Deeply scarred from a day he wishes he could forget during his military service, Thoroughbred trainer Jake Porter has given up on love. He struggles against symptoms of PTSD, lives a solitary life, and avoids relationships.

When Lyndie James, Jake's childhood best friend, returns to their hometown of 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 trusts her with his prized racehorse, Silver Leaf, then battles his hopes for his horse against his increasing fear for Lyndie's safety.

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. Will Jake ever be able to love Lyndie like she deserves, or is his heart too shattered to mend?

I honestly love this series.  I'm always anxiously awaiting the next book and the chance to read and review it.  This is one of my favorite Christian Fiction series.

Jake is a tough nut to crack.  Because of the horrific events surrounding his military service, Jake suffers from PTSD.  In order to keep it all together, he has hardened himself and built walls of protection.  It's how he copes.  But, Lyndie has loved Jake forever and she is determined to find a way in and make Jake love her again.

I love Lyndie.  She is determined but always gentle and loving.  She tries to understand and she wants to help.  Not pity, but compassion and empathy.  I think people who have grown up with a special needs sibling in their home have a special knack for understanding and loving people better.  That natural instinct for compassion and patience is so attractive.  This is what Lyndie brings to the relationship.

The slow progression for Jake is so satisfying to read.  I loved the flow of the book and I loved learning in bits about both Jake and Lyndie.  This is one of those "feel good" books leave you so content in the end.  It's a great addition to this Porter Family series.  I loved it!

Content:  Clean- some kissing.  Flashback to a violent military accident.  

During her childhood in California, Becky Wade frequently produced homemade plays starring her sisters, friends, and cousins. These plays almost always featured a heroine, a prince, and a love story with a happy ending. She's been a fan of all things romantic ever since.

Becky and her husband lived overseas in the Caribbean and Australia before settling in Dallas, Texas. It was during her years abroad that Becky's passion for reading turned into a passion for writing. She published three historical romances for the general market, put her career on hold for many years to care for her kids, and eventually returned to writing sheerly for the love of it. She’s delighted to be penning warm, wry, and heartwarming contemporary romances for the Christian market. She's the Carol Award and Inspirational Reader's Choice Award winning author of My Stubborn Heart, Undeniably Yours, and Meant to Be Mine.

These days Becky can be found failing but trying to keep up with her housework, sweating at the gym, carting her kids around town, playing tennis, hunched over her computer, eating chocolate, or collapsed on the sofa watching TV with her husband.
