I had been eyeballing this book for a while but only just got round to reading it. I had seen a lot of the rave reviews and was looking forward to reading it, but in the end, I was rather underwhelmed! First off, I wish I'd known it was a Christian romance of sorts because I'm not really into those.

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.

Your Love is King is a story about Marlena "Marli" Meadows, who is at a standstill in her life. Ever since her divorce from Tim, Marli fell into the everyday routine of working late shifts as a nurse and preparing her daughter, Tiffany for college. She frequently visits Darius, who is just a "friend with benefits." After Tiffany leaves for college, Marli realizes that maybe it's time to seek new goals of her own. After the urging of her best friend Carla, she moves from Arkansas to St. Louis, where meets musician, Chris King. I enjoyed the overall flow of the story, it was an easy read with enough spice to keep me up late at night turning the pages so I could see what happened next. I laughed at the light humor and nodded in agreement to the messages about forgiveness. While the story was engaging, at times it was conventional, and the dialogue during conflict seemed a little repressed and improbable. But, Adrienne breezes through the story so well that she gets away with it, especially for hopeless-romantics who get caught in the web of her overall creative storytelling.

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.

Your love is king. I cannot stop singing that song. What an enjoyable book. Marli and Chris. From the beginning I prayed their relationship would work. Marli so deserved it. When he left and she had news for him I thought that was the end of their relationship. Let's say I was not disappointed with the ending. Beautifully written and I love how the storyline captured me. This is an element of a book I look ford which leads to a good read. Read this book. I recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars BIG GIRLS DESERVE LOVE TOO 16 Nov. 2013
By mzcatjo - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Marlena Meadows, 33-year-old hefty, divorced mother of one, finds herself stuck in a humdrum existence. In an attempt to bury feelings of inadequacy and low self-esteem, instilled in her since childhood (thanks to a dysfunctional family environment), Marli tries to build her self-worth by living a life of promiscuity. Until she meets Chris King. Chris King isn't perfect, but he's the perfect person to challenge Marli's opinions about the way she views herself and interracial relationships.

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!

3.0 out of 5 stars Love and Misconceptions 21 Dec. 2015
By Lori Titus - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I had very mixed feelings about 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.

This is the I love journey of Chris and Marli. I really loved this couple. Chris was my favorite of the two was a real smooth operator. Chris is the eldest son of a reverend. He's tall finer than wine. He plays the trumpet in the band named after him he also sings in the band. And to top it off he's a praying man believes in God. Chris is also a smooth talker. But when He sees Marli for the first time. He knows he wants to meet her. However Marli has a damaged soul. She is a pretty plus size ER nurse. Both of her parents are professionals and I divorced and they mentally abused her. I really enjoyed their Journey. You will enjoy this book it had me talking to myself. LOL PS Chris is something else. Also this is interracial romance w/ a HEA ending.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love this Book! 20 Nov. 2013
By KarenRodgers-Editor - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is the deeply moving story of Marli and Chris as told by one of my favorite storytellers, Author Adrienne Thompson. I always take a steadying breath before I embark on a journey with this author because while I don't know where she's going to take me, I know it won't be a walk in the park. Your Love is King was no exception.

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.

This is my first book by Miss Thompson and it will not be my last. I read this book within 24 hours. I didn't want it to end. I truly loved Chris and how she portrayed him. He was a dream come true. Marli, I loved her character. She was resilient, strong and loveable in spite of her low self-esteem. I like how throughout the book you can see her evolution into the women she was meant to be. Her parents were down-right awful. Loved her friendship with her bestie Carla and will be purchasing that book now that I know she has a story to tell as well.
