"Made to Last" by Melissa Tagg

{Yeah, so remember on Monday when I said I would be reviewing another teen book on Friday? Turns out that book I was going to post isn’t a Christian one (I just finished it late last night)…back-up plan B anyone? ;) }
{Also! This is our 100th blog post! Woo-hoo!!} 
About this book:

  “Miranda Woodruff, star of the homebuilding show "From the Ground Up," will do anything to keep the job she loves. Due to a painful broken engagement and a faith she's mostly forgotten, she's let her entire identity become wrapped up in the Miranda everyone sees onscreen. So when she receives news that the network might cancel her program, she must do the very thing she fears most: let the spotlight shine on her closely guarded personal life. The only problem? She's been living a lie--letting viewers believe she's married--and now she's called upon to play wife to a sweet, if a bit goofy, pretend husband to boost ratings.
  Desperate to help his family and prove he's not a total failure, reporter Matthew Knox is looking for a breakout story. When he's offered the opportunity to do an online serial feature on Miranda Woodruff, he jumps at the chance, even if celebrity reporting isn't really his thing. But as soon as he meets Miranda, he knows she's keeping secrets.
  When Miranda's former fiance suddenly appears on the scene again, she doubts her life could get more complicated. Juggling three guys, an on-the-rocks television show, and the potential exposure of her deception is way more than she bargained for. Can the woman who makes things look so good onscreen admit it's time to tell the truth about who she is? And if she does, will the life Miranda's built come crashing down just as she's finally found a love to last?

 Series: Book #1 in the “Where Love Begins”. {Book #2 “Here to Stay”’s review Here!}

Spiritual Content- Scriptures are quoted & Church going; Randi’s parents were missionaries; Talks about God, His Will, Trusting Him, and having your identity through Him.

Negative Content- Minor cussing including: two ‘stinkin’’s, an unfinished “what the—“, a ‘shoot’, and a ‘blasted’; Matthew calls himself a “screw-up” and tells himself “not to screw up” around ten times; Randi says “Installing crown moldings can be a pain in the you-know-what.”.

Sexual Content- a ‘hottie’ (used to described a guy); Randi says her & Robbie lived together and says “may have lived like it, they haven’t been married.” *Spoiler* and before he left she thought she was pregnant and later finds out she’s not. *End of Spoiler*
