Very different...The main character Kahla has a weakness for a married man. It's a mistake beyond her control that has her in a spot of dirty seconds. Although the book Kahla is inferior to his wife because she knew in the back of her mind she deserves so much more just like the wife. This portion of love that Kahla wants so bad comes as a temporary fix once she runs into Kevin and his family to see how happy they look as a family.

Marriage to Kevin is not a legal union of a man and woman as husband and wife. He tells Kahla what she wants to hear, "I'm just staying around for the kids." At that moment he analyze the expression on her face which gave him the green light to go forward. Remind you he is a cop... At first I didn't like Kevin but I learned to enjoy him for who he really is at the end.

Lorraine does a great job of telling this great story of two lovers in Chicago. Mistress Memoirs stands along, this is a page turner that grabs your attention and don't let it go until the end. I highly recommand this book to everyone that is looking for a great read. Can't wait for the sequel!

Mistress Memoirs by Lorraine Elzia entices the reader from the very first page.

Lyrical words and beautiful descriptions are interwoven to paint the beautiful world of Kahla, as she struggles to understand her friendship and eventual love for a married man, Kevin Eckhart. He is police officer who exudes all of the enticement coincided with the image of a man in uniform. The initial attraction between the two characters is nonstop and bulges as the novel cleverly plays out.

Set in Chicago, IL, we are introduced to Kahla , a beautiful and sassy professional who surrenders her friendship to a married man; this friendship, against her initial will, blossoms into more. She falls in love. The novel details this unorthodox tale of woo and passion while also engrossing the reader into the mind of a mistress. The whats, whys and hows of her thoughts are masterfully crafted in her Mistress Memoirs. The uniqueness of this novel is the addition of soulful original poetry that are sprinkled in¿again enhancing the realism of the character of Kahla.

Elzia has skillfully captured the essence of forbidden love while catapulting the reader into the realm of a mistress. Even paced story lines, intriguing interludes and steamy remnants are only the tip of the iceberg with this sultry fiction novel.

My only regret is that I have to wait for the sequel (fingers crossed).

Kahla took her parents' words under advisement, she didn't mess her life up with an unwanted pregnancy. Instead she got an education and she's working a great job, owns her own home and has not one, but two cars. Her closets are so laced that she could literally never wear the same outfit ever again. While her girlfriends all have hyphenated last names, are attending little league games, planning birthday parties and striving for some alone time, Kahla spends all of her time attending to Kahla.

Loneliness never echoed so loud in Kahla's life until she came into contact with Officer Kevin Eckhart. Unfortunately, she learns tall, dark and handsome was not on the market. Can Kahla handle being just friends? Will this friendship revolve into something more? Would there be benefits?

Lorraine Elzia, a new author on the scene, has given new meaning to something on the side. "Mistress Memoirs" delivers a savoir-faire line up of mistress do's and don'ts. Is it better to obey the law? Or is it better to selfishly serve and protect? I would definitely recommend "Mistress Memoirs" to others.

I quickly skimmed over all 114 pages of this piece of book. Definitely wasn't worth my money, borrow it if you want to skim too.

The question is asked -- What kind of woman becomes a mistress? African American Awards Show winner and new author Lorraine Elzia's latest offering centers around this query and is the angst of a woman in a relationship with a married man. 'Mistress Memoirs' is an intriguing storyline that is a bigger part of real life where emotions, temptation and allowing the flesh to overpower better judgment becomes habitual. It's also about how two attractive people can get into a situation for the moment where remorse and due caution is not considered despite dismissing rules of temptation if such a thing is prevalent. It's easy if the main character is Kahla Thompson, a carefree woman with nothing but time aiding and abetting the penchant for being someone's mistress; and a relentless Kevin Eckhart, an adonis with charm and charisma. Who takes the blame for being in position to be exploited? How far can, and should one go for friendship to merit the boundaries of what's taboo? What really makes temptation such a problematic issue for a married man...and why become a mistress? Kahla answers these questions in a first person point of view in this engaging and introspective narrative. This is a unique book with a catchy title, a character-driven story that speaks through the author's voice for infidelity at its best, and a darn good read! This is the story of Kahla who realizes that she is in a place where she shouldn't be -- in the land of the 'other woman' entangled with someone who's married. The author did a superb job of weaving a fabric rich with insight and psychological whims shared by the 'other woman', including throwing more light on how one can be caught up in feelings where the flesh is weak and wanting. Kahla is willing against better judgment and struggles throughout to suppress her weakness for Kevin, but soon finds herself in a pickle with omniscience hovering in the midst hoping that she'd cease and desist! I loved this book for many reasons. First and foremost it was written as a true-life idealogical narrative as opposed to straight fiction weaving around a made up tale. It constantly reads as an engaging trek into the mind of a mistress. As an added treat, the author gives more of Kahla's mindset via visceral poetry after each chapter illustrating yet, another piece for dramatic effect. It's obvious why a woman becomes a mistress (in this story)which is clearly stated how visions of who the other woman really is as viewed from the standpoint of a woman struggling with mind, body and soul. What's the moral of this story? The moral of this story is that blame can be attributed to both when caution is allowed to escape without someone taking responsibility for his or her own actions to control emotions. Mistress Memoirs is a novel that gives you a unique and compelling look at how the lure of a carrot can be so inviting despite anything that would cause one not to err! Lorraine Elzia has arrived, and I hope that others share my excitement for the next offering from this up and coming storyteller. Find this book, read it and tell somebody else about it!
