Book Review:

A FEW MAYBE A LOT OF SPOILERS !!!!

Love Burn had me sad, emotional, mad, happy All at the same time I was fussing and everything lol, especially with Noni because she kept going back to Dom. Like girl, please stop I was making mad faces, saying, girl, If you don’t get with Mercy, and finally he hit it, but it was ruin with Tate stank *** glad the ending came out good because she ended up with Mercy even though she lost another baby again. I felt like she lost that baby due to “stress, drinking, taking them bottles of pills, crying,” bad enough she tried killing herself twice. And then was pregnant during the second accident, the second accident had me weak though because she drove the car into his house and tried running over him I’m like girl she made me mad though throughout the whole thing because she was pregnant but was whiny when she lost the baby towards the end. But through this entire book, Noni best friend Tate and own husband Dom were shady asl. When he got home and seen she left I was dying laughing. Also, I wish this book didn’t go from present to the past and the past to present ugh. Should’ve done past first and then present. But the book was still good, glad it stopped with the past BS. Dom was piss when he found out about Mercy and Noni; I’m like KARMA’S a ***** isn’t it? I was like Mercy should’ve cuff his lady because he (Dom) kept own calling Mercy to fix his relationship (with Noni) so, what did he expect to happen?. Plus Mercy was feeling Noni anyway. I am against cheating but look I was like boy if you don’t go and get her, I was even angry when she found she was HIV positive. And she didn’t want to be with him, and he still wanted to be with her, I was hot lol, I am like girl if you don’t get your stupid self-own somewhere, man he wanted to be with her regardless of her being HIV positive but in the end she wasn’t’ positive but negative. I did wonder if Tate did something to her test to make it positive. Because Dom was negative, and I was like how’d he be negative when she was positive, and Tate *** got that KARMA back good lmao. In the end, she still didn’t get Dom but got killed, Oh WELL > Oh, by the way, (this book Love Burn is part 1-4, I was confused at the beginning of it.

Book Description:Β 

When Noni married the love of her life, she finally thought she would get everything she deserved. Riches, success, status, influence – she had it all as the wife of Mr. Dominick Meyer. But there is more to her title than meets the eye.

When she catches Dom cheating and discovers that he isn’t the businessman he portrayed himself to be, her life is changed forever. Finding out that their wealth was amassed from drug money and that Dom has never truly been faithful, she wants out. With a messy divorce pending, Noni empties her husband’s bank accounts and goes on the lam in an attempt to run away from her daunting reality. She never expected to find a new love along the way. But when Dom comes knocking and a debt has to be paid, her world spirals out of control.

Join Ashley Antoinette as she pens an explosive short story series that takes you through love, loss, truth, lies, drugs, money, and death. Love has a way of leaving you burned in the end, and Noni only hopes she can escape its clutches unscathed.

Book Review:

JUST A FEW SPOILERS HERE AND THERE!!

I had no doubts about this book I knew it was going to be good, once I started reading, and I had high hopes for Swan, Shai, and Gater, and bruh I thought Gater got killed like tf. Dude, I’m like all three of them, would’ve been some beast in the streets. But then I’m like, the kid sound familiar thou from the other books I have read with the Clark’s in them. But that part is so familiar to me like I read it somewhere with him and that scene! He had to survived that shoot out, but how is the question, so I go back to the Animal (Book1), and like Gator did die. Blah. 

Also, I finally got to read how Shai dad died, and what happened with his brother Tommy, who I thought was a straight idiot, he definitely messed up his father business and got half of everybody killed including his father. And man when I read that part that was some sad **** I got a little teary eyed reading it especially when Tommy saw his father laid out in the streets, and when Shai pulled up and seen his dad, like dang.

Also, I know people are going to be like REALLY and some other stuff, but listen lol, NO lie to you, I swear I thought Shai and his family was Italian from reading the other books that they are in lmao. SMH! Just because of the “spaghetti eating comments.

Lastly, I don’t hate Shai as much as I did at first since I read his story. Also, I felt like if nothing happened to his father or Tommy. I think he wouldn’t have gotten into the drug business, it’s funny how no one looks at Shai and being the one to watch. Like um, I knew he was going to lethal, a problem, dude, is actually street smart, and book smart, he think things through before acting unlike his brother.

He set out to be the good son, but the streets had a different plan.

Born to one of the city’s most notorious crime families, Shai Clark has always managed to be a good kid.

Tommy, Shai’s trigger-happy older brother, is next in line for the throne and rules under his father through brute force. But Poppa has bigger plans for Shai.
The situation soon turns ugly when Poppa is murdered and Tommy is removed from the equation. Suddenly Shai finds himself at the head of his father’s empire and the streets are thrown into chaos. It is then that he must decide whether to pursue his own dreams or put his father’s affairs in order. Unable to sit idly by while the Clarks’ underworld empire is pillaged, Shai takes up his father’s mantle and brings his game to the streets. He quickly learns that there are two sides to every coin, and the streets hold no mercy for the weak.

Book Description:Β 

From the moment Animal’s former lover Red Sonja showed up on his doorstep, he knew trouble wouldn’t be far behind. It wasn’t because the last time he’d seen her, he had been fleeing for his life from a strange island. Nor was it because of the little girl she had in tow, claiming Animal was the father. It was because women like Red Sonja carried trouble around with them like designer purses. He knew getting involved with Sonja again would come at a price, but he had no idea how steep the price would be until it was too late. With his wife gone and his children abducted by a ruthless drug cartel, Animal must lead a suicide mission into the lair of one of the most dangerous assassins in the world, a woman who calls herself Tiger Lily. To go against Tiger Lily and the cartel, Animal would need an army, so the call to arms is put out and the streets readily answer. Leading a handful of loyal souls against seemingly insurmountable odds, Animal races against the clock to save his children and put a stop to Tiger Lily and the cartel’s plans, while trying to stay one step ahead of the two detectives following the trail of bodies. Things take an unexpected turn when Animal learns a dark truth hidden beneath what he had been led to believe that changes everything, including who can be trusted.

Brianna and Shan couldn’t be more different. From her $1,200 weave to her closet full of Gucci, Prada, and Chanel, Brianna believes that men were born to bankroll her lifestyle. Shan likes to make her own money by working for a living at a men’s prison – and prefers Sean John, Baby Phat, and Fubu to Jimmy Choo. Still, despite appearances, Shan and B are sisters where it counts – or so they think….
For B, lying is part of the hustle, and the hustle is what gets her sex, clothes, cars – pretty much whatever she wants. She couldn’t care less who gets hurt along the way, as long as it isn’t her. But it’s one thing to hustle tricks and quite another to betray the one person who really cares. When one of B’s schemes goes too far, blood is spilled – and Shan is caught in the crossfire. Now, with friendship and lives on the line, Brianna’s got one last chance to change her ways – or suffer the consequences….
