Undeniably Yours

Undeniably Yours by Becky Wade


Recently I received a copy of the following book in exchange for my honest review. This post will have book purchase advertisement. The FTC requires you to be given a fair warning! Now relax and enjoy the review.

 

Undeniably Yours
A Porter Family Novel, #1


    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?

Becky's biography:

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 with Avon Books, then put her career on hold for several years to care for her three kids, then recently returned to writing sheerly for the love of it. She felt led to move to the genre of contemporary Christian romance and couldn’t be more thrilled with it.
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.
 

My thoughts:

Meg's father died and now she has to manage Cole's Oil all by herself. A company her father had, along with his father, that has passed on from generation to generation. Meg's father had his hobbies like horse ranches and other things. She's ready to close down the horse ranch, but Bo the manager of the ranch doesn't want her to close it down. He would do almost anything to convince her to keep it open, until he starts developing feelings for her. Something a employee and employer should not do.

This has been a pretty good book. I haven't finished it yet, although I want to I've just had a hard time reading lately. It's been slow but it's coming along.  Another reason I have had a hard time reading is I'm drawn more towards historical romance than modern romance. I'm not saying it's bad but it's a lot different than historical. I haven't found anything of question but some people have said there are a few places in the book where the character curse under their breath, or are in a bar in one part. I haven't gotten there yet.
