This is actually my 1st Inspirational Romance but to me it's a really good book to read. I love stories of people with integrity overcoming hardships, and this book, each having their own past to contend with but with each meeting result in increasing common understanding of one another that only few can understand. It is both Beautiful and Moving.

As cheesy as this one sounds, (which is not necessarily a bad thing! haha), it was quite adorable. I love that the "hero" was a police officer. I loved how he made the girl feel so special and loved. There were a few great quotes from this book:

"She had no experience of crushing on someone like that. She hadn't realized before how frightening it was to look a dream in the face. To realize how much it could change your life, and how much it could demand of you."

"With the way the light shone on her, she looked spotlighted, as if a painter had rendered her that way, the center of someone's world."

Aww!

I'm not sure this author has ever been to Bozeman, MT. I lived there for three years, and I've got to say, considering this book supposedly takes place there, it just doesn't feel like Bozeman to me. Except for the tater tots at the Mexican restaurant, that was authentic.

Brianna gets stood up again. This blind dating business isn't obviously for her. But then, Max Decker is also stood up. He wasn't really ready to date anyway, just felt pressured into it, but as he and Brianna strike up a conversation about their failed dating experiences, he feels drawn to her. But they've both got some issues from their past aside from the dating. Brianna has PTSD from a robbery and Max too has been caught in the line of fire, being that he's a cop. It makes both of them have some serious trust issues.

Brianna was very very timid. Every page you expected her to break. Now granted she had been through a very traumatic experience, so she had reason to be, but she just seemed like she'd blow away in the wind. And then there's Max, who is the exact opposite, except for his worries. He was a little too tough. Actually I think about the worst character in the book was Max's half brother who lived with him. For a kid that went to getting into trouble in L.A. to this squeaky clean do good kid in Bozeman, it just didn't seem realistic. Frankly I can't consider most kids acting the way this one did.

The plot was kind of feeble. And it was way too rushed. Everything happened so fast that it seemed the couple had barely gone out on a few dates before they loved each other so deeply. It takes time to get to know someone, more than a week or two. And aside from them dating and a few minor issues, nothing really happened in the book.

Blind-Date Bride by Jillian Hart
Book 1 in Series 4 of the McKaslin's
Brianna McKaslin and her twin sister, Brandilyn, have come through a lot together. A criminal father and a drunken mother left them with a bleak childhood. Brianna has survived a shooting but she suffers from the post traumatic stress. And now she is facing her third no show blind-date in a row. But she is still optimistic that one day God will give her the family life she did not have growing up. She works in her cousin Ava's bakery and goes to school to become a teacher. Life is still good, even after this third no show and her car being stolen while she waited, because she met Max Decker. Another man with a no show blind date. A man who was probably to good for someone like her.

Max Decker finally gave in and let a buddy from work set him up with another blind-date. Alice was a no show but he got to know Brianna while he waited. And she stayed with him long after he left her. Max had moved to Montana when a Detective job came up. He had his brother Marcus living with him and he believed that Montana would keep Marcus out of trouble unlike in LA. Max was not looking for a relationship. After a betrayal from a woman a decade ago, he learned. Somehow Bree got under his radar but he could never see such a beautiful girl like her seeing anything good in him.

Two people with troubled pasts who believe they are not good enough for each other. Can they trust God with their futures and move forward to where He leads them or will the darkness of the past blind them from a bright future?

Bree and Brandi have been in some of the previous McKaslin books with their cousins. This is the first book in series four. The children of Mick McKaslin.

We met Brianna and her twin in earlier McKaslin books. They had a rough home life. I don't remember much about the mother, but I know the father was a jail bird and had been married several times. But Brianna hadn't faced the darkness she does now. She'd suffered a horrible act of violence. Three people in the restaurant where she worked were violently killed, and she was in critical condition. Now she suffered from PTSD. Because of her family background, she didn't feel she could ever be loved by a decent man!

Enter hunk and dateless Max Decker who is a detective and was working on raising his half-brother after his mother announced she could no longer care for him. Max is doing everything he can to hold things together. He remembers Brianna from the night of the robbery. He had worked that case.

The two were on in a restaurant waiting for their blind dates to show up. They met and hit it off! There was something that just kept pulling them together even though they didn't want to be. But what will happen when Max realizes Brianna isn't as perfect as he thinks she is?
