No More Playas
NO MORE PLAYAS

Author:Brenda Jackson

Psychologist Lance Montgomery, playa extraordinaire, literally wrote the handbook for playas. All was well in his world until he fell in love with his colleague Dr. Asia Fowler. Unfortunately, Lance didn't realize how deep his feelings for Asia ran until after she caught him in a compromising position. When he discovers the love of his life is engaged to marry someone else, Lance vows this wedding will not take place. He sets out to prove to Asia that he is reformed and truly in love with her.
Every time Lance Montgomery appears, Asia's life goes haywire. Though she knew his claim to fame was his status as the top playa, she couldn't help falling for him. But when she saw him in action with another woman, reality slapped her across the face. The next day she got engaged to a good man and intends on marrying him. At least she intended on marrying him until Lance reappears, declaring his love for her. Afraid to trust Lance, she has some tough decisions to make.
Carrie Montgomery grew up in a separate household than her brothers. While their household was loving, hers was filled with abuse. Now a blackmailer is threatening to post sexually explicit photos on the Internet of her being molested, unless she coughs up a hundred grand. She hires private investigator Connor Hargrove to find the blackmailer and her estranged mother. Though leery of men, she finds herself attracted to Connor. Afraid of these new feelings yet needing to find answers, she confides in Connor.
Connor Hargrove, die-hard bachelor, can't believe he's thinking about turning in his playa card for Carrie. Yes she's beautiful, but there is something special about her. Something he's never felt for a woman. The more she opens emotionally for him, the more he wants her. Scars from her childhood have formed a protective shield around Carrie that he finds himself wanting to penetrate.
NO MORE PLAYAS, the sequel to The Playa's Handbook, was a mess (in a good way) from page one until the final page. Ms. Jackson did a marvelous job at bringing the characters to life and penning not one, but two intriguing romantic stories in this novel. I found NO MORE PLAYAS to be a fast paced, enjoyable read, and I hope Ms. Jackson writes novels for the remaining Montgomery siblings in the future.

Breaking the Cycle
BREAKING THE CYCLE

Author:Zane

Breaking the Cycle is an anthology that introduces some and reminds others of the darker side of life; domestic abuse.
In this anthology there are eight stories that give a different spin on the subject of abuse. In the title story, penned by Zane, a young girl persuades her mother to leave an abusive man but things don't go as planned; J.L Woodson's "God Answers Prayer" deals with a young boy fighting for his life in the hospital after being placed there by a parent, and the recognition of abused men by Shonda Cheekes in "Silent Suffering" was a much needed perspective. However,out of the eight,there were three stories that had a greater impact on this reader. "The Grindstone" by Nane Quartay, in which a young boy witnesses a particularly gruesome murder and has no idea of how it will affect his life, "The Break of Dawn" by Collen Dixon which has an unforeseen twist that gave this reader pause and "The Stranger" by Tracy Thompson-Price who gives us a total new look at a victim's breaking point. These three stories were written in such a way they were very compelling.
Zane has done an outstanding job choosing these powerful stories to show this subject matter from different perspectives. Some stories were tame in descriptions but heavy on internal struggle of the victims and others were written so vividly that you could feel the blows of the abuse. Also the inclusion of domestic abuse resources in all fifty states gives a person an idea of where to start if they could in any way relate to these stories.
