When Ciara Littleton takes the plunge and finally joins Facebook to socialize without the limits that her hearing impairment gives her, on a whim, she looks up a childhood friend. In sending him that first message, she ignites the memories of a crush from twenty years ago. But can a simple friend request fix all that stands between them and lead to something more?
Hunter has a lot on his plate. A recent divorce, a pregnant sister, and now, he realizes he’s in love with a woman who lives states away. Can he overcome the boundaries of Internet romance to make this desire turn into something real, or will adversity and distance be their undoing–adversity being in the form of his very own sister–the woman who bullied Ciara so mercilessly long ago?

Nothing is as sweet as a love which transcends barriers of perceived differences, and this is illustrated in Tara Chevrestt’s Love Request. In this emotional read, Ciara reluctantly heeds a friend’s advice and opens a Facebook account so she could join the social scene once again. After all, she ‘d spent the last few years taking care of her terminally ill mother, thus having very little time for any meaningful, romantic relationships. She’s compelled to look up her childhood crush, Hunter, and requests his friendship.
Hunter’s life is presently in turmoil since he’s in the midst of a divorce and his twin sister demands much of his time. However, what happens between Ciara and Hunter gives readers the hope that true love can stand the tests of time and distance.
Chevrestt touches on issues such as bullying, death, divorce, dealing with hearing impairment, love and family relationships. In addition, she depicts Ciara’s point of view so genuinely, I truly believe not even the most insensitive person who reads this story could ever torment, belittle or disregard a differently-able person ever again. For those reasons, I highly recommend this book.
