Meant to Be Mine
In Meant to Be Mine, Becky Wade tells the story of Celia and Ty, a couple that was meant to be even if they took some huge detours along the way. Though Celia was infatuated with Ty all through high school nothing ever came of it, not until they randomly ran into each other in Las Vegas and ended up getting married. Shortly after their marriage they realized they’d made a huge mistake and went their separate ways, both were keeping secrets from each other and Celia keeping Ty’s last name. Five years later, they run into each other again and the truth begins to unravel. What they learn about the past has the power to bring them together again or forever keep apart…or does it?
I love a good love story, especially if it’s set in Texas and involves cowboys…haha. Meant to Be Mine delivers on both counts. Celia and Ty’s story was interesting and relatable, Wade tackled the issues you’d actually expect a couple in their situation to be facing. I also really liked the way that religion was woven into the story without it feeling like it was written in just to make sure it was there. It wasn’t right up in your face the whole time, but it didn’t feel contrived either. I’ve read other novels by Becky Wade and enjoyed them as well, she has a style of writing that tells a great story while keeping it fun, entertaining and easy to read. This would be a great book to pick up if you’re looking for something to read by the pool this summer. 🙂
