Bookshelf Friday - Falling For You by Becky Wade

Oooh! Another Becky Wade novel released in May. I cannot tell a lie, she is one of my FAVORITE authors, so I was super excited to have this one in my hands. And had life been a little slower this spring, I would have already put the review up, but better late than never because, friends, this is a book you'll want to grab if you haven't already! Here's a short blurb and then we'll chat on the other side:)

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.

Wade does it again with this contemporary romance. In fact, I think she just keeps getting better. I've noticed a shift in her writing from character driven to plot driven, and it's only added depth to her writing which I already loved. The story Corbin and Willow are chasing down keeps readers hooked, as does the the chemistry between them. Wade is masterful at moving from moments brimming with depth and seriousness, to ones of easy banter that has you smiling and laughing right along with the characters in the book. I enjoy the sense of humor Wade continues to show on the page. Through it all she weaves the beautiful truth of God in ways that all readers can relate to. She's never heavy-handed with her faith, but neither does she shy away from it, and that lends authenticity to her characters as well. Faith is often seen best in the simple living of our lives rather than in preaching it loudly, and Wade demonstrates this with a deft hand. Truly another amazing book by Becky Wade.

I happily give Falling For You 5 out of 5 stars and you can purchase it here.
