Book Club Review: I Will Make Of Thee A Great Nation

Hey tea friends, hey tea friends, hey! Guess what time it is? Teatime! Today I’m serving you up another book club review. I had the chance to read I Will Make Of Thee A Great Nation by Val D. Greenwood. It’s a collection of over 200 old testament stories. It took me a month and a half to read this book, but I wanted to explore a different genre. I received my highest book club rating to date on this review . Urban fiction is still my favorite, but if you would like to see more non fiction book reviews leave a heart comment please. Check out my full, spoiler free review below and share it on all social media outlets. Thank you!

My Love And His Loyalty: 3 Year Anniversary Post

Hey tea friends, hey tea friends, hey! Guess what time it is? Teatime of course! Today I’m serving you up an anniversary tribute of My Love And His Loyalty: A Hood Fairytale by Nikki Brown. Three years ago on 9/2/16 she released the first of this three-part series. In true Nikki fashion, the storyline is filled with drama, love, and pain. My eyes are still glue to the pages when I read it to this day! This story is about Trina a.k.a Mama and her very unique family. After her husband is killed, she takes over his drug operation and make her kids a part of the team. Stone, Slick, Chaos, and her daughter Baby seem to have it all because of the family business. But problems always follow, mostly for the boys. Maybe because sometimes they only show loyalty to their mom and sister. This is great book to start with if you aren’t familiar with Nikki Brown’s work. She is a bad *ss writer that makes you feel what the characters are going through. As a reader, you really do bond with them . You can get this book here or read my review of the first part of her current series here to get to know her as an author. I hope you check out both and that you enjoyed this tribute .

Review Of Creepin’ Around 3: A VA Love Story (The Finale )

Hey tea friends, hey tea friends, hey! Guess what time it is? Teatime of course!  Which means I’m about to serve you up another hot review. Before I get into it, I want to mention that I noticed you all seemed to prefer shorter book reviews. So, I will try to get my point across in fewer words. Today I will be reviewing Creepin’ Around 3: A VA Love Story by Tabeitha Pollard. I was in my feelings because this is the final part of this series. But this book made my heart race from beginning to end. NO JOKE! Disclaimer: My review may contain a spoiler or two. So now, what you’re going to do is scroll to the bottom of this page, click the links, buy all three books, then read them before you sip this hot tea.

This part starts with Magic in labor with her baby girl. If you recall, as Tiana was watching the news report of Prophet’s death, Magic water broke. But this labor is everything but smooth.  It becomes a near-death experience. What I found funny is Tiana was the most scared of losing Magic after they hated each other. The situation made Magic want to get to the root of her parents’ colorism issues. But after a talk with her mother, more serious issues are revealed. My mouth dropped open and I’m wondering about her mom’s sanity. On another note, when she told sister, Miracle, she joined in disowning them because she and her husband would be adopting a daughter. The little girl looks like them, but her husband’s nervous laughter has me giving him a hard side-eye.

Dreaux is doing all he can to get Tiana back after he was caught cheating with loose box Tai. Tiana, who is pregnant, dealing with his psycho mother and suffering from trust issues, isn’t having it. That’s why Dreaux is bae though. He is driven and will not give up! It’s the same drive that gets him caught up in messy situations. Unfortunately, having a love-struck stalker mother and cousin on the loose doesn’t put him in the best position. But I think he learned his lesson when trying to help one of them is almost fatal.

This brings me to Shayla! She’s the cousin of Dreaux’s birth giver, Seine .and Fabian’s ex-girlfriend. I honestly felt sorry for her because Seine was her downfall. She convinced Shayla that Fabian’s rival, Cascade, was trying to kill her for stealing his money. Shayla steals money from Fabian to pay Seine’s debt, sleeps with Cascade, get pregnant, and disappears for five years. When in fact Seine’s story was a lie. But she allows Seine to get to her again by convincing her to stop hiding and try to get back with Fabian. But the plan to use Chrystianna to get to him fell through. So, she resulted in telling Fabian he was the father of her daughter Harmony. Shayla didn’t count on them embracing Harmony and her making them closer as a family. In true Shayla fashion, she runs giving Harmony to Fabian completely. Her lie also causes the old rival between Fabian and Cascade to return and it starts a major war no one expects.       

What’s Tea?                     

I honestly think this part is the best of the series. It was intense from start to finish and almost flawlessly written. Tabeitha went out of her way to make this final part perfect! The only thing that annoyed me was Chrystianna’s whining. I think her IUD failed and she’s pregnant! But other than her being a baby, I loved it and gave it four out of four stars. This book left too many questions behind. So, I do believe there will be a spinoff or something. If you liked the drama of this series get prepared for some more. I wouldn’t mind a story about Tiana and Dreaux’s co-parenting drama. That would be juicy! In closing, this review is my opinion, buy the book, read it, then form your own.

Review Of Something About The Hood In Her

Hey Friends! Guess what time it is? Tea Time!!! Which means I’m about to serve you up a book review of Something About The Hood In Her by Nikki Brown. Now, this review has two disclaimers. The first one is my review may contain a spoiler or two. The second one is this book is a spinoff of He Brings Out The Hood In Me, and if you haven’t read the series you won’t be able to follow some things in this review. So now, what you going to do is scroll to the bottom of this page, click the links, buy this book and the series before, then read them before you sip this hot tea.

This book starts with not only the shit hitting the fan, but all hell broke loose too! I’m not exaggerating because in the last series we saw how Vincent “Vinny” Delaney likes to keep Camila close. We also learned that he took his mother’s death hard. He feels if he pours his heart out to a woman, she will leave him. So yes, he is a fuckboy, but he loves her and wants her to wait until he gets his shit together. But no woman who knows her worth is going to settle for that. Vinny is young, dumb, and crazy. At the same, Cami knew this when he started fucking with him and ignored her twin brother, Seth also known as Spiff’s, warnings. However, after it is possible Jayla, Cassidy’s ex fuck buddy, is pregnant by Vincent she is now at her breaking point.

I did mention that Vinny is crazy and getting rid of him is easier said than done. That’s why at Spiff and Cami’s club opening he almost shot up the place when she simply danced with another man. Vinny is spiff’s right-hand man working for the Maler family, so he knew how far his temper would go. He had no choice but to have her dance partner escorted out of the club. This. had Camila heated. Seth quickly let her know that she made this bed, and these are the consequence. At that point, she tries to convince Vinny that they need to part ways but he’s not trying to hear that shit.

Porsha, Spiff’s coke addicted, deadbeat baby mama, enters the club on some messy shit. She decided to let Jayla tag along just to piss Cami off. Camila works for the Maler family too, and she’s a bad bitch with a gun. The first time Jayla got slick with her mouth Cami put the heat to her temple. Key, Vinny’s sister, was also hot on Jayla’s ass for always trying to throw the pussy at Cassidy. Porsha smart mouth got the gun turned on her too. The only one that could calm Cami down at that moment was Vincent and she hated it. I hated it too! Fuckboys have too much power already. But Camila knows she was wrong for getting that good D from Vincent then cutting him off. She should have known that’d never work. However, ladies, you know sometimes you need just one last stroke. Haha!

Spiff read my mind when he finally realized Porsha was not at home with their son. I didn’t think anything was wrong with Seth Jr. being at Porsha’s family’s house at first. But when Spiff arrives and they had that poor child on a pile of dirty clothes, no diaper, and left him in pee stained clothes I was done with her family. NO, MA’AM! Then they believe Spiff is their meal ticket and drug hook up. That and Porsha’s self-centered attitude was the end of their relationship. At first, I didn’t like that he took the child from Porsha, but Seth told her to go pick him up. She just refused to. Then it was almost a month before she wanted to see her son. She was too busy looking for her next bag and fucking spiff’s ex-best friend, Bear. Porsha has Bear, jealous ass, stealing products from the Maler family to finance her lifestyle. It’s safe to say they won’t be in this story for long if you know what I mean.

Porsha ways as a mother are the whole reason Seth needed Magic and got to get to know her. He needed a babysitter and Adoree suggested Magic, who is also Icelynn’s friend from the strip club. Now that she’s not working there, she needs the money to finish nursing school. That’s what I like about her, she is proof that not every stripper is a hoe. The girl is actually a virgin! She just wants to make a better life for her and her sister. I like her for spiff she’s a way better role model than Porsha.

Can we take a moment to talk about Adoree, also known as A.D? Now if you read, He Brings Out The Hood In Me series, you already know he’s bae. But his growth really shows in this spin-off. He is dropping wisdom on Spiff and Vinny dumb ass. Adoree’s first son is also born and his overall transition just makes him even sexier!

Okay, I had to get that out of my system before I talk about Skylar shady ass. Cami meets him in the mall while beating Porsha down for how her family left S.J. Cami don’t play! The funny part is Jayla was there and didn’t even help her. A gun to the temple taught her well. But anyway, before he even gets a date with Cami, he is doing suspect activities. He fucked with Jayla, brought Bear’s stolen drugs, and lied to Cami about having a kid.  He doesn’t fear the Maler crew either, so they could have an enemy on their hands.

After being hardheaded this whole book, Vinny finally comes to his senses. He even ignored Siya’s, mama Maler, advice. THAT’S A NO NO VINCENT! I am glad he came to his senses, but it may be too late. Vinny being his normal irrational self, came into Cami’s space at the wrong time. She was not only on a date with Skylar but just at her breaking point with Vincent’s antics. So, when he decided to kick Skylar’s ass while in the middle of pouring his heart out to her, Cami took it as another game he was playing. She pulled out her gun and turned it on him to his surprise and mines. Of course, she didn’t shoot him, but he felt betrayed vowing to leave her alone for good. This is a lie and he knows it! But we’ll have to wait for part two to see what comes next

So, What’s Tea?

Nikki Brown is a badass writer! I mean that with every ounce of love. This book hit me straight in the heart. I felt every emotion along with the characters. It did take me a minute to get into the story because I couldn’t rock with a mom being kept from her child. But as things built up, I became team Spiff. It was nice to see the Maler gang back with a BANG! Especially, Khalil’s crazy antics. Whenever all the characters are together cracking jokes, I’m laughing along with them. It was nice to get little updates on the old crew. I was a little disappointed Piper wasn’t in this one, but where would he fit now? She’s just that character I love to hate. In the next part, I hope to see Spiff taking legal action to get his son. He has all the Maler’s support to do so. A little more on Cassidy and Key would be nice too. Overall, I give the book five out of five teacups because it is just too juicy. I didn’t think the last series could be topped but part one of the spinoff blew me away! This is my opinion buy the books, read them, and form your own.
