BLOG TOUR: My POV of I Choose You by Bethany Lopez

This is a New Adult Title - Meant for Readers 18 & Older.

Up until now, Nicole's life has been mapped out for her. She'd go to college, marry Jake and become the upstanding minister's wife. When she leaves that life to begin again in a small town in Texas, she finally has the freedom to live as she chooses. There, she meets Kent, a guy whose charm and passion make it hard to stick to her morals.

Dodging his father’s fists and protecting his twin sister made Kent into the man he is today. He learned by watching his mother stay by his father’s side that it’s better to keep relationships simple. Then he meets Nicole. Her sweet smile and genuine response to him land like punches to his resolve. After a lifetime of learning to protect his heart, can he finally let down his guard?



This was a beautiful story with a ton of potential. All the essential elements of a great story was there; love, hope, doubt and the main characters felt real and relatable. It was also nice to see all the other characters from the Lovers & Friends series. 

Nicole doesn’t want to become a minsters wife and start a congregation. That is what her parents want and have planned out for her. So she make a difficult but brave decision and leaves that life behind. Starting a new life on her own in a different town feels good and exciting especially the part where Kent’s sister becomes her roommate. You know, because she gets to see Kent.. a lot;-) 

Kent is a strong handsome bachelor who is not looking for a committed relationship. After getting his heart broken and seeing how his parents are with each other he can never really see himself in a serious relationship. But, he can’t fight his attraction for the innocent, kind, and beautiful Nicole.

The only down side to this book is that if felt a little incomplete or lack more intimate interaction between the main characters. I’m not talking about sex. I wanted more scenes where you could really see these two characters connect and fall in love. Either way I still enjoyed this book and will read the next book. I love watching all the characters fall in love!

"Honey," Kara drawled. "You look at him like he's a tootsie roll pop and you want to lick your way to the center."
"I think you're the most wonderful, talented, kind-hearted, amazing person that I've ever met. When I'm with you, I feel stong and invincible. You make me believe that I can be anything I want to be.
