Publisher's Summary

President/CEO of Franklin Entertainment and former Sony Pictures executive DeVon Franklin and award-winning actress Meagan Good have learned sometimes all we can do is wait for "the one" to come into our lives. They spent years crossing paths, but it wasn't until they were thrown together while working on the film Jumping the Broom that their storybook romance began. Faced with starting a new relationship and wanting to avoid potentially devastating relationship pitfalls, DeVon and Meagan chose to do something almost unheard of in today's society - abstain from sex until they were married.
In The Wait, DeVon and Meagan share the life-changing message that waiting - rather than rushing a relationship - can help you find the person you're meant to be with. It's a story filled with candid his-and-hers accounts of the most important moments of their relationship and practical advice on how waiting for everything - from dating to sex - can transform relationships, allowing you to find a deep connection based on patience, trust, and faith.


What the Critics Say

Good but not for me.

If you are already celibate this book may inform you about what is in store for you but it really is a persuasion type book for those not waiting to take steps into waiting. I think in that regard it's a great book. The verbiage is occasionally confusing as they address both Christians and non-Christians; so sometimes it takes a while to get to the point.

Second, I wish they had waited longer to write this book. Granted, God's timing is His timing and if this is when they believed it was to be released so be it. However, I just feel that only four years of marriage, though they had many revelations during courtship and entering into marriage, I want to see and hear about the deeper fruits to come because I do believe waiting will bring more revelation to them once they've had some serious road blocks in their marriage.

Everything just seemed too happy and I want to hear about a time where it was because of this bond they created early it kept them together. I also think they say how their experiences were without getting personal enough. I want to feel like I know them after reading but I just felt like I knew the circumstances they were in and the principles they hold. Which is fine but not nearly as impactful in my opinion.

All this said, I look forward to what projects they work on together in the future as their marriage becomes deeper and richer!

Great fuckin book.

All young gunz should read or listen to this shit, It's real fuckin shit. Save yourself for the one. If not you'll probably end up having kids with someone. That your gonna raise by yourself or share custody with. Even worse you'll end up in a relationship based only on sexual desires. While you guys tell people you love each other but fight every day and break up every month. Just my thoughts. An I ain't the kina mother fucker you'd think had already been practicing celibacy for 9months.
