Overview

“Kimberla Lawson Roby is a true writer, a storyteller at the top of her game.”
—Eric Jerome Dickey

 

Alicia Black is back! The pampered, privileged daughter of the irrepressible scoundrel Rev. Curtis Black and protagonist of Kimberla Lawson Roby’s New York Times bestseller The Best of Everything, Alicia makes her triumphant return in Be Careful What You Pray For. Alicia is newly remarried, to a man of the cloth who unfortunately mirrors far-too-closely her rascally dad. The Reverend Black himself, star of Sin No More, Too Much of a Good Thing, and other popular Roby novels, co-stars in Be Careful What You Pray For—a tale of love and ambition that once again deals with important issues as it tells a witty, moving, page-turning story, a bestselling combination that is a Kimberla Lawson Roby hallmark.

Editorial Reviews

Rockford Register Star on Be Careful What You Pray For
“Compelling, dishy.”
Library Journal
In this sequel to The Best of Everything, Roby continues to focus on Alicia, the daughter of Rev. Curtis Black, who bounces back after a devastatingly humiliating divorce. Seemingly given a second chance at love, Alicia marries JT Valentine, a charismatic, handsome reverend who has patterned himself after every aspect of Curtis Black's life, literally. JT treats Alicia like a queen, lavishing her with expensive gifts and giving her a beautiful home, and Alicia can't believe her good fortune. Finally, she has everything she has always dreamed of having, but is her life too perfect? VERDICT Although Roby's characters show some growth in this latest addition to the Black family saga, the story is all too familiar and predictable. This novel will appeal to readers of romantic suspense and Christian fiction and Roby's die-hard fans. [See Prepub Alert, LJ 10/15/09.]—Carol Johnson, Cleveland P.L.

Kimberly is an awesome writer. Everyone of her books I've ever read has been awesome. Once I start reading them, I can't put them down. "Be Careful What You Pray For", once you read the book, the title stands for itself. Go head Kimberly, I applaud you for keeping the story coming on Curtis & Alicia, book after book, story after story. After reading the books, me & my girlfrieds always discuss the books & then we're wondering what's going to be next. Thanks for your writings.

I read this book in 2 days, and that's with a full and part-time job. I just couldn't put it down. Once again Alicia get caught up in materials things. She's always look for what a man can do for her, however if she had of listen to her father, she wouldn't had to go through what she went through. She thought she had a good husband, and she also thought she Carmen was a friend. I highly recommend this book, and for first time readers of Mrs. Roby, you need to start with Casting The First Stone.

I thought Rev. Curtis Black was a schemer but Pastor J.T. Valentine takes scheming to a whole new level. This book was a page turner to the very end.

WHAT A GREAT STORY. MRS ROBY HAS DONE THE DANG THING WITH THIS ONE. IT IS A MUST READ NOT ONLY FOR THOSE YOUNG LADIES WHO ARE LOOKING TO GET MARRIED, BUT ALSO FOR YOUNG LADIES THAT ARE HOPING AND PRAYING FOR A PREACHER OR PASTOR. WHAT LOOKS GOOD ON THE OUTSIDE AND ON THE SURFACE CAN REALLY SURPRISE YOU BEHIND CLOSED DOORS. ALICIA BLACK, THE DAUGHTER OF A VERY SUCCESSFUL PASTOR KNOWS ALL TOO WELL, THE DEALINGS AND GOING ONS OF SOME PASTORS. YET STILL SHE WANTED THE PASTOR JT VALENTINE AND ALL THE TROUBLE AND HEARTACHE THAT CAME ALONG WITH HIM. ALICIA FINALLY REALIZES THAT HER FIRST HUSBAND IS THE MAN THAT SHE SHOULD HAVE STAYED WITH. IT GOES TO SHOW YOU THAT THE OLD SAYING IS TRUE, THE GRASS IS NOT ALWAYS GREENER ON THE OTHER SIDE. WE ALL SHOULD BE CAREFUL WHAT WE PRAY AND ASK FOR, BECAUSE WE MAY JUST GET IT.

Please continue to create stories revolving around this family. I loved the storyline of this book, and how it continued from The Best of Everything. Keep up the excellent work!!

STBrantley More than 1 year ago
This book was good. It was definitely a page tuner. I started the series on book #5 and worked my way to this one. It was good but at some points it took too long to get to the juice. But when the juice came it was JUICY!!! I am glad that I found Kimberla because she is truly a gifted writer and she knows how to please her audience.

I've read almost all of Kimberla Lawson Roby's novels and she has done it again. Filled with the drama and excitment that only her characters can bring, Be Careful What You Pray For does not disappoint!

Hat's OFF to another GREAT READ!!! I was honestly thinking like Hmmm.. how could this same story from what 10+ years still be so interesting.. that is before I started reading it.. Well Some have it, and some don't. Mrs. LAWSON ROBY, has been Blessed with that skill to keep a great series interesting and GREAT afterall this time. I LOVED this one more even than I had thought I would.. again GREAT READ!!! Can't wait to see what happens NEXT.. I'm sure this ain't OVER :)

I truly enjoyed this book it was definitely a page turner. Alicia has matured alot compared to book #7. JT Valentine was a very arrogant man and truly only cared about himself. Kimberla, you did excellent job. Looking forward to book #8 .

The heading by it self makes you wonder what was it she prayed for this time. If you read her last book you should remember that she had it all to begin with, she just didn't appreciate it. I liked that fact that she used her head to bring it all to a head. Her actions was one I often have in the years have practiced myself....DON'T GET MAD..GET EVEN!!
