It's nice to have a book that talks about love and sexual intimacy in connection with scripture and to see Song of Solomon discussed literally rather than as a metaphor for people's relationship to the church (which always seemed like reaching, in my opinion). For cis-gendered, heterosexual couples this is a great resource if you and your partner want to grow closer while learning about marriage through the lens of traditional Christianity. Those outside those definitions will not find this to be helpful and may feel excluded. Overall, a good book for its intended audience.

I have read a few of Sharon Jayne's books before and was looking forward to reading this one since it has been showing up on my social media feed quite a bit. A study of the Song of Solomon in relation to marriage. Eleven chapters of goodness.
There are so many great quotes throughout this book to really take to heart and ponder. This book is great for the engaged to start off on good footing. I would also suggest this book for single adults because as the author says "The problem is not that our culture focuses on sex too much but that it values sex so little." Even singles need to start having a good head and heart value for sex and marriage.

Trusted speaker and author Sharon Jaynes provides women with a great resource on sexual intimacy in marriage in her new book, Lovestruck, published by Thomas Nelson.  Jaynes takes readers on a journey through Song of Solomon, showing them God’s original design for marriage and sexual intimacy, and readers just might be surprised by what they’ll find.  This timely book provides a biblical viewpoint when so many mistaken worldly views try to lure people away from God’s original design—for loving, intimate and hot sex within the marriage of one man and one woman for life.  Jaynes shows how marriage is God’s idea—beginning with the marriage of Adam and Eve in Genesis and ending with the marriage supper of the Lamb in Revelation.  She also points out that Jesus’ first miracle took place at a wedding.  Not only that, but marriage is a picture of Christ and the church.  Jaynes rightly says, “When we understand the weighty worth and sacred significance of sex, we treasure and enjoy it even more.  I highly recommend this book for anyone who dares to take their marriage more seriously, who dares to take God at HIs Word, and who dares to have a more exciting sex life within their marriage.  Lovestruck will not disappoint, and it will make a great resource whether you’re newly married or you’ve been married a long time.

Note: I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for this honest review.  However, the opinions expressed are entirely my own.
