Book Review - Redeeming the Amazon by L.V. Lewis

STORYLINE:  It’s nine years after her double mastectomy, yet Karen Freeman has not had a romantic relationship with anyone. She decides to break her sexual drought by spending a weekend at the Beaudelaire Hotel, where she can enact all her fantasies.

Paul Beaudeliare, a Marine amputee and long-time friend and admirer, chooses Karen as his playmate for the weekend. Will he be able to convince her to take their encounter further than just a fun-filled interlude?

THE PLAYERS: Karen Freeman, an ex-model, looks as if she has it going on, but appearances are deceiving. Although self-sufficient and successful, Karen feels like less than a woman because of her physical limitations.

Paul Beaudeliare is considerate and determined. Having let Karen go years ago because of his sense of decency and honor, Paul doesn’t plan on losing her again.

I liked the concept for the story—people meeting in a place where they can lose their inhibitions and do what they like.

OVERALL COMMENTS: Redeeming the Amazon was an engaging read. Although the book has strong sexual content, the storyline is strong and there is an emotional connection between the main characters that is strengthened during their weekend encounter.

Paul’s resolve not to settle for anything less than a committed relationship made the story that much more interesting. I also liked their references to Greek mythology.

COVER NOTE: The model fits the image portrayed by the female lead and the cover complements the story.

    When men deny the truth found in the Scriptures; they are denying the words of God the Father. When men deny the truth spoken by Jesus; they are denying the words of God the Father. When men deny the doctrine of the apostles; they are denying the words of God the Father.

    All Scripture is the word of God the Father.

    2 Timothy 3:16 All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness,(NKJV)

    All that Jesus spoke was from God the Father.

    John 12:49-50 "For I have not spoken on My own authority; but the Father who sent Me gave Me a command, what I should say and what I should speak. 50 "And I know that His command is everlasting life. Therefore, whatever I speak, just as the Father has told Me, so I speak."(NKJV)

    All of the apostles doctrine was from God the Father. Why was that? Because Jesus taught the apostles and all of the words of Jesus were from God the Father.

    John 14:26 "But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you.(NKJV)

    John 16:13-14 "However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come. 14 "He will glorify Me, for He will take of what is Mine and declare it to you.

    All the teaching from the Holy Spirit came from Jesus and all the words of Jesus came from God the Father.

    There are no Scriptures that declare that church creed books, (catechisms) or any other extra-Biblical writings are that of God the Father. Remember; all Scripture is inspired by God. Creed books are not Scripture. No extra-Biblical writing is Scripture.


    1. When men claim there is more than one God; they are denying the words of God the Father.

    Ephesians 4:6 one God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.(NKJV)

    2. When men declare that Jesus did not say water baptism precedes salvation; they are denying the words of God the Father.

    Mark 16:16 "He who believes and is baptized will be saved...(NKJV)

    3. When men say that Christians cannot fall from grace; they denying the words of God the Father.

    Galatians 5:4 You have become estranged from Christ, you who attempt to be justified by law; you have fallen from grace.(NKJV)

    All Scripture is inspired by God the Father.


  5. I love reading books reviews, and this is very good. You know how to draw interest. I'll keep this book in mind, but since I bought 27 during the A to Z challenge, and two this morning, I'm going to wait a week. :-)


Share your thoughts. I love to hear what you think about the books I'm discussing.
