Meant to Be Mine...

Meant to be Mine (A Porter Family Novel, #2)

If you know a reader who appreciate chemistry and character development, points them towards Meant to Be Mine! 

Predicated upon a Las Vegas marriage and a next-day abandonment, this is a "Do I give you another chance?" story. 

In one part of her heart, Celia is content to never see Ty Porter again whether he's her legal husband or not. Obviously, the wedding meant nothing to him. The only thing that marriage-measured-in-hours did for her was break her heart, and give her a child. That's right, she should say their child.
Not that Ty cares about his daughter Addie either... until he reappears in Celia's life and begins acting like he does.

And that's when the comedy, drama, and fireworks begin! :) Who knew that a smallish Texas town could handle such a situation? 

Becky Wade did a great job making me react to her character's stories. I was like "No, Celia. Do not believe him. He's already proven himself. He's never clarified his intentions toward you, or to this Other Woman." And with him I was like "No fast moves here, you immature, irresponsible creature." 
But then... then Ty started trying to be different, and trying their be there for Celia and Addie. And I thought, "Well, if he could become what they need, then this could still be a good thing." 

I haven't read any other Becky Wade books, but I can say that this one is a strong story of transformation. I also thought that Ty's bad behavior and Celia's reactions were portrayed accurately... he was totally unlikeable and she was rightfully angry, and then you could feel his remorse and see her heart changing towards him. 

Thank you Litfuse for my review copy!

Becky WadeDuring 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.
