Publisher's Summary

Good Peoples and 4 Guys and Trouble, both Blackboard best-sellers, sealed Marcus Major’s reputation as a hot name in contemporary fiction. A Man Most Worthy is a lively story of love, ambition, sex, and friendship. At 36, self-made millionaire John Sebastian has it all - a booming business, a luxurious home, a gorgeous girlfriend, and the respect of his friends - but somehow it's not enough. Returning to the tough streets of Newark, New Jersey, he spots Josephine Flowers, the love of his life, the woman he allowed to walk away seven years ago. He is driven to reconnect with her, even though the cost to his pride is high, and even though she's now married to another. For only her blessing, her love, will prove to John that he is, at last, a man most worthy.

Critic Reviews

"Major breathes life into an old formula with his vivid, fast-talking characters and his rich descriptions of their friendships, milieu and workplace politics. His pop culture references are well deployed to give the book a fresh-but not studied-feel." ( Publishers Weekly)
"This is an entertaining and insightful novel told from the male perspective." ( Booklist)

An Excellent Read!!!

I thoroughly enjoyed this book! Marcus Major & Caroline Clay really did a great job! The heroines were completely believable and life-like, which is usually my biggest pet peeve with male authors trying to tell a story from the female perspective and failing...miserably!
Caroline Clay read this book with perfect tonality and timing & delivering just what the author was attempting to relay and the heroes/heriones were undertaking. I will definitely be looking for more of Mr Major's works in print and audio as well as Ms Clay.

Great Narrorator!

The book started out a little slow. However, I really enjoyed the overall production. I was really surprised at the revelations about one of the characters.

Love the 2nd Time Around

Great read about Love A 2nd Time Around, the characters were believable and the story made sense. Caroline Clay did an excellent job as Narrator, and she is the reason I chose this book.

A love story you'll love to read (or listen)

What made the experience of listening to A Man Most Worthy the most enjoyable?

I enjoyed the storyline and humor.

What other book might you compare A Man Most Worthy to and why?

Not ONE comes to mind.

What about Caroline Clay’s performance did you like?

You felt he emotions of each character.

If you could rename A Man Most Worthy, what would you call it?

A think the title fits, but if i had to change it maybe A Woman's Worth.

Any additional comments?

Even though I enjoyed the storyline and humor, it's a little predictable at times. It's still a very good selection for your novel pleasure or book club discussion. It has plenty of material to fill a meeting's book discussion period.
