Leap of Faith by Jamie Blair Book Review

Leap of Faith
Leah Kurtz has finally found a place to call home, a town where she and baby Addy can live in peace, far from the drug-infested place she grew up. Chris is one of the best parts of her new life, the only person who’s ever made her feel safe. And now that she’s found him, there’s no way she can tell the truth:
Her real name is Faith, not Leah. She’s seventeen, not nineteen. And the baby isn’t hers—Faith kidnapped her.
Faith’s history catches up with her when a cop starts asking questions and Chris’s aunt spots her picture in the newspaper. She knows it’s time to run again, but if Faith leaves, she’ll lose Chris. If Chris is in love with a lie, though, did Faith ever really have him in the first place?

I love contemporaries and Leap of Faith sounded like an especially amazing one. Although it wasn’t as great as I hoped it would be, Leap of Faith was still an entertaining, unique read.

Leap of Faith follows Leah as she goes on the run with her baby sister, Abby, so that Abby won't have to grow up in the same terrible enviroment Leah did. 

Leah was just an okay character, and I didn’t think her decisions were the best. Her voice could be hard to relate to at times and it was frustrating that she lied so much. I thought it was really brave how she risked so much to give her sister a better life, though. 

Chris was a great guy, and it was so adorable how he was around Abby. However, he was pretty much instantly attracted to Leah and things got very serious between them really fast. He had some family issues that weren’t gone too in depth about and most of their relationship was based on a lie. 

Leah’s mother was so awful. She was cruel and had no redeeming qualities at all. For the ending itself, it felt so incomplete! It left off before anything was resolved. I wouldn’t be surprised if it was missing pages. If the ending had been more complete, I definitely would have enjoyed this book a lot more.

While Leap of Faith doesn’t have the best romance, it’s still an entertaining, unique contemporary. It's a fast read, too :) I’d give it 3 out of 5 flowers.


  1. I love that it's unique, but that's still a bummer that the romance wasn't that great. And I hate when the endings of books don't conclude in a way that makes you at least satisfied that you read. I'll probably end up passing on this one. Great honest review!

    1. The ending was definitely disappointing :( Thanks!

  2. Since in contemporaries, I tend to focus on the romance and characters, I'm not too sure that I'll be picking this one up.

    Fab review though, Montana! <33
