Rooted in Love by Valerie ComerAlaina Silva gets enough time with other people’s kids in her new job administrating the Grace Greenhouse programs. If she were looking to date — and she’s not — it wouldn’t be with a man offering her an insta-family. So why is it a struggle to keep the intriguing father of a pair of rambunctious twins out of her mind?

Divorcé Cameron Kraus has a busy life with a career and two six-year-olds. Now he’s finally scored full-time daycare at Grace Greenhouse, but his overbearing parents are in town for the summer offering to watch the boys. No thanks. Not when Cameron is hoping to build something with the gorgeous program director he sees at least twice a day.

Faced with disapproval from both families, Alaina and Cameron must dig roots deep into their faith if they hope to nurture their budding love.

My Thoughts

“It’s complicated.” Y’all have heard that one, right?! Alaina and Cameron experience all kinds of complications from family and work conflicts to relationship expectations and time restraints. These two have to decide if their immediate attraction is strong enough to grow into lifelong love and commitment.

Rooted in Love explores several different aspects of faithfulness (or lack thereof) in romantic and marital relationships including the stigma of divorce in some churches. Comer doesn’t sidestep quarrelsome issues like meddling parents, exuberant (occasionally unruly) children, or the division of labor within a home.

Despite all those potential landmines, the story is well balanced with precocious children, genuine faith elements, and loads of sweet romance! Alaina and Cameron have a lot of maturing to do but don’t we all?

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher and was under no obligation to post a review. The opinions expressed are my own.
