Born only months apart, Merci and Grayce Alexander were as close as sisters could get. With a father who thought the world of them, life was good. Until one day everything changed.

She never looks back, putting the past behind her until … her sister shows up over a decade later begging for help, bringing all of the forgotten past with her.

Book Review: The University Cat by Jessika Jenvieve

The University Cat QTitle: The University Cat: A Tale for Grown Ups and Graduates
Author: Jessika Jenvieve
Genre: Urban Fiction
Age Group: Adult
Rating: 4 stars
Purchase: Amazon
Review copy provided by Enchanted Book Promotions in exchange for an honest review.

Gargoyles are said to frighten off harmful spirits and protect the buildings that they guard. They are evil creations and those approaching the University’s Gothic buildings at night are advised to use caution. If you think that a Gargoyle is simply made of stone, you are terribly mistaken.

Penny, a super intelligent, well-educated Siamese cat moves into Professor Eagle’s office and sinks her claws into the exquisite calfskin binding of his books. The Gargoyles have her firmly fixed in their sights. There are terrifying times to come in the University Museum and a wicked plot to prevent Professor Poppett and Poodle from winning the Dog Show. If you thought it was safe to go to university, you might need to think again.

The University Cat: A Tale for Grownups and Graduates definitely wasn’t what I had expected. The story has a definite magical, whimsical feel about it. Penny is a super intelligent, well-educated Siamese cat who has moved into Professor Eagle’s office, and immediately becomes targeted by the gargoyles. Terrifying times lie ahead in the University Museum, and Penny is square in the middle of it.

I liked how the book focused a lot on Penny. It’s not every day you encounter a main character who is a cat. Another one of the characters, Poodle, is an animal too (a dog, as you might have guessed). Yet despite having animals as protagonists, the author does a remarkable job of portraying the animals as having actual personality traits.

The writing wasn’t too complex, and it was a pretty straightforward, but fun read.

flatTitle: Love and Happiness

Author: Ben Burgess Jr.

Genre: African-American romance

Karen has it all: a handsome husband, beautiful twin daughters, a lovely home and a great job. Karen also has a secret; she’s cheating on her husband, with not one man, but two.

On the outside her life seems perfect, but on the inside Karen feels neglected, bored and unappreciated. Yearning for affection and excitement, she falls into the arms of first Raheem and then Tyrell. Out of fear of losing her husband and breaking up her family, Karen ends the affairs but things don’t turn out how she planned. When Karen’s dirty secrets are revealed she must fight to keep her family together.

Chris is doing all he can to hold his marriage together. He loves Karen but she grows more distant every day. When she starts coming home later and later, he suspects she is being unfaithful. When Chris accidentally takes her cell phone what he finds changes their lives forever.

When tragedy strikes, Karen must decide if she should sacrifice her happiness for her husband’s love, and Chris wonders if he should stay with Karen because he still loves her despite her infidelity. But if they do stay together, will they ever find love and happiness again?

Sexy and relatable, insightful and inspiring, Love and Happiness shows us both sides of Chris and Karen’s story, and reminds us that sometimes to have it all, you must first lose it all.
