Can something that began as a lie stand the test of time? Author Toni Shiloh explores this topic in The Love Script.
When a suggestive photo threatens to damage Hollywood A-lister Lamont Booker’s reputation, Nevaeh Richards agrees to a fake relationship. But soon enough, things begin to feel all too real.
Nevaeh was a sweetheart. From the minute you met her on the page, you were drawn to her because of the purity of her heart. She genuinely cared about people which was evident in her relationship with Ms. Rosie.
Lamont was a Christian who was genuinely trying to live his faith. I respected what he was trying to do with his platform and how he cared for his mom.
Nevaeh’s fangirling over Lamont made for some funny moments and banter between the two. What I liked about The Love Script was that even though Lamont and Nevaeh were fake-dating, they spent time actually getting to know each other making their romance a slow, sweet one.
Ms. Shiloh tackled some tough topics in The Love Script such as body issues and the value of a person.
Nevaeh didn’t fit the standards of beauty set by Hollywood and the naysayers had a lot to say about it. I enjoyed reading about a character with curves like mine who was suddenly thrust into the limelight and had to deal with people’s opinions.
Readers are left to ponder, isn’t a person worth more than what they look like or even what they do for a living?
And if we’re guilty of judging people based on surface things, what does that say about us?
Readers of The Love Script will be reminded that God designed the church to be a community for believers. A place where they go to worship the Lord. This was a lesson Nevaeh had to learn as she often avoided the assembly of believers for various reasons.
Other themes in The Love Script include going to God in prayer and allowing Him to fight our battles for us.
If you enjoy curvy heroines or celebrity romances, add The Love Script to your TBR.
I received an advanced reader’s copy from the publisher through NetGalley; a positive review was not required.
