"A Real Page Turner!"
This book is a must read. The characters and scenarios are painted so vividly, you can actually see the people and the events as they unfold. This book has romance, suspense, secrets and explores the undeniable truth that we are all just humans trying to make our way through life. This author has such a wonderful gift!

Let me just say I haven't bought any urban books since I have gotten my Kindle and thats been 8 months ago! This is the first urban book I have read in a long time! Omg....I was captured from the beginning to the end! The characters were great and things like this really happen in the church today! But if you are considering this book, please DO! Me being a single mother of two boys, a full-time job, and other activies.....I READ THIS BOOK IN 3 DAYS AND THAT ISN'T NORMAL FOR ME! A straight jaw dropper.....just purchased Church Boyz part#2! Thanks for reading my review! :)

I saw that the book was free and read the reviews and thought I would give it a try. The books starts over very slow and is all over the place.

Everyone in the book is hiding something from someone and half the time you don't know what they are hiding or why. The characters are very judgmental and sanctimonious and the use of labels when identifying clothing was sickening for a Christian fiction book.
The First Lady can only wear really expensive clothes but when she leaves her husband she takes her Gucci bag and stays at the Best Western?!
The First Lady and her daughter whine a lot and were annoying.

The books never tells you anything, hence the book being a trilogy. So I assume you find out the answers to the secrets in books 2 and 3?

I will save my money

This book is not a Christian book to me. These so called contemporary Christianity is appalling to me. Is it not written that thou shall not covet thy neighbor's wife? Is it not written that be not thou equally yoked with unbelievers? this book is a sorry excuse to christian romance. One man is chasing and dreaming of and finally kissing another man's wife because he is convinced the man is not good enough for her even though he had the chance to have married her and chose not to. Why is the author trying to justify him with the reasoning of men and pushing aside the Word of God. Thou shall not covet, It is his desire that none should perish... etc. If the husband is not good enough is it not written that the character of the wife is able to convert her husband? Why these excuses that are of the world. The husband was even more faithful than his church going wife. He did not cheat on her while the christian wife and some church boy were ogling each other. Is it not written that whoever shall look at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery from the Word of Christ Jesus Himself? These are the teachings that Apostle Paul warns us against. The logic of this world. This is very sick!
Then another minister, the youth pastor, is equally yoked to a prostitute. No you be quiet! and listen .. or read. The bible says do not be equally yoke. Yeah Yeah, I know. Judge not so ye be not judge. But also BE NOT equally yoked.. Yeah Yeah, Prophet Hosea! Did you also remembered what happened to the wife? Yeah Yeah, Magdalene. Did you know she forsook her ways when she encountered the master and followed him AFTER her encounter and repentance.
LET EVERYTHING BE DONE IN ORDER. The minister's relationship with the harlot was purely based on lust! Yes!

One of the first objectives that a successful author must conquer is finding, knowing, and writing for his/her audience. H.H. Fowler has mastered his craft. When I read his Amazon Author Page, I noticed he constantly remains in Top 100 of Amazon's Religious & Spirituality Authors. And, his books are #1 or in the top 10 of his genres: Christian Urban Fiction in either Protestant-Pentecostal(Charismatic/Non-Denominational) or African American. I wondered how he managed to do all three. Then I read his free Kindle book, Part I of "Church Boyz." And I knew why & how. He writes for his audience, with a genuine heartfelt conviction, equivalent to his writing talent.

The "Church Boyz I" storyline was first of all entertaining & realistic. Yet, I loved it because it was not so realistic that it was just a sermon. The scenes contained just enough 'over the top' elements, to prevent it from becoming another sermon disguised as a novel. But each scene was written with a spiritual conviction & concern, that a lesson was found within. I applaud this author for having the courage to stick with his conviction and write it-- as a novel that both teaches and entertains.

The language is hip, urban, and youthful-- but not profane. As an older person in the age 55+ category, I appreciated his ability to write his genre in urban language, that was also clean and easily understood by someone my age. I am genuinely impressed with this author, and feel that he is a bright star on the horizon of his genre: Urban Christian Fiction. He has a broad cross over appeal, and I think his conviction to both teach and entertain will keep him where he is now: At the top of his game. I look forward to reading all of his books, and purchased "Church Boyz Book 2", right after I finished reading the free Kindle Book 1 of his series.
