailey, is stained at first, but proves to be very rewarding. The way her children loved on one another warmed my heart, and the icing on the cake was the very end.

Out of the entire series, this by far, is my favorite. The background story on Ms. Bobbie made me love her even more. My favorite character is little Bailey. He was the sweetest little man, who just happened to be caught up in adult drama. I’m so glad the women were able to put everything aside for the sake of the child. My least favorite character is Josh. He was too controlling for my taste, and him trying to tighten the reigns only caused him to lose everything.

I must’ve been hiding under a rock, concerning @authorsabrinabscales catalog, but I’m definitely here to stay. Go get this book!

*Book Discussion*

You’re invited to join me, along with a few book buddies, as we discuss The House of Eve by NYT bestselling author @sadeqajohnson.

1950s Philadelphia: fifteen-year-old Ruby Pearsall is on track to becoming the first in her family to attend college, in spite of having a mother more interested in keeping a man than raising a daughter. But a taboo love affair threatens to pull her back down into the poverty and desperation that has been passed on to her like a birthright.

Eleanor Quarles arrives in Washington, DC, with ambition and secrets. When she meets the handsome William Pride at Howard University, they fall madly in love. But William hails from one of DC’s elite wealthy Black families, and his par­ents don’t let just anyone into their fold. Eleanor hopes that a baby will make her finally feel at home in William’s family and grant her the life she’s been searching for. But having a baby—and fitting in—is easier said than done.

With their stories colliding in the most unexpected of ways, Ruby and Eleanor will both make decisions that shape the trajectory of their lives.

Book Review: Tasia by Sabrina B Scales

Tasia has experienced something so horrific, she crawls up in a ball with nothing to live for. Seeking solace in a bottle leaves her homeless and actually Alcoholics Anonymous, which is where she met Aries. Little did she know, this would be a turning point for her.

Aries is a professional football player that got caught up in a little trouble, but from the day he met Tasia, everything started looking up.

This book was an emotional roller coaster ride for me. No woman should have to experience such a tragic loss and I loved how the author handled it. The love from Tasia’s support system was what I believe allowed her to begin her healing journey…from Dudley to Ms. Bobbie and Aries parents. Another stellar job by @authorsabrinabscales.

*Book of the Day*

Today’s book is my introduction to Dream Collins.

Pain is a survival mechanism of fundamental importance. It plays a crucial role in our lives and eventually molds us into whoever it is that we become. At least it did for Zuri.

After her world is brutally destroyed, she feels she has nothing left to hold on to but the fading dream of escaping the ghetto. Young, beautiful, and naïve, she is drawn into the world of sex and money, working at a hole-in-the-wall strip club in South Philly. One bad decision leads to another, and she quickly finds herself on the path to destruction. But a chance meeting with Brown, a ghost from her past, changes everything. In him, she finds love and the strength to endure.

Accepting his offer, Zuri returns to her old neighborhood, but as fate would have it, the familiar face of tragedy rears its ugly head once again. Old wounds are opened up, and secrets revealed as she comes face to face with the ultimate betrayal. Consumed by her emotions and the thirst for revenge, Zuri wants answers in blood. Witness the making of a Murder Mama and a legacy reborn.
