Very refreshing to listen to an interesting, and different romance from a Christian author. The story is very good. And there is no foul language or explicit sexual reading.

A very delightful, entertaining, and different book. And I was impressed with the author who has enough of a vocabulary that she does not have to use foul language and explicit language to tell the story. There were times when I was laughing out loud.

Emma Bailey is fed up with the dating scene, and if she hears her mother nag one more time about getting married…well, she’s had it, and she wants everyone to know it. In a moment of clarity (or insanity?), she announces to the world that she will never marry. No husband and no kids; no worries about diapers, driving lessons, or divorce. Her friends are there for her, but they’re also involved in their own lives and loves, so off she goes into a world of casual dating. But what happens when the avowed spinster, the woman who has supposedly tucked her heart into a safe little space, suddenly realizes that her best friend Brian means more to her?
