Aaron’s Patience by Tiffany Patterson

Aaron's Patience by Tiffany Patterson is an intense love story, I think. What I disliked:  I really hated how overbearing the male lead was.  He was possessive, demanding, and unrelenting.  Therefore, I hated how weak the female lead was.  I liked her in the beginning, but I liked her less as the book went on. … Continue reading Aaron’s Patience by Tiffany Patterson
