A Writer's Review of “Undeniably Yours” by Becky Wade

{Dawns Review}

After reading (and loving) Becky Wade's first novel (My Stubborn Heart, Bethany House, 2012), I was definitely looking forward to Undeniably Yours. Her true-to-life way of bringing her characters to the page is definitely refreshing. One of my favorite things about her writing is that she doesn’t sugar-coat the real, human emotions and desires of her characters.

This book was quite different than her first. I really wasn't expecting that, and it took me a little time to re-adjust my mind and expectations. Instead of seeing the story from only the hero and heroine, the reader witnesses the story through four characters: the hero, the heroine, another young woman the heroine is helping, and the "bad guy". Personally, I thought that was a lot of character perspectives, but it didn't make me like the book any less. 

Bo Porter and Meg Cole were perfect for each other—despite the differences in life-style, how they'd been raised and that he was technically his employer, just as her father had been before her. There's just no denying the crackling fire between two people when they're soul-mates. And let me tell you, if anyone knows how to write two characters who are soul-mates and who NEED to be together, it’s Becky. She has an amazing talent and intuition for knowing just what it is her characters are looking for exactly in someone to trust their heart with… as well as with what they want out of life in general.

And, of course, there’s a perfectly timed break-up scene in Undeniably Yours—as well as the scene before it—that just rips your heart out (those are the BEST!). You might think me mean-hearted, but I do love to see characters hurt and struggle through broken hearts and damaged emotions… as long as there’s a happy ending in the end.

I definitely look forward to Becky’s future books following Bo Porter’s siblings, Ty, Jake and Dru in the coming years. I was given a paperback copy of this book in exchange for an honest review, and I give Becky Wade’s Undeniably Yours 4 stars.    


{More about Undeniably Yours} 


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 My Stubborn Heart}


Click HERE to read my 5 Star review.


Kate Donovan is burned out on work, worn down by her dating relationships, and in need of an adventure. When her grandmother asks her to accompany her to Redbud, Pennsylvania, to restore the grand old house she grew up in, Kate jumps at the chance.


Upon her arrival in Redbud, Kate meets Matt Jarreau, the man hired to renovate the house. Kate can't help being attracted to him, drawn by both his good looks and something else she can't quite put her finger on. He's clearly wounded—hiding from people, from God, and from his past. Yet Kate sets her stubborn heart on bringing him out of the dark and back into the light...whether he likes it or not. 

When the stilted, uncomfortable interactions between Kate and Matt slowly shift into something more, is God finally answering the longing of her heart? Or will Kate be required to give up more than she ever dreamed?
