Hello again, savvy savers! Tonight finds us with another book review, and this time its Hidden Under Her Heart, by Rachelle Ayala. This book centers on Maryanne, a woman estranged from past relationships, and believes that she must engage in a life of celibacy in order to turn her circumstances around. This is an admirable life, until she meets Lucas, a patient at the allergy clinic from which she works, who despite his immature trappings, is a man who embodied both the life she seeks to move away from, but also the qualities she has longed for in a equitable partner. Soon Maryanne’s need to have a man validate her life, begins to overtake her new planned celibacy, and she finds herself dealing with self-denial and an overwhelming, and unhealthy, need for his love.
The book then goes onto tackle issues of pregnancy, guilt, realization, and Christian-themed perceived legalities. From a realistic perspective, the themes of this book move quicker than true-to-life relationships should, but in the genre of Christian romance, they would appear to be spot-on, for those interested in the above mentioned themed.
As well, the book is currently listed for .99 for the e-book at both Smashwords, and for that reason is well worth the read!
Her’s to summer reading!
