The biggest story of her life is the one he wants to hide.
I’m homeless by choice.
I have no intention of returning to my former life after what I’ve done.
This—living among the filth and discarded remnants of others—is what I deserve.
As atonement for my sins, I give back; I help those who cannot help themselves. But it’s always under the guise of anonymity.
Newspaper headlines throughout the city are clamoring to discover my identity. Including the beautiful woman who manages to see through my “armor.”
She has the capability to put my entire life at risk.
“Sometimes, people lose their way, but the important thing to remember is that it’s always possible to find the road back.” ” The path may be a bit difficult to navigate and hard to discover, but it’s still there.”
“He’s the most tortured soul I’ve ever encountered. He’s bound and determined to carry this burden and not allow anyone else to help with the load, regardless of what it costs him…” “But when it comes to you, it seems to spark something within him.”
“Just remember, Faith. Everyone has secrets. It’s the ones we hold close and keep hidden that are the most dangerous. Because those can be the most damaging. Whether to their heart or to our own.”
“Faith single-handedly breathed life into a heart I thought was lifeless.”
The Good Samaritan has been on my tbr/watch list for a while now. This story sounded so intriguing that I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it. And when I did, I have to say, this story blew me away. It was so unexpected. So unique. It was a story that gripped me from the very first page and had me devouring each and every word.
The Good Samaritan is an unforgettable and unique romance. It’s not your typical love story at all. When I started reading this book, I couldn’t help but fall in love with the characters and their story. I was instantly drawn in. The plot was unlike anything I’ve ever read- A homeless man doing good deeds and saving those in need-I mean how unique is that?? Add in a bright young woman who is completely down on her luck and is just trying to make the best of the cards that life has thrown at her. Faith and Jude were such an unlikely pair, but somehow these two just worked. They were there for one another in the toughest of times and were a shoulder to lean on when needed. Their relationship was slow to develop, but definitely worth the wait. I loved seeing Jude open up and lower his walls. I loved seeing Faith bring Jude back to life and make him see the good that is inside of him; to see the person that he really is.
The Good Samaritan is a powerful story with many important messages. If I learned anything from this story it would be to always find the good in people. Understand that there is always more than what meets the eye. That there are so many good people in this crazy world, they just need someone to show them the way and to take a chance on them. To pay it forward when you can and have hope that there will always be a better tomorrow.
The Good Samaritan is an emotional story that I know I won’t be forgetting any time soon. It is a story of making choices and dealing with the outcome of those decisions. It is a story of helping others and making amends. A story of accepting help when it’s offered and finding your true self. It is a story of friendship and love. But, most importantly, it is a story of second chances. The Good Samaritan was a terrific read from beginning to end. I hope you’ll take a chance on Jude and Faith’s story and be just as captivated by this story as I am.
