Book Review: ‘Billionaire Baddie’ by Cyn Alexander 5 plus stars!

For the last week I’ve been in bed, unwell. This book has been with me. I’ve never read anything by this author. There was a little bit of ‘hood’, a little bit of romance, a lot of suspense, a thrilling story, a self-made female billionaire I loved to death, and a hero millionaire I adored. As I read, I felt like the author is a natural born story-teller. It was a five plus stars read for me!

About The Book:

Indigo Ace had a rough life growing up. Her mother is a prostitute and her father is a pimp who despises her. Solace Mack is the only pimp in Atlanta, but when Indigo’s mother dies and Solace kicks his only daughter out on the streets, Indigo is forced to boss up. She follows in her father’s footsteps and becomes a female pimp, infringing on her father’s territory. Soon, she becomes the richest female in the south and Solace does everything he can to destroy the billion dollar empire his daughter built. It isn’t long before a war ensues between the father and the daughter and many lives are lost.

In the midst of it all, Indigo meets Bentlee Paxton, who is hood royalty. His name rings bells all over the country, and he’s ready to go to war in order to protect Indigo. While the two figure out what their future together holds, they’re forced to dodge bullets and fight off enemies.

Will they live to see their future? Better yet, will Indigo’s billion dollar empire fall at the hands of her father?

5 Plus Stars… For A New To Me Author!

I don’t typically read this genre, but the story-line sounded very intriguing. I am really glad I had the chance to read it. I’m not one to give away a plot or spoilers but here’s what I loved.

The characters I found them very well rounded and believable Indigo is a strong woman, who is just twenty-one by the time she is an actual billionaire. This is where I really do give props to the author, sometimes it’s hard to relate to young adult characters, but I never had that problem at all being an older reader, I really like Indigo and the way she drives the story forward it kept me so interested. Her story is one of a female who is given an opportunity, once her mother passes, she grabs it with both hands. Determined to move on from her ‘hood’ upbringing. I was very engaged in where she was on her way to all throughout this story.

The other characters are equally as interesting, the hero who Indigo ends up with Bentlee he also too is such a wonderful male lead. He is believable to read, non-typical, and really appealed to me as a character. The romance between these two I enjoyed experiencing the development, it was not instant there’s plenty of push and pull, but ultimately they fall for each other.

I found that the author’s story-telling really kept me turning pages, one moment the story would feel very much like and urban read, with lots happening, then there’s a location change. The characters and story head to the Maldives! I loved the location change, as the story also changes, the romance comes in. Then once back in Atlanta, the suspense, action, and story changes again. I found it well paced and exciting to read with the story-telling.

Overall, for me someone who is not a typical reader of the genre I really enjoyed this story, and I am very much looking forward to part two as it ends on a cliff- hanger. Again, typically I prefer a story to have a conclusion rather than leave me hanging, so here I really have to say the author has done an excellent job at grabbing readers. I will pre-order part two for it’s release next month. Overall five plus stars from my reading experience. Billionaire Baddie for me is a well written, engaging, enjoyable story with a little bit of everything from romance, suspense, and of course street life in Atlanta, featuring great like-able characters. I recommend it if you fancy something different to read, and enjoy reading or following strong female leads, with high stakes, expectations, a fearless attitude, and millionaire men who are very like-able! It’s a free read on Kindle Unlimited at the time of reviewing.

Book Review: iGifted by Kristi Tailor ( Romantic Holiday Comedy) 5 Stars

Thank you to the author for my Advanced Reader’s Copy. This book is due for release on the 24th November 2020. I’ve never read anything by this author before, I feel lucky to be an advanced reader. I must say, while it was enjoyable it was the ending that really satisfied me! I read this book in just two sittings.

About the Book:

Marley Samuels is determined to live her perfect life. That means accomplishing every goal on her vision board before her 30th birthday− simple goals, like being married by thirty with a blossoming writing career. But when her boyfriend of ten years, Asher Channing humiliates her by refusing to ask the big question and her latest novel flops on Amazon, Marley is left to her own devices. No husband. No big book deal. No Happy Birthday, Marley.However, a trip to visit Santa has her scheming up a plan to overcome her failed attempts at love and happiness. Pushing her pride aside and ignoring her extremely opinionated friends, Marley gives into the whim of 2024s latest technological advances. With android lovers being all the rage, why shouldn’t she take part in the fun, right? What’s the worst that can happen? Marley is about to find out.Note from the Author“Sprinkled with witty and comedic realities that women face during their twenties, thirties and even forties, iGifted is outrageously funny and authentically touching. As we watch Marley deal with betrayal, heartbreak and then the reawakening of herself, it literally brings tears to your eyes.” – Kristi Tailor

5 Unique and Entertaining Stars!

Typically, I don’t touch romantic comedy as a genre, sometimes I have found in an attempt to make the romance ‘funny’, the stories can come across as a bit …well, silly! This has been my past experience. I didn’t find that at all with iGifted. In fact I read the first twenty-thirty pages stood in my kitchen, as I made a cup of tea I opened the book. I found it hard to put it down. I was drawn in straight away.

What’s really interesting about iGifted is that it’s set in a futuristic sense, from 2024. I’m not one for spoilers but this is what was intriguing about it, and a key part to Marley’s story. No spoilers from me, let’s just say that the future feel of this comedy romance fit well, with the overall story-line. It really kept me interested in ‘what happen’s next.’ Also I could place myself in the future, in Marley’s situation, it was really cool as a reading experience.

I really enjoyed the author’s writing style I found it very engaging, active, lots of dialogue to keep my attention. I also found that the pace of the story was good also, it did not drag on. I finished it in just two openings of the book.

I found that all the characters were like-able apart from one, and as the story went on it was clear that this probably was the author’s intention. For her to not be like-able, due to the part she plays in Marley’s sad sudden life changing events. However it was good development as I read, I could understand why the character was how she was. The author did a good job at creating a character that was central to Marley’s story, and not a complete angel either.

The story-line itself is a very touching one, at times I felt sorry for Marley and wanted to hug her, at times I felt like I could shake her and say, ‘girl c’mon f*ck him!’ At times I was sympathetic to how events took a toll on her and her life, I did like Marley. She came across as a hopeless romantic, with a deep need to find her suitable life partner, and at times a complex heroine. I feel like the author told her story in a way that many women could relate to, and even sit back and think ‘what would I do?’ I found myself really hoping for Marley to find her happiness.

When all the drama unfolds, another change of events happen, then Marley’s ex-boyfriend comes back, this is where I was praying so hard that the author didn’t make Marley out to be a woman who can’t stand up for herself. Or even know her worth, and what she truly deserves. The ending for me and the happy ever after, panned out the way I would have encouraged Marley to go if I were really her friend. By the end of the book I felt like I was LOL. I had invested so much in wanting her to be happy. For me as a reader it was the ending that really left me satisfied. It rounded off Marley’s story nicely. I would have loved more on the lead up to the ending, some drama over the choices she made when it came to Asher and Austin, but this is after all a holiday romance comedy! And a very unique one at that. For me as a first time reader of the author’s work, five unique and very entertaining stars. The balance between comedy, entertainment, and futuristic love, and what love in the future could be like really was enjoyable. I recommend that if you love romance, holiday stories, and even comedy romance, stories that are unique and take you away from ‘what’s already done,’ that you head over to Amazon, here and place your pre-order. I must say I look forward to reading more of this author’s work. The 24th November 2020 is the release day.

4 Lovely Stars!

This was such a empowering and enlightening book to read through, I am glad I got a copy. I found that the range of Goddesses covered is very varied, which is good there’s a Goddess energy to help empower every woman, no matter what situation she is facing, or stage of life she’s at. For me this really was the icing on the cake. I was also really proud, and in a way very happy to see that the author had accurately described and written about African Goddesses, from my own culture. Often times when I have read books like this and they are included, ( as they are the two most celebrated Goddesses around the world from the culture), the authors have gotten facts wrong, that could have been cleared up with a bit more research into the African Goddesses. So Kudos to the author!!

I recommend this book to all women around the world, no matter their age, race, background, or situation. There is a Goddess, ritual, meditation, and exercise for you to help move forward and achieve your goals. My only wish is that there was a bit more variety on the actual rituals or exercises themselves, that said there are two Goddess here that seemed to resonate with what I am currently hoping for in life! So of course I will follow up on the author’s recommendations, to see me through. The book is also not written from a ‘religious’ point of view either and I loved this, I loved the fact that the author has not tried to force traditional religion on readers, and it’s appealing to all no matter where you stand with traditional religion. 4 wonderful stars.

Book Review: Behind the Horoscope. 5 Wonderful Stars! (Non-fiction/esoteric) #BehindtheHoroscope #NetGalley

Of course as a qualified astrologer myself, I had to snap up this book. I thank NetGalley for my free review copy. I am so glad I found it, I have bought a paperback. It really is wonderful, whether you are someone well versed in the science of astrology, or have no real knowledge at all.

5 Wonderful and Informative Stars!

Whether you’re well versed in astrology or not, I found this book to be well written for the masses. So even if you don’t have a qualification, or done any formal training it’s written in simple terms that everyone can relate to. The book does cover and focus only on the importance of where a person’s sun and moon are placed, within the houses of life, in their own birth chart. All twelve houses are covered and how this energy can resonate in a person’s life. Keep this in mind, this is not a general book on astrology as there are eight other planets to consider, however the importance of the sun and moon in astrology is significant. So it’s very clear why the author has placed her focus here.

The interpretation is detailed and I liked the fact that the author (who is an experienced astrologer), has based her book on research and her own work as an astrologer, from interpreting a high amount of individual birth charts of real people. This was a major selling point to me, this is not ‘theory’ this book is full of tried and tested interpretations, based on what she found with ‘the masses’ of people she worked with.

What also was really lovely is that I read the information on the placements for my own sun and moon, in my birth chart, my son’s sun and moon. Was it accurate? Yes for me it was and made a lot of sense. The information I read on my son’s chart I had already kind of concluded from studying his chart before myself, but not in as much detail as the author was able to offer. It was a beautiful reading experience! Overall I recommend this book as a book for anyone who has an interest in astrology, there are things to learn and consider here as you practice, when it comes to the importance of the sun and moon in a birth chart. For those who just have an interest in the topic, because of the ease of ability to read the subject matter, and as it’s not over technical or ‘sciencey’ I recommend it. I can’t wait for my copy to arrive, it will sit very proud on my bookshelf. Note that to gain the full benefit of the book, you will need a copy of your own birth chart or the charts of people you wish to understand, to locate areas in the individual charts. But you can always get your birth chart done for free from many online resources, if you don’t pay an astrologer.
