This is an undeniably sweet story. The story was incredibly written. I loved everything about it from the horse ranch to the big house to the office in Dallas. This book had me turning pages late into the night to finish and when it ended, I was happy and sad at the same time. I was happy because it ended on a happy note and sad because it was over.
I love, love, love the characters in this book. Becky Wade has a knack for taking fictional characters and making their lives, emotions, feelings, actions and reactions so real. I love that her characters spoke and acted like real people. They listened to country music, they said things they shouldn't, they acted so normal. Meg is such a sweetheart. I liked her gentleness but I also liked her gumption. She has to deal with real problems, like panic attacks, that many people shrug off as not serious. Bo Parker is a perfect gentleman and reminds me a lot of my husband. He is kind, good, sweet, but fiercely protective of those he loves.
The message of the story, once Bo and Meg grasped it, resonated deep in me. Even when you don't feel like He is, God is with you, leading you down the path He wants you to go. Our job, as Christians, is to wait on the Lord, trust in Him, and let Him lead us. It's so hard to do, especially when you can't see what's up ahead, but God knows.
Overall, I loved this story and look forward to reading more in the Porter Family series.
Undeniably Yours is a down-to-earth romance full of characters that anyone can relate to. Besides a good dose of humor, some major hurt, and a God-honoring couple, there's also an element of danger to spice things up.
I really like Meg. She's so . . . normal. She isn't brilliant at business, and she lacks confidence, but she is competent. She knows that she's a marshmallow--a big softie--but she isn't a pushover. Like just about every girl I know, she has body image issues but likes to feel pretty. She cries at the drop of a hat. She's not the perky heroine of an adventure novel--she's a normal, vulnerable, real human being.
I love how Meg is given a great burden--her family's money and responsibility--and turns it into something greater than just an oil empire. Meg discovers her passion and God provides a way for her to pursue it. Or is it that God provided for Meg over and abundantly, and she, like the wise man in the parable of the talents, finds a way to invest what He has blessed her with to further God's kingdom? In either case, it's a reminder that God gives us dreams and passions, and He delights to give us the means to pursue them.
Contemporary romance is not my first genre to pick up, but when it involves thoroughbred horse racing? Oh, yeah! Love it! Unfortunately, there was virtually nothing in here about horse racing, other than people standing around looking at horses. Fortunately, it's a story with very compelling characters that sucked me into their story.
Meg Cole is a poor little rich girl, the type who could be a brash stereotypical cardboard character we've seen too often before. But she's not. She's vulnerable and sweet and desperately struggling to be strong after the death of her father.
Bo Porter is an ex-marine, a cowboy, and a simple guy from a small town in Texas. Now his future rests in the hands of his deceased oil tycoon boss's daughter.
She's all pink and frilly. He's all denim and straight lines. What on earth do they have in common? Nothing ... but a heart pumping attraction that will keep the reader turning the pages.
This is the first book of what I hope to be a long Porter Family Series. Wow! What an incredible read. The hero of the book is Bo Porter. He is a strong Christian, a Marine, a businessman in the horse industry, and a cowboy. That should be enough for you to drop whatever you are doing, grab a copy of this book, and indulge. The heroine is a very sweet Meg Coles. Meg is 28 years old, a Christian, ridiculously wealthy, and divorced. She has a self-esteem problem and doesn't trust her own decisions since marrying a sociopathic con-man right out of college. Her traumatic marriage/divorce has also resulted in a panic disorder that she fights regularly to overcome. Lucky for Meg, Bo just happens to be the perfect soothing antidote for her anxiety.
I was fairly certain I knew the direction this book was headed, but the author threw in some great plot twists which kept me reading until I finished the book at 1:00 am. This book is a real page turner and inspired me to order the next book in the series immediately which I can hardly wait to get started on. Im giving this book 5 stars because the story was so captivating and the hero so awesome, that I just couldn't stop reading it.
Wow is my first response when I finished this book. Becky Wade is a gifted writer. I was hooked from the beginning and it is a page turner. One of the things I loved about this book is the way the characters turned to God, When they couldn't see s solution for their problems, they sought God for the answers. This is a definite must read.
