Undeniably Yours, by Becky Wade | Book Review
REVIEW | When the time is right, I enjoy getting lost in a historical novel, but it’s safe to say the contemporary genre is my favorite. A big reason for this is compliments to author Becky Wade. Any story that fits into the romantic-comedy genre is one I am quick to snatch up. And if this book is anything, it’s a charmer of a rom-com – from the inside out. (This cover design though!)
The first book in her new “Porter Family” series, we do meet all of the Porter siblings which include, Ty; Jake; Dru; and the aforementioned hero, Bo. In true “big brother” fashion, Bo is a wonderful, compelling hero and Becky manages to write a beautiful spiritual journey that often goes missing in the genre. Instead of relying on the people in her life (although Bo’s presence in her life does change things), Meg leans on the grace God extends. It’s an impacting story, and allows us to see new sides of Meg. In this novel, where most people might turn from faith, Meg clings to it, which is also refreshing.
If Bo is one of the more memorable leading men, then Meg is adorable. I enjoy her character very much and am impressed with her sincerity. For those of us who are romantic heart, Becky’s novel has plenty of the [subtle] starry-eyed romantics. In short, there’s sparks that fly between these two, eventually. In their first meeting Meg and Bo are very businesslike, no flirting or funny “meet cute” incidents here, all of which sets up a solid friendship between the pair.
In certain spots, there is still a “rough” edge to some of the writing. But this doesn’t take away the joy of Undeniably Yours. In the end, charming may not be the optimal word to describe this. Its romance is subtle and there is hardly any conflict between Meg and Bo, both things that help make this shine. In the last few pages, there’s a bit of danger which makes the reader wish to flip the pages faster. In Meg and Bo, I’ve met another memorable leading couple and from Becky Wade, a sweet contemporary that is undeniably, a keeper!‘Undeniably Yours’: A Texas Romance with Charm. A review of the 2013 novel by Becky Wade; follows Meg and Bo Porter. #WhattoRead #WeekendReads #GoodReads #GoodBooks Click To Tweet
