Jewel Trilogy Book 1
Robin has had a horrific childhood. As the eldest she considers it her responsibility to take care of her two younger sisters. She's working two jobs when she meets Tony. Their second meeting convinces her that he is just like every other man out there. But slowly Tony inches his way into her life and changes her mind about him, about God, and about her future.
The story started out quickly and grabbed my attention immediately. Unlike most of the fiction I've read recently this is real and often times raw. But the characters were likeable despite (or maybe because of) their flaws. I enjoyed how the author presented the gospel and the message of salvation. Both characters had a story of redemption in their spiritual and physical lives. My only complaint would have to be Tony's behavior at the very beginning. I wasn't comfortable with him agreeing to have sex with Robin knowing as a Christian that he had no intention of following through. I felt he should have been honest with her. But that tiny detail aside, I really enjoyed the story and look forward to reading the next books in the series.
I received this book free of charge from Book Fun in exchange for my honest review.
