Falling for You
By Becky Wade
Contemporary Christian Romance
Famously beautiful model Willow Bradford is taking a temporary break from her hectic schedule to work as the innkeeper at her family’s small-town bed-and-breakfast. She was enjoying the peace of her hometown, Merryweather, Washington, right up until she came face-to-face with Corbin Stewart, the man she loves to hate. A thoughtful rule-follower by nature, Willow threw caution to the wind four years ago when she entrusted her heart to Corbin–and suffered the consequences when it all fell apart.
Former NFL quarterback Corbin is forceful, charming, and accustomed to getting what he wants . . . except where Willow Bradford is concerned. Unable to forget her, he’s never stopped regretting what happened between them. When their paths unexpectedly cross again, he’s determined to make her give him a second chance.
When a decades-old missing persons case finds Corbin and Willow working together, they’re forced to confront their past and who they’ve become–and whether they can risk falling for one another all over again.
This story was delightfully romantic and tense, while also spiritual and thought provoking. This was the 2nd book I read this year (yes I am SORELY behind in book reviews, I realize this…)
I really did not know what to expect while diving into this story. I really enjoy Becky Wade’s stories, so I thought I”d pick it up – mostly in great anticipation of the third one in the series that is now out. I did not expect there to arise such deep and spiritual issues, like self-worth and perfectionism, and control. All of which both characters struggled with. I enjoyed the recurring roles from the previous characters, and future characters that are now the center of the third book. It gave the story more layers, as if the world revolved around more than just two people,, which it does in real life.
Speaking of main characters Willow and Corbin – I did NOT like Willow from the first book in the series. I didn’t want to like her in this story either; however, the more I learned about her life, the more secrets that unfolded, and the more I learned about her personality, the more I began to actually like her after all.
If you like tension, love-hate relationships, and romantic antics, you’ll love this one. As is everything Becky Wade writes, this book is fabulously written.
