Publisher's Summary

Winner of the African American Literary Award for Fiction, Essence® best-selling author Victoria Christopher Murray delivers a cautionary tale about debt and the dangers of an overly tempting offer. Married at 17, Adam and Evia Langston have worked their way up from rags to riches. But as they are enjoying all the trappings of their success, a financial downturn leaves them teetering on the brink of disaster. And that’s when Evia’s boss makes the Langstons a fivemillion dollar offer they can’t refuse.

    "Awesome"

    I was a little skeptical about reading the book because I really don't need a lot of the Christian-based Blix but this book was great

    I love books, hard copy and audible. Love meeting new people and building strong relationships. I am confident in one thing. HE IS.

    "A real eye opener with an interesting twist."

    This book was definitely a faith-tester. When times gets tough, so do the decisions we must make. When in doubt, trust God regardless of what it looks like in the natural. That was my take away lesson.

    "Never play with temptation!!!!"

    I REALLY enjoyed this story. The moral content was impeccable and the correlation to the Bible story of Adam and Eve superbly written.

    "Good Message But too Lengthy"

    The story had a good message that put a spin on the Adam and Eve bible story. As the book read on, the storyline began to drag on like a worn thin Sunday morning message. #Average

    Trying to reclaim my love of reading through the audio form. Lover of all genres, but currently on a fiction and Christianity kick!

    "Waited for the Twist..."
    Would you try another book from Victoria Christopher Murray and/or Susan Spain?

    Yes.


    What was most disappointing about Victoria Christopher Murray’s story?

    There was no climax in this book. Based off of the title you would think that they would take the deal, it was implied, but that was it. There were parts where I completely tuned out because it was just filler. I didn't like the ending of the book. At all. I wanted to like the book, I really did. It was well written and narrated, but there was just a lack of depth and story development. I would have like more details about it from Adams perspective. The final chapter just seemed like it was thrown there. The epilog was weird. Strange actually.


    What aspect of Susan Spain’s performance would you have changed?

    None, she was a good narrator.


    Did The Deal, the Dance, and the Devil inspire you to do anything?

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    I gave this book 3 stars but it could actually be 2.5.

    "Good book!"

    I wish the ending would have been better but all in all it was a good listen.
    I would listen to a sequel is one was published. I really liked Adam and his values
