This book was a great find from the beginning. I found the writing to be both exciting and eventful. From one page to the next I was involved completely in the storyline. Dr. Amanda “Bell” Brown–psychologist –is very intelligent and a strong willed black woman who is both a Christian and red blooded American woman with desires and needs. Bell is introduced to “The perfect man”, of all places at a crime scene–she and detective “Jazz” are immediately attracted to each other. Throughout the story they are fighting their own demons and the attraction between them.
This story is both enticing and informative. I would recommend this read to anyone who enjoys a good book. Book 2 also sounds inviting, Can’t wait to read it and see what else Bell and Jazz can get into.

This book was hard to follow at first, until I figured out the style of the writer–Jill A. Davis.

I found it enlightening and to be a carbon copy of so many peoples lives. Emily–the character, had to learn as a small child to live without her father, whom she thought had walked out of her life. Upon the diagnosis of her mother’s breast cancer her father re-entered her life and was a mirror image of herself. Emily had to deal with the fear of also losing her mother, and in the end just when she began to build a relationship with her father and began to understand her mother’s awkwardness tragedy strikes!! That is it now you have to read this book to find out what happens….

I would recommend this book to women who have felt alone at some point in their life, and to anyone who has lost a parent or loved one. Very good book, I give it 4 stars.

This book is delicious!! I truly enjoyed reading this book, it is nice to see love from a mans point of view and Michael is excellent with his words.

While reading this book I was totally absorbed in it. It is a little x-rated, but leaves you wanting more!!

There are lots of people who play on Myspace, including myself, I truly believe this story has actually happened, and can happen to people within Myspace pages.

I would highly recommend this book to anyone who likes to read. I am not a big fan of romance books, but this book is a wonderful read that will leave you wanting more.

Humanity’s Edge

Humanity’s Edge
by Tamara Wilhite
Reviewed by Marsha Sellers for Quality Book Reviews

Humanity’s Edge was a little weird for me, a very different type of story. My thoughts and feelings about this book.

The author Tamara Wilhite is definately able to express herself and make you look at things in her own perspective. She is well spoken and appears to truly believe what she is writing.

This book consists of several short stories, mainly portraying people’s existance on other planets or their survival dealing with the after effects of some horrible event–such as the resulting effects of human technology experimenting with eartquakes, which caused tidal waves of death all over the continent due to gas emissions, or human cloning on other planets. One of her stories – Cathedral- is about genetics and experimental drugs.

I found it very hard to concentrate while reading this book, it is “out there”. I just couldn’t stay focused at all with this one. Me, personally I would not recommend it for anyone other than someone who is really into this type of thing. This author I feel is writing for educated and scientific people, not ordinary everyday people like me.
