Paige Hall’s happy ending may just be in sight. She has been dating her boyfriend for months and feels confident their relationship is going in the right direction—until she catches him kissing another woman. Humiliated and hurt, Paige retreats from the dating scene and pledges to never fall hard again as she throws herself into her work as a speech therapist. Her vow is upended in a grocery store parking lot when she is nearly run over by a handsome and very apologetic air force pilot.
Captain Jake Summers is everything a girl could dream of: charming, considerate, and hardworking. Despite Paige’s determination to avoid falling into another relationship, her resolve is no match for the whirlwind romance that ensues. When Jake is not flying, he and Paige are inseparable, and Paige begins to believe in happily ever afters again. But when the couple faces a heartrending loss, they must find strength in each other and in their faith or risk losing a once-in-a-lifetime love.
I love the cover for this book. I think it is a fantastic representation of what lies inside and it's also pretty.
This book was character driven which was perfect because Paige and Jake are great characters. The conflict was mostly internal as Paige and Jake deal with their own insecurities and doubts. Family relations are a big part of this book as well. It all seemed very normal and realistic. Their feelings and struggles seemed like those anyone and everyone might experience. I liked that. Both characters show growth and change which is satisfying as a reader.
There are no great climactic, heart pounding moments in this book. It all felt very gentle and sweet which was perfect for me this week when I read it. With the world in so much turmoil right now, gentle and sweet feels really good.
