He's the man if you're lonely, lost, or just want to feel good. He's Jermaine Hill, megahot motivational speaker who inspires people everywhere to go for their dreams and make their lives better. With a top-rated TV show, money beyond his wildest dreams, and women for the asking, he's got everything...except a reason to keep on living. For Jermaine's past taught him that life is about losing everyone you love, and the people he meets now believe friendship is strictly for mutual profit at best. Surrounded by the glitter of his success, Jermaine is in the dark and without a guide, trying to fight the depression threatening his sanity. There's only one way to happiness. He must find the faith that he's never truly known. Soon, in the face of a wrenching scandal-and a love he feels unworthy to claim-Jermaine will face his biggest challenge ever: to believe in God more than himself.

From Publishers Weekly:

Jackson, who self-published his first novel, Destiny's Cry, returns with the story of an inspirational speaker's mental anguish and its eventual alleviation through God and true love. Golden-voiced Jermaine Hill seems to have it all—fame, riches, beautiful women who can't wait to bed him, an "onyx-black" Escalade—but in fact he's so depressed he can't stop thinking about killing himself. He's still mourning the nine-year-old loss of his two best friends in a car crash, and he can't get over the irony that fame can bring isolation and emptiness. Light at the end of the tunnel comes in the form of Candace Clark, the gorgeous freelance writer who's arrived in Hollywood to profile Jermaine for a small but promising African-American magazine. Their budding romance is predictable and formulaic, but the plotting perks up when their relationship is exposed by Chantal Dixon, the tabloid gossip columnist who hires a detective to trail the couple and ends up capturing Hill's suicide attempt on camera. Jackson fails to follow through on the potential of his story line: Hill's near-instantaneous religious epiphany feels rushed, not to mention designed primarily to get him into Candace's arms for the inevitable happy ending. Clichéd scenes, stock characters and amateurish writing make this a novel better appreciated for its Christian message than its uninspired storytelling.

Review:

"Derek A. Jackson has written a powerful and inspirational piece about God's call on our lives and how to answer...This was truly an inspiring read, one that I would recommend to both believers and non-believers."
