Falling for You by Becky Wade

Model Willow Bradford has traveled internationally, gained wealth, purchased a home in LA, and dated famous men. But for now, she's taking a reprieve from public life and managing her family's bed and breakfast inn. Corbin Stewart, Willow's ex-boyfriend and a former NFL star, abruptly disturbs her peaceful respite when he arrives with his preteen niece and her unusual request for help. Determined to maintain distance from Corbin and cognizant that she has none of the skills needed to help, Willow graciously refuses. Yet, shortly after her initial refusal, she finds herself agreeing to help! Can Willow and Corbin maintain distance while they work together? Will they finally lay the past to rest and find peace? Read more in Falling for You by Becky Wade.

Falling for You is the second full-length novel in Becky Wade's Bradford Sisters Romance Series. It works fine as a stand-alone if you have not read the prequel, Then Came You, and the first novel, True to You.

Falling for You opens with a decades-old mystery and heavy tension between Willow and Corbin. This captivated my attention immediately and I stayed interested throughout the story. The tension, witty banter, and underlying passion was spot on for Willow and Corbin. I enjoyed watching the characters develop and mature, paralleling the development in their complicated relationship.

Between the mystery and the romance, the plot moved steadily, never dragging, constantly drawing me back even though I had to read it over several days. Falling for You felt like a fairly light read, but it had some tense, difficult, and heavy moments. Becky Wade also added in a strong Gospel message as well as promotion of core Christian principles (which I won't name because I don't want to get to close to giving spoilers).

I recommend Falling for You by Becky Wade to all fans of Christian romance. If you like other Becky Wade books, you will probably like this one as well. I'm already excited for the next book!
