Alex Jennings is done with life. After losing her brother in Afghanistan, everything has collapsed around her. Getting laid off from her day job and failing in her art career, she has nowhere left to turn. She once had faith to believe that all things would work together for good, but that faith died with her brother. Now she just wants the pain to end.
Riley Conrad served thirteen years in the military until three bullets sent him home. After a year and a half of physical therapy and scraping together a living, all he wants is to live a simple life and perhaps even open the coffee shop he dreams about. However, the weight of failing his parents’ expectations doesn’t make it easy, and working as a bartender isn’t getting him anywhere fast.
Could a “chance” meeting between Alex and Riley set them both on the path God always intended?

My Book Review
What an outstanding and feel-good-in-the-end book! Two characters, both living a life other than what they had planned, both struggling emotionally. One who's lost her job and a loved one, one who's been a Marine and done multiple tours of duty in Afghanistan. Both hurting yet meet by 'chance'. Jaye Elliot did a fantastic job of setting up the perfect story then setting it on it's up and down trajectory. Alex and Riley are so loveable and they move the plot along rather than the plot moving them. I adored their love story and how they were able to help each other and the faith that finds it's way back into their hearts.
There is a serious plot twist towards the end that could make or break the story and hearts. Jaye did a beautiful job with this and kudos for focusing on such a common and painful issue. I highly recommend this book to all lovers of Christian Contemporary Romance lovers!
I received this complimentary book upon request and am leaving my review voluntarily. All opinions are my own.
