“This is a must read. It This is the most realistic romance that I have read in a long time. It was easy to relate to Kristina Rose, who had been overweight for most of her life, and had a bypass surgery. I have friends who have had that surgery, and it certainly changed their lives, some good, and some not so good. The most important part of going thru the adjustment period, was knowing and believing that God Cares, and her friends cared about her. Her best friend Jeffrey, realized that he more than cared for ;her, but that he loved her. It was a terrible time to proclaim his love, because he never wanted her to think he loved her, because she was going to have a new gorgeous body. For anyone who has had this surgery, that is a genuine concern. This is such a heartfelt book. I couldn't put t down until I finished the book. The tone of this book was not so much about romance, but more about finding out who we are, and not doing things to please others, but being true to ourselves, of course with the help of God.” ~ 5 Stars from Rose Jordan
