All That Really Matters


All That Really Matters by Nicole Deese 

Molly McKenzie is a beauty influencer. With a following of six hundred thousand, Makeup Matters with Molly is on the radar of big sponsors.  But there is one hitch. She is being asked to show a human interest cause. Convinced that she is more than a pretty face, she approaches Silas Whitaker. He manages a house for young adults who have aged out of the foster system. He helps them transition to independent living.  To say the first interview doesn't go well, is an understatement. Silas is put off by Molly, but Molly is determined to volunteer. She'll show them she isn't self centered!

This is a beautifully written story. The characters are deep and well written. You can't help but get involved in the lives of the residents of the Bridge. And Molly and Silas are so authentic you just want to cheer them on. The side characters are just as genuine, with hurts and insecurities. I love how the story builds and you feel the real depth of each person. Molly's optimism even when it seems all hope is gone. Faith playing a vital role. 

Nicole Deese has written a five star novel. Her characters, dialogue, setting, everything about this book is captivating and engaging. This story is a heartwarming, clean story. I would highly recommend it.

I received a complimentary ebook copy from the publisher, through Net Galley. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
