Sunday Christians by Jodaea

Title: Sunday Christians

Author: Jodaea

Headline: Don’t be Fooled

Rating: 3.5

Sunday Christians follows the story of Xavier Wilson. He is a successful, handsome entrepreneur that is searching for someone to share his life with. He has grown accustomed to having women throw themselves at him trying to become his wife, and one day he meets Phenice whom he knows will be his wife one day. And, while they have a whirlwind of a romance, it quickly becomes a nightmare for Xavier.

By the title of this book, one would assume that it is mainly about a Christian lifestyle, but it easily could be considered a secular book. The actions of some members of the church in this book will make you wonder why some even try to fool others by only being ‘Sunday Christians.’ Sunday Christians is the author’s first piece of published work and I do look forward to her second novel. This book is full of surprises and it is a quick read.

Love is All We’re After by Andrea’ Porter

Title: Love Is All We’re After

Author: Andrea’ Porter

Headline: Twists and Turns

Rating: 3.5

Andrea’ Porter’s novel, Love is All We’re After, is a solid debut from the author. It follows the lives of three women who have been friends since college, Candy, Mona, and Lisa. Each is at different points in their lives romantically and spiritually, but they will soon find out they are more intertwined than they knew.

This novel is advertised as Christian fiction and yes it does discuss religion, but  it does not ‘force’ it on you. There were quite a few spelling errors that should have been caught during the editing process. And, I personally thought, the storyline of Mikhail did not deserve their own chapters. He could have been mentioned as side notes within other chapters. Overall, it is a solid debut and a quick read.

The Flesh Sessions by Deouan Wilson

Title: The Flesh Sessions

Author: Deouan Wilson

Headline: Has Potential

Rating: 2.5

The Flesh Sessions is a story about Ryan whose “occupation” is seducing women. His “mark” is a young waitress named Shannon. Ryan thought this would be business as usual but it becomes complicated once he realizes that Shannon is his soul mate. Deouan Wilson attempts to tell a story about what challenges arise when Ryan is conflicted over following his job or following his heart.

This book has the potential to be a much better story but it has a very poor and underdeveloped storyline. The book’s editing errors caused a very major distraction while trying to read. Also, the first chapter was overwhelming in its sexual content that it made me not want to read the rest of the story. With some much needed revisions and the skillful eye of an editor, The Flesh Sessions could be a much better book.
