Publisher's Summary

Popular author Sharon Denise Allison-Ottey proudly writes what she calls "fiction with a purpose", compelling readers to look inside themselves. All I Ever Did Was Love a Man is the moving story of a single mother - on the verge of having everything she wants - who finds that perfect happiness may be an unattainable goal.

Sabrena Collins feels her life is finally coming together, now that her abusive ex-husband is a distant memory. She has a good job, two wonderful daughters, and a best friend who is more like a sister. And then there's the gentle and generous Steve, who is everything her ex wasn't.

But what about the lonely nights when the phone doesn't ring? What about the dinners that go cold? Does Steve truly return the unconditional love Sabrena gives, or are his empty promises preventing her from finding total fulfillment? There are surprises in store for Sabrena that test her courage and faith as never before in this heartfelt tale that is perfectly complemented by narrator Patricia R. Floyd's compassionate performance.

MAKES YOU THINK

I really liked this story. I think it's an eye opener for everyone. It really makes you think and reminds you that illness knows no color, race, etc. NOBODY is exempt. Great writing and great narrator.

Wowsie!

All she did was love a man. Who of us hasn't? This was a great reminder to be a little selfish and not feel guilty about putting ourselves first!

Overrall a good read with a message. A little monotonous as I thought there were several points where she could have ended the story.

I did love Patricia Floyd's Reading Style too!

All I Did was Love a Man

This was an easy listen. The plot line contained a few twists, but I had suspected the solution to the problem well before it was resolved. Regardless, of that, I still enjoyed this book.
