Book Review: Falling For You

From The Back:

Famously beautiful model Willow Bradford is reveling in the peace and quiet of her hometown right up until the moment she comes face-to-face with her ex-boyfriend, Corbin Stewart.

Former NFL quarterback Corbin is forceful, charming, and accustomed to getting what he wants . . . except where Willow is concerned. He's never been able to forget her, but Willow makes it crystal clear she's unwilling to risk her heart again.

When a decades-old mystery in Corbin's family brings them together, will the heartbreak in their past and the complications in their present keep them from falling for one another all over again?

My Reflections:
I fell for the cover of Becky Wade's newest book first. I must admit I didn't even read the back before I ordered it. I saw "Becky Wade" and the gorgeous cover and that sold me! Besides the fact that I read "True to You" in this same series and had to find out what happened to Willow one of the Bradford sisters. 
Willow Bradford and Corbin Stewart are thrown back together again to try to solve an old mystery, their past, however, puts them at odds from the get-go. 
I found that I didn't bond with the main characters Wilow and Corbin right off. Willow is a Model and used to the finer things in life, she just seemed a little flaky at first. Corbin a former NFL quarterback was also not the type of character I would normally jell with. However, this changed for me once I really delved into the storyline, I got over it and they both won me over by the end of the novel. 
The story is savoury read, centred on redemption with a romantic flair, add a little mystery and you have a splendid summer escape! 
One word of caution, however. This book is definitely PG 13. I will not be sharing it with my 16-year-old. It contains some suggestive romantic descriptions and immoral character choices. I read all types of books, mostly Christian, and I found this one to be crossing my comfort zones in the Christian romance category. Just a heads up for the discerning reader.
All that aside Wade's writing was a pleasure to read, her stories shine off the pages, she has a real talent for weaving in relevant life struggles, with well planned out sigh-worthy endings. I look forward to the next book in this series where we learn more about the other Bradford sister Brit.
