Book Description:

Her first marriage didn’t work out, but that isn’t going to stop Alicia Black, the privileged daughter of the charismatic Reverend Curtis Black, from getting what she wants. One month after her wedding to her second husband, she can’t believe her good fortune. God has heeded her prayers, blessing her with Pastor JT Valentine, a handsome, dynamic man of the cloth with his own large congregation, just like her father.

reviews plate copyReading the book description I was anticipating more of a religious based book. While this novels setting was loosely based around religion it was not a religious lesson of any sort. I enjoyed the writing style, but lacked the interest in the content. The repeative nature of betrayal, lying and sins sums this book up in its entirity. I would not look at recommending this book in the future.
