(The True Love Series #1)
- Tender Love
After her long-term relationship falls apart, Tessa Scott is left questioning God’s plan for her life, and she’s feeling vulnerable and unsure of how to move forward. Ben Williams is struggling to keep the pieces of his life together after his wife of fourteen years walks out on him and their teenage son. Stephanie, Tessa’s housemate, knows the pain both Tessa and Ben have suffered. When she is inadvertently instrumental in setting up a meeting between them, there’s no denying that they are drawn to each other, but will that mutual attraction do more harm than good?
Can Tessa and Ben let go of their leftover baggage and examine their feelings in order to follow a new path? Are they really prepared for the road ahead, regardless of the challenges? Will they trust God to equip them with all they need for this journey?
“Tender Love” is Book 1 in “The True Love Series”, a clean and wholesome Contemporary Christian Romance set in sunny Queensland.
Tender Love, written by Juliette Duncan, is the first of The True Love Series. Duncan has once again given us a great read! My favorite character is Ben. He’s a guy who’s been hurt to the core of his being…He is holding on by a shoestring and yet still keeps going. I found this quote in the book and thought it was extremely inspiring…“You can’t allow past victories to validate you. You can’t allow past failures to define you. God says to ‘forget the former things; do not dwell on the past.’…You can’t do anything to change them. Instead, God offers you hope and forgiveness, and a fresh chance to start over.”—Pastor Petersen. I truly don’t want to spoil the story for readers…so I’m just going to say, it’s full of sadness, heartbreak, mending of hearts, hope, forgiveness and last but not least, love, happiness and romance. Recommended read! I was gifted this book in exchange for my honest review.
