Some people aren't meant to have it all...
Three years ago, nanny Lily Yee enjoyed a passionate fling with her boss, the recently divorced and extremely eligible Eric Roche. Then the sexy surfer/CEO wanted more than she could give, and she fled to pursue her one true calling—the priesthood.
Eric learned how to love from Lily and wanted to build a happy family with her. But she walked away without explanation, leaving him angry, confused, and…fine, he'll admit it, occasionally a little desperate for her.
When a crisis in her church leads Lily back into Eric's arms, his heart calls to her as strongly as the priesthood. He'll do anything to win her back, but she knows she's not cut out to juggle a family and a career. She needs to let him go again soon, but she can't deny they're not over yet.
Great Clergy Romance
I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an unbiased review.
This was a fun romantic read. The author is an episcopal priest and thus does an excellent job portraying the work life and inner world of a young female priest. Before I continue I think it is important to say that I am a clergy woman. I found this book to be very reflective of my experience and loved that the protagonist was so human and real. For anyone who loves romance novels and wonders what it might be like to be a young female religious professional this is a great read!
On to the romance...the relationships between the protagonist and her flame was sweet. I found the challenges they faced to be realistic, and the outcome to be believable. The eventual relationship between the ex-wife character and the main character was a bit hokey, but I liked it anyway. I will absolutely keep reading Amber Belldene's "Hot Under Her Collar" series.
