Book 3 of The Jamieson Legacy: Free From Guilt by Pat Simmons
The two-degreed MIT graduate thinks he’s in need of nothing. He’s satisfied with his career, social calendar, and good genes. But God sends a beautiful messenger by the name of Gabrielle Dupree to show him that he’s in a spiritual deficit. Cameron struggles with the notion that the wisdom of man is like foolishness to God. For every philosophical argument he throws her way, Gabrielle is equipped to sway him with scriptures that make him question his worldly knowledge.
A tenth generation descendant of a royal African tribe, Cameron is accustomed to being part of a close-knit family. But one by one, Cameron witnesses each of his older brothers and cousins’ girlfriends, who eventually become their wives, lead them down a path of Godly repentance and righteous living. Cameron is absolutely determined not to go down without a fight, even if Gabrielle is unquestionably the most desirous and beautiful woman he’s ever met. She can match him wit for wit. And there’s one more thing. His heart won’t let her get away.

The first book started with Cameron meeting the Jamison cousins in NY. With this book we are introduced to a lot more of the family...some distantly related and some half siblings.
This story is Cameron's and his desire to be with Gabrielle. She is attracted to Cameron, but she lets him know in no uncertain terms that for her "Jesus is the ONLY way".
Both come from such strong and loving families. You feel the pull that God has actually placed Gabrielle there to help bring Cameron to him. Satan doesn't like letting go, and puts people and worldly things in the way.
What a tremendous story Pat Simmons has written. I so enjoyed this book and felt the kinship with this family. Once I began my journey I could not put this book down, and finished in less than a day.
I received a copy of this book from the Author, and was not required to give a positive review.
