Christian Contemporary Romance

He has everything … except what he wants most. 

Rory is a wildly successful contractor with all the right connections. He has everything, except the woman who sees past his missing foot. If only the tiny redhead he’s insanely attracted to would go on a date with him, it could work, but Vi refuses. 

Licensed massage therapist Vi Summers needs her childhood home remodeled, and Rory Spence is the perfect man for the job. Only he’s the last person she wants to work with. Despite Rory’s reputation as a flirt, his tender attention to getting her house right helps Vi see into his heart. Too bad her past mistakes prevent a future relationship. 

Drawn together like magnets, they navigate trouble with illegal squatters, family expectations, and fire. Will they finally be honest with each other, or will their secrets tear them apart?

My Thoughts

This is my first book by this author and although I am not quite finished yet (I have 3 more chapters to go!) I have really enjoyed this story. This is the second in the series and I must admit that I think it would have been great to have read the first one to get to know these characters just a bit better. Towards the beginning of the book I felt a little lost at meeting so many characters without knowing a little bit more on the background. As you continue reading you do catch up but still I think I will try to find the first one so that I can know more about them. 

This story we learn more about Vi and Rory. They both come from somewhat similar backgrounds. They both share a knowledge in grief but Vi has suffered abuse as well. Vi was a hard character to get connected to. She feels self centered at times and is so closed off that it was hard to truly make a connection to her. Rory is fantastic and so likable. Both together made great interactions and made their relationship growth worthwhile throughout the story.

Overall I have really enjoyed the story and can't wait to see what happens in the end! If you are looking for a good clean contemporary romance I definitely recommend this series!
