Book with a View

Book with a View is a regular monthly column in Writers in the Sky Newsletter

This month's reviews are supplied by Reader Views and my dear friend Irene Watson.

February is referred to as the Month of Love, and as most of us know, Valentine’s Day is on the 14th. Flowers and candy are a given, but, how about a book that spells romance? This month we have chosen three books for you to check out. We even give you an opportunity to meet the authors through interviews. Happy Reading!

This month Reader Views is suggesting:

Dating Rocks! The 21 Smartest Moves Women Make for Love
Steve Nakamoto
Java Books (2006)
ISBN 0967089344
Reviewed by Kelley Anderson for Reader Views (1/06)

“Dating Rocks” is a sensible, insightful view into the mind of a man and what he wants out of a relationship. It is appropriate for any female wanting a mature, adult relationship with a man and gives her specific and detailed guidance on how to achieve it. Nakamoto writes in easy to understand language, using the same format for each chapter that makes the information easily accessible. The chapters are broken down into simple steps, making the information manageable. He provides the reader with challenges for each step and thoughtful advice about looks, charm, honesty, loyalty and love.

Forever Sentimental Vol. III: Agape Love
iUniverse (2006)
ISBN 0595396933
Reviewed by Paige Lovitt for Reader Views (10/06)

If I could give “Forever Sentimental” ten stars, I would. I am reading it at a time in my life that I really need it. I think that each person that reads it will feel the same way. For me, the book further confirmed that my relationship is not as it should be. Kenyatta realistically tells you what love should be like and what you should be able to expect. I don’t feel that he is suggesting that we expect too much. He just made me realize that I am not getting enough of what I need for a healthy two way relationship.

Torn Between Two Lovers
Carol Ann Culbert Johnson
Lulu (2006)
ISBN 9781430300823
Reviewed by Beverly Pechin for Reader Views (11/06)

“Torn Between Two Lovers” is a moving story of three black women who share their lives and passions with each other, no matter what the outcome. As the author gives us an inside look at each of the women in the story, we begin to realize the ups and downs of relationships no matter who is involved. The plot is touched with a hint of reality that keeps the story down to earth and realistic, the author combines just enough romantic desire and passion to bring the characters into full light. Women who fit all shapes and sizes meet men of all categories, some to find love and some to find pain.
