Courage Johnathan by Heather Nadine Lenz is an explosive contemporary romance with well-developed characters and a plot that is tightly written and twisty. When his family makes it clear that he either chooses between his fiancée and his trust fund and business, Jonathan is faced with the biggest challenge of his life. Luxury and wealth are the fruits of hard work and he deserves every bit of it. But continuing with his marriage to the woman who made it feel like electricity when he embraced her the first time they met also means living without that wealth. He knows well that, “Money can’t buy love and love can’t make money.” It is the moment to choose between Caroline, the woman from California, or the trust fund and business. How will he choose?
There is one thing that is unmistakable about Heather Nadine Lenz’s writing: she knows how to plot and execute a great story. The writing pulled me in from the very first page and I adored the fact that the author wasted no time in introducing the premise. It is the eve of Johnathan’s wedding and he is contemplating calling it off. Caroline is a complex character with her own rules and standards. The stream of consciousness is impeccably written and it fills in the blanks when it comes to backstory, allowing a full understanding of character background and traits. The writing is gorgeous. No word is wasted; no punctuation misplaced. The inner conflict is written to absolute perfection. Courage Johnathan is an all-night reading affair — the story forces you to read on. The author executes her premise with skill and plumbs its depths for every ounce of emotion.
