Falling for You

Famously beautiful model Willow Bradford is taking a temporary break from her hectic Falling-for-Youschedule 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 — then 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 a decades-old missing persons case brings Corbin and Willow 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.

My Review:

This is the second installment of Becky Wade’s A Bradford Sisters Romance. I liked the first book very much, so I had really high hopes for this one. It was good but not as good as True to You. My sister, who has read all of Wade’s books, told me that this was a more typical type of story that Wade writes. This book follows Willow and Corbin. Willow is Nora’s sister (Nora is the main character from True to You). This book is filled with a little more drama, compared to the first book, because Corbin and Willow have a history together, but you don’t find out until quite far in the book. My favorite quote in the book was this, “Her sisters were inextricably linked to her. Their histories were intertwined more tightly than any braid.” Like the main character, I have sisters (three of them) and we are really close, so I like seeing that in books. Sisters always (well most of the time) understand each other.

I did not mind this book but I personally did not feel like I got attached to the main characters. For any of Wade’s fans I think you will enjoy this brand new book. Those who enjoyed her first book in this series, I think might like it. To those who are intrigued with this book, I recommend that you read the first book before this one.

I am looking forward to reading the next book in this series. I am hoping there will be a certain wedding, Hint, Hint, Nora and John’s wedding.

Before, I end this review I have to say that whoever did the covers of the two books in this series did an excellent job. I am looking forward to seeing what they come up with for the next book.

True to You

After a devastating heartbreak three years ago, genealogist and historical village owner Nora Bradford decided that burying her nose in her work and her books is far safer than romance in the here and now. 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 condition, he’s forced to dig into the secrets of his ancestry. John enlists Nora’s help to uncover the identity of his birth mother, and as they work side-by-side, this pair of opposites begins to suspect that they just might be a perfect match.  But can their hope for a future survive their wounds from the past?

True to You

So, the saying “Don’t judge a book by its cover” is something I do not follow. As soon has this book cover and the back of the book was released, I put this on my to read list. This is my first Becky Wade book that I have tried and I liked it. The main female lead Nora was very well written. Wade made her so realistic—to me at least. When I was reading this book, I kept thinking “I am just like her, except I do not have a handsome Navy SEAL.” I loved this quote: “She was bookish! She had no experience with holding eye contact with Navy SEALs. All the practice she put in with Mr. Darcy and Rochester and Adolphus didn’t seem to be holding her in good stead.” There were many other quotes in the book that were just as humorous. Within the first few chapters, Wade has her main female lead mention Colin Firth as Mr. Darcy and Richard Armitage has Mr. Thornton. That is when I knew the book was good.

The huge downfall is that there is not another book in this series published yet. I will be reading the next book as soon as it is released.

This book has its good parts, its sad parts, its romantic parts and its ups and downs but it had me reading way into the night. I would highly recommend this book to mature readers since it deals with sensitive issues that happens to each of their mothers. Since this is my first Becky Wade book, I am very pleased with my first impression of her books and am looking forward to seeing what comes out next!

Reading Resolution 55: Read a book that has a cover with your favorite color.

Reason Why: The girl on the cover is in a blue dress and to be honest dresses are my weakness.  So, I am using this book for this resolution because blue is one of my favorite colors (I have many favorite colors) and the girl is in a blue dress.

This review is written in my own words and is my honest opinion.
