Battling mountain weather and the baby’s illness brings these two opposites together, but their own insecurities, their dead siblings’ secrets, and a jealous former boyfriend threaten their tentative bond.
Only the Lord and the Sacred Bond Brotherhood can help Kendra and Zeke form a family for their baby.

I first heard of this book from a post the author did here. After reading the post, I thought, now there’s an author I can get behind because she doesn’t use her faith to limit her writing, but instead to enhance her writing. Then I downloaded the first free book of the series and saw the kid on the cover. You all know my thoughts on kids bringing people together….so yeah…I waited almost a month before actually reading it. Well, I didn’t need to. My thoughts:
What I liked:
Zeke. I liked who he was, what he was about, and the actions he took. He’s a man who runs a big business, makes a lot of money, but loves God very much. He got sidetracked for a minute, but once he made up his mind to put God first, he went all the way. Zeke also comes across as very real and very straightforward in a way I like.
Real Issues. I like that the author tackles the very real issue of chemistry and attraction and the right way to act on it.
The romance. Initially, I felt like the way Kendra and Zeke come together has been done a thousand times, but the writing felt fresh. I liked that Zeke was years older than Kendra, and that Kendra wasn’t a complete pushover and that no one came up with the idea that they should get married to raise the child. The baby was there, but she wasn’t exactly the reason Zeke and Kendra fell for each other.
Easy reading. I read this book so quickly and it was a light and fun read that had me turning the pages.
Spiritually, the novel deals with trusting God when everything seems to fall apart and it also shows what a life looks like that relies on God daily.
What I didn’t like:
For the most part I did like Kendra, but sometimes she would act or do something and then expect Zeke to think the opposite. There are no mind readers here! It just felt like she needed to grow up some. But again, once she gets it together, she’s a fine heroine.
Romantic Scale: 8
Overall, a very good, entertaining read and I hope to get to the other books in the series soon!
