There isn’t a woman who from time to time doesn’t want to return some spice to their relationship with their dear OH [other half] that they once had prior to and shortly after they’d said their I Dos.
But having a family and becoming more religious there’s a strong desire to keep everything clean and without even a glimmer of being perverted like it once might have been. Sex is in the minds of those participating in it and as the author uses her character, Phoebe to say, “I know God created sex for marriage. And not just for beautiful people, either. Sex is supposed to bind a man and wife; to give them an intimacy they share with no one else. Sex is supposed to be fulfilling. And fun! I think we’re supposed to want to have sex with our spouse.”
There needs to be a happy midpoint where one can go to fulfill our lustful desires, while being sexually anxious in terms of our actions in the eyes of our maker; remembering we’ve also got a standing to maintain to in the eyes of our children, and those in our community. But where are we to find such guidance. Phoebe finds her guidance in the form of a book we’ve all heard of “Fifty Shades of Grey.”
Even though this book is a work of fiction, it’s interesting to read how Phoebe goes about using this book in the relationship she shares with her husband George.
But given the author’s background as a pastor and working in the ministry for over thirty years, one has to wonder whether we can use the same ideas and techniques Phoebe had used on George, in our own real lives. We need to remember some of the best religious messages are sometimes best communicated through works of fiction, and a good example of this I believe would be Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol.”
For having given her readers a clean romance novel with much to dwell upon in our own lives, I’m giving the author, Rebecca Reilly and this book 5 STARS.
