Opportunity Knocks Twice

Wednesday, November 27, 2013
Her eyes were closed, the lids beautiful, translucent and glowing in the soft light. Then she opened them slowly, gazed at him, and they leaned into another kiss, this time longer and sweeter, promising more to come. Then she nuzzled her face into his neck, and he squeezed her tighter against him, wanting nothing else, wanting to be nowhere else in light than right here, right now. “How can I resist this? And why would I want to?”

Book: Opportunity Knocks Twice (Brio Girls) by Lissa Halls Johnson, Focus On The Family Publishing/Tyndale House Publishers, 2002

Genre: Realistic Fiction
Target Audience: Girls 13-21
Subjects: Sex, Attraction, Dating Relationships, Friendship
Summary: Two hot girls – how’s a guy supposed to pick? Jessica’s got the body, man does she have the body! And she’s easy. She’ll give a guy the touches, the physical stuff. But Hannah? There’s just something about her… she’s hot too, but she says she won’t date. Won’t even accept a ride home from school! But what’s inside shines through so brightly Tyler can’t help but be seriously attracted to it. His group of female friends since elementary school and his mom really hesitate to see Tyler get all caught up in Jessica again, but they’ve never liked her. Tyler knows she has some good qualities the girls can’t see. But is the correct question really which girl should he date? Or maybe the question is a bit more complex than that… Tyler had better figure it out soon or he’s going to have not just two, but six females mad at him!
Notes: This book is the third one in the Brio Girls series, a series put out by Focus On The Family about five friends as they go through their last two years of highschool. Each book boldly addresses a major question that Christians might ask about faith and following God. These books don’t make light of the struggles or give pat answers. It shows very realistic characters wrestling with God. I highly recommend all of the book in this series! This book deals with not just the issue of dating, but overall attraction and how a godly guy should treat a girl. Tyler is a very normal teenage boy with all the attraction to girls that comes with it. He dreams of going far physically with hot girls. But his faith calls him to a higher standard. He has to figure out what it means to be a godly guy and how to treat the girls he likes.
Recommendation Scale: 5/5

2 Timothy 2:22 – Flee the evil desires of youth, and pursue righteousness, faith, love and peace, along with those who call on the Lord out of a pure heart.
