What’s up yall? Hope everybody is doing well, living well, drinking water and all that…
But back to what’s important. This review tho.
Today’s book is By Any Means: Going Against The Grain by TN Jones
I’ll try to keep it brief, because there’s never a dull moment in the book.
The book starts off with main character Michelle Brockton. Exceptional single mother, in school, has a wonderful job, a beautiful 6 year old daughter, and a loving best friend who is always there for her when she needs her. She also has a brother, Mitchell, who has been exiled from the family for wanting to be with a white woman….I guess that put shame on the family name.
Things take a terrible turn when Michelle ends up losing her job due to scandal and crime, and it causes her parents to turn their backs on her. Needing a way to pay for everyday living, as well as school, she decides to turn to her best friend for help, and to see if she can work with her.
(Her best friend Sayvton is a hostess for BDSM gatherings, which is something Michelle turned her nose up at towards the beginning of the book.)
Moving on to Jeffrey Lawrence, the son of the Governor, and business owner. He wants Michelle badly, and the feeling appears to be mutual even though neither one of them says a word to each other. Seriously, Jeffrey will sit at the park on Michelle’s lunch break to just stare and admire her. In reality, that’s creepy as hell, but TN writes it in a way that it’s romantic.
He’s stuck in a loveless marriage, being practically forced into a relationship with his wife Jolene, who isn’t his cup of tea at all….as he prefers sistas 🙂
But like Michelle’s family, the good Governor doesn’t want his name ruined, so Jolene will have to do…until Jeffrey decides he doesn’t care anymore and wants to live his truth and be with the one lady he truly wants.
First off, let me just say….this is what 50 Shades WISH it was. I don’t think I’ve read anything like this, and I mean that in a good way. I tip my hat (or…my wig, because chile I don’t even wear hats) off to Ms. TN Jones because this book was AMAZINGGG!! I can see this book being turned into a movie for real….it could even be a show!
I felt like I was super involved…it’s a lot of realistic things happening in this book, and it sheds light on the dirty dealings of how some of these people operate when they are in a position of power.
The ending had me jumping up and down because whoever is plotting on Jeffrey did it with such finesse…..and she cut it off in a way that has me really itching to see what the hell is going to happen to EVERYBODY, because everybody got some type of drama going on in the book.
There was a tiny scene in the book that made me laugh (I’m sure it wasn’t meant to be funny) when Jeffrey goes in on Jolene and talks about her pale vagina. I hollered!
PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE GO DOWNLOAD THIS BOOK! I swear, you won’t regret it! And when you done, go find you a white man….cuz they in right now.
