ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
During her childhood in California, Becky 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. Her first contemporary Christian romance, My Stubborn Heart, has been named a finalist for Romance Writers of America's RITA Award. Her newest release, Undeniably Yours, is available now.
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.
ABOUT THE BOOK
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?

Link To Buy The Book
I don't usually choose to read contemporary romances, but after reading and enjoying My Stubborn Heart earlier this year, I knew it was a pretty good chance I would enjoy anything Becky Wade wrote. I was not disappointed! As a horse crazy girl, the fact that the hero of this book is a horse crazy guy was definitely a big part of what drew me to this book! So needless to say, when I was offered the chance to review it, I jumped at it! I loved this book from the beginning, Meg was so great and I found myself relating to her in many ways, including her love of Oreos! Bo's amazingness won him a spot on my list of favorite heroes! I found I could totally relate to Bo when he accompanied Meg to her cousin's engagement party, as a small town, country girl myself, I feel the same way in any kind of a fancy setting! I loved all the characters, they were all written so beautifully. The message was amazing, it truly touched my heart! I loved everything about this book! In my opinion Undeniably Yours is even better than My Stubborn Heart! And. Oh. My. Goodness! That climax! Without giving away too much let me just say that my suspense-loving side was very, very happy!!!
I highly recommend this book, for everyone, even of you don't usually enjoy contemporary romances! I loved Bo's parents and siblings, and I can't wait to read more Porter family novels!
Oh and one more thing, the epilogue was so sweet, it literally brought tears to my eyes! Which NEVER happens to me, proof that Undeniably Yours is something very special!
I recieved a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher via CFBA in exchange for an honest review. The above is my honest opinion. All thoughts and opinions are one hundred percent my own.
