Publisher's Summary

Best-selling authors Candice Dow and Daaimah S. Poole team up for this dazzling tale of one man, two women, and a pair of marriages.

When Dwight Wilson is offered a big promotion, the wrinkle is he must move from Florida to Maryland. Although Dwight accepts the job, his wife Tracey decides to remain in their new Florida home. Try as they might, their relationship ends in divorce, and Dwight eventually marries co-worker Alicia Dixon. And that’s when Tracey comes back into the picture—with some rather surprising news.

Seriously?

I'm divorced. I have a divorce decree from a court to prove it. I stood in front of a judge, signed my name, had a witness and got a file copy back in the mail. I didn't hear it from someone. I didn't assume it went through. I know I'm divorced. So how (in hell) could someone "think" they're divorced? And when the "wifeys" find out, is there any chance (in hell) of them living together like one big, happy family while they share a man? Seriously, I think not!

Crazy story

This book was pretty good. At first you feel like there is some good in the characters but then I just feel like they are childish and ridiculous. Tracy is selfish and childish for refusing to move to another state with her husband forcing him to commute by plane back and forth just to be with his family. When he starts feeling lonely and neglected he starts a whole new family with Alicia who has no problem sleeping with someone else's husband. The arrangement they had to live together in polygamy was just absolutely ridiculous. The narrating sounded a little funny to me and I think that was on audible part not the actual narrators.

Speechless

I am still on the edge of my seat after finishing this book! The twists and turns kept coming and with a vengeance. Your allegiance will waiver as the story unfolds

I would have loved a different ending.

Tracy should have been found out and should not have ended up married to Dwight. Alicia, although naive should have found love and had a family in the end.

Dumb

Would you try another book from Candice Dow and/or Simi Howe?

No

What could Candice Dow have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Make the story more realistic, the story was going along good until Dwight went to get the divorce, Come on people every one should know when you go for a divorce if your spouse shows up at the hearing or not you always get that nice little piece of paper that shows the marriage was dissolved. Do some research before you put this part in the book. Second of all once realized the marriage wasn't dissolved each character became simple minded idiots on what to do next. So they decide to MOVE in together?!! WOW who wrote this book a 5 year old. Once again do some research before putting this book into print. There were no strong characters in this book at all not even the parents this is not real life.

How could the performance have been better?

Research, research, research

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

none

Any additional comments?

This book was a train wreck I kept thinking is was gonna get better but it didn't. I found the book insulted my intelligence.

We Take This Gullible Man

What made the experience of listening to We Take This Man the most enjoyable?

That is was available to listen to while doing other tasks or just relaxing.

Would you recommend We Take This Man to your friends? Why or why not?

I Believe that it is just an intersting and Unique story. Most people might get upset about it though because of how certain things went down.

Who was the most memorable character of We Take This Man and why?

Alicia, because she was so set on not falling for this guy in the beginning, but ended up doing it anyway. Then some of the things that she didn't do like stand her ground after moving in. I mean, what woman is going to let another woman(regardless that is was his First wife) take that kind of control in the house her and Dwight picked out together.

Pretty Good

I enjoyed this book although the characters were crazy!!! But I wasn't crazy about the ending since it left me hanging wondering will there be a sequel?
