Shelter Me

Shelter Me by Mina Bennett

I was really thrown for a loop with this book.  First off it should have been classed as NA religious not just NA.  Then the blurb really didn’t match the book. 

The idea was interesting, but the follow through was definitely a miss.  I felt this book drug on and on and on.  I stopped and started over and over.  Finally after a few good books I went back and powered through this one.  I can’t really give a non bias review because I didn’t like it.  I do commend the author for her effort.

I think that this book was supposed to be an epic coming of age story, but flopped.

On a brighter note, the cover is good.  But it does not fit this book.


He's the only thing she has left to believe in...

Marissa was the first person to break Jacob's heart. When they were children, she made it very clear that she wanted nothing to do with him. She didn't mean to, but her mother had ordered her to stay away from her Sunday school crush: "He's a nice boy - don't you ruin him." So she kept her feelings hidden, telling herself that no matter how sweet he seemed, he'd still end up turning on her, like everyone else did.

Jacob never loved anyone like he loved Marissa. He knows he should try to forget about her, especially now that he's engaged and she's happily married - or so everyone says. Even though they've grown and gone their separate ways, in their tightly-knit community, that still means seeing each other at every Sunday service, church picnic and backyard barbecue. He swears that her eyes still have that sad, haunted look, but he manages to keep his distance.

Until one night, when everything changes.

With Jacob's relationship in shambles and Marissa pushed to the breaking point, they're drawn together by an unstoppable force. Temptation is irresistible. Giving in is unthinkable. But it soon becomes clear that nothing - neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation - can keep them apart.
