Neveah is now inside "her lady", and Diana is excited to be preagnant, but she knows Diego won't be happy with having to share her now. Neveah doesn't like how the "mean voice" is treating her lady, and after Diego beats on Diana and causes her to go into labor, Neveah fears for herself and her mommy. Diego promises to be better and offers to watch Neveah while Diana works, but is he a changed man and trying to be a better dad, or is it a front so he can get rid of the baby once and for all.

This is a very emotional and touching story. It brings to reality that child abuse is happening and sometimes it's right under our noses.

Reviewed By: Crysal Trent Dotson

This book of short stories and poetry is dark, and compelling. I enjoyed the entire book, I did like some stories better than others, but overall the book is a great read. The poems are different and refreshing. I think Mr. Hutchings is a very talented Author that puts much detail and mind twisting plots into his writings. I would like to see a longer story by him.

This story is upsetting at times, but I encourage people to read it, and help stop domestic abuse. It happens in so many marriages, and this is just one story of a woman that had the courage to tell hers.

Where does the road to Hell begin?

What happens when your son turns homicidal overnight and your husband disappears on his way to work? Do you cower in fear or fight for your life? Madison Wescott fights against the odds. Distrustful of a God she doesn't believe in, she finds herself face-to-face with a world she didn't know existed and discovers her own soul is darkened with demonic connections.

With good intentions? Or by demonic design?

Phoenix Birmingham bursts into Madison’s life in a whirlwind of sarcasm and sexual appeal. A hero for the masses—and for her jaded heart—but few will ever know the sacrifices he has made or the sacrifices to come. Discovering her entire life has been influenced by multifaceted paranormal beings, Madison is determined to defeat the apocalyptic blueprint fate has decreed, but only one man dares to challenge the supernatural forces manipulating them. Even with Phoenix's aid, can destiny be denied? Or will demonic design prevail while they pay the crucial price with their souls?

In a small, sleepy Alabama town the battlefor mankind's liberty has begun...

“May I?” He held up the medical supplies.
She nodded and watched as he doused gauze with antiseptic. “Dr. Nix at your service,” he said with a grin, two adorable dimples charming her where words failed.
Madison rolled her eyes, and tipped her head to the side to give him better access. He brushed her hair off her neck, back behind her shoulder. Such a simple gesture, yet it felt terribly personal. The air grew thick and sticky with her awareness of him. She shifted in her seat and crossed her legs.
Madison stared into his eyes. Green, she thought, his eyes were green, gorgeous and intense, with ridiculously long eyelashes women would fantasize about. If they didn’t, they should. A flicker of compassion, concern, and something else she couldn’t identify flashed in his eyes.
“Ready?” he asked.
The husky tenor of his voice forced her gaze to shift to his mouth. Nice, sexy lips, designed for kissing. She gave a mental shake but couldn’t resist wondering how his mouth would feel on hers.
“Madison?” Humor deepened his voice, a touch of a smile tilted the edges of the lips she’d been fantasizing about, and she realized she still stared at them. “You ready?” he asked again, and her eyes widened in embarrassment over her foolish stupor.
She swallowed hard. “Yeah.” She whispered past the lump in her throat and forced her vision to lock on the wall over his shoulder. Good God, what was wrong with her? Her pulse throbbed like crazy, and she felt woozy. Loss of blood! Must be why she reacted that way. No other explanation made sense.
Even though the antiseptic stung like hell, the gentle touch coming from such a gruff man surprised her. “It’s not bad,” he said, dabbing the blood away. “Just a nick.”
Well, she could nix the blood loss theory. Exhaustion and stress were the only other excuses she could come up with. “I’ve suffered worse.” Her voice sounded off, kind of hoarse. She tried to clear her throat delicately, but he must have noticed her unease, because his perceptive eyes met hers. Again, she thought she caught the edge of concern reflected in their green depths.
“This isn’t the first time he’s attacked you?”
“No. It’s the first time he’s tried to seriously kill me, though.” She sighed as she closed her eyes, ready to give up fighting, the sudden tears threatening to fall. Okay, woozy and acting strange because of strain…not because of him. Seriously, as far as first impressions went, she wasn’t impressed.

The Forbidden Vampire - Reviewed By: Crystal Trent Dotson

By: William Wdowiasz

Forbidden is the worlds first vampire , though his father is Satan , his mother Gloria tries to bring love and goodness to Forbiddens soul. Satan has set out on a mission to destroy the whole world ,but when Forbidden refuses to help , he finds himself fighting his fathers demons. After meeting Richie Stockmore in the Beyond Forest , Richie is now pulled into the middle with Gloria and Forbidden for the fight between good and evil.  Richie is infected with Forbiddens blood and sent into the past , while Gloria is shot and Forbidden is left in the light of day to die , and  comes face to face with Jesus Christ , which wants to send Forbidden back to earth to end this war once and for all and save all of humanity , but he must also find the courage to destroy Richie.  
This book has alot of twists in it , at some points in it , it does seem to drag on to much , and the slang that Richie constantly uses is mildly aggravating , but the fight between good and evil is at times spine tingling.
