Falling for You
(A Bradford Sisters Romance #2)
By Becky Wade
Inspirational Contemporary Romance
Paperback & ebook, 368 pages
May 1st 2018 by Bethany House Publishers

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.

My Review

This story made me literally laugh out loud at times, but other moments it had me thinking serious, deep thoughts about God, His love for us, grace, and forgiveness. I loved the balance this book found between humor and serious. It also included a wonderful love story - probably my favorite type - the “reunion romance.”

I loved Corbin and Willow’s story. It held so many truths about both relationships with the opposite sex but also with God. These two can carry on some serious banter back and forth. I loved so much of their dialogue and couldn’t wait to read their comebacks. And Corbin was quite fun as he found ways to get under Willow’s skin throughout the book.

Throughout the book the girls kind of downplay football. I’m not like those girls. I LOVE football. So it wasn’t hard for me to fall for Corbin either. And I found his story quite understandable while not on a personal level but as someone I grew up with suffered an almost career ending injury just this past football season and is still waiting for a team as a free agent. I could really feel for Corbin in his situation. I also know how painful and long physical therapy can be and could relate to him in that area too.

I really liked Willow too. She had a lot of internal things she was dealing with too. She was letting the past keep her in the grasp of guilt and it was holding her back. The spiritual growth Willow shows in this book was really encouraging. I love it when a book calls me closer to God and reminds me that He loves, forgives, and accepts us. I also loved her commitment to family in this book and especially her relationship with her sisters.

Honestly though, Charlotte just about stole the show. I loved this little girl’s spunk. I first knew I loved her when she was bossing Corbin around during his physical therapy. But as I got to know her I found I really loved her diligence and drive in all areas of life. She wasn’t afraid of anything and was a little strong willed and I loved it. I really loved the secret she brought to life and watching the mystery unfold in the book.

Last but not least, I loved the romance in this book. It was so realistic and true to life. This book easily can be classified as a kissing book because it is full of amazing kisses. Corbin is quite the romantic and the two of them together definitely do not lack passion. I loved watching them fall in love.

I received an advanced copy of this book from the publisher through NetGalley. This is my honest review.
