All That Really Matters.

Molly McKenzie has made social media influencing a lucrative career, but nailing a TV show means proving she’s as good in real life as she is online. So, she volunteers with a youth program. Challenged at every turn by the program director, Silas, and the kids’ struggles, she’s surprised by her growing attachment. Has her perfect life been imperfectly built?

My Thoughts:

I just really, truly, deeply, from-my-soul loved this book.

I almost didn’t give it a chance because I didn’t think I would be able to relate to Molly at all. And at first, she certainly did make me feel some kind of way. But her growth throughout the novel is one of the most beautiful aspects of the whole story and I’m so glad I gave this book a chance! (Thank you again, Bookstagram, for influencing me. You did not lead me astray!)

There are just so many things I loved about this book, from the community of kiddos to the honest and vulnerable way Silas and Molly handled matters. The hope? The romance? The truth of God valuing us in all of our messy realness rather than the curated image of perfection we may try to present? *chef’s kiss* And I’m SO excited for All That It Takes to continue the story for some fun characters!

This one is golden and you certainly won’t want to miss it if you enjoy swoony contemporary romances with a ton of heart and great spiritual truths sprinkled throughout.

I received a complimentary copy of this novel from the publisher via NetGalley. All expressed opinions belong to me.

Book Boyfriend:

I want a Silas for Christmas. Sweet heavens, he’s good. Hard on himself and on others, but it comes from such a good place. And he’s actively striving to become more emotionally healthy. AND when he loves, he loves for real. “Love lives in the hard places with us because that’s what sets it apart. That’s what makes it love.” I MEAN, COME ON. *cue all the heart eyes*
