Becky Wade is an author that I love reading because her books always leave me feeling better than when I started them. Without fail, she manages to pull me into the lives of her characters and make me smile.
Undeniably Yours was more “feel good” than the second book in the Porter Brothers series. Meg and Bo didn’t have any major obstacle keeping them apart other than self-imposed guidelines and some false information. That’s part of what I liked about the book so much. It just made me feel good and warm inside. There is a small bit of suspense near the end, but it didn’t take away from the rest of the story.
I loved the characters. Meg comes across as weak willed because of her anxiety, but she proves to be much stronger than anyone (including herself and the reader) wants to give her credit for. Bo is the perfect hero. He is kind and sweet and good to the core. He is a solid guy and someone that I would genuinely like if he weren’t fictional.
If you are looking for a clean romantic read with Christian values sprinkled throughout, give Becky’s books a try. I’ve enjoyed all her books and would recommend them to anyone who wants a reason to smile.

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?

About the Author:
During her childhood in California, Becky 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 with Avon Books, then put her career on hold for several years to care for her kids, then recently returned to writing sheerly for the love of it. She felt led to move to the genre of contemporary Christian romance and couldn’t be more thrilled with it.
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.
