True to You
Unlike Nora, former Navy SEAL John Lawson is a modern-day man, usually 100 percent focused on the present. However, when John, an adoptee, is diagnosed with an inherited ...more
I took a couple of days to try to gather my thoughts on this book, so that I could maybe do a little more than blather and gush. But, nope. Pretty sure this review is going to pretty much be blathering and gushing.
Those who follow my reviews know that fantasy is my favorite genre. I can get behind a good romance now and again, but romance novels very rarely make it onto my favorites shelf. Especially Christian romances, as they tend to lean towards cheesiness and, though ...more
American hero, John Lawson is quite the opposite from those Nora would consider 'her' people. She is a local genealogist who runs the local historical village. He is an ex-Navy SEAL, who has received the prestigious Medal of Hono ...more
True to You is Nora’s story.
She’s a bookish librarian-researcher-genealogist who is a devotee of a certain British ...more
After the heartbreak of her last relationship, Nora has barricaded herself behind a facade of dowdy clothing, old fashioned hairstyles, and her work as a genealogist and the owner of a historical village. Who better to break through this barricade than a Navy SEAL?! With his gruff gentleness and his forced need to dig into ...more
After reading the prequel novella to the Bradford Sisters Romance series (Then Came You), I knew I would want to read the rest of the series. So when True to You came available through Bethany House, I grabbed it. I didn't get to read it right away, but when I did, I was immediately pulled into the story.
I loved John and Nora, reading their romance was such a joy. I also loved both of Nora's sisters and I cannot wait for both Willow and Britt's stories. Nikki, Valentina, and Grandma all had me laughing like crazy!
The faith story in this book touc ...more
I love this book and just finished it for the second time, this time I listened to it on Audible. I had forgotten exactly how much I loved this story. The narration was good. I liked how the narrator voiced most of the characters, with the exception of Corbin (a side character in this story who becomes a major character in book two).
Wow! This contemporary romance was packed with emotion! The author did a truly wonderful job of making me feel what these characters we ...more
Could there BE a more Navy SEAL, dream-tough-guy-sounding-name than John Lawson?? Tell me this. Like, that alone should have been enough to make Nora fall in love with him. Add to the fact that the dude is genuinely this GREAT GUY? (view spoiler)[ Poor little British dude never had a CHANCE. (hide spoiler)] I mean, big tough Navy SEAL dude even let her talk him into sitting down and EATING TEA AND (cinnamon) TOAST. And ho ...more
The characters were so endearing. John and his search for his birth mother tugged on my emotions and there were a couple scenes that really got to me. I loved Nora and her sisters, so I can hardly wait to read the books about them.
All in all, a moving story. I think it is Wade's best and my favorite. I definitel ...more

True To You is book one in A Bradford Sisters Romance series. I really loved True To You and Becky Wade did a fantastic job on the story and the Characters , both were well developed. Wade had me hooked . I could not read fast enough to turn the pages faster to see what was going to happen next. I could not put it down , I was reading in the night to see how everything turned out. Wade did not disappointed. I caught myself laughing ...more
I’ll get back to John in a minute but “Great Scott” do I love Nora!! For starters, she is delightfully bookish and has a tendency to fall in love with fictional characters. She’s a librarian, a historian and a genealogist. She uses words like “indubitable” and “tout” on a regular basis. S ...more
Another aspect that I loved about th ...more
I’m not sure you could find two characters who are more different to the Porters and their wives than Nora Bradford and John Lawson. In Nora, Becky Wade has managed to capture all the endearing quirks you might expect from a genealogi ...more
Becky Wade pens contemporary Christian romance books. I have loved every one of her stories. I learn along with her characters, in each book, to trust God more in a variety of areas of life and through various situations.The cover of her newest novel, True to You – the first full-length novel in her Bradford Sister Romance Series – is beautiful. It sort of brings the past into the present with her family’s gorgeous historical ancestral home.
The Bradford sisters were a joy to get to know. The fas...more
This was a cute read! I loved getting to know the Bradford sisters, and CANNOT wait to read Willow & Britt’s stories.
The dialogue was fun throughout the book, and I enjoyed Becky’s writing style.
I wasn’t a huge fan of the “instant love attraction” thingy going on in this story. I personally didn’t feel a crazy chemistry between Nora and John, but again that was my personal opinion.
It was fast paced and the pages flew by! I rated this a 4/5 star! If someone wants a light, cont ...more
Nora Bradford is a historian. A researcher. Someone who enjoys all things past. But her own past, particularly her romantic past, has left her slightly jaded, more than happy to remain safely single, and determined to rely on no one but herself for success. John Lawson knows what it's ...more
Former Navy SEAL John Lawson plays the play of a dragon slayer perfectly, at least Nora Bradford thinks so; after all, a chance meeting in a simulated rescue mission proved that. In her wildest imagination, Nora would never have paired a bookish genealogist, who owns an entire historical village with a man who is an highly acclaimed national hero. Impossible! So imagine Nora's surprise when she receives a follow-up call from John, indicating that he would like ...more
Nora and John just clicked, to put it in Nora’s words. They seemed like an unusual pairing for the first two seconds but then they seemed completely right together. I also liked Nora’s siste ...more
