Karin Reid has never had much use for God. There’s been too much pain in her life for her to accept that God is anything other than, at best, disinterested or, at worst, sadistic. Until she meets Jason Garcia. After his own mistakes of the past, Jason is committed to dating only Christians. He decides to bend his rule for Karin, as long as she comes to church with him. As their friendship grows, both will have to decide if they’ll accept the path God has for them, even if it means losing each other.

My Review:

This was book 3 in the "God Grant us Grace" series and just like the other two this was a quick read, but a great one. With well established characters that are emotional,defined and approachable with real life problems and issues that are easily to relate to. Elizabeth did a great job of weaving together how our past pains, hurts and disappointments effect our current relationship with God and how getting the adequate healing can restore that broken bond we all need. I loved the way she distinguished characters that were believers and nonbelievers and how their fruit in life stood out and separated them more than anything. What really stood out to me in this book was the genuineness of the Christians that are placed in the life of Karin. They are real people with real problems and have a true, deep and personal relationship with Christ, but they are honest, clear and concise and the kind of people you want around you.

I  highly recommend this contemporary romance book for those who are struggling with their faith and acceptance of God into their lives.
