Aw, what a sweet contemporary romance! I always appreciate Hannah Foster’s gentle and clean romances, and this one isn’t an exception!
Characters: I enjoyed Annabelle probably the best out of the two characters – she was pretty sassy and emotional and dramatic, but that made her character quite clear and understandable. She could sometimes come off as a little insulting at times, but it seemed as if her insults were mostly in good fun or her own way of hiding her feelings. But by the end of the book, she had mellowed out a little bit, all the while keeping her fun personality! Cash was a super nice guy – I loved how gentle and thoughtful he was with Annabelle. They definitely made a good couple.
Writing Style/Plot: The overall writing style was quite well-done. It wasn’t overly poetic, and that worked really well here because it put the focus on the story. As for the plot, it wasn’t the most exciting book I’ve ever read, but I needed a relaxing read today. It was very much real-life where dramatic things were not happening every other moment, and we simply got to follow along with the characters.
Moral/Theme: This might’ve been my favorite part of the book! Both Annabelle and Cash really wanted to get married and love someone, but they both came to the realization that they had to put the Lord ahead of any person or relationship. That was just so beautiful! I loved when Annabelle realized her hope was in Jesus, not in a guy, and Cash admitted to Annabelle that he was worried he would put her before the Lord. We need more of this in romance books! Romance is beautiful and wonderful, but no person should ever be put before the Lord. No person should be expected to fully satisfy another’s desires – only the Lord can fully satisfy us! I absolutely loved this moral woven throughout this sweet story.
Overall, I enjoyed this clean, sweet romance story, and if you’re looking for a relaxing, truth-filled read, look no further! You won’t be disappointed. I’m looking forward to reading more by Hannah Foster!
