My book of choice to read on a recent trip was Falling for You by Becky Wade. Let me tell you, Mrs. Wade can write! I was swept up in the drama of lost love rekindled, a decades-old mystery unraveled, and the sweet camaraderie of sisters. Wade has a way of delving deep into the character, helping you truly get into these character’s skin. I was captivated.

Famously beautiful model Willow Bradford is taking a temporary break from her hectic schedule to work as the innkeeper at her family’s small-town bed-and-breakfast. She was enjoying the peace of her hometown, Merryweather, Washington, right up until she came face-to-face with Corbin Stewart, the man she loves to hate. A thoughtful rule-follower by nature, Willow threw caution to the wind four years ago when she entrusted her heart to Corbin–and suffered the consequences when it all fell apart.
Former NFL quarterback Corbin is forceful, charming, and accustomed to getting what he wants . . . except where Willow Bradford is concerned. Unable to forget her, he’s never stopped regretting what happened between them. When their paths unexpectedly cross again, he’s determined to make her give him a second chance.
When a decades-old missing persons case finds Corbin and Willow working together, they’re forced to confront their past and who they’ve become–and whether they can risk falling for one another all over again.
I enjoy old loves being rekindled and this one definitely did not disappoint. The depth of feeling between Willow and Corbin is tangible, heavy with the anger of past disappointment and loss, yet ripe with the still-present attraction. I loved the sparks between the two, the snarky dialogue, the witty banter, and the wearing down of walls between them. Their chemistry is undeniable for the very first moment they are thrust together. Just delicious!
One of the things I love about Wade’s writing is the secondary characters and how they help to develop the overall plot and characterization of the hero and heroine. Each character helps Willow grow throughout the book and face herself…her fears, mistakes, her outward self verses her inward self.
There is a beautiful theme of forgiveness in this book – forgiving oneself and forgiving others. Wade beautifully weaves God’s truths into these character’s past hurts and sins, creating a beautiful blanket of hope and renewal and ultimately love. Falling for You is a heart-palpitating romance with unforgettable characters. Willow and Corbin are definitely a yummy couple.
