"Until I Found You" by Victoria Bylin

About this book:

  “Contemporary Romance to Make You Laugh, Cry, and Fall in Love
When Kate Darby swerves off a mountain road to avoid hitting a California condor, she ends up trapped in her car, teetering on the edge of a cliff. Terrified, she breathes a prayer that changes her life: "God, if you're real, I want to know you."
  It's Nick Sheridan who comes to Kate's rescue. Nick is handsome, confident, and seems to develop a habit of rescuing her, but Kate is in town only until her grandmother recuperates from a stroke. She's not planning to fall in love with one of the locals.
  Nick Sheridan is a reformed veteran of life in the fast lane, a new Christian, and a travel writer. When he sees a car dangling on the edge of a cliff, the daredevil in him jumps into action. He doesn't expect to be swept off his feet by the car's occupant. He's made a vow: no dating for a year. And it's a vow he intends to keep in spite of his attraction to Kate Darby.

 Series: As of now, no.

Spiritual Content- Isaiah 52:2 in the beginning; Some “Why now, God?” and “Why me, God?” questions/prayers with some true prayers; Talks about God, His Will & Trusting Him; Nick has a Faith and witness to Kate, who doesn’t *Spoiler* but later does {But in my honest opinion, doesn’t seem like it was true…it seemed (to me) that she wanted to become a Christian for being in love with Nick & making him happy and not with Christ} *end of spoiler*.

Negative Content- Minor cussing: a “wimp”, a “suck” and two “crud”s; Leona tries to say “sit” but it comes out wrong “like a four-letter word” (she gets very embarrassed then goes “not shhhh, sssss!”)

Sexual Content- Please only read this if you’re 15+. About 4 semi-detailed kisses & 3 detailed kisses; Nick says the p*rn industry disgusts him; Kate says she gave her first college boyfriend her virginity willingly; Nick says he “had a one-night fling” which he learned a year later resulted in a baby; Leona writes Kate a long letter/small book about her life with a little bit of what Leona did on her wedding night.

My personal Rating- 

“Until I Found You” was a book I didn’t really like but it’s not a book I dislike…does that make sense? It was an odd book to me. The bird (condor…?) parts were different. I wanted to read this book because of the pretty cover (What?! I’m a photographer, that light is gorgeous!) and the story-line seemed interesting.
Probably best for late 20’s and up.
