Up until now, Nicole's life has been mapped out for her. She'd go to college, marry Jake and become the upstanding minister's wife. When she leaves that life to begin again in a small town in Texas, she finally has the freedom to live as she chooses. There, she meets Kent, a guy whose charm and passion make it hard to stick to her morals.
Dodging his father’s fists and protecting his twin sister made Kent into the man he is today. He learned by watching his mother stay by his father’s side that it’s better to keep relationships simple. Then he meets Nicole. Her sweet smile and genuine response to him land like punches to his resolve. After a lifetime of learning to protect his heart, can he finally let down his guard?
I Choose You is the second book in Author Bethany Lopez’s “Friends & Lovers” series. I really enjoyed reading it. I think what I enjoyed most about it is the fact that Nicole still had her innocence and it was nice to read a story that wasn’t overly sexual. I’m not saying there isn’t any sexual content because there is some but I was pleased that it wasn’t the main focus of the story.
I loved both Kent & Nichole’s characters and were familiar with both of them from the first book in this series, Make it Last, which is another great read.
This story could use a bit more editing, there are a few minor grammatical errors, but I was able to overlook them because the story was very enjoyable. I’m really looking forward to Roni & Rich’s story next. Trust in Me is due out in the Spring of 2013.
