    Hip-hop artist Tip "T.I." Harris has received every acclaim the music world has to offer. Now, working with bestselling celebrity collaborator David Ritz, T.I. applies all his talent and experience to the world of fiction by creating the epic love story of Power and Beauty. After the death of his mother, Charlotte, Paul “Power” Clay allows himself to be guided by Slim, a local businessman. Slim always has the best of everything, and Power is sure that if he learns Slim's ways, he'll make something of himself - and perhaps be worthy of Tanya “Beauty” Long.

    Story

    Ok so I didn’t read the narrative about the book and simply assumed it was an autobiography of sorts. (((NOT!!)) It’s a novel a pretty good novel. Initially I thought it was about T.I.’s life, but the story didn’t match up with the things “I know” about T.I.

    The book has two main characters that it follows in a coming of age type of story line (which I heart). The drama and the twist and turns are unexpected. Some events seems unrealistic, like the portions of the young girl moving to all these places (East & West coasts and the Midwest ) and being put up w/o paying rent, obtaining hands-on formal training in the fashion industry. The same things happening with the guy in the book, moving around and learning the drug business indirectly by being put up and not paying his own way. I also think it is very unbelievable for a guy in which they portrayed to be able to carry out one of his 1st tasks w/o hesitation or a bit of remorse. That is all I can say without telling you the intricate details.

    GO BUY, IT’S A REALLY GOOD READ!!!

    Lutishia Lovely, author of A Preacher’s Passion, pens this provocative tale about a minister and his congregation caught up in a whirlwind of scandal. The young Reverend Nate Thicke has made quite the reputation for himself ,but when he falls in love and gets married, he swears to become a one-woman man. Most of his congregation forgives him for his past sins, but some aren’t quite ready to give the Reverend a second chance.

    Slow to start, but once it got moving it was a GREAT LISTEN. The covering of the flock is some straight bullish, in this sense. I do not share. It is a shame what parents do to children regarding brainwashing. The best thing is to grow up and be open to learn outside your parental grasp. Darn Church Folk.

    Story

    This very well written story helps you explore the old cliche’, Never say Never. It’s about friendships, that bud from college and families develop and the entire families become so close it is similar to one big happy family. Then life steps lines get crossed, feelings get hurt and friendships get tested.

    Great story, I thoroughly enjoyed it and would refer it to fellow readers with enthusiasm.

He's a hard cop who doesn't mind bending the rules to the breaking point to make a case, which is why Internal Affairs is digging in his backyard, looking for buried bones. People are starting to wonder which side of the law the Lone Wolf really hunts for. With his career hanging by a thread, he needs a major show of good faith to stay employed and out of prison. That's when he gets the call....

    The narrator has a dreamy voice, I love it. The narrative has you on the edge of your seat, speculating whose doing what and the motive. Some characters appear from other books, written by K’wan. Additionally trying to figure out what side of the law the detective is on. Although short, I enjoyed it, not sure it could have been longer. The details and the suspense have your mind mentally flipping back through, trying to figure out stuff.

But before these two couples are able to claim their prize money, one wife isn't going to want to return home, so fist fights will erupt and there will be a lot of blood shed. In the end who will end up with whom?

    Don’t judge a book by the title, lol. NOW this was so interested because my expectation and mind was thinking one thing, but the book was going in a different directions. I had so many questions. The experiment was crazy and questionable. And the other item was, where were the people from the reality show in this? Ok I won’t ask too many questions so I won’t have to add spoiler alert. The imagery was fun for me because, I’m from the area described in the book and not only that, the hotel, yeah yeah yeah, I stayed there before! It’s a very nice hotel. I would different say this is a good read. Held my interest from the beginning. Get it!

    Freelance writer Jacqueline Tate arrives in Los Angeles and soon meets brilliant, award-winning scientist Randall Atwater, the man she's come to cover at a conference on trends and technology. He is everything she's read about - brainy, witty, handsome, and cool. And after a week spent with the most fascinating man she's ever known, there's no way she can give him up. There's just one problem: Randall's wife of 20 years. No matter - men like Randall are few and far between.

    Another good one. Started out a little slow but most of the great ones do. You would never guess the happenings in the story. It was really good. Jacqueline uhn uhn uhn, she was a very diverse character. The strength of Sherry was monumental. True ride or die. Man, Randall, his nerdy butt could have done more in the way of prevention, but shows men are weak! Hit the select button, its good! I promise.

    Growing up poor in Texas, Vera Lomax used every gold-digging trick in the book to land a rich husband. Now living in the lap of luxury in San Francisco, her only job is to fawn over her much-older husband, so it's been easy for her to balance a life of shopping and affairs with younger men with a major secret: the 16-year bribery of one of her husband's mistresses to keep her pregnancy under wraps. Vera figures that a little hush money every month will ensure her husband's fortune is hers alone....

    This literary art work is classic Mary Monroe, with the high energy vivid characters. Within this book it is plenty rags to riches stories, chocked full of drama. Some of the characters are so0 naive, but it’s so well written it’s believable. I thought the daddy character was going to run out of money. It is taking everything in me not to spoil it, so I will stop now. 2 thumbs up. If you are a fan – you will love it. If this is your 1st MM book, you will be a fan. Great read.

His team has been assigned to take down the biggest drug operation in the city. There's only one problem...the head of the operation is his twin brother, Scar Johnson.

    What I loved about this book was two very distinct things it was 18 hours long and it was GOOOOOOD! I like long books, but only if they are good. The narrator, what a voice, yummm (sorry), but it added to the entire project. I live near B-more on the Virginia side and have heard about the wire etc, so to draw from that knowledge base made it so true. This was like a movie in my head. A great love, widespread corruption, deception, karma like a MUG, lol, politics, book smart w/o street smart and vice versa. Wont disappoint!

    I ordered this on reluctantly because it said 2 and I didn’t read one, which I will go back to read, not because, I feel like I missed something because this seemed like a story ALL ON ITS OWN!!! I think a #3 should be created – that is how much I enjoyed it. Was upset when it ended. The negativity in the life of a child shouldn’t ever exist in the home, but it did. As in real life, at least the child had a go-to strong force to pull from. IT WAS GOOD. I’m trying hard to let you know it was good w/o telling the story, I hope I have you interested, because my attention was held to the end! Also great character name. lol!

    The characters are different from what I’m accustomed. A guard and an inmate – go figure, I guess it happens. This is a really good story and the twist and turns keep you on edge. A lot happens in this short period. I like to purchase books that are a minimum 8-10 hours. I was skeptical how much excitement and intensity would evolve in the short time. This Author team didn’t disappoint, it is chocked full of dramatics. Not my first book by this author. Good stuff, good stuff. Betrayal, love, got yo back loyalty, un-expectants – Yeah! Get this one, great beach read.

    Lutishia Lovely writes tales of church life that are positively scandalous - in all the right ways. Side-splittingly funny, bawdy, and chock-full of oh-no- you-did-not moments, A Preacher's Passion stars Passion Perkins, who despite her name hasn't had a man in her inner sanctum for five long years. But things are about to change.
