Amazing book. I couldn't put it down. The author captivated me with his edge-of-your-seat suspense and observations about life and people. Can't wait to hear more from David Winters

It was o.k. The plot was good. The characters were interesting. It just took me a while to read. I really didn't get into all the descriptive parts about being an UBER driver. It just kind of droned on and on. I thought it was interesting however... when I was collecting links to the various retail sites one site didn't have the cover photo but it did have 3 reviews. I clicked on them to read to make sure I had the right book. One review described Driver Confessional as a man's book. Hmm. Maybe that's why it just didn't 'click' with me. My man wouldn't be interested. This opinion surprised me because the book is very 'in your face' when it comes to sharing about God. That's not a negative but it became a little much even for me. I liked the premise that Antonio took everyday situations and looked for opportunities to share his faith with people he ran across. Which is what we all should do. I just felt it was a little much. This is not a book that a non believer would enjoy. A seeker might possibly be interested. A mature believer may or may not enjoy. For me this was an o.k. book. I received a complimentary copy from Litfuse.

I must be honest and say that when I chose to review this book, I wasn't exactly sure if I would like it. I mean, I'm eclectic reader when it comes to Christian books....contemporary, thriller, suspense, historical, chick lit. You name, I'll try it. However, I just wasn't sure with this one. But, when I sat down to read it, I was quite surprised at the intensity of the story and the way it pulled me in! An up and down, in and out, twisty thrill ride that I won't soon forget!   David Winters takes his readers on a whirlwind ride (quite literally, since the main character, Antonio, is a Buber driver!) and delivers us to a spot that will leave us wondering what just happened and how can we get more of it. His characters are complex and well rounded, perfect for their roles in the book. This book really had me thinking about what kinds of things really do get talked about in a taxi cab or paid driver. I can't imagine it's easy to feel safe all the time!  I  really liked Antonio and getting to know him. Mr. Winters made Antonio's character superbly unique and God really shined through him. One rider's confession makes Antonio's story fast paced and edge of your seat reading! Each page was something new to Antonio's story and really had me gripping my seat!  I definitely recommend this thrill ride to all! It's the first in a new series by a truly talented author and I am so glad that I took the chance on this interesting new read. It's 4 star worthy and I am looking forward to picking up book 2!  *I received a complimentary copy of this book from LitFuse Bloggers and was under no obligation to post a review, positive or negative.*

Driver Confessional is an interesting read as the reader steps into the day and life of a ride-share driver. I honestly did not know much about this service, apart from what I heard on the news or saw on TV. What an interesting job and yes, I can imagine all the unusual and interesting, even scary people and incidents that could take place. We ride around the D.C. area with Antonio, a loving husband and father, who is trying to make extra money for his family as he attends law school. Their lives are very busy, filled with love and a heartache, but they are making it the best they know how with a strong faith in God. I thought it interesting how Antonio became a missionary driver, seeking God when hurting people stepped into his car. I also appreciated that he was not a perfect man and also had to ask forgiveness for a short temper especially dealing with traffic but also with some customers who think they know everything. We are also dealing with politics and shady characters as Antonio picks up a certain passenger one night who unbeknownst to them all, has information that sets off a firestorm of violence and rocks Antonio and his little family including his brother Rocco who is a cop. This was a quick read and again an interesting look at the life of a ride-share rider. Throw in some action adventure and hang on for the ride. I received a copy of this book for free through Litfuse Publicity. I was not required to post a positive review and the views and opinions expressed are my own.

This book is a very quick read, two hundred pages, and a lot of action is packed in these pages, including some murders. The premise of the story has a lot going for it, and the danger seems very real, and the author has done a great job of bringing the word of God to each who will listen. This is a very Christian book, and yes I loved how this aspect was woven into the story, but at times I wondered if this would really happen in real life? This is a family oriented book, and you will love how the interaction is shown, they are there for one another. You could see where the bad guys could use that to their advantage, but will their love of God and family prevail. I received this book through Litfuse Publicity Book Tours, and was not required to give a positive review.
