I cannot tell you the last time I watched an episode of The Bachelor or The Bachelorette. I think it was before I met my husband….so it has been at least 10 years. I was drawn to this book by the cover. It didn’t matter that I hadn’t seen the show in years….you can still enjoy the book. It was a great read!
When her high-profile search for romance led Emily Maynard to dead end after dead end, real love finally found her. Millions know Emily Maynard Johnson from her unprecedented double appearances on The Bachelor and The Bachelorette. Millions also know that neither of the relationships from those shows lasted much longer than a commercial break. Overcome with embarrassment following her nationally televised failures at romance, Emily finally committed her heart to the only one she knew would never leave her empty and alone. Abandoning her desire to be chosen by men and finding peace in the fact that she was already chosen by God, Emily found the joy she had been looking for in serving God. In I Said Yes, Emily tells the story of her life before and after reality TV fame, describing the profound new reality she discovered when she forsook fame in favor of the Lord. At the end of a long, fruitless search for a man, this courageous young woman found the truest love of all waiting right in front of her. To that love, Emily said yes.
The book was really interesting. I enjoyed getting to know Emily and her experience on both of the shows. I enjoyed reading about the real “Emily”. This was a fast read for me. It was entertaining and I can’t wait to pass it on for someone else to read. It’s about faith and love. I love it. You can purchase it here.
