What can I say? KL you are truly blessed with the gift of writing. The first book I read was his most recent called Lukewarm Saint. What a book! I couldn't put it down once I started reading it. The characters came alive for me and many times I caught myself shaking my head, eyes wide open as well as "talking" to the book lol. I can't wait for the continuation of it. Now, I'm currently reading From Gigolo to Jesus. My God, my God! I knew you loved women but not in such depth that this book reveals. I do commend you on how open you were to let others know who you were tho. I pray that this book reaches who it needs to reach, and that a change will take place in their lives if needed. I can't wait to finish the book. May God continue to bless you, your family & Bravin Publishing. Let His will be done in your life! Much love my friend. I'm a fan!

I recently worked with KL during the promotion of his latest literary effort, LUKEWARM SAINT and he was a professional and made my job that much easier and I definitely look forward to working with him in the future on other projects.

Cousin, I finished reading your book, "From Gigolo to Jesus" a few days ago. K.L., as I turned each page reading and wanting more, my eyes grew wider with every "true" word you wrote on each page. Some of the stories you honestly revealed of yourself, I remember hearing first hand from you back in the day, even before you gave them "public life" in your book. Especially the chapter, "The Addiction". I was able to vividly recall what you, K.L., had told me during a few of my many visits to, what I still affectionately acknowledge as, "Aunt Chrissy's House", about your experiences as security at the short-stay motel. Cousin, you are a master of your craft and I commend and have deep respect for the honesty you were man enough to reveal and confess. That takes strength and integrity that only a "TRUE MAN OF GOD" can possess or understand. I recall saying out loud at a few points in the book, "Did Keith really expose all of himself like this"? The answer, hands down, is YES YOU DID! I can only pray that many of our other family members support your work, because you deserve it. All I can say, for myself, is I AM and I WILL continue to support you, Tiff, Bravin Publishing LLC and your future works. I now consider myself a life-long fan. I pray for continued, abundant blessings for you, your family and every seed that God has planted in you. God loves you cousin, and so do I.

The first book I read by Bravin was From Gigolo to Jesus. I was truly amazed that K L was so transparent in his writing. I was on edge waiting for Lukewarm Saint to be released. The book speaks to many in the body of Christ who want to straddle the fence without making a total commitment to Christ. The characters are real. Some authors develop characters that are unbelievable. It was refreshing to be able to relate to the characters.
Bravin Publishing I salute you for having integrity and publishing quality reading materials that uplift instead of tearing down. Much continued success.

I am officially a fan having read from Gigolo to Jesus and most recently Lukewarm Saint I am convinced KL Belvin has the stories and scenarios we as the body of believers can delve into knowing our reading is going to be a positive experience that fuels our faith instead of feeding our flesh. I loved the fact that I could leave my book on my kitchen table instead of having to read it only in stolen moments and the excitement and energy as I read was always hope for the characters. Keep up the good work.

Just read From Gigolo to Jesus. I'm inspired by the honesty and transparency that K.L. presents. His admission to his imperfections magnify God's perfection and he and Tiffany reveal the mountains they have had to climb. I have the utmost respect for this couple and wish them great success. I truly hope that this book will reach thousands struggling with these issues and that they would know the love of Christ as this couple does. Blessings to you both.

From Gigolo to Jesus was a book every man should read. They can change for the better with the help of the Lord. I really enjoy the book and will pass it on to a male cousin of mine. Great book and to know we all have a story inside of us to witness to others.

Ayani_Meli Book Review

*Title of book: From Gigolo to Jesus
*Author’s name: K. L. Belvin
*Publisher: Bravin Publishing, LLC
*Release date (or anticipated release): 2011
*ISBN:
ASIN (if applicable): n/a
Ebook ISBN:
Specs: reviewed via ebook
Website (optional): www.KLthewriter.com
Rating: Four Shouts!
Summary (or synopsis, 1-4 sentences for a short review):

This book is essentially KL’s multifaceted autobiography. He speaks candidly on his life, shortcomings, struggles and subsequent transformation from a woman hating lost soul to a strong, centered, compassionate man of God.
This chronicle of K.L.’s life has been and is unfortunately being played out every day with our young men. There are a myriad of reasons one may travel this path (male or female). The Body of Christ must step up and begin to educate our youth about sex, pornography and Godly relationships. He encourages, not just our youth, but anyone struggling with a sexual addiction to make that 180 degree turn and ‘walk it out.’
On a side note, it is important to understand that there is always more than one way (mindset) to read a book. When the author started speaking early on to parents, I chose to glean as much advice as possible – being a single mother to a growing man-child. I am constantly looking for ways to protect my child.
I understood and appreciate everything I’ve read. However, this one quote spoke more to me as a parent.
As parents we can’t allow anyone to slide past our defenses. Don’t allow anyone to get close enough to your son or daughter until you have armed them with the positives and negatives of their actions in relationships. Arm them with more self-worth than they can hold.
Help them to understand that they are the anchor to their soul; that God will be there to protect them even if they have to stand all by themselves. Use every ounce of the nurturing powers that God has given you. Form a hedge around your children that you are there even when they don’t see you.

I will no doubt reread parts of this book again…Thank you Bro. K.L. for such an enlightening and transparent look at your life and journey.

KL, your book "From Gigolo to Jesus" is an awesome book that shows your transition from boy to man. This book not only represents you, but other young men who shared similiar characteristics growing up and have now realized the errors of their ways. Your confessions and honesty had me reading page after page and feeling proud of your full 360 degree turnaround into the educated black male professional that you are now. Every adolescent black male in any community should be armed with this book. Well done classmate, well done.
