    Debut novelist Michele Grant pens a juicy tale in Heard It All Before. Best friends Jewellen and Renee think they know Dallas men like the backs of their hands. But that’s before Jewellen unexpectedly falls for a guy from the wrong side of the tracks, and Renee gets lured away from her own man by a hard-bodied hottie.

    Despite some other reviews, I thought this was pretty good. It kept my attention and some parts were even comical. I enjoyed it.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I loved the book but the audio version left alot to be desired. I felt the narrator could've done a whole lot better.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The custody talk...the "daddy for the holidays" fairytale.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Pete Ohms?

    Two of my favorite narrators, either Ezra Knight or Kevin Free.


    Do you think Truly Everlasting needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No, it was too fairy tale..Not one of Ms. Jackson's best books.

    I loved the characters and the fact that it had factual events i.e. the passing of Whitney, which made the store seem more real.


    What other book might you compare Red Hot to and why?

    The other Strong Family books....they're all RED HOT!!! LOL


    What about Shari Peele’s performance did you like?

    She always does a great job!

    Desdimona Green has been the name on everyone’s lips in Blink, Texas. Twenty-five years ago, at the age of 18, she shot and killed one of Blink’s wealthiest men, a pillar of the community, oil baron Julian Gatewood. The Gatewood family was considered untouchable, so the whole state of Texas was rocked to its core over Julian’s murder. But people were even more shocked to discover that Desi was Julian’s daughter and that her mother had been his lover for years.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would definitely recommend this to a friend. It was a serious page turner that had more twists & turns, dips & flips than the newest rollercoaster at Six Flags Great Adventure....


    What did you like best about this story?

    That it tells the truth on what lies & secrets can do to relationships.


    What does Soozi Cheyenne bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She makes the characters come to life...Great job Soozi!

    It took me awhile to get thru this reading. I'm not sure if it was the storyline or the narrator which was surprising since I usually love Ezra Knight's voice. So, we'll just go with the storyline...it kind of just dragged out. However, the twist at the end was refreshing.

    Winner of the African American Literary Award for Fiction, Essence® best-selling author Victoria Christopher Murray delivers a cautionary tale about debt and the dangers of an overly tempting offer. Married at 17, Adam and Evia Langston have worked their way up from rags to riches. But as they are enjoying all the trappings of their success, a financial downturn leaves them teetering on the brink of disaster. And that’s when Evia’s boss makes the Langstons a fivemillion dollar offer they can’t refuse.

    Story

    I loved the story about Adam & Evia which I found out their names had a symbolic meaning. Although Evia's actions really started grating my nerves after a while...the old saying "be careful what you wish for" definitely applies. I also enjoyed the way the author "snuck in" a moral to the story - very clever. It would be nice if there was a continuation or part 2.

    New York Times best-selling author Carl Weber and award-winning novelist Eric Pete team up to deliver the first in a much-anticipated new trilogy. The Family Business features two times the heat, two times the fun, and two times the drama as the members of an unforgettable family (not to mention their lovers and hangers-on) find their way in and out of trouble. As their many fans will attest, Weber and Pete share a talent for penning juicy fiction that their audience can’t get enough of.

Despite his allergies, Kaeden agrees to go on a camping trip, which Jade is hired to lead. And while stranded one night, the two share a rowdy tumble in a sleeping bag.

Now Johnson introduces Nelson Kennard, a former number-one NBA draft pick who blew his chance at the big time - and is about to lose the best thing that's ever happened to him, sexy school teacher Parris Stalls. Soon-to-be-dissed Nelson may have been a playa back in the day, but there's always another baller waiting in the wings.
