Publisher's Summary

If 28-year-old Monique Morrison had only one wish, it would be to fall in love with a man sent from God; a man who will cherish her forever. But Monique makes a huge mistake when she chooses to help herself. Going against her Christian values, she decides to play house and move in with her musician boyfriend, Boris Cortland. Boris is in no hurry to get to the altar now that Monique has already signed on to play the role of a wife. 

Though she's in church Sunday after Sunday, praying for God to touch Boris' heart and turn him from his wicked ways, it seems Monique's pleas are going unanswered. Suffering from neglect, rejection, and plenty of verbal abuse, Monique has all but given up on her dream of a relationship that represents unconditional love; that is, until Adonis Cortland moves in and does for Monique all of the things that Boris won't do. Could Boris' own cousin be the man Monique had been seeking?

A Snoozer

The Narrator, coupled with the story line was a bit of a snoozer to me. She did not have any enthusiasm, kept coughing in the background and just distracted me from the weak storyline.

I am an avid listener to Audio Books and feel that Authors should more selective with the Narrators who they choose. It can actually make or break their book. 👎

Great Story...Narrator...Not so much!

I love this book! Love the characters and their interactions but the narrator sounds like a second grader who is just learning how to read aloud! It totally ruins the pacing of the story and makes it difficult to enjoy.

Great Example

This was a wonderful story. It gave a great example of how some females are treated and how they lower their standards to try and keep a man that truly isn't deserving. I enjoyed the plot of the story, how even tho their is a one that under estimates you that there is always one in the shadows ready to take the place and try to correct the situation to make it better and show that it can be better than what you have allowed to be your norm. Hopefully there is going to be a part 2 to this book because Rika and Pastor Lance need to come through and show how it works for a pastor and first lady. Loved how he is a man of God and was also able to show her what her true worth was just by giving her attention and encourging words to help pick her up and place her back on the pedistal that she was made for. Mo and Adonis need to also share how they had the perfect wedding and what is truly to come next after making it back home and having to face the rif raf and scrutiny for the way things turned out at the church on her wedding day. Great read.

Narrator .. terrible... no soul

The story line was good. I was about to delete it after hearing how boring the narrator was, but I gave it a chance due to the summary. She really did the book more harm, than good

Great Story HORRIFIC Narrator

I love this series, however the narrator cannot pronounce basic high school vocabulary. This really decreases the quality of the recording. Please have someone record and resubmit.

Narrator’s performance

This narrator made so many mistakes I was wondering if she is really illiterate and was guessing at the words. I hope she has another job
