A Love Like Ours 
"A Love Like Ours"
Becky Wade

Former Marine Jake Porter has far deeper scars than the one that marks his face. He struggles with symptoms of PTSD, lives a solitary life, and avoids relationships.
When Lyndie James, Jake’s childhood best friend, lands back in 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 pairs her with Silver Leaf, a horse full of promise but lacking in results, hoping she can solve the mystery of the stallion’s reluctance to run.
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, but fears and regrets still plague him. Will Jake ever be able to love Lyndie like she deserves, or is his heart too shattered to mend?

This was my first time reading a Becky Wade novel, but hopefully not my last.  She has an enjoyable writing style that is uniquely her own.  She makes the characters and their stories so real, that you feel that you actually know them and are pained by the trials they're facing and rejoice with the good things.

Lyndie and her family have not had it easy, but they still believe and know that God is good.  I love that!  I love that Becky Wade writes in such a way that her readers can relate to.  Yes, we all have different trials and face a variety of different things, but God is good.  That is something that we all need to remember through the good times and the bad.  

This book is a keeper!  Now I'm going to hunt down the first two and read them!
