In this New York Times bestseller, Hollywood power couple DeVon Franklin and Meagan Good candidly share their courtship and marriage, and the key to their success—waiting.

President/CEO of Franklin Entertainment and former Sony Pictures executive DeVon Franklin and award-winning actress Meagan Good have learned firsthand that some people must wait patiently for “the one” to come into their lives. They spent years crossing paths but it wasn’t until they were thrown together while working on the film Jumping the Broom that their storybook romance began.

Faced with starting a new relationship and wanting to avoid potentially devastating pitfalls, DeVon and Meagan chose to do something almost unheard of in today’s society—abstain from sex until they were married.

DeVon and Meagan share the life-changing message that waiting—rather than rushing a relationship—can help you find the person you’re meant to be with. The Wait is filled with candid his-and-hers accounts of the most important moments of their relationship and practical advice on how waiting for everything—from dating to sex—can transform relationships, allowing you to find a deep connection based on patience, trust, and faith.


  • The Wait

    By M1KE Lowry
    This book was amazing and the most important lesson i learned was that although there is a time for waiting and being with God, faith without works is dead. We have to play our part too and not just stay at home expecting for Mr/Mrs right to walk into our lives but we must Choose wisely. Great read!
  • Worth The Wait!

    By Jay Rob
    This book found its way into my life at the perfect time. I just turned 31 and I was ready to make some permanent changes in my life. While doing some research on literature about the journey of celibacy, I came across this gem and I honestly wish I would have read it much sooner in my life. Devon Franklin and Meagan Good’s story was both educational and entertaining. I highly recommend this to any soul that is interested in personal development and open to a fresh perspective on dating and marriage that is told from a spiritual perspective.
  • Mediocre

    By Grhdhebrb
    Book was mediocre, kind of repetitive wasn’t much entertaining.
  • Amazing

    By Tall Stalliooonnnn
    This book was very influential, heartfelt and most importantly relatable. As oppose to demanding or making one feel like sinners; they explained their journey of how it was not easy and things they both dealt with in the past. This book was also an eye opener and a blessing as I navigate my relationship. This God-fearing couple never wavered and we need more examples of that in our generation as oppose to the Instagram posting pics with your partner then waiting for the masses to tell us of what “relationship goals” are. God is relationship goals first and thank you to these two for allowing Him to use you.

  • Worth The Wait

    By BayonneRenee
    This book is truly more than about sex, but you’ll get into all of that once you read it. Although I’ve had the book for almost two years, I’m just now willing to accept and read it for all it has to offer and it was well worth The Wait.
