1.0 out of 5 stars Do not purchase for Epson LW-400, September 22, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The user's guide for the Epson LW-400 label maker has this listed as the part number for an adapter. This adapter does not fit, it's to large. I'm waiting to see if I will be 'approved' for a refund.

5.0 out of 5 stars Warmer good for candles and coffee mugs., June 26, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I got this for my office to see if it would keep my coffee warm. It takes a while of course for it to warm up the cup but I turn the warmer on first thing. While I'm getting the kids ready for school and all that I leave my candle on there and by the time I get home it's good and warm. Then, I make my coffee and get to work and it keep my coffee warm with this method. I'm buying another one for my living room candles. So far (2 months), not to bad for under $6.00.


BURN'S WORLD: A Love Triangle (A new adult and contemporary romance novel. A free book)
BURN'S WORLD: A Love Triangle (A new adult and contemporary romance novel. A free book)
Price: $0.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Burn's World, June 11, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Burn's World was a great read. I was looking for something light with a little humor. Though there are some very emotional and disturbing moments in the book, Burn did get some chuckles out of me.

Burn and her sister Angel live with their aunt and her two daughters. Burn is 17 and has way too much responsibility for a 17 year old (and she has been taking care of herself and her sister long before this age).

Burn's life is going on like normal (normal for her life) until several events turn our happy go luck Burn into a confused and brokenhearted Burn. She is pursed by two men, both with their own life issues, she has a guardian angel and a fiery (her words) godmother and then there is the gift.

I will warn you that there are a lot of things in this book that rub people the wrong way (racial slurs, stereotyping, racial issues, cursing, abuse (emotional, physical), child endangerment, sex, abortions) but I think it stays and shows the world and life that the Burns' of the world live. I found myself wondering, "Where are these kids parents?" a lot. It was explained for the most part, why all these kids seemed to raising themselves be it because they were privileged, the parents/guardian just didn't care or were not around.

The ending I sure did not expect. I thought Burn would have made better choices but then again, she is only 17/18 so...
I will definitely be reading part II; I have to see how this will end, though I have an idea.

There are some errors and though the story has some paranormal elements, I feel it would have done just as well without, though the fiery godmother was just as crazy as Burn. The story did it's job. It made me laugh, made me shake my head, made me cry and even made me want to move right on into Part II.


3 Tymez Dirty: Chopped and Screwed (Dirty South Trilogy)
3 Tymez Dirty: Chopped and Screwed (Dirty South Trilogy)
by Darrell King
Edition: Paperback
Price: $12.77

4.0 out of 5 stars 3 TYMEZ DIRTY, June 2, 2014
In 3 Tymez Dirty, we follow Godiva (a pop star), ATL (a rap star) and Anna (Godiva's long time friend and personal assistant) as they navigate their way through industry. Both Godiva and ATL are at the top of their careers and even though Anna did her best to keep them apart the two were drawn to each other. Both with enough issues that they should have been trying have been getting together with counselors instead of another person.

I'll be honest; books about hip hop just don't really do it for me. I like them best when the characters are all fictional instead of name dropping real artist but I guess that is a way to draw some readers in and build up that world for the story. For about the first 20% (up to chapter 3) I was kind of bored, then Anna met with ATL and that is when the story picked up for me.

I found myself feeling sorry for Anna because sometimes it's hard to say no when you feel you owe someone a big debt but other times I was like why would you do that, that was so stupid. ATL and Godiva keep you on your toes, waiting for the fallout of their choices, but I think Anna kind of grounds the story. I kept waiting and thinking okay they are going to get theirs, no not this chapter maybe the next one. No not the next chapter maybe the following chapter and that is how the author kept me wanting to read the story. I was a little upset at the ending and I really can't say why without spoiling the story but I think the author should have taken the story out a little farther.

There is plenty of sex, drugs and I like the idea female drug lords. I wanted more of them in the story but I'm sure they will appear in the next installment also. The story moved along at a casual pace but with all that was going on and should be happening I expected more action. A lot of time was spent on the sex and drugs of ATL to a point where I wanted to skim because until the home visit. I found the tension between him and Anna was great and I love how she handled him and helped him. The story could also use another once over for editing. It's not so distracting that it takes away from the story but another once over could remove a lot of the simple errors.

(I received a copy of this story in exchange for an honest review).

5.0 out of 5 stars War Angel II: Where Angels Fear to Tread, March 1, 2014
War Angel II – Where Angels Fear to Tread picks up where War Angel left off (if you have not read book one, stop reading now). Yes, in order to understand and follow the story, I feel you need to read War Angel. Jahaira and Lenox, after their run in with Anna and the twins (Anya and Anika), try to put as much distance as they can between them and the past deeds that haunts them.

The story’s narration is in 3rd person. The genre is fiction but War Angel gives you a host of other genres and subgenres (romance, paranormal, thriller, suspense and fantasy) and Keith does a good job of keeping it all balanced.

In War Angel II, we follow Jahaira and Lenox through her pregnancy. Since they have removed themselves from the normal, fast pace lifestyle they were use to in Brooklyn, they are forced to focus on all the events that have transpired. Their love for each other was tested in book one and continues to be tested in book two. The burden gets to be too much at times and Lenox falls into some bad habits while Jahaira feels alone and becomes overly trusting. Will Jahaira be able to forgive Lenox for killing her parents? Will Lenox realize that he sacrificed too much of himself, his soul, by loving Jahaira? Can you love someone to much? What happens when family is at its most basic level? When family is just a scientific ranking and the only way to survive is to be stronger and/or more conning than the next member; you will see in Where Angels Fear to Tread.

Part II also introduces us to several new characters. I didn’t think Jahaira and Lenox would have to deal with anyone more unstable than the twins and Anna but there are others that give the twins a run for their money. Lenox and Jahaira have to face their old and new foes as well as deal with ghost from their past. Every decision, every choice, has life or death consequences and Jahaira is up for the challenge. No longer is she the fragile girl that Lenox had to protect from her dysfunctional family. No, Jahaira has changed!

Get ready, War Angel II - Where Angels Fear to Tread is going to take you on a ride of love, murder and mayhem. I could say much more but I don’t want to give away not one detail of the story. The best part of all of this is trying to figure out which move in this game of life the players will make. Lenox (like in book I) had me yelling at him by the time I was about 50% into the story. War Angel II - Where Angels Fear to Tread is about 260 pages and I would be remiss if I didn't mention the flaws I found. There were a few typos and one of the character’s, that ended up being a big part of the story, needed a bit more to build the backstory.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lady Swagger, February 15, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Lady Swagger-The Beginning is a fast paced introduction into the lives of Nikki and Dream. Nikki decides to celebrate her birthday at club Lady Swagger and after catching her lover, Dream, with another woman the drama in the parking lot quickly escalate. The night for Nikki doesn't end all to bad because is still able to celebrate and achieve a high that has nothing to do with alcohol.

Dream has major issues and she can't stand to see Nikki with anyone else. Nikki is hers and she will do whatever it takes to make sure that no one else gets her Nikki.

A lot happens when these few pages and you will not have a dull moment. There is a fight, a love scene, confessions and death...and this is just The Beginning.

This review is from: ASHES (Kindle Edition)
I gave one star because one, this story needs to be edited. The format is off, worded are missing, extra words are added, wrong words, missing punctuation, wrong use of lower / upper case, wrong name used, etc. This was like reading a second draft.

As for the story, I don't feel like the plot line was developed enough in this short story to make me want to keep reading. Also, I really don't like detailed descriptions of incest.

I would not recommend this story to anyone as it is currently written.

4.0 out of 5 stars Blackwood's, November 6, 2013
3.5

Blackwood is a dark tale. Don't expect the loving vampires or werewolves with this story. There are two killers on the loose a vampire and a hybrid and they don't show any mercy to the wolves and humans that fall prey. The story is full of heartache, murder and torture. I like that since the authors add a villain they went all the way and didn't half step.

I like the story but the Blackwood's were so hyped up and I kept waiting and waiting for them to show me what they were made of and they did...nothing. It was such a letdown. The only one that got out there and did something to prove their worth was our tortured soul Wallace. I really enjoyed him and I felt for him having to give up Lily. I also enjoyed the mysterious Murphy clan too. I'm looking forward to reading more about them and hopefully the Blackwoods' will step up and show why their name is feared. By the time Lily and Bryn finally hooked up, I really didn't care anymore and found myself wishing the story was the other way around. That Bryn was the one that she sleep with and Wallace ended up being her mate. I wanted a better fight but the villains put a hurting on the Blackwood's. Hopefully the next round will be a better match.

I received this book in exchange of and honest review. LoP

4.0 out of 5 stars The Escorts, October 28, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
3.5 STARS

After having their dreams crushed, Frank Lean and James Dawn (aka Buck Nasty) find themselves in need of money and fast. Jock is always there by design but when his plans backfire, he loses his hold on his assets. Buck Nasty and Frank find themselves setting off for new adventures.

I like the story (how could you not with a character named Buck Nasty?)and I enjoyed letting Frank and Buck take me on all their rendezvous. Even though this is labeled as an erotica I found it well done. This wasn't mental erotica this was physical erotica which is to be expected with a short story about escorts. There isn't time to woo the mind but I like that it wasn't all raunchy. Of course the guys gave it rough when needed but there are a couple of easy going scenes. You have to give the people what they paid for.

The grammatical errors need to be addressed. The story itself was a 4 star read, for me. It was a nice, entertaining, solid short story. The pacing was pretty good for getting the story told in the amount of pages allowed. I gave it 3.5 for the errors. I just couldn't take a full star off because the story itself I like more than okay and that is the way the rating is set. I would love for the author to clean this up a bit. Most of the errors that irritated me were for punctuation and setting up the dialogue. I hesitated to give the 4 stars because based on how the rating is set up, this may not give the author the incentive needed to fix the errors.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ra's Point of View, October 21, 2013

This review is from: Ra: The bid (Kindle Edition)
I love this series. This book needs to be read after Stud 1 and 2.

I like that we get to see Ra's point of view because I was wonder how he felt while he was doing his 3 year sentence and all because Dre likes to pillow talk. There are bits and pieces of book 2 in this one but just enough to show you the timeline, like when Dre showed up for a visit. I like that Sa'id only gave you a little bit of it and didn't rehash the entire story.

Ra never stopped his hustle and still delivered a little street justice. I also like that we got to see the other parts of what was going on with Malik since Dre didn't talk with him much.

This is a short read, will only take you a couple of hours. I thought the pacing was good the writing is good but it needs to be cleaned up some for grammatical errors.

To answer the question at the end: Of course they should be, their chemistry is the best I've seen in a while for street lit.
