Christian Romance

My Review:
One of the things that stood out to me the most in this book is Becky’s talent for painting a scene so incredibly well. I felt like I was on the sidewalk looking at that tacky wedding chapel with Celia and Ty. That I was standing in the parking lot when Celia and her little girl saw the car.

 Becky also made the characters come alive. I really wanted to shake some sense into Ty and ask, “What in the world do you think you’re doing!?!” Sorry all you Team Ty people, I still favor Matt from My Stubborn Heart. Maybe I’m just not used to encountering smart men from good families in Christian fiction that want a divorce so they can marry a gal who strings them along. Though he is very charming and caring and generous to both Celia and her daughter.

 I really enjoyed that cute little girl, getting to meet the characters from Undeniably Yours and the uniqueness of a romance where the characters are already married. Plus we get to know a little more about Jake Porter. And I’m very much looking forward to his story!

 Read this if you enjoy contemporary romance with twists, cowboys and cute little girls. And great (clean, but sweep you off your feet) kisses.

Book Description:
Ty Porter has always been irresistible to Celia Park. All through high school—irresistible. When their paths cross again after college—still irresistible. This time, though, Ty seems to feel exactly the same way about Celia. Their whirlwind romance deposits them at a street-corner Las Vegas wedding chapel.
From Becky's pinterest board

The next morning they wake to a marriage certificate and a dose of cold reality. Celia’s ready to be Ty’s wife, but Ty’s not ready to be her husband. He’s a professional bull rider, he lives on the road, and he’s long planned to settle down with the hometown girl he’s known since childhood.

Five and a half years pass. Celia’s buried her dreams so that she can afford to raise her daughter. Ty’s achieved all of his goals. Or thought he had, until he looks again into the eyes of the woman he couldn’t forget and into the face of the child he never knew he had.

How much will Ty sacrifice to win back Celia’s trust and prove to her that their spontaneous marriage can still become the love of a lifetime?

About the Author

During her childhood in California, Becky Wade frequently produced homemade plays starring her sisters, friends, and cousins. These plays almost always featured a heroine, a prince, and a love story with a happy ending. She's been a fan of all things romantic ever since.

Becky and her husband lived overseas in the Caribbean and Australia before settling in Dallas, Texas. It was during her years abroad that Becky's passion for reading turned into a passion for writing. She published three historical romances for the general market, put her career on hold for many years to care for her kids, and eventually returned to writing sheerly for the love of it. She’s delighted to be penning warm, wry, and heartwarming contemporary romances for the Christian market. Her CBA debut, My Stubborn Heart, was a finalist in both the RITA and INSPY awards. Undeniably Yours kicked off her Texas-set Porter Family series. Her newest contemporary romance, Meant to Be Mine, has just hit shelves!

These days Becky can be found failing but trying to keep up with her housework, sweating at the gym, carting her kids around town, playing tennis, hunched over her computer, eating chocolate, or collapsed on the sofa watching TV with her husband.
