    1. Did you know that, walking around in this great country of ours, there are brown people???? Yeah, I know. And as if things couldn't get crazy enough, not all of these brown people have poverty line-single parent-excessively urbanized stories. There are middle and upper class minorities yo!!! We don't all have street swag from fighting our way through gang and drug addict infected neighborhoods every day, we're not all cholos running around South L.A. hiding from immigration, and we're not all fi [...]

    2. 03/24/2013 --I'm not going to rate this book, nor really provide much of a review. I was awarded this book as an ARC. After I requested it, the author had a freebie on . I tried to read the freebie and just didn't click with the story or the writing. I was rather concerned about the ARC.So, okay, I got an ARC copy and made two attempts in about a week and a half to read it. It just wasn't going to happen for me. To be fair, I'm not going to rate this book. I got about 30% the first time, and onl [...]

    3. Read more of the review and others @ The Book Wranglers. This book was provided by NetGalley in return for an honest review.What happens when you mix a woman desperate to have a baby, a man desperate to have the woman of his dreams, and a marriage based on a bargain? A severe headacheAh hellI really had very high expectations for this book. I read the prequel before reading this and couldn't wait to read this. But now I'm not quite sure how I feel about the over all story. Synopsis(short and sw [...]

    4. The things he does are not enough! Geez. (audible whispersync review)Well, the story started out good but fell a bit flat, dull, and annoying. The hero and heroine were just hard to like together. Raina was just a bit too much. Her character was not very pleasing or likable to be honest. NIck was supposed to be a bad boy wild child of the Alexander brothers and was basically just so nice in trying to please Raina so much it was nauseating. I just wanted him to dump her and be a bad boy again. It [...]

    5. *I recieved this ARC for an honest review from Netgalley*Spoiler alertThis is book two in a mini-series about the Alexander Family. They are a fun loving, large BLACK family that live in Virginia. The novel itself is more of a modern romance or contemporary novel. I believe it is erroneously cross listed as erotica. This was the first book I have read in the series. Perhaps I should have read the first book. Raina Winters is a twin who ends up marrying her twin sister’s boyfriend’s brother. [...]

    6. I really enjoyed this story the fights between the characters made their relationship that much hotter.I can't wait to read more about this family.

    7. Love from afar that bringeth determination! Have you ever loved someone from afar so much that you were willing to do anything to make them yours.? The things I do for you tells just that story. A story of an attraction that went awry then comes full circle to create a match made in heaven. Mrs. Malone does an excellent job of taking an unconventional way of coming together and developed it into a true love story. The sexual chemistry between the hero and heroine was off the charts and portrayed [...]

    8. I really enjoyed this book. Raina and Nick were something else. That had a true love/hate relationship that developed into a super intense love. Their coming together was unorthodox, but the building of their feelings for one another was a joy to read. The love scenes were so fiery and passionate, they make you feel like you are right their experiencing it with them. It was nice catching up with Ridley and Jackson. I can't believe those two really fell in love and married in a month, but it was [...]

    9. I have enjoyed the books that I have read in this series. I'm looking forward to reading more. This book should not be read as a standalone. You should start with one more day by M. Malone. So far the first book has been my favorite, and drew me into this series. Each book has offered views from a big happy family, romance, and suspense. In this story I loved, how crazy in love Nick was with Raina. He would do anything for her. It took Raina a while before she realized that she was in love with [...]

    10. 4 Stars3.5 FlamesI knew from the first book that Nicholas had a thing for Raina. Rania wanted a marriage, stability and a baby and she was willing to sacrifice her happiness to get it. Being engaged to a man she didn't love was what it would take to get that until he broke it off suddenly. Nick makes a proposition that she just can't pass up. He gets to finally try to show her how he feels. She isn't sure what to take of it. I mean, he was handsome, rich, sweet, romantic, hot in the sack, and so [...]

    11. Love the twins Ridley and rainaLove the twins Ridley and rainagreat follow up to book 1 I love when sequels continue with the first story such as with Jackson and Ridley. the progression was wonderful less drama then the first but enjoyed the journey of love.

    12. I hate to say that I didn't enjoy this book at all. I thought the premise made it sound interesting but it wasn't. It was tedious and annoying. This was all because of the heroine, who was the most selfish and infuriating character I may have ever read about.

    13. I had reviewed this when I originally got it but my reviews from the back of all books have disappeared so I am reviewing as I read them again.A good story with no real tension, highs or lows, no reason this should have dragged out as long as it does except for the stupidity of the heroine.It is difficult to warm to Raina even though you understand the ethos she is trying to live by. She was a b***h in book one and is no warmer in her own story. She is just too insecure and stubborn to be believ [...]

    14. Baking muffins Making babiesWhich is Raina best at? She's best at living her man. She just doesn't know it yet. The chemistry between Raina and Nick is off the charts and I don't mean just sexually. That is, "oh baby Yeah." But I also found myself snickering over exploding cupcakes and crying over how they loved each other. Nick is every woman's dream husband. We all wish we had a Nick in our lives. This book was even better than the first and that's pretty hard to top. So if Malone has hit her [...]

    15. Loved it!From beginning to end it was a great, sexy and funny story. Couldn't put the story down once I started.

    16. Very disappointing. Raina seemed very shallow and a character I did not wish to read about. Put it down after three chapters.

    17. Good readI can relate to Raina. Getting hurt and shutting down so it doesn't hurt again. But thats life and you have to take chances or miss out. It was a really good read

    19. THE THINGS I DO FOR YOU, by M. MaloneI recently received a free copy of "The Things I Do For You" to read & give an HONEST review out of the "Alexanders" series. While it's actually something you'd think of yelling at your kids, it's actually a contemporary romance. I knew I had a free read of the prequel to this series, "Teasing Trent", so I read it. Then I purchased "One More Day", the "official" Book 1 of the Alexander series. I mean, really - if I was going to read & review the Book [...]

    20. When I started reading this I was having trouble with the characters because I felt like I should already know who they were – I didn’t see a warning that this story would be more enjoyable after reading the first two books (0.5 and 1) in the series. Suffice it to say I didn’t read those two. Twenty-five year old model Raina Winters wants a baby and she wants one right now as she’s already been advised by her doctor that she’s running out of time – this seems to be related to an earl [...]

    21. uffff esta historia me gustó mucho más que la primera y no es que esa estuviera mala ni nada de eso, pero en fin, qué les puedo comentar de este segundo libro de la serie Los Alexanders, ambos personajes principales ya los habíamos conocido desde el primer libro, sabemos desde entonces que tenían su historia y una relación bastante de tira y afloja, que con este segundo libro pues logran unirse, debido a ciertas circunstancias que no dire para no spoilear.Nick para mi, es un chico muy dulc [...]

    22. Read other book reviews at Book Junkie Joint.Sweet and light. A quick, no-conflict, easy read with a strong female protagonist and an atypically dedicated playboy. While the story-line is pretty much common, the story-telling and the characters are engaging and highly entertaining. Well, as much as all romance novels and chick-lits go.If you're expecting a damsel-in-distress in this romance novel, go somewhere else. This isn't the book you're looking for. Raina, the female protagonist in the sto [...]

    23. My Review:We met these two characters in the previous book and I was excited about their story. They had an amazingly sexy single night of sex, but Raina flaked out on Nickwanting only that single night. He should have been okay with that since he's a notorious playboy. Yeah, not so much.he wanted more, so when Raina's fiance dumps her basically in front of the media, Nick steps up and claims her.See Raina doesn't want a guy to lovee wants a baby and a marriage bargain to go with it love involve [...]

    24. Review from Fairy Tale Ending Book ReviewsRead: 5 April 2013Why: Sequel to One More DayBrief synopsis: Nick had always been content with his happy-go-lucky playboy status until one woman changed that for him - Raina Winters. Since their one night stand, he hadn't been able to get her out of his head but she clearly didn't feel the same as she'd avoided him ever since.Raina wasn't looking for love, she wasn't even sure she believed in love until she met Nicholas Alexander. Terrified that he would [...]

    25. *I received this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review*I wasn’t sure I would like The Things I Do For You, because from the moment Nick showed up in the previous book, he was a jerk. I seriously hated the way he wanted to break up his brothers happiness, just because he was in love with Ridley’s twin. That being said, I found Nick very endearing in this novel. I don’t think it absolves him from any of his previous actions, but it was nice to see that there was more to him. R [...]

    26. THE THINGS I'D DO FOR NICK ALEXANDER!Have you ever read a book where you absolutely couldn't get enough of a character? I met just such a character in M. Malone's "The Things I do For You." Her male protagonist, Nick Alexander, reformed womanizer, is one of the most lovable characters I have ever had the great fortune of meeting. Early on I began to hope Raina Winter would just let him go so I could have a crack at him. Of course that would've meant I'd have to offer myself to M. Malone as a cha [...]
