While it was an ok read overall, a few things irked me about Chris and Marli's story. I didn't like the fact that it was only after Marli realised Chris had a black family that she decided to give him a chance. I also felt the book was a bag of contradictions. For instance, Marli chewing off her friend's ear about her sleeping around. Then turning around and messing around with some strange man in a hotel room. Ok, she did come to her senses and didn't sleep with him, but I thought it was reckless behaviour. Plus, she drank even knowing she was pregnant. Her initially not telling Chris she was pregnant, yet she made a big song and dance about him not telling her he was stinking rich was also hypocritical IMHO.
I also felt that the author paraphrasing some details that I feel are central to demonstrating the level of chemistry between the H and h was a big letdown. The author built us up to expect oof the chain sparks but suddenly went coy, skimming over the details through which we could judge for ourselves the full extent of tChris and Marli's attraction, taking away some of the enjoyment. Chris taking off when the going got tough without first discussing it with Marli was also a low point for me.
I really liked Chris, especially in the first half of the book. I thought he was funny, affable, flirty and so charmingly confident. I would recommend this book to fans of Christian romance, those who prefer a clean read.
Overall, if you're looking for a wholesome story about love without all the explicits and grittiness, this is a story you could recommend to others without any reservations.

In what has become Ms. Thompson's signature thematic style, readers can be sure that Marli rises from the ashes to triumph. But not before going through some soul-searching and experiencing some hard-hitting truths.
Readers who've ever felt unworthy and unlovable because of their weight will find redemption in this book! in the unfolding of this story, Ms. Thompson teaches us that big girls deserve love too. If you're looking for a wonderful weekend read, I highly recommend this book!
Marli is a single mother. She's capable at work, a good mother to her daughter, but her personal life is a mess. Her upbringing is partially to blame. Her parents have their own ways of belittling her, and its easy to see why Marli is not the confident woman she should be.
Without giving too much of the storyline away, I will say that I was put off by the way Marli treats
Chris. It seems that she only accepts him because he was brought up in a black family. I had the feeling she wouldn't have spoken to him at all otherwise. Later, Marli says she no longer "sees" Chris' color. I cringed a little.
As the story goes on, a crisis causes tension, and a reaction from Chris that is abusive at worst, selfish at best. But somehow, the author manages to deliver forgiveness and happily ever after.
Marli was very hesitant about entering into an interracial relationship but Chris' persistence won her over and they fell in love. She'd had a difficult life prior to him entering in it, but he did all he could to assure her that he was there to stay. But Chris made one false step and in her fragile state, it was one too many and Marli was ready to back away from the best thing to ever happen to her.
I could never do this story justice in a short review. If you've ever read an Adrienne Thompson, then you know that this is not just another love story. She puts her heart and soul into each book. But if you have never experienced her brand of writing, I highly recommend this book to start. But don't stop with this one, they all will enhance your perspective on love.
