Book Review: Meant to Be Mine by Becky Wade ...4/5
I love this book. I love that the love that began when they were young was picked up when they were mature enough to make it last. Sigh. I just love it when God does that. I am one of those people who put myself completely in the characters shoes. I become immersed. When they are sad, I cry and when they do something funny I laugh. I fully enjoyed being these characters.
Celia Park is a great mom with lots on her plate and she is trying so hard to make it all work out. She thinks she has to do it all and does not trust Ty. Well honestly I wouldn't either.
Ty has been coasting for 5 years. Well he has been making money and becoming successful but his life is sort of stuck in neutral. He has avoided Celia for 5 years and goes to visit her to get closure. But holey mackeral he gets a big opening.
It is a great book.
Back of 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?
