The entire plot of the book centers around Laney and Jackson's relationship. Built on a strong friendship, they still have many obstacles. Even after Jackson accepts Christ as his Savior, bad choices he made in his past keep cropping up, and Laney has her problems, too. To add zest and humor are Laney's three 79-year-old, spinster, triplet aunts.
This is an amazing book. The characters are so real, and I fell in love with them. They are the kind that will stay with most readers, long after their story has been told. Jackson is an unusual hero. Despite his star status, he is so humble, as he struggles with his self-concept. This is one of the best romances I've read lately. It's a story of redemption and trust. Shame on Love Inspired for not wanting to publish it (from the end notes). Christian readers are not as judgmental as they think. If God and the angels rejoice when a lost soul is found, how can we do less?
This book is very well written and the author really brought out emotions in me. I enjoyed the chemistry between the two main characters and the history that they shared. I loved to see the male character entering into his faith with uncertainty and also see the female character wavering in her own faith. I found it to be very realistic given where they had both been in their life. I felt the Christian elements added to the story and didn't overpower too much. I don't like when Christian fiction is so heavy handed that everyone can't enjoy the story line and be moved toward coming to faith. Both of the characters seemed human and had realistic reactions to different situations.
I wouldn't personally share this book with a young adult. The male characters past is such that I just don't think it is appropriate reading material. That is just my opinion, but sometimes others find this helpful.
Laney's mother has died and her 3 triplet great aunts (the three Graces) are the only family she has left. She is struggling financially and her faith is hurting since her mother's death. Jeb has been on tour and they have had little contact over the past several months. When he comes home, Jeb is excited to tell Laney that he has become a Christian but waits as he wants to help her reconnect with her faith first.
It was interesting to see Jeb grow as a Christian. He had become sick of his lifestyle and accepted Jesus but he didn't knows where to go from there. He had royalties coming in from songs he had written that he was ashamed of. His former band members and manager were angry at him for breaking up the band. He thought his musical career was over as a result of being a Christian and his songwriting creativity seemed to have dried up. Past choices such as the aborted pregnancy of a groupie, not remembering what he had done while drunk, etc. continue to haunt him. He doesn't feel he is worthy of being Laney's husband so tries to find a "good Christian man" for her even though he loves her.
The only part of the book I disliked was when he leaves to pursue his new Christian music career without communicating properly with Laney. I understood his need to go and the deadline he had to meet but not telling her and explaining was ridiculous. He was fortunate she was so forgiving; most would not be.
And I loved the epilogue ending. It was good to see them happy in the future. Now I'm looking forward to the book on the "Three Graces."
