By Amazon Customer on December 12, 2016

The author left me wanting more! The characters are well established which only enhanced my desire to follow Carlton and Carmen through the next phase of their lives. The author's use of poetry throughout the book felt like it was his way of letting the reader into his own mind on a deeper level. It would be unfair to this author not to give him credit for the detailed descriptions of the sexual encounters in his book. His descriptions were erotic and left me with the desire to "hunt" him down! A great read!!♡♡♡♡♡

This book is a must read. It filled me with raw emotion that only an expert narrator can do. From suspense and drama to unexpected twists and beautiful poetry I enjoyed THE CORRECTIONAL AFFAIR immensely.

I've had several people ask me what inspired me to write this book. Several have stated that they love the story, the poetry, the suspense, the romance and the dramatic climax. The most rewarding comments are those of the spiritual context within the book. Comments of their connection with the struggles they face and the temptations that seeks us all. I believe we all have the ability to rise above that which could lead us astray... It's called trust and believing in yourself!!!

*****….That’s Right 5 STARS

I purchased this book on 10/9 and now on 10/10 ...

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase

I purchased this book on 10/9 and now on 10/10 it's completed. Often we go through life and experience, rather it’s through personal experience or other relationships in our lives and witness what's expressed in this novel. It captured many points and with each chapter I was left pondering and even at times reflecting on my personal life experiences and those around me. Mr. Brooks work express how without the power of faith, discipline, and humanity our worlds could and do turn into the very things we fear. No one is greater than the higher and as our morals are constantly tested a split decision without thoughtful thought could lead us to a world of turmoil full of PAIN not just for ourselves but to many beyond our knowledge of reach!! THANK YOU for your recommendation. Job well done and I look forward to more reads!!

Amazing Novel!!! Praying for a Sequel !!

By Cherrelle Moody - August 14, 2014

I can definitely say that The Correctional Affair had me captivated from cover to cover! This book once opened will keep your mind going with a sense of imagination that's constantly taken to new heights. The characters mentioned in the book are well adapted to real life situations anyone could encounter during their own stages of life. That feeling alone would constantly have you eagerly predicting "What happens next?" and utter surprises to shortly follow. This feeling the book gives is mixed heavily with emotion, comedy, suspense, eroticism, and spiritual enlightenment which is sure to give you a feeling of fullness once the book has ended..But it also leaves you wanting more!! I highly recommend this novel to anyone that would like a great sense of entertainment at the turn of every page! The writer paints a picture so heavily I could see this being played out as if it were on stage. It would make great for a stage play or film! It's a must read!!

Sometimes The Thing That Needs 'Correcting' Isn't What You Think!

By Eden Adele - July 20, 2014


This book was a ride - beginning to end! I like stories that I can't predict the ending to and THIS is DEFINITELY one of those stories!!! The characters are people you know (or people you've been at some point) in your own life. It's a realistic story of how badly and how quickly life can spiral out of control into a direction you never anticipated. It's funny, it's heartbreaking, it's dramatic, it's traumatic . . . it's life. I'm glad there's more coming!

5 stars - I really enjoyed reading "The Correctional Affair", July 10, 2014

This review is from: The Correctional Affair: (Life has a way of taking back what it gives you) (Paperback)

I really enjoyed reading "The Correctional Affair", especially once the characters were developed. The writer built this to a climax, then flipped the ending. I thought I had it figured out, however, I was pleasantly shocked with the conclusion. What a way to flip it! work and I can't wait to purchase Mr. Brooks next novel!

The Correctional Affair is an amazing book that had me from start to finish. It drew me in immediately with the love, drama, suspense and spirituality. I started slowing down towards the end because I didn’t want the story to end. I felt like I knew the characters personally. I can’t wait for the next book. Great Job Mr. Brooks!!!

Great book.
By subrena musungu
A very good book. Very captivating and interesting. I thought the ending could have played out better. At least someone ended up happy. I am sucker for happy ending. I am also woman stuck in a unhappy marriage, contemplating divorce. So the reality of an adulterous affair really hit home. ...

Great read, full of spice and the unexpected. I echo other reviews, I could almost identify each of the characters and visualize them in my mind...The characters are great, roles good. It has a spiritual message which makes it even more special. It's a great read, I recommend it to everyone.

Hello to you all. I hope this New Year is beginning as you all prayed it will but if not don't worry, GOD WILL SEE TO THAT!!!!!
I'm sending thanks to all of your support and please look for book Two soon. Peace....


It's only been a short while since we've parted, yet I feel forever has passed. So many unsure thoughts wonder within my mind to me how long must this last. Forever I tell myself is the length of time I wish to share with you always and I cherish each moment when we're together as I faithfully count the days. Right now for me, baby LIFE just can't be better. For I wish to share this life with you,
Always and Forever...
