Today is #WIPWednesday but, gloriously, I do not have a WIP. Yesterday I decided that aside from a fun story for the fanfiction archive, I am done writing for publication for the year. I am tired, my brain is tired, I would have loved to publish four books this year, but my miiiiiiiiinds tellin’ me nooooooo.
Aannyway, I wanted to share a snippet from Curl & Dye with ya’ll. If you haven’t read it and need some convincing, look no further than Reading Romance In Color’s review of Curl & Dye. She enjoyed the small town but still black centered dynamic and the grown & sexy aspect of KC and Leslie’s relationship. Speakin’ of grown & sexy…
I highly encourage everyone to grab this book, put it on your list, and then sit back and relax and enjoy the read. This isn’t a fast paced wham-bam-zoom storyline. This is a beautifully drawn-out tale that’s finally able to be told.
Saidah’s Christmas memories have been warped by personal tragedy. A chance encounter brings her unexpected love and a new outlook on life.
Here’s to finding love where you least expect it!
by DL White Genres: African American Romance, Contemporary, Romance Format: eBook Source: Amazon, Barnes & Noble, ibooks, Kobo Good morning and happy Writing Wednesday! It’s a super day, and I’ll tell you why: my holiday short, Unexpected, is live and kicking! I have never kicked off the holiday season so early, but I really needed it, and I hope others that need some holiday cheer will find it in my cute and fun little ditty. A few people may recognize this short from a story I posted on my website a few years ago. It’s been niggling at me because… whatever happened to Will and Saidah?? So I took it […]
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!
Ellis and Devorah (or Bee, as she is affectionately called by friends and family) have known each other for years (he’s her ex-boyfriend’s brother and a close family friend) and have even tried the relationship thing a time or two. Ellis’ notorious playboy ways have always landed him square in the “Not Him” column. Not to mention, Bee doesn’t want to be the girl that has dated both of the Everett boys.
To say I enjoyed this book would be an understatement and I’m already waiting on the next one! Snap this one up and enjoy!
Girl. GIRL! I have to admit to not reading Phyllis Bourne before but you can bet your sweet behind that I will be catching up on her backlist, because this book is GOOD. Phyllis says her motto is BIG DUMB SEXY FUN and all of it was in this book. Funny, romantic, engaging and a very fulfilling read with some hints to followup novels so yay!
Today’s review is courtesy one of my favorite Book Bloggers, Lisa at Reads4Pleasure.com. We have incredibly similar reading tastes and I always know that if she loves something, I should take a look! When The Other Side of the Pillow popped up, we both decided we’d read it to see what it was about, then thought it would be fun to cross post reviews. This is my first crosspost, so haaaaayyyyy R4P Readers!
