I Said Yes by Emily Maynard Johnson

Goodreads Summary

When her high-profile search for romance led Emily Maynard to dead end after dead end, real love finally found her.

Millions know Emily Maynard Johnson from her unprecedented double appearances on The Bachelor and The Bachelorette. Millions also know that neither of the relationships from those shows lasted much longer than a commercial break.

Overcome with embarrassment following her nationally televised failures at romance, Emily finally committed her heart to the only one she knew would never leave her empty and alone. Abandoning her desire to be chosen by men and finding peace in the fact that she was already chosen by God, Emily found the joy she had been looking for in serving God.

In I Said Yes, Emily tells the story of her life before and after reality TV fame, describing the profound new reality she discovered when she forsook fame in favor of the Lord. At the end of a long, fruitless search for a man, this courageous young woman found the truest love of all waiting right in front of her. To that love, Emily said yes.

My Thoughts

I watched The Bachelor and The Bachelorette when Emily was on and I remember her being my favorite.  I was pulling for her and hoping she would find love both times and was sad when things didn’t work out for her.  So, when I saw this book I was so excited to read and review it!

I wasn’t disappointed at all!  I really enjoyed reading about her life and experiences.  I like reading books that are inspiring and full of faith and you definitely get both in this book.

Since I watched both of her seasons I guess I kind of felt like I knew her.  It made reading this book even more entertaining.  I found myself feeling so happy for her in the end.  I definitely recommend reading I Said Yes, especially if you watched her seasons.  I really don’t think you’ll be disappointed.

*Note: I received a copy of this book from BookLook Bloggers in exchange for an honest review.
