Stacey is believable because not all girls are fighters. Many young women are gentle... ooops.. not any more. Ok, some young women are still gentle lol. Just because she is gentle, doesn't mean she isn't strong. She is, but in the way of character which is really the strongest of all.
My heart immediatly went out for Stacey. Miss Taylor did a fantastic job developing her character. From broken glasses to frumpy clothes, the girl is a walking disaster. She hardly pays attention to herself b/c she is nursing her father who has fallen ill. She has no life, no job, (dropped out of school), and lives only for him. The bills keep piling up and she doesn't see a way out. Her pain and her struggle is so real.
Insert Joey. Boy next door who Stacey has always had eyes for. He shows up unannounced and suddenly takes Stacey under her wing. She's suspicious, I mean who wouldn't be? He practically ignored her all through high school and now suddenly he's the knight riding in on a horse? Insecurity sets in, he must want something, I mean it can't be her looks or personality, though as she grows through the story you fall in love with her.
He wants a wife. Perhaps want is too tame of a word, he needs a wife. He needs an out in order to cover up a bad choice from his past.
Oddly enough, as the story unfolds his logic makes sense. I loved watching their story unfold. Stacey eventually blossoms into a beautiful young wife and Joey falls more in love with her every day but he can't let go of his past love, thinking that if he falls in love again, not only will he not survive it, but in a way lose himself in the process. Whats funny is you would think that Stacey would be more jaded when it came to love, but she is the one that gives unconditionally in the relationship.
In the end Joey has to learn that sometimes you need to choose to allow your heart to fall.
I've never picked up a Stephanie Taylor novel I didn't like. This one had it all, great steamy (but clean) romantic scenes, laughter, and most of all, Love, after all.....Sometimes it is a choice.
I have to say, I loved it all. The raw sad parts of brutal honesty were my favourite, yes it was so sad to read that a man wants to marry you for convenience, not love or so. But he was trying to do what's right for his baby, it was a really fine line to walk but the author did a splendid job. Stacy was so adorable. Yes she was a Bible toting kind of girl, but I mean; why is that a bad thing? I found it adorable that she resisted the man of her dreams because of her beliefs and because she wasn't as delusional as some might believe. She was self sacrificing and amazing to agree to do what she did.
The dynamic of Cameron and Joey was one that was difficult, all the passion and feelings they shared resulted in a beautiful baby. The marriage was founded between Stacy and him was one of mutual respect and friendship. Honestly, they way the author wrote about the marriage was so true in many ways. I could see myself in Stacy in some instances (with how she felt towards her husband and how he felt towards her) it was a very real portrayal in my view.
Yes, I have been married for twelve years so far, had someone asked me the question of whether my husband and I would be still in the throws of passion for each other, I would have shouted a yes from the roof tops. The fact is yes we love each other dearly, but most days aren't a passion ridden episode of the young and the restless...but rather a contented day of two best friends sharing our lives together. We are happy and in love in the most comfortable way and this book captures that truth for most married couples (save some of their problems). But generally, I LOVED this book.
