    Absolutely Loved This Book!!

    I just fall in love harder with Ms. Boldt every time I read her stories! The Good Samaritan is the perfect story! It made me smile, it made me cry and it made me swoon! All the ingredients needed for a perfect romance. But this is more than a romance. It's a story about redemption and forgiveness. I felt for Faith, I was full of sorrow about how she felt about her secret. How because of a hurtful past, it made her feel less than. Made her feel that she will lose herself and will never be happy. Oh Jude. I wanted to wrap him in a warm blanket and hug him tight. He is searching for a way to redeem himself from his secret. But their is nothing to redeem. He is a true hero in every sense of the word. I applauded Faith's acceptance of Jude. She never saw anything other than what made him worthy of her love and faith. I also applaud Ms. Boldt for making her characters flawed. Also for the honesty of making Faith and Jude fix themselves before trying to find their forever together. The secondary characters are phenomenal! I loved how they came into the picture at just the right time. And how their presence made their mark in Faith and Jude's lives. I cannot tell you enough, dear readers, how much I loved this story! Do yourself a favor and get this book. Read it slow and enjoy it! It will make you stop and think of things you thought you knew just a bit differently!

    Not what you think

    I have seen this author's books for years and I am ashamed to say this was my first chance to fall in love with her and her style. So many times throughout this story goosebumps rose on my arms. It wasn't due to the sex or romance it was the snippet of articles at the beginning of each paragraph which told of the actions of the Good Samaritan and the actions of people who picked up his acts of kindness and started paying it forward. This book not only follows a man desperate to cleanse himself of the angst and sorrow or his own experience but not looking for reciprocity of any kind. His kindness towards one woman in particular Pauline ends up a major person in his life and it isn't his girl. On his journey he meets a priest. . . . and while it's the great lead off to a joke the jokes on him. I can't tell you the feels or emotion in this story which brings to the attention the plight of the low to no income or someone who had the rug snatched out. Too many people are one pay check from being homeless which is what makes this story so real. The characters are amazing and the story warms the heart and yeah even the tears that fell were because of the intensity of the read. Now there is so much that can be said about this read. Needless to say I will be looking more closely and opening my wallet to enjoy more of this authors work.

    There’s no doubt this deserves 5 Glorious Stars!

    "Evil thrives under the cloak of darkness. It’s also where secrets are hidden in the depths. I learned this long before I joined the ranks of the homeless. Darkness, those shadows offering disguise, enable evildoers. Those who prey on the weak and profit from their loss. Darkness also masks our sins. It disguises everything we don’t want visible in the light of day. I’m a prime example of the latter. I’ve become one with the dark obscurity, have melded into the shadows, to join the homeless. I’m here, amidst the ragged, weary, unkempt population. I’m here because this is the only way. This is my mission. To not only look evil in its face and confront it, but to also protect those who cannot protect themselves. To leave only good deeds in my wake. I must atone for my sins". This is such a heartbreakingly beautiful story. It’s about so many people who suffer loss, and then when they’re down there are those really evil people, who come along and steal what little these people have, who steal what they are trying to do to get a life and a home of their own. This is a story about a man who went through such a traumatic experience and knows he must pay his penance, so he gives up everything and lives amongst these people, protecting them, picking them up when they are down and helping them when he can, anonymously. Yet he takes nothing, giving them the food from his mouth, the clothes off his back. He feels he deserves to suffer, it’s his penance. He has become known as The Good Samaritan. He does so many wonderful things, but I’ll leave that for you to read about. It’s just so touching. This is a story about a woman named Faith, who has been through a lot in her life. On top of that she is starting to lose her hearing and will one day go deaf. There is an expensive implant and by working at the newspaper, as a reporter, she gets insurance that will cover some of the cost, but it’s not enough. Faith has had a very hard life and struggles very hard, but she has a really good heart. One day Faith meets The Good Samaritan (I’ll let you find out how) and there’s a shift already in motion. This story is about a man who lost his soul and a woman who brought him back to life. RC Boldt has exceeded herself with this book!! The depth of the characters, the storyline and the overall theme of this story are just so beautifully done. I enjoyed this book immensely and didn’t want it to end. I highly recommend this one. There’s no doubt that it deserves 5 Glorious Stars!!

    A Heartwarming Read!

    The Good Samaritan is a powerfully written romance, there is so many great characters in this book, it a treat for the senses. It also highlights real problems so many people suffer from. Jude is great guy, struggling after tragedy he feels guilty about, and tries to atone by living on the streets and helping others in need. Nothing seems to help until he meets Faith and Father James who runs the homeless shelter. The only person to pierce his darkness is Faith a reporter who volunteers at the shelter. Faith just sees a man in pain, not a bum who lives on the street. They become friends, Faith the only woman to interest him in five years. One night after work Faith is attacked and nearly raped fortunately Jude stops the rapist and gets Faith to the hospital in time. It makes them both realise what they feel for each other. Alas the road to true love is paved with obstacles. This is a heartwarming and at times heartbreaking read. This book actually blew me away, and I admit tears were shed when I got to the end.

    5 second chance stars

    What can I say about The Good Samaritan by RC Boldt, that hasn’t been said already? Quite frankly, nothing. This book blew me away. It’s a refreshing change in the cluttered world of written romance, from the amazing and challenging storyline, to the characters and the writing itself. It all just blended into one brilliant, emotional read, that was also funny with a touch of sass. Just so you are prepared. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry and then you’ll outright swoon. Faith and Jude together? Just simply divine. This is an absolute must read, don’t TBR it, grab it and settle down for the night. You can thank me later!
