From New York Times best-selling author Kimberla Lawson Roby comes the ninth installment in her award-winning Reverend Curtis Black series.
It's been months since Reverend Curtis learned that his wife Charlotte had affairs with two different men, and for now, he continues to be cordial and respectful to her. But he's also made it clear that once their son Matthew graduates high school, he will be filing for divorce. Charlotte, on the other hand, continues to do everything possible to make amends in hopes of saving their marriage.
Unfortunately, Curtis is ready to move on and is being propositioned by a woman who desperately wants to become the next Mrs. Curtis Black. When the situation heads down a path that is frighteningly shocking, could it be the final blow to this once blessed union?

I continue to enjoy reading how Rev Curtis Black and his family struggle with love and their faith every day and how the poor choices that they have made not only impact their lives but those closet to them. How many more secrets are there!! LOL
Yes, I think the audio edition of this book is better than the print version.
I liked how the characters interacted, and how the author deals with the concept of forgiveness.
I am not sure...
Yes, this book is fun and is an enjoyable part of the Rev. Curtis Black series.
Love Kimberla Lawson Roby's books! I hope the series continue!
I used to whistle while I worked. Now I read a book!
This is the forth book I've read of the Rev. Black series, this one's pretty good. But I think this story line has run out of steam. The characters have FINALLY redeemed themselves.
Both the Rev. Black and his wife have become near and dear to me. Because I've watched them go through so many ups and downs thoughout the series. I just sit back and shake my head.
She's great at adding life to the characters. Plus with all of them you never get confused with who is who. Every voice is unique.
That's hard to answer, because I just want to ask both of them "Hey, when are you gonna learn?" Especially the wife, she just keeps making the same mistakes over and over again!
Like I said. I love this story line, it reads just like a Soap Opera. I can actually see the scenes played out. But I think the Good Reverend's story is kind of played out. I would love to revisit the daughter's story as was intro'd in "The Best ofEverything"
I love Kimbela Lawson Roby. At least, I thought I did. I appreciated her storylines...the first four or so of them. Now they are starting to become repetitive and redundant. Every new installment of her Pastor Black series somehow involves either the Pastor or his wife cheating, procreating, and a bitter, misguided, and vengeful mistress/mister. It is starting to get old and boring. I wonder how many more installments she is going to make that involve such a storyline. It would be nice to see the characters grow and have real issues that real people deal with...like dealing with the economy or stresses of jobs and our kids or battling with identity crises among the African-American community. I'm not sure if I will read another novel in the Pastor Black series but if I do I am hoping that the plot develops a bit more than it has in previous novels.
I would not listen to this title again, but I would recommend it to another.
Though I was wishing for another ending to the Curtis Black series, I am still happy with the ending and that this family was able to get on the right track!!!
AUDIBLE MAKES READING POSSIBLE AND EASY FOR ME...I AM VISUALLY IMPAIRED. I WISH THEY HAD ALL THE BOOKS I WANT I WOULD SNAP THEM UP!
yes because i liked it. i would comment that the story is not developed to full potential as i find all these robey books (a good part of the story is conveyed thru conversation).
curtis and matthew
i am repeating myself. but more depth would make this a five star book all around. it is a little melodramatic but i found the book entertaining and will buy other books by robey.
I didn't read the printed version so I cannot compare...however this was exemplary...the narrator kept my interest and was very engaging...made me laugh, cry, get angry...all the emotions were flowing...
All of Kimberla's works are exemplary!
Probably have since I am an avid audio listener...again she was great!
I would not rename it...loved the title ...
Kimberla Lawson Roby is such a classy, clean writer...her stories are very real and as audio books they come to life. I have listened to several of them...excellent choice in narrators...good work!
