A Date With Destiny (Hallelujah Series) by Lutishia Lovely

A Date with destinyOften in life we think that we have everything figured out, what we want to do in life, how it will be done and how long it will take us to accomplish those goals.  But we have to remember that what we want for ourselves might not be in the divine plan for our lives.  Sometimes you have to just let it play out to see where your successes will land and also sometimes your failures.  These things are what makes us human and will get us on the right path in this thing we call life.

Pastor Nate Thicke and his beautiful wife Destiny Noble Thicke are loving their current life.  They had to learn the hard way that life has a crazy way of making you do what you are supposed to do, even when you think that you are going about it the right way already.  The age difference between Nate and Destiny was never in issue for them because love doesn’t recognize age but when you have outside forces testing your faith from every direction you need all the wisdom that you can get.

Ron Miller and his wife Janet are faithful members of Divine Grace, the church that Pastor Thicke is presiding over.  They have been with the church long before the Thicke family got there but as far as Deacon Miller is concerned, nothing is going to change just because a new leader of the flock has arrived.

A Date With Destiny is part of the Hallelujah Series.  It has the same characters as the Hallelujah Love Series but this seems to be starting a new chapter and that means the direction is shifting.  I enjoyed reading this book because it is an easy read.  Once you sit down and start reading it is hard to stop.  The characters are so well put together that reading it is almost like listening to an audio because you can hear everything that is spoken and their situations are so real you can feel it.  Once again, kudos to Lutishia Lovely for bringing us yet another #1 novel!

A Date With Destiny is due to release on December 10, 2015 so make sure that you pre-order and if you haven’t read the Hallelujah Love series, you might want to get a move on it!  You can pre-order from Amazon.com (Kindle edition only).

the perfect revengeREVENGE IS A DISH BEST SERVED COLD ~  That very statement has been used to justify paying someone back for a wrong that you feel that they have done to you.  But how true is that statement?  Revenge and Karma might just go hand in hand when it comes to righting a wrong that you feel has been done.

Jacqueline Tate is BACK!!!  She has been released from prison and is leaving the country for good.  On her way out of the country Jacqueline has to pay a visit to some of the people who she has never forgotten while she was locked up just to make sure that they NEVER forget her either!

The Perfect Revenge is the perfect story to wrap up this trilogy.  This book has so much drama in it that you have no other choice but to sit and read it so you will know what happens next!  While you are reading this book you find yourself in your emotions with the characters and you might even be a little mad a some characters saying what you would do if it was you!  I love writing like this, it makes you want to take some sort of action in this drama just to help and that is a sign of an excellent author.  This completes the Shady Sister Trilogy but I do look forward to reading more from Lovely, she keeps us right in the thick of the story!

The Perfect Deception by Lutishia Lovely (The Shady Sister Trilogy Book 2)

the perfect deceptionHeaven has no rage like love to hatred turned, nor hell a fury like a woman scorned ~ William Congreve

Deception ~ the act of making someone believe something that is not true. How many times have we deceived others whether for good or bad?  How many times have you been deceived?  Did you like how it felt either deceiving or being deceived?  We are back with the second installment of the Shady Sister Trilogy, The Perfect Deception and there is some deception going on in this book.  The question is what will the outcome be?  Who will be successful, the deceiver or the person being deceived?

Jessica Bolton is a beautiful, thriving young woman who any man would want but she only has eyes on one man in particular.  Jessica hasn’t always had the confidence needed to have her choice of men, considering the hard upbringing that she has had but she is getting much better.  Jessica is basically a loner so trusting comes hard to her, until she meets Nathan Carver and everything changes.  Nathan is everything that she could every want in a man plus more and Jessica wants that more, but what is stopping her from getting that.

Nathan Carver is a very successful man who comes from a successful family. Nathan doesn’t let his wealth dictate who he is, he has charm and charisma and is handsome to boot so he has no problem getting women.  When Nathan meets Jessica his world stops spinning.  Nathan feels she is the most beautiful, kind, caring woman that he has ever met and he wants her for his own. Nathan realizes that she has had a hard childhood and she is very private but he wants to be there for her to give her whatever she may need.  Little does Nathan know that Jessica is going to need a little more than he is willing to give.

The Perfect Deception is the perfect follow-up book to The Perfect Affair (book 1 in the series).  It continues with that same intensity and drama from the first installation and the characters give you all of the drama and crazy that you can handle!  I love the detail that Lovely uses in this book, lets you know that either she has done her research or she is a psychopath but either way it makes for intense reading.  The Perfect Deception does not release until November 25, 2014 but it is available for pre-order so that you can be ready to be deceived right along with the rest of us!

The Eleventh Commandment by Lutishia Lovely

The Eleventh Commandment

Lutishia Lovely returns back with the eighth installment in the Hallelujah Love series and she does not disappoint.  The same intensity, fire and drama that is on page one is on the last page!

Frieda Moore-Livingston and her husband Dr. Gabriel Livingston are the epitome of opposites attracts:  she is street and would rather listen to rap and he is refined and privileged and would rather listen to Bach.  The one thing they both know is that they love Frieda and for Frieda to be happy, how they go about that might be very different but the result is the same.

Cy and Hope Taylor are living the life that they always dreamed of: beautiful ocean-front property in California, two beautiful healthy children, financially stable and a strong marriage.  There is nothing that could rock this wonderful union, nothing but a blast from the past.  Is that blast from the past enough to set the Taylor’s on edge?

Darius and Bo Crenshaw are two of the most colorful characters of this book.  Darius is an award-winning recording artist and Bo is his legal partner/manager who manages to take care of all of D&C scheduling events and the groupies too.  They live a very comfortable life with shared custody of the child that Darius has with Stacy, but as comfortable as that life is there seems to be something missing for at least one of them.

Stacy and Tony Johnson have been married for three years and are living a good life.  Tony is in the NFL and Stacy has a son by Darius so they are good.  When there are some major lifestyle changes in the Johnson household, will they be able to sustain the strong fairytale marriage that they have had for the past couple of years or is the honeymoon over and is it time to deal with reality?

The Eleventh Commandment is a very well scripted novel that has you living the lives of the characters and talking to the book to tell them what you would do.  I love when the author is so clear with the writing that is draws you into the characters lives that you take the emotional ride right along with them.  Lovely is consistent with her ability to keep us coming back for more, kudos to you!

The Eleventh Commandment is scheduled for release on February 26, 2013 so pre-order your copy through Amazon.com or BN.com.
