Reviews - What do customers think about She's Out of Control (Ashley Stockingdale Series #2)?
Waste... Aug 4, 2008
I commented on the first book of this series. I hoped this one might be better, but, alas, I am still disappointed with this author.
Slight improvement over Ashley book 1... Feb 7, 2008
I already posted a review of "What a Girl Wants" that covers most of my concerns about these books. This book was actually not too horibble and I probably enjoyed it more than the other two in the series. There were some funny parts to this book. I even felt bad when (SPOILER) Ashely got a dog instead of an engagement ring. Knowing engineers, I was not entirely happy with how they came off in this book or the other two. I wish that Ashley was not as "modern" and obsessed with expensive clothes and jewelry as she is. That would make her much more likable. Plus, really, what Christian girl in her right mind turns down a guy like Dr. Kevin? Really? None. This is the best book of the Ashley books, but not a good book.
I am a single, successful, intelligent, Christian woman and I should have liked this book, but I could not have been more disappointed (unless you count books 1 and 3 or this series). Please read books by Trish Perry, Erynn Mangum (SO GOOD!), Denise Hildreth, Noah's Ark by Judy Baer, Rachel Hauck and Dee Henderson instead.
Christian Chick Lit is the BEST! Jul 21, 2007
This Ashley Stockingdale novel was the beginning of my new found love with Christian Chick Lit. Be forewarned that if you begin this book you will not only not be able to put this particular book down, but you will forever be addicted to Christian Chick Lit. Kristin Billerbeck is such a wonderful author and I absolutely can not wait for her to write another book. It seems as if her pen doesn't move as fast as I wish it did! :) I am a college student and these books were such an encouragement in my dating and even personal relationship with God. This is a must read, as well as the rest of Billerbeck's books.
Unreadable Christian Chick Lit Apr 24, 2007
Let me preface by saying I bought this book cheap in a bookstore. I am a fan of "chick lit" and this seemed to fit the bill. I had no idea from the cover or liner notes that this book was going to mention God and Christianity in every paragraph, along with the implication that if you're not "in" on both, you're just a bad person.
Don't get me wrong... I have no issue with Christians, but I do have issues with self-obsessed, self-righteous characters thinking God has absolutely nothing better to do than answer their inane prayers about nothing. There is no message in this book apart from God seems to sit around all day, letting the third world starve, while He grants the wishes of girls pining over boys. Ridiculous. Badly written, whiny and plain stupid. Some Christians need to re-prioritize, and this author definitely needs to have a good think about what life is really all about.
A wonderful read! Apr 10, 2007
This little jewel of a book is the follow-up to "What A Girl Wants", the continuing adventures of Ashley Stockingdale as she deals with the men in her life, a new job, and her best friend's growing family. You'll love the characters and will appreciate the storyline which really shows Ashley's growth through this new stage in her life. The spiritual side of the book is skillfully woven through the book and is in no way heavey-handed; it's simply a part of Ashley's life and the reason for her growth and the ultimate happiness as she seeks to find steady ground and her place in the world. This book is a keeper!
