A young man’s faith in God is tested when he’s forced to choose between fortune or Christianity in this brand-new novel from #1 bestselling author Keyon C. Polite…NEVER WOULD HAVE MADE IT. 
On the basketball court, seventeen year old Kyler Hewitt looks sensational. He’s a well-known star who doesn’t crave attention and would prefer to go about life’s affairs in private. Unfortunately, the paparazzi isn’t having it---especially since Kyler is predicted to be the #1 overall draft pick if he chose to leave high school for the pros early…something he doesn’t have a desire to do. 
On the outside, Kyler portrays the everyday life of a regular Christian; but on the inside, however, it is a different story. His longtime girlfriend, Alexyz, is pregnant with his child; his mother, Kalysha, is struggling to make ends meet for him and his baby sister Kyerrah; his father, Jerome, has shunned him one too many times; and his high school basketball coach, Jaxson Jones, won’t be coaching him at the university he’s chosen. 
Despite the drama in his life, Kyler presses on as his walk with God is tested along the way. When he makes it to the pros, he’s met with another challenge: trade in his on-and-off-court antics geared toward thanking Christ for the fame & fortune that comes with playing professional basketball. When he chooses God over everything; everything in his life appears to be on a downward spiral. With everything that Kyler holds dear to (his new marriage, his daughter, his family, and his Christianity) hangs in the balance---God steps in right on time. 
Now Kyler is given the opportunity to prove that you can be saved and still win basketball games---but it comes by way of a ten day contract to the Phoenix Galaxy…one of the worst teams in the league last season. But with God, all things are possible. Will Kyler accept the ten day contract as the Galaxy look to him to bring them out of their playoff drought or will he trade in what God has given him in order to secure a better life? 
One young man’s amazing fight for his God, his family, and at the end of the day…himself as well. So now the question is…which will he choose: GOD or FORTUNE? 
“Polite (Affairs of the Family II: Dirty Little Secrets, 2013) returns to what made him a national bestseller in 2012---real stories about real people in real situations who trust and depend totally on God. KCP’s best novel, and possibly his best series, to-date.” ---Romance Weekly
