Bailey was... something else. (Triggers ahead) I was a little confused reading her and following along with the stories. She has legitimate reasons to keep men at bay, her daughter needs stability and consistency. But, her insecurities and hesitancy don't reflect reality. She is crazy insecure about not being with someone who will leave her. Understandable, right? Most people are. Early on, it's implied that she feels that way because Libby's sperm donor left her. And that implies that they were in a relationship to begin with. Come to find out, they were in a relationship for a little while, but he didn't leave her out of not wanting to be responsible. He assaulted her and wanted nothing to do with her after. (And this just rubs me the wrong way. Libby's sperm donor raped Bailey. It's very clear that is what happened. She said no, he continues against her will. Yet, the book doesn't mention the assault or crime that it is. It's "he took advantage of" or "it wasn't her choice". Both of those are kind ways to water down what happened: rape. Acting as if it wasn't that big of a deal was very frustrating.) So, why she feels like she was abandoned by her attacker is beyond me. And the only time we see that the attack had an impact on her that makes sense is when Shep tried to kiss her and she has a full on panic attack.
So, I just couldn't reconcile how someone who was raped would feel like her "partner" abandoned her, just have a panic attack when someone else touched her. It almost felt like throwing in the rape line was done to have the character have a daughter but preserve her reputation as a Christian? But there were two storylines there, and they didn't mesh. Either, she was assaulted and fearful of men due to that. Or she was in a relationship, made a mistake and got pregnant, and the guy left, thus feeling abandoned. Blending those two don't mix well.
Aside from all of that, I did enjoy the journey, mainly because of Shep and his faith and utter respect he had for Bailey. The ending was sweet and surprising. They didn't marry right away, but seemed to court. It was very sweet and different.
The characters had realistic emotions and feelings and were easy to relate to. I was pulled back into the time I was that age and the very real issues that challenge all young adults. I loved the way Shep and Bailey turned to God and prayer when life got stressful.
I enjoyed reading this clean sweet romance.
I will definitely buy more books from this author and others who write in this same genre ! ! ! !
The characters were realistic and the story moved along well.
She has some serious trust issues that he works hard to help her through...
Of course, it's beyond his capabilities to bridge the gap.
