First I have to say that "Simplicity" was my first "win" in any contest or give away. So When Valia contacted me saying I won, I was ecstatic. And Valia is such a sweetheart. She's always on Twitter talking to her readers. She's such a down to earth and a funny person. I'll give her info at the end of the review.

Now I feel the first thing a person should know about this book is, that this book is a very spiritual book. It's a book about survivors and their faith in GOD and how their trials and tribulations never faulted their belief in their GOD. They believed that every thing happens for a reason and they never questioned as to why they were happening. Instead of complaining and wishing these things weren't happening. They prayed for strength to make it through another day. I loved it!

So in Simplicity, Alexis Sinclair was living the life she wanted. She had finally become manager of the West Coast Division on her company and she couldn't be more happier. But before she starts her position as manager, she had to take one more business trip. While on flight her plane was caught in a terrible storm and crashed. She ended up in an island with fifteen men. They all embraced her and taught her to live her life with just the simple things. While learning new things and adapting to her new life, she started falling in love with the one who rescued her, Jacob Peterson. A man who absolutely makes her emotions go wild.

But Jacob isn't giving into emotions and feelings. He has his reasons for holding back and he fears if he doesn't he'll hurt the ones he loves. Now with Sinclair on the island he has all these emotions surfacing that he thought he had under control. But he refuses to give into these new feelings. So he holds back and plays it safe. But while holding back and playing it safe, Sinclair is the one who keeps getting her feelings and emotions all mixed up.

Though Sinclair has lost her old life, in this new life she learns a lot more. She learns to open up to new people and learn how to live life without the every day luxuries we all are accustomed to. Always giving GOD the credit he deserves, thanking him and asking him for his strength. This story was such a sweet story. I read this story in three days. And every once in awhile, I like to pick up a book that reminds me of the blessings I have in life and to never forget to thank the one responsible for all good. If you're looking for a read that doesn't have to do with your every day crisis but focuses on what's important in life, such as love, friendship and survival then this is your book. I give this book a 5 out of 5 stars and a DEFINITE "Good Choice for Reading"
