My review: Nothing really surprising or unique, but still an enjoyable read. Experiencing the growing romance between the sassy Toni and the stubborn Adam was a lot of fun. All of the characters were well-developed and several could be protagonists in their own right. The plot was pretty predictable, but most romances are and that’s what makes them comfortable reads. The faith elements were compelling and not too preachy. For the most part, the Christian components fell together naturally. Only occasionally did they seem forced. It wasn’t a rip-roaring page-turner, but it was a nice read.
Christian Fiction Romance Author Rhonda Bowen writes for Kensington Publishing Corps (Dafina Books.) She has written two faith based novels Man Enough for Me and her current release One Way or Another. She is also an event planner and currently resides in Toronto, Ontario Canada.
Atlanta reporter Toni Shields will do whatever it takes to get a good story. So when she’s arrested for sneaking around the mayor’s house, she’s prepared. What she’s not prepared for is getting demoted–or her run-in with stubborn Adam Bayne, director of the local young men’s rehab center. . .
The first time Adam saw Toni, she was wrangling with the cops. Now she’s looking for a scoop at Jacob House. Adam has no intention of letting her near his boys–yet as usual, her pushiness wins. And when she genuinely helps a teen in trouble, Adam sees a side of her that cares about more than just a headline. Soon, they become close–their attraction growing. But there’s more to both their lives than meets the eye. Toni has a haunting family secret, one that is taking a great toll on her. And when she uncovers that Adam has a devastating past of his own, not only their relationship, but their futures, and their faith, lie in the balance.
