Book Review from Reader
Great attention grabber in the beginning of the story which immediately gets you hooked on the story. This is a well written story about the complexities of the decisions we make within the family dynamic. Though the title suggests a sinister plot, the story is one that most adults can relate to or imagine in some fashion. As an avid reader, I recommend this book.
L.A. Jefferson is a Detroit native with strong ties to the literary community. An avid reader since childhood, L.A. is self-professed bookworm. Currently L.A. is promoting her book, Unfinished Business, and hard at work on her follow up book, Reconciliation to Hell, both contemporary fiction titles. When she’s not working on her books, L.A. is blogging about writing & publishing, love & relationships, and the roller coaster of balancing it all–family, day job, & writing career.
Reconciliation To Hell
Sandra Anderson isn’t the only woman on the planet to let her cheating husband come back home. But she may be one of the few who did so after his last mistress, Felicia, conceived his child. Still, she thought the life of luxury that he afforded her and their two daughters was worth it. What she didn’t consider was the new role she’d play as step-mother and the ever-presence of the woman she knew still wanted her husband. At the first sight of dubious behavior by her husband, Sandra takes a walk on the wild side, making a few extramarital friends of her own. When someone begins blackmailing her with scandalous pictures of her and some of her friends, she quickly becomes the bigger threat to her marriage than her husband.
Lester Anderson is a lucky man. His wife forgave him for the ultimate betrayal. Sandra is the rightful woman to have by his side as he begins pursuing his longtime political aspirations. But old habits die hard. So when a woman from his past glides through his office door scantily dressed, Lester finds himself falling back into old patterns.
Can this couple survive their reconciliation to hell?

DARK RULER (The Bennett Duet #1) by Xavier Neal
Release Date: October 15th
Add to Goodreads:
I was raised to be a ruler of two worlds.
One with a pen.
One with a knife.
Be the king of the concrete jungle at all costs.
I should’ve simply taken a queen, not courted one.
I should’ve forced her submission, not earned it.
I should’ve let respect be enough, not fall in love.
Someone has made a grave mistake in coming for my company.
For my throne.
For my Mia Bella.
And for that, they will not only meet the man I was raised to become but the one I am now, for the only woman I will ever bow to.

The Foundation for Character and Self-Esteem
Buy Book: https://amzn.to/2GDDMDw
Everyday Ethics and Equity: The Foundation for Character and Self-Esteem eloquently exposes inequities existing between the haves and the have nots.
It also advances the proposition that existence validates an individual’s worth. This is especially relevant during these turbulent times of COVID-19, economic instability, and social unrest.
Written from a cosmic perspective and humanist worldview in easy-to-understand language, this insightful book helps readers to adopt ethical equitable behavior. It also promotes a race-free, war-free world and encourages self-reflective critical thinking.
“As there’s no place underground or in the sky, To reunite with deceased ones after we die, We are obligated while we live on earth, To conscientiously live a life of worth.”

#michiganauthor Beverly Jenkins book Breathless ONLY $1.99 LIMITED TIME OFFER #3dChicks @authorMsBev
A strong-willed beauty finds herself in the arms of the handsome drifter from her past, in this second book in the sizzling series set in the Old West, from USA Today bestselling author Beverly Jenkins.
All it takes is one touch . . .
As manager of one of the finest hotels in Arizona Territory, Portia Carmichael has respect and stability—qualities sorely missing from her harsh childhood. She refuses to jeopardize that by hitching herself to the wrong man. Suitors are plentiful, but none of them has ever looked quite as tempting as the family friend who just rode into town…and none has looked at her with such intensity and heat.
Duchess. That’s the nickname Kent Randolph gave Portia when she was a young girl. Now she’s a stunning, intelligent woman—and Kent has learned his share of hard lessons. After drifting through the West, he’s learned the value of a place to settle down, and in Portia’s arms he’s found that and more. But convincing her to trust him with her heart, not just her passion, will be the greatest challenge he’s known—and one he intends to win…

Reluctantly, he is convinced to go to his high school reunion, but upon meeting the mysterious woman, Ezekiel forgets what he wants and focuses on what he desires.
Too bad he won’t be able to keep her.
When Grae is given the opportunity to sleep with the man of her dreams without him knowing her identity, this shy reclusive young woman steps outside of her shell and transforms herself into the woman of his dreams

Da Laugh and Giggle Podcast MF Book Review: Chasin’ It (The Bag Wars Book 1) by Detroit author, E. Scrill #3dchicks #michiganwriters #michlit #authorssupportingauthors
Raynard and Ike were two ghetto kids in the ‘hood. They came up normal as most, but close as cunt hairs.
Raynard was the oldest with the brightest ideas. He met Pat, an older female who was kind enough to offer him a place to bury his bone. As the years progressed, Ike went away to school while Raynard experimented with harder pieces of the streets.
Ike got a taste of the good life; reaped the benefits of an educated black man, but still couldn’t resist the urge to line his pockets with drug money.
Raynard, who initially thought it was something slick about having live-in poontang, realized that she would always be older than he was. He learned faster that after a pint, Pat could get tougher than liquor store rib tips.
Raynard’s coke habit kept him scrawny, amped up and frequently jacked up. As Raynard’s nasal septum rotted, he found an escape from Pat and her plans for him to eat the seat out of her draws when he stumbled on a connect with blows cut with magic.
this book is about best friends, Raynard and Ike, the choices we all have to make as adults, but the effects of coming from an urban decay. Sometimes we do what we do, because its’ all that we can do.
E Scrill’s metaphors were in line with Iceberg Slim and definitely brought the darkness into the light when it came to the drug, the urban sprawl and what true friends really means.
Chasing It brings the realism of problems faced by living in proverty and the choices we make and we can all learn through Raynard’s eye just because it looks and feels nice don’t make it wonderful for you.
Even though I’m not such a fan of really rough storytelling, I think E. Scrill was almost giving Walter Mosely a run for his money. Good job!
