Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Simi Fremont thinks she's found the perfect job: professional modeling. Her neighbor, a former model, says Simi has the right look. And since Simi and her mom could really use the extra money, why not go for it? Especially when she gets an immediate response after submitting her application. But this agency may not be all that it seems. Behind the lure is a dark and dangerous world. Caught in its net, it will take all Simi's faith just to survive.

I recently read this book and fell in love with the author. Melody Carlson not only has a gift with words and expression, she takes us into a world that is unfair and messed up. You are sucked into the story, as if you are there with Simi and you almost get a realistic experience of the human trafficking world. I loved that it was not overly religious and overpowering, but it connected Simi's faith to helping her get out of her current situation. I love how these stories are tragic and haunting, but usually turn out with a reasonable solution. There are so many ups and downs that sometimes I forget that she still will live! I have read this book about 3 times since I got it yesterday. I love it so much! I also love Damaged by Melody Carlson; this is the only other book in the series that truly overpowered me and gave me a sense of being in the main characters' shoes. They are all very good books, I greatly recommend for people of all ages.

I picked this book up this morning and finally set it down before heading to work tonight, having finished the whole thing in a matter of hours. It's one of those stories where you just can't stop reading because you're terrified of what might happen to the heroine, and you HAVE to know the conclusion before doing anything else!

When young Christian teen Simi dreams of becoming a model, she never imagines getting herself caught in such a vicious trap as human trafficking. But that's precisely what happens. She doesn't take the proper precautions to fulfill her dreams, moves too fast, and before she knows, it she's been kidnapped to be sold to the highest bidder. Simi pleads with God to spare her and rescue her, strengthening her faith throughout the difficult ordeal she experiences. Will God be faithful and send her an ever-present help in trouble?

I have only one complaint, that of an inconsistency where Simi's hands are tied and then in the same scene they're not tied anymore and she accepts a cup of water. That's it, my one complaint, and certainly not enough of a grip to warrant bringing the rating down from a 5. Melody Carlson is renowned for her books that instruct Christian teen girls to utilize wisdom when making their choices. I have always appreciated her for this tendency, but this is the very first book I've read in her "Secrets" series, and now I'm dying to read more. I love how she doesn't sugar-coat the nastiness of the world, but neither does she describe all of the nastiness with imagery. She goes just far enough to get the point across, and no farther.

Every Christian teen girl needs to read this book. I may not be a teenager anymore, but "Enticed" made even me more aware of the dangers that lurk in the online scene.

Ever had a dream that you wished it would come true and then it came along only really too good to be true ? For Simi , at sixteen years old her life is high school and work and the dream to be a "somebody" so when her next door neighbour - a former model tells Simi that she could make it as a model , Simi's hopes and dreams have risen. Simi with this new dream creates a portfolio and sends it out to modelling agencies and within a few days gets a call back from one of the agencies. However, we will discover that the modelling agency isn't all it is cracked up to be and soon Simi will be embroiled in a world she never imagined could happen in her own backyard to speak. With her strong love for God and unbreakable faith that he will help her in finding a way out of the mess and situation she has landed in , can Simi survive the next few months in a hard tough-love environment ? Or when she learns the truth of what her outcomes can be , will her faith die down and Simi be left to grasping a new reality as Serena ?

As a huge fan of Melody Carlson's novels , and if you have read her teen books - you will know that each story features around an edgy issue and the issue for Enticed is Human Trafficking, Prostitution.

This book was deff worth my time to read! Melody put a little more of God in this book then some of her others but not to the point of pushy... but the right amount for balance.

As to the the books topic itself (may contain somemild spoilers)
it was very well written though i wish we could have gotten to know Simi a little bit more before she decided to meet some random folks offline. It was mentioned that she went to church and ect but we never really get more explanation of her realtioship ndhow it came about until she is talkng to Tatiana later but it wld have been a lot better to know these things before hand or at least a lil more than just knowing she went to church and youth group on fridays it wld have explain and made it more sense to how and why her faith in God could bring her through.
I really was hoping to find more abt her captors there backgrounds and how her family was dealing with all of this it wld have been nice but i can always hope fr a novella on there backgrounds and viewpoints....
overally i wasnt dissapointed i finished it in about thre hours.... and it was worth .99 that i paid but any more i dont think i wld hve bought it i problly wld have waited.... or been upset at pying more...
