Book Review: Freddie Entangled by Kiru Taye

Book Title: Freddie Entangled
Author: Kiru Taye
Format: eBook
Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

After reading Freddie EntangledI know that I will be reading the next one in the series, which is entitled Freddie Untangled.  Having only read the first book in the Essien Trilogy, Keeping Secrets, I definitely have to read the other four books before this one. Even though I have not read books 2-5, I was able to follow the plot.  

In this book, Kike, a famous actress, who is often referred to as the Ice Queen, is married to Lekan, the pastor of a mega church.  After an incident that involved someone trying to take her son, Yomi, she decides that a bodyguard is necessary for her and her son. 

Kike contacts the security firm, where Freddie works. Eventually, Freddie is hired to be Kike's personal bodyguard. His partner, Benson, watches the children.  The immediate attraction between Kike and Freddie is intriguing, overpowering, and surprising to me. 

Interestingly enough, the development of the plot to include sub and dom references shocked me. Why I don’t know? I guess I just wasn’t expecting that in this text.  The complexity of Kike and Freddie's interactions, as well as the relationship of Kike and Lekan, draws you into the plot, but also, leaves you feeling somewhat confused.  Both these feelings make you want to continue until the end.   

Being unfamiliar with the sub and dom world, I do not understand everything that Taye was trying to portray, but the psychology student in me couldn't help but notice the psychological and emotional abuse that Lekan was doing to Kike. Lekan has been taken advantage of Like since her youth.  

In my opinion, I finished this book in record time. However, I was so disappointed when I made it to the ending.  I wanted to know what was going to happen between Freddie and Kike, as well has what Lekan “had up his sleeve.”As I wait for Freddie Untangled to debut in May, I know I will be reading the books by Kiru Taye in this series to catch up.

First Book Review of 2017: The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck

Book Title: The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck Author: Mark Manson Format: Audiobook Rating: 5 out of 5 stars
Purchase Book
Reading in 2017 is all about "getting my life together." Since I am turning 35 this year, I am focused on being the "best me" that I can be. Therefore, when I chose The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck, I knew that I was starting my year off just right. 
I started the audiobook on January 3rd, during my morning commute to work. I'm guilty of not reading the synopsis of a book that I have chosen, so I wasn't quite sure what to expect. Matter of Fact, I think I heard about the book when I was listening to a podcast by Myleik Teele. Her podcasts give me life, and I love that she is an avid reader, who is dedicated to personal development. So, when she recommends a book to read, I take note.  After reading 48 Laws of Power because of Myleik's recommendation and enjoying it, I have started making a list of books that she suggests to her lis…

Book Review: I'm Judging You: The Do-Better Manual by Luvvie Ajayi

Book Title:I'm Judging You: The Do-Better Manual
Author: Luvvie Ajayi
Format: Paperback
Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

Ajayi is widely known throughout social media as Awesomely Luvvie because of her blog, which is where I first became introduced to her.  Luvvie was blogging before blogging was a "thing" and has contributed to presenting incredible commentary on one of my favorite shows, Scandal.  So, when I heard that she had a new book, I wanted to get it ASAP.  When my ARC copy arrived, it was a very sacred moment.  I did not want to ruin the pages or crinkle the cover. What would Ajayi think of me if I did not handle her book with care? I decided to wait until I could focus on reading the book.

Riding on the passenger side during a trip to visit my in-laws, I decided to devour the book.  Reading the first page of I'm Judging You, I knew that I would not be disappointed.  Ajayi makes you laugh out loud.  My husband kept giving me major "side-eye" as I kept bursting…
