Toss in the trappings of a life that, in their own ways and for their own reasons, they’re trying to leave behind, plus the women who seem to want to “rescue” them, and In These Streets is quick-but-packed read about three men who learn that sometimes you can’t count on anyone but those who’ve known you the longest and the best.
I am already poised for book two, because in true Shelly Ellis form, this book leaves you wanting more, more, more!

Black Girls Must Die Exhausted: A Novel by Jayne Allen Genres: African American, Contemporary Women, Fiction Buy on Amazon Goodreads “Black girls must die exhausted” is something that 33-year-old Tabitha Walker has heard her grandmother say before. Of course, her grandmother (who happens to be white) was referring to the 1950’s and what she observed in the nascent times of civil rights. With a coveted position as a local news reporter, a “paper-perfect” boyfriend, and a standing Saturday morning appointment with a reliable hairstylist, Tabitha never imagined how this phrase could apply to her as a black girl in contemporary times – that is, until everything changed. An unexpected doctor’s […]
Sometimes I feel extremely fortunate to know some super talented, entertaining writers. Farrah Rochon is among them, and one of the best I have ever read. I thought the Bayou Dreams series was good… and then came Maplesville. And then she restarted the Holmes Brothers (which was her first book) series. Cherish Me is Book 7 in this series and every gotdang one of them is so good.
I think one of my favorite parts of the book is the letters. They let the story play out, in the words of Roy and Celeste, even though they couldn’t be in the same room. Ms. Jones recently shared a piece about how technology can affect and script communication between characters; sometimes a novel has to be set in a time and a place that makes communication difficult. At one point in the book, there’s no way for one character to contact the other, leading one to walk right into a trap, per se… the tension that that situation built was palpable and effective.
Bill’s plan does not go unfulfilled. Being away from DC gives Janelle the perspective she needs and had not considered. Her mind begins to turn– about the “safe” direction that her life was taking and whether that path was as safe as she considered it; and about whether a woman could fall for a man completely different than she’d ever known.
I am a total sucker for a music/musician romance and I could. not. stop. drooling. over the cover to this book (I MEAN LOOK AT IT) so when she sent a call out to people interested in reading the book for review, I slid into those DM’s to shoot my shot.
See, Twitter can be used for good!
I’ve been ready for By the Hour since I read the last word of Off the Clock, so it is no surprise at all, that I clenched my fist and squealed finally!!!! when By the Hour was announced. Ya’ll know me, I’m a Roni Loren stan and she rarely if ever disappoints me. I loved the “real life” characteristics of the hero/heroine and the RAUNCH-EEEE sexy times that happen in this book.
All around, super enjoyable. Another hit for Roni Loren!
Okay, so first, I’m SO HAPPY I read this book because it is relevant to my current pursuit, which is my WIP, about a woman who used to be a dancer. It was great to read this and get in the mindset of the lifestyle. I’ve already been thinking about going over my WIP and setting the mood and atmosphere right, so this book was so helpful.
