Just a Little Faith

Amy J Norris
Contemporary Romance
Christian Romance

"If so, his looks must be what attracted others to him, because as far as Pax could tell, his conversation skills were clearly lacking."

Paxson is dedicated to two things: her job at Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, and her relationship with God.  Working with the ever-popular baseball player, Sebastian Quinn, is not her idea of a good time, but it's good for the charity.  Though Seb isn't what she was expecting.  And he seems to be interested in her.  But Pax won't give up her dedication to God for a pretty face, and Seb certainly has one to go along with the sweet guy he keeps hidden.  Seb doesn't trust women, not since his wife left him years ago.  And he certainly doesn't believe in God.  It's Pax he can't get out of his mind, something he hadn't planned on.  Soon, though, his life will take him down other roads he never conceived that he would have to travel.  Can he make it through alone, or will He reach out to Pax, and God, for help?

My Opinion: This was an interesting read, though depressing a bit too often for my tastes.  The book focused much more on the Christian angle than the romantic angle.  Tragic events and dealing with the present took over the book.  The romance, though there, definitely took a back seat to the story of coming closer to God.  Sebastian had some non-relatable reactions to things, and Pax had little flair to her personality.  Though it was realistic in dealing with the harsh events of life, it didn't make me smile, which is often a determining factor for a romance for me.  A need for a grammar edit was also distracting.  Overall a realistic and somewhat depressing Christian tale with a side of romance.

I received a free copy of this book to review.  No other compensation was given.  The summary and review are 100% my own.
