Goodreads Summary: 
Only weeks after being married, Amanda is back at her parents' farm in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania to tend to her ailing father while Alejandro is back on the road performing for his adoring fans. How will time and distance impact their relationship? Will the demands of his fans overshadow his love for Amanda? And how will the Amish community react to Amanda's presence (along with the return of the paparazzi) in their community?

An Amish Christian Romance that will leave you breathless and wanting more. Sarah Price, bestselling author of Amish Christian Romances, brings her twenty-five years of experience living among the Amish and from growing up Mennonite to the pages of her novels and novellas, in order to present a truly authentic Amish experience just for her readers.


 My Review:
“When she married him, she thought she was to be his wife. Now she was getting the sense that there was much more involved in being married to Viper than what was required to be married to Alejandro, and that was not something she had considered beforehand. “

Amanda and Alejandro are separated for most of the story in this one, besides the occasional very short amount of time they get to spent together.  This would cause problems even in a long lasting marriage especially when you consider that most of their conversations happen over short texts that don’t really say anything besides I miss you, and I’m okay. 
Amanda is busy helping out on her parent’s farm, which isn’t an easy task considering the paparazzi are still following her, and the rest of the Amish community refuses to talk to her because she left the community.  Amanda’s dad is still recovering meaning he is having to learn how to do things differently and how to communicate again.
Alejandro is still touring, recording and doing his mass amounts of media work. This leaves him feeling alone without Amanda by his side, which isn’t helped by the fact of his manager being a jerk and refusing to help Alejandro when it comes to Amanda. In fact his manager makes things way harder than they should be, even causing media stunts to happen that were unnecessary.  
When of Alejandro’s managers stunts goes extremely public, and even Amanda hears about it; things get extremely rocky for the. Plus surprises happen with the Amish community because of said things that appear to have happened.

Overall I thought this book was okay. I found myself getting annoyed with both characters, and even struggled to read at times because I was just losing interest in it. I also found myself getting annoyed with Alejandro more and more, if he would just deal with his problems instead of trying to sweep them under the wrong, and if he stopped thinking that Amanda should always be by his side even though her family needs her. I might start liking him again, but right now I think I’m going to take a bit of a break from these characters and come back to them in June or July.  

I received an e-arc of this book from Netgalley and Waterfall Press in exchange for my honest review. Thank you.
