A Vegas Wedding to Boot

Meant to Be Mine

Becky Wade

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? 


     Another contemporary romance, Meant to Be Mine is ahead of the middle of the road. With rodeos, rushed weddings, and a land feud, it covers all the classic western adventures and pitfalls with a modern twist. 

     The focus of the book was Ty and Celia's relationship and reunion. With Addie to look out for, several more conflicts are developed. This book had multiple surprises and detours that I absolutely did not see coming, but in fact enjoyed quite thoroughly. I reread the book to try and see if I had just missed all of the signs because I was just consuming it far too quickly , and I did! The subtleties in this book were so intricate and so well woven into the larger picture that they were only obvious upon a reread. I would definitely  recommend rereading the book about a fortnight (or one book later) after finishing it to revel in the mysteries. 

     It is truly a light fluffy read, perfect for Summer. I also enjoyed the description of the setting. Celia lives in one of these doll house Victorians that I could just picture. It brought to mind a Chicago suburb that my Mom used to drive my sister and I through. So cute! 

    On a side note, Becky Wade has some really cool information about the models on the cover. I loved the idea of getting to know the models. It is truly worth looking at.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher, Bethany House, in exchange for my honest review. Enjoy reading!
