A Prayer Series Book Review

I was given the chance to review the A Silent Prayerir?t=tidbitofexp 20&l=as2&o=1&a=1491720379 and A Prayer Heededir?t=tidbitofexp 20&l=as2&o=1&a=1491727160 in exchange for an honest blog review.

A Silent Prayer

From Amazon site:

Adam Gibson is a young and powerful Toronto millionaire. Despite his many blessings, he is an atheist, though he has an altruistic soul. He denies there is a God-until he meets a beautiful stranger in a place that does not exist for anyone but him.

Rania Ahmed strongly believes in God, but has lost hope she will ever find her soul mate. Endowed with hypnotic beauty and cursed by a brutal past, Rania has no idea she has cast a spell on Adam, who has never received more from a woman than physical pleasure. As Adam slowly discovers the true meaning of love from Rania, he begins to face his demons and reconsider his beliefs. He learns to love, forgive and repent. But as Adam grows closer to Rania, a series of strange, unexplained events threatens to drive them apart. To keep her from being destroyed by her past, he must persuade her to trust him with her deepest secrets.
 In this spiritual romance, an atheist embarks on a path of enlightenment with a tormented soul who may just have the power to change everything he has ever believed to be true.

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.

My Review

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?

I also have many hobbies including needlework (crochet), sewing, and reading. My son's education is important, so we homeschool him together.

  1. The synopsis sounds quite interesting, but like you, I don’t like long drawn books either. Therefore, this book probably wouldn’t hold my attention span for long. 🙁

    • I honestly believe it was more ME than the books. I just wasn’t in the mood for these kinds of books, but still had to get the review live.
