If you are looking for a young adult romance novel without all of the supernatural or cosmic aspects, look no further than Temptation by Karen Ann Hopkins.
The synopsis of the book reads, "Your heart misleads you. That's what my friends and family say. But I love Noah. And he loves me. We met and fell in love in the sleepy farming community of Meadowview, while we rode our horses together through the grassy fields and in those moments in each others arms. It should be Rose and Noah forever, easy. But it won't be. Because he's Amish and I'm not."
I have never been much of a romantic when it came to books. However, the Amish/non-Amish romance caught my attention, because it was different.
The story begins with young Rose, who has just moved to Meadowview from the big city. She is upset to have left her friends and school to move to such a rural area, until she meets an Amish boy named Noah. Both understand their romance is against Noah's ways, but they refuse to stop seeing one another. However, their sneaking around could come at a very high cost when an incident threatens to separate the two forever.
The book is written for young readers and immediately sucks you into the story line. The teenage romance is believable. Hopkins takes some time to build the relationship, instead of jumping into it as other YA romance novels tend to do.
