Blasian Thread #16

Love In A Nick of Time by Stephanie Jean Smith
Samantha Graham faces the challenges of starting a new consulting business with her partner Jenna Johnson. A recent breakup from her cheating boyfriend confirms her beliefs that men cannot be trusted. That is until she meets a dark eyed stranger at a disaster conference in Chicago. Samantha allows herself one night with a man who makes her forget everything except the sexual energy between them. After an intense night of hot sex, Samantha disappears and goes back home to focus on her business.

Allen Archer is furious with Samantha for leaving his hotel room without a trace. He wants more than a one-night stand from her and was angry that she didn't feel the same way. He hires and private investigator to find her, but he'd probably have more luck if he knew Samantha's last name. As luck would have it, the two lovers meet up again at one of the most unlikely places, a wedding. They struggle to find a way to make their long distance romance work while others try to keep them apart by any means, including murder. (For adult audiences, sexually explicit, multicultural romance)

  2. Hey, was Sasha Collins allowed to use that picture as her cover? I've used it in one of my fanfics and seen it on the Internet...I hope she got permission.

    Having said that, that wonderful image deserved better than "My Ninja Lover."

    1. Who you tellin'.

      When we expressed the need for better book covers, I thought "obtain permission first" was implied. While I am seeing slightly better covers, the images don't strike me as bought & paid for.

    2. Speaking of book covers I convinced my classmate to take pictures with me. Do I leave it up to you to touch it up?

    3. He's a Vietnamese hottie! Woot woot!

  3. I'm sorry but looking at these, I really wonder if I would even read them. "My Ninja Lover?" "...an Asian man, who is trained as a ninja..." I mean, enforcing stereotypes, much? lol. Asian Spice sounds like a porn title.

  4. Some of these authors seem to be obvious in what their books are focused on. Some people may get bored knowing the answers to the question.

  5. All I can say is that I've seen much much worse and disturbing titles than "My Ninja Lover". I also believe I established a few threads back that the books included here are not an endorsement in any way. I asked if I should be more rigorous in selecting the titles I decide to include in these threads but I don't recall there been much of a response to that.

    Oh well, the next lit thread will hopefully be more promising and will definitely be less offensive.

    1. Sweetie, maintain your policy of fair game. It's keeps us in the know, and if any authors are coming to the Narrative, it gives them necessary feedback.

      I like the fact that Blasian lit is expanding; I'm surprised all these books keep coming out. However, this isn't 1990 or 1980. It's not enough that the books simply exist. Quality and innovation are expected if the authors actually intend to make any money.

    2. Keep on doing it the way you're doing it. You're taking several for the team, and I for one, appreciate it. Again, you're letting us serious authors know WHAT NOT TO DO!!!

  6. I don't think "My Ninja Lover" is offensive, just incredibly stupid. Cosmic didn't pick the title. Someone may be into that kinda book, just not me.

  7. This is painful...like, excruciating. WTF is going on????

  8. What's wrong with "My Ninja Lover" is not only the title but the description. It uses the generic term "Asian man" as if all Asians are the same. And why a ninja? WHY? Because all Asians have to be ninja, samurai or kung fu masters. And Asian Spice?! But it's good to know what's out there, I guess. Thank you to the author for wading through the cesspool to provide us with this information.

    1. What I don't like was just how horrible the description was period. "the kind ninja invites her back" Come on! Even I can write a better description than that! Men are men! God blessed them with the capability of satisfying female desires! What is with the "never even looked at an Asian guy let alone considered sleeping with one but there was something special about this one, something that was turning her on" COME ON! He is a sexy male filled with hormones that create a stimulus within her. I don't like that type of description. All men are more than capable to stir a heterosexual women. Its about all the hormones! If the description is this bad (stereotypical) imagine how bad the story will actually be!

  9. Sadly, I've read Asian Spice because it was the first Blasian book I've run across. From what I recall, there was some Chinese gangsters after the guy and the woman seems to get caught up in the mix. The woman was portrayed like she never saw an attractive Asian man in her entire life so when they have sex, she's so shocked that his penis was as "good as a Black man". Puh-lease! If I'm not mistaken this book was suprt short and on top of it, there were quite a few typos.

  10. I convinced my library to buy the book "Adrienne" I got it yesterday evening and finished it this morning at 7AM. The book was so good I stayed up all night! Is there any other book as good as Adrienne?

  11. Well, since you asked...I wrote a Blasian novel last year entitled "Corruption." I think it's pretty good, and it's gotten some good reviews on Amazon & Goodreads. It also got reviewed here.

    http://blasiannarrative.blogspot.com/2011/11/corruption-book-review.html

    Now I've never read "Adrienne," so I can't say how it compares to mine or any other Blasian book. You can find it at http://www.e-junkie.com/middlechildpress

    /shameless plug over.

    1. Which reminds me, I'm not sure that I've included "Corruption" in any of the lit threads. I really should add it to the next one, along with the most recent well done and professional Blasian books I have come across.

    2. Here are two more reviews of Corruption:

  14. Worse is that she has another book titled "My Naughty Oriental Secret." I thought Oriental applied to rugs?

    1. 'Oriental Se-', sweet Jesus have mercy. >_<

    2. I actually become physically ill reading that.

    3. "My Naughty Oriental Secret. I thought Oriental applied to rugs?"

      They need to apply to ass whippings as well for that title.

      Delete
    4. You see, this is what I was talking about when I said I've seen worse.

      Though I must add that in the UK, Oriental is still used to describe people.

  15. Sasha Collins needs to tarred, feathered, and shot in both kneecaps. New folks, I mean this figuratively.

    Let's see what our lovely and brave CosmicYoruba has for us today.

    1. A Black woman who can't trust MEN in general because one guy screwed her over; therefore, this empowers her to sleep with a stranger. Oh wait, there's the obligatory people trying to keep them apart plot device. Pass.

    2. A workaholic Japanese-like guy, a disapproving family and an emotional monsoon. Pass.

    3. The first sentence in the summary perpetrates one of the worst stereotypes about Black women. Then there's China, a fling and a test of whether or not a man can leave everything he knows. At least, he's the one doing the leaving. Pass.

    4. Hell to the NO!

    Maybe I'm lazy, but I'd never EVER put so much energy and effort into trying to be with another person. Why can't these people meet, fall in love, and spend their lives fighting for or against something TOGETHER? Can't we just skip over this tired business of getting them together and move on to seeing them share their lives?

    Won't people get confused by these recycled covers?

      I wonder the same thing tbh.

    2. Recycled indeed. And there ain't a bit of shame either!!!!

      I applaud the ones who sit down, type page after page, and try to tell a Blasian narrative. But damn....I mean...damn.

    3. Won't people get confused by these recycled covers?

      Exactly. I mean, I've seen the same guy like four or five times. Bletch!!!
