This novel was so much fun to read! It's my day to review it. Big thanks to Cedar Fort for putting on this blog book tour.
About the Book:
The last thing Valerie wants or needs is to work for her childhood tormentor, Gage. But Valerie's husband walked out on her and her children. Now she needs a job. Gage, on the other hand, has just taken custody of his four-year-old son and is swamped trying to balance his career, be a daddy, and fix past mistakes. Together they discover that when it comes to the Church and each other, it's all about second chances. This sweet romance will renew your faith in love and redemption.
My Opinion on "The Matchup":
I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book! It is a LDS romantic novel. I usually only read nonfiction, but I loved this realistic fiction. It was fun to dive into the crazy lives of Gage and Valerie. I loved how Laura (the author) would switch off who was narrating the story. She made it distinct and I loved the characters and their personality. In this story, we find two broken people with trials weighing on their shoulders. Life can be so hard sometimes! But, there is always hope. I believe everything happens for a reason. This story is no exception. Gage and Valerie re-meet and they know it's more than just fate. God has a hand in all of our lives and I loved going through the adventure with them. I recommend "The Matchup" because you will come away with a sense of trusting Heavenly Father. Not only is it a fun and easy read, but you will realize that second chances are everything. Progression is real and it's never too late to turn your life around. Thank you to Laura for writing an incredible book.
