i wasn't into the heavy religious message being pushed on the reader but even with that the story was good. well it was good until the end. then i wanted to completely b**ch slap kelly. for crying out loud i can understand her confusion originally but then she doesn't believe tim when he tells her rocker loves her even though he repeats word for word the message rocker sends declaring his love to her. then with rocker standing right in front of her telling her how much she means to him and how he can't live without her she goes on and on about how she can't come back to work for him because it's just too hard. enough already! the poor guy is practically begging while going on and on about his feelings then proposes and she wants to know if he has a concussion. that is when she either should be slapped or deserves to be lonely. nobody is that flipping dumb.

The Most Important Catch by Jaclyn M. Hawkes is really a tale of two stories. The dominate, and most interesting, is the love story between NFL superstar Robby "Rocket" Robideaux and 23-year-old nurse Kelly Campbell.

Many parts of their developing relationship were very well written. It reminded me of when I fell in love with my wife. The interaction between Robby and Kelly is at times sweet, while at other times, is it downright hilarious. Hawkes has a real talent for dialogue and humor. I found myself smiling on several occasions.

The second element of the story is why Kelly is on the run. I think Hawkes came up with a good reason for Kelly to be on the run, but that plotline played a significantly smaller part to the story. In other words, if you are expecting a page turning thriller, this isn't it.

What is it then? It's a love story with all its ups and downs, hopes and doubts, joys and heartbreaks. If that's your cup of tea, you'll enjoy this book.

Overall I enjoyed the book. It was a clean read with no objectionable material.

I should note this book is geared for LDS, or "Mormon" audiences. It pulls no punches in talking about faith, God and various elements of the LDS faith. The downside? If you aren't familiar with LDS practices and beliefs, chances are you'll be confused by several things in the book.

There are a couple of things that would have made the book more enjoyable to me. First, there was a lot of internal dialogue with the main characters sorting out their feelings. Some of it was quite repetitive and I found myself skipping over those parts. Second, it's a picky thing, but there were a number of technical issues with the typesetting and layout of the book that distracted me.

If you are a fan of LDS fiction and romance books, you'll certainly want to pick this book up! It can be purchased at this link.

If this book wasn't so heavy handed with the LDS/Morman church, I would have given it more stars. In fact, if the author had cut about 80% of the church, blessings, reading the Book of Morman, etc from this book, it'd be a decent storyline.

I'm sorry, I just don't see ANYONE asking someone to marry then when they haven't even had more than a few lame kisses and is going off that they respect each other and they 'love' them.

If they replaced the Book of Morman focus with the bible or any other religion, I'd be saying the same thing. I think I deserve money because I READ the book and will NEVER get those hours back in my life...and save yourself even though it's free and just move on to other options.

The only saving grace of this story was Rocker because I liked him immensely. Kelly became more and more annoying as I read because of her inability to see what was going on right in front of her face. The storyline of her escape and the crime that cause her to run had such great possibilities. But the author did not quite pull it off. Instead, she used it mostly to fill space. The rest of the space was filled with endless, mind-numbing details about the house: what was fixed, what was next to be fixed, what they ate, what movie they rented, etc. All of that was "unstory" that didn't need to be told.

The biggest problem with this book though was all the "telling." Paragraph after paragraph of "she knew," "he worried," and "she was afraid," completely removed me from the heads of the characters. The author needs to study deep point of view, how make a character real and jump off the page, how to make me feel like I'm there with them and not sitting on my couch, which is all I got out of it. Sentence structure was a slight problem, which added to the "telling" feel of the story.

I do appreciate the clean nature of the story, and the references to God were fine. But at times the Mormon faith was shoved down my throat. I don't like to be drowned in any faith in any book, regardless of what I personally believe. It should be a highlight to the character, not a preaching point to convert me, and that became a serious turn-off the further I read.

Overall, not a book I would recommend. It needs a lot of work.

This book was a suprise and not in a good way. I'm not against religion but a little warning would have been nice. I didn't even finish this book i was so upset with it. The beginning just made me angry because they felt like they coudn't fall for each other because they were not members of the "church". Love is love. I might have finished this book if i had realized what i was buying, but i didn't so it sucked. Sorry to the author i know you probally worked hard on this and its your religion.

Besides the religion aspect I felt like the dialogue parts were very boring. They seemed amost forced instead of natural they way talking to people should be. I just felt like too extremely boring people were falling in boring love.

One more issue and I promise im done.The author put so much into the religion of the characters yet she made them both liars. I dont know a lot about LDS beliefs but i'm fairly sure lieing is a sin in any religion.
