Book Description

Solomon Greene made a deal with God.


If He'd send him an unattractive woman, he'd marry her on sight and do what was spiritually right. After all, he needed that kind of wife to help him escape from his sordid past.


Celeste Martin made a deal with Solomon. She'd be his ugly wife. All she wanted in return was his name. She was in love with her sister's fiance and he would be the only man she'd ever love.


Solomon had no idea that he'd find his wife fascinating. Celeste didn't know that one taste from her husband's lips would have her wanting more. Yet many strange women were between them.


Could Solomon ever escape from his past?


Could Celeste ever love her husband?

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Well Crafted March 24, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
This story begins quite interestingly, with a newlywed couple that have a secret reason for their union; they each have an agenda, and the marriage helps each get closer to fulfilling it. The characters are pretty funny, from the girl who speaks like she is an 1800's schoolteacher (as the author put it), and a guy who could be good-looking if he wasn't such a mess of a man. He also has a series of strange dreams involving bondage and candy, but in the end it all makes sense. The author also uses the character's names to her advantage, but not in a cheesy, obvious way like many authors do. This, as I said, was very well-written without explicit language or scenes, but it is still pretty steamy at times because of the author's skill in describing each scene and action.

As the book progresses, the characters evolve - leading to an interesting segue to the religious aspect; but don't let this fact steer you from reading this book if you're not a devout Christian, as this book is still a great read.

5 out of 5 for writing skill
5 out of 5 for character development
5 out of 5 for language and descriptive narrative
5 out of 5 for POV and flashback seamlessness
3 out of 5 for the cover and the price - the girl is too pretty to be Celeste; also, this would sell so much better at $2.99 to $3.99 in Kindle, and $11.99 to $12.99 for print

Total 5 out of 5

4.0 out of 5 stars Greene is definitely the new Grey February 3, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
First let me say that I am not generally "into" romance. I offered to read this and agreed to provide a review. I began reading with no preconceived ideas or expectations (other than knowing through promotions that Solomon Greene is the "new" Grey)

It didn't take long for me to feel an affinity for Solomon; and then for Celeste. Two completely different people with what they believe are different motivations. Parker did an amazing job of developing these characters, their quirks and beliefs. I also absolutely adored her love triangle: the rival/best friend.

There are so many surprises (both good and bad) sprinkled throughout that this was a well rounded roller coaster ride of emotion. Yes, I laughed and cried, felt joy and grief.

I know this is categorized as romance - but I would call it Edgy Romance and I LOVED it. This is a clean read, but the romance parts were so well written that it felt steamy (even without gratuitous sex)...how many books can effectively do that? Not to mention provide redemption for their characters? It was so cool to watch them evolve and to grow with them in that adventure. I could have handled more of the romantic steaminess as it was handled with finesse and class.

I hope more women discover this little gem...and I hope I'm not alone in having enjoyed it so much ;)
That being said, this would have been The Perfect Book with a 5 star review..but I gave it 4 stars for spelling errors that distracted me along the way.

5.0 out of 5 stars God Answers Prayers January 30, 2014
Format:Paperback
Incredibly well written. A unique love story and the power of forgiveness are just two thoughts that come to mind when reading this novel. A love story that was not birthed out of fireworks and drama, but came softly over time through trial and error. The power of love and forgiveness can conquer anything when we direct our focus to the one who is writing our love story!
Amazing sentences that formed the perfect pictures, no confusion, just anticipation as to whay was going happen next! Love this book! Five Stars all the way!

God Bless
Christina

5.0 out of 5 stars A page turner January 29, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
I wanted to title my review a different kind of romance but I was afraid folks might think I didn't like it, and I did, I really liked it. I fell in love with Solomon quickly and Celeste, unlike in some novels, made the female MC role very interesting. She was unique and strong-willed.

This novel had several surprises that I did not see coming, a love triangle that came out of nowhere, a storyline, that was a bit graphic at times, but brings home the nightmares that Solomon has with clarity, and there is the sister that is that relative we all have, but love to hide from public view.

If you enjoy a good clean romance with Christian values, and a great fall in love head over heels romance then this book is for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love and Suspense February 22, 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is a page turner. I couldn't stop reading. If you are looking for a love story that is full of suspense, this is it. Celeste and Mr. Greene, the main characters, are full of surprises. This is one book I could not figure out the ending. Good job Mrs. Cole!

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Good! February 13, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I loved this book for so many different reasons. The first is because the love of God they showed with all they went through, and second, loving your family and forgiving them as God forgave us. I hope to be reading a part 2 to this story, because it's too good to end like this!!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Unique Reading Experience!!!! January 30, 2014
Format:Paperback
Many Strange Women written by Parker J. Cole is filled with secrets and extreme imagination; which makes this book very unique from any other books that I have ever read. The author brings the characters to life with the twist and turns that this story takes, and as secrets are revealed you are treated with important life long messages and lessons that I hope you take head to.Once I started readinig Many Strange Women I did not to put it down: come to think of it I dont think I did put the book down. I cant wait for another Parker J. Cole book to hit the shelves.
