Aghhh, I can't even give this one stars!

I mean, for starters, I absolutely ADORE Rebecca St. James. Hers was the first concert I ever attended, and she's the artist I've seen most frequently in concert. (About seven times, I think?) So, I'm biased in that I love all things Rebecca St. James...

... until this book.

I understand, at least when I was big into her music in high school and early college, that Rebecca takes a huge platform in speaking on abstinence and purity -- so, I'm hoping she's just the name on the cover and that most of the actual writing was done by the "author" (of whom I've never read any books before this one...)

Basically, this is the story of a rich, pampered, self-righteous brat and her brooding, sketchy fiance and their struggles in the weeks before their wedding after she walks in on him "participating" in internet pornography.

The subject matter ... is fine. I love a great, moral Christian fiction selection --- but what I don't love are irritating jerks as my main characters.

And, boy were these two insufferable. Pages after pages were filled with bragging ramblings about how rich and prestigious and moral and educated these people were. Everything about them was just grating and annoying.

I got about 300 pages into this mess before I abandoned it. Since I received the book for the purpose of providing an honest review, I felt compelled to post something anyways.

If you love Rebecca St. James, give it a shot. If you have an extremely high tolerance for self-righteous characters, it may be worth your time.

Of course, just take all of this with a huge grain of salt. There is *always* the possibility that things got insanely better in the last little chunk of the book.... right?
