A Love Like Ours by Becky Wade

Book Description

Former Marine Jake Porter has far deeper scars than the one that marks his face. He struggles with symptoms of PTSD, lives a solitary life, and avoids relationships.

When Lyndie James, Jake's childhood best friend, lands back in Holley, Texas, Jake cautiously hires her to exercise his Thoroughbreds. Lyndie is tender-hearted, fiercely determined, and afraid of nothing, just like she was as a child. Jake pairs her with Silver Leaf, a horse full of promise but lacking in results, hoping she can solve the mystery of the stallion's reluctance to run.

Though Jake and Lyndie have grown into very different adults, the bond that existed during their childhood still ties them together. Against Jake's will, Lyndie's sparkling, optimistic personality begins to tear down the walls he's built around his heart. A glimmer of the hope he'd thought he'd lost returns, but fears and regrets still plague him. Will Jake ever be able to love Lyndie like she deserves, or is his heart too shattered to mend?

My Review

"Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance” 1 Corinthians 3:7 NLT
      This is a love like ours.

This is the third book in Becky Wade’s Porter family series. Focusing on the last of the porter brothers, Jake. As a former Marine Jake suffers from the traumatic events that sent him home six years ago.
When we’re in pain it’s easier to shift blame onto something or someone else, even ourselves. Why do we struggle so much with this? Why must there be someone to blame for our troubles?

Now on to our next character Lyndie. A light-haired young woman, and Jake’s childhood friend, this sweet natured woman carries her own set of worries. With a younger sister completely dependent on her family to just get through the day.
The relationship between Lyndie and Jake is a strained one, and it was interesting to watch them grow in their friendship, even when Mr. Tall, dark, and brooding, did everything in his power to push Lyndie away.

So many subjects were broached in A Love like Ours from single parenting to being single, and weathering the storms life throws our way. Characters from Becky Wade’s previous two books, Undeniably Yours and Meant to Be Mine, make an appearance in the third book, along with a hint for perhaps a fourth book. A Love like Ours picks up where its predecessor lagged behind. It can also be read out of order without leaving the reader feeling like they have missed something really important

All the way around the book came out to be much better then what was first expected of it. And if you are looking for another good Texas romance with plenty of humor, horses, and real life struggles, then I recommend this book

I received this book for free from the publisher’s in exchange for this honest and unbiased review as part of Bethany House Review program.
