Book Summary:

Ty Porter has always been irresistible to Celia Park. All through high school–irresistible. When their paths cross again after college–stillirresistible. 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?

Cheryls review

This was a truly amazing read. I can’t wait to read more by Becky Wade. This was on my to read list for so long because other deadlines just kept jumping in the way. Now I wish I had read it sooner! Wade does a fabulous job of writing an engaging story with characters that I love. They are very human and make human mistakes. They learn and grow together. They have to accept that we are all imperfect and that is okay. A beautiful story. I can’t wait to read more of this series.

  1. The cover for this is adorable. I’m not 100% sure I will read this because I’m always a little iffy with the whole “child you didn’t know he had” thing. But I’m so glad you loved it.
