I’ll admit, I’ve harbored some guilt over my review of Becky Wade’s first novel, My Stubborn Heart. I only gave it four stars. Don’t get me wrong. I loved it from start to finish. It’s one of the few books I have read multiple times. And yet… I wanted more.

With Becky’s sophomore release, Undeniably Yours, I got it. This story gave me everything I loved in the first book, just MORE: more authenticity, more plot, more danger, more humor, more romantic tension. I fell in love with both Meg and Bo f

For a long time now I've been meaning to read Becky Wade's Porter Family series. Well, I've finally started it.

Undeniably Yours, book one in the quartet (the last of which releases in May 2016), features heiress Meg Cole, who must decide what to do with her deceased father's overwhelming estate, and Bo Porter, the former military man willing to fight to keep the Cole horse ranch open. When Meg's past races back into her life, will Bo be able to save her before she's lost to hi

Megan Cole and Bo Porter could not be more different from each other. She is a rich, wealthy heiress of a big fortune and he is a simple farm manager and her employee who has nothing in common with her. And yet, as soon as they meet, the chemistry between them is undeniably. Since her father’s death, Meg has become the majority shareholder of his oil company and has started to fire several people who worked for him, only because she cannot afford to have too many employees. However, things are a ...more
I must have been in the mood for a sweet, uplifting, romantic story featuring a hunky cowboy because Undeniably Yours kept me turning those pages and lamenting the days that I didn’t have a lot of time to read. Sometimes the plot in romance-based stories can drag for me or be very predictable, but that wasn’t the case here. Everything flowed together perfectly. Since I was expecting more of a fun, fluffy romance, Meg’s healing journey and a suspenseful sub-plot definitely spice things up a notch ...more

I read Becky Wade's debut novel ages ago, before I was really into contemporary romances. I was more of a Historical/Amish reader back then, but I did fall in love with My Stubborn Heart. I've become more of a contemporary fan in the last couple of years, but mostly mainstream romances. I few friends have recommended Becky's books so I thought I'd give her another shot and see what the Christian market has to offer, and if anything could live up to Kristan Higgins or Robyn Carr (two of my curren ...more

This one's a little difficult for me to rate. The story itself was right up there on 4.5 for characters and enjoyment. But there were little things... The prose was not particularly brilliant, thus the lack of a full five stars, and the writing focused on what felt like a very encapsulated view of just the present. There were places where I'd have loved to have gone much deeper into a flashback or a scene, and places where the action skipped forward almost jarringly into the future...leaving me ...more

This is an undeniably sweet story. The story was incredibly written. I loved everything about it from the horse ranch to the big house to the office in Dallas. This book had me turning pages late into the night to finish and when it ended, I was happy and sad at the same time. I was happy because it ended on a happy note and sad because it was over.

I started the Porter Family series with the second book, Meant to be Mine, and I've been meaning to get back and read Bo and Meg's story. It totally confirmed why Becky Wade is one of my favorite contemporary fiction authors! The characters are flawed enough to be realistic and relate-able without making them unlikable. I particularly connected with Meg and her issues with anxiety. I loved how she uses coping techniques to manage her overwhelming feelings and searches for a way to come to terms ...more

I loved My Stubborn Heart. I loved Undeniably Yours. Becky Wade has become my must-read, go-to romance writer. Prepare yourself for an emotional journey. Bring tissues. Plan a quiet, contemplative activity after you finish reading so that your heart can catch up to your body. Truly a Calgon-take-me-away experience.
Undeniably Yours told a cute story. It has some fun parts, some silly parts, some suspenseful parts. But I also had quite a few issues with it, unfortunately.

For one, the main characters didn’t exactly seem to pray and wait on God as for their romance. (This also seemed to happen in My Stubborn Heart I believe). Megan had a relationship with God, but Bo’s spiritual life was almost non-existent until the more end of the book. Instead of going to God like Megan did, Bo got angry and thought reall

If a book deserves more than 5 stars, this is the one. Becky Wade is now on my list of must read authors. This is the first book that I have read of hers and it definitely will not be the last.

How do you take a wealthy woman and a lowly ranch manager and pair them together in a romance that one will not forget? I'm here to tell you that the author did just that.

As we follow Meg Cole's life of being thrown into a position she never expected to be in so soon and Bo Porter's life

God created us for romance. Pure, honest, wonderful God-breathed romance. And thus it makes perfect sense that I would love “Undeniably Yours”. Yep, I’m 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 Texas’s most eligible bachelorette and wants more to get out of this rich lifestyle and back to her humble apartment. I could

The cover should have been my first clue that this book is not just your average Christian romance. It's also fun! I was so surprised by author Becky Wade's writing style (in a good way) because it was so realistic. The thoughts and actions of both Meg, the reluctant heiress to an oil company, and Bo, the hubba-hubba cowboy, are believable and sometimes, laugh out loud funny.

(Disclaimer: I received an electronic copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.)

Okay, can I just say Undeniably Yours has one of the cutest covers EVER?

And the story inside lives up to the cover. Meg captured my heart from the beginning and Bo is as swoon-worthy as they come. But most of all, I appreciate Becky Wade's ability to tap into emotion and pull me into the head and heart of her characters. I definitely recommend Undeniably Yours and can't wait for this author's next book!
What a romance!! Sizzling attraction, strong God moments :), haunting past mistakes, danger in the shadows, grace extending life calling, and a romance that beats all odds! Loved it!
Oh cowboy! This was such a good book, It was such a exciting read I could not put it down,lol. Thank you Hannah for picking this book as my May Gem, I totally loved it.

For someone who really doesn't "do" outdoors and especially stays as far away from all things farm-ish as she can get, I simply adore cowboys. Well, books about cowboys anyway. Undeniably Yours is one such book, and Bo Porter is one such cowboy. :) Do you see that grin? That was the grin that was firmly stuck on my face through most of this book! I loved just about everything in this story - Meg, Bo, Meg & Bo together. The tissues that Bo always had handy? *dreamy sigh* The conversations Meg ...more

Review on my blog (to be posted 4/24):

Undeniably Yours was a cute book, but one that never really captured my attention completely. The story moved a little too slow for me and I didn't love either of the main characters (in fact, Meg frustrated me for most of the book). That said, I think Meg showed real growth towards the end and that made me like her more.

Meg's wealthy father passes away unexpectedly and she is left in charge of a very large oil company that she has no interest in. She had a deal with her father that after she graduated, she would be able to do what she wanted to do for 10 years before she came back to her father's oil company. Her 10 years wasn't up. Now, she needs to move back to her childhood home that seemed to be devoid of love from her father and try to figure out how to run an oil company. Filled with anxiety, the one plac ...more

The beginning of Undeniably Yours swept me away - the warm embrace of a sweet romance with a partly grand, partly down-home setting and great characters to populate it. I loved all of the dichotomies and how they added conflict to the story, as well as urging character growth. The book has a great premise that can hook a romance fan, and the overall plot doesn't disappoint.

The romance is really what made and broke the book for me. Meg's struggles and fears trigger Bo's protective instinct, and a

Becky Wade's beautiful and heartwarming story, Undeniably Yours was wonderful. It's the sort of book that warms you right down to you toes, providing that 'ah' feeling of contentment.

Her characters were both believable and loveable, except the villiain of course. Written in third person, Wade skilfully penned a gentle, Christian romance, which was captivating, thought provoking and encouraging for those who believe. I found it hard to put down. Cleverly intertwined with the love story, was a

Review: Much as I adore getting lost in a 1900’s era historical, I think it’s safe to say that the contemporary genre is – overall, my favorite. A big reason complimented to author Becky Wade. Any story that could fit into the romantic-comedy genre is one I am quick to snatch up. And if this book is anything, it’s a charmer of a rom-com – from the inside out. First off, I just have to say kudos to Bethany House for their gorgeous graphic design and photography work on this one – if I thought the ...more

I loved BEcky Wade's first book, My Stubborn Heart. I thought, "Now here's an author I want to read more of." I wasn't disappointed in this book. It just blew me away. For real.

Meg Cole's father has died and left her in control of Cole Oil. Immensely wealthy, Meg is desperately unhappy, suffering panic attacks frequently. She decides to close the horse farm her father started and calls in the farm manager, Bo Porter, to give him the unhappy news. Bo convinces her to give the farm 6 months to pro

Meg has trust issues. And who would blame her, she's the wealthiest woman in Texas. Bo comes into her life and there is immediate attraction! The problem is, he's Meg's employee. He's just a good-looking, truck-driving cowboy and she's Meg Cole! I enjoyed how their relationship grew throughout the book. The suspense toward the end of the book had me going crazy. I read Meant to be Mine first and then Undeniably Yours. I can't wait to read the third book in the Porter family series. I hope to he ...more

I had a hard time identifying with Meg Cole. After all she was filthy rich and I'm not. I did love her character. She was thrust into the role of managing her father's empire after his unexpected death. She must preferred a simplier life. She even choose to love in the guest house on the estate instead of the mansion. I liked it that she had a strong faith. She didn't get this strong faith from her parents or their family but from her beloved nanny who took her to church every Sunday. I couldn't ...more
No matter how many time I tried, I just could not finish this book. I really enjoyed Becky Wade's first book (My Stubborn Heart), but not this one. Finally, I just gave up & passed it on to someone else. Hopefully, they'll enjoy it.

I absolutely loved the way this book was written. The author, Becky Wade, is truly a talented author, and her style is both creative and fresh.

In this book a young woman inherits a tremendous fortune when her father dies suddenly, and as his heir, she is required to run his oil company as well as his hobbies. One of those hobbies is a horse farm, complete with expensive thoroughbred horses and a handsome farm manager who refuses to be fired. That scenario sets the stage for a fantastic tale…one
