Old Fashioned Novel And Devotional Review + Prize Pack #Giveaway 7/10 US/CAN #OLDFASHIONEDMOVIE #FLYBY

A few weeks back, I wrote a review for the Old Fashioned movie and said that I will be doing a giveaway for a prize pack which includes the Old Fashioned DVD, Old Fashioned Novel and the Old Fashioned Devotional. Well, I'm excited to share with you my review of the Old Fashioned Novel and Old Fashioned Devotional and read on below to enter the giveaway! :) You can also read my review of the Old Fashioned movie HERE.
About the devotional:
Softcover; 222 pages 

Contrary to popular opinion, being "old fashioned" doesn't mean you're dull or unromantic.  In fact, a true old fashioned relationship can be more exciting and romantic than anything you've ever experienced!  So what does it mean to do things the old fashioned way?  Sure, it means opening doors, holding out chairs, and taking things slow.  But a true old fashioned romance goes much, much deeper than that.  Inspired by the motion picture Old Fashioned, this book will show you how to reclaim the lost art of romance by introducing you to romantic love as God intended it.  Regardless of your past mistakes, where you've been, what you've done, or where you are now, you can find and create a love that will last a lifetime!  As you work your way through this forty-day journey of inspiring readings and questions for reflection, you'll discover all the unique and amazing benefits of doing things the old fashioned way.  And before you know it, you'll be well on your way to creating a love story for the ages. 
About the novelization:  
Softcover; 303 pages 

Turning his back on his reckless lifestyle, former frat boy Clay Walsh has settled down to turn an antique shop in a small Midwestern college town....and to purse lofty and outdated theories on love and romance.  But when Amber Hewson, a free-spirited woman with a gypsy soul, rents the apartment above his shop, Clay can't help being attracted to her spontaneous and passionate embrace of life.  Amber also finds herself surprisingly drawn to Clay, but his ideas about relationships are unusual to say the least, and they bring to light her own deep wounds and fears about love.  They say opposites attract, but can Clay and Amber move beyond their differences and their pasts to attempt an "old fashioned" courtship?

The Old Fashioned Novel is a great read for all singles as well as married people because it has a nice, clean, romantic story which for me is really nice. This novel was set in modern times but depicts an old fashioned way of dating. The characters are really likeable and I like how innocent this novel is and yet, it teaches lots of things which includes forgiveness both for others and for ones self, redemption and true love.

Clay Walsh has done something in the past that made him change his whole views about dating and relationships. When Amber Hewson arrived in their town and rented the room above his shop, he was attracted to her instantly but Amber's views are a bit different. She also has been hurt in the past but that didn't stop her from expressing her feelings more vocally as compared to Clay. I love how they resolved their differences in such a mature way and even though this is a clean and innocent love story, it still brought butterflies to my stomach.

The Old Fashioned Devotional is a great read and although I'm already married, I had fun reading it with hubby. It is a 40-day reflection/journal which is a nice read specially to people who are single. The journal is a bit old fashioned, and many would not agree with it but I think it's a nice read to widen one's knowledge and views on certain things. At the end of each daily journal, there is a reflection part where I can answer questions about dating and relationships and truly reflect on what I feel inside. I also like the short prayer at the end of each daily journal.
