Ebook_ShuttheFrontDoor+02The zany story of an alpha male pursuing a headstrong woman and the hilarious entanglements that follow.

Maddy’s dating profile couldn’t be more together. Maddy, however, feels utterly not together when Derek is in the room. She thought living next to her best friend Brittany, (who happens to be married to her brother, Matt) would be the best move of her life; not realizing it came with the complication of Brittany’s older brother Derek. Their undeniable chemistry and passionate personalities make it hard for Maddy to continue ignoring his determined pursuit. This is a feel good romantic comedy with a hint of excitement.

Guest Review from Donna Cline

What I think you should:

Shut The Front Door by L.M. Karen is the second book in the Oak Street series. It is contemporary Christian Fiction. While this book can be read as a standalone I feel like I was trying to play catch up for the first several chapters from not having read the prior book in the series.
What I think about this book:
Given that the two main characters were a man who is called a stalker more than once and a woman who takes pride in her independence to the point of being reckless I shouldn’t have liked this book, however it quickly caught my attention and I just couldn’t look away. Derek and Maddy have chemistry that is through the roof and I appreciate how the author showed that as Christians it is ok to have amazing chemistry, but how you also need to have boundaries so that things don’t get out of hand. I loved the interaction between the characters including the playful brother/ sister banter. This was a fun and sweet read, I look forward to reading more from this author.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from Celebrate Lit, this in no way influenced my review. All opinions are my own.

About the Author

LM Karen writes contemporary Christian fiction romance. As a longtime lover of words, she can generally be found behind her laptop or with a book in her hand. A graduate of Toccoa Falls College, her heart is in the mountains. She eventually made use of the voices in her head by putting them on the page.

More from LM Karen

I like writing characters who are flawed but are loved anyway. Who have maybe made a mess of things, or are consumed by fear, or have some growing to do, because isn’t that all of us? All of my characters get happy endings because as Christians we all get the happy ending. We are flawed, we are human, we are sinful, but we are loved. We are forgiven.

One of my favorite things about Maddy in Shut the Front Door is that she is fearless. She is bold and unapologetic about who she is. But even Maddy with all her confidence still has insecurities about being accepted, and just wants to be loved at the end of the day. She just wants to know that she will be received for all she is by the one person she loves the most. I think that’s a very relatable desire and what we all really want. One of my favorite things about Christian fiction is that we are reminded within the fun and sweeping nature of romance that we are always and eternally loved by God.
