Guest Review: Leap of Faith by Jamie Blair

Today, I'd like to welcome my special guest reviewer Jessica! Jessica is an avid reader who also enjoys music and travel. She has a pre-law degree and like me is married to a police officer. She was also game to help me tackle my TBR pile, so hooray for Jessica =)

Goodreads Summary:

Can true love be built on lies? A teen on the run seeks relief and redemption in this gripping, romantic read.Leah Kurtz has finally found a place to call home, a town where she and baby Addy can live in peace, far from the drug-infested place she grew up. Chris is one of the best parts of her new life, the only person who’s ever made her feel safe. And now that she’s found him, there’s no way she can tell the truth:

Her real name is Faith, not Leah. She’s seventeen, not nineteen. And the baby isn’t hers—Faith kidnapped her.

Faith’s history catches up with her when a cop starts asking questions and Chris’s aunt spots her picture in the newspaper. She knows it’s time to run again, but if Faith leaves, she’ll lose Chris. If Chris is in love with a lie, though, did Faith ever really have him in the first place?

Jessica's Review:

The idea behind the story was a good one, Faith taking off with her newborn half-sister in order to save her a lifetime of misery and being surrounded by drugs and who knows what else, but that was the only thing good about the book. There wasn't any real character development to allow the reader to get an attachment to the characters and the descriptions of the characters were vague at best. The story felt rushed, introducing other characters and then just breezing through their stories, and then the book just suddenly ended. Also, by the end of the book, I was so disgusted with Faith and her solution to her problems that there is no way I would pay for the next book to see what happens.

2/5 Stars

Thanks to the publisher for a copy of this book for review!


  1. Sorry it wasn't impressive. Thanks for the honest review.

  2. Ooh, this sounds really intriguing. Maybe not something I'd pick up without a recommendation, just because it's so different than what I usually read but interesting anyway!
