Title: Undeniably Yours
Author: Becky Wade
Publisher: Bethany House
Meg Cole can’t take it anymore! She is under so much stress trying to learn her family’s oil business after her father’s death three months ago that she is having recurrent panic attacks. To deal with these attacks she tries breathing techniques, Sudoku puzzles and calling on God to come to her. She soon notices that she feels very calm being near Bo Porter, her father’s horse farm manager. She has a light bulb moment and realizes God is working through His Spirit, using Bo to calm her. But Meg is his boss so how can she keep her anxiety at bay through being with him and have him not get the wrong idea that she is interested in him, even though she really is smitten with him?
Bo has only known Meg for a short period of time, a matter of hours actually, and he chooses to be her ally and protector because he sees through the chic businesswoman to the vulnerable woman beneath. He knows they can only have a professional relationship, right? His head listens, but his heart is having trouble processing that. Besides, in six months, Meg is closing the horse farm on the advice of her financial managers and he will be out of a job and out of her life.
There is a very funny scene when Meg and Bo volunteer to babysit an 18-month-old for an afternoon and evening. I laughed out loud at this one! Some bargaining goes on that day and Meg agrees to two riding lessons with Bo. Her father tried to teach her when she was a little girl and the first lesson she fell off the horse. She hasn’t liked horses since. Will she keep her end of the bargain and go through with the riding lessons? The more time they spend together the more they care for one another. Will either of them be willing to cross the employer/employee boundary? Does Bo really care for her or is he manipulating her in order to change her mind about closing the horse farm?
There are other facets to the story, so I’ll let the reader find out what else happens. This is an easy, relaxing read that flows well. The pages turn quickly and the chapters are not too long. This will be a great summer romance to read while sitting by the pool. It was neat to see someone with such a sensitive and tender heart who had been used so treacherously in the past, trust in God and overcome her some of her biggest fears. God truly wants us to trust Him in all things.
My rating is 4 stars.
