Can’t Buy Me Love by Andrea Christenson is a charming contemporary Christian novel loosely based on the Cinderella story. It is the second book in the Deep Haven Collection series.
We all have dreams. It is important to pursue our own dreams and not to be pressured into following the dreams of others. Our dreams will drive us forwards with a passion and a focus.
Sometimes we feel we have to work to earn our place within our family. In contrast in God’s family we are loved for who we are. “[God] loves you for yourself, not for what you can do for Him.” We witness characters who only do things for what they can receive in return. In contrast there are those who give out of the love in their hearts.
There is the theme of trust. We can always trust God. When people have let us down in the past, we find that trust does not come so easily.
God never leaves us. “Even when believers are unfaithful, God still shows up.” Even when we do not feel God or even acknowledge Him, He is there, faithfully by our side walking us through life.
Andrea Christenson has created a wonderful set of characters. The verbal exchanges between the two lead characters were particularly fun and amusing. There was a wonderful light hearted tone.
Can’t Buy Me Love was a charming read that will leave you smiling.
I received this book for free. A favourable review was not required and all views expressed are my own.

He can’t buy his way out of trouble this time…
Housekeeper-slash-entrepreneur Ella Bradley prides herself on being ready for anything. After all, with a father who died—and lied to her—and a stepmom and stepsister who despise her, she has no one else to depend on. But on the biggest night of her life, she’s unprepared to be trapped in an elevator with the man of her dreams.
Wealthy prince-to-a-fortune Adrian Vassos wants nothing more than to shed his reputation as a party boy and prove that he is a savvy businessman. Even, a gentleman. But when he’s trapped with a woman who knows his reputation but not his face, he gives into the temptation to be someone else—and lies.
When serendipity brings them together again—this time to work off community service—can their combined sentences spark a new ending? Maybe…if Adrian’s lies don’t find him out. Again.
The magic of Deep Haven enchants in this modern-day Cinderella story.
