That being said, it's not a bad story. Maybe just a bit fluffy and a bit too convenient in details. But then, maybe I'm a bit old fashioned. But in the world I know, divorces don't magically happen in months, especially where a very young child is involved, women who discover her now ex-husband is a cheat living an apparently double life trust almost immediately in new love, etc etc.
That being said, if you are looking for a little romantic fluff without graphic sexual scenes, you may very well enjoy the offerings.
He still has a huge crush on her but he was wounded, he stopped his education when he joined the Army so he has no career. He is due to inherit the ranch from his father but he doesn't really want it. He is just not that excited about being a cowboy. He really wants to be a vet. These two go back and forth as they try to see where they stand in the romance department. If you like a really simple, clean romance, with prayer thrown in from time to time, then this is the story for you.
SPOILER - I found the story just a bit boring. Also, I'm not sure of my Army ranks but he seems to be a bit young to be a Major. So, that didn't add up for me. If he graduated high school at 19, and I thought he went to some college, then joined the Army, he would have made major in just a few years. It doesn't really work that way. I really had a hard time believing that these two war vets, he and his friend Pete, go to a sports bar and get wings and soda. Then the heroine just seemed a bit "virginal" in her dealing with him yet she has a child!!! I was just not feeling this one. It is a very clean, Christian based story so I'm sure some will find it very inspirational. I did quit reading after his friend Pete got to town. I was just bored. Their lives was as boring as mine!
I was not paid for this review. I am not an author nor do I know one. I am not kin to this writer. I am a reader and this is my opinion, nothing more, nothing less.
God and faith are mentioned but only like religious people mention it, not like true believers who talk to God all the time, who search for answers through their faith. This book just mentions it in passing. For that I didn't give it 5 stars. Both Squire and Kelly are wounded individuals who only show superficially that they are healed after a trial by fire. There is never the heart condition being gifted to God only a short spoken 1-2 line prayer and then magically they come around. Life usually doesn't work like that.. change requires work and God's help. It is a series of steps taken in the right direction.
Even with all that I like this author and will read more of her work and recommend it for a light read.
There really was no second chance since they never dated in high school. Squire was 2 years younger then Kelly, and he in a way asked her to her senior prom and she ignored him so they never went out, but he is the little brother of Kelly's bbf. I get that this is a Christian romance so there was no steamy parts and that was fine, sometimes you dont need to read sex, but it got a bit to much when the subject of religion came up so much. Like 'God chose his/ her path' or 'God put me in the tank when it blow' and so on. Really? you chose your own path, not God, you have free will and you chose to serve in the army that was you, not a higher being. You choose to have a relations with your boos and get married no one else. I had to skim here and there because it just went on and on. The 'big bang' and the ending came and went like a blink of an eye. I will be reading the next two and hoping they get better.
I loved how she was able to write a Christian romance without slapping me in the face with too many God references. I have found that other "inspirational" or "Christian" books can be a bit heavy-handed, but Liz (Elana) introduced the church/God aspect as a matter of fact, daily living sort of thing, which makes it very comfortable to read. It's not lecture-y or preachy, just a family living through their faith.
I also really enjoyed the very real struggle of dating after a divorce, especially with a child involved, which ups the emotional risk.
This is a book I will likely read again and I will continue to buy and devour this author's books as they are released.
