The Quiet Eccentric
Age: Under 18
After reading Becky Wade's book, Meant to Be Mine, I had to go back and read this previous book in the series. Undeniably Yours was cute, fun, contemporary romance in it's prime. However, I'm not a huge fan of contemporary romance...
Now I do make exceptions and I find the odd one that I absolutely love, but this wasn't one of them. I'm glad I read it simply because I wanted to know Meg and Bo's story, but it isn't one I'd read again. It's just not my style. I wasn't able to relate to our heroine and the whole plot was kinda just alright.
That being said, I would recommend this book to all you ladies who love a sweet piece of chick-lit. This novel was well written and I'm still a big fan of Becky Wade, even though this didn't turn out to be a new favorite for me.
Becky Wade brings us a contemporary story of a young woman who's life takes a 360 degree turn around after the loss of her wealthy father. the question is: does she want this life or does she long for another? This is a story of faith, love and trust.
Megan Cole is a young woman who's known much turmoil in her life. She lost her mother when she was 2 and has been raised by a distant father. The father/daughter relationship has always been a difficult one. After graduating from college with an Art History degree she married Stephen McIntyre against her father's wishes. After the finalization of her divorce she packed up and moved to Tulsa to start a new life free of judgment and expectations.
3 months ago William Cole passed away and she has inherited a vast empire that not only encompasses 51% of Cole Oil, but also Whispering Creek Ranch. Megan never aspired to be the CEO of Cole Oil so her responsibilities are overwhelming. She depends on her faith and guidance from God and a bottle of Tums. While her father had lavish taste Megan prefers to live simply as possible. She longs to be appreciated and loved for who she is rather than what she has.
Bo Porter is the manager of Whispering Creek Thoroughbred Farm. After spending 6 years in the marines and doing tours in overseas he has returned home to his one true love, working with horses. When Megan meets Bo with the intention of firing him and selling off the horses, he convinces her to give him 6 months in which to pay off her father's investment and to prove how valuable the farm is. Bo begins by showing Megan the farm and horses. Megan is unsure where her inner peace comes from, it's either her friendship with Bo or the horses themselves. As they continue to spend time together things become more complicated than either imagine.
This is a wonderfully written romance with a small amount of suspense interwoven. This is a clean, feel good romance. The plot flows and will draw the reader in. Both characters are very strong and lovable
Oh,Oh, and wow what a story. I had not read any of Becky Wade's books till I read "Undeniably Yours." I had been hearing about this book, so I went out and got me a copy and boy what a book. It did not disappoint me. I absolutely loved it. I believe it is the best book I have read in a while. Ms Wade Knows how to write a good clean Contemporary romance and her characters are so real. Yes I said clean , Your young teenager could read it.
Meg Cole's father dies unexpectedly and she has become the major shareholder in her father's oil business. She is the inheritor of his fortune. Meg comes to Whispering Creek Ranch in Texas to settle her father's oil business, and to shut down the thoroughbred horse farm that her father and Bo porter both invested and started. Bo Porter the handsome cowboy is the manager of the horse farm. Meg gives Bo six months to settle everything out or she will shut the horse farm down. Now the farm is Bo's life. He feels sorry for Meg, but he needs to keep the farm open.
I love both Meg and Bo and I feel sorry for both of them. I also love the way that Meg turns to God and his answers throughout the story. As I got further into the book I did not want to put it down. I was drawn to it. I could not wait to see what would happen next. Tears was rolling down my cheeks before i finished. You will not be disappointed in "Undeniably Yours." I have gotten her first book "My Stubborn Heart" to go back and read it. I can't wait to read her next book "Meant To Be Mine" so I have it now..
Becky Wade's beautiful and heartwarming story, Undeniably Yours was wonderful. It's the sort of book that warms you right down to you toes, providing that 'ah' feeling of contentment.
Her characters were both believable and loveable, except the villiain of course. Written in third person, Wade skilfully penned a gentle, Christian romance, which was captivating, thought provoking and encouraging for those who believe. I found it hard to put down. Cleverly intertwined with the love story, was a sociopathic man, bent on destroying lives.
Trust is one of those things, that once lost, is very hard to regain. Heiress, Megan Cole, had had her heart damaged by her ex-husband in a most humiliating and unkind way. Her father's love had been distant, controlling. She wasn't convinced that she was lovable for who she was, or only for her vast inheritance. Throughout the story however, she learnt a very valuable lesson, that trust in man can provide heartache, but trust in God could provide completeness and peace.
Bo Porter, a strong, handsome and faithful man had always been protective by instinct. His life was his faith, his family and his horses. When he first meets Meg Cole, his future suddenly looked uncertain. He hadn't expected to love the sweet beauty, or lose his heart to her kindness and inner fortitude. He also hadn't expected to almost lose her either.
This was a journey toward new beginnings. A journey toward entrusting all in God's hands, and faithfully trusting Him to guide and direct their paths according to His will.
I loved the writing, I loved the story, and was enchanted with the characters and their lives. I would highly recommend this story to anyone who loves Christian romances with a touch of malice as well.

Wow, I am so excited to have discovered Becky Wade's books! Undeniably Yours is a story of a wealthy oil heiress and the humble cowboy who wins her heart. Meg Cole returns home to Texas and the oil empire her late father ran with an iron fist. After his sudden death, Meg is expected to pick up where her father left off and handle every aspect of the business, including her father's prized horse farm Whispering Creek Ranch. In an effort to consolidate the Cole holdings Meg begins to sell off various parts of the business, including the horse farm. Things get a little complicated when she calls in Bo Porter, the man in charge of the farm, to explain the situation. She attempts to give him a severance package and he bargains for a six month extension to try and prove the farm's worth to Meg. She reluctantly agrees, even to his request to visit the farm and attempt riding lessons. And the rest, as they say, is history :)
