From Webber’s website: When Jacqueline follows her longtime boyfriend to the college of his choice, the last thing she expects is a breakup two months into sophomore year. After two weeks in shock, she wakes up to her new reality: she’s single, attending a state university instead of a music conservatory, ignored by her former circle of friends, and failing a class for the first time in her life.
Leaving a party alone, Jacqueline is assaulted by her ex’s frat brother. Rescued by a stranger who seems to be in the right place at the right time, she wants nothing more than to forget the attack and that night–but her savior, Lucas, sits on the back row of her econ class, sketching in a notebook and staring at her. Her friends nominate him to be the perfect rebound.
When her attacker turns stalker, Jacqueline has a choice: crumple in defeat or learn to fight back. Lucas remains protective, but he’s hiding secrets of his own. Suddenly appearances are everything, and knowing who to trust is anything but easy.
What did this book have to do with my faith? Lucas is the savior: physically, mentally and relationship-wise. He couldn’t save the one he was responsible for and he has been trying to make up for it ever since. This leaves him both busy and emotionally distant. He is still lost himself and can’t commit. Jesus is our savior: spiritually and often physically, mentally and relationship-wise as well. Jesus is 100% committed to us. He gave all of himself for us. He is not distant but completely available. He is not making up for further atonement — he has paid it all.
I recommend this for readers who don’t mind some rough language. Readers who would be upset reading about anyone who has been assaulted or almost assaulted may be disturbed by the subject matter and plot. There is also a detailed description about a murder.
