Review ~ John's Love by J.J. Valentin

John’s LOVE is a surreal romantic fantasy about a man’s unconditional love for a woman he knows he’s destined to be with, even though, he can’t prove it… 
It all begins when John hears Sarah’s loud and boisterous laugh as he walks passed her in the distance behind their High School. The sound of her laughter draws his eyes towards her, engulfing his heart with love, and flooding his mind with visions of their past lives and love in Heaven. At first, he fears his visions may be a delusion, possibly an early symptom of Schizophrenia, which is the disease that has burdened many of his family. But John’s instant love for Sarah is so strong he’d fight today’s laws of reality in good faith that destiny and true love exist. His soul remembers their past but knows nothing of their future… 
He goes through many trials in his life trying to be with Sarah but his destiny is threatened when the greatest evil of all, Satan, manifest himself into the form of a human being and brings “Lucas” into Sarah’s life; captivating and blinding her very soul away from John. 
The concept behind creating this book was to have all of the best parts of a Love story that everyone adores, yet, all the while still remaining original. This story has long distance hardships which you’ve seen in the Notebook, immediate enemies battling to win the heart of a woman (figuratively speaking) which you’ve seen in Twilight, unconditional love beyond this life which you’ve seen in What Dream’s May Come, along with fighting today’s modern ideology that what you see in front of you is all there is and all that ever will be. John’s LOVE has a religious undertone but don’t be mistaken…it has sex, drugs, alcohol, prostitution, the struggles of unconditional love, forgiveness and death all wrapped into one endearing story.

My Review:

I have to start by saying that I flippin' loved this book. John's Love is a love story like no other. The trials that John and Sarah must endure are not easy, of course...when is any trial easy, right? I shed a few tears throughout this book. The love between John and Sarah is so intense but when Satan comes along to destroy their love they have to make the decision to keep fighting to climb this mountain or to give in to temptations and allow themselves to be defeated by their trials.

Their love is really put to the test when Satan decides to get involved to try and break them up. Satan never appears as a dark, scary and evil creature, he always comes disguised as a good time in an attempt to sway his target away from God. If he came as the obvious then it would be easy to say no to temptation.

If you are absolutely against reading a book that references God, Satan, or the Bible then this may not be the book for you. Personally, I love books with Christianity weaved in.
