Publisher's Summary

When her high-profile search for romance led Emily Maynard to dead end after dead end, real love finally found her.

Millions know Emily Maynard Johnson from her unprecedented double appearances on The Bachelor and The Bachelorette. Millions also know that neither of the relationships from those shows lasted much longer than a commercial break.

Overcome with embarrassment following her nationally televised failures at romance, Emily finally committed her heart to the only one she knew would never leave her empty and alone. Abandoning her desire to be chosen by men and finding peace in the fact that she was already chosen by God, Emily found the joy she had been looking for in serving God.

In I Said Yes, Emily tells the story of her life before and after reality TV fame, describing the profound new reality she discovered when she forsook fame in favor of the Lord. At the end of a long, fruitless search for a man, this courageous young woman found the truest love of all waiting right in front of her. To that love, Emily said yes.

    "Ok, not great"

    Book is about Emily's life and journey in finding God and ultimately love. I wish the book had provided more tips and information for HOW she got through the hard times, HOW she grew closer to God, not just simply that she did. I think Emily has a great story that could help a lot of people in similar soul-searching situations, had she gone there. Maybe she'll write another book :-)

    "Interesting read for bachelor/bachelorette fans"

    I really enjoyed hearing the behind the scene take on what goes into the making of the bachelor and bachelorette series and also how Emily's real life has shaped her into the person she is today. I would have preferred she had narrated it herself though after being on tv and people knowing how you talk and sound the narrator didn't match Emily's personality. This would have made it way more enjoyable to listen to in my opinion if you are a fan of hers.

    "Duh clueless & holier than thou"

    Pill popping, self centered and spoiled brat. Boooring even more than her dates on the bachelor & the bachelotette. Don't waste your time

    Story
    "Pretty Cheesy"

    I always loved Emily on the Bachelor/rette but I didn't know she was this cheesy in real life. The story was ok, and I appreciate her being so honest about the experience of losing her fiancé. That made me feel for her. I just could have gone without some of the stuff that sounded like it was purely there to clear her name.

    "Great, but I wish I would have read it in print"

    I LOVE audio books. Ever since I became a mom to 2-under-2 (plus a preschooler and 3rd grader), audio books are the only way I can enjoy one of my most beloved hobbies; reading. That said, this is one book I wish I would have read in print. Emily didn't narrate it, and while I knew that before I started, it just was weird hearing Emily's story told by someone else. Like if you were watching the Bachelorette and some other girl was doing her voiceovers. (By the way, she is just a tad annoying.) It made it less enjoyable. But I loved the message, the story, and of course her happy ending! I would definitely recommend the book- but if you loved Emily on TV, I would recommend reading it the old fashioned way.

    "Surpringly nice to hear"

    I really enjoyed this book, I couldn't put it down in 2 days! Simple but nice narrative of Emily's life, that's helps viewers understand this woman who hid so much and obviously was embarrassed with her past. Praise god for redeeming her life and giving her the love she always dreamed about!

    "Uplifting and Sweet"

    This is a sweet, interesting journey to go on with the author, and very rewarding to hear such genuine and kind assessments of the many people and circumstances along the way. Emily was one of my favorite bachelorettes and this audio book helped me remember why. It gives the inside workings of her life on two different seasons, and shares where she is now.

    Emily is sweet and I loved hearing about her bachelor adventures but most importantly her spiritual journey.

    "Wonderful book"

    I loved this book. The only thing I would have liked more is of Emily read it herself.
