    To get ahead sometimes you have to go back

    Eric Pete is one of the most talented voices of contemporary fiction today. In his third novel, Gets No Love, he shows readers just what real writers are made of. His outstanding command of the English language gives this brother an edge over the typical, ¿in-your-face¿ drama written by many of today¿s fiction authors. Lance is the bad boy gone good. Turning his life around wasn¿t easy, but finally he has become a man that anyone would be proud of. With a blossoming computer repair business under his belt, Lance is realizing that a life of legitimacy is not that bad. Trying to maintain a relationship with his ex -fiancée is not as easy as he believed it would be, especially when a woman from his past resurfaces in his life. Confused about what steps he should take, he realizes that he has more unfinished business than he realized. Akhet is the bad boy still slightly bad. However, he has channeled his roughness into something more positive, rapping. As the hottest act signed to On Phire records, he is taking the Big Easy by storm. Questions arise in regards to his contract and the record execs aren¿t very happy with their megastar. Akhet may need to rely on his old ways to get him through this battle and there is a very good chance he won¿t come out on top. Gets No Love is a combination of hip-hop, urban drama, and romance combined in one novel. Eric Pete gives his readers everything that they have come to love and expect from him with this one.

    True Friendships Explored

    There is something mysterious about New Orleans and because of its cloak of secrecy I¿m always enthralled to read books where the scene is set in the Big Easy. I think a much truer picture is cast when a resident writes the book, then you get an accurate feeling of the atmosphere. But this book isn¿t about New Orleans its about love. It¿s not a sappy romance, its real. It¿s not urban or street, but it has grit. It has the development of plot that a seasoned reader can appreciate. No stone is left unturned, yet the book is a quick enjoyable read. Eric Pete has penned another award winning book. The protagonist Lance is heartsick. The love of his life called off their engagement and he¿s pining the loss. His best friend Akhet, the local rapper also known as AK is motivating Lance to carry on. He wasn¿t that crazy about the ex-fiancé anyway and hopes that his childhood friend can get over her. Lance has already left the bad boy persona to become a respectable business owner and is very supportive of Akhet¿s career. Unfortunately the past isn¿t always easy to escape. Akhet is haunted by his past. Lance and he share a deadly secret. Lance supports Akhet through the bad dreams and hopes he will one day be able to confront his demons and do the right thing. Finally Akhet has had enough. Relying on his street sense he makes drastic moves in his career and seeks to clean up his mistake. Meanwhile, Lance is steadily working on fixing his relationship. Soon both men rectify their situations in dramatic fashion. Action packed, Gets No Love, will garner the readers¿ attention. This is a book with wide appeal to a myriad of readers. There is something for everybody and a lesson to be learned too. Perseverance, trust and honesty go a long way. True friendship is pure joy and love is a powerful emotion.
