By Any Means:Going Against The Grain

Today’s book is By Any Means: Going Against The Grain by TN Jones

51EhfKCcoVL._SY346_

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.

But anyways…

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.

Freetress Kitron Wig Review!

Freetress

 

Hi Dolls!

Yesterday, I wrote about a serious topic…So I wanted to lighten the mood a little with a quick wig review! I’m natural, and I recently just big chopped again, so wigs have been my go to when I don’t feel like waiting for my wash and go’s to dry. I love wigs so much, as I can change up my color, cut, and style, all without messing with MY actual hair.

I’ve had this wig for a while…I haven’t worn it yet either. It’s super hot in Texas right now and this is a lot of hair. Scratch that, a TON of hair. It’s going to be a wig for you if you want to feel like BeyoncĂ©..Diana Ross…Chaka Khan…somebody! She (yes, she) is made by Freetress, and her name is Kitron. I got her online from Sistawigs.com a few months ago for 26.99! So she is super affordable. (I’m not being sponsored…I’m broke ya’ll.)
I do, however, recommend that you order her from another site if you decide to try her out. My experience with Sistawigs was frustrating as hell, but that’s another blog for another day honey.

But back to the review.

She’s has an invisible deep L shaped part, and it’s very natural looking (Granted that you add some concealer so it matches your scalp…don’t play yourself and skip this step). I did have to tweeze a few hairs out, and she comes with a few baby hairs (the website called them bangs, but they are not that full for me to be calling them wisps of hair bangs) for all you baby hair lovers out there. (I see you, boo!)
There’s lace around the hairline, with 2 front and 2 back combs, and an adjustable strap. She is also curling iron safe up to 400 degrees. I got her in the color OH227144, and she is gorgeous! I absolutely love her. She’s super soft, and feels light on my head. I don’t even feel like I’m wearing a wig when I put her on. Just feels like silk, and I never want to take her off! (But you have to Robyn…you have to…It’s hot as hell right now)

Warning: I will advise you that if you do not like big hair…this wig fluffs up with time. It is seriously a lot of hair. And not only is it a lot of hair, it’s pretty long too. If you’re short like me, you might want to cut her like I did. (I don’t promote violence though!) I’m 5’1″, and before I cut her, she reached my bellybutton. I had to cut a few inches off so I could handle her without feeling like I was being drowned in synthetic fibers…No shade.
That is my only con about this wig. I can’t hold my terrible experience with the company over her, so I won’t. I will most definitely be buying her again when it cools off. Drop a line and let me know if you’ve ever worn her. Or ya know, if you buy her and love her like I do!
