I’ve read several awesome books last month, and can’t wait to tell you all about them. Today, we’ll start with Falling for You by Becky Wade. It’s a Christian romance, and sometimes those aren’t my favorite, but this author did the genre justice. The characters were phenomenal and I gobbled this book up in almost one setting. Yummy!!!
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 is my first read by Becky Wade. It’s a Christian romance, so if that’s not your thing, don’t read it. I usually find most Christian romances a little stilted and preachy, but this one was done well. The author didn’t come off preachy, and the characters and plot pulled me along. I read it in just over a day.
The characters in this one—Willow (a supermodel) and Corbin Stewart (an injury retired NFL football player)—are both some of my favorites ever. Willow is so sweet, but tortured by demons no one else knows about. And she must learn to forgive herself for mistakes in the past, regarding Corbin. Corbin is cocky, full of himself, yet spiraling into darkness when the book begins. He dated Willow years ago, and he’s never gotten over her. When his niece, Charlotte, begs him to do her a favor and get Willow to meet her so she can discuss a family secret she’s just discovered, it throws them back together again in a crazy hunt to dig up a missing person from the past.
I didn’t describe it well, but the author did an excellent job of making this story flow well, almost seamlessly, so that I became one with the characters and was in the book with them. I loved-loved all the heart-tugging of this second chance romance about forgiveness. I highly recommend it, and think I’ll read another of this author’s books in the future. If you get a chance, you should, too.
