Those who don't learn from the past are doomed to repeat it. When Nina Wallace made the crucial decision to leave the past where it belongs - in the past - her reward was new love with the man of her dreams. However she quickly discovers just because she's done with the past it doesn't mean it's finished with her. Love doesn't come easy and sometimes you have to fight for what you want. When hard times come will Nina determine the love and happiness she's found with Roberto is worth fighting for?
After the first book, I was really excited to read the follow-up and the author did not disappoint!I loved when Nina and Roberto had to go through marriage counseling in their church, they brought up some very good points that people about to be married should think about. Nina has a breakthrough in this one, which exposes her issues. There are love scenes in this book. I don't want to give anything away, but temptation between them is strong. They literally enjoyed playing with fire. I also loved the part in the book when Roberto gets real, yes, real. I won't tell you what he does, but when you get comfortable with your significant other, you start to be your true self. The perfect romantic fiance does something no one expects. If you expected him to be sweet throughout this whole book, it would not make a good story, and Zena Wynn can write a good story! The only criticism that I have is that this pushes the boundary of edgy Christian fiction. This is very, very edgy. If you are looking for "Love Comes Softly" or "Once Upon a Prince" this is not it. This is modern and true-to-life.
I was given a free copy of the audiobook to review, but long before that I was a fan of this Christian romance novel. I don't listen to many audiobooks, but I took a chance on this one because of the unique way the story is narrated. Most audiobooks are narrated by one person, and even in the few cases where there are two narrators (male/female) the speakers simply alternate chapter to chapter. This audio recording is different. In each chapter, all the dialogue is spoken by the two lead characters and it makes for a much more engaging listening experience. I haven't come across many audiobooks that do that. I love Roberto's accent. I think his performance makes the audiobook stand out. Great narration!
From the explanation of why the narrator changed at the beginning till the end, I have nothing but good things to say about this book. Well read, Loved the voice of Roberto. Appreciated the attention to detail of the other characters voices. Truly worth the credit. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.
