When Love Ain’t Enough by Stacey Covington-Lee

Can a love buried under greed, lust, and obsession ever be resurrected?
Love, commitment, and protection; what every woman wants from her man and exactly what Rozalla had with her husband, Vince. That is until the deceitful and conniving Heather Ramos worms her way into Rozalla’s life. With less than honorable intentions, she’s convinced her friend that nothing Vince has ever provided is good enough and he’s no longer man enough to fulfill her desires. Heather and her overpowering influence give Rozalla the courage to tell her husband that she’s no longer satisfied with the life that they’ve built. Heart in hand, Vince asks Rozalla what else he can do to make her happy. Rejecting his efforts, she tells him to drop dead. Little did she know the strength of her words.

The sexy and very tempting Harrison seems to possess all of the qualities that Rozalla has longed for. His passion and generosity make him the perfect guy to fill the newly open position in her heart. But when he goes from dream boat to nightmare, Rozalla longs to return to the life she once knew. However, the sins of her past and desires of new lovers may have destroyed her chances for a happily ever after. In this dramatic and sexy novel, you’ll instantly become engrossed in a tale of greed, lust, obsession, and betrayal. Find out if the love that Rozalla and Vince once shared is buried forever or if it can be resurrected from the ashes.

Book Review by Kenya E., Soul Sistahs Book Club
WHEN LOVE AIN’T ENOUGH touches on the issue of not being thankful for what you have and allowing outside influences inside your marriage and relationship. It is so easy to focus on the bad things that happen in a relationship whether trivial or immense, but Rozalla went too far. This book was well written and there was plenty of drama and dialogue to keep the reader interested. There were lots of twists and turns and eyebrow raising moments. I must admit, the ending left me with my mouth open. It did not end the way I expected it to. This book is a page turner from beginning to end. I highly recommend this book!

Book Review by Cyrus Webb, TOP 500 REVIEWER for VINE VOICE
Author Stacey Covington-Lee gives readers another great read with WHEN LOVE AIN’T ENOUGH. Even the title has different meanings for me after I read it. Some of which I’ll discuss in this review.

We’re able to meet Rozalla and Vince Harper. They are a couple that seem to have it all together and a life that many would want. That is actually part of the problem. You see Rozalla’s friend Heather wants what she has, and using her subtle manipulative skills she is able to get Rozalla to question everything that she thought she knew about Vince and what they have together. What happens next puts into motion a series of events that could destroy them all or will it reinforce that real love—lasting love—can withstand anything?

I mentioned the title. When is love not enough? That is the question that is posed in several ways. Is it enough to love someone and stay in a situation where you are unhappy or not satisfied? Is love enough even when things turn violent and potentially deadly? Is love enough when you have felt betrayed yet you can’t deny what you feel towards the person who hurt you and wants to be forgiven?

You will likely find yourself asking the questions as you look at your own life and those of the characters that Stacey has created. Consider the answers carefully, because like the characters it could mean the difference between happiness and misery, life and death.  Another literary win for an author that gets it when it comes to telling a great story, Stacey Covington-Lee’s WHEN LOVE AIN’T ENOUGH satisfies from beginning to end.
