Meant to Be Mine by Becky Wade
The next morning they wake to a marriage certificate and a dose of cold reality. Celia's ready to be Ty's wife, but Ty's not ready to be her husband. He's a professional bull rider, he lives on the road, and he's long planned to settle down with the hometown girl he's known since childhood.
Five and a half years pass. Celia's buried her dreams so that she can afford to raise her daughter. Ty's achieved all of his goals. Or thought he had, until he looks again into the eyes of the woman he couldn't forget and into the face of the child he never knew he had.
How much will Ty sacrifice to win back Celia's trust and prove to her that their spontaneous marriage can still become the love of a lifetime?
Meant to Be Mine by Becky Wade was a sweet novel (the second in the Porter Family series) that underscored the reality of how love can exist even when bad choices and unfortunate situations seek to snuff it out. Despite the poor choices that Ty and Celia made, they both learn important lessons from their mistakes and they become better people as they seek to rectify those mistakes. Both young people have to choose to forgive one another and themselves and to seek God's forgiveness and to trust Him to guide their lives. I really enjoyed seeing how the couple had to learn to work together, to try to trust again, and to make the best of the circumstances that faced them. I was inspired at times when they acted selflessly out of love even when it came at a great cost. Ty and Celia's little daughter was precious, and she did a great deal to help fix the situation. Overall, I found this novel to have a sweet and interesting plot line, enjoyable characters, difficult situations, and a quick read. I would recommend this novel to any reader looking for interesting and genuine romance novel. I received this novel for free from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
