The YA Bookshelf,
This review is from: Hidden Under Her Heart (Contemporary Romance) (Chance for Love Book 2) (Kindle Edition)
This is the first book I've read by this author in fact; before Rachelle offered me this ARC (in exchange for an honest review) I had never heard of her meaning that when I started this book I didn't really have any expectations which turned out great really because I enjoyed this book immensely.
Saying that though this is going to be a short/mini review because the book focuses mostly on Lucas and Maryanne so there's not much else to write about without sounding like I'm repeating myself.
Rachelle has pulled off the impossible or should I say the not so possible. What is it you ask? She's managed to bring back the good guy (and make us like him) in a time where most books and people prefer the bad boy. Lucas is sweet, genuine and an out & out nice guy. You can't dislike like him, trust me at one point or another you will find yourself thinking "Awwww! What an adorable guy!"
Although I will say this, there were times when I thought Lucas was too good. He never really got mad even when there were times where I thought he should have got angry. Where anyone would have got angry, it was unrealistic.
The path to Lucas and Maryanne's love/relationship was not smooth by means. They were so on again, off again that I found myself thinking "will they EVER get together?" This is one of the things I rate this book for. It's not all fairy tales and princesses in real life and the book shows this. If you think about it, it was just the right thing to do for this book it fits perfectly.
For me, this was the first book I read in the religious fiction genre and to be honest the amount of religious references was overwhelming. Of course this could be because I had no idea there would be any religious references in it. That doesn't mean I wouldn't have read it if I had known, I'd just like to have been more prepared for them instead of feeling I was being ambushed (no offence).
Would I recommend this book to other readers? Yes. Despite everything it's an enjoyable read with lovable characters.
