Meant to Be Mine Becky Wade
Book info and Review
About the book: 

Ty Porter has always been irresistible to Celia Park. All through high school---irresistible. When their paths cross again after college---still irresistible. This time, though, Ty seems to feel exactly the same way about Celia. Their whirlwind romance deposits them at a street-corner Las Vegas wedding chapel.

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?

My thoughts: MEANT TO BE MINE is Ms Wade's third book. I've read her first one, didn’t care for it, skipped her second one, and hearing good things about her, decided to try this one. I do LOVE contemporary romance. My very favorite genre to read.

          Okay, before we go any further, a review is my opinion only. I got disturbing messages concerning my review of her first book because I commented about drinking and gambling. I was told "It is real life!" Yes, and so are a lot of other things. Doesn't mean I enjoy it. I am a conservative Christian. Not exactly a member of the KJV, dresses only crowd, but close. I understand this is real life, But it's not what I enjoy reading about. So, call me a prude.

          Celia did marry Ty before they had sex but it was still very much a one-night stand. He was drunk. She was stupid. And they decided to marry because she rolled a seven on the gaming table. Seriously. Yeah, that's a recipe for a lasting marriage.

My opinion of the story line aside, Ms. Wade is a very talented writer. She has a way with words. She is an engaging writer and draws the reader in. If you aren’t put off by certain issues, then you will probably absolutely LOVE Ms. Wade's story. 

The ending of the book is worth it. I want to say more but can't without spoilers, but the ending is worth it.  No one is perfect. People need the Lord. And both Celia and Ty are very flawed people in need of a savior. As am I. And everyone.
