'Not My Will' by Khara Campbell

Synopsis: 

Having hooked up with her boyfriend Ty the same night they met in a club, two years ago, Virtue now wants to put a hold on their sexual relationship, but she's not sure how Ty will take it. Their relationship started with sex from day one so she's unsure of how to break the news to him. Erika, Virtue s best friend from childhood, thinks Virtue's stupid for wanting to force her man to quit having sex.

She warns Virtue that she may push Ty into the arms and legs of another woman. While on her self-discovery, Virtue meets Terrance, a new confidant who is everything she wishes Ty would be: a godly man for one. But she will find out that sometimes her will is not the best. 

Excerpt:

Virtue has been dating her boyfriend Ty for two years, he was a rebound after she broke up with her ex finance.  Virtue and Ty ended their first night together in bed and has been having a seemingly good relationship since.  During their relationship Virtue reaches out to God to try to find the missing pieces in her life -she wants to know if she really loves Ty for who he is or is it just the sex and the way he helped her get over her ex fiance, among other things.  She gives her life to Christ and in the process of walking in her faith she wants to end her and Ty’s sexual relationship to wait until they’re married to resume having sex.

Virtue struggles with finding the right words to tell Ty about her decision to abstain.  She’s afraid of how he would take it. Erika, Virtue’s best friend and polar opposite, thinks Virtue is stupid and warns her that she may be pushing Ty into the arms and legs of another woman.

Virtue begins to feel that no one in her life understands her new self journey, that’s when she reaches out to Terrance a member of her church who heads the Singles Ministry. She sees in Terrance everything she wishes Ty would be – a godly man for one. Virtue and Terrance’s friendship blossoms and he becomes her voice of reason as she deals with the challenges in her new walk of faith and her relationship with Ty.  She will find out that sometimes her will is not the best.
