About the Book
Author: Toni Shiloh
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: June 28, 2018
Belle Peterson is hiding a secret. Seeking sanctuary in the small town of Maple Run, she’s intent on starting her life over—one she hopes honors Christ. The plan was going great until an undeniable attraction to Micah has her wondering if she’s changed at all.
Micah Campbell can’t understand why Belle is so uptight and wants nothing to do with her until the gentle whispers of God tell him to befriend her. He didn’t count on the feeling of protectiveness to rise up or that spark of attraction.
Can love really conquer all or will Belle’s past be too much for Micah to handle?

In My Opinion…
I loved that, despite his growing attraction to Belle, Micah is committed to being her friend first. And what makes this guy even more attractive is his willingness to do as God leads him (even if his human nature fights him all the way).
Belle’s story is one that broke my heart (but is way too common). Her heart is in the right place when she “leaves behind her past.” Her attempts at becoming a new creature in Christ are not always on target, but her new friends are there to listen and give insight when Belle struggles most.
At the center of Enduring Love are those things that make a strong foundation to build a relationship upon—Jesus, family, and friendship.
It was a delight to return to Maple Valley and catch up with the crew from “The Pit.” Much like in life, there is plenty of laughter, some deep and meaningful conversations, and an attraction that only grows with time and better acquaintance. Toni Shiloh writes characters who are real—flawed but loved—and that is why each of her books resonates well.

Guest Post from Toni Shiloh
Hey there, Reader Friends!
I’m so excited for the kickoff of Enduring Love. This is book 3 in the Maple Run series and features the story of Belle Peterson and Micah Campbell. You may remember meeting Micah in book 2 of the series, he is Luke Robinson’s best friend. I tell you, this book has a special place in my heart, one that brought out all the emotions in me.
Belle Peterson is living a life filled with shame and regret. She knows mentally that she’s been forgiven, but can’t reconcile the fact to how a redeemed life should look. And when Micah Campbell walks in her life, she’s certain that she has to stay as far from him as possible to keep from back sliding.
Y’all know our wants rarely meet with reality. I had fun throwing Belle and Micah together in Maple Run. Sometimes to their chagrin but always to my pleasure. J Characters from Buying Love (book 1) and Finding Love (book 2) will make an appearance, rounding out the family that has been created in my fictional town of Maple Run, Virginia.
As you take the time to read Belle and Micah’s story, I pray you keep this verse in your mind. “There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.” – Romans 8:1 KJV
God does not want us to live a life of shame and guilt. Once we ask for forgiveness, He gives it to us freely. Walk in an abundant life, my friends, and bless others with the grace you so freely received.
Blessings to you,

thanks for your review. i like that he wants to be her friend first and not rush things. sometimes God has different plans for our lives than we set out for ourselves and we need to learn to roll with Gods plans

Thank you for the review!
Becky Lewis says
We are at the point of encouraging our young adult children that friedship should come before a “relationship” with someone of the opposite sex.
This sounds pretty good!
Chanel Monroe says
A beautifully, well-written review. I like reading about relationships that are built off of friendship; it shows sincerity and care in their investment in the other person that goes beyond physical attraction. This book sounds great! I would love to go on this journey with Belle and Micah.
