Although this is a Christian romance book, the religion in it is not preachy, dramatic, or overdone. One of the better Christian books I've read, however it still had a few inconsistencies that took me out of the story.

In the beginning of the book, Lisa applied for a job as secretary for Matheson Telecom. She didn't like the job she previously had because her boss kept hitting on her even though he was married. But then Dylan asked in her interview if the job would interfere with a boyfriend. Th

Good story line about love and forgiveness.
Lisa and Dylan start off with lies and end up with forgiveness. Lisa is trying to clear her brother, Gabe's, name when she applies for a job at Dylan's father's company. Dylan needs a date for his sister's wedding and parent's anniversary party.
This book was a good read, although the plot was a bit unbelievable at times. The best parts of the story centered on the love found in the Matheson family, as well as Lisa's dedication to her brother.

One of the lessons I have taken from this book is that struggles - both internal and external - affect all people regardless of status, background, or family.
Lisa Sterling got a job working for Dylan as her boss under false pretenses. She deceived him but they both deceived his family. It wasn't supposed to happen but they fell in love with each other.
Will all the lies be forgiven? Love sure proved to be patient in this book.
Lisa and Dylan were really "made" for each other.
This was a great read.

A sister tried to find out why her brother was unjustly fired and ends up falling in love with her new boss.
I love it. It was hard to read through the deceit of the various family members, but it also made the book exciting and made me want to finish it. How was it all going to end?!? I enjoyed it very much.
I love this book - for some reason. I've read it at least 3 times. I think I like the way the heroine supports her brother, no matter what and despite her own wants.
Decent story, but not memorable. I visited Vancouver last year, so I enjoyed recognizing some places. I did want to shake the brother several times - quit whining!
This book really showed how Trust and Faith go hand in hand. Second chances are a must to enforce the Trust issue and you need the Faith to see it through.
Somewhat suspenseful novel, but not the best romance.
It is full of happy endings and sorrow.

I thought this book was wonderful.
