LET IT BE ME by Becky Wade, Reviewed by Nicole Cook #BlogTour #Giveaway #Bonus

 Welcome to Nicole Cook's stop on the Let It Be Me "Mathematician" blog tour - make sure you scroll through for all the great bonuses!
Nicole's Review:
"Everything in him was demanding that he tear down heaven and earth to make Leah his."

Let It Be Me, the second installment in award-winning author Becky Wade’s Misty River Romance series, is guaranteed to be a hit with fans of contemporary romance. With a fabulous cast of characters, Becky Wade immediately draws readers in and keeps them interested until the very last page.

The author is a master at creating witty banter between the hero and heroine, and she continues to shine throughout this novel. With two best friends realizing they are interested in the same girl and an intriguing ancestry angle, readers will not want to miss this incredible story.

Becky Wade shares the beautiful message of God’s unconditional love and grace for us. Let It Be Me is highly recommended for readers of contemporary romance, especially those who enjoy books by authors such as Courtney Walsh, Denise Hunter and Susan May Warren.

Now the anticipation is extremely high for book #3, in which Luke Dempsey finally gets his own story. He first captured my attention during his brief mentions in book #1, and I absolutely cannot wait for his story next year!
"Despite his many sins and failures, Luke was a man of his word. He'd returned to his hometown to fulfill the promise he'd made to his friend and fellow inmate, Ed Sutherland."

*I received a complimentary copy of this book from Bethany House and was not required to write a positive review. All opinions expressed are mine.

"She'd spent a lifetime trusting in the answers math provided. The world was not always logical. But math was. And she loved math for that."
The one woman he wants is the one he cannot have.

Former foster kid Sebastian Grant has leveraged his intelligence and hard work to become a pediatric heart surgeon. But not even his career success can erase the void he's tried so hard to fill. Then he meets high school teacher Leah Montgomery and his fast-spinning world comes to a sudden stop. He falls hard, only to make a devastating discovery--Leah is the woman his best friend set his heart on months before.

Leah's a math prodigy who's only ever had one big dream--to earn her PhD. Raising her little brother put that dream on hold. Now that her brother will soon be college bound, she's not going to let anything stand in her way. Especially romance . . . which is far less dependable than algebra.

When Leah receives surprising results from the DNA test she submitted to a genealogy site, she solicits Sebastian's help. Together, they comb through hospital records to uncover the secrets of her history. The more powerfully they're drawn to each other, the more strongly Sebastian must resist, and the more Leah must admit that some things in life--like love--can't be explained with numbers.
