Have you ever been hurt by someone in the past and even though they seem like they might have changed, you struggle with letting go of the hurt and your opinion on the way that person used to be? I know I have. Nickels is story about Niki, a young software engineer that just scored her dream account at Helitronics. The hard part is she will directly be working with Kyle Jacobs, a friend from the past that she isn't sure she should trust. And with all the loss she's had in her life she can't take any chances on a broken heart.

Niki's character is so dynamic!! She is struggling with forgiving the past and moving forward and she is very lost, which makes this character so realistic and interesting. She needs healing and she needs to trust in love again. Kyle has been through some serious tough situations also, but in the process has found God and is hoping that Niki will see his new attitude and personality as appealing!

The whole story is primarily focused on Niki and Kyle completing this computer code for Helitronics by a certain deadline. The boss keeps changing the deadline and seems to have it out for destroying Niki. You can tell Baney knows what she is talking about when describing the software aspect of the story.

Nickels is fast-moving, thought provoking, spiritual, sweet romantic, full of God's restoration and healing, forgiveness, and a match-making friend making this story one amazing Christian Contemporary novel.

I have read all of Karen Baney's historical novels and loved them but I was little nervous to see if she could pull off doing both historical and contemporary! I had nothing to worry about, Nickels was truly amazing!! I will keep reading whatever genre Baney decides to write!!

Disclosure: I received a free copy of Nickels in exchange for my personal and honest opinion. All opinions are my own. I was not required to write a positive review.

This book suffers from too much information. There were subplots, such as a barbecue, hiking trip, single parents, harassing boss, and a new job, that added nothing to the main story. The author gives every detail about clothing, food, colors, etc, but very little information on why two 'best' friends/roommates were in the dark about things best friends should know. Also, the hero's severe back pain mysteriously disappears after allowing the heroine to show concern for him. Most annoying of all, he proposes at the end of one chapter and in the beginning of next chapter the heroine goes into labor, they have a baby boy, and live happily ever after. Really? Did the author get tired of writing this book and decide to just stop?

I wasn't at all sure of what to expect from this book so my mind was pretty open and I had no expectations going in. I have to say that I thoroughly enjoyed it from beginning to end! I am looking forward to reading more by Karen Baney, and I would recommend her books to anyone who wants a thought provoking read.

There is a little bit of everything in this book, and it kept me interested from start to finish. The characters are well thought out, and I really enjoyed the interaction between them. I found myself laughing and crying and rooting for them at different points. I think we all have a best friend like the lady in this book, and if we don't, we wish we did!

Most of all the struggles experienced by the main character was one that I think we all identify with on some level. Although we may not be in the type of industry she is, we've all had things hit us from left field in our jobs. We may not have dealt with the issues she had to deal with in relation to her *man*, but we've felt her pain on some level. We may not struggle with our faith in the same way, but we've all faced the loss of it at some point or other. This story makes you realize that others have the same problems and reminds us all that we are not alone.

Niki Turner has managed to shove the pain of her past far enough out of her life to create a successful career as a software engineer. She's hard hitting and focused and, as the novel opens, is on the verge of landing a large project with her dream client, Heliotronics. In fact, she'd be able to hold her life together if her roommate would quit trying to get her married off.

But who knew that Kyle Jacobs was back in town, and working for Heliotronics? He was the jerk who tormented her mercilessly all through high school. Worse, he was the guy she'd had a crush on. It would have been nice if his little sister-her roommate-had warned her, but no.

Can Niki ignore her revived feelings for the new-and-improved Kyle and keep the project focused on a shifting schedule? Or will the tension-and history-between them sabotage the whole thing and put lives at risk if the simulation fails?

Nickels is a contemporary romance novel set in the greater Phoenix, Arizona, area. It's obvious the author is well acquainted with the heroine's career. Sometimes I wanted Niki to get over herself, but I realized that was (part of) the point of the story. Kyle's path from beginning to end was a bit more complicated and therefore seemed more understandable.

If you like Christian contemporary romance set in urban areas, you might enjoy Nickels. It's available on Amazon in both print and Kindle versions.
