Shannon Ethridge has brought a text to readers that is a direct combat to the 50 Shades of Grey series. Shannon is no stranger to the fantasy world and if you choose to read her new title, you can read more into her story at the end of the book.
However, the author does go into detail about what is behind the mask of the fantasy world. First of all, she writes from a perspective that is Christ-Centered. As a believer, she pleads with readers more than once to become found by Christ and to become satisfied through a relationship with Jesus. This is a clear stance, seen from cover to cover.
A few of the issues that Ethridge addresses are fantasies thought-out, fantasies subsided, and fantasies fulfilled. All of these are within the context of male – female fantasies, male-male fantasies, female-female fantasies and some regard married couples. The truth is, there is a fantasy world that is dwindling in the minds & hearts of men and women. The author brings many of these to light with her own story, and the stories (names disclosed) of numerous others. The stories expose the truth about fantasies, and how they can be damaging to the soul, if unspoken of, unaddressed and ignored.
In one chapter, the author exposes the unreal facts about pornography. But not so much the facts about the damage it does to a person, but the facts about the life of a porn-star. It is a chapter that will shake your soul. What an abomination to human beings, that industry is.
This reader would venture to say that you will see more similar titles from this author in the future. She has written on the subject before in, “Every Woman’s Battle”. The author is passionate about life and the collision of life with God’s Word, so that lives are changed and hearts are mended with their creator and with one another.
