I’d be lying if I said I didn’t know it’d end like this.
From the beginning, it could only go one way, and straight to hell it did.
My past reads like a film stuck on repeat; fall in in love, get heart broke, and then run. Just fucking run.
And run I did.
Straight back to that place I swore I’d never return.
Straight back to that place where my broken heart lies buried deep within one man’s chest.
Noah Parker was my first love. He was my only love.
The only boy that could ever make me feel alive.
The only boy who ever truly broke my heart.
The only boy who could possibly save me from myself.
But Noah isn’t a boy anymore…
This novel was nothing like I expected it to be. When I first read the words stripper and preacher, I was like hells yaaass!! But it’s really not that type of book. There is so much feeling between the characters that it almost hurt to read at some points. The overall tone of the story was really somber and sad.
Faith learned early in life that the world is a pretty unpleasant place but as luck would have it, she was able to land the best foster parents in the world, during her teenage years, but good things can never last. When the world came crumbling down she stayed, but after a while it became too much and she ran away. Now back, years later she’s in for another devastating blow but can her childhood love, Noah, help her through this crushing news? Or will they both run away and never look back?
Noah was always faithless until he met Faith. Faith restored so much light and hope in his life that he forever knew that she was the one for him. Until the day his world crashed down around him. Unable to cope with the memories, Noah left and was able to find God. But all the while he was finding himself his love ones were in a downward spiral and by the time he came back there was nothing he could do for them. Years later, Noah is a different man, a hardened man who is out for revenge. Can Faith restore his humanity before it’s too late? Or will Noah’s revenge make him into a shadow of the man he was once before?
This story was told in first person point of view of Faith as well as past and present point of view. It was a little jarring to go from the present story line to the past story line in every other chapter but it did give a glimpse into the background story of the main characters.
Ultimately, this novel was unexpected but beautifully written. The tragic parts really hit you in the gut and the peaceful parts make you feel like you are finally out of gloomy depths of heartbreak. All in all, if you are in the mood for a novel that pulls on your heart strings and makes you beg for the characters second chance then come check out why Faith is Faithless!
I couldn't have said that better myself! Reading is huge passion of mine. And I'm glad that books not only expand my world view but that they bring the wonderful people who created them into my life. You can always find me with a book and an eclectic mix of music on. I am a HEA junkie extraordinaire! I am a Beta reader, who loves helping authors bring their characters to life. As well as an avid romance reader (every and anything ;D) turned aspiring author.
