A beautiful change through faith

Max was not very likeable at first. He was a very irredeemable womanizer. A major event happened that had him changing is lifestyle for the better. Peyton, Alyssa, and Ellen was exactly what he needed. Alyssa at times was frustrating in that she doesn't practice what she preached. But that just makes the story more realistic. I enjoyed listening to Max and Alyssa finding each other and falling in love. Dealing with loss, forming a relationship with God and reconnecting with family. The narration was ok. I could differentiate between male and female voices but the inflections was off. Most of her sentences run together and leaves me with an out of breath feeling. I was given this audiobook in exchange for an honest review.

Great Christian Fiction Read.

This is a great Christian fiction read. Playboy Max is going through life just pleasing himself and then one of his ex's comes to his door with his daughter and she is dying. So Max has to change his wicked ways and raise his beautiful daughter with ex's best friend Alyssa. Max sees God in Alyssa's life and God changes his heart and mind. I would love for this story to be longer but I enjoyed it so much. Having the author read it was an added bonus.

You won’t want to Stop listening!!

This was my first book/audible from Lorana Hoopes. I was pleasantly surprised okay more than that I could put it down. I listened to it on audible and it went everywhere with me. This story is about Max he goes through woman like candy. He has a new flavor for every week or month. He is very selfish. He wants both to do with having Christ apart of his life.

When Sara shows up with a daughter he didn’t know he had. She also is sick and dying. She left 3 years earlier when she found she was pregnant with out telling him. She was afraid of how he would react to the news. Let just say He is not very thrilled that he is going to have to change his ways. Payton is such a cute 3 year old that softens and melts Max heart.

This story is very heart warming. It show how things in our life change and mold us to make us better people. Even when it’s not what we are not expecting. It also reminds us how important a Christ centered life is.

Lorana Hoopes does a great Job Narrating!
*This review is my honest opinion*

The hard truth

A very real story that does not sugarcoat the reality of trying to fulfill an emptiness in ones life with partying and one night stands. Until your life turns drastically and you start to do the right thing with the right people and letting God be the ruler of your life not yourself will you truly be happy. I received a complimentary audio and I am voluntarily reviewing.

Sweet

The Billionaire’s Secret is a sweet, clean, Christian book with a storyline that addresses the way many non-believing (and believers that have strayed)young people live their lives. It isn’t a hopeless life though because Jesus can take anything and make it beautiful. This book emphasizes the power of prayer in a wonderful storyline. The author did a great job narrating her book.

180 degree change

Max was the ultimate player leaving behind hurt and disappointed women. Until he found he had a daughter from the one woman he had ever loved. But she was extremely ill and dying from cancer. She needed him to watch his daughter while she did one last ditch treatment. She left a best friend to help him and Alyssa was totally different than the women he had been associating with. There is lots of one step forward two steps back as Max realized he wasn’t happy with his former life. Even though difficult issues are dealt with this is a clean book with redemption in the end.

A nice romantic story

Quite a nice story although it glossed too breezily over serious issues e.g a dying mother handing over her child to someone forever as if she was just giving them a piece of luggage, a 3 year girl losing her mother and being ok with it because Jesus talked to her in a dream and was going to send her a new mommy. Plz.
I appreciate the Christian sentiment but I prefer a healthy dose of realism at the same time.

I voluntarily reviewed a review copy.

A playboy billionaire clean, Christian romance

A story of a billionaire playboy who discovers one night that he is the father of a 3 year old little girl, who needs him as her mother is dying.

He discovers not only the love of an am amazing woman named Alyssa, who is his daughters stand in aunt, it also comes to understand Gods purpose in his life and with his help and guidance he starts to change his playboy ways, to be the father his daughter needs but to also gain the love and approval of the woman he has fallen in love with.

All is not plain sailing, as you would hope not. Life is not that easy, as he soon discovers.

This book was written well, not to make light of his situation and gloss over it, but to also show that we can’t run away from our mistakes forever, that they will come back and bite us in the butt. But in so saying this, the authors also gives the reader hope that we are not all lost souls, that there is redemption for all of us, if we turn to God for help.

I received this as a complimentary copy and I am giving my honest review voluntarily
