About She’s Got the Wrong Guy
The control freak. The angry man. The lazy guy. The unteachable guy. The promiscuous man. The unbeliever. The lone ranger. The unchurched guy. The new convert. The commitment-phobe.
For any woman who has struggled with failed relationships, this may seem like a familiar list. These are the men your friends and family have in mind when they think, “she’s with the wrong guy.” And while the reasons women choose these types of men are complicated and varied, ultimately, they will all let you down.
In She’s Got the Wrong Guy, Deepak Reju offers a different kind of dating book, discussing the types of guys women should not marry and offering biblical reasons why they aren’t suitable spouses. Writing from his years of experience as a pastor and counselor, Reju shares with women his perspective on how to assess a relationship’s strengths from the beginning, how to identify possible pitfalls, and how to have the courage to wait for a relationship that will be a blessing for both of you. Using stories that single women can relate to and highlighting contemporary issues in the modern world of dating, Reju gives readers clear, biblical direction on how to have positive, life-giving relationships with members of the opposite sex.
With a strong, Christ-centered focus, women will better understand why they “settle” for less than what God intends for their romantic relationships and learn to put their hopes and find their happiness in Jesus, not marriage.

I almost didn’t sign up for this book tour. What could I possibly read that’s new, different, and hasn’t been said before? Oh … just the entirety of this book. 🙂
If I could give everyone a copy of this – regardless of girl, guy, married, single – I would. Seriously. She’s Got the Wrong Guy is as much about the guy as it is the girl. Reju pulls no punches and challenges both genders to step up and be who God calls them to be.
Further, Reju speaks some stark truths that I frankly think everyone could benefit from. We live in a world (both Christian and secular) saturated by the notion that single people are lesser. The church suffers from this, and the secular world suffers from this, and we don’t realize it. But we need to change it. You see … well, let me just quote from the book a bit.
God has not promised you a husband or marriage in this life. He has promised that if you belong to him, you are part of his bride, the church ….
God has not promised that the man of your dreams will pursue you. He has promised that he will love you with a perfectly faithful, steadfast, and undying love ….
He has not promised you a man to grow old with, but he has promised you that he will never leave you or forsake you ….
(She’s Got the Wrong Guy eARC, loc. 551 of 3450)
And this is what I want to share with those around me, as a single woman who thought she’d have been married long ago. God has not promised me marriage. But he promised me himself. And that’s the best thing I can ever have.
Thanks to Reju and She’s Got the Wrong Guy for that reminder.
Whether you belong in the “target demographic” of this book, or know someone who is – pick up a copy of the book. It will challenge you and help you support those around you.
I received a free copy of the book from Litfuse. All opinions are my own.
