An Unexpected Reunion . . . A Second Chance at Love

Jesse Donovan is a changed man. Now a Christian and a successful building contractor, he’s dedicated to taking responsibility for his self-centered past. That includes welcoming the teenage boy he didn’t know he fathered. When the boy’s mother walks into Jesse’s office, their son has run away from home and is on a dangerous road, travelling with a friend who isn’t a friend at all.

Maeryn Scott once loved Jesse Donovan, only to be abandoned without even a goodbye. Her love for him died suddenly—or so she thought. Now, with her son in danger and determined to confront his father, Maeryn must face the conflicting needs of her son and her own heart. Who is Jesse now? Can she trust him? Falling in love again is the last thing Maeryn wants to do—especially with a man who will turn her world upside down.

My Review

THE BRIDGE BETWEEN US is a story about redemption and second-chance romance. The inspirational elements are weaved throughout with plenty of heartfelt moments as these characters try to partner together in helping their son. An entertaining and enjoyable story full of heart!

I really liked these characters. Jesse I loved! He had quite a road to redemption and yet was still a bit of a risk taker with that slight bad boy vibe, but really he was a solidly good guy who could make Maeryn's toes curl and mine along with hers. Maeryn was a very protective mom who had learned to be her son's everything and succeed on her own. She had her moments where I wanted to give her a good talking to, but Jesse had a few of those as well so it all balanced out. Then there was their son who I definitely wanted to shake a few times for so easily falling into the same patterns. It's not what I would call your usual romance. More of a mix of women's fiction and Christian romance because of the themes found in this story. Regardless, it pulled on my emotions and left me feeling sweetly content.

In the end, was it what I wished for? This was a book full of all the feels, with themes of redemption and second chances, as well as a coming-of-age story. From beginning to end, it pulls on the heart. I'm looking forward to seeing what's next for this author.

Content: Some references to drugs, pregnancy out of wedlock and some violence, but clean.
