While traveling through Manhattan on the way back to her Amish community, young Amanda Beiler is struck by a limousine. The limo’s passenger, Cuban-born superstar Alejandro Diaz, takes responsibility for her injuries and vows to oversee her recovery. Leaving the fame circuit behind, Alejandro returns Amanda to her family in Lititz, Pennsylvania.
Desperate for a break from the stress of the spotlight, the famous singer offers to stay on the family farm for a week to help—an offer guardedly accepted by the deeply religious kin who surround and protect Amanda. As different as they are, she and Alejandro find that a genuine friendship begins to blossom, along with the realization that it might be something more. But if the paparazzi get wind of the superstar’s whereabouts, will they threaten the peace of the faithful community for a sensational story? And in the glare of an unwelcome spotlight, and with the unexpected feelings between them, can this couple build a lasting bridge between their vastly different worlds?
JessicaSherrow5 Stars Out Of 5Better than I imaginedMarch 16, 2016JessicaSherrowQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Let me start off by saying that I received this book free from Netgalley in exchange for my honest review. When I received this book, I didn't have high expectations. In fact, I was expecting it to be awful. I love Amish romances, but sometimes they all seem so similar. This one breaks the mold. I loved the different accents portrayed in the book from Amanda's Pennsylvania Dutch to Alejandro's Cuban accent. Every character was thoughtfully planned out and Amanda's innocence was endearing. When I got to the end of the book, I was disappointed--not in the book, but because it was over! Now, I can't wait to purchase the other two books in this series to see how it all ends!

Alejandro is handsome, sweet, charming, respectful, sexy, and good mannered. Who wouldn't want to marry him? Oh, maybe an Amish young woman? Alejandro is a famous singer and he sings rap. Amanda is a pretty, sweet young Amish woman. When she walks in front of his limousine and his driver hits her, their lives begin a collision course of love. Amanda is hurt seriously and must be hospitalized and Alejandro is so attentive to her. He notifies her parents of her accident as she is in Manhattan and they are far away in Lititz, Pennsylvania. He even volunteers to take her home when she is released from the hospital. I have been hearing about this series for a good while and everyone has raved about them. I wanted to read them so badly and when I recently discovered the entire series was available on netgalley, I requested to review them all. I have not been disappointed with the first book. I love Amanda and Alejandro. They are both so sweet and both from completely different worlds. He is English and famous. She is Amish and unknown to the world. I can hardly wait to read the second book in the series. To an English girl, Alejandro would be like Prince Charming. But to an Amish girl, there is such division that much confusion is stirred up for both Alejandro and Amanda. What does her family think of him? What will happen to them as feelings of attraction develop and deepen? Readers will love following this young couple's adventure. I rated this book 5 stars and highly recommend it. I received a free copy of this book from netgalley in exchange for my honest review.
