I Don’t Dance by Jesseca Wheaton *Blog Tour

Today, I’m posting about Jesseca Wheaton’s new book that just came out yesterday! By the way, this is the third day in the blog tour. Check out the other stops in the schedule after the review. I’m super glad to have participated in the release of I Don’t Dance!

i don't dance

 

Sometimes it takes a a sunset to show you what really matters in life. But it’s the sunrise that bring the promise of a new beginning.

Ty and Jen have been friends for nearly as long as anyone can remember. But when Ty goes off to college and leaves her behind, he has to face the reality that he cares for her as more then just a friend.

As graduations approaches and with only one summer left before he begins basic training, Ty must make a decision. Military life is never easy; is it fair to force it on the one he loves?

In the midst of wrestling with the question and coming to the realization that summer is quickly drawing to a close, Ty struggles to face questions he cannot answer, and is forced to examine his own heart.

Is it possible that God has a future for him with Jen? Or will the summer close with only memories of days gone by?

Their relationship would be old fashioned. But that was okay. Because old fashioned and whimsical fit perfectly with a southern summer.

My Review:

Normally I don’t like reading books solely focused on romance, but in this case, I wanted to see how the author would portray a clean relationship between Ty and Jenny in this day and age. And I would have to say she did an outstanding job!

The story is told from Ty’s point-of-view, in third person. I think this was a unique choice, since females tend to have the lead in a romance. I found him to just be amazing. His joking around with Mike was hilarious as well as his playfulness with Jenny. I really liked how he was respectful towards Jenny’s parents and asked them first if pursuing a relationship with their daughter was possible. Although I’m not completely into the idea of courting, I found this to be delightful overall.

My favorite part of the story in general is that both characters were searching for Christ in their relationship with each other. Many romances these days are superficial, and don’t feel real (you know, the whole teen romance thing in our world today xD). This one was different, with Ty being concerned that a life with him being in the military would not be what his love deserved. And the epilogue just touched my heart….

I think it is pretty family-friendly overall, but I would recommended it for maybe 13+ since romance isn’t something that should be focused on.If you enjoy clean Christian romances, then this would be the book for you.

About the Author:

Jesseca is a daughter, sister, and a child of God. Her days are spent reading, cooking, spending time with siblings, or playing piano. And writing, of course! At an early age words fascinated her, and her love for the printed page has only grown. She lives with her parents and seven siblings in the sunny state of Kansas, and she’s convinced there’s no place like home.
