I don't read very many contemporary romances, as I prefer Amish titles or anything set in the 1800s, but I instantly agreed to review Meant to Be Mine through Litfuse Publicity. Why? Well, I remember the author's name, as I had read My Stubborn Heart awhile back and I liked the book.

Meant to Be Mine starts out like a cheesy made-for-LIFETIME movie with Celia Park eloping with the handsome, Ty Porter, in Las Vegas. Everything seemed perfect - until she wakes up the next day and she realizes she had made a horrible mistake. Neither of them are ready for marriage and they both quickly go their separate ways. Celia is in for a surprise when she later learns that she is carrying Ty's child.

The book jumps five and half years, where Celia put all her dreams aside to become a single mother to her daughter. Life isn't perfect as she once thought it would be, but she is doing her best. Then out of nowhere she runs into Ty Porter, who is now a famous bull rider and she must confess to him about their child. Despite everything that has happened, there still is a spark between the two.

Unlike My Stubborn Heart, I struggled to finish reading Meant to Be Mine, as it was a little on the boring side for my taste. The book is published under Christian fiction, but there wasn't anything Christian related; thanks to prescription medications for non-medical reasons, drinking, gambling and adultery. The author spent way too much time describing how 'good looking' Ty Porter is, instead of focusing on love and faith. The book is too long, running about 400 pages and I found myself just skimming over the chapters, as nothing much occurred. Don't get me wrong, the author has a wonderful prose, but there wasn't much character development and the plot just wasn't interesting. I do wish Becky Wade luck on her next novel.
