A few weeks ago I was feeling stressed out by work, weather, and family and decided I needed a "Self Love" day. I took myself out to a matinee movie. I love Taraji P. Henson and romantic comedies so it seemed like a perfect fit. I got the largest tub of popcorn with extra butter and a giant cherry soda ( my guilty pleasure) then settled in to the newly remodeled reclining (and heated) chair at the AMC theater and prepared to be entertained. I know a lot of people think it's weird to go out to eat or to a movie alone but I don't mind it at all. The best part of going to see this movie in the middle of the work day was that there were only about 5 other people in the ENTIRE theater.
This movie was freaking funny! Ali Davis ( Henson) is a woman in the male dominated sports agent business. She has worked twice as hard to be successful as her male coworkers but she keeps getting passed by for a partnership. Her best friend is getting married and in honor of her last night of freedom they decide to have psychic readings done before they hit the club. The psychic (played by Erykah Badu) tells Ali that until she truly understands what men want she will never get her promotion. FYI... Erykah Badu was my second favorite character in this whole movie. She was awesome. Anyways, Ali ends up getting a little to turnt at the club, hits her head, and wakes up with the ability to hear men's thoughts. The rest of the movie is just amazing. Watching Ali try to land the biggest deal of her life while balancing a new relationship and her powers is comic genius.
This movie has something for everyone so fellas don't think of this as a chick flick or you will miss out on Tracy Morgan and all the other amazing men that make up the cast. I will be adding this to my home library for sure when it drops.

From New York Times Bestseller Mimi Jean Pamfiloff comes BATTLE OF THE BULGE, Book Four of the
OHellNO Series. (A Standalone.)
“Chicks can’t be bodyguards. Especially hot chicks.”
MY NAME IS MITCH HOFER. I’m a world-famous swimmer from Australia, best known for three things:
my gold medals, my looks, and filling out a swimsuit with my…eh-hem—bulky equipment. Let’s just say
there’s a reason my nickname is “the Bulge.”
But beyond the fame, sponsors, and glory, there’s more to me than people know, including one hell of a
mess I’ve gotten mixed up in. Life-or-death stuff, so bring in the professionals. Just don’t give me a chick
bodyguard. Especially a young hot one who distracts me at every turn and hates my guts…
MY NAME IS ABI CARTER, and I hate Mitch Hofer. Yeah, he might be the sexiest champion swimmer in
the world, but I’d give this guy a gold medal for being a first-class jerk.
Unfortunately, my boss has given me a choice—guard Mitch or get another job. And I really need the
money. I can be professional, but if Mitch says “chicks can’t be bodyguards” one more time, I just might
strangle him myself.
Still, something about the way Mitch keeps looking at me makes me think there’s more to his story. It’s
almost as if he’s trying to drive me away. But why?

I have said it before and I will say it again.....I LOVE MIMI JEAN PAMFILOFF! Her stories always make me laugh and root for the characters. I swear she just gets better with each series. This particular book can be read as a stand alone or as book 4 in the "OHellNo" Series. Mitch and Abi are my favorites. I love their chemistry and the fact that Abi pretends she's immune to Mitch " the Bulge"Hofer's very obvious charms. This book had some pretty creative scenes where people were trying to kill Mitch but the funniest was at the beginning when it's a little old lady that Abi brings down before she passes out. I recommend this book to anyone who wants to escape into a world of hot men, pretty women, and sarcasm at it's best. 5 out of 5 stars for sure.
