Publisher's Summary

After facing his biggest sin, Ethic finds forgiveness within the love of his life. Alani is the woman he’s been searching for his entire existence, but loving her comes with a price: his soul. She wants his soul. When Alani tells Ethic she can’t be with a man who doesn’t believe in God, Ethic must face his only fear, trusting something he can’t see. With Alani’s heart in his hands and his soul in hers, they must try to piece together a life where love and forgiveness outweigh the burden of pain they have placed on one another.

Will they be able to survive their past demons and grow their once in a lifetime love, or will lack of faith end them for good? You’re witnessing history as New York Times best-selling author Ashley Antoinette pens the story of her career. Step out of reality and into Ethic’s world, where this brilliant character makes you believe in love after pain, growth after forgiveness.

Ooooo Weee Child!!!

I have NEVER been so consumed with a series as I am with Ethic. Fantastic! The characters are so well developed. The stories always keep me wanting more. Ethic and Alani's love is overpowering. I can't wait to see where this goes next. BTW...please let Nicole read the rest of the series. She's GREAT!!

Alani SUCKS

I can’t stand this SELFISH character. She has low self esteem and why Ethic love her is something that annoys me. She only thinks about her pain and she takes too long to get over things but runs to Ethic when she wants her sex itch fixed and soon as she gets her perfect scratch she play loyal mother to her dead daughter. Also she is only motherly to Ethic’s kids fir self fulfilling bc of her lack of her children that passed away. Again SELFISH. I can’t stand her. Let her die and let Ethic fall in love with someone better for goodness sake. Gosh!!! - Annoyed and Frustrated at the same time. However in general I like the series. Oh the pastor in the book sucks and the refrain from sex and date drama was wack. Also, too many sex lines. I’m over Alani being served as queen when she SUCKS! Clearly.

Book 4, more of the same.😒

Like I did with books Ethic 1, 2 and 3, I read the book and bought the Audible because I believe Ashley has talent and try to support as much as possble. BUT - in doing so and in listening to this book something just clicked and I was reminded of how many unnecessary metaphors and adjectives Ashley Antoinette uses. And after recently listening to other authors like Christina C Jones, Naomi Chase and Alexandria House, I realized just how much time is "used/wasted" in this series during all of the loooong trips down "Way Too Deep Lane".

Believe me, after all of the books in this series- we get it by now- black women (I being one of them) are strong, black love is beautiful and powerful, grief is real... But book after book do we have keep listening to all of these metaphors, parables and analogies? It is starting to feel like the story is dragging out unnecessarily. No real time passing and no real progression, just a WHOLE BUNCH of words to describe one or two scenes instead of using those same WHOLE BUNCH of words to really develop the characters and their futures. By book 4, we should be SO much further along in their lives and at this point we don't need all of these extra unnecessary descriptive words... we just want true and authentic substance.

Also, I hope that book 6 (I have already read book 5 too) will find Alani in a much more mature space because her 30'something tail is too grown for all of these back and forth games. In book 2 she said she forgave him...now here it is book 4 (and spoiler alert, book 5 too) where she still doing the back and forth with not forgiving him, fake hating him snd fake not wanting to be with him.. Only to go back and say things with such finality like: "putting her faith in a man like Ethic is effortless, he did exactly what he said he would. There was no anticipationn of letdown with him." Well if you know he is about his word, go on and stop playing these games. Enough is a daggon NUFF Alani!

Also, Nicole Small is still NOT my favorite narrator for this series because she acts like "exclaimed" and "excitedly" mean nothing, as she continued to read as flat as four sliced tires. But, she is MUCH better than that last chic Trei Taylor- because she was THE WORST!
