A Love Like Ours

by

Becky Wade

My Rating: 4 out of 5 Stars

My Review:

The Porter family has certainly made their way into my heart. Becky Wade is one contemporary author who has made me fall in love with contemporary. While I still prefer Historical Fiction, I will still venture outside that genre to read a Becky Wade novel!

Jake Porter is an ex-Marine who suffers from PTSD. His childhood friend Lyndie James has moved back to Holley, Texas but he sees no good in opening up to her. Lyndie is determined to find her way back into Jake’s life. She wrangles a job out of him and is determined to become the jockey for a new horse at the ranch that has great potential. But Lyndie’s determination goes far deeper as she seeks to heal Jake from his emotional scars. Lyndie soon realizes that without God, it will be impossible for Jake to heal.

Not only are Jake and Lyndie fantastic characters, but Becky Wade has created a loveable cast of other characters. From Lyndie’s ill sister Mollie, to Amber’s adorable son Jayden, all these characters come together to create a touching story of healing and redemption. I’m not sure if this is the last we’ll see of the Porter’s (there’s still sister Dru!!) but either way I look forward to reading future novels from Becky Wade!

I received a copy of this book from the publisher Bethany House in exchange for my honest review. I received no compensation for this review, nor was I required to write a positive review. All opinions stated are my own.

[Book Review] Undeniably Yours by Becky Wade

This week must be my “contemporary” book reviews week… Cuz here’s another one!

Undeniably Yours

by

Becky Wade

My Rating: 4 out of 5 Stars

My Review:

A Delicious Chick Flick!

 

My first taste of Becky Wade… and boy does it taste good! I’m not always a fan of contemporary books because I’d much rather travel back in time while reading (hence my overload of historical fiction book reviews). But when I do read contemporary, I would love to read Becky Wade! I’ve had My Stubborn Heart sitting on my shelf waiting to be read for quite some time, and while I still haven’t had the chance to read it, I will be getting to that after I finish some review books I’m reading. I’m hoping it’s as good as Undeniably Yours!

 

Undeniably Yours follows the story of Meg, who recently inherited her Father’s share in his oil company and his entire fortune. Meg is not really interested in becoming a share holder or putting up with a huge fortune, and she finds herself overwhelmed with huge decisions she must make. One decision she makes is to shut down her father’s racehorse farm. But when the manager, Bo Porter, protests, Meg gives him six months to work with it.

 

Bo Porter is upset with this woman who just walks in and is threatening to shut his dream down. But soon he realizes that this woman isn’t just any woman, and he finds himself drawn to her.

 

But Meg has a past she is trying to leave behind but somehow things catch up to her and she must work through some issues. While working through these, she realizes she feels called to help widows and orphans.

 

Like I said, I really enjoyed this book. I loved the romance aspect. I loved the suspense aspect. I loved the chick-lit that it was! I would definitely recommend this book if you’re looking for a sweet chick book to read. I’m looking forward to reading more from Becky Wade!

 

I received a free ebook copy of this book from the publisher through NetGalley in exchange for my honest review. I did not receive any compensation for this review nor was I required to write a positive review. All opinions stated are my own.

“What I’m Reading” Wednesday

I’ve been overwhelmed with reading lately! In fact, I’m in the middle of quite a few books right now (I think 4 fiction…?). Anyways, I’m trying to get all caught up with all my reviews. I still have a ton to read for NetGalley and I have had a few hard copies of books coming in from Bethany House/Blogging for Books. So, I’m definitely enjoying all this reading! But I can’t wait to get back to the point where I’m only reading ONE book at a time. For now, here are two books that I am currently reading:

A Bride for All Seasons

by

Margaret Brownley, Debra Clopton,

Mary Connealy & Robin Lee Hatcher

Book Description via Goodreads:

1800s mail-order bride catalogs facilitated many happy marriages. Here are the stories of four couples who owe their wedded bliss to creative editing by The Hitching Post publisher.

“And Then Came Spring”—Margaret Brownley

Sheriff Tom Garrett wants vengeance on his brother’s murderers, but he must think of his orphaned nephew. Then Mary-Jo shows up, swearing she married Tom’s brother by proxy and he’d neglected to mention a son.

“An Ever-After Summer”—Debra Clopton

Widower Matt McConnell wrote his ad with no room for misunderstanding—Bible believers need not apply. But Bible-thumping Ellie shows up on his doorstep. Matt’s so desperate for her help that he accepts.

“Autumn’s Angel”—Robin Lee Hatcher

Luvena Abbott is a singing sensation in New York. But as guardian to her brother’s children, she has few options to provide a home. Clay Birch won an abandoned theater in a poker game. The Hitching Post editor thinks they’ll make a perfect match.

“Winter Wedding Bells”—Mary Connealy

David Laramie is looking for a woman to care for his children. In exchange he’ll make her financially comfortable for life. But no woman wants to marry a dying man. Then Megan responds to his ad. It seems his “edited” letter contained no mention of him dying.

I have read the first two novellas so far and have enjoyed them very much. Those were actually the two authors that I have never read anything from so I’m excited to read the Robin Lee Hatcher and Mary Connealy novellas!

 

The other book I am currently reading is:

Undeniably Yours

by

Becky Wade

Book Description via Goodreads:

When Meg Cole’s father dies unexpectedly, she becomes the majority shareholder of his oil company and the single inheritor of his fortune. Though Meg is soft-spoken and tenderhearted–more interested in art than in oil–she’s forced to return home to Texas and to Whispering Creek Ranch to take up the reins of her father’s empire.
The last thing she has the patience or the sanity to deal with? Her father’s thoroughbred racehorse farm. She gives its manager, Bo Porter, six months to close the place down.
Bo’s determined to resent the woman who’s decided to rob him of his dream. But instead of anger, Meg evokes within him a profound desire to protect. The more time he spends with her, the more he longs to overcome every obstacle that separates them–her wealth, his unworthiness, her family’s outrage–and earn the right to love her.
But just when Meg begins to realize that Bo might be the one thing on the ranch worth keeping, their fragile bond is viciously broken by a force from Meg’s past. Can their love–and their belief that God can work through every circumstance–survive?

This is the first book of Becky Wade that I’ve read. I have had My Stubborn Heart on my shelf for a while but haven’t gotten around to it. When I got the chance to review this book, I jumped on it. It looked like an enjoyable read and the cover is just beautiful! I am happy to say that I am definitely enjoying this book! I am about halfway done 🙂

What are you reading this Wednesday?
