A Silent Prayer

A Prayer Heeded
From Amazon site:
Adam Gibson is a multimillionaire who is not searching for God–or demons–when he finds love with a beautiful woman. Unfortunately, Rania, the one who has captured his heart, has a tormented past. Adam is unaware of his powers, how God makes sure his each prayer is heeded due to his virtue of charity. Adam knows Rania is still the answer to all his silent prayers. But now only time will tell if her soul is destined to be his once again.
Rania Ahmed is dead inside. Adam, the man she mistakenly considered to be her soul mate, has crushed her soul into millions of pieces. Due to her broken past, she still believes her curse will keep her from loving ever again. What she does not know is that Adam has made a promise to himself to never give up on her–no matter what. But Adam does not know what he is getting himself into.
These books truly did not appeal to me. I honestly think it was solely because of the long drawn out opening to them. However, I will say that when you read the reviews on Amazon it honestly makes me wonder what is wrong with ME that I didn’t find them interesting. I honestly wonder if the fact that I was trying to read them before my deadline made it next to impossible for me to be able to really enjoy reading these books.
These books made me have to force an image into my head. I generally don’t like having to do that. I want the author to take me off into another place and time. I don’t want to have to work to do it. I think that’s what really caused me to not like these books. It wasn’t because the concept behind the stories was wrong. They actually had a great story line and characters. I love the idea of a Christian form of Fifty Shades of Grey. After all, Del is controlling of me, and I LOVE it. He doesn’t take it to extremes though, and when he starts to do it I quickly remind him that I’m my own person. He will back off. We both have a controlling, possessive, and intense personality.
I honestly put my lack of interest in these books more on me than on the author. I just wanted a lazy read. (I think fellow readers will understand what I was/am in the mood for right now.)
Have you read them? What do you think of them?
