It all begins with a bad man. It always does. Lorenzo has his share of dirty secrets, and now his term is up. He has paid his dues. He is leaving a very different man, having seen God and chosen a new path.

Unfortunately for Lorenzo, there are a few people who have other plans for him instead. When offered the choice, he decides to stand firm on his decision. This means he is on the lam.

After a narrow escape, he collapses, having no idea what comes next. Jules appears at the perfect time and they

This story is centered around the forgiveness and grace of Christ! When Lorenzo leaves prison it didn't take long for his relationship and dedication to Christ to be put to the test! Being found by his former gang immediately I was encouraged to see his commitment to living outside the criminal world stand strong! When he ended up in the barn, shot, we began to see the true character of Jules come out as she tended his wound. They both had a past that gave them reason to doubt whether God would ...more

“Let’s trust that God has forgiven us – given us another chance to do things right.” “Another chance,” she whispered, nodding. “Broken, but not beyond repair.”

Beyond Repair, the third installment in author Rose Fresquez’s Eron Outsiders series, is a beautiful tale of redemption, forgiveness, and discovering God’s constant grace. This novel can easily be read as a standalone novel, but after reading Beyond Repair, now I want to go back and read the first two books in the series!

When making bad choice after bad choice, how can things change? Lorenzo has paid the price for his choices and wants to turn the page. While in prison, he meets the One who can make that possible. Unfortunately his past isn’t easy to escape…. well, the people in his past aren’t easy to evade.

Lorenzo now is free, but is he really? Can he overcome the people in his past? He learns that with G_d all things are possible, thus enters Jules into the picture who also has a speckled past. Their coming

Fleeing his pursuers to avoid returning to gang life, Lorenzo hid in Jules’s barn, shot and bleeding profusely. Jules found Lorenzo, took him in, and nursed him back to health. From then on, their lives, as they knew it, changed…
Though the protagonists’ pasts are thankfully not everyday-life occurrences, their feelings spoke to me. I cannot count how often I find myself unworthy of God’s love and grace. These emotions and the characters’ way to and with God made this story relatable. This is a t

I think this is the first book I have read by this author and I enjoyed it. The suspense wasn't quite as intense as I like and that is the only reason for 4 stars. This book takes us on a very exciting journey that I found very interesting. Most of the characters in this book do not have a relationship with God, they have lived through a lot of difficult experiences that made it impossible to believe that God would care about them. This story takes place in a decent size town where the people ar ...more

A sweet and satisfying read by an author I enjoy!

I love the character of Lorenzo. He is very helpful and special. I love his decision and determination to turn his life around.

Jules took a little more getting into. She is a faithful friend once you get past her barriers.

Eli and Skipper are great too. I would love to read more about them.

The book is a wonderful display of forgiveness and second chances. I’ll leave it at that, because I prefer not to leave spoilers.

This was a great story about romantic love and our Savior's love. The perfect love that can forgive and love endless. I love how these 2 who both felt broken and beyond repair, found forgiveness and love in the Savior. Great story.
I received an advance copy of this book from the author, but this is my honest opinion I give by choice.

This story has a lot of intrigue and mystery; but most of all, it tells of God's love and forgiveness. It doesn't matter how badly we are broken, God will forgive us. All we have to do is ask. If you are looking for a Christian romance, this is definitely a book to read. ...more

This book shows no matter how far gone we are, there is always hope. Our past choices don’t determine how we live today.

Lorenzo just spent years in jail and freedom is sweet until he ends up on the run from his old gang.

Jules doesn’t trust easily but when she finds a man bleeding in her barn she knows she has to help.

Can two broken people overcome the past to make a future? Will a newfound faith bring them together?

I loved this book!!! Jules and Lorenzo have both done things they aren't proud of. Jules decides to hide. Lorenzo is trying to live out the faith he now has in Jesus, and that means he's now running. When he stumbles into Jules life, they both realize that the other is someone they don't want to lose. But, how can they stay in each other's lives? Once they figure out that they love each other, and that God has accepted Lorenzo and is changing him, and can love Jules and change her, too, watch ou ...more

Revenge. When our heart is angry and we want to get even, we make some really bad decisions. Hands down.
In this book, it took going to prison, being shot, and ending up in the home of a woman with walls around her heart to bring two hurting people to each other and to a deeper relationship with God through Jesus.
This is Lorenzo and Jules' story.

Rose Fresquez has written a 5-star book. This is the story of Jules and Lorenzo. Lorenzo had been in a gang and he went to prison for seven years for a crime he did not commit. Now is the day he is getting out. Trevor Freeman, the detective who worked the case is the one to come and pick him up. Trevor tells him that he has gotten him a hotel room for three months and also a job that he is to start the next day. Lorenzo comes back to his room a few days later and something doesn't feel right. He ...more

Although this book can be read as a standalone, it is better to be read as part of the Eron series. To me this book was about finding God, forgiveness, redemption and ever lasting love. Lorenzo is released from prison because he is finally found innocent of the crime he was convicted for committing. The detective who helped prove him innocent also led Lorenzo to God and to learn that God would forgive him for all his past sins. While Lorenzo is trying to make a go of going straight, some members ...more

Thank You LORD fir grace and mercy! Despite the wrongs of his past while living the gang life, Lorenzo was able to turn his life around for good. We are often our toughest judge when that’s not our place. Neither is seeking vengeance. Jules helped mend more than his physical wounds. There’s nothing like Gods forgiveness and unconditional love. They both learned how great He is and obeyed the Gospel thru repentance and baptism. God brought healing and peace like none other to help them in living ...more

Broken but not beyond repair. I loved the theme of this book, that we’ve all made mistakes in our past and been hurt by others but that doesn’t keep us from Gods reach. Instead God wants to let us know He loves us and He wants to heal us. Lorenzo and Jules are a beautiful example of this theme, as we see God bringing them across each other’s paths so they can help each other heal. But can they be a part of each other’s future with Lorenzo’s unfinished business from the past. And will Lorenzo liv ...more

Lorenzo and Jules meet in her barn, both full of painful history and he had been shot by his old gang when he refused to come back to them after getting out of prison. She nurses him back to health and as they talk, thy realize that they both have had their emotions ripped apart and more. It takes one to understand one. They slowly start to open and have feelings again. So many twists and surprises come at them but their true friends ground them. Great ending to the story.

This book was about two broken souls who were not beyond repair. Lorenzo and Jules both had pasts they were trying to deal with and overcome so they could be the person that God wanted them to be. It was interesting how they met and how Lorenzo helped Jules find her way back to God and forgiveness. This was a touching story of love and faith. I received an advance copy of this book and I willingly chose to write an honest review.

A wonderful story that kept my heart pounding a bit as I was watchful of what would happen next. I liked the caregiver role and the banter between our mains. I really enjoyed reading this romance and watching our characters learn to cling to God and put away their pasts.

I received an ARC of this book and am voluntarily leaving an honest review.

This book reminds us that no one is beyond God's repair and salvation, that where sin abounds His grace is far more abundant. I enjoyed the story of Lorenzo, a former gang member, and Jules, who was reluctant to trust and believe. Their love story is so beautiful!

I enjoyed reading this well written story. Lorenzo wants to change his life for good since he became a believer of God in prison though the gang he was in has other ideas. Lorenzo ends up on the run from the gang and ends hiding in a barn with bullet holes. He is lucky enough Jules comes out when she does and finds him. How long can they be safe? Totally worth reading.
