Synopsis

This work is an astounding portrayal of trust, honesty and commitment. Three women and three lives - three sets of problems, emotions and dreams, and one man. Damon Black, the perfect man - sweet, good-looking, great in bed and seriously loaded. His fiancee is fighting for the man she loves. His ex-girlfriend is fighting for a chance to regain the support of the father of her child. She has the potential to reach for the stars, but is weighed down by the sins of her past. And a cover girl battling a lifetime of insecurities is willing to risk everything to capture his love. Is Damon Black a good, loving man or just a master player running the game? All three women will face triumphs and difficulties as they learn the lessons of self worth, happiness and the true meaning of love.

4.0 out of 5 stars A novel such as this well move you 31 Aug 2007
Format:Paperback
Author McIver "What Is Forever" has re-released his first novel as "The Price of Forever." After reading this novel I found McIver's book realistic and entertaining regarding the depiction of relationships. McIver does a good job of capturing the problems facing many couples today not just with themselves, but also concerning there past relationships.

In this story Damon, main character, comes across as a well raised young man who has been taught to respect women and knows how to treat them; he does, however, have trouble disentangling them from his life once the relationship has ended. He is such an exceptional and giving personality that he has difficulty deciding who the right woman is to whom to give his love. He has equal difficulty breaking off with the women in his life when some event interrupts their relationship. Through out this story you will wonders how Damon will fare trying to maintain his friendship with each of these women once he get married or does he? The story is also told through the eyes of the three women, and one wonders who will win out in the end. The story line moves in a moderate pace and is not at all predictable compare to some other books out there. The story captures your attention from the beginning as he tries to do the right thing by all these women.

I'm always interested in reading the male prospective of a relationship and I was captivated by Damon's integrity and his style of fidelity. These women had a reason for loving Damon, and at some point in time he thought he loved each of them. Mr. McIver's ability to create believable scenarios, and his ability to interweave each woman's story into Damon's life and story is remarkable and imaginative, and the mark of a talented writer. You will enjoy this author's approach on romance.

3.0 out of 5 stars Does a Man Like Damon Really Exist? 29 Aug 2006
By Wanda Toby - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Joel McIver gives the reader an insightful and loving story of three women linked together by one man. The novel, The Price of Forever, is about Alexis and Damon who together have reached a point in their relationship where they are planning to take it to the next level of marriage; however, before they can do that some baggage needs to be checked and it is Damon lugging them around. Damon has a beautiful daughter that he takes full resp onsibility for but finds he cannot avoid the baby mama drama. If that were all, Alexis would not have any issues dealing with it. Unfortunately, Damon also has an unbalanced pseudo ex-girlfriend for whom he feels responsible.

McIver weaves in and out of the past skillfully; although, there should be some visual indication to the reader that one is no longer in the present. The characters are likable but not enough to make me have a vested interest in what happens to them. In truth, I could empathize with Alexis and the other women because on some level Damon seems like the perfect guy. He is fine as all get out. If the cover does not convince you of Damon‚(tm)s hotness, then the description McIver sprinkles throughout the novel is enough to create a perfectly sculpted man in your head. Damon is giving, loving, gentle and just the right amount of rough neck. His flaws are so subtle that trouble is not noticed until it is too late. McIver does a great job of developing the char acters but does not do enough to make me lov e the characters or even like them that much.

Nevertheless, it was a good story. My only main issue was that a character was given a diagnosis of bipolar that seemed to come out of nowhere. I found that McIver did not properly layout the foundation for the introduction of the bipolar diagnosis. Sure, the chick was crazy (not in the clinical sense) but I know lots of crazy chicks that would not be characterized as bipolar. I though there were plenty of opportunities presented when McIver could have demonstrated the character going through the manic phase and then the depressive phase or vice versa. It would have been more believable if the character had been diagnosed with depression instead of the former.

4.0 out of 5 stars It's a Heavy Price 7 July 2006
By S. Carmon - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This book was a great read and was very well written. The four main characters and their conflicts mingled perfectly to create an emotional and stirring plot that makes you think and evaluate relationships in one's own life. The characters were believable and easy to relate to. I couldn't put it down and read it in just a few days. I found myself immediately involved in the characters' lives and couldn't wait to find out more about them, which was revealed with fluency and fitting timeliness. I highly recommend this book for both women and men!

5.0 out of 5 stars (RAW Rating: 4.5) - One Man, Three Kinds of Love 23 Dec 2006
By The RAWSISTAZ Reviewers - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Alexis, Keisha, and Tara are three women who have all been touched by Damon. Each woman has a separate past with him but by the end of THE PRICE OF FOREVER by Joel McIver all of them will be connected in a way they never imagined.

Keisha and Damon met while they were in college. What started as a friendship blossomed into a loving relationship that produced their daughter Ebony. One night changed their relationship and although they are no longer dating, the friendship they created manages to last. Damon remains a shoulder for Keisha to lean on but she must learn how to believe in and depend on herself because she doesn't know if she will always be able to count on him.

Tara and Damon meet at a coffee shop. Damon is the man of her dreams even though she claims she is deeply in love with her fiancé Gabe. When Gabe and Tara have a misunderstanding resulting in him breaking up with her and kicking her out, she runs to Damon to save her. The two never hook up but years later Damon still has Tara's heart. Unfortunately for her, Damon has moved on to Alexis.

Alexis and Damon have been dating for years when he proposes to her. She gladly accepts his proposal and looks forward to being his wife and stepmother to his daughter. She knows he is the man she desires, but issues arise that make her question if she can really marry Damon after all.

THE PRICE OF FOREVER is a touching story that addresses multiple issues. From the first page McIver had my complete attention. The opening scene sends the reader down one path but by the end of the novel they will be sent in another direction. McIver's development of the characters and the overall story speak to his skills as an author. His use of subplots add to the suspense of the novel and the twists and turns will pull on the reader's emotions drawing them deeper into the novel. He uses each woman's story, weaving them together to teach lessons. THE PRICE OF FOREVER is a definite page turner that left me wanting more from Joel McIver.
