Publisher's Summary

Winner of the African American Literary Award for Fiction, Essence® best-selling author Victoria Christopher Murray delivers a cautionary tale about debt and the dangers of an overly tempting offer. Married at 17, Adam and Evia Langston have worked their way up from rags to riches. But as they are enjoying all the trappings of their success, a financial downturn leaves them teetering on the brink of disaster. And that’s when Evia’s boss makes the Langstons a fivemillion dollar offer they can’t refuse.

The Girl is GUUUUUD - {{{{VCM}}} - MUST READ!

If you don’t get this book you are truly missing out. First of all, how in the world are you going to proposition me about mine - The audacity. In life there are choices and stands you have to make, this work of fiction takes your mind places where on the outside looking in you know exactly what your response would be to these things, but not so much if you are in the mix. This book is awesome. JUST GET IT and thank me later.

Great Story!

I loved the story about Adam & Evia which I found out their names had a symbolic meaning. Although Evia's actions really started grating my nerves after a while...the old saying "be careful what you wish for" definitely applies. I also enjoyed the way the author "snuck in" a moral to the story - very clever. It would be nice if there was a continuation or part 2.
