Save the Date

Save the Date is a cute rom-com. The writing is super fun. Lots of sarcastic wit. It was almost too much during the first third of the book but as the characters grew on me it evened out and kept the story hopping along. Alex is charming and sexy. I will miss him. View all 3 comments. Oct 23, Haley S rated it it was amazing Shelves: Totally awesome novel!!!

Can't wait to read more of her books!! Official Review: I found my new favorite author!

Wow, Jenny B. Jones is an awesome writer. Everything about her writing style is great. Lucy and Alex were the perfect couple. And, no, I do not mean the whole weird connection. I just really understood them. Jenny made them like real life people. And, there was one really cool p Totally awesome novel!!!

And, there was one really cool part about this book! Well, there was more than just one good part about this book. But, all the Star Wars references! And, oh my, some of the regular quotes were just as great. I was laughing so hard throughout this book! The one negative thing about this book is the cover. I do not like it at all.

The dress on the woman is not at all flattering, definitely not for her. And, it is weird ish pose. It kind of overwhelms the picture. I am going to give the cover 1 star. Save the Date deserves 5 stars. I loved it!!! And, instead of saving the date, you will have to save the weekend. Save the Date Author: Jenny B. Maybe even for a year or two.

Lucy Whiltshire returned to Charleston determined to make a difference, founding Saving Grace, a home for girls who've graduated from the foster care system but are not yet equipped or unable to make the transition to adulthood and caring for themselves.

But when funding for her non-profit i Lucy Whiltshire returned to Charleston determined to make a difference, founding Saving Grace, a home for girls who've graduated from the foster care system but are not yet equipped or unable to make the transition to adulthood and caring for themselves.

But when funding for her non-profit is unceremoniously pulled, Lucy stands in danger of failing her girls and joining them on the streets. Desperation drives her into the arms of Alex Sinclair, heir to the very firm that pulled her financial support and one of the Charleston blue-bloods that excelled at making Lucy feel so very inferior as a teen. Locked in a heated Congressional race, Alex desperately needs to shake his former playboy image if he hopes to win over voters -- and a relationship with Lucy might just do the trick.

He makes a shocking proposal -- in exchange for posing as his girlfriend and eventual fiancee, he'll provide Lucy with the money she needs to save her girls home. Despite his movie star-looks, Alex couldn't be farther from Lucy's romantic ideal -- but with the future of her girls on the line, she agrees to play the doting girlfriend.

With both their futures riding on a romantic con, under the glare of a media spotlight two individuals who can't stand each other confront the truth that there's more to each other than first meets the eye -- and the irresistible sparks that fly when opposites attract. Save the Date is without a doubt one of the best romance novels I've read in ages -- it marries all of the comfortable trappings of a romantic comedy with unexpectedly, well-meted powerful moments of spiritual truth.

I've long been a fan of the author's blog, where one can appreciate her well-drawn sense of humor and wit, but I've yet to dive into her novels -- an error I hope to soon rectify. Save the Date is replete with Jones's trademark humor and pop culture references. Despite their disparate backgrounds, Alex and Lucy prove worthy sparring partners -- Lucy, sure in her certainty that Alex is nothing more than a pretty face who could never forsake his playboy-ways, while for his part Alex quickly learns to love baiting his fake fiancee, enjoying her easily-riled temper.

But beneath their surface differences and wildly disparate upbringings, Lucy and Alex discover in each other a fellow wounded soul in desperate need of grace. While the arrangement Alex proposes is at first blush extreme, and worthy of the lightest-weight Hollywood blockbuster, the manner in which Jones uses the tropes of an arranged marriage in this case, fake engagement to force her two protagonists together masks the real heart of the novel -- accepting God's freely-given grace.

Though the life experiences that formed Alex and Lucy couldn't be more different -- Alex, the son of privilege and money, Lucy, the daughter of a struggling single mom -- both have bought into what I would posit is one of the most insidious lies -- that no matter who you are, what you do, where you've come from, it's never enough.

In what is probably one of the best examples of incorporating a faith message into a novel that I've come across, Lucy's out-going youth pastor friend Chuck lays bare the lie that salvation, God's grace, must be earned over and over. In a society that idolizes perfection, Jones strips the lie that we must live burdened by pasts filled with fear and regret, when all that is required is accepting God's grace, freely offered, and resting in the knowledge that in Him alone are we made perfect.

Lucy and Alex's unexpected love story is just part of this novel's considerable charm. I adored watching Alex and Lucy fall for each other -- Jones pens some lovely, sizzling moments of romantic tension!

But she also peoples her storyline with a host of unforgettable, amusing, well-drawn supporting players. I loved that Lucy was a sci-fi geek who had regular meetings with like-minded friends a.

Lucy's prickly, recently discovered grandmother Claire is a gem, and Claire's fledgling faith coupled with her secretary Julian's sarcastic commentary provide some of the novel's best moments. Save the Date is a laugh-out-loud, frothy, warm-hearted confection of a novel that packs an unexpected emotional punch. Filled with unforgettable, wonderfully flawed characters, Jones proves she's a master at spinning a thoroughly enjoyable, escapist romance laced with spiritual truths.

Very well done. View all 8 comments. Jones because if I were to judge this book by its cover, it didn't give me the chick lit vibe.

It gave me a romance novel vibe, sure, but not really chick lit. Am I the only one getting that? I want chick lit, but I'm not entirely sure if I wanted a romance novel -- if you get what I mean. Nevertheless, I requested this from NetGalley because the blurb seemed interesting despite its familiarity, and I heard good stuff about the author on Twitter. Maybe it's the leftover February air that made me start reading this, and once I started reading, I couldn't stop.

Save the Date starts with Lucy Wiltshire dancing around her kitchen, preparing a meal for her boyfriend Matt, expecting a proposal coming very soon. However, she was crushed when Matt says he's choosing his job over her, and he had to move away, just as when Lucy can't leave her hometown because she was about to open her foster home for adolescent girls, Saving Grace. Fast forward two years later, Lucy seems to be doing well, until life decided to throw her a curve ball: Enter old schoolmate and rich boy Alex Sinclair who was running for Congress.

A chance encounter between the two gave Alex a good image for the election, so he proposes to Lucy: Left with no choice, Lucy says yes, praying that she wasn't making a mistake. As they play along with the lie, demons from the past surface and they find out that God's plans are higher than our plans and He can work His purpose even in our flimsy human plans. I was pleasantly surprised by this book. This had the same vibe as A Billion Reasons Why but it has less of the Southern drawl and more of real and sympathetic characters.

I liked Lucy from the start -- she's a darling, but she was far from a weakling.

Other books: THE LONG TAIL BOOK

She's been toughened up by the hardships she experienced in her life and even if she suffers from a big inferiority complex, her heart is always in the right place. I admire her passion for the girls she's caring for and her fierce loyalty to what she believes in, even if sometimes it comes off as stubbornness. While I'm not much taken by Alex's described good looks and his charisma, I thought he was good for Lucy. He is far from perfect which I really appreciated, and I'm sure his faults and his growth in the story is something that other people have experienced.

I liked how their relationship developed and how they saw each other in a better light despite the lie that they have built for their image. I lost count at how many times I sighed and wished that they'd realize that they were perfect for each other, and that one of them would make a move that would break the the pretend relationship they have so they could move into something real.

Their banter was refreshing and witty, none of the gooey, over the top exchanges that didn't feel natural. I liked that even if it seemed like an outrageous story, everything in the story still felt real, like it could happen to anyone. Jones is definitely worth the read. While there's nothing really new in the premise, the characters, their voices and the author's humor shines through in the story, making this a very, very good read.

I look forward to reading more of Jenny B. Jones' books. Feb 16, Cheryl Olson rated it it was amazing Shelves: With that being said, I want to share that I laughed out loud numerous times when reading this book. Jones at first glance looks like a classic, cute, chick- lit kind of book. Our heroine, Lucy Wiltshire is sort of a modern day Cinderella.

Growing up in Charleston, South Carolina with a mother who earned her living as a maid did not give her social status at the prominent Montrose Academy where she attended as a child, and as a result endured teasing and bullying there.

Save the Date

Fast forward to the present and Lucy is the founder of Saving Grace, a home for foster girls aged making the transition to adulthood with her help and guidance. A major problem erupts- one of her biggest backers has pulled the plug on their contributions by a significant amount.

She is in danger of losing the home and panicked about her girls, where will they go. Well, the hero of the story has the answer to that query- enter Alex Sinclaire- a former attendee of Montrose Academy and famous former professional football player as well. So after a cthance meeting at a local gathering where both are present and pictures are taken of them together, he finds that his approval points have skyrocketed. It seems that the public likes a good Cinderella story and he hatches a plan- a staged romance with a win-win scenario- Alex gets a steady girl on his arm for public events and Lucy gets the funding she needs to keep Saving Grace open.

There is so much more going on in this story than the general romance between these two characters. Alex is dealing with grief and guilt over his twin brothers disappearance and probable death.

Their chemistry and banter between each other is fun and amusing in one moment and truly deep and probing in the next. It truly is rare for me to find a book where I am laughing uproariously in one moment and shedding tears the next, while seeing great spiritual elements in the whole thing.

Elements like our struggles with our worth and figuring out the whole man-pleasing versus God-pleasing dilemma. I highly recommend this book. You will not be disappointed and I will be keeping my eye on Jenny B.

Jones in the future. I know this is a Niagara Falls kind of review- much gushing- but I still stand by it. Great book, great characters and great read!

Blast you, Jenny Jones! Don't you know I have stuff to do? How am I supposed to get anything done when you write books like this? I woke up worried about Lucy last night and have been reading every spare minute today. My laundry is piled up around me. The dishes are fermenting in the sink. The coffee pot is drained. Thanks a lot. By the way, where's book two?

Jun 26, Renee rated it it was amazing Shelves: Looking for fun, faith, football and some knock-off designer pumps? Jones's Save the Date. I absolutely loved every word of it. From the first zinger dished out by sassy Lucy to the tender moments with her "Han Solo" I was hooked. Lucy's a bit insecure, she's clumsy, she's a Trekkie and she's a size twelve a ten if anybody asks.
