Pierced by Love by Laura L. Walker
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Source; Received to Review
Genre: LDS Romance
Book Description: Noelle Jensen doesn’t want to like Pierce Logan. After her boyfriend breaks up with her for her sister, Noelle is done with love. Plus Pierce Logan has commitment issues because of his parents’ divorce and a strained relationship with his dad. But as Pierce and Noelle inadvertently help each other to open up their hearts, they also rediscover the importance of family and love.
My thoughts: Noelle has been jilted twice. The first time it was four days before the wedding, the second time after 11 months of dating, he decides to marry her sister that he's know for six weeks.
Pierce and Noelle are not ready for commitment. They become friends to help each other deal with their emotional issues. The funny thing about not searching for love and finding a great friend, it leads to the best kind of love.
I was very glad her relationship with Chase ended. She was sooo much better of without him. I hated the way he spoke down to her. His condescending attitude was annoying and uncalled for. I feel bad for her sister to end up with him. Noelle by far got the better deal.
I enjoyed reading the roller coaster of Noelle and Pierce's love life. They kept me company and kept my mind off of the cough that wouldn't let me sleep. Because both are dealing with issues, it made it easier for them to connect and encourage each other. It was humorous to see them dishing out the same advice that they had received a chapter or two ago.
This book is written to the LDS market (aka Mormon or members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints). While it is a cute and fun book to read, there are many culture specific references that may be confusing for someone not familiar with the LDS lingo.
