Product Description

What would you do for five million dollars? Adam and Evia Langston have lived in their own little garden of Eden since the two married at the age of seventeen. Working their way up from the humblest of beginnings, the Langstons have thrived beyond anything they could have ever imagined. Now they live in the finest home, drive the best cars, and indulge in all the trimmings that signify their massive success.

But then the recession hits and rips apart the family's financial stability. Unable to support their three children and other relatives, Adam and Evia find themselves drowning in financial trouble and teetering on the brink of complete disaster. With nowhere to turn, the Langstons have no idea what to do.

Publisher's Description

What would you do for five million dollars? Adam and Evia Langston have lived in their own little garden of Eden since the two married at the age of seventeen. Working their way up from the humblest of beginnings, the Langstons have thrived beyond anything they could have ever imagined. Now they live in the finest home, drive the best cars, and indulge in all the trimmings that signify their massive success.

But then the recession hits and rips apart the family’s financial stability. Unable to support their three children and other relatives, Adam and Evia find themselves drowning in financial trouble and teetering on the brink of complete disaster. With nowhere to turn, the Langstons have no idea what to do.

Until Shay-Shaunté, Evia’s multimillionaire boss, comes to the Langstons with a five-million-dollar offer that seems so hard to refuse. Will the Langstons make this deal? Or will they recognize that the glitter of five million dollars may be far from gold?

    Everyone could use five million dollars, right? I know I could! What would you do if your boss handed you a five million dollar check for a weekend of sexual fun with your spouse? Would you accept the deal? My first reaction, "heck yeah." But after reading The Deal, the Dance, and the Devil, I would probably rethink my decision. Victoria Christopher Murray man handled her pen when she wrote this story. It is one of those books that men and women would discuss in the break room at work months later.

    Evie and Adam have always taken care of their family. Not just their children but their mothers as well. They have always been able to provide for them until they suddenly become a one family income. Their world as they know it comes crashing down on them in a huge way.

    Victoria Christopher Murray shows the readers what a person would do when their back is up against a wall. The message she brings is far more than just honoring your marriage vows. She delivers a power message displaying faith, love, sacrifice, obedience and trust(not only each other but God). God tested their faith and trust in Him. Did they succeed or did they fail? You have to read the book to find out. I give this book, five thumbs up and a fist bump!!!
