    BLEH

    Did NOT like this book at all....it mentioned "christians" and thought it would be a good short Christian fiction story book but when it got to the sex description I felt like I was watching a Christian movie with graphic sex scenes (which should not happen). DO not reccomend this book at all. Took it off my nook....:P No wonder it was FREE

    Short but....

    This story was cutely uplifting and very short 66 pages on my nook,however it could easily be transformed into a much longer book just by adding details from before and after the climax of the story......and yes there is a detail sex scene..... but if your not mature enough to handle some "steamy" details..refrain from reading romance books and stick to the subdued and ever famous "chicken soup" chain.

    Not so great...

    I got this book because it looked fun! I got not even half way through & had to quit reading. There's an explicit bedroom scene... It had the potential of being such a fun story. Why does a love story have to involve graphic sex scenes?? Didn't like it...

    Excellent

    Loved the story. To those that thought the sex scene waa too much - go to any book store and you will find more sex books within marriage in the Christian section than anywhere else. God created the beauty of sex within marriage and this book did NOT stray from it. I found it endearing and honest. Especially, the nervousness and apprehention of wedding night consumation from a virgins woman's view.
    I do hope the author writes a follow up book on their lives and children. This author writes with utmost honesty and feelings in this story. I very much enjoyed.
    Some will say it not 'realistic' but in this world of technology it is for many couples. Also, throughout history, there have been successful arranged marriages. More than 5 stars from me as it was a refreshing change into reality as it is today.

    Excellent read

    This was a great read. I read some of the comments and i must say before the book began the author pointed out how this was an adult read not a christian read. The story was based on a women who had christian beliefs but it does has some rated R parts. Defentially worth the read and besides it free!!!!

    Not pleased

    Story plot was okay. Story too short. Graphic details of their lovemaking story were not needed. I was disgusted. This book was sent to me through Lend-me. I will not recommend.

    A Good Love Sto

    This story is a a nice romance based on realistic hard working people from small towns looking for that person to have a family with and not sure they every wil. There was a sex scene, but it was their wedding night. I found it refreshing to read a good clean story that still had some spice to it. Just because a person goes to church and is a believer doesn't mean they can't still be a passionate person and share that love and passion with their spouses. This story shows this by how they meet, get to know each other, g ggetting married, and sharing that love and passion after marriage.

    OMG - The sex was within the marriage, and it was only one scene

    OMG - The sex was within the marriage, and it was only one scene. She was a virgin in her 30's, was nervous and her husband was patient with her. I thought it was a quick, sweet read. The main character's were written nicely, that you felt you knew them. (ljb)

    Not too bad..

    Although its short, and in a part, very graphic, I thought it was okay. It wasn't the best book I've read, but definatly not the worst. For being free, it was probably one of the better books. I wouldn't recommend, but also wouldn't say to not read.

    He is not worth it

    The story was okay and the plot moves along quickly. But, I wanted to kick the male character for inviting the lady to his house and not bothering to clean. And he is to cheap to take her somewhere nice for a honeymoon. Oh he pissed me off. Good thing this was free.

    Not for me at all

    This book was a waste. The woman needed some confidence and the man was a sexist pig. The sex scene didnt bother me, but the man pushing her into it did. He seriously says hes not willing to wait, i wanted to jump in the book smack him then smack her for taking it.
