This book surprised me and I absolutely loved it! I’m not a love triangle girl. I don’t like that there’s a “loser”, that it feels like two people are competing for love. (It’s a large reason why I don’t watch The Bachelor or The Bachelor-type shows. Don’t kill me. I just want us all to have love and be happy, people!) But thankfully, this book delivered so much more.
I loved the characters in this book so much. Each one felt . . . real. Everyone was struggling with something, and Gray did an excellent job of not sweeping the hard feelings under the rug and tying it all up with a pretty Christianese bow. The characters feel things and they feel them strongly. Gray acknowledges that wrestling can not only co-exist alongside faith, but can actually strengthen faith.
There’s humor. There’s a good dose of heart. And the romance is perfectly paced, not too soon or too late. All around, this is just a wonderful book and I can’t wait for the next one!
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher. All expressed opinions belong to me.

Dillon. I cannot tell you how many times I highlighted and made notes along the way, saying I loved Dillon and I wanted one for Christmas. He is wonderful and honest and caring and rough around the edges, like Luke from Gilmore Girls. Oh my goodness, and now I love him even more. Don’t send help. I’m fine.
