Good read

I am such a fan of this series! Alicia's storyline isn't as interesting to me as that of Curtis and Charlotte, though. I really like this narrator!

Very good read; hard to put down

This author proves once again that she can write and tell a story! This book is a very good read, and anyone following the Curtis Black family will marvel at his redemption in the faith community, and how his daughter Alisha marries someone just like her father! Overall, an enjoyable read. At times, I found it hard to put this book down!. Definitely worth the read!

I am a Fan

I have enjoyed the Rev. Black books for years and this one put his daughter in the same footsteps we have seen him make. This time her morales are laxed and her new husband is the pain.

it was a good book. not any real excitement in it

kind of bland except when she found out what was happening with her husband. then if fell off again. it was more like someone relaying events than someone telling a story.

Ok

The book was ok. None of the characters were really likeable, so you really didn’t feel sorry for what they were going through. In the end the main character got revenge but it didn’t feel right since at one point she had been guilty of doing the same thing that she accused everyone else of.

Alicia' s Story

Wow! Scandal is a family trait. Trust, loyalty and deceit are all in this story

It was inevitable!!!

It was inevitable that Alicia had a bad marriage she adored her father and he was the epitome of being a screw up when it comes to relationships. Also as a child you absorb your atmosphere good and bad. So it was only natural for Alicia to be attracted to a man exactly like her father.
