Publisher's Summary

When Jason Stevens found out he had to learn 12 lessons to maybe get an unnamed inheritance from his billionaire grandfather, he was not amused. By the time he'd finished learning the imposed lessons, he'd become a different man.

Ready to tackle the duties of a running a multi-billion dollar trust, his plans for the year are once again derailed, this time by his pugnacious family. Not content with their cattle ranches and oil fields, his aunts, uncles and even his parents are determined to see every last dime entrusted to their own self-serving pockets.

With none of the reluctance he initially showed for the Gift, he eagerly accepts the challenge and pushes himself to prove not only to his family and the court but the world, that with determination and the simple tenets of the Gift, anyone can lead The Ultimate Life.

I ENJOYED THIS BOOK

I always wondered what happened after, the ultimate gift. It answered alot of questions of what happened between Jason & Alexa. I loved how all Jason fell in love with his grandfather thru the hard work and challenges he was given. This was a very interesting book. I am glad that Jason did not let the money break up his family.

Very good follow up to The Ultimate Gift

If you could sum up The Ultimate Life in three words, what would they be?

Pass it on!

What did you like best about this story?

I liked the gentleness, and the way the judge hearing the case became more involved and aware of the gifts in his life.

Which scene was your favorite?

The Forgiveness near the end.

If you could take any character from The Ultimate Life out to dinner, who would it be and why?

The judge, because he truly loved his wife after many years, and yet knew there was room to still grow, love and give.

Any additional comments?

I'd give this a 4.5 overall if possible in the ratings. I know Stovall keeps his stories brief and too the point, which I think is good for the most part. Read the first book before this one. The narrator was very good, also.

Disappointed

What I didn't like was that the author just reused all the videos, and all the successes of Jason from the first book. I would have loved to have seen it just do the outcome of each court order. And to think we went through the entire Ultimate Gift for another year.

Disappointing Sequel

Kind if a predictable repeat of the Ultimate Gift.

Reader was tough to listen to.

Couldn't put it down

It was a great follow up to the Ultimate Gift and there were a lot of insights that I wrote down to incorporate into my own life.
