I must admit I didn't have much interest in this book in the first place, just because it's not normally the genre I enjoy. Even so, I think if I had been interested, this book still would have been disappointing. I really hate writing critical reviews, but I didn't like this book much at all.
Mostly I felt this way because I just didn't like the main character. Shay really rubbed me the wrong way. It just felt like she was either complaining or feeling sorry for herself the entire time! Her stubbornness was also annoying, and though some might see her extreme independence as a virtue, I most certainly did not. Yes, Travis had been thoughtless and uncaring to her (I mean, really, leaving a girl at the alter -er, courthouse steps- is no small deal) but here he was bending over backwards to make it right and show he'd changed, and all she could do was growl at him anytime he tried to do something kind.
There were also several "mushy" parts that I skipped over. Through the characters' flashbacks, we learn that Shay and Travis's previous relationship involved a whole lot of kissing ( Am I the only one who would like to find a contemporary novel in which the characters save their first kiss for marriage?!) I found that though the characters really did seem to believe in the Lord, I didn't agree with a lot of their views and/or decisions. I really don't want to sound judgmental, but this book just seemed too "worldly" for me, and I barely finished it.
I received this book for free from Booksneeze.com in exchange for my honest review.
