Description of You’re Gonna Love Me

Who knew fate could twist a tragedy into a second chance at love?

Samantha Winters lives her life the way a good accountant should—measured, deliberate, and safe. After watching her father die in a tragic skiing accident, she decided never to allow risk into her life again. But she didn’t count on falling for Nick Chastain, who embodies everything she doesn’t want in her safely constructed world.

Against Samantha’s warnings, Nick plans a dangerous kayaking trip over spring break. Furious that he’s so careless with his life, she ends their fledgling relationship with harsh words.

Two years later, Samantha is desperately in need of a change. When she learns her grandmother has had an accident and is in need of a caretaker, Samantha quickly packs her bags and heads to Thunder Creek, Idaho. But nothing could prepare her for the surprise awaiting her in her grandmother’s hospital room . . . Nick.

With the charming backdrop of small-town friends, beloved cousins, and a whole church congregation rooting for them, can they set aside the disastrous ending of their first try at love? Has Nick changed enough to meet Samantha in the middle—and can she realize that a risk in love might be worth taking?

My review of You’re Gonna Love Me

A heart warming love story.

Samantha seems to be a loving, caring kind of person. It is so hard to watch her struggle with her faith. She clings to fear as though that is what sustains her instead of God. Everything has a place and everything has to stay in that place or it sets off alarms in her soul. She is so fearful of the ‘what if’s’ that she isn’t living the life God intends her to have.

Nick is so broken by his accident that he is afraid to give love a chance. He feels like he isn’t a whole man any longer, that it’s not fair to ask Samantha for a second chance when he’s not sure if he can be there for her.

The main characters are well developed and likable. The secondary characters are awesome. Idaho sounds like a beautiful place and Thunder Creek is the ideal small town.

I enjoyed this book so much.

If you like a clean, heart warming  romance, this is a book you will like.
