Bestselling author Kim Brooks shines in this inspiring and entertaining journey through life, love, and faith.
Ten years of believing, yet still no husband in sight for Shenita Love. The Bible does say, "Wait on the Lord," which, for Shenita, means waiting for God to deliver her a soul mate. Then again, God helps those who help themselves.
On her thirty-fifth birthday, Shenita’s fear of never starting a family has reached a fever pitch. Her trusty "rule book"—filled with guidelines for dating—simply isn’t cutting it.
Soon Shenita is signing up for online dating sites, hitting on men at sporting events, and putting herself out there in ways she never imagined.
When Shenita stops playing by the book and takes mattes into her own hands, she finds anything can happen.
Meanwhile, her closest friends are struggling with their own issues of sexuality and acceptance, divorce, insecurity, and financial strain. Always the faithful shoulder to lean on, Shenita wants to be there for them, but her desire to find a man leads her to an unforeseeable circumstance. A place where she must examine her relationship with God and reconsider her priorities.
I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book, I loved all of the characters, and the storyline was a welcome change from what I’m used to reading. It was nice to read about a woman with realistic expectations about what she wanted in her life and out of a relationship.
Shenita Love is a Christian woman that believes God will bring her a good Christian man when the time is right and has a dating rule book that she has been following religiously for the past ten years. She’s turning thirty-five and is afraid that she will never find a husband. She puts her rule book aside and decides to take matters into her hands and signs up for a few online dating sites.
I’m not single, but I could relate to the main character Shenita, and her need to want to start a family and find a good man. The way she put herself out there at different points in the book was funny at times. Shenita had a good heart and would do anything to help out her friends, who were going through their own issues also. I gave this book five stars and will definitely be reading more from this author.
