Undeniably Yours by Becky Wade

About the Book:

When Meg Cole's father dies unexpectedly, she's forced to return home to Texas and to Whispering Creek Ranch to take up the reins of his 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 knows he ought to resent the woman who's determined to take from him the only job he ever wanted. 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 and earn her love.

Just when Meg realizes she can no longer deny the depth of her feelings for Bo, their fragile bond is broken by a force from Meg's past. Can their relationship--and their belief that God can work through every circumstance--survive?

My Thoughts:

I certainly hope Becky Wade keeps writing novels, because I love her ability to tell a good story.  Her debut novel, "My Stubborn Heart", read like a well produced Hallmark motion picture.  Her second book is just as enjoyable, and could also be a movie for the mind.

Meg Cole is thrust into a life she finds foreign and extremely stressful.  I found my own heart pounding harder as Meg experienced one panic episode after another.  She's adorable and extremely well written as a genuine heroine.

Bo Porter runs the racehorse farm Meg's father loved, but his dream of turning a profit for the farm may be over sooner than he'd imagined.  When Meg fires him and states her intent to close down the farm, all Bo can think of is a way to persuade her otherwise.

Soon emotions enter the picture, and that's when Becky's talent truly shines.  She selects her words carefully, wringing every drop of feeling she can in order to draw the reader into the emotions of the characters.  When Meg's stomach drops in nervousness as Bo approaches, don't be surprised if your stomach drops, too.

As much as I loved Meg and Bo, the background characters truly shine in "Undeniably Yours".  Sadie Jo and Lynn are delightful and incredibly supportive in their respective roles, and Bo's siblings are fun to watch in action.  I would have liked more with Dru, Jack and Ty (sequel, anyone?), but what little I read was enjoyable.

Meg's cousin, Brimm, is a lovable nerd and would fit in nicely with the cast of "The Big Bang Theory".  Mr. Son, Meg's landscaper, is like excellent sourdough bread: crusty on the outside, but soft and sweet on the inside. 

Just about everyone you'll meet in "Undeniably Yours" is a keeper...with one exception.  But I don't think Stephen would be a keeper in any novel.  Unfortunately, I know a few people like him, and I'd advise keeping your distance.

I received an advance copy of "Undeniably Yours" via NetGalley" from Bethany House Publishing in exchange for an honest review.  Becky's second novel is as good as her first, and I'm looking forward to seeing what she comes up with next.  She's a 'must read author' for me, and I think you'll enjoy her novels, too.

"Undeniably Yours" is recommended for a great summertime read.

Happy Reading!
