Publisher's Summary

Essence best-selling author R.M. Johnson writes African-American fiction that's as real as it gets. With hot sex scenes and dishy drama galore, Do You Take This Woman? introduces a contemporary couple whose married life is about to take an abrupt turn toward the scandalous.

Carla married Pete after her former fiancé, Wayne - Pete's best friend since childhood - cheated on her. Lately, she's begun meeting Wayne as a friend, but she's also been gauging her smoldering attraction to him. Then Pete lays a shocking secret on Carla and asks for her forgiveness: he's been unfaithful.

Carla wants to even the score, but with whom will she stray? With Pete's explicit consent, she meets Wayne in a hotel room for a night of runaway passion that soon changes everything.

Good, but unbelievably twisted

Although this is an interesting story, it got far too complicated to be believable. I'm married, but I'll be damned if I let my spouse make demands like this spouse did ... and I'm not sure I could respect him if he "let" me. I would hope that no one in their right mind would be foolish enough to play the life-altering games that unfolded in this book. I thought I was buying fiction, not a cheap soap opera!

amazing

love it, the characters are amazing and the reader is great, the story is very different and steamy. anxiety at sometimes but I wish that it was more realistic, the story makes no sense and it is not what a marriage is about 50 chapters in they still forget all what marriage is about.

BORING...AND RIDICULOUS

It was all I could do to get to the end of the first part of the book. The more I listened, the more ridiculous it became. Pete's request of Wayne....???? This story, while well told, was boring, far fetched and just plain ridiculous. Where's the love, faith, and trust? You either forgive or you don't.

My suggestion is to wait for more reviews before purchasing. The five reviews that were there for me were all good. Yes, this is a work of fiction, but nothing near anything I can relate to or refer to in real life.

I would not recommend this book.

Good Listen!

This was a good story and kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time. I hated to put it down although I must admit I was a bit disappointed with the ending. But I'll allow the other listeners to judge that for themselves. Overall, a great read!!

Crazy

This book had my head spinning in all direction. A prime example of the same way you get them is how you lose them.
