synopsis

Sometimes us silly girls fantasize about things that never come to be. I had expectations after college—expectations to run off with Jake Larson and start our life together in a little Pennsylvania farm town. I had my happiness mapped out inside my head.
I didn’t expect to run into a strange, alluring man with a beard and dark hair stacked up on top of his head. I didn’t expect to be attracted to someone so—different. He was everything I didn’t know existed. He could make me feel things I’d never felt before. It didn’t seem possible that we could be together. We both had obligations. The world told us no, but we couldn’t stay away from one another, couldn’t deny that we were drawn together. He was so beautiful—so beautiful rugged. I was going to make him mine.

My Rating:

4.5 hearts

 

Favorite Quotes:

 

“Shoulds and wants… two things that seemed to now create a gigantic tug-of-war between my head and my heart.”

 

“A hot Amish guy.  Never thought those words would come out of my mouth.”

 

“I would trade it all, give up everything I own, even the shirt on my back, to be with you, Van.  You are more valuable than any of that stuff.”

 

My Review:

 

I adored this sweet love story and have a new favorite author.  This is my first time reading Sara Zook, who has a name that is just so much fun to say.  While this may have been my initial date with this author, it certainly won’t be my last as I was entertained from page one to the Epilogue.  She has blended the genres of New Adult and Amish, tossed in a little steam for flavor, and has created a delightful confection and I didn’t want to put down.  It was a breezy, comfortable and relevant read with likable and interesting characters.  I particularly enjoyed the sweet town librarian being a “worldly” woman to the Amish, just typing that sentence brought a smirk to my mouth, very clever Ms. Zook!
