- From Frat Man to Old Fashioned... by Babbling Becky L on 1/25/2015
What causes Clay,a young man who has a raunchy past, to turn his back on that past and to live by a totally unusual set of rules regarding women? What hurt has caused Amber to feel like she is unlovable and unable to hold a man's attention permanently? Amber is impulsive, Clay is very strict. Can these two acknowledge their growing attraction and make it work, or will their great differences keep them apart?
Some parts of this story made me uncomfortable. However, the underlying theme that God can overcome our pasts and people's differences and fears surpasses my discomfort. I am reminded that our God is a God of mercy and grace and second chances. This story beautifully illustrates that point.
I would recommend this book for mature readers, including older teens as appropriate. I received this book from bookfun.org in exchange for an honest review.
