Great read ;)
A very good contemporary romance story involving likable characters going through real life situations. The character, storyline, & plot are well developed. I'm looking forward to reading more by this author! ;)
Love the happy ending!
I really enjoyed reading this book. I can relate to many of the characters in this story. Melissa knows how to tell it like it is with all the feelings - negative and positive - that can run through a person's mind. I'm glad that this had a happy ending as well. It left me feeling good inside. And yet there is just enough of a teaser at the end that makes me want to keep on reading more. I'm so looking forward to reading more of Melissa's books.
Sweet, Faith-based romance

Jeffrey has no inclination to follow in his father's career path yet he hesitates to let his wishes known. They were best friends and both secretly wanted to share their love for each other. This was an enjoyable book with loveable characters with realistic problems and feelings.
