Kennedee Devoe - Two Wrongs Don't Make A Right...It Makes Us Even - Available Now! - 3.5 out of 5 books - -
Two Wrongs Don't Make a Right...It Makes Us Even by Kennedee Devoe is about the author's life. Kennedee Devoe shares her ups and downs and the men that have came and gone out of her life. Her first experience with heartbreak occurred at a young age when her boyfriend showed up at her house with his new girlfriend on his arm. Kennedee stood there hurt but refused to show the hurt. The boyfriend would later get a taste of Kennedee's revenge.
As Kennedee gets older, she experiences some highs and quite a few lows with men. Kennedee has dated the insensitive asshole, the man that could not keep his hands to himself, etc. But Kennedee is not the type of girl to sit back and take any crap from any man. Kennedee has had family members handle some situations, and she has gotten creative in the ways she handled them. As Kennedee gets older, she realizes that it's better to let karma handle the situation instead of taking it upon herself to dole the revenge out.
Two Wrong's Don't Make a Right...It Makes Us Even by Kennedee Devoe was definitely an entertaining read. I commend Ms. Devoe for taking her life stories and sharing them in written form. I mainly commend her for sharing certain things in her life that can be considered controversial and putting certain things between the pages for everyone to know. The overall story was very good. My only complaint are the gaps within the story. There are a few things I would have liked to read more about. Overall, Two Wrong's Don't Make a Right...It Makes Us Even was a good, quick read. I hope Ms. Devoe continues writing, and I look forward to reading more by her.
Sister Souljah - A Deeper Love Inside: The Porsche Santiaga Story - Available Now! - 5 out of 5 books -
Porsche Santiaga had spent the first eight
years of her life looking up to her older sister Winter. But when her dad is sent
to prison, Porsche is forced to grow up in the harsh juvenile justice system
that Winter knew nothing about. Through this growing process, Porsche is
determined to become a strong woman. Will Porsche be the queen that she is
destined to be, or will she be just another statistic?
Sister Souljah finally gives us a true sequel
to The Coldest Winter Ever with A Deeper Love Inside. In the prior book,
Porsche blended into the background and you didn’t get her whole story. With
this novel, Porsche is telling you everything in her own voice so that you see
everything through her eyes. Sister Souljah does an excellent job of showing
the harsh realities of Porsche growing up in the juvenile justice system.
Readers will find that Porsche has a totally different mindset than her older
sister at an early age. She was not only concerned about surviving but also to
become a better and stronger person. It was refreshing to see the growth in
Porsche from the beginning to the end of the book. This story also has some
great secondary characters that help Porsche along her journey including a
young man named Elisha. Midnight and Winter do make appearances in this novel
but this story is not about them. Sister Souljah also connects this story with
the end of The Coldest Winter Ever so readers will not feel cheated. By the end
of the book, you get a sound and satisfying conclusion with all of your
questions answered about Porsche. You
actually see the mature young woman that she becomes. A Deeper Love Inside: The Porsche Santiaga Story is a thought
provoking coming-of-age story that was definitely worth the wait.
