Fort Worth, texas native and I love to READ!!!!
I read this book years ago, and listening to it now it was as interesting as ever! I am always looking forward to releases from the Curtis Black series! 💙
readers will not be disappointed in the least!! this book brings the heat and more!!! I have to slow down or I will be done with the series faster than I can stand!!!
It really was a slow start, middle, with maybe a 45mph increase at the end... because this book is a series which is why I bought it to begin with I toughed it out.... I liked the character Taunya and even Curtis because I'm sure there are real pastors like him... it just took way to much for Taunya to find her POWER as a woman and as a wife that I got bored and started to feel the story drag on for way to many chapters! On to story 2 to see if I can continue with this Author! BTW Great narrator!
Author of Nothing Like Friends and Monogamous Intentions
I got hooked on this Rev. Curtis Black! He ought to be ashamed of himself but I loved every minute of it.
No, the narrator gave no life to the book. A person would be better of reading it. Also the story was a lil on the predictable side.
It's hard to say b/c the story was not all that appalling to me.
Mellow, basic, bland
Yes, only to get thru it.
I heard of this author a while back and wanted to hear it but was unable to find the audio version. I am glad that I have finally read this one. I truly enjoyed it
The story went on too long for apparent reason. Ir was never made clear why a well educated and gainfully employed woman would remain in a loveless relationship with a man who is openly unfaithful - especially when a handsome wealthy man awaits her.
In my opinion this book was soporific, an excellent choice if you want to fall asleep while listening. The story is fraught with trite, trivial colloquialisms and stale cliches, so very predictable and banal. I felt like I was abusing myself by listening to this story. Usually I'll listen and relisten to chapters if the novel holds my interest. CTFS was a lumbering snooze I had to force myself to finish.
I probably wouldn't listen to it again. This doesn't mean I didn't enjoy it the first round, because I did. I just wouldn't listen again.
One of the most enjoyable moments was when the deacon confronted the pastor and his mistress at church. It made me cringe, but it was pretty funny.
