Mistress, Inc By: Niobia Bryant

    Mistress, Inc  

Well, well, well, I have read the third installment of this Mistress series, and we have come to hear the voice of the mistress, Mz. Jessa Bell, and she seem to have a hell of a lot to say.

In this installment Jessa speaks out, and peoples are listening to what this pregnant mistress has to say. She goes from tramp of the year, to an leading authority on cheating, no good husband's.... If that ain't the "fuck-it," I don't know what is.

This novel takes a few twists and turns, although there was nothing really shocking, but not that predictable either, which kept me racing towards the end. Mrs. Jessa Bell took center stage, and the author worked her in every which way possible. Although Jessa tries hard to stay on the side of The Lord, there just too damn much going on with the woman to walk among the righteous, and one reason why is, if Jessa looks anything like the model on the audio cover here, then hell she was created to please and to be please. Why fight nature? --And Jessa Bell can not fight hers.

My versions of this novel was read in my Kindle app and listen as an audiobook purchased from It was narrated by (the hot, sex, seductive voice of), Scoozi Cheyenne, and yes I got a thang for this woman's voice. The audio version played for 9 hours and 2 minutes, and  Published by: Recorded Books.

Author Niobia character development skills was excellent. The plot was driven by Jessa's small bush fires she had flaming up everywhere, which will keep you turning the pages to see what she does or how she responded to situation, the woman has such a wicket tongue. --I think the author was trying to prove a point to counter the judgement handed over to Jessa, and I'm not sure if I liked it. This dislike is not against the author or the storyline, it's just to say in my opinion to uncover all those who judge as hypocrites damn near validated Jessa betrayal, and I just like calling a spade a spade. You read it and let me know what you think. The drama is good, not over the top. The situations are true to life, as well as their solutions are believable.

This story just seem to get better as it goes along, if you haven't gotten your copy yet run and your copies today,, because the next book is on its way! "The Pleasure Trap" set to drop this October 2014..... So catch up.... This novel gets a 5 out do 5 stars.

The Pleasure of Pain by, Shameek A. Speight

The Pleasure of Pain   

I really don't know where to start.  I'm not sure if I ever stated that I really don't read books about the drug game, it's not that I don't like them, I'm just not interested in them, but I'm branching out some and I have a few in my lineup to be read.

 I have this novel in a Kindle format, and as an audiobook, from First the Kindle version, which I purchased on Sept. 10, 2012. I mentioned my purchased date because I have seen that this title now shows an update published date of: May 14, 2014. The reason why I'm pointing out the publication date is because the version, which I purchased back in 2012 was poorly formatted. This was why it took me some time to complete it. Once I learned there were an audio version of the novel, I ventured in once more. Ebooks are supposed to read just the same as its printed version, so they should look similar, even if they are not by their nature. -There should be no space between paragraphs, margins should be set properly and so on, and so on. This was not the case with this novel (he is far from alone with this problem, even I screwed it up first uploaded version, and haven't corrected it yet, but this isn't about me). So I hope the revised version cleaned up the mishaps and produced a better reading product.

There were many editing errors found throughout the novel. The audio version from, narrated by: Mr. Gates, length: 3 hrs and 46 min., format: Unabridged, offered some help, but even with the audio version you can hear the errors, and formatting mistakes through the narration.  
I heard a lot about this book and about the author, Shameek Speight, so I decided to download the book and see what all the fuss was about. I hate to say, I didn't see it. I won't take nothing away from the author. This man is selling more books than I am, but I just could not find what the rave was all about, which makes not question the author, I'm questioning the readers. Yeah think about that for a second. I know pretty covers will draw you in, and this 'Pleasure Series' covers are top notch.

The story moved fast, damn near too fast, which I think if the author would have eased up off the gas, the characters would have been better developed. The back story on the characters didn't really tell me who they were and why I should care for them. The character Bless was defined well, and I understood him. I got the story on the four ladies but there wasn't enough information there for to me develop a relationship with them, or to even care for them, and they really undergo some shit in this novel, but without a well defined back story it can weaken the development of the character and that is what happen here.

Now if you like action, and drama, this novel has it. If you like erotica, there is a whole lot of f**king going on between these pages, almost too much, but its not erotica, its porn, so if you're young, put the book down and back away.

The novel was very predicable, if you're a mystery solver, you won't have any problems figuring out who betrayed the crew, and you won't have a problem figuring out who was going to die and who wasn't.  Even thought I knew what was going to happen at the end of the novel, damn did I enjoy reading it! -I love action and drama and it played out like a movie in my head, and I liked that.

I have part two of the series, "The Pleasure of Pain 2" in my Kindle ebook collection already and I will read it, as well as part 3. I hope I will be able to deliver a better review. This novel I give 2 1/2 stars out of 5 stars.

Mistress No More by: Niobia Bryant

  Mistress No More

My, my, my this series is only getting better. As an author I wondered how Ms. Bryant was going to start this volume of the series, and than I wondered where the he'll will she take it? Well this author answered my questions and then some, and how so you asked? Well the life of the characters are driven by the storyline,  the storyline is driven by the subplots, the subplots are defined and executed by the author's Character Development Skills.  Poor Character Development leads to weak characters,  undefined subplots, confusion, and sloppy execution of other elements needed to tell a good story. The author Ms. Bryant was able to take her characters and take this story into a direction I didn't consider and to that I say, "Bravo!"

My version of this novel was an audiobook purchased from It was narrated by (the  seductive voice of the grown and sex), Scoozi Cheyenne (Ooo I got a thang for this woman). The book runs for 9 hours and 23 minutes, which is about the average time 10 hours audiobook (ruffly around or above 300 pages), and it was Published by: Recorded Books.

Now how did author Niobia craft this tale? Well do you remember those issues our 3 herons had back in, "Message from a Mistress?" Well those issues never did get resolved in the first book because the issues was used as pawns, but in this venture those same issues are strongholds which must be addressed. Now can you say 'drama.' Now I love me some drama, and a good damn cat fight, and the author severed me up a plate that left my belly full, and tongue dangling.

The three friends Jaime, Renee and Aria who all had some deep dark secrets which was unknown to each other back in the first book was now comforted with the realization that their perfect world and secrets lifestyles have crumbled and surfaced. Picking up the pieces and moving forward became a challenge for each all the women, and their mates.

The character development was excellent. Each person was unique and believable, although it was interesting to see the Wandering Husband, had undergone a personality change, well actually he displayed several personalities, but the author did established how he was capable of changing personalities within the first novel, which helped with making what was uncharacteristic, plausible. The plot was driven by the subplots of each woman's situation. Each subplot tension builder was on the mark, which climaxed the story to an explosive ending. 

This is a series I actually like, and I don't like many. I gave this novel 5 stars out of 5. It was a smashed and a book which will draw you in and have you talking back to the pages. If you haven't read the, "Mistress Series," by Niobia Bryant and you like Romance Suspense and Drama, it's a must read series.

Message From A Mistress by: Niobia Bryant

Message from a Mistress

I believe this novel by Author Niobia Bryant, was her debut novel, and she knocked it out the ball park with this work, which was cleverly written.

My version of this novel was an audiobook purchased from It was narrated by (the seductive voice of), Scoozi Cheyenne. It plays 8 hours and 44 minutes, which is about the average time 8 to 10 hours, and it's Publisher: Recorded Books.

I loved the way Author Niobia weaved this tale because the mistress within this story took a back seat to her three friends Jaime, Renee and Aria who all had some deep dark secrets which was unknown to each other but the mistress who had highjacked one of their husband's. 

The character development was excellent. The plot was driven by curiosity because you wanna know who's husband wasn't coming home, while the subplots revealed the reasons of how a backstabbing bitch was afforded the opportunity to place them in their situation. 

What situation, you asked? Well, these three women, Jaime, Renee and Aria all received a text message from their friend, Jessa while having a spa day. The message told them that she had been sleeping with one of their husbands, and that they were in love, they brought a house together, and that him and her was running off to live happily ever after. That's the situation I'm talking about.

These women sum up their lives in the few agonizing hours afforded to them before they learn which of their husband's will not be returning from their fishing trip. -And you know what the mind can do to you when haven't been living right. You know what I'm talking about. That little affair you had, that walk on the wild side, lying on your ovaries, and little stuff like that can really weight on ones emotions, and it does.

The writing is clever, the characters are real, the situation happens more often than not. I gave this novel 4 stars out of 5. It will surly entertain you, and make you wonder about how you living.

Secret Society (Secret Society1) by: Miasha

Secret Society (Secret Society 1)

First off, I have to pat myself on the back for lisening and completing this book, I see I have matured some.  Secret Society by, Miasha is a book I would not read, nor listen to for that part,not because there was anything wrong other then the subject matter, which involved the two central characters, Celess and Tiny.

First I listen to the version, which was narrated by, Claudia Aleck who by in turn did a wonderful job and it felt good to hear her voice once again after becoming acostomed to her picturent power of verbal illusions. The audiobook was published by Blackstone Audio Inc., it plays for 4 hours and 16 minutes long, which is not bad at all for such a well rounded, fast pace story.

The author Miasha calls herself a writer and she is mistaken, she is much more than a writer, she's a Storyteller. When you can enchaned and captured the being of your readers and transpored them to another demension, which voids them the knowledge of themselves, transforming them into that "fly on the wall," you have gone beyond the scope of writing, but you have created a solid foundation within the space of a persons mind from an illusion makes you that of a Storyteller.

The story is about two young peoples working hard to obtain something quickly, which can only be obtain with vested time and oneself. Now you know I never say about a story because if I tell it to you, then why read it. -But as I said had I known firsthand about the main characters lifestyle, I would not picked this novel to listen to, or to read and the reason for that is because I'm a man, and at my age I know that to be a fact, so their lifestyle challenged me and I was not bothered by Celess and Tiny being who they were, and who they are, and what they do turns this into a must read or must listen to novel. These two ladies give gold diggers a run for their money, and as life would have it when live in the fast lane, you are bound to crash and that does come to past. 

I gave Secret Society an 4.5 out of 5 stars. The book is a fast read, with a fast pace storyline. I do believe you would enjoy it even if it's not your normal cup of tea. You might even learn a few things.

Diary of a Mistress by: Miasha

Diary of a Mistress

My wife always says, "A man just don't stand a chance."

When she first said this, I was slow to speak and gave great thought to the statement she made, because I was ready to debate her claim. I was about to pick up the flag and march into battle with her over such a claim. --I pondered, and  pondered some more, then came to the conclusion, she was right, a  man just don't stand a chance, and this short novel shows just one aspect on how men don't stand a chance against the games a woman plays.

Women know other women, but she doesn't always sure of her man. This tiny bit of doubt is all the other woman needs to spin her web, and with that in mind, Diary of a Mistress will take you on a journey no one should ever have to travel.

Author Miasha was born a Storyteller, and man can she tell a story. Diary of a Mistress was a damn good read, although most the words was delivered to me from my Audible app, which was narrated  for 4 hours and 54 minutes long by, Claudia Alick, who done a wonderful job.

There wasn't many characters and the few the author used, she used quite effectively. Character development was excellent. Subplots was and tension points was perfectly set in their proper places. The hardcover book was well crafted, with a clean font and solid pages.

The story is told from the mistress, Angela's p.o.v., which glues you to your seat and set the wheels into motion of making this novel a page turner. Angela is charmed by her instructor, Carlos. She befriends him and as time advances, so does their relationship. Angela wants to take their relationship to the next level, which puts Carlos and his wife Monica marriage on a road confusion and distrust, and see why a man just don't stand a chance.

This novel is a damn good read and do not think you would be disappointed with spending your money or your time. I give this one 5 stars.

Where Did We go Wrong 1 & 2, by Monica Mathis Stowe

Where Did We Go Wrong


Where Did We Go Wrong Again

I first read the Kindle eBook version, and listen to the, audio version, narrated by Hillary Hawkins. I kinda liked these two novels. I will admit it took me a minute to get into the story. I will not blame the author, Monica for the slow start, I blame the story itself. The three main characters in, "Where Did I Go Wrong," were... simple said, was young. Their issues were, juvenile, but don't undermine the story and here's why. I'm in my mid/late 50's, with over 36 years of marriage, and I lived these issues when I was the of these three young ladies, but I stuck with the novel because the writing was good enough to get me involved emotionally and mentally.

The Kindle edition was nice and clean, no funny coding or weird stuff. The edition was 8 hours, and 51 minutes long, published by, The Literary Publishing Group, and again the narrator was Hillary Hawkins.

The novel has a lot of characters, the author Monica, does a good job in the character development. The subplot and plot points were set good, the story did move well, although the ending was abrupt. The error the author made here is one of the same I committed as well. I learned ending the story at a critical climax doesn't make the reader anything other than PISSED OFF. I learned the hard way I was sculled, received threats, and was punched at two separated readers. So hopefully she received some advise on closing and opening sequels

Narrator Hillary Hawkins she did a good job with separating the many characters employed within the pages of this story, but I don't think she was suited for all the characters, I think a male narrator could have been used, and for this reason Narration received a 3. 

The story is full of drama, and as I always say, I love drama, and if you love drama you will not be disappointed. These three young ladies will take you through a range of emotions as they cause and work out their particular problems, and boy do they have some issues. Most of the storyline is believable. There were some flags, but the author ironed them out and them seem plausible, so overall the read, or listening is good.

What did I find out of place, annoying, or totally unbelievable? -The two central characters Joy and Allen. Now this is where I see the book was written by a woman for women. Joy should have been Allenless, because her constant whining and distrust with Allen just pissed me off. The man done took a bullet, and nearly died for you, so who cares if he didn't tell you about everyone he sexed while he was living his life without you in it!  --Is what I wanted to say.  (Okay granted the crazy chick tried to kill her, but that's different).  --And was just too good to be true. He did most things what a would do for his woman, but he was too concerning, too protective, just plain old overbearing. Baby this, and baby that, baby, baby, baby. If she farted he wanted to know if it hurt her, and then he would analyzed it to see if the gas mixture is okay. A man like that has issues, they're over possessive. But other than those two wacky relationship, the two novels are a good read. My overall rating for both novels is 3 stars.

My First My Last by: Lacey Silks


  My First My Last  

I read story on my Kindle App. The formatting, typesetting, and overall composition was excellent. The author Lacey Silks does a wonderful job in this short story with just two characters. The plot was simple, the plot points was set properly. This short story was written with all the elements necessary to be called a romance story.

The story was told by the main character, Rose, who became widowed two years earlier, and at this point in time she was confronted by the man she gave her virginity to as a teenager.

Rose tells the story from the present, to the past, back to the present. Both character's true feelings are revealed, and the author throw in an erotic moment shared by the couple.

I seen that other reviews on this short story are mixed. Many readers found it to be too short. Granted it has the potential to be a full length novel, but it's a short story and the author did a great job in bringing all the necessary elements together to produce a complete thought.

I gave this S.S. 4 stars. If you like erotic-romance stories, this is a nice one. It reads fast, smooth, and a little tingly.

Big Girls Do Cry by: Carl Weber

Big Girls Do Cry (Big Girls Series - Bk 2)

It taken me a good minute to write this review because my, was spinning over the details and situations within this novel. It turned out I read this series out of order, I somehow read "Torn Between two Lovers," before I read this one, which left me rereading and buying the audio versions of both novels so could put the contents of the two novels and two audio books into a perspective view.

Big Girls Do Cry was an interesting read since I had already read it's sequel before hand. I first read the hardcover version, which as I mention, left me somewhat confused because I just knew, "Torn Between two Lovers," were was the first installment. Notice I said first... Yeah, yeah, I was all messed up on this series. That's what happens when you fall behind in your reading, and there was no indication within it's subtitle as to the volume it was, so I flipped-flopped the series.

Carl Weber is an excellent story teller. The Storyline was well developed, as with all the subplots, and their plot points. For new and young writers a novel is created by the mechanical skills the author processes and is used to craft their vision, Carl Weber has those skills. --Character development was excellent, no one was out of place, missed used, or under-developed.

The audio version was narrated by Teresa Floyd. She does a very good job driving you through all the twist and turns of these crazy ass characters for 11 hours and 22 minutes, or 352 pages of nothing but deceit and betrayal to feed upon.

The novel is primarily centered around Isis psychotic butt, and her psychosis will have you spinning with mixed emotions from the things she does to her sister Egypt, who in my moral consciousness was wrong for getting married, and that's an underline issue for the mess they're twined within. -But you judge it for yourself. The next problem comes between Loraine, Leon, and Jerome, Loraine's close gay friend and former lover. Yes I said former lover that's now gay. Loraine has no trust for her husband, minuteman Leon, and believes he's cheating on her, this woman turns her unstable, sexually deprived world upside down when she's reacquainted with a gentleman from her past.

Now last but not least is the proud and gay, Jerome. He loves turning straight guys out, which is like any man, always looking for a virgin, and for the life of me don't understand why. The whole desire and concept of fooling around with virgins is just asinine, but maybe that's just me. Getting back, this thing with turning straight guys out leads him to find The One, and learns you should never dip and flip The One.

Big Girls do Cry - 5 stars out of 5. It's full of drama, and I like drama. I liked it because it had a lot going on, and the author did a wonderful job keeping it under-control. Book 2 of the series is a must read.
