One of the things I liked most was the real conversations and vulnerability the
characters portrayed. I was glad that Jacelynn had a "keeping it real, foreal" friend in Kim.
Bottom line, it is very worth reading!
Even though Jacelynn's in a stable, safe and loving relationship she is still unfulfilled and searching for what she did not know.
This well-written love story by debut novelist Faith Simone is a story that puts the Christian faith front and center. Simone created unforgettable characters going through trials and tribulations that on the surface may seem trivial but just below the surface the full depth and dimension of the need and desire for a close-knit relationship with God is germane to every plot point in this well-crafted story.
The individual story lines for Jacelynn, Taylor, Kim, Jason, and their other friends will pull on your emotions, as they attempt to walk in the Spirit and not in the flesh. I kept wondering when Jacelynn would make her choice. I hope you will not be surprised. Somehow, I wasn’t.
This novel is great for anyone but particularly for those who love a great Christian Fiction romance. Keep writing, Faith and I will be a reader.
Pros: This is the kind of writing that makes you forget where you are. (Don't read this on the train or bus.) I felt, heard, and saw everything the characters did.
The story is set in Los Angeles, and I felt very nostalgic reading about my ol' hood.
Her characters were memorable and full
Cons: Plot was light and I wish it was a bit longer.
Overall, I look forward to more from Simone. I'm a fan.
