Book Review: My Stubborn Heart by Wade

Kate Donavon, a sweet social worker, has taken few months off work to help her grandmother complete her dream: restoring the vacant family home. Helping them is the taciturn handyman, Matt Jarreau. Kate is drawn to the pain in his eyes and becomes determined to befriend the widower, whether he likes it or not.

I loved this book. I loved the main character, Kate, and could really relate to her. With many contemporary romances, the hero has to be rich, famous, and handsome. I'm pretty sure that's a publisher's guideline. Because of this, many story lines seem unbelievable and the male characters lack depth. Becky Wade avoided this downside, making Matt deep and compelling, despite the fact he is a handsome, former professional hockey player. Matt struggles with grief and God, and it draws you in.

This was a great escape read, I curled up and polished it off as fast as possible. I definitely recommend it.

I received this book for free from Bethany House in exchange for your unbiased review.
