QUIET STORM





Number 11

I use to listen to WHUR in Washington, DC to Melvin Lindsey’s “Quiet Storm.” It was soulful melody and moody harmonious music. I still miss him. To this day, radio stations everywhere are using that format. The guy was more than smooth, he was beautiful. I was listening to my iPod today and one of the songs by the Isley Brothers made me think of him. I will go back to “church” tomorrow or Tuesday. Today, let’s talk about LOVE. That one word - - LOVE!!! It has taken down the Roman civilization, Captains of Wars, Presidents, and other desirable men. As Tina Turner states, “What’s Love Got to Do with it.” A lot!!

Usually I only give you books for the Kindle, but in this case the book below is an exception. If you have watched the TV show, “The Gates,” a vampire/mystery show on ABC, you may have noticed the good looking black tech guy. He has no character name since he was only on the one episode, but his real name is Kendrick Cross. He was on the cover of Ms. Grundy book, but now there’s a women.

GOTTA HAVE IT (URBAN SOUL PRESENTS) – Paperback - $6.99

When you log into Amazon, you will now see a women. I tell you the boy looks damn good with no shirt on!!! Yummy!!! Oh well, I can dream.
Ashelei Thompson, beautiful and working in the music industry is fighting lies, scandals, etc. etc. According to my girlfriend Jessica, it got lots of eroticisms and a well written plot. I think the title speaks for itself, don’t you? She has only written this one book and it came out in 2007. Will have to contact her and ask when her next one is.

GLORIA MALLETTE
WHAT’S DONE IN THE DARK - $6.99

Celeste and her sister Katrina are rivals. When Celeste’s hubby is found murdered, Katrina blames her for not “taking care of her man.” Now Katrina’s husband is very ill and a second wife shows up. Somebody see if this is a reality show on TV now because I suspect it is.

NIOBIA BRYANT

Ohh! Now this is romance like my girl the writer Brenda Jackson. You see, strong, handsome black men do exist and not just in books. Jade and Kaeden are on a camping trip when “BANG, OH! BANG!” the sex is great and the love is better.
