Nate, Monica, Freddy and Lewis are all back in this third
installment of the Million Dollar series. Nate and Monica are
left in serious condition after Freddy shoots them and leaves
them for dead. Freddy adds more danger to the mix by
kidnapping little Nate and fleeing the state with him.
Meanwhile, Lewis is still waiting on his day in court and is
trying to get his daughter Layla back. In a bizarre twist,
Nate tries to get Lewis to help him get his son back. Will
Lewis be willing to help him? Nate's fiancé Daphanie has her
own issues to deal with when she finds out that she is
pregnant with Nate's child. But a nasty little secret may ruin
the perfect future that Daphanie has planned for herself and
Nate. Will everyone get what they want in the end?
The Million Dollar Demise is the perfect final
installment to The Million Dollar trilogy. RM Johnson once
again brought back the characters that we all love and hate.
This story picks up right where The Million Dollar
Deception leaves off with Freddy shooting Nate and Monica.
The non-stop drama continues throughout the whole book and
will keep you glued to the pages. Once again Nate is as
ruthless as ever in his various schemes to get what he wants.
Johnson did a good job with adding a plethora of shocking
twists to this story. Although this is supposed to be the
final installment of this series, you can clearly tell by the
end of this book that there could be possibly another
installment in the future. The Million Dollar Demise is
a true page-turner that doesn't disappoint.
Why Men Fear
Marriage is RM Johnson's first non-fiction book that
addresses the reluctance of why some men don't want to jump
the broom. At first glance, you may think that this book is
just another dry self-help book, but it's a lot more than
that. There is a lot of worthwhile information that women need
to take heed. Johnson addresses such topics as finding a man
that's ready for marriage, the different types of men, and
what to do once you find your soul mate.
Johnson pulls no punches in Why Men Fear Marriage, and
this material is presented in way that's not preachy or
demeaning to women. Johnson even shares his own experiences
and feelings about marriage. Why Men Fear Marriage is
an interesting take on a very timely subject.

When things were not working the way she thought, she tried
to do things his way. Friends and family were starting to see

Her sister Robyn and best friend Graciela were determined to
make Jana see what was really going on in her marriage and in
her life. Will she be too far gone for them to reach her, or
will her faith in God rescue her?
I have loved every book that I've read by Jacquelin Thomas.
After reading a couple of chapters, you kind of see where
The Ideal Wife was going.
It was becoming a little too predictable. Even though
you could tell what was going to happen next, I don't think
the reader would be disappointed. I always enjoy the detail
that Ms. Thomas puts in her books and how you know that God is
always in control. The Ideal Wife
is a quick read, and overall a very good book.

His daughter, Deborah, was ready and willing to accept the
past and try to build a relationship with her father. Michael
on the other hand was not. He was so angry with his dad that

out for revenge. Nothing Abraham could say or do could change
Michael's mind about his intentions. When Isaac is hit with a
life-threatening illness, Michael thought he would capitalize
from it and gives his father an ultimatum. What will Abraham
sacrifice for the life of his son?
In the book, Sins of the Father, author Angela
Benson brought to life the biblical story of Abraham and put a
modern twist on it. The way she writes each character makes
them so realistic. In certain parts of the book, you can
envision the pain and suffering that the siblings went through
with not knowing each other and how upset they were with their
father. This book covers it all, jealousy, anger, forgiveness,
redemption, and joy. This book is a good read, and I
definitely recommend Sins of the Father.
