Before readng Amaryllis, pick up A Man's Worth the first installment to this novel. I enjoyed A Man's Worth, but I LOVED Amaryllis!!

Synopsis:

Amaryllis is left standing alone after Randall decided to take God's lead and find his true love. Amaryllis decides to start new again by paying her older sister Michelle a visit in Las Vegas. Michelle is beautiful and a saved women with her own law firm and a man that is ready to marry her.

Amaryllis is jealous of Michelle and her fiance James, so she decides to steal James for herself.

If you thought Amaryllis was crazy in A Man's Worth, than you haven't seen nothing yet!! She is two times worse in this novel.

I LOVED Michelle's character in this novel, she is a virtious women!! Loved her and her husband to be James.

Beautiful ending!! Great novel!!

If you haven't read "A Man's Worth" you will want to read it first before reading "Amaryllis." This book picks up with Amaryllis witnessing the wedding of her ex-boyfriend Randall. She decides to move to Las Vegas and stay with her sister after her so called "sugar daddy" abuses her in the worst way. Amaryllis is self-centered and will do whatever neccessary, hurting whomever to get what she wants. Her sister Michelle, is loving, kind, saved and engaged. Does this encourage Amaryllis to "live right"? I think NOT!!! Her newest conquest is in fact her own sister's future husband. Will she destroy their relationship? What about her father, does he owe her something because their relationship isn't as strong as she believes it should be? Will Michelle's future husband give in to Amaryllis' advances? This book is extremely captivating. I read it in one day. There are times when you will want to literally "jump" through the pages and "shake" some sense into Amaryllis. HOWEVER, just keep reading and watch what God does. You know He does what He wants to do with whomever He chooses.

Great story!!!!

OMG!!!! I never thought I would read a book as fast as I did this one. Nikita, you outdid yourself! Amaryllis, the character everyone loves to hate is back and in rare form! I was waiting impatiently for this book after having read "A Man's Worth," but I don't think I can wait that long for "Crossroads!" If you like a great love story with twists, turns, and deceptions, this is it! A MUST read!

I loved both of Ms. Nichols books..."A Man's Worth" and "Amaryllis." Both are excellent reads, keeping your eyes open wondering what Amaryllis is up to next. She is truly a piece of work! I usually take my time and enjoy a book, but with these, I couldn't wait to turn the next page. Captivating; Interesting story line; an ending you didn't expect...Ms. Nichols is an amazing, truly spiritual and uplifting author, Keep up the good work and I can't wait for "Crossroads."

Two thumbs up for Ms. Nikita Nichols!!! She tells a great story filled with drama, love, and forgiveness. I like the way this author puts African American women and men in a positive light! Great storyteller and writer! She is definitely one of the finest in christian fiction!!

Thanks Ms. Nichols for having someone properly edit your books!!!

Overall rating: 5.0

Hers is one sequel that is better than the first part. A Man's Worth - the first book in this series was excellent and I must say that I had my doubts about Amaryllis being as good. Stunned!!! This book was even better. Picking up where A Man's Worth left off, I was really excited to see what tricks Amaryllis would be up to next. She outdid herself from her previous shenanigans, but even better than that was the ABSOLUTE FANTASTIC LOVE STORY between her sister Michelle and her fiance James. Hot hot hot and still hot WITHOUT all those crazy sex scenes that we seem to think we have to get used to nowadays. O to be in love!!! The author also gives us a sneak peek to the next part of this story at the end of the book. It's called Crossroads and I am already chomping at the bit trying to hold on to my seat waiting for it to come out. Lord give me patience!!!!! Nikita you have COMPLETELY outdone yourself in this one. Please, make sure you give us an insight into Michelle and James' marriage in the next part. If I had to 5 of my all time favorite books, this book would be in that group of five. That's how good it is. GET THIS BOOk but read A Man's Worth first.!!!!!!!

This book right here was just too much. It was so good, I couldn't put it down. Amaryllis was a hot mess. She didn't care who she hurt to get what she wanted. A person like her had to have some unline issues for her behavior. I loved that fact that James didn't let himself get weak enough to fall for her tactics. Goes to show that there are real men out there that really and truly love their women. I know that this is a Christian book, and excuse me for what I am about to say, but Amaryllis is so lucky that all her sister Michelle did was hit her in the nose and put her out. Had that been someone else, she would have had a well whooped ass!!! Lucky and fortunate for her that Michelle has jesus in her and a forgiving heart. The book was a GREAT read and I am now reading the Crossroads. Keep on giving us the good stuff. Thank you!!!
