Review: Undeniably Yours by Becky Wade
When Meg Cole’s father dies unexpectedly, she becomes the majority shareholder of his oil company and the single inheritor of his fortune. Though Meg is soft-spoken and tenderhearted–more interested in art than in oil–she’s forced to return home to Texas and to Whispering Creek Ranch to take up the reins of her father’s 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’s determined to resent the woman who’s decided to rob him of his dream. 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–her wealth, his unworthiness, her family’s outrage–and earn the right to love her.
But just when Meg begins to realize that Bo might be the one thing on the ranch worth keeping, their fragile bond is viciously broken by a force from Meg’s past. Can their love–and their belief that God can work through every circumstance–survive?
It’s no secret that I absolutely loved Becky’s debut novel, My Stubborn Heart. If you haven’t read it, you should. It was one of my top five books last year – it’s too hard to decide which is number one ;). And hey – you can get it for $5.60 on Amazon right now :). Her sophomore effort doesn’t disappoint. One of the things I told her on Facebook:
I have four more words for you.
Not nearly long enough.
That is all.
Plus Jake best get a story. If he doesn’t for realz, I’ll hunt you down in Indy and have you make one up over lunch.
Meg and Bo are FABULOUS! Undeniably Yours jumped to the top of my reading pile when it arrived, because I absolutely could not wait. Bo is one of those heroes you sigh happily over and wish you could write as well [at least, if you’re a writer like I am]. Meg is a wonderful heroine, scarred and scared, wanting only to make her late father proud but feeling completely over her head.
Plus Bo is a cowboy. What more do you need?
The romance is wonderful. The writing better – drawing the reader into the story world and making her [or me anyway ;)] wish it would last forever. The upside of the ending [if there is such a thing], there’s at least two more books in this series with the stories of Bo’s brothers. The down side? As always, the time between books :(.
Don’t start Undeniably Yours unless you have time to finish – you won’t want to put it down! I know I didn’t – and I can’t wait to reread it!
