Recommends it for: no one
I would classify this as in the top 5 worst reads ever. The plot itself would have been great: former outlaw turns his life around and becomes a lawman and falls in love, with a Christian theme.

This book is written so poorly. It reads like something done for 5th graders with simplistic language and dialog. The Christian references are WAY over the top, even for a believer like myself. The secondary hero of the book is so self righteous its almost embarrassing. I really don't have the words to e

Shelves: bin-worthy
As a Christian, I truly hope that no non-Christian never makes the mistake of picking up this book. Nearly every conversation John has with Whip consists of telling him he will burn in hell, whilst his conversations with Christians consist of such syrupy and stilted dialogue that I felt physically ill and had to skim-read through most of it. If I had paid money for it, it would be in the rubbish bin right now. I could go on, but it would all be negative. I will say this though - it has a nice co ...more
Story was pretty good. A little more religious reference than some other Christian Romances. I know have to find the next one in this story & I have found that there is a series for both main characters in this title so I will be getting those to learn some background to their lives.
