This one of the worst books I have read in a long time. I purchased this books hoping it to be really good since it was based on the Bible story of Samson & Deliah. This author must write for children's books. The modern-day interpertation was poorly written an just plain ghetto. I was so frustrated that I stopped 65 pages into this story to stop and write this review to warn anyone else to NOT buy this book. I wish I could get my $8.00+ back. I am an avid reader and I enjoy a variety of authors, but I will never purchase another book Shelia Gross (or whatever her name is). I suggest she go back to her real profession because writing is Not it. My major regret is that I purchased Ruthless (story David & Bathsheba) the same time I bought this book and it too is equally as bad. Readers.....save your money on these books!!!!

DELILAH by author Shelia M. Goss is a thriller. It has action from the first page to the last one. As secrets are revealed, this book spirals out of control like a tornado. DELILAH is definitely a page turner. This book is filled with a combination of emotions....love, hate, jealousy, deceit, guilt, revenge and betrayal. I could barely wait to read what was going to happen next. Delilah is a businesswoman employed by Trust Enterprises, who has been assigned and highly paid to work a special assignment. Her initial mission is to get the real estate company the land that a church family owns and occupies. But as her mission unfolds Delilah begins to focus on the pastor of the church more than the church property. Delilah is full of style, confidence, and skills to get whatever and whoever she wants.....and she wants her pastor. Delilah also has issues with some of her childhood memories and her past lifestyle, that she would just love to leave in the past. So Delilah reaches out to her dedicated pastor, Samson Judges, for counseling.....among other things. Samson Judges has it all..........He is the pastor of Peaceful Rest Missionary Baptist Church, who is loved and respected by his proud parents, his congregation, and his lovely financee, Julia. Samson knows his "soon-to-be" wife, Julia, will be a perfect, wholesome, "holier than thou" first lady....or is she as "wholesome" as she appears to be. Samson appreciates and loves his church members and refuses to sale the church property. But once Samson falls to temptation with one of his church members, he struggles with his secrets and plans to hold on to everything he has, by any means necessary. DELILAH shows that secrets can destroy regardless of one's title, status, or personality. The ending to DELILAH is surprising and breath-taking. I commend author Shelia M. Goss for such an exciting book and look forward to reading more from her collections. Her writing skills to deliver clear and clean scenes are superb. I really enjoyed DELILAH and would recommend this book to everyone who enjoys excitement and suspense. Reviewed by Barbara Morgan Memphis, TN

This is a very good book. I read this book in two days. I would have finished it quicker if I did not have to get some sleep for work. This book shows karma is always around the corner.

DELILAH captivated me from the first chapter, I completed the book within hours and I was very satisfied... Delilah is a book based on the story of Sampson and Delilah out of the bible with a more modern feel...It took me back to the days I grew up in church I've witnessed a lot of Delilah's and a lot of Samson's and while reading I felt that I was sitting inside of Peaceful Rest Baptist Church witnessing everything from start to finish! Delilah is a woman who attends the church for the wrong reason but joins for the right reason. In the process she falls for her pastor and due to his weakness as a man who can not resist temptation he finds himself in her bed! Delilah falls in love with the pastor who is scheduled to get married in two weeks.Pastor Samson Judges a man who is leading his flock finds that he is mot beyond reproach when it comes to the trickery of the enemy.Secrets are revealed and lives are ruined ! It made me want more and more when I came to an end...This is the first book that I have read by Shelia Goss but definitely won't be the last! The story that is being told is occurring in churches today!

I always expect Christian fiction to be preachy and overbearing. However, I was pleasantly surprised to find that Shelia Goss' latest novel Delilah manages to be neither. Instead, this book combines an urban fiction style with Christian overtones. Not surprisingly, the primary characters Samson and Delilah are references to the well-known biblical tale. Delilah Baker is determined to win the heart and soul of Pastor Samson Judges, a man she first came to know with underhanded intentions. There is one major obstacle standing in her way: his fiancée Julia. Just as Delilah is determined to get Samson, Samson is determined to keep his indiscretions with Delilah a well-guarded secret. However, he finds that Delilah is not a woman easily ignored. Church politics and good old fashioned backbiting and backstabbing come together in this cautionary tale of greed, lust and obsession. Although Goss creates complicated characters in a realistic way, her ending actually threatens to fall into the trap that many characters throughout the book fall into as they judge Delilah for her actions. But given the context of the entire book, perhaps this is intentional. Overall, Delilah is a good read even for those who are not regular readers of urban or Christian fiction TaKeshia Brooks AAMBC Reviewer

This author has told a story that's happen more and more everyday in the churches. What makes the story a page turner was not been preachy. Shelia is very creative when it comes to story telling until the very end. Delilah is put in Samson life for several reasons and as the storyline goes on all is revealed. Samson is not mentally strong to handle Delilah that appeared to him and others as a physical aspect of humanity of that saved Christian women. When Delilah regains her life back and put the past where it belongs, Satan surfs for destruction and works through Delilah. She knows it's wrong but Williams had a hold on her that she just can't break, it was more like a spell. Samson is very weak for the flesh and keeps giving in to Delilah with all her tricks of the trade. Everyone around him sees her for what she's really about but Delilah has him to far gone to see the truth. Sex is her device and advantage of choice to keep using to bring him to his knees. Over all the story is very good but it was for me a lot of unanswered questions to this story that could have been answered doing the story telling. For me the end was not all that. The author was nice enough to send us an advance copy of this book. Keep the stories coming and congratulations.
