    This review was written for Old Fashioned.
    Clay Walsh has some 'old fashioned' ways in which he is viewing life. His past has not been anything he is proud of. He has lived with some 'unique' rules for his life for the past nine years trying in ways to make up for his past and not reliving it. When Amber Hewson blows into his life can he keep his standards and will he ever be good enough for her?

    Amber Hewson has learned how to run from her past for years. When Clay intrigues her can she finally find a place to call home, or does history have a way of repeating itself?

    Clay and Amber both have many lessons to learn. Most importantly forgiveness and God's love. This novel deals with many 'worldly' views and those who many or may not agree with you and your ideas.

    I was given a copy of this novel by bookfun.org for my honest opinion.

    This review was written for Old Fashioned.
    Old Fashioned is a story of timeless love where romance is worth more than physical attraction. Rene Gutteridge brings to life a beautiful tale of new love birthed through old fashioned methods.

    I absolutely loved Clay Walsh. Hes a man with past regrets from his youthful days who longs to right so many wrongs by doing a complete 360 degree turn. Clay seeks to honor the woman he wants to marry and show her the utmost respect. Although he dives deep into the biblical laws as he desperately tries to be a real gentleman, Clay swings on the pendulum of extremes from frat naughty boy to square stress boy. Along the way, hes forgotten the one thing that changed his life completely: the love of Christ.

    Amber Hewson is a young woman with a heart that has never truly healed and remains slightly broken from her own past. When things got tough for her in the past, she would pick up and move on, but she finds that the physical relocation is only geography and strangely, she has lost the desire to do it. She is fascinated by Clay, who she lovingly refers to as stress boy and is intrigued by his strange way of courting.

    Clay must sort through serving God with his life and not just trying to be perfect. His personal convictions have cost him friendships, status and a career but hes pleased to be transformed. The only confusion in his life is his desire for Amber.

    In a time when the world is mesmerized by the disillusioned idea in books like 50 Shades of Grey, Old Fashioned is the perfect response. It takes the reader back to a time when women were ladies and gentlemen were truly gentlemen. It demonstrates the beautiful way that courting developed beyond a one night stand and test driving another human being to see if they are compatible. Old Fashioned is a delightful story that reminds us that the old ways arent always wrong and the newest trends arent the best.

    Its a book that I would recommend to young and old alike as an example of a love story; it is very well done in every way.

    I received this book from the Book Club Network and Tyndale Publishing House in exchange for my honest opinion which Ive provided here.

    Old Fashioned

    Novelization by Rene Gutteridge

    Screenplay by Rik Swartzwelder

    Chivalry makes a comeback

    Clay Walsh has made a vow to be a changed man. He no longer wants to be the man that he was, even if it means isolating himself away. He wants to treat women with the respect they deserve. Clay's ideals are the source of ridicule in the town in which he lives. His theories on love and romance are odd and outdated, but he has been living by them for nine years. He has yet to meet the woman who understands his views.

    But when Amber Hewson arrives in town his theories are about to be tested. Something about Amber draws him and terrifies him at the same time. Amber senses something about Clay is different though she's not sure what it is exactly. But when her apartment needs a repair she learns quickly what about Clay is different - he won't do the needed repair and be alone with her in the apartment. His "rules" confuse and intrigue her, but how do you get to know another person when you don't know the rules?

    This is a book that I highly recommend - the values Clay lives by are in fact ones that I was taught from a young age and men and women who live by these standards are hard to find today. Pressure to conform to the lax morals of today comes from all sides and it is hard to stand for what one believes as evidenced by the ridicule Clay faces (even from friends).

    I think my favorite line comes from Betty - "You know, marriage is kind of like a tea bag. You don't know how strong it really is till you get it in some boiling water. And the water don't boil till you're over the heat, and the heat don't come till you say, 'I do.'"

    I was provided a copy of this book by the publisher Tyndale through TBCN/BookFun in exchange for my honest review.

    This review was written for Old Fashioned.
    Clay Walsh was a "player" bad boy in college and at his Frat House. When he decides he has to change he goes to the "uptight, straitlaced" old fashion gentleman. Amber Hewson is right the opposite. She is fun loving, quirky and free-spirited as Clay is uptight. How these two interact with one another is entertaining in and of itself. Where he takes her on their first date has her laughing out loud. His aunt turned her antique store over to him and he rented the upstairs apartment to Amber. Suddenly there are so many things wrong with the appliances, screen door, etc. This is a feel-good book and it will have you grinning with their antics.

    Although, Clay claims to be a Christian somewhere he got things confused. Its not about how you live your life but how you give yourself to God's grace and mercy. When Amber finds out what God is about she is thrilled. Both have to learn to turn their lives over to God. Still smiling thinking about their antics.

    I received this book through www.bookfun.org and the authors. All I was asked was to leave an honest opinion and all opinions are my own.

    5 stars ***** out of five

    This novel has so many levels, and yet each one is fabulously portrayed. The first and most obvious is that of a young man who has turned from a life of partying to one of legalistic, self imposed goodness. The heroine who, though not a party girl, still views life as an adventure, while running away from life. How these two come together, bringing all the baggage of their lives with them, was fascinating. Sometimes I think that if we could work or at least do something to earn our salvation, we would, and often we do try. But in the end the only thing that "works" is for us to accept the Gift. And accepting the Gift is an adventure. A new gift, a new adventure each day! What an amazing novel, and one I recommend to my followers and readers!

    Thank you to Fred and Cheri at The Book Club Network, Rene Gutteridge and Rik Swartzwelder, and Tyndale Fiction for the opportunity to read this novel. I received this book free in exchange for an honest review. A positive critique was not required. The opinions are my own.
