When I first read this, I was a little hesitant. I decided to just go ahead and read it because it was a some what short story. I was shocked by how fast I was hooked. I could not put this down until I found out how it ended. I love this because it is about; faith, God, love, and family. It has parts that makes me smile, parts that make me sad for the characters, and it makes me anxious as to what is going to happen next. It is a very cute love story. I have already recommended this book to my friends and they loved it as well. There are parts that are a little mature, so this is definitely for older teens. READ IT! :)

Portrays an unrealistic, fantastical idea of love and sends the wrong message to teens, too (and I am one). I just hated this book. Like another reviewer said, it was cheesy, and the random resurgances of religious conversation truly annoyed me. I really hated how the book made two teenagers' love affair seem righteous. Oh, and it sent out the message that the age of consent shouldn't be upheld as well. It's not okay for an 18 year old guy to be with a 15 year old girl. Yeah. Not much else to say, except the book was quite poorly written as well. I caught around 5 typos. The cheesyness, unrealisticness, and bad message combined with the poor writing just make this book a loser. However, this book was just unacceptable to me. Good thing it was a free read. Yuck.

This book follows a tradition teenage boy meets teenage girl storyline, but it has an exceptional look into what marriage really means, the way sex really should be treated by everyone, and the wonders that God shows everyone who is willing to believe in Him and have faith that He gives more to those who trust in Him than they could ever imagine achieving on their own! The intimate scenes are just revealing enough to get the author's point across. This is a book for all teens and up, and everyone can enjoy a well written story as well as get a good message to use in their daily lives.

I am a teen and i like it alot i felt a lot of a connection towards it. If you are a teen this is a good book for, aspeically if u have a boyfriend or girlfriend and have temptations to do things.

<3 Loved it:) It was exactly what teenage love feels like and what a lot of teenagers go through... It talked about faith and steamy love all at the same time! It was a great mix of romance and religion and written very well... I would recommend this book and maybe even read it a second time It was an amazing book and great that it was free!!

i know this is a good book!!!! i am not a reader and for me it's so hard to find a romance book to keep tied in! i have never read a book so fast! i mean this book was so romantic and took my thinking and emotions to a whole new level. This book made me happy, it made me cry and tear, and it made me laugh! it had a verity of different things to keep you very interested! I love this love story because it was sweet and so powerful! any one who is a romantic like me should read this i garantee that you will fall in love with this book. Maybe you will find love like that.

I was unsure about this book and only downloaded because it was free but I must say this is great book. I can only speak for myself but when I finished this book I am still thinking about it. The author painted the story so clear and vivid. It seemed so real and definitely we can relate to as wethink back to that time in our lives. It left a good impact on me. I want to read more books like this. Trulyyyyyy a must read

i was very surprised when i started reading this book i didn't know where it was going to lead me. i wish this novel was out when i was 14 it would've made me look at love and physical relations a lot differently. at times there were moments that seemed unrealistic in todays society but the overall message about God and love made this book an absolute page turner and i even surprised myself when i read it cover to cover in one night.

Not a book I would let a teenager read if I wanted him or her to learn about God's feelings about sex and pure relationships. I think it sends the wrong message - as long as you're not doing 'it' everything else is ok. It tries to pass as a book about christianity. Joanna is supposed to be a christian and is constantly lying to her parents, getting naked, and doing everything but have sex. No one's perfect but come on - a little more self-control please. God has a plan, but this ain't it.

Where do i start?Amazing book. never read a book like that before out of the many books i have read. Inspiring! I never thought of life until i read this book and have been changed by it. one of a kind book!

This is a very realistic view of the temptations teens face in our society today. It shows how love can grow or be destroyed by unrestrained passion. It shows the appropriate venue for sexuality. It shows the beauty of sexual expression in a relationship that develops over time that is based upon love that is not selfish.

I thought it wasn't going to be good because it was free but I was wrong, I loved it. It changed my perspective on love, faith, and God. It was really religous but I could not put this down and was sad when I was finished I want there to be a seguel!!! Oh and it's free too!!

This was not at all what I thought it would be. But it was SO much better! I found the writing style enjoyable and the content even more so. I usually hate the overly Christian books because I feel like they're shoving it down your throat. I loved this one though because it felt more spiritual than religious and made me think instead of just preaching at me. Just enough sexual teasing to keep me interested...not enough to make me gag. Wonderful book!

very inspireing on marrage. and how sex should be viewed as unity and marrage before god. :)

Since this book is meant for teens, it can only be truly judged by a teen, and I really liked it. It sounded to me like the second or third book of a new author, one with a lot of talent. I can certainly relate to Joanna, and I like that the book isn't just about Zach and Joanna,but also about God and His true message.

I highly recommend this book to EVERY hopeless romantic girl out there. It will make u wish u were living the story has some sexual stuff but overall isn't too much detail with it. Lots of twists and turns which will keep u on the edge of ur seat

I really enjoyed this book. Even though it went into religion a bit, it was great how they mixed it without losing the reader. A great story that I wished I had read when I was younger because it makes you think about your first love.

This book was not at all what I thought it was going to be! It was better! A great book on testing the boundaries of love as a young teenager, and teaching the ways of the bible. If you have a teenager who is facing these same dilemas and trials, this is a great way to understand a more biblical argument.
