Overview

THIS TIME WITH LOVE is book 1 in the Christian romance series The McKinleys by bestselling author, Kimberly Rae Jordan. Follow the stories of Eric, Brooke, and Victoria as their present lives are impacted by decisions and events in their past. This heartwarming Christian romance series of love, faith and family is sure to inspire and move you. 

Six years ago, a new found faith changed Anastacia Stapleton’s perspective on her life and relationship. When the man she is living with refuses to consider marriage, she knows she has to end things with him. Realizing that she can’t continue to live the way she has in the past, Ana runs away from LA and its temptations to the one place her boyfriend had said he’d never go. Minneapolis, Minnesota. As Ana Stapleton becomes Staci Moore, she feels secure in the life she has created for herself and the child she hadn’t realized she carried when she left LA. 

Eric McKinley had abandoned the faith of his childhood when he was still in his teens, but after enduring a life-changing trauma, he finds himself once again turning to God. This change of heart prompts him to return to the family he’d become estranged from years ago. Though he thought he had put Ana Stapleton and his feelings for her firmly in his past, Eric realizes nothing could be further from the truth when he runs into her at a singles retreat over the New Year. 

Coming face to face with Eric and the emotions of their past relationship has Staci contemplating another disappearance—hopefully before he learns of the child she never told him about. Six years and many counseling sessions later, Staci knows that what she and Eric shared in the past had been anything but healthy. Even as she tries to resist his presence in her life, her heart is drawn to him once again. She can see the changes in Eric, but Staci is scared of reverting back into the person she’d been when they had been together. 

As Eric learns about the depth of pain Staci endured as a result of their relationship, he tries to make things right, but will it be enough to help her trust him again? Or will his role in her life never go beyond father to the child they share together?

The author has an unrealistic view on how long healing a relationship takes. She had things happening in days that would really take months if not years. The ending is very abrupt.

I love the lessons taught through out this book. Sometimes it was frustrating to watch Eric and Staci not seeing the love they each had for the other. But God's plan brought them together in ways they could not do for themselves or each other. A Beautiful and real life like story.

Just missing something. Rather boring and slow. Somewhat depressing also. Not sure why. Finally skipped ahead to the end.

This story is about two people brought together after six years to continue their relationship now being christian- this time with love not mere attraction

I have only read 60 pages, enough for me to put this book away. Evidently, no one proofed or spell checked it. There are so many errors in grammar, tenses, and puncuation it is distracting. Even the story drags, and the experiences of the characters are so broken up. Not planning to finish this book, or read any more by this author.
