The synopsis of this book pretty much says it all. This is not going to be a fairy tale romance. It starts out that way but things, like life. have a way of changing. Julia meets Bryce by chance and is quickly swept off her feet by this handsome, charming and confident man. Julia wants to please Bryce and is open to meeting his adopted family and attending Church services with him. This is where things get interesting!

Soon, with each small concession, Julia’s life begins to change…

This book is what I would call escapism reading. It was entertaining, and I enjoyed it. Will I be sitting around thinking about his book for months to come? No. But I did enjoy it while I was reading it and hence the 3.5 stars. I feel this book makes a great plane or beach book. I enjoyed how this story was told. I also enjoyed the italicized sections. Yes, they do break up the story a little, but I enjoyed trying to make sense of them and made guesses as to who each part was about.

Thank you to Penguin Group Putnam and NetGalley who provided me with a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. All the thoughts and opinions in this review are my own.
