My Stubborn Heart by Becky Wade

• Bethany House Publishers; Original edition (May 1, 2012)
Becky Wade

This book was an interesting read. As it began I kinda liked it but then there were a few rather corny moments that almost turned me off. Thankfully these scenes were followed by really funny ones that kept me reading. I felt that it got better the more I read and I ended up really liking the book. The author did an amazing job of making you feel the emotions of the characters, and I think that's what really made the story good. The things I least liked (besides the corny moments) was 1) all the reference to hotness. The hero of the story was constantly being referred to as a "hottie" and some variation of the phase "has the hots for" was used WAY too much. 2) There was a swear word used twice which I really didn't appreciate, this is a CHRISTIAN novel after all! But other than that I found this to be a really enjoyable story that I quickly finished.


Becky Wade is a graduate of Baylor University. As a newlywed, she lived for three years in a home overlooking the turquoise waters of the Caribbean, as well as in Australia, before returning to the States. A mom of three young children, Becky and her family now live in Dallas, Texas.


A Sensational CBA Debut in Contemporary Romance!

This summer author Becky Wade makes her CBA debut with a fun -- and funny -- contemporary romance. Amidst the light-hearted banter and laugh-out-loud moments is a compelling spiritual journey of one woman's choice to listen to God and wait on him.  Filled with humor and authentic romance, My Stubborn Heart is shaping up to be the hit of the summer.

Kate Donovan is burned out on work, worn down by her dating relationships, and in need of an adventure. When Kate's grandmother asks Kate to accompany her to Redbud, Pennsylvania, to restore the grand old house she grew up in, Kate jumps at the chance.

Yet, she discovers a different kind of project upon meeting the man hired to renovate the house. ;Matt Jarreau is attractive and clearly wounded -- hiding from people, from God, and from his past.  Kate can't help but set her stubborn heart on bringing him out of the dark and back into the light... whether he likes it or not.
