Kyla and Jefferson Blake's marriage is perfect. They have passion, love, a beautiful daughter, status as an influential African American family in Los Angeles, and a boundless faith. Unfortunately, this angers Kyla's friend Jasmine Larson, a recent divorcee. Even after Kyla gets a warning, she doesn't believe that Jasmine would hurt her until the morning she comes home from a trip to find Jasmine in her bed and Jefferson in the shower. As Kyla and Jefferson decide whether to piece their marriage together with the help of their pastor and the Lord, Jasmine schemes to steal Kyla's life for herself. An emotional, realistic look at the devastation temptation can wreak by a bright new author for this new Christian fiction imprint. For all collections.

Book Description:

"Kyla and Jefferson Blake count their sixteen years together as a wonderful blessing from God. Their marriage is passionate, their daughter is a joy, Jefferson's medical career is prospering, and they have loyal friends.

Kyla knows her newly divorced and lifelong friend, Jasmine, is desperately unhappy and no amount of prayer or encouragement seems to help. Yet what Kyla doesn't know is that Jasmine has a plan to move her life forward with the type of man she feels she should have married in the first place.

A man like Jefferson.

Alexis Ward, Kyla's best friend, is single and successful and willing to wait for the right man for all the right reasons. But when "Mr. Right," Dr. Brian Lewis, finally appears, she finds herself facing a new challenge. Does she really have to walk away from what she believes in order to have a man in her life?

As people who love God, Kyla, Jefferson, and Alexis discover, each in their own ways, what happens when they truly allow God to be first in their relationship.

Full of contemporary characters who struggle to keep their strength, friendships, and daily lives framed by the Word of God, Temptation is a novel no reader will soon forget."

Really loved this book. Kyla and Blake are a happily married Christian couple. Yet, Kyla's long time friend, Jasmine, life didn't turn out so perfect. And Jasmine stops at nothing in her attempt to acquire the life she feels she deserves. Life throws Kyla and Blake an unexpected curve ball and they're forced to put legs to their faith. It's always easier to quote a few scriptures than to actually live by them. Jasmine will make you want to slap her back into reality but feel sorry for her at times as well. I would recommend this book for a sizzling read.
