From the NAACP Image award winner and national bestselling author Victoria Christopher Murray, a novel inspired by the seven deadly sins about a woman caught between an entertainment mogul with a shady past and his childhood friend who is out for revenge.
Is lust a sin?
Tiffanie has lived a sheltered life in a very strict household with her pastor grandfather and her grandmother in Washington, D.C. But when she meets Damon, she falls for the successful entertainment businessman despite his history as a drug dealer. Everyone sees a bright future for the couple—yet when Tiffanie meets Trey, her lustful feelings leave her confused just days before her wedding.
Trey is Damon’s childhood best friend with whom he built a successful drug business. But when the game got hot and Damon decided to leave, Trey stayed and continued to sell drugs until he was arrested and spent seven years in prison. Now he’s out and able to attend the wedding. While Damon is thrilled to have Trey back and hopes to bring his best friend into his business, Trey has other plans.
And in the end, there will only be one man standing...
Tiffanie Cooper has it all. A fiance who loves her, all that money can buy and more and pretty much the world is her oyster so why isn’t she satisfied? Living her dream come true, a man who loves her and wants to marry her and live happily ever after, what is the problem.
Damon King loves Tiffanie Cooper from the top of her head to the bottom of her feet and can not wait to make her his wife. He also looks forward to seeing his best friend who he has asked Tiffanie to pick up from the airport and who is also going to be his best man. Not knowing that Tiffanie doesn’t like this man she has never met just based on the fact he was from the past that she felt best that whatever connection they had, stayed in the past.
Trey Johnson, just home after a stint in prison looks forward to not only seeing his best friend but others, to include his grandmother Ms. Irene. When Trey walks up to greet Tiffanie after de-boarding the plane, he has plans for her that will impact not only her but also Damon in ways they never imagined just days before the wedding and lives could be forever changed because of lust and revenge.
This book by Victoria Christopher Murray is a heart thumping page turner that left me breathless. This series is excellent, and I can not wait for the next installment. I was so into this story I felt all the emotions Tiffanie went through and more. She became my friend, and I wanted to talk to her about what she was dealing with throughout the story. This is going to be a great book for book clubs to read and discuss.
I highly recommend you buy this book as I loved it and you will too!
