Amanda Beiler could never have imagined the course her life would take when she happened to meet Alejandro Diaz. After catching the eye of the Cuban superstar, she hesitantly decides to leave her small Amish community in order to save it from the relentless attention of the paparazzi. Away from her close-knit family and the familiar rituals of her faith for the first time, Amanda goes on tour with the famous singer, and as she begins to see the world under Alejandro’s care, she starts to appreciate life beyond the boundaries of home. Meanwhile, Alejandro is changing, too, and remembering what it feels like to be with someone who wants him despite—not because of—his celebrity.
As their connection grows stronger and their differences shrink, Amanda will have to make a difficult choice: Return to her old life among the Plain, or stay in the limelight with the man she loves?

Not so far-fetched either, in a way it is similar to commoners marrying princes in our modern day. Diana was a commoner who married Prince Charles. Kate married Prince William and is not a royal by birth. Grace Kelly married the Prince of Monaco. Diana certainly experienced a great deal of shock and difficulties with the paparazzi. Amanda Beiler certainly has challenges in living with Alejandro Diaz. The paparazzi is everywhere they go and that's why she was forced to leave her Amish home and community. The bishop and her parents wanted to send her away or her parents would be shunned. Not wanting to return to Ohio, and loving Alejandro, she chose to leave with him. He loves that she truly loves him for himself and not for what he can give her. He loves her innocence and seeing the world through her eyes. She will see and do things she has never done as an Amish. Will they make it through this experience together or will she decide to return to her Amish roots?
I loved this novel and I could really feel some of the intense emotions Amanda felt when watching Alejandro with female fans or actresses in his music videos. She did not seem to feel the need for a great amount of clothing and shoes and such, but I must confess to envying that as I was reading. It would be nice to go shopping and not have to worry about the cost of an item. I'm looking forward to reading the third book in the series, Plain Again.
I rated this book 5 stars and highly recommend it. I feel that readers of Christian romance will love this even if they are not lovers of Amish fiction.
I received a free ebook of this selection from netgalley in exchange for my honest review.
