Diva Diaries by Janine A. Morris

Janine A. Morris bursts onto the fiction scene with a page-turning novel featuring three smart, sexy African American divas: Dakota, Chrasey, and Jordan. Best friends since college, these thirty-something native New Yorkers have seen it all—or so they think. Because as they’re discovering, their wild school days have nothing on the dramas of adulthood… Do the thrills of youth have to end after a certain age? With her thirty-first birthday around the corner, Dakota doesn’t think so. She’s a successful marketing executive who still believes in sex, drugs, and rock and roll. Tyreek, her on-and-off man, is successful in his own right, making his money in the music industry. The idea of settling down has come up once or twice between them, but Dakota isn’t sure Tyreek is quite ready for that—although she’s beginning to think that she finally is. The challenge will be getting her lifestyle to line up with her dreams…

Chrasey has been happily married to Keith for nine years. They have two children and a house in Queens, but lately Chrasey senses problems. Keith’s not himself, and she’s feeling neglected. Chrasey is a firm believer in upholding her wedding vows, but after months of temptation from a handsome younger man, she finds herself becoming something she never thought she’d be: married and unfaithful. As much as Chrasey wants her old life back, some messes are easier to get into than out of... Jordan, the most sensible of the trio, has adopted the mother role, although even good girls have their demons. Jordan lives with her husband and son on Long Island and has worked hard for her success as a lawyer. But with a husband who didn’t sign up for glitz and glamour, Jordan has to walk a fine line to balance her personal and professional lives…a line that’s blurred when she begins spending too much time with a male colleague. Ultimately, Jordan must decide what her priorities are—but the wrong choice could cost more than she wants to pay. From the sweet to the bittersweet, life’s dramas will play out one way or another. And one way or another, the secrets these women share will strengthen the bonds of sisterhood that help them survive it all…

Doesn't that sound like a hot book to read this summer? You could be the lucky winner.

Right now I'm reading "Baby Brother's Blues" by Pearl Cleage, an amazing author who writes rich, earthy stories set right here in my hometown, Atlanta, GA.

I just finished reading A Sin and A Shame by Victoria Christopher Murray and that was a great book! I'm now reading Other Men's Wives by Freddie Lee Johnson III, and can't wait to finish it. Juicy and drama filled! Both books get 4/4.5 stars from me.

I have been reading like crazy trying to trim down my to-be-read pile. I read Sharon Cullar's Again and loved it. And I also read Joy King's Dirty Little Secrets and Mia Edwards' Ghetto Princess. Both were nice. I'd been saving L.A. Banks' The Damned as a treat for when I finish my writing deadlines and what a treat it was. All I can say is, WOW. And I'm glad I waited to read it because now I don't have too long to wait for the next installment in July. For readers looking for a sensuous and emotional love story, check out my July release, If Only You Knew. It's one of the Kimani Romance launch books.
