4.0 out of 5 stars Worth Reading, June 30, 2009
This review is from: First Comes Love (Urban Christian) (Paperback)
'First Comes Love' is a Christian fiction novel written by Shana Johnson Burton. The main characters in this story are London Harris, a real estate agent, and Bernard Phillips, a restaurant owner. The two have been best friends since they were children, nothing more, nothing less.

The story starts out with the two of them being dumped by their significant others. After this took place, they decided to get away to Vegas so they could forget their troubles for the time-being, or so they thought. After a wild night of drinking, the two end up in bed together the next morning and realize they got married the night before.

The two decided that they would just as quickly annul the marriage, since they realized marriage wouldn't work for them, and friendship would. But when news of the secret marriage got back to London's grandmother, a strong believer in God and the bonds of marriage, she urged them to try to make it work.

Bernard and London decided to try to make it work, more so for her grandmother's sake than their own. Despite numerous efforts, mostly on Bernard's part, their marriage went through many ups and downs. But in the end was it too little, too late?

Overall this book was a very good read. It got a little confusing during the first few chapters when the author would flashback to the main characters childhoods. I don't feel that was necessary to get the point of the story across. I would give this story 4 stars out of a possible 5, and would recommend it to anyone who wants to read a good novel that gets the theme across without the constant use of profanity and sexual scenarios.
