Book Review- Without Wings: Gambling on a Soul by Thomas Joseph Beck

J.J. Dunleavy is a family man and owner of Mom's Place Diner in Delray Beach, Florida. J.J. is a church going man as well as 'Little League" baseball coach. Everything in his life is moving along smoothly. J.J. had his two best friends working along side of him running the Diner. Then his partner ran off with $100,000 of their money. J.J. began to gamble thinking he could "earn" the money back. Instead, he became a degenerate gambler. And, his partner's wife begins to look very appealing to J.J. 
He begins to think having an affair might bring some excitement in his life. You see J.J. is being tormented by the combative Angel, LUST. In one of his desperate moments, he prayed. He did not believe that praying worked. What he does not realize is that the Angel, SERENITY, heard his faint mumbles and has decided to help. 
 So, now Jonathan Joseph Dunleavy will learn the meaning of "be careful what you pray for." Look out Delray Beach ... Daniel Peter is on his way! 

Review -
I'll start by saying that you really need to read Book 1 of Without Wings prior to reading book 2. Things will make a whole lot more sense to you!!! And both books are awesome!!!

J.J. Dunleavy is the main character of Book 2. He is the owner of Mom's Place Diner in Delray Beach, FL. JJ is a family man, church going and a Little League baseball coach. When his partner runs out on him, JJ begins to gamble - trying to make money quick. JJ has lots of issues that a tormenting him and then Daniel Peter is there to try to help him back to the straight and narrow. I don't write spoilers -- but OMG, this is like real like battles that he is facing!!!

This is an awesome book that you will find hard to put down!!!
