Love Is a Gamble But Still Try to Win: The Poetic Soap Opera (Paperback)
"Love Is A Gamble But Still Try To Win" (The Poetic Soap Opera) is a very relatable book for all adult ages. This is in no way a book for children. I repeat, this book is not for children. This book puts light on different moments in different relationships. Some moments are crazy, and some seem to be perfect. Relationships don't always work the way you think they will and sometimes, they do. Either way, keep pressing your luck. Keep trying to win. This is the only way to ever have a chance at the jack pot of love.

BOOK & AUTHOR SPOTLIGHT
ABOUT BOOK: There wasn't a sweet sixteen for Crystal like most girls her age. It was bitter-sweet as she waddled around alone, pregnant, and confused. Fast-forward twenty years and Crystal is still trying to right a wrong that she shouldn't have had to fix.Determined to emend her past misfortunes, Crystal runs to the church. But instead of making God her savior, she seeks her salvation from Marcus Powers, co-pastor of Freewill Baptist Church. Marcus is the love of her life and the very vehicle that will drive her to becoming a First Lady. A title she has wanted to own for most of her life. What Crystal fails to understand is that it will take more than being married to Marcus to make her a First Lady. If Crystal doesn't learn to un-blur the lines of her faith and flesh, she'll lose way more than just her self-worth.
