 My Review

Stay With Me by Becky Wade is another heart pounding,powerful, sweet romance that will capture your attention. This is the first novel in the new Misty River series.

Popular Bible study author and motivational speaker Genevieve Woodward finds herself in a stranger's guest house. When Aussie Sam Turner finds her, he wants her out! But Gen finds a way to persuade him to let her rent the cottage, and even with all his walls up, Sam finds his heart melting. 

Becky Wade has written a beautiful story about two troubled people, who find themselves in life's situations as they face the struggles of pain and loneliness. There is so much going on in this story that captures your heart and attention. This story tackles some serious issues. Gen is haunted by flashbacks about being one of the Miracle Five, five teenagers who were trapped by an earthquake and were the only survivors. Always wanting to appear "perfect" she hides her battle with addiction.

Sam's feelings of guilt and regret comes from his worst failure and surviving life in isolation is all wants. But when he learns Gen's secret he cannot abandon her. He only wants Gen to follow his rules. No more pills, get counseling, and don't fall in love with him. Sam is a great hero.

This story is one of hope, love, redemption and forgiveness, with a hint of a mystery. Ms Wades ability to use words to magnify the depth of feelings surrounding the struggles of addictions gives place to the very real problems many face today. And the relationship between Sam and Gen blossoms and blooms as their struggles draws them together.

Becky Wades books have always captured me, as she has a way of bringing her characters to life in such moving ways, flaws and all. Her characters are well crafted, honest about failures and find value in forgiveness and second chances. To say I loved this book would be an understatement. Good clean contemporary romance.

Definitely a 5+ rating.

A special thanks to the author/Prism Book Tours for a copy of this book. All views expressed are my honest opinion.
