We Take This Man Review and GIVEAWAY! CLOSED

This giveaway is now CLOSED! Congratulations to Luck Happens for winning this book!



About the Book ( from Daaimah S. Poole's website)

Dwight and Tracey Wilson are living the ideal life with their two children in a brand new home in Florida. They are both excited when Dwight is offered a promotion at work, but the downside is that the job is located in Maryland. After much discussion, Tracey decides that she does not want to leave their new house. Dwight makes the decision to accept the position and return home on weekends.

Alicia Dixon has spent her life hating and not trusting men after her father mistreated her mother, but she can’t help but fall for the new guy in her company…Dwight. They both try to fight their attraction to one another, but it proves to be a losing battle-Alicia is everything that his southern wife is not.

When Alicia ends up pregnant, Dwight decides to end things with Tracey, but the process proves not to be as easy as Dwight had hoped.

About the Authors (from Amazon.com)

Candice Dow is a native of Baltimore, MD and graduate of the University of Maryland Eastern Shore and Johns Hopkins University. Before becoming a full-time writer, she worked as a Software Engineer. She is a member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. Rho Xi Omega Chapter in Baltimore, and enjoys mentoring teenage girls. Candice is the author of four novels: Caught In The Mix, Ain't No Sunshine, A Hire Love, and Tappin' On Thirty. She is currently hard at work on her next novel.

Daaimah S. Poole began writing in a black and white copybook and wrote every time she had the chance. After finishing her first novel, she got a deal with Kensington books. Her titles include: Yo Yo Love (12/03), Got A Man (07/03), What's Real (05/05), Ex-Girl to the Next Girl (05/06), and All I Want Is Everything (09/07).

MY REVIEW

I think this is a very well written book with a very sad story. I loved the authors' writing style. The chapters switched back and forth and were written from the perspective of each of the wives. I loved being able to see the story from both sides like that. There is definitely strong language and sexual content in this book so be forewarned. The story shows just how easy it is for marriages to fall apart and how important communication in marriage is. It is a classic example of how we can mess our own lives up spectacularly when we don't do what we KNOW is right.
This is a poignant book that kept my attention the whole way through. I would NOT recommend this book to anyone sensitive to harsh language and sexual content but despite those aspects I think We Take This Man has an excellent storyline that many people would enjoy.
