The author’s background in mental health authenticates the reluctance and shame behind criminal actions such as forced sexual relations between adults in potential compromising situations. Baganz’s female protagonist is an extraordinarily beautiful woman, desired not only by a dangerous illegal immigrant cook working at the restaurant where she’s a silent partner and server, but also by the owner of the family corporation for nefarious purposes. Another of her instant admirers has the potential to steal her heart. But Stephanie’s secret colors her life and future. With the support of her friends and business partners she explores a heart-wrenching decision. Stephanie’s new admirer, however, attorney Roberto, offers another option. Roberto is as close to a rescuing knight as can be, but for a shameful recent past that changed his life and leaves him in great physical pain that stretches his coping skills.
Two very broken people, from families that directly influenced them, come together through faith and hope to forge a new future, one that is threatened even after their marriage. Surviving the tough stuff becomes more than just a saying for Stephanie and Roberto. Salsa and Speedbumps is great food for thought. Told from multiple viewpoints. Recommended for readers who enjoy some thrills and danger, and heavy duty emotional inspirational stories.
The couple were interested in each other from the beginning, but both carry secrets which could cause others to reject them. Finding the courage to be vulnerable on their first date, they build a relationship based on true character. Their path is made treacherous by bump after bump but watching them work their way along their path is a lesson for all of us as we grow in our relationships.
Stephanie is stalked by an ex-boyfriend who refuses to let her go and a trafficker who wants to exploit her. As Roberto tries to protect her, he must deal with his own pain and the unjust assumptions of others.
In addition to these lessons there is plenty of information the reader can learn about the worlds of adoption and trafficking..
Thanks to Susan for a book with a thrilling story, education, and a great escape.
Roberto Rodriquez has Christian parents who adopted him and he wants to help others b/c of the gift he was given by his birth mother. He is an attorney and is asked to join Every Child a Home organization.
Roberto lets God lead his every move. Can Stephanie have a relationship like that with God? She’s not who she used to be since accepting Jesus as her Savior, but she still has to deal with the consequences of what happened before. God doesn’t make that go away, but He helps you through your choices as you trust in Him. Some sin you can see, some you can’t, but all suffer the consequences. Can Stephanie trust Roberto or will he be like her ex-boyfriend and force himself on her? Why is God bringing a new man into her life now? How can she know God is talking to her?
Robbie wants someone who shares his faith. Is that person Stephanie? Will she accept him for the person he is today, or will she hold his past against him? Will Every Child a Home believe him when he’s accused of immoral behavior? In the midst of trials and temptations, Robbie and Stephanie must stand firm in their faith.
From date rape to drug addiction to stalking to ties with the mafia and sex trafficking, this book has it all. This resonated with me while reading this book: Everything I need to fulfill my life is right here in God. We find it hard to forgive ourselves. Can Stephanie forgive her past to have a future with Robbie? Pick up this great book to see!
