    1. ++Spoilers++4.5 starsA super sweet low anxiety read with a perfect hero and a perfect heroine.I wouldn't exactly call this a clean read because there are some very sensual parts, but the actual act itself is kinda glazed over, so it's borderline clean IMO.I really love super sweet romances sometimes even more so than erotic ones. I guess it depends on my mood. So if you like sweet & tender.pectful and pure this is for you.There is a little bit of religion in here, I mean it is about a preach [...]


    2. Since I rated this story so low I feel compelled to say why. I also did not finish the book, stopped about 75% the way through.The writing, pacing and characters are all good. There were no problems in this area of the book. The prologue was really difficult to read and I ended up skipping over that when I got the picture of what was happening. It's not graphic at all, but was still uncomfortable for me to read.Ben's mother was a prostitute who did not care about her children. Growing up Ben was [...]


    3. Decent but not real gripping. Not a lot of tension or conflict. The use of religion here was realistic about a preacher's daughter falling in love with a prostitute's son. He has tried so long to overcome his upbringing that he isn't sure how to have a normal relationship without feeling like it is something dirty and she helps him overcome all that. Still was not real riveting.


    4. Siento que estuve leyendo este libro por semanas, y puede ser, la verdad es que se hizo eterno. Lorabeth es la hija del predicador. Vivió toda su vida de manera reservada, sin grandes relaciones sociales, bajo un padre estricto. Trabajar para los Chaney le cambia la vida porque ve una dinámica en esa familia que la fascina. Si no me equivoco, debe llevar cerca de dos años trabajando para ellos cuando toma la decisión de irse a vivir definitivamente con ellos. Su primer paso para una vida so [...]


    5. Cheryl St. John is one of my favorite authors. She does not write often enough for m liking. I am always hoping to come across something new from her.I thought that I had read this book but maybe not. I found found Loarabeth and Ben to be pretty credible characters. I would have liked to see something more of the person that Lorabeth's father was other than the stereotypical religious extremist. I really enjoyed reading this story but I do reccomend that anyone else read the other in the series [...]


    6. Lorabeth Holdridge, daughter of a strict preacher, has been helping Dr. Caleb Chaney and his wife, Ellie care for their 4 children and Ellie's brother, Monday through Friday. Now Ellie is close to term with their 5th child and Lorabeth convinces her father to let her live with them full time. Her 2 mornings a week that she is free she goes back and does her father's cleaning and laundry. But Lorabeth is happy to be able to experience life and some freedom. Ellie's brother, Ben, a veterinarian, s [...]


    7. An endearing book about the daughter of a hard-core minister trying to escape her father's egregious strictures, and the young man who feels unworthy of her regard because his mother was a prostitute.


    8. Probably closer to a 3.5 rating,because the ending felt too rushed with no epilogue but I enjoyed this sweet story. Ben was so endearing, and Lorabeth was a perfect match for him.


    9. Pretty good. More tender than some of hers, but the plot and the characters make that fit. Nice to see the characters from my fave book of hers (The Doctor's Wife) later in life.
