He's the only thing she has left to believe inMarissa 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 didJacob never loved Ok this was a first for me by this author and I am stunned Not a perfect book but it still enthralled me from cover to cover Mark was an absolute creep but Im still trying to figure out why the town put such an emphasis on Mari being a troubled kid Nice story I would read by this author and yes I would recommend it

Shelter Me

H 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 Verse uoted is taken from THE HOLY BIBLE NEW INTERNATIONAL VERSION® NIV® Copyright © 1973 1978 1984 2011 by Biblica Inc™ Used by permission All rights reserved worldwide Jacob and Marissa has liked each other since they were young but never acted upon it All Marissa mother would say about their relationship is to not ruin him So she left him alone rather then ruining Then when the new youth group leader Mark shows some interest and courts her Things are going fast but that s how things are supposed to be Things are not as they appear with Mark but everyone approves of their relationship and Mark is supposed to be a good guy Marissa also isnt the type of girl to stand up for herselfI liked how uniue this book was First of I haven t read a book like this and it was new and fresh and I absolutely enjoyed it I hated how much of a pushover Marissa is I feel like so many women can relate to her I liked how Marissa developed as a character at first she was a good character then as things went on it was easy to see how she was changing and not for the better Then she grew a pair and left I loved that there was then one point of view but something was off with Jacobs character POV I feel like this was one of those books that should have one point of view and just maybe I don t know I m trying to think of what to say I mean I feel like his side really wasn t going anywhere Maybe this story should ve just been her point of view and from time to time the way he acts towards her would hit the love they had for each other You know what for get I said anything I m not even sure if I m saying what I want to say right I loved the story line this book was beautiful written It was easy to connect and relate to the characters I thought it was interesting how the author made the one person that a person should care for and trust the one person who isnt as he appears It was interesting Overall I really enjoyed this book and think you readers will too Highly recommend 45 of 5 Stars

REVIEW Å MZINES.CO.UK Ï Mina Bennett

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 distanceUntil one night when everything changesWit Read reviews at The Anonymous Book Life This book was provided by publisher in exchange for an honest review Looking back I really should have picked up on it sooner that this was in some ways Christian fiction Now I don t have anything against religious fiction or books that have religious undertones but it is just not something I really seek out in my day to day readings And this book is a prime example of why It was a huge disappointment and I am having a hard time writing this review because I did not connect with the story or characters at all and I feel as though this will not be very thought out or coherent for that I apologizeAt first glance or reading of the description it makes you believe that Marissa is a highly troubled youth who has seen untold horrors in her short life That is not the case at all She was a uiet child in a town and family that seemed to condemn it She eventually grew up to become a uiet and reserved young woman and to be honest I am not surprised by it at all I would have kept to myself as well if I had to deal with her mother Her father is a spineless man that does not in any way speak up for his daughters and lets his wife lead him around as though he is on a leash The only real comfort she has ever had growing up is from the family catFast forward to her marriage and the sort of love triangle that develops with her her husband and kind of childhood friend Jacob It was all ridiculous Jacob had bad feelings about Mark from day one did he say anything to anyone about them No If he had there would have been no story I just really don t know how to feel about this and I feel like Marissa was a complete idiot for not picking up on the warning signs that Mark was clearly exuding Shelter Me as a whole was all over the place and the flow made it very hard to get into Combining that with the terrible editing made for a rather unenjoyable readAccording to the about the author section at the end of the novel Ms Bennett has written other books under the name Melanie Marchande which seem to have been a bit better received I may check them out but after this disappointing read I feel as if I should take a break from her right now

    Wow So I'm honestly just not sure where to go with this reviewI guess I'll start by saying that I'm still very new to the New Adult genre At first I was excited to start reading about the hard hitting YA themes that are so predominantly featured in that genre except with characters who are a little older and perhaps facin
