Book Review: Death in the City

When I’m not working or writing, I’m reading and writing about reading. Here’s my latest book review: Death in the City.

LeTara Writes Book Reviews

What can I say about Death in the City other than Whew! This book played with my emotions and took me to places that I typically read about and pray that I never experience in real life. Death in the City most certainly lives up to its title and cover. This is the third book I’ve read by Keith Kareem Williams and he has earned both my respect and my readership, making his way up my list of favorite authors.

The synopsis reads: A mother loses her son and completely loses her faith in the God she had served faithfully for her entire life. Trapped lovers try desperately to escape a lifestyle that, for a time, had comforted and kept them alive in a city that has always been trying to devour them. A reluctant assassin crosses paths with a woman who is determined to collect a pound of flesh…

Book Review: CoEd by James Fant

My latest book review: CoEd by James Fant. Check him out!

LeTara Writes Book Reviews

Is there really a such thing as a platonic relationship between men and women or is that another one of those abstract concepts? That’s a question that many people attempt to answer on a daily basis and it is one of the many questions author James Fant attempts to answer in his novel CoEd.

The synopsis reads: Can a man and a woman be best friends without somebody catching feelings?

Travis Barber and Sade Styles are best friends of the opposite sex. Despite what everyone thinks, they are not getting busy…yet.

Co-owners of a popular barbershop/salon in named CoEd, Travis and Sade spend the bulk of their days together. But when Sade’s apartment lease runs out and Travis offers her the spare bedroom of his newly built house, will they end up sharing more than just the utilities?

This witty, fast-paced romance seeks to answer the question: can a man…

Book Review: Glass Goddesses, Concrete Walls by Keith Kareem Williams

Check out my review of Glass Goddesses, Concrete Walls by Keith Kareem Williams. It’s a helluva book!

LeTara Writes Book Reviews

Mixed Emotions. Intrigue. Admiration. Horror. Respect. So many adjectives to describe my feelings towards Glass Goddesses, Concrete Walls by Keith Kareem Williams. The story is a thought-provoking roller-coaster that will leave you speechless.

The synopsis reads: In the middle of the night, our unnamed protagonist wakes to find Diana’s gun pointed at this head and he recognizes bloody murder in her eyes. While facing a scorned woman’s wrath, many of his past entanglements replay in his mind. Memories of women he has loved or refused to love surface like ghosts from the grave to haunt what could be his last moments. As he tries to reason with her for the sake of everything he has to live for, he realizes that there is so much that he deserves to pay for. Love, guns, sex and bullets can all be deadly in the wrong hands.

Ultimately, the best word I can…

Book Review: Blended Ink

Blended Ink: Erotic Anthology

Recently, I got the chance to read Blended Ink after purchasing it nearly a month ago. I had been in talks with Chris Ringo, one of the authors, for quite some time about purchasing the book. Unfortunately, a few days after I told him I’d buy it from him, he passed away. However, another door was opened as I was able to get in touch with Shawn Starling, who is another contributing author to the book, and I’ve been introduced to some of Starling’s other work as a result. I finally got around to reading it and now I’m able to give my take on this anthology. More

Book Review: Skin Experience by Ringo

13382241_1760572820847160_1773313842_n

You can’t find him on Amazon or at Barnes & Noble. Most people who know of his work are either in his circle or are friends of the members of his circle. Somehow, despite us having no friends in common (and me having no memory of anything else we might have had in common prior to our first conversation) I came across Chris Ringo on Facebook and learned of his journey as an independent author. He writes, of course, but he also designs his own covers and markets when he can. After a few months of stalking his Facebook page and seeing his cover art, I decided to take the plunge and invest $15 into this author’s dream. Skin Experience is his official debut novel. The synopsis reads:

Does size matter? Of course, it plays a major role in how hard one works and plays. When blessed with a large gift, smaller minds will seek to hold the sweet dream from coming bigger and better than imagined. Chicago, Illinois isn’t a place for the weak link. Xavier “Sponge” Hill learns the growing pains of fighting words. He’s thrusted into a chain of events which will require him to erect greatness within…Skin Experience. More
