Review: Finally Accepted by Toni Shiloh

Finally AcceptedFinally Accepted was an emotionally charged, encouraging ending to the Freedom Lake series. I have now read all three books in this series and really enjoyed them all! If you have not read books one and two, you can probably follow along with Finally Accepted, however, the couples from books one and two do make frequent appearances in this novel.

Chloe and Darryl both struggled with feelings of abandonment from their childhoods. The abandonment circumstances were different, as were the way they both handled the feelings that grew from those events.

It was interesting to watch these two people finally acknowledge that they cared for each other, but that was just a portion of the story. Issues of forgiveness, anger, doubt, hurt, belonging, and fear played big roles in this novel and made for a very thought-provoking story.

(4 stars)

I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.


Finally Accepted

There’s only one thing Chloe Smith has ever wanted: family. Yet the DNA results she’s received have thrown her life into a tailspin. Her utmost desire has ended up being the catalyst for shaking her faith. She doesn’t even know who she is anymore, and she’s certainly too messed up for her longtime crush to give her more than a second glance.

Darryl Jones is struggling between his past and the grace God so freely offers. His sins feel too big for him to handle, let alone expect the woman of his dreams to accept. Chloe is the only woman he’s ever wanted and the one he doesn’t deserve.

As they form a tentative relationship and examine their faith, Chloe and Darryl ache to know they are finally accepted and fully loved.
