I was really looking forward to reading Married Strangers by Dwan Abrams. Id never read her work before, and I was interested in finding a new authors perspective on marital conflict. I did not expect to be turned off so badly in the first 10 pages that I didnt care to continue reading. As I read, my brain screamed TMI (too much information)! Rather than building the relationship of Rayna and Bryce or even describing the conflict in a tasteful way, the author concentrates the first few pages on these characters sexual incompatibility in more detail than I like to see in my Christian fiction. Its not that Im so sheltered that I dont know these issues exist, I actually have a degree in psychology and have no problem being involved in such topical discussions. Its just that an entertaining read isnt where I want my mind opened to these things.Maybe its timing. Maybe Ill decide to pick this book up again in the future. But for now, Ill find my entertainment elsewhere.
