My heart was pounding as I laid my head back, closed my eyes and sighed. The swoon worthy effects of reading the last page of Meant to Be Mine. Becky Wade has created the Couple of the Year with Ty and Celia- perhaps even the couple of the decade. All I could think was THAT is a love story! And you know what? I'm going to read Meant to Be Mine again- soon. Friends- I never reread books- ever. Who has time for that? Well. This time I'm making an exception. Meant to Be Mine is that romantic, clever, funny (the dialogue is masterful!), heartbreaking, and downright delicious. Yes, a book can be delicious! It was like Red Vines and hot buttered popcorn. I couldn't get enough of it!
Oh yes, Meant to Be Mine is my new favorite book.
The story begins with a wedding in Vegas. It's not planned. Sweet Celia has carried a torch for Ty for 14 long years. She is utterly in love with him- and he asks her to marry him. Wonderful! Right? Well... The very next morning he tells her that he loves someone else. Yes, he does! There are no words. Celia tells Ty that she will never forgive him. And the years go by...
6 years later Ty decides to look Celia up. Just to see how she's doing. She's got quite the surprise for him! I want to sit you down and tell you more but that would be unkind. You need to read the book yourself! I'll just tell you this. The sizzle between Ty and Celia is palpable. (Christian women like passion, too!) They challenge each other and it was a pleasure to watch them spar with their words! Becky Wade also delivers amazing supporting characters in her books. That's one of the many reasons I love her writing. Uncle Danny, precious Addie (you'll have to read to see who she is. ;) ), Bo, Meg, Donetta and more all round out this love story in the most beautiful way. I would love, love, LOVE to see Made to Be Mine created into a movie. Through Becky Wade's words I could almost see Celia and Ty. Their story needs to be on the big screen. I'd be first in line to see it, although we know the book is always better. :)
About the book:
Ty Porter has always been irresistible to Celia Park. All through high school---irresistible. When their paths cross again after college---still irresistible. This time, though, Ty seems to feel exactly the same way about Celia. Their whirlwind romance deposits them at a street-corner Las Vegas wedding chapel.
The next morning they wake to a marriage certificate and a dose of cold reality. Celia's ready to be Ty's wife, but Ty's not ready to be her husband. He's a professional bull rider, he lives on the road, and he's long planned to settle down with the hometown girl he's known since childhood.
Five and a half years pass. Celia's buried her dreams so that she can afford to raise her daughter. Ty's achieved all of his goals. Or thought he had, until he looks again into the eyes of the woman he couldn't forget and into the face of the child he never knew he had.
How much will Ty sacrifice to win back Celia's trust and prove to her that their spontaneous marriage can still become the love of a lifetime?
