Married But Still Looking: A Novel by Travis Hunter

Women have flocked to Genesis Styles ever since he was a teenager. He’s a good-looking, smooth-talking former pro-basketball player, but he has a problem: He has never been satisfied with just one woman. Then he meets Terri and everything changes. Sort of.

Genesis knows that Terri is perfect for him, and they become engaged. But Genesis just can’t seem to stop cheating on Terri nearly every chance he gets. Genesis’s best friend, Prodigy, constantly warns him that he’s going to mess up the best thing ever to happen to him, but Genesis is not ready to listen.

After dealing with a family crisis, Genesis realizes the importance of his relationship with Terri, and he begins to change his cheating ways. He knows that once he says, “I do,” everything will fall into place. But it may be too late, because one of his past indiscretions comes back to haunt him, and Terri has a few surprises of her own for Genesis.

I finished this book in 2 days. This book was interesting from the beginning to the very end. It was easy to relate to and Genesis was a hot mess, with that sex addiction. It makes you realize that the saying is true, you dont miss your water until your well runs dry !

I enjoyed this book. It had a soap opera flow and a twist at the end. The dialogue was great! The characters had typical issues. There were many viewpoints, but the author handled them well.

This is a very sorry example of how a woman (Tracie) should behave in a long term monogamous relationship. Do not buy this book if you are a smart woman with common sense and a no nonsense attitude.

This was truly a wonderful book! It really gave an insight into how and why men cheat. This is definitely on of my favorite books. I could predict the outcome but it was still a very good read.

This is a wonderful read. It was refreshing to see Prodigy's growth from The Hearts of Men. It's amazing how our childhood makes such a dramatic impact on our lives as in the case of Grace, Grover, Genesis and Phyllis. Their father really did a number on them. I felt bad for Terri. We as women say that we will not take a lot of things from our significant others, but once you're in a particular situation, circumstances will change your outlook on a lot of things. I don't think I could have forgiven him for the prostitute incident, that was a bit much. The book was wonderful. Travis did a book discussion and signing on Saturday, March 22, 2003 for Sistah's Unlimited Book Club and Between The Covers Book Club and he was simply charming, he woed the women and was so down to earth. He is very easy to talk to. Please support all his efforts, he is very gracious and a wonderful asset to our race.

This book was an excellent read. I really enjoyed the journey that the Styles family; especially Gensis,took in the pages of Married but Still Looking. It was good to see a true to life portrayal of a typical African American family. I loved the historical tidbits that Travis Hunter used to really explain the past drama behind the characters. Excellent.... The Page Turners of Decatur, Ga really loved the book.

An excellent writer. One of the best books I've read this past year. He has a great visual style of writing, which is a cross between Eric Jerome Dickey and E. Lynn Harris. I would definitely recommend this book to my friends.

From the first line of this book I was hooked. Travis Hunter did an excellent job developing his characters. I loved the ending it teaches you that you don't get as many chances as you think you should.

Genesis Styles, a good looking former ball player on his way to the altar to marry his fiance Terri is your prototypical dog. As much as Terri loves Genesis and wants to marry him she remains suspicious of his fidelity. Why can't Genesis be faithful? Was he born that way? As the reader meets the rest of Genesis family one gains a greater perspective on who Genesis really is. His family includes Phyllis the achiever who wouldn't dream of helping a black man, let alone marry one is now experiencing the bitter the end of her marriage to her white husband. Grace the peacemaker is attempting to draw her family closer together while pushing any worth male suitor away and finally there's Grover, the crackhead who's more interested in chasing his next high than he is feeding his only son. Genesis and his family are troubled to say the least but he has some influential grounding forces in his life from his best friend Prodigy and from friend/mentor, Dr. Ben. Ground as they try, Genesis is hell bent to be the dog that he is. Drastic events that touch the family and his relationship with Terry serve as a wake up call to the entire Styles family and enables them each to begin to heal the wounds of the past and grow toward the future. Though Genesis is the focal point of Married But Still Looking the story really centers around the role of the family in the making of a man. The story's ending is appropriate because it provides closure for members of the family. I would have liked to have seen more development of Genesis' family, particularly the mother Virginia and Grace but that would probably be a different book. Just as well Hunter delivers what a guy the reader will love to hate who finally grows up after swallowing a bitter pill.

I was fortunate to stumble upon Mr. Hunters first book 'The Hearts of Men' and I so looked foward to another book written by this author. When 'Married But Still Looking' was released I was at the Barnes and Noble store immediately. This book kept my attention to the last sentence. The book drew me in and made me a part of Genesis' life. I read this book in two days and I am hoping that Mr. Hunters next book will continue with the lifes lesson that Genesis needs to learn. I wish this young black author great success.

I have been waiting on a second novel by this talented young author, and once again I was not disappointed. Travis Hunter's writing style is comparable to E. Lynn Harris and Terry McMillan - where has he been hiding?! Married but Still Looking should be a required reading in pre-marital counseling as it truly dives into what a lot of men experience (and women) before they make a life-long commitment. The divorce rate might be lower if engaged couples read this book. Everyone, single and married, should read and learn from this poignant, insightful book. Hunter touches on morality, relationships, and friendships and most importantly love. Mr. Hunter I am awaiting book #3!!!
