To begin with, upon seeing the picture of the stiletto on the cover, I downloaded the sample, believing I was going to settle down to an evening which included my delving into an extremely erotic read. My initial take was further strengthened when I read the synopsis; only slightly going off the grid of erotica when I read it included a preacher. Ok, I said to myself - preachers need love too. I determinedly kept to the course of continuing to read the story, and am so,very glad that I did. But I digress.
But before I proceed with my review, I would first like to set forth more information about my header. The teachings this scripture seeks to impart is that when you see a person in need and wish them to be warmed, but send them on their way without providing the thing that would aid in their physical turnaround, exactly what is it that that person gets from just your words? They profit that person nothing, therefore your uttered faith is dead because your works are not in Harmony with them.
Let me first state that never before have I never laughed so hard upon reading the first 3 chapters of a Christiian book. I had to immediately dump my cocktail and put on my pious Christian demeanor upon learning that this was not the erotica I first believed, but was, indeed, a tale meant to further my walk in the Christian life. But was I in for a pleasant surprise by the author's hilarious twist on the storyline. She had me laughing so hard, I couldn't help the tears of laughter which resulted from those gut wrenching he haws! Ok, I said to myself, maybe I can drop my pious face and drink that cocktail, while reading, after all. But again, I digress.
This beautiful romance begins with Jason getting a word from his Pastor that the position he was seeking, to be promoted to, within the church, may be out of reach due to his lack of people skills. Jason, literally taking these words to heart, decides to prove his pastor wrong and goes out on the streets of Tampa, Florida to save a prostitute and bring her back to his church to testify of the goodness of himself. The hilarious route he takes to bring Audrey, aka Jade, will have you becoming a card carrying member of Ms. Snowden's fan base; I certainly am. The beautiful manner in which this author introduces the scriptural context is genius. I have myself another author worthy of having her name spread throughout the literary community looking for a good, teaching, hilarious read.
Unfortunately, the laughter turns into severe pain, with the entrance of Audrey's narrative of her life story, along with her heart wrenching testimony. Said testimony that was paid in full via the righteousness of one Jason Goodman - ( said with tongue in cheek).
Download this book and get carried away on a cloud of humour, interspersed with a few dark clouds. I highly recommend this author for your reading pleasure.
Anyways to the author you are now on my list of authors to look for and I truly hope that you continue to write wonderful stories. And I would really really love to hear more about Audrey and Jason's story. I would like to know if her friend ever got better, did her dad find his way back into her life, her walk with Christ and her now fiance Jason. Please tell more of their story. . Keep the good stories rolling!!
I tried my best to keep from giving away the story so I will wrap this review up before I slip. Lol
If anyone is wondering if this book is worth the price, I promise that it is!!
