    Liked it

    When reading through reviews I saw one that complained this book was "full of religious claptrap." That rude comment made me decide to see for myself so I got the book. I found it to be a sweet, well-written love story. The characters were likeable, and yes, they spoke from time to time about their belief in God. This included discussion about praying, scripture, and a general belief in providential guidance. If you're a believer it wasn't over the top at all. If you're agnostic or athiest you won't appreciate it, but you don't need to be rude about it.

    The book is part of a series, but it ended conclusively so you could read this one (which was free at this time) and skip the rest without feeling as though you stopped in the middle of the story (a huge peeve of mine). However, kudos to the author for making me enjoy the characters enough to pay $5.99 for the next book.

    Great read, a cute and funny romantic comedy. It's inspirational as Hannah and Drew find each other in their careers as professional photographers but their spiritual selves as well. I didn't realize until I got into the book that this is a sequel to Fools Rush In which I read a long time ago. I totally loved the fact the story went on with Bella and the original characters were updated. I now have to go back and purchase the other books in this series.

    I don't understand the negative reviews because some deemed it a Christian romance. If you're looking for a funny & witty romance this is your book. The writing is wonderful, there are a few references and questions as each searches their hearts. I've read Christian romances and I personally do not believe this falls in that category. Please do not rely on the 1 and 2 ratings because of a reference of God as your basis to ignore this work. I probably would have rated as a 4 but gave it a 5 to counteract the ratings that did not truly rate the quality of the writing or the story.

    It's a classic romance, and I love how the author intertwines God so much in it. I'm a sucker for a sappy story like this one.

    I love reviews from non-Christians/Atheists because the more they hate a book the more the more inclined I am to buy.
    Please keep on recommending these books by hating them so much.

    Great feel-good book

    The story reminded me how great a gift life is, how I shouldn't forget to thank God for all the blessings He has given me, and never take my loved ones for granted. Love is truly the greatest gift.

    NO!!!

    This book was so not my favorite! Hannah drove me crazy with her self pity. Yes I understand the book is about her finding herself, and coming closer to god...but seriously all she does is complain for pages, and pages. Then she talks to a different character , and it starts all over again. I found myself so annoyed I was sighing out loud, and skipping several pages! Obviously I don't recommend this book!

    Amazing and witty romance between two so called rivals.

    Hannah and Drew were simply fantastic characters. They liven up the story, making it worth the read.

    Couldn't continue

    I should have read the reviews . I don't mind the occasional reference to God but all those quotations go to be a bit too much. If thats what I wanted; I would read the good book myself. That's y I cannot read any more.

    Love love

    I am loving this book. I read fools rush in which is the book about Bella. I think you should read that book before reading this one. Also I am from Texas 35 mins from Galveston island. I like being able to picture the exact places. Great book so far.

    Disappointing

    Coukd not finish. I am a Christian but this was too obvious. It should have been under Christian romance. Even though the endings of romances are predictable, I still enjoy the journey and this was just way too forced.

    Wrong Catagory

    This book needs to be placed under christian romance. I could not even finish it, too many references to God and bible quotations. Give me a break...who references God that much in their everyday conversations?
