A Love Like Ours by Becky Wade
My rating: 5 of 5 starsThis is the first book I have read in this series, and permit me to say I had no trouble connecting with this material from the moment I began reading it. The writing style is perfect for this genre, and I was able to read it in almost one sitting. I simply adored the characters, and it is a completely clean book. It is also Christian, but it is never preachy, and the Christian/gospel message is woven seamlessly into the framework of the story.
If you are looking for a feel-good romance that never comes across as being sappy, this may be the book for you. I appreciated the flashback on occasion so I was able to fill in the details I didn’t know. And the interactions between our couple were absolutely flawless. While there were no “laugh-out-loud” moments, there were plenty of lighter moments that caused me to smile and feel good about life in general. I plan on keeping an eye out for more books by this author in the future. Though predictable, it is the refreshing kind of predictable.
I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. I was not financially compensated, and all opinions are 100 percent mine.
(Porter Family #3)by Becky Wade
Paperback, 368 Pages
May 5th 2015 by Bethany House Publishers
Deeply scarred from a day he wishes he could forget during his military service, Thoroughbred trainer Jake Porter has given up on love. He struggles against symptoms of PTSD, lives a solitary life, and avoids relationships.
When Lyndie James, Jake’s childhood best friend, returns to their hometown of Holley, Texas, Jake cautiously hires her to exercise his Thoroughbreds. Lyndie is tender-hearted, fiercely determined, and afraid of nothing, just like she was as a child. Jake trusts her with his prized racehorse, Silver Leaf, then battles his hopes for his horse against his increasing fear for Lyndie’s safety.
Though Jake and Lyndie have grown into very different adults, the bond that existed during their childhood still ties them together. Against Jake’s will, Lyndie’s sparkling, optimistic personality begins to tear down the walls he’s built around his heart. A glimmer of the hope he’d thought he’d lost returns. Will Jake ever be able to love Lyndie like she deserves, or is his heart too shattered to mend?
During her childhood in California, Becky Wade 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 for the general market, put her career on hold for many years to care for her kids, and eventually returned to writing sheerly for the love of it. She’s delighted to be penning warm, wry, and heartwarming contemporary romances for the Christian market. She’s the Carol Award and Inspirational Reader’s Choice Award winning author of My Stubborn Heart, Undeniably Yours, and Meant to Be Mine.
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.
