beautifulruggedfront synopsis
Sometimes us silly girls fantasize about things that never come to be. I had expectations after college—expectations to run off with Jake Larson and start our life together in a little Pennsylvania farm town. I had my happiness mapped out inside my head. I didn’t expect to run into a strange, alluring man with a beard and dark hair stacked up on top of his head. I didn’t expect to be attracted to someone so—different. He was everything I didn’t know existed. He could make me feel things I’d never felt before. It didn’t seem possible that we could be together. We both had obligations. The world told us no, but we couldn’t stay away from one another, couldn’t deny that we were drawn together. He was so beautiful—so beautiful rugged. I was going to make him mine.   buynow  

Rachel's Review~

This is my first book by Sara V Zook and I was pleasantly surprised!Evanna thinking her love for Jake is true; moves with him to Pennsylvania...but things change once Jake is "home" and Evanna is left hanging more often.
Now, I live in Michigan, not more than 45 mins from the Indiana border so I often see/interact with some Amish folk and while I don't pretend to understand much, I know they have set rules that most of them live by. Rules that govern religion and family as well as their everyday lives. I also understand not all Amish are the same...much like everything else, there are different sects, for lack of a better word, and they have different rules about "outsiders" and what they can and can't do.
So Gideon and Evanna meet while outside the library. Gideon has rules he's supposed to follow, things that have to be done certain ways...While meeting Evanna was set in motion a waterfall of change not only is their lives, but the lives of many around them.  Gideon is already engaged...and he's not supposed to go outside of the Amish. Evanna is with Jake and even though she knows now how feelings SHOULD be, she still just doesn't feel right..
While the blurb was intriguing, I don't think it does the story justice. There was so much more emotion involved that what I would have thought.  I honestly expected a little racier, a little more suspense and drama, which is what I was looking for in this story originally.  What I got was wholly unexpected, but in a good way!  This was a great read, and I'll make sure to add Ms Zooks books to me TBR.
4.0 Stars
