Rocky Lionakis has been a wheelchair user since a fall in college. He plays bass guitar in Cornerstone Fellowship's worship band and shares his testimony every week with the campers at Towering Pines summer church camp. At peace with his chair, he has settled into a boring but successful career in technology... but then stunning camp counselor, Gia Rinaldi, enters his life and turns it upside down. Lifelong preacher's kid and occasional wild child, Giavanna Rinaldi, has always learned things the hard way. With a trail of bad choices in her wake, she has finally grown up and found her niche as a student of Christian child psychology. She returns to Camp Towering Pines where she's worked since high school, but unsettling dreams and an unexplained illness lead her to a harrowing discovery. Will Rocky and Gia's budding romance survive her trauma? And is their bold decision an answer from God, or a serious step outside of His perfect will?

ksnapierLima, OHAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Celebratory bookJuly 16, 2014ksnapierLima, OHAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Unexpected Marriage by Carla Rossi is about two people who meet while working at a summer camp. Rocky is a strongly independent man who has learned to adapt to life in a wheelchair. At time he appears to be, almost, too independent.
Gia is the daughter of an evangelical minister. She became a rebellious teen who then became an adult that had trouble believing in herself or trusting others.
Both of these adults met and filled holes that the other had within their hearts. Along their paths they had to learn to trust in God more than themselves.
This is a book worth celebrating. As I read it I found myself recommending it to others, even before finishing it. Rossi made me feel as if Gia and Rocky were friends, yet I know their lives, after the book ended, would go on successfully.
I was given this book by the author and bookfun.org in exchange for my honest and fair review.
Mrs ARS5 Stars Out Of 5Cute CoupleJuly 14, 2014Mrs ARSQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Unexpected Wedding by Carla Rossi is a story about Rocky and Gia and how they meet, have a first date, and get married after only knowing each other a few weeks. It is in a way a modern day marriage of convenience story. Rocky, due to an accident is an athlete in a wheelchair. Gia, a camp counselor who enjoys her job of working with children, met Rocky at the camp in a very unconventional way. From the start the sparks fly. After a really great first date, Gia receives some devastating news from her doctor. Not wanting to face her parents due to a long resentment, Rocky swoops in and she begins to rely on him. However, he believes the best way he can take care of her is by marriage. After that decision is made they marry within a couple of days to the surprise of Rocky's friends and much to the surprise and hilarious reaction of both of their parents. This was a sweet tale dealing with some difficult subjects of two people deciding to love each other through thick and thin. They just both really need to tell each other that. I received this book from The Book Club Network, (TCBN) and the opinions are my own.

BeckySW MIAge: 45-54Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Baggage threatens to cripple all.May 17, 2014BeckySW MIAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Gia and Rocky meet at camp. It's instant attraction, but both parties bring their share of baggage. Rocky is afraid to let people do too much for him, and is fiercely independent. He needs to prove he can still do for himself, even though he is in a wheelchair. Gia is classically beautiful, but with a background of a pastors'(plural) kid's family and a mega church at that, hurts piled up and resentment is deep. Circumstances and desire conspire to cause Gia and Rocky to wed, but will they be able to withstand the pressures that their different backgrounds, needs, and hurts require? Can they look to God for their own personal healing so they can impart healing for each other, or will they tear each other apart in their efforts for self-survival and healing? Secondary characters are a surprising hoot and add quite the touch of humor to a book somewhat fraught with friction and anxiety of unsettled relationships.
