Mocked by Faith **Michele Richard**

Genre: Christian/Women's Fiction/Contemporary
Series: Mocked
List Price: $7.99

Stars: 2.5/5


For Alexia Cross and Justin McNear, things are not what they seem.  Both were born and raised in hidden, gated communities.  A place where time virtually stands still and marriages are arranged by parents before a child’s 18th birthday.

Alexia is destined to be her community’s first spinster.  In a last ditch effort, a husband is found.  The only complication?  He has no idea he has been betrothed. Will his history of dating outsiders help or hinder his relationship with his future wife?

Justin McNear searched outside his church for the woman of his dreams. Returning home after failing, he knows he needs to rectify his life and his faith. Can a woman he’s never met make him whole again?

Will this couple end up mocked by their own faith?  Follow Alexia and Justin through the trials and tribulations of finding, falling, and surviving each other's love. It’s never easy saying “I do” to someone you don’t know.

My Opinion:

I’m almost ashamed to admit I didn’t finish this book. That rarely happens to me, even if I’m not particularly enjoying a book, I usually finish it to find out what happens, with the hope that it improves by the end.

This book is very religious themed, and not being a religious person in any way, it didn’t click for me.  The sex is fairly graphic, which seemed very odd to me, and some of the things the couple went through after their wedding where shocking to me.


I would personally not recommend this book to others. If you are a strict, religious person who also enjoys romance novels, then this might be right up your ally.
