This story was rather ridiculous. The writer needed more characters and a little more depth. Seriously, what are the odds of your rapist moving to your town after you had relocated? And that you would end up at the same church and fall in love? Way too bizarre. Or that everyone you love would die? And you would fall in love again soon after. This author does not have a touch of real life. Must be nice to be able to dream but sadly it is far from reality. Sorry, but I only gave it 1 star because you can't give anything less. Maybe the author will do better on the next book.

This book is dull despite horrific events. It's amazing that rape, sudden deaths of loved ones and an attack by a crazed drug user can leave you yawning, but it does.

As if being raped is not enough, AND losing your parents and fiance at once in automobile accident, the book also attempts, unneccessarily, to stir additional sympathy for the heroine by telling us that the rest of her family blames her for her parents' death. It was obviously in no way her fault and she is suffering most. It was a really stupid plot point.

The big reveal in this book is, depending upon your stomach, underwhelming or disgusting -- maybe both. Its heart is in the right place, I suppose. It means to say that given the right circumstances, anything can be forgiven. I am not sure this book can be forgiven for wasting my time. I am tempted to spoil by giving away the ending -- yep, I found the book that irritating. But I won't spoil it. You may already have figured it out anyway because even from the description, I suspected it was going there. I just could not believe it would, and so maybe I have only myself to blame for reading it. The title is good and it drew me in and the cover art is well done. It is grammatical. But it does not build a compelling story and the switch in POV to the antagonist is jarring -- whose story is this? Are we in this other guy's head only so we can be sure to dislike him? Not really necessary for that. It's a bad technique in a book that is full of them.

So glad I did not spend money on this! 1. The idea of falling in love with the man who viciously raped you is sickening. 2. This book should be advertised as a Christian romance.

This book has a series of tragic events occur which is unrealistic. This book is heavily entwined with Christian beliefs which was an unpleasant surprise. According to the author you should forgive your rapist if he is remorseful and if the rape resulted in a child. Ridiculous!

A disservice was done by not giving any details about the rape. At the time the rape happened there was only one sentence saying that she was raped. Then a few times she tells people that she was raped without giving any details then either. One reviewer stated that it as wrong that she ended up with a man who viciously raped her. How do we know if was vicious if very few details were given? Maybe the author excluded the details to justify her allowing her rapist to co-parent her child with her and being his girlfriend in subsequent books. If details were given then it would seem more real. As it was I had no sympathy for her because her emotional reaction to being raped seemed minimal and the reader did not have to live through it with her.

Also the story dragged. The only reason I finished the story was to hear the rapist's justification for doing what he did. IMO he did not redeem himself enough to earn the right to co-parent his child. He was doing it for him as opposed to his son. During the story the heroine met another man who appeared would have been a good husband and a good father to her child. Unfortunately that did not pan out, due to neither of the characters' fault. What it did show is that the heroine could meet other men who would make a good husband and parent. The rapist thinking that his son needed him because he was the biological father, IMO is wrong. I have both biological and adopted children. The love my husband and I have for all of them is the same, regardless of their origins. While at some point my adopted children may be curious enough to want information about their biological parents, they do not feel less loved or incomplete because they were given up for adoption.

i ABSOLUTELY LOVED this book. I could feel every word written clear to my soul. The way that Kat's faith in God and her close walk with Him was depicted was WONDERFUL. I could not put it down and I will promise you that I will be reading the other 2 books in this trilogy!

I honestly don't know what the other people were talking about in their reviews. I enjoyed this book very much. I kept turning the page to find out what happened next. The only problem that I had was that there was no epilogue. I would love read more about their life together.

OK, I am all about forgiveness but I not sure where i stand on in in this book, it was good read. I am not sure I could be so for giving so quickly. It would take such a big hearth an lots of prayers.
