This is a wonderful love story between Maryanne and Lucas. They have so much pain between them that I do believe that they were truly were meant to be. They were each others healing stars. - My Thoughts for Thought
I also loved that Ayala made Lucas a very lovable man of color. Honestly, I'm OVER the whole bad boy thing... It's nice to have a wholesome man who we can love! - Sandling All Day
The hero, Lucas, was my favorite. He started off great and he had me rolling! He's upbeat and hilarious at opportune times, but straight forward and serious, letting his voice shine when it all boils down to his compassion for life. - Finding Forever in Romance
you become a character in her book. You live the adventure, the romance, the thrill, the mystery. Putting the book down is literally impossible until you've finished it, because it becomes your life. - Mom's Thumb Reviews
The book takes you on a journey through a new romance plagued with unfortunate circumstances, It tears at your heart, and manages to also lift you up. - Domesticated Breakdown
The issue is covered from both sides of the table regarding abortion and I thank the author for that. There are a lot of one sided novels out there, that do not touch on the real emotion that a woman is feeling when trying to make this decision and fighting with herself from the inside. - Manic Mama of 2
This book is a book about choices. The choices we make, and those made for us. - Thoughts of a Mother, Wife, and Daughter
Best described as an emotional, fast-paced rollercoaster ride that is sure to grip and tear hearts of all who read it. - Hearts and Hands More Than Full
This book touches on a topic very important to God. I understand that not everyone agrees with all of the slight differences in doctrine that cut across Christianity and differences in interpretation, but hope that Christians can set aside their minor disagreements to get behind the big picture of life, love, hope, and faith.
