BnB Spotlights: Kim Golden's Maybe Baby Series


Ya'll please welcome Kim Golden to the blog. Now, I've been sitting on this series for a minute (and for no paticular reason), reading sometimes falls behind my lackluster crazy life, lols. But I hear this is bomb ass series and is quite good so I'll be picking it up soon. But until I can wow ya'll with my review, enjoy this spotlight and Maybe pick up on new series to try Baby. 
See what I did there? lols 

It started with a kiss…




(Books 1-3: Maybe Baby, Maybe Tonight and Maybe Forever)
Laney Halliwell has an Instagram-perfect life in Stockholm most people would covet— a great job, a stunning apartment in one of the trendiest districts in the city and a very handsome partner in Niklas. But something is missing. Laney wants a baby, but  Niklas has already made sure that it isn’t an option. An alternative solution sends Laney to Copenhagen, Denmark where what starts off as an innocent introduction leads to something more with Mads. And Laney realizes that what she has in Stockholm with Niklas isn’t enough to keep her from crossing a forbidden line.

No such thing as love…


(Book 4: Maybe Tomorrow)

Eddy and Henrik don’t believe in love. At least, that’s what they keep telling themselves. They’ve been burned in the past, and neither wants to be that vulnerable again. Midsummer’s Eve changed all of that. It was only supposed to be a summer fling, so why can’t they stop thinking about one another? And for Eddy—who’s moving back to America in a few weeks—the worst thing that could happen would be to fall in love with the one man who could make her question her decision. And Henrik’s out of his comfort zone. He never counted on trusting love again. He’s put all his energy into his career. So why does the thought of Eddy leaving Europe for good make him want to do everything in his power to make her want to stay…?

The Maybe… series is about the things we do for love. From Laney and Mads’s unconventional meeting and the fallout that follows to love cynics Eddy and Henrik’s steamy Midsummer encounter and the games people play when their hearts are at stake.

Review: Black Panther #1












Source: Self Purchased | Format: Kindle&ComiXology | Published: April 6, 2016 | Series: Yes | Genre: Comics, Graphic Novels | Author: Ta-Nehisi Coates | Available: BN--Amazon--Goodreads

Okay, almost everyone in the world of the living know that there will be a movie coming out February 2018 for the Black Panther comics. And if you don't know this...why aren't you in the world of the living? 😆. Anyhoo's, I don't know how much of the movie will include the comics but I'm excited...plus, I figured I start reading the comics so I can at least have a better understanding of the movie when I walk on up on there (and I will be all up in there, lols). 

I've been sitting on the first issue of Black Panther written by Mr. Coates for a minute. I kept telling myself to read it but I guess a potential movie release is as good as any. 

From what I can surmise, T'Challa aka The Black Panther comes home and he comes into unrest meaning folk are generally acting fools up in Wakanda. Ain't that some shit to come home to some mess when you in charge? smh. 




Anyways, there is a terrorists group called The People and they aren't not fans of the old ways. They want change and they want through violence. T'Challa in his Panther form must bring Wakanda back to its peaceful state. But what will it cost him and the royal family? And does he have the will and the strength of the Panthers before him to handle it all? 

We also see where T'Challa's step-mother, the Queen must make a decision to punish one of the Dora Milaje. The Dora Milaje are a group of warrior women who protect the royal family by any and all means necessary. But punishing one of the Dora's brings a break in the group and two of these women who we find out are lovers's break away hence going against the Royal family and Wakanda. 

I will say I was a bit overwhelmed going into this first issue. It took me a minute or two to get my feet grounded in the story because there is a lot going on but I think that's just with comics/graphic novels in general. IMO, it takes you some time to get comfortable with the reading format. Good thing with the Kindle is that you can just click on the comic box and you only read that one box instead of going to and fro...

T'Challa must find a way to bring his beloved country back to it's glorious ways, he must also find out who is behind the terrorists group, The People. I'm not sure at this point if he knows about the two Dora's who have now defected from the group but that should an interesting story line as well. 

All and all, I enjoyed this first issue and decided to go on ahead and purchase the 2nd issue (at $4.50...geez louise!). But if I want to know  what going on then a sister has got to do what a sister has got to do. Besides support the author, the comic and all that...

*This series is called A Nation Under Our Feet.

Wine & Write
















*Wine & Write is a Brazen Babe Reviews feature

Is Romance dead? And I don’t mean in a literal sense because I do know that there are some folk that still go hard for the romance genre and the genre is STILL very profitable but…how do you dear reader feel about romance reads at this very moment?

Me? Eh, I’m not feeling it as much as say when I first started blogging. Just about every book I read was a romance, but to date…I’m pretty much am not all that interested in the genre as much as I use to be. Do I still read some romance books? Sure I do, but I find myself of late getting bored. I know for me, there is a lot of repetitiveness as far as books in this genre go. I mean how many rich billionaires finding love with the poor girl of his dreams can we read about? How many willfully TSTL (too stupid to live) chicks we we have to suffer through? Hell, even vampires have gotten to be a bit old and I’m a huge fan of vamps.

Not to say there aren’t some gems out there because there most definitely are, I’m just wondering is all. So again, how do you feel dear fellow reader?  

I'm sure my I'll get that ol' feeling about the romance back again one of these days but for now? *shrugs*. 

And don’t you guys who write romance get your panties in a knot, okay? I’m just posing a question to my fellow readers. This post isn’t to disrespect your genre or your craft. I do have a question for authors though. Do you ever feel like "fudge this"? and What keeps you in "the game" amid some of the bs that tend to goe on at times?
