Amanda Beiler could never have imagined the course her life would take when she happened to meet Alejandro Diaz. After catching the eye of the Cuban superstar, she hesitantly decides to leave her small Amish community in order to save it from the relentless attention of the paparazzi. Away from her close-knit family and the familiar rituals of her faith for the first time, Amanda goes on tour with the famous singer, and as she begins to see the world under Alejandro's care, she starts to appreciate life beyond the boundaries of home. Meanwhile, Alejandro is changing, too, and remembering what it feels like to be with someone who wants him despite - not because of - his celebrity.
As their connection grows stronger and their differences shrink, Amanda will have to make a difficult choice: Return to her old life among the Plain, or stay in the limelight with the man she loves?

This series messes with your life. You can't stop thinking about the characters, since they are excellently portrayed by the author. It is so real and down to earth, that you feel like you have met them somewhere or another. Probably, the best series I have read in a long time. It is delightfully better as an audiobook. I salute the narrator for a job well done. What a treat!

I would certainly recommend this audiobook to anybody who enjoys a good romance story. I was never into romances and ordered this because I am "English" who grew up in Amish country. I can't get my work done because I am so immersed in this story, giving the reader my full attention for too many hours in the day.
Amanda returned to her home when she was needed, not forsaking her family for her new life with her husband.
Her delightful tone of voice as she reads the different characters.
Ha Ha Ha That is for sure and certain!
I am now going for the third book in the series. I am thinking I will hate it when I finally have listened to all of them.
I'm certain that hearing the voices and accents of the characters bring this book to life. Amy McFadden did an incredible job at narration.
Alejandro is my favorite because he is so compassionate and charming. He has so much patience with Amanda and such acceptance for her way of life. He is such a superstar but is so human and unaffected by his fame. He doesn't forget where he comes from and what his circumstances were growing up.
When we found out what happened to Amanda's brother. We kept hearing about his tragic death but we finally heard what happened and how this affected the family and why Amanda has such guilt about leaving the farm.
Yes. Almost did listen to it in one sitting.
I had no intention of buying the next book in the series. I was going to just stop after this book because I really do not like romance books. But as I listen, I'm not sure that this actually qualifies as a romance novel. It certainly does have some romance but it also has so much more. I'm going to go listen to book 3 now and I have no intention of buying #4. Hah! We will see how that goes.
I liked this story a lot. I felt Ike the author went in to deep into the sexual relations with this story. Christian fiction does jot have to have the world's ways in them. still a very good book.
Loved the story, narrator and the unusual theme. People are different but can live together, adapt, love and have a good message. going to listen to next book in series can't wait.
