Jules Jackson is leading a hectic life, but she's got it all under control. She's holding down two busy public relations jobs, a group of crazy but loyal friends, and a very difficult mother. It's little wonder she doesn't need to be dealing with the stress a man in her life could bring.
Then Germaine Williams walks into her life and turns it upside down. He owns his own business, goes to church, and is extremely handsome. Of course Jules falls for him hard.
But Jules soon learns that not everything is as it seems and Germaine is keeping a very big secret from her. One that is too big for Jules to look the other way. Will she run from her feelings and go back to handling things for herself? Or will she finally learn to trust God and let His will be done in her life?
Man Enough For Me is Rhonda Bowen's debut novel and I have to say straight away that I can't believe this is her first novel. It has the polish, the sizzle, and the faith that you find in the writings of seasoned and well-established Urban Christian authors.
The book moves along at just the right pace and doesn't let you put it down. The characters are real and relatable. From the moment you start reading you feel as though you have known all of the characters for years. And I personally love the way my beautiful city of Toronto was represented in the book.
Man Enough For Me also has the right amount of faith. It doesn't get in your face but it does speak to you. The lessons that Ms. Bowen has included in her book about trust and endurance in God will hit home and have you reflecting on your own life.
I cannot wait to see what else Ms. Bowen has to offer. With Man Enough For Me she has established herself in the Christian Fiction world. If you're looking for romance and drama tied together with faith you will find everything you are looking for, and more, right here in this book.
