Overview

After a night of passion with bad boy Detroit nightclub owner Dino Cochran, Nikki Lucas finds herself young, pregnant, and deeply in love. But when she discovers that the man of her dreams is married, she is devastated and leaves Detroit without looking back.

Sixteen years later, Nikki lives in Monroe, Florida, a struggling single parent of a rebellious teenage son. She is also the owner of an equally struggling diner. Although her friends urge her to give her life to Christ, she is too steeped in bitterness over the harsh hand life has dealt her to believe that salvation will make any difference.

Dino Cochran, who suffered through his own horrors when Nikki left Detroit, arrives in town, not as the bad boy nightclub owner he used to be, but as the Christian head of the National Council of Churches. When he and Nikki meet by chance for the first time in sixteen years, Nikki's world turns upside down. Her son believed that his father was dead, and Dino never knew that he had a son, and now Nikki is terrified that both will hate her when they find out the truth.

    Excellent!

    The storyline is intense and thrilling at the same time. You will want to complete the book in one setting. Hopefully, you will have the time....

    Redeemed

    For whatever reason, Dino Cochran was always protective of eighteen year old Nikki Lucas when she was selling tapes outside of his nightclub. Nikki had such a crush on bad boy Dino that it led to a one night stand with the married businessman/gangster.

    Dino having suffered through the deaths of his pregnant wife and friend found himself near the breaking point when the corner preacher, Billy Graham saves him from a true life of crime.

    After sixteen years, Dino is now Bishop Walter Dean Cochran and Nikki now living in Florida with her sixteen year old son cross paths when Dino has to vist one of his churches in the Florida city of Monroe. Divine intervention or what?

    Nikki's son is accused of murder and as in the past, Dino is there to provide help to her while standing up to church members that don't want to accept the changes he is making. Although, having turned his life around Dino still has some "rough around the edges" ways when it comes to having to deal with Nikki and other characters in the story.

    This was such a great read that I will surely make it a top recommendation for my book club and to readers looking for Christian romance with an urban twist
