Review of Save the Date!

Save the Date by Jenny B. Jones is an unusual romantic story that's a little like a modern-day Cinderella. When a huge donor backs out, Lucy Wiltshire is desperate to save her home for teen girls who have outgrown the foster care system and have to fight through life like she did. Alex Sinclair is desperate to win what his good looks, NFL fame, and money can't buy- a seat in Congress; his family is also the donor that supported Lucy's home.
In a whirlwind of gossip and rising popularity, Alex comes to Lucy with an interesting proposal... literally. Lucy and Alex must pretend to be dating then engaged to get Alex his position. Lucy, in return, gets her home.
With some disasters, shocking revelations, and tons of hilarity, Lucy and Alex soon discover that maybe they don't have to pretend. Do they really love each other?

This book is absolutely amazing. I've read books by Jenny B. Jones before (So Not Happening, In Between, ect.) and I can honestly say this book does not disappoint. It has that flair that is just so this author's style, and I love how the characters' humor doesn't take away from the story but makes it more vibrant. There are clear messages about forgiveness, God's love and power, and true love. Lucy was a strong character who still had her insecurities, and Alex was a surprisingly down-to-earth character. It's not just guy and girl are forced together by circumstance, fall in love, and live happily ever after. This story has many twists and turns, some real tear-jerking moments, and some big surprises. I absolutely enjoyed this book. I recommend it to gals in their late teens or early twenties.

All in all, I rate this book a five out of five stars.

I've seen a few movies with this kind of plot and they were absolutely fun to watch! Thanks for the review! I'll have to look into getting it out once it comes out! :D

Oh, and thanks for mentioning booksneeze. I was a bit more than bummed when HarperCollins Children's books stopped their pre-readers program. I'll look into signing up for this!
