I was once again blessed with the opportunity to read a Staci Stallings book. "A Work in Progress" is listed as a "New Adult Contemporary Christian Romance Novel" which basically means college students! I have enjoyed every book I've read that Staci Stallings has written and "A Work in Progress" was no exception.
Rebecca Avery has had a crush on Eric Barnett ever since she bumped into him (literally) in the Student Union. She soon discovers she is in the same psychology class as him and looks forward to Tuesdays when she can sit in front of him and spend time with him (even if he doesn't know she exists). She has never been a "beautiful person" who has it all together and longs to fit in like they do.
Eric Barnett feels like an extra wheel whenever he hangs out with his friends since they all have a "significant other". He thinks he needs to find the perfect girl to fit in with them and feel like he belongs. Enter Holly. She seems to be the perfect girl for him, but she doesn't seem interested in him and stands him up for a date, which leaves him having to go out with her roommate.....Rebecca Avery.
As Eric and Rebecca spend time together working on a project for psychology class, they become friends. They start to realize that their worth has nothing to do with them and everything to do with God and how He sees them. Will Rebecca be satisfied with just being Eric's friend and will Eric realize that there is more to Rebecca than meets the eye?
