3-Star Review of "Seeds"

Review of Seeds

by Wendy Stenzel Oleston

Temptation is a battle of the flesh... 
In SEEDS you will meet a dirty, sexy mechanic with passion… a stand-up family man with faith… a handsome business man with plenty of money… and a cute, shy programmer with a loving heart. Which one would you choose? Don’t be too quick! One of them has a sex addiction, one thinks he might be gay, one has no respect for women and the other… loves pornography more than himself. 
Sexual sin is a battle for everyone, but what would you do if you were faced with a make or break moment that was bound to change everything? Would you try half-heartedly, would you ignore it, would you follow the crowd, or would you do whatever it took to succeed? Only one of them will get it right… but don’t worry… everyone gets a second chance. 
This book will make you swoon, scream, smile, shake your head, and swoon again. Come meet Cory, Blaine, Holden, and Lawrence and pick your favorite. 

SEEDS contains strong language and sexual content, representing the reality of the world we live in, while maintaining a moral Christian backbone.   


MY REVIEW:   Sex,  pornagrapy, gays, and behind it all is a desire of the person with these issues to turn away from it.  This book is well written, but I'll be honest.   I have never read a "Christian" book that is filled with graphic sexual content and I think it could have been written without such extreme examples of sexual activity. The language is bad also.  One man is addicted to pornagraphy, one is addicted to sex, and one is fighting the urge to express his attraction to the same sex.
      I don't exactly know how to say this, but I would recommend this book only to a certain audience. Many of my friends who read and review Christian novels will never pick it up.  Then there are others who will gladly read it.  The sexual content and strong language will keep some readers from picking it up and non-believers to God will be turned off by the Christian references and put it down.  I frankly never imagined anything to the degree expressed in the book and I think the sexual scenes and the language could have been toned down in a Christian novel.   
       I rated this book 3 stars.   I would only recommend it to readers who are not easily offended by strong language and sexual content.  Many readers have high morals and high morals and these make them choose not to read this type of book. My Christian friends and social media groups have stated this many times, both publicly and privately.
       I received a copy of this book from netgalley in exchange for my honest review.   All opinions expressaed are my own.
