Undeniably Yours and Meant to be Mine by Becky Wade-book reviews
A Porter Family Novel, #1
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?
I read this book after reading number 2 in this series. It didn't seem to make a difference but I would have understood the characters better if I had read this one first.
Undeniably yours was a fun, southern charm,clean, romantic read. The story line flowed and kept my interest the whole time. I didn't want to put the book down! I would definitely recommend!! In fact, I had the kindle version of this book and bought the paperback so I could read this book again. I can't wait for book 3 in this series to come out.
Meant to Be Mine
A Porter Family Novel #2
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.
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?
I read this book before reading number 1 in this series. It didn't seem to make a difference but I would have understood the characters better if I had read book 1 first.
This is my first book by Becky Wade and I LOVED IT!!! It was such a fun, clean, funny, romantic book. The story line was well written and kept my interest through out the entire book. I loved how realistic the characters and their problems and memories were in the book.
I immediately went on to read book 1 after finishing this one. I would definitely recommend!! In fact, I had the kindle version of this book and bought the paperback so I could read it again.
