My review of Refiner's Fire by Dayo Benson

About the book:

Lexi Dixon has pretty much reached the dizzy heights of superstardom, but certain things come with the territory; things that she never anticipated. Like the fact that one of her friends has stabbed her in the back and sold the gory details of her life story to a tabloid.

Just when Lexi thought that things couldn’t possibly get any worse, an unfortunate incident in New York forces her off the red carpet and into God’s refinery for a season—just when she really shouldn’t be taking a break!

A forced vacation means that Lexi has ample time on her hands to consider her life. She knows what she wants, but how far is she willing to go to get it? Does her career have to be mutually exclusive of her relationship with God? Does she have to settle for friendship with the man that turns her knees to Jell-O? Lexi has survived plastic surgery gone wrong, and even a kidnapping. But, matters of the heart are a whole different ball game!

Lexi decides that there’s only so much a girl can take. She doesn’t have time for love anyway. However, as things spiral out of control, she soon realizes that her heart got stolen long before she even started trying to protect it.

My review:

Finished the book and loved the satisfying conclusion, though it took the heroine a long time to get there. This entire series had enough twists and turns to make a reader dizzy, but there were a few constants as well. All in all I loved the transformation of Lexi into who she became at the end of the series. The author did a great job showing her being slowly transformed and maturing in her faith. It was very realistically portrayed as most new believers are a bit slow at learning some lessons. This story could be read as a stand alone but would be best enjoyed by reading the books in order so the details that led Lexi to her final decision can be fully experienced and savored. I would read more books by this author.
