Alex is passionate about his work promoting teenage purity and avoiding premarital sex. He is a virgin and is sure the woman God has for him will be a virgin, too. He is adopted but unlike his also adopted brother (Damian from book 1) he has never looked for his biological parents. It is implied that this is because he knows he is probably the product of a pre-marital relationship. Sometimes it's hard to believe both boys were raised by the same adoptive parents.
Alex and Serena have a strong attraction to each other but Serena knows that Alex is unlikely to accept her past so tries to avoid him. He has almost broken down her defenses when he discovers her past and rejects her. It takes awhile but he becomes aware his self-righteous attitude and comes to realize that he is judging her as a sinner when she is the spotless child of God. His experience also helps him become more compassionate with others who have given in to their sexual desires. Overall,he becomes a much nicer character.
I especially liked the teenage pregnancy storyline and how it played out with the characters from the first book. While I really enjoyed book one, I think this book could almost have a sequel of it's own because of the opportunity of growth for Alex, Serena and their ministry to teens.
I downloaded the first book in this series because it was free - since I had never heard of this author before, I wanted to see whether it was worth it to invest my money in purchasing the whole series.
First book was good - had some editing errors, but I could overlook them.
Second book was the same - good story and the grammatical and writing errors could be overlooked.
In the third book (which I'm still in the middle of), among many other glaring errors, the author calls the main character 'Josh' instead of 'Jace'.
I found the author on Facebook and sent a message to let her know that I like her style of writing but was disappointed by the editing - I understand that the current generation doesn't seem to care about proper writing as much as previous generations, but I've been reading well before the Internet and texting came into the scene and have a great appreciation for literature and proper grammar.
I have to say that the author's (I'm assuming it was the author due to the 'voice' and usage of person (my, I, etc) used in the reply) response disappointed me: she informed me that the series was written early in her career when she could not afford to hire a good editor. She has since hired a better editor and, while she is slowly working on re-editing her old books, her main focus is to work on her new books.
She wished me well in finding other authors in the Christian Romance genre to enjoy.
She also pointed out that I could always return the books and reminded me that the first one in the series was free.
Apparently, this author doesn't take enough pride in her work to go back and edit earlier novels so that her readers can fully enjoy the plot line/story without having to go back and re-read to try and understand what she was trying to say...
Don't waste your time/money on this series- read one of the newer series since the author is apparently pouring all of her time and effort into those.
