The Temptation of John Haynes by Shawn James

Don't Judge A Book By Its Cover!

The Temptation of John Haynes by Shawn James is not your average African-American fiction story, Mr. James takes you on a wild ride getting up close and personal with Lucifer aka "The Devil" himself. I was taken aback by the childlike cover and further intrigued by the graphic details of the characters and the intricacies of the story behind the tale. I also enjoyed Mr. James' synopsis of how the story came to be in the end.

The Temptation of John Haynes was a well thought-out book, with leading characters that were relatable, daring, trustworthy and downright scary at times. John Haynes is a vulnerable man who has lived through many disappointments and let downs only to get the ultimate chance of a lifetime as a CEO of a major company. Turning his back on his problems he jumps head in and tries to change the world a little bit at a time, while Temptress E'Steem, a well known She-Demon, is playing her role as an Executive Assistant, Temptress E'Steem is having a hard time figuring out why the Devil hates John so much and needs to claim his soul. E'Steems' purpose in this tale of strife is to convince poor John to sleep with her; securing his spot in Hell for eternity. E'Steem needs to fulfill this promise to the Devil so that she can claim the promotion she was worked so hard for. Breach of contracts and overwhelming feelings of love and devotion play a strong part in this drama-filled book where we get a first-hand look at the Devil and how he thinks and works.

I was surprised on many occasions while reading this book, and had the feeling that I was part of the story as it was unraveling before my eyes.

'The Temptation of John Haynes' is a unique novel written from varying points of view, which allows the reader a deeper insight into the characters, and what is driving them. With a deep plot and heavy theme the reader is brought into the world of the unknown, and experiences the struggles the main character is wrapped up in. This is Shawn James' best work thus far!!!

Format: Paperback
John Haynes is a guy who is very humble. He is the type that you would take home to momma. John has goals and he's determined to do it the right way. He is considered one of the good ones. Of course Lucifer does not like this one bit and he is making it his business to make sure that John does something that is not to God's liking. Now enters beautiful and sexy E'steem. E'steem has been assigned to John so that he will fall. Even though she uses many tricks and is backed by Lucifer, this is a task that turns out to be bigger than expected.

Will John fall for E'steem or vice versa? Will Lucifer win? Or will good triumph again?

The concept of the "The Temptation of John Haynes" was very good and held my attention from the first page. There were a few typos, but not enough to hinder the story. I think Mr. James did a good job.
