Book Review: If Only He Loved Me by KS Oliver

Jordyn is trying to convince everyone around her, that she’s in a perfect relationship with the love of her life Giorgio. Problem is…he doesn’t know about it.

When crazy things begin to happen, the common denominator is Jordyn. So, when her story begins to unravel around her, all hell breaks loose.

I enjoyed this 💎💎💎💎 book by @authoressks, but found it a little predictable. Jordyn was the perfect example of a woman scorned.

A gate slams shut, sending a jolt of reality through seventeen-year-old Jayson Jackson’s entire body. As an officer pats him down, Jayson secretly hopes that tomorrow, when he turns eighteen, his life will finally be his own. But he knows it will not be easy. Two years ago, he accidentally shot his best friend. Once again, Jayson is the victim of stolen opportunities.

Now left helpless as he awaits a judge’s decision to either let him walk free or give him a sentence that could land him in a correctional facility for a long time. Jayson reflects on the friendship he once shared with Michael-Stephens all-star athlete, high school scholar and aspiring singer. On the surface, Michael, also known as Mr. Basketball, appeared to have it all. But no one but Jayson knew that he and Michael shared a powerful kinship created through similar childhood tragedies. Now with the help of his grandmother and his uncle Scott, Jayson must learn to reconcile his past in order to move forward with his future.

Set against the sometimes-gritty backdrop of Detroit, this poignant saga reveals an unforgettable message of forgiveness, responsibility and second chances as a young man struggles to regain his life after a horrible mistake.

Book of the Day: Stand Your Ground by Victoria Christopher Murray

Another perfect read for race relations in this country, by @victoriachristophermurray.

Winner of the NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Literary Work—Fiction

From the #1 Essence bestselling and award-winning author Victoria Christopher Murray comes Stand Your Ground, a new novel about two women who are faced with the same tragedy.

A black teenage boy is dead. A white man shot him. Was he standing his ground or was it murder?

Janice Johnson is living every black mother’s nightmare. Her seventeen-year-old son was murdered and the shooter has not been arrested. Can the D.A. and the police be trusted to investigate and do the right thing? Should Janice take advantage of the public outcry and join her husband alongside the angry protestors who are out for revenge?

Meredith Spencer is married to the man accused of the killing and she sees her husband and the situation with far more clarity than anyone realizes. What she knows could blow the case wide open, but what will that mean for her life and that of her son? Will she have the courage to come forward in time so that justice can be done?

1 national bestselling and award-winning author Victoria Christopher Murray’s Stand Your Ground is a pulse-pounding meditation on race, motherhood, marriage, and vigilante justice that will have readers spellbound until its shocking end.
