God created us for romance. Pure, honest, wonderful God-breathed romance. And thus it makes perfect sense that I would love Undeniably Yours. Yep, Im in love and I have no shame admitting it.
Meg and Bo make a *cute* couple. I think they are about the cutest book couple I have ever read. I mean seriously. Cowboy meets millionaire heiress that could care less about being Texass most eligible bachelorette and wants more to get out of this rich lifestyle and back to her humble apartment. I could so easily identify with Meg, shes a simple girl put in surroundings that immediately challenge and raise all kinds of insecurities.
Bo is pretty close to a perfect hero. I love an observant hero and Bo knew how to treat a lady. His mama taught him right! Sure, I like the flawed or bad-boy book hero, but every once in a while, its nice to see a break in the mold and have a genuinely good guy. The adoration almost oozedin a good way. *wink*
The romance is satisfying. The writing top notch. The characters so incredibly loveable. The plot tempting me back again and again. The dialogue smooth and subplots seamless. I loved it. So much to enjoy and sigh over and just plain love watching unfold. Very much worth the investment of time!
This review is my honest opinion. Thanks to the author and publishers for my copy to influence/review.
I love this book and hated to come to the end of Meg and Bo's story. They are both appealing and likeable characters, who grabbed my heart from the very beginning. Meg is a perfect heroine, relying on God to see her through every minute of every difficult day. Bo is everything a hero should be, and everything that Meg needs. The biggest problems are that they come from two different worlds; she is the boss and he is the employee; and Meg is searching for meaning and purpose in her life, while Bo has seemingly found his life's calling. It's a very intriguing situation and an exciting read to find out how everything comes together.
What I find most encouraging in this book is Meg's total reliance on God, when she is at the end of her own strength. It reminds me so much of trauma in my own life and how God was, and still is, my lifeline. I think this is very therapeutic and might be helpful to many readers, who find themselves in unmanageable circumstances.
Although Undeniably Yours is primarily a wonderful romance, I was pleasantly surprised to encounter a measure of mystery and suspense lurking in the pages, which ramps up the tension quite a bit. The plot line of the entire story is enjoyable and includes interesting, additional subplots, creating a very satisfying read.
The well-developed main characters, are complemented with quirky and endearing secondary characters that round out the storyline and add depth and amusement. I particularly like Lynn, the housekeeper, and Meg's nanny, eighty-year-old Sadie Jo.
If you like contemporary romance, don't miss Undeniably Yours by Becky Wade.
Meg Cole returns home to Whispering Creek Ranch after her father dies, to take over the leadership of Cole Oil. One thing she wants to do is dissolve her fathers Thoroughbred racehorse farm. She gives Bo Porter six months to complete the task. Bo Porter has poured everything into the Thoroughbred farm he built with Megs father. He should be angry with the woman who is trying to, not just take away his job, but destroy his dream. Instead he finds himself very attracted to Meg and wanting to protect her from people who want to take advantage of her. Meg finds that when shes with Bo, he gives her a strength and peace she hasnt experienced since her fathers death. Both have a deep faith and a desire to following Gods leading. Meg has a hard time with trusting people thanks to a very painful past experience. Bos praying she learns she can trust him with her heart as well as everything else. But what will happen when something comes up that causes Meg to doubt Bo? Is their love and faith strong enough to survive it?
I absolutely love the cover of Undeniably Yours and knew I had to read it! Becky Wade is a new author to me so I didnt know what to expect. What I found was a terrific story, loaded with characters that will steal your heart, a character that would steal you blind, suspense that will keep you flipping pages and a romance that will send your heart pounding! I must say though, for me, it was a bit slow in the beginning but once it took off I couldnt put it down. The story dealt with some complex issues but also had a generous portion of hope and encouragement. There probably arent a lot of folks wholl read this story that would be in Megs position but you could totally understand why Meg felt the way she did. Meg was a sweet girl with a generous heart who found her strength in the Lord. Bo was the consummate, sigh-worthy hero that you just fall in love with. Strong, gentle and honorable but not perfect. Together they were romantic dynamite! One thing I really appreciated was the way Meg consulted the Lord before making decisions, by reading His Word and praying. Something we should all be doing. I also liked how she recognized how the Lord was always watching out for her through others. It made me think of all the times the Lord sent just the right person to me at just the right time. The suspense at the end was spell-binding and kept me glued to story til the last page was turned. If you enjoy a tale that has a little of everything, humor, romance, suspense and some nuggets of wisdom, then you will love Undeniably Yours!

Sweet, tender love story that is so good! I can't wait for the next books of the series! Very highly recommended!!
I was moved by this love story and the passion that developed between Meg and Bo. It did take me some time to get invested in their relationship, but when I did, their struggles came alive for me. The romance definitely made my heart beat a little faster. Full review at my website.
