Nikki experienced trauma six years ago that has rooted her life in fear.
Gregory “Shorty” Smalls has been in love with Nikki for six years, but will she ever see him the same way?
I loved how relatable Nikki was. I loved how patient and kind Shorty was. I loved the theme of God turning what was meant for our harm into something good- trading our ashes for beauty.
My favorite Toni Shiloh characters were Dwight and Nina, but I think Nikki and Shorty have now tied for my favorites.
You should probably start with Maple Run book one, Buying Love and work back to Risking Love (book 4) to understand all the characters.
Since moving to Maple Run shortly after her traumatic experience, she and Shorty have been friends – only as close as Nikki will allow herself to be to any man. When Shorty first met Nikki, he knew he wanted to marry her. Nikki wishes she could forget her past and be the whole woman Shorty deserves. When she finally summons enough courage to tell him why she can’t date him, he bears the pain with her and shows her that God has always viewed her as His beloved creation.
Shorty and Nikki begin swapping Bible scriptures each day and even praying together. She finally feels ready to move forward with a meaningful relationship with Shorty. But there’s the nagging guilt that she has basically ignored her family for six years, because her attacker was a family friend. Will Nikki be able to forgive her family and stop seeing the attacker’s face in her brother’s? With God all things are possible – not easy, but possible.
I was amazed with this book. It was very meaningful and the characters were so real and likeable that it was a real page-turner. I greatly appreciated the emphasis on Scripture and a relationship with God. It was very moving to watch Nikki heal and see her painful process as she changed from surviving to thriving. Shorty is a fantastic example of a strong Christian man, and there was a particularly heartwarming and memorable scene in his carpenter’s shop where he showed Nikki how and why God cares for her. This is hands-down a worthwhile read!
