Allure of the Game by Danielle Santiago

Title: Allure of the Game

Author: Danielle Santiago

Rating: 4

Headline: Oh my!!!

This book is centered on Arnessa who is doing whatever is needed so she can provide for her and her younger sister. When she gets in over her head, Butta steps into her life and a romance blossoms. Besides love, Butta introduces Arnessa to some new girlfriends: Kennedy, Kisa, and Eisani. These girls definitely know how to hold it down for their men.

‘Allure of the Game’ is the first piece of work that I have read by Danielle Santiago and after reading this book I was left scratching my head wondering why I haven’t read her work before now. Her style is so raw and real that I did not want to do anything else but read this book. Now, I must go back and read Ms. Santiago’s previous works. I would recommend this book to others.


All About Eva by Deidre Berry

Title: All About Eva

Author: Deidre Berry

Rating: 4

Headline: Get Back Up!

Eva Cantrell is a fashionista and socialite because of her well-to-do Wall Street boyfriend, Donovan. She has grown accustomed to the very best material things that life has to offer until one day her life is turned upside down. Donovan turns out to be a thief, goes on the run, and leaves Eva on the other side of the world without a penny to her name or an airplane ticket back to America.

Deidre Berry pens a story of a fall and an eventual rise back to the top. Us as the reader may not connect with the high society lifestyle but at one point or another we have been knocked down in life and had to pick ourselves back up. Because of this, I could not help but cheer for Eva as she has to learn how to depend on herself and make many different choices to put her life back together.

‘All About Eva’ is a quick, fun read that held my interest from beginning to end. While it is a piece of fiction we can all learn a lesson to apply in our lives about how to be self-sufficient and how to get back up once everyone has turned their back on you. I would recommend this book to others.
