I’ll Come Back for You- Charish Reid

I don’t go out of my way to spook myself if I can help it but when Charish tweeted that her next book is a Thriller/SpookFest or what us Jamaicans call a (Duppy Story) I knew I could not pass it up. Charish is a boss writer for one and  2; maybe a little adrenaline is just what I need in these low-energy days. I must say, I was thoroughly delighted; the suspense, the vivid descriptions, thaaaa romance… oh yes.

The Write Escape- Charish Reid

I’m sick of dealing with men wh can’t get their shit together. Between the ones who gaslight me and lie to my face and the ones who can’t figure out what they want, i’m sitting here looking foolish

Antonia girl, That’s exactly how I be feeling too, I totally get you. 

This book was a joy to read. Without giving too much away, Antonia described her experience as the ‘eat pray love’ for black girls at some point in the novel and I am inclined to agree with her.

ONE WITH YOU (Book 5 Crossfire series) Review- Sylvia Day

This entire work has been so anti-climatic and lackluster that I couldn’t even recall if I had actually read it.

So I finished the last installment in the Crossfire series some weeks ago and decided to tackle a review today, problem is, I couldn’t remember if I had read the book or not. Ridiculous right. YUUP!

While I thoroughly enjoyed books 1 and 2, I still hold the belief that Day could’ve wrapped up the series in book 3 and not let us all suffer through an uninteresting 4 and an even unpalatable book 5.

If you are reading this review, I’m assuming that you’ve already suffered the first 4 installment so nothing I say here can surprise you, then you’ll know that Eva and Gideon are already married.  This book could’ve easily been book 3 as it began to some degree where that book ended- They been married but still pretending they are just still engaged. The bulk of the book is Eva quitting her job, Gideon getting use to ‘married’ life and both navigating the peril of going public and the consequences, especially for Gideon.  They’re is absolutely no information or new plot except towards the end of the novel where Day decide to give Eva’s Mom a story and voila- a sub-plot is formed. It’s like you are now reading a different book altogether.

*****wait a minute here,

who’s story is it again? why are we now embarking on Monica’s story so far into the series. We kinda get the idea that Day is now fresh out of ideas for the Gideon/Eva story and is now desperately clutching at something that her readers may find interesting. Kinda like reading a trashy story in a tabloid and following up the next day for more juicy details only to realized they have fully run out of steam.

Cary’s story which for a moment got a bit interested there was abandoned and you have the feeling like you’ve been cheated out of something that could’ve been very good- or awful- since we don’t know how stretched that could’ve ended up as well.

ooops.

If you must read this, save your money and maybe look for a version online or- just continue to think that Gideon and Eva do happily ever after- The End.  There really isn’t much more to it.

Definitely a 1 star rating.
