Synopsis:Up until now, Nicole's life has been mapped out for her. She'd go to college, marry Jake and become the upstanding minister's wife. When she leaves that life to begin again in a small town in Texas, she finally has the freedom to live as she chooses. There, she meets Kent, a guy whose charm and passion make it hard to stick to her morals.
Dodging his father’s fists and protecting his twin sister made Kent into the man he is today. He learned by watching his mother stay by his father’s side that it’s better to keep relationships simple. Then he meets Nicole. Her sweet smile and genuine response to him land like punches to his resolve. After a lifetime of learning to protect his heart, can he finally let down his guard?
My Review:I would consider this romance novel for the young at heart. It is about two young people experiencing a physical attraction and finding love, then allowing that love to help them overcome the barriers that are holding them back.....coming to grips with who they are as people and what they want out of life. The characters do grow and mature within the pages of this story.
I would classify it as a young adult romance read and Ms. Lopez does an excellent job of telling Nicole and Kent's story. This book could easily be read in a day and is a
sweet romantic feel good story.
