The Honeymoon is Over was well executed. From the beginning of the book I was drawn in. Nelsons Kennard¿s character dealt with emotional issues that men would not dare express because it is taboo for a man to hurt. Nelson was knocked down so many times without throwing any punches, and no matter what he ends up on his feet. This is the ultimate book of betrayal, lust and greed. It seems as if Nelson went through the gates of hell just to end up having amazing ¿grace¿ at the end. Mr. Johnson¿s books are very informative, and they all have a connection. He introduces subject that will have you thinking, and perhaps even change your views of life. The subliminal message of how greed destroys the best of us are --in my opinion ¿ one of the main focuses in the book. Because Nelson took his time, and worked hard, he was able to achieve the ultimate wealth. However, those who tried to take away what he worked so hard for ended up in a forever burning flame. In life, we walk in darkness, and it is sometime hard to find ¿grace¿, but if you stay focused you will eventually see the light at the end of the tunnel. Grace is within a mortal. We search, and search for what we want instead of what we need. I love the way Mr. Johnson uplifts the black family structure. The bond between Nelson¿s parents is divine. Out of their blissful relationship, they created a gem that couldn¿t even hurt a fly. This is an excellent read, and I am so grateful that God bestowed the gift of imagination on Mr. Johnson. Moreover, I am grateful that Mr. Johnson decided to share what¿s in his head for the world to view. Donna Kelly

Keith Lee Johnson returns with novel number six. The Honeymoon Is Over has ties to his previous novels. This time, Johnson recounts the tale of a man scorned. Former basketball phenom, Nelson Kennard, should be living his happily ever after. But instead, he is a jaded and bitter man after his beautiful fiancée, Parris Stalls, leaves him for another man. The other man, Shenandoah Armstrong, is a rival from Nelson's past with an unsettled grudge. As the story progresses, Parris discovers that the grass is not always greener on the other side and has a change of heart. It's Nelson that she wants. It's Nelson that she loves. As far as she's concerned, the honeymoon isn't over yet. It hasn't even begun. Johnson's collection (Sugar & Spice, Pretenses, Little Black Girl Lost, Fate's Redemption, Little Black Girl Lost 2) makes an ample case for his being considered one of the most talented authors out today. He writes some of the best contemporary thrillers on the market. In The Honeymoon Is Over, he seems to grasped the best elements of his previous novels and poured them into this one. It is a sure-fire read.

Keith Lee Johnson has really done a good job. I have read all of his books and can not wait for the next one to come out. I have shared his books with my seventeen year old daughter and all my friends at work, and none of us can get enough. If you love reading good books, pick up any one of Mr. Johnson's books. The Honey Moon is over was greaaaat, but I was not surprised.

Nelson was a man in control of his behavior.Heloved and was disappointed on the first two ladies, however, he did fine real love with Grace and his son. Grace stlye was excellent. She loved and was willing to wait. That is a real lady in my book.Parris knew how to defend her self in prison,I think deep within she loved Nelson.

Well...I thought this was going to be a page turner when I quick-read it in the book store. At the beginning, the first 15 chapter showed real promise and kept me on the edge of my seat. But as I read on, I couldn't believe that this promising book I brought was turning into something, LOL Hard to find a word for it. but RIDICULOUS comes to mind, and that is exactly what this book turns out to be. The further I got into it, the more ridiculous it became. But the ending!!LOL It was the MOST preposterous ending. Made no sense at all, it was as though, Mr. Johnson just could not formulate any plausible reasoning behide his ridiculous plot. This is the first book I have read of Mr. Johnson. Strangely, I actually liked the way Mr. Johnson writes, the manner in which his expressive words flows, and I felt the plot could have made a good read, had Mr. Johnson thought considerbly more reasonable and realistic about his characters. This book promised much more than it delivered. Overall I was disapointed. Rose

By far this is best book by Keith Lee Johnson! This story grabs you from page 1 and doesn't let go until the last page. The Honeymoon captures all the emotions involved with relationships, it takes you from the highs and lows that every relationship has. This book also has the suspense added to it that makes you unable to put it down. I found myself saying 'one more page' and before I knew it I had read the book in less then 2 days! Nelson is a very believable character with very real and raw emotions. It was nice to see this man go through some of the mental anguish that most people go through when life takes a turn you weren't expecting. The choices he made are thoughts that all of us have at one time or another to some degree. I have read all of this author's books and I love how characters from prior books make their appearance in new books. This allows you to keep up with what has been going on with them. The Honeymoon is definitely his break out book and will make a fan of you! This book sets the foundation for a lasting career in the literary field!

The Honeymoon is Over is the story of Nelson Kennard, ambitious owner of Kennard Janitorial Services. He works continuously as he wants his company to have contracts in every major city in the United States, not just San Francisco. Nelson is a competitive man by nature. He was drafted as the #1 NBA draft pick by Philadelphia. Nelson is an impulsive man by nature. He never made it to Philadelphia due to a career ending injury caused by his own stupidity. Nelson is engaged to and in love with Parris Stalls. Parris wants money and an easy lifestyle now. One night Parris calls and ends their relationship saying she is tired of sitting at home while he works. She tells him he will never be a success. Nelson is distraught and goes to Parris' house only to find Parris with a former baskeball rival, Shenandoah Armstrong. Thus begins a story of twists, turns, and surprises at every chapter. Let me say that Nelson doesn't just get angry, he gets even...or does he? This is a perfect fictional depiction of a man's reaction to rejection by a lover and the lengths he will go to prove his lover wrong. This is a fun read and, as with most of Mr Johnson's books, there is thought provoking material as well. For those of you who have read Fate's Redemption, Sterling Wise is back as he is Nelson's best friend. The Honeymoon is Over is a must read...a little mystery, a good story, an ending that will surprise you.
