Ms Adams uses bible verses as well as her personal experiences to get her point across.
I borrowed this book from a girlfriend and I'm glad I didn't buy it.

What I love most about this book is in Chapter 5 where you give powerful, pratical steps to overcome sexual temptations. In my struggle for many years as a single woman, I have searched but never have found such a profund book like this one that is direct, candid and uplifting as this one. For a taboo subject on sex, many never even scractch the surface, but you have really hit the head of the nail! I highly recommend this book, it's a must to anyone who have a struggle or addiction to sex. It will both inspire and educate you and give you the strength and the willpower to uphold the Word of God. It will leave you with the attitude of accomplishment and inner peace. It will truly bring joy to your life, knowing that the joys of sex can be wonderfully explored in the santity of marriage. Don't prolong your suffering, get this book TODAY!

I read this book last year...I was attracted (and put to shame) by the cover. It was real to me...not the fact that the man and woman are partially bare but I noticed the looks on their faces that said, 'we're guilty, we've done it again and how are we going to stop it'. Things that I thought over and over again when I was "caught up". This book made me confront my sin, confess it to God and it sent me on the road to giving it up. Ms. Adams talks candidly about forgiveness and mercy. Just because you're forgiven doesn't mean that you will not face the consequences of your actions. That's what became real to me, we do these things over and over always forgetting about the what the results will be (more emotional baggage, pregnancy, STDs)...that's what the book made me think about. It took a few months after reading the book to get it right but I've finally got the point. These kind of books help us to heal, they offer remedies...Ms. Adams' book is definitely a good remedy but God is the source for the cure. Way to Go Ms. Adams!

I bought this book because the title caught my eye and I thought that it would have practical information for guarding against lust. However, the books tells you that you should abandon anything sinful. Though I agree with this point, I think that it negates the human element.

I guess that I was looking for more practical advice from the standpoint of a Christian couple. This book only offers advice for someone who is completely single, not dating someone.

I agree with the author's view of casual dating. I think that the disposable attitude toward relationships is probably a factor in the divorce rate, even among those who go to church.

It wasn't until about page 100 that I started getting into things that would be useful in my life.

There are some good things in this book, most importantly, the forgiveness of God and His mercy.

-be honest with where you're at

-know your weakness

If you aren't familiar with "The Message" by Eugene Peterson, some of the Bible verses will not make much sense. The verses are not labeled within the text, so you have to flip to the end of the chapter if you wish to look them up.

I tried hard through out this book to gauge who the audience was. I wasn't sure. From the language used, I would guess that the author is gearing the book toward African Americans, but I wasn't sure of the age group. Some of the passages in the book are mature and others are juvenile.

The editoral errors in this book were almost overbearing. I felt like someone should really check out the grammatical errors, and the editor should definitely be fired.

I'm sorry to those of you who could not see the value of this book. I honestly do believe that this book was not written for you. At the point when I discovered this book I was in a serious struggle and Ty was able to touch me in a special way. Everybody recieves there blessings in different ways and I feel that this book can minister to a lot of single and saved young adults who do contiue to have sex or partake in sexual activities with no regards to the "commitment" they have made to God. The fact of the matter is that when you kiss or do any of the other things that she talks about people do in relationships, it can easily lead to sex. The book really tried to get people to think about those things before they do them and not in the heat of the moment or afterwards. I felt that she was trying to get people to understand that you can't ask yourself later how you ended up having sex if you continue to do those things which lead to sex...of course she is not in everyones situation and was mainly speaking from her experiences, but she stated that she was going to speak from her experiences in the beginning of the book. I think that if you are really struggling with this problem and are look for a book to motivate you to change your ways and seriously commit yourself to God...then this book does that and more. As far as the grammer issues...if you had time to notice that...then you really missed the point of the book. God obviously spoke to her heart to write this book knowing that it would touch someone...and the only way you will know if that person is you, is by reading the book.
