    Rare intelligent romance

    This novel was a breath of fresh air in that it was well written and intelligent. The main characters were very believable. Also, the author did not go with the usual romance formula where the main characters break up and get together near the end. I loved Jude. He really makes this novel pop. My only issue is with how quickly things were wrapped up at the end. Still couldnt give it less than 5 stars. Excellent. I will definitely read it again.

    This book kept me up till 3AM! Loved this book!

    Ever since I read Bittersweet, I wanted to know more about Jude. He was a character that kept to himself and had a lot of mystery around him. We finally get to dive into his mind in this one and I LOVED it! There are so many emotions playing throughout this book, and it really plays into the theme of second chances, whether it be in life or in love. When Jude was younger he fell in love with Sophie. She was the “good girl” falling in love with the “bad guy from the wrong side of the tracks.” Her father was the police chief and didn’t approve of their relationship, but it didn’t matter, because nothing could keep Sophie away from Jude. A few years later, Jude gets into an accident with Sophie’s brother in the car and her brother is killed. It turns out Jude had been addicted to pain killers and now he ended up in jail because of it. Jude had kept his addiction well hidden from Sophie, and when she found out after the accident it shattered her. When Jude got out of jail he ended up at the Shipley farm working with them for the apple picking season, but when it’s over, he has to go home and face his demons head on. He’s terrified to see Sophie, because he knows he still loves her but doesn’t think he deserves her love after what he did to her brother. When he runs into her at the church he goes to for AA meetings, his world gets turned upside down by her. Is love strong enough to conquer the demons? Can Jude find a second chance in love and life even though he feels he isn’t deserving? Read Steadfast to find out. This book was AMAZING!!!!! Sarina Bowen brought so much emotion into her characters. The way she handled Jude’s addiction in the book really let you into his mind and you wanted Jude to overcome his demons. You could feel how hard it was for him at certain points throughout the book and you just wanted him to be happy and see that he is deserving of love even when he thinks he’s not. The book was set in a small town in Vermont, which is different from Bittersweet, which is set at the farm, but we still get to see Griff, Audry, and the rest of the Shipley clan (including Zach). Which made me really happy, because I LOVE the Shipley family! I don’t want to give anything away, but I absolutely loved the ending of the book. I think Jude and Sophie just topped Griff and Audry for me. Jude really has become my favorite Sarina Bowen character. We will have to see if I change my mine when Keepsake (Zach’s book) comes out

    Really enjoyed book 2 in the North series

    It was such a lovely story. And you still see what's happening with the other characters. Strongly recommended.

    I just love Jude and Sophie's story. I could smell a rat and so it was even if it was predictable. It's a great love story.

    Steasfast:. Great subplots too!

    I am a firm believer that readers keep turning pages because the characters are so interesting that we just can't help ourselves! This book has great secondary plots and characters that you want to cheer for. Really enjoyed this one. The female lead's father is very well-written!
