Covet by Lakisha Johnson




yearn to possess or have (something)

Karis (pronounced Car-ris) and Darius Toney have been married for seven years. Their marriage isn’t perfect but they’ve made it work. They’re active members of True Vine MB Church, she’s a photographer and he owns a tire shop. Things are, well, they are good.

Until the day, their life becomes the object of somebody’s obsession. The only downside, they don’t know who it is. This person, in the darkness has a yearning, a desire to possess something Karis and Darius has … they just didn’t know it.

Pray and fast, that’ll help, right? Well, they’re doing that and it feels like things are getting worst. Fire, turmoil, secrets and a kidnapping of a spouse. It’s clear, the person responsible hasn’t read Romans 13:9, “For the commandments say, “You must not commit adultery. You must not murder. You must not steal. You must not covet.”

  1. The book was very good but I don’t understand why the husband and wife were holy people fasting and praying speaking in tongues and cursing and in the end the wife helped Tiffany commit suicide come on now that’s not being saved that’s living a hypocritical life. My God don’t work like that!

    1. Ms. Cherry, have you ever found yourself doing things outside the will of God? Have you ever made mistakes, on your Christian journey? This book, although fiction, isn’t being hypocritical but it shows the reality of life because even the holiest person will have moments of weakness. And cussing, doesn’t send people to hell, sin and cursing (wishing evil, not foul language) has the potential too. As for the part at the end, with Karis, she found herself in a scary and stressful situation and in that moment, who knows what she was thinking.

      Thank you for reading the book, for supporting and for the chance to dialogue.

  2. Wow!!! Just completed Covet!!!! Mental illness, domestic violence, etc.have become more prevalent than we would like to believe. This novel was an excellent read. I would love to see a sequel come from the last little tidbit that Karis dropped at the end. Pastor Lakisha you keep readers on the edge until the very last word. Freaking Awesome!!!!!
