#JointBookReview: Deeper by allyn lesley

Author: allyn lesley
Series: Deeper Chronicles
Self Published
Genre: New Adult, Contemporary Romance
242 Pages
Heat: Strong Sexual Content

Our Review
Deeper is the story of Avianna Linton who is a school teacher in New York City. Hiding from her old life and starting a new one in NYC, she befriends a fellow teacher who just happens to be friends with Noah Adams, who is known as the King of New York.
This was a enjoyable story and the mystery/suspense element of it was good.
Deeper definitely had its perks but it also had its downfalls. And we don’t mean like BOOOOOOOOOOOM big ol downfalls, but it had its moments (quite a bit of them actually) where we just couldn’t go on. But we had to get through it. And we will say that the suspense and mystery is what kept us rolling. The mysterious and oh so dangerous Noah Adams was every bit of bad boy that you could want in a hero.
The rel…

My Review
**don't read this if you don't want to see some spoilers and a pissed off/kinda of ranty review**

I just didn't like Eboni. She was a **tch, selfish, whoa is me character who couldn't let go of the past. She was also a chump who refused to see that she was part of the problem is this so called relationship and kept putting it all of Gunnar. I hated her though 90% of this book and couldn't garner any sympathy for her butt at the last 10%. I cannot stand female characters who cannot see past their own issues...Yeah, the man left but you didn't stop him and you didn't fight for him to stay. She holds a gotdamn grudge for all these years and when the man does come back to help his sick adoptive mother, she acts li…

Race, Hate and What Happened In Charleston South Carolina

Unless you live under a rock or don’t watch the news, there was a shooting this past Thursday at a historic black church, Emanuel AME Church in Charleston South Carolina. Nine innocent people lost their lives to hate, they welcomed a killer into their Sanctuary pretending to join prayer and that person murdered them. As I write this I am sad, I’m angry and I’m hurt but mostly I am sad.

As we go into the future, do we really want to continue to bring the past with us? Do we really want to live so divided in hate that we cannot just simply live in peace and harmony. That person walked into a church, the last place where you would think something like this could happen and took NINE lives. But we didn’t believe it when we saw what happened in Connecticut either.

Race relations in the country is failing, everyday we take several steps backwards on this subject. When bad things happen and race is involved, we want to ignore the obvious...that big ugly stain of our history. We want to delud…

My Review
This is going to be a short review because I’ve already did a video for it. But sometimes, you know...words work too.

Glutton for Pleasure is a menage’ and also a interracial romance. Your main characters are Devi Malik who is Indian and also a chef. You also have Jace and Marcus Callahan who are Irish and of course twins, one be a lawyer and the other be an accountant. Regular Joe’s, now ya’ll know I love my regular Joes.

What’s going on here? Devi who is in a relationship and sexual drought is hooked up with Jace and Marcus by one of her sisters who just happens to know that these two share women. Devi is a bit hesitant at first, for various reason but then decide to go ahead and sleep wit…

Movie Review: Chocolate City

Drama
Length: 1 hr 31 minutes
Stars: Robert Ri'chard | Vivica A. Fox | DeRay Davis | Michael Jai White

About
Life for a struggling college student changes in an instant when he meets the owner of a male strip club who convinces him to give amateur night a whirl.






Honestly this was probably one of the worst movies I watched (as far as story lines go) in a very long time. It was a boring, honest to goodness snooze fest. And you know what is sad about that? my sister & I actually planned a whole girls trip to the theater to see this...thank good gravy we didn't pay. Well, I paid my cable bill and was able to catch it on BET. I guess because of the limited release of Chocolate City and the upcoming Magic Mike 2 movie, this one got pushed to the side. We all know how Hollywood do, especially when a full cast of color is involved. But I can't even be mad at them for this one, it was not worth movie money.

The "About" info above pretty much …
