    1. You know that book you fall in love with and don’t want it to end, each page should NOT bring you closer to the ending and even though you have a dozen other books demanding a review, you keep dragging your feet on finishing this one, because you just don’t want it to end? That is more than just a long run-on sentence; THAT is my unadulterated emotion about “My Stubborn Heart.” I flat. Out. Loved. It. Fitting into this novel was like stepping into a Cinderella fairy tale…and the glass [...]


    2. Becky Wade has once again written a sweet, easy to read romance yet filled with realistic characters fighting the every day battles of life. It's nice to see characters who get angry with God and feel distant from Him when things get rough and they can't understand why. I think we'll all admit we have been in that place at one time or another. I loved Kate's character and her patience, understanding yet strong fortitude in response to Matt. The "seniors" were delightful and the subplot with Mort [...]


    3. 4.80 stars - mild pg13 (some yummy kisses)WooHoo!!!! I finally finished reading!!! (I'm doing a slow motion, exhausted happy dance!! You should see it--it's something special!!!) My health has been horrible lately and it took me 26 blooming days to read this book!!! (Normally it would have taken me maybe two days.) But I LOVED LOVED LOVED every bit of it (even the prologue and I cannot usually stand prologues!)! This was a great romantic and funny story. I loved both the Hero and the heroine, as [...]


    4. Recently, I received the book My Stubborn Heart by Becky Wade It is a 352 page light-hearted contemporary Christian romance novel from Bethany House Publishers.The main female character is Kate Donovan. She is burned out with her job as a social worker following a tragedy and she’s down on her luck in the romance department. he wants to be married and have a family, but in the past has made some bad choices in the men she dates. She comes to Redbud, Pennsylvania with her grandmother to recharg [...]


    5. What a cute story! The love story was sweet and I loved all the humour and wittiness in this book. I always love a good story with scheming, matchmaking seniors and these characters were really funny! The main character Kate was fun and relatable. And Matt Jarreauswoon! That is all. Lol!The main message of trusting God and returning to Him was really touching. Seeing the change in Matt was beautiful as well. I couldn't put this book down and loved it to bits and pieces. 5 stars!


    6. Such a FUN! book!! This is my second Becky Wade, and I am LOVING her writing style. I had a blast reading it, while at the same time identifying with the very real struggles in this book, particularly Kate's. This is a great contemporary romance.That being said, it reads more like a romance novel, with a touch of God thrown in, than what I typically get out of an "inspirational" novel, which, I feel like was Wade's purpose. Because of that, I kept it at 4 stars---part of me wanted to go for 5, t [...]


    7. I recently listened to the audio book version of My Stubborn Heart by Becky Wade while on a road trip. I had heard from quite a few people that if I enjoyed the Porter Family books, then I needed to read this story. So, I ordered this book on Audible.I’m so glad I did! I was really impressed with these two main characters and the way that the story flowed. Kate was stubborn and unyielding in her determination to help Matt get past the pain of losing his wife and hockey career. I was surprised [...]


    8. Still catching up on reviewsems my favorites are the ones falling behind, since I tend to want to say more about them, I guess.I enjoyed every minute of this delightful story between Kate and Matt. I love the description of her–how she's cute but not Barbie-perfect. And how she's kept her heart all these years for just the right man until it falls right in the lap of the man who's restoring her grandmother's home–a man whose heart was broken years ago, and is afraid to love again.The poker n [...]


    9. This book was sooo good!! I seriously enjoy every single book written by Becky Wade, she's my fav! This was such a such a beautiful story that deals with grief and healing. Kate was just so relatable, I loved reading from her point of view. I definitely enjoyed every minute of this story.


    10. It's been a long time since I read a romance novel that left me completely and utterly speechless. No jokeI'm not the target market for romance novels. I was as an impressionable, young, braces-on-my-teeth teenager complete with a dad who thought I shouldn't read so many of them (even if they were Christian). Since then, I'm not so impressionable, but I find that my attention wanders greatly. So, imagine my surprise to find one that I fell in love with from start to finish. I loved Matt's moodin [...]



    11. GENRE: CONTEMPORARY ROMANCEPUBLISHER: BETHANY HOUSEPUBLICATION DATE: MAY 01, 2012RATING: 4.5 OUT OF 5 – EXCELLENT PROS: Quirky, humorous style of writing; relatable heroine; realistic spiritual journeys; great supporting charactersCONS: A few minor details may irritate or alienate certain readersKate Donovan has been praying for her future husband since she was in the fourth grade, but now that she’s thirty-one and still single, she’s starting to wonder whether she should buy a couple of c [...]


    12. I thought this book is a bit on the fence. I don't think Christian morals are the heart and soul of the book. Some of the language is a little too strong for a Christian novel, in my opinion. The words are definitely not PG-13, but I wouldn't say they're words that most Christians use on an every day basis. Also, the plot is a little redundant; there isn't a whole lot of action. The protagonist is confused through the whole novel, and barely prays about her troubles concerning the man she is dat [...]


    13. I really loved the tender romance between Matt and Kate. I adored Kate's perky spirit ( I could just picture her in her ballet flats :)) and I loved watching the heartache thaw in Matt as he came alive around her. Very moving romance.


    14. I don't give many 5 stars. I loved, loved, loved this book from beginning to the end. A sweet, utterly beguiling love story not afraid to examine the hidden depths of pain that sometime accompany us on the way to happily ever after.


    15. On a three month respite from her job as a social worker, Kate Donovan journeys with her grandmother to Redbud, Pennsylvania to fix up an old family property. She's tired of living a single lifestyle, tired of waiting on Mr. Right, and done with dating hot guys. That makes their mysterious, recluse-of-a-contractor off limits, no matter what grandmother and friends, or her stubborn heart may wish. But the aura of tragedy Matt carries, coupled with the awful truth about his past, appeals to her in [...]


    16. Becky Wade is the Queen of Emotion. Normally, I am a fast reader, but she had me slowing down to absorb each and every word on the page. I didn't want it to endeven though parts of it hurt to read. A lot.Heroine: Kate Donovan has prayed for a husband and has now come to the town of Redbud, PA for a break from her childrens' services/social work job, which having worked in a simliar position, I can understand the need for a break. She's there to renovate her grandmother's childhood home. She's sp [...]


    17. I'm going to let you know right up front that I'd definitely list My Stubborn Heart as an "edgy" Christian romance. Kate loves antiques and peppermint taffies and she looks a little like Audrey Hepburn. She's been saving herself for her future husband. At 31, despite the many prayers, she's became a little discouraged that God hasn't sent her the man she's been waiting for. While helping her grandmother over the summer, she meets Matt.Matt is an ex-hockey player. He lost his wife to cancer a few [...]


    18. When I read Her One and Only by Becky Wade, I realized that I hadn’t read Becky Wade’s debut novel, My Stubborn Heart. So, I got the book and read it. I thoroughly enjoyed it. And, now, I have read all of Becky’s books. (Speaking of which, she has another book coming out in May. It is called True to You and it looks very good! I can’t wait to read it!)Anyway, back to My Stubborn Heart, the biggest thing that caught my eye: Matt was a hockey player. That automatically gives this book a go [...]


    19. Wow what a great story. I couldn't put this down. This may be the fastest I've read a book in a while. I loved the faith aspect that was included as well. Highly recommend.


    20. Well, another great Becky Wade contemporary romance! <My Stubborn Heart is another lively romance featuring a heroine who doesn't know how she attracts a larger than life hero, in this case: a world class hockey player.I love Becky Wade voice. Her light but endearing touch. Her ability to charm us with characters such as Velma and Morty and make us believe in them and enjoy them.If you're looking for a fun, sweet, insightful and touching read, THIS SWEET ROMANCE is for YOU!




    21. 4.5 stars.You know that day when you pick of a book and step into the story and then wake up to see that half the day is gone and you spent it, wonderfully, reading? (Love those days!) Well, that was today. Quite enjoyable.This was a very sweet novel. I enjoyed this story a lot. The romance, the action, the faith. It was all very touching. And the story was so sweet! It wasn't very funny to me though. I think Becky Wade is supposed to write romantic comedy but, romantic as it was, it didn't make [...]


    22. This was one of those books I had no doubt I would love from the very beginning. I literally began reading it the moment I received it in the mail. even though I had weeks before I needed to write a review for the blog tour. I'd never heard of Becky Wade before Litfuse offered me the chance to be on the author's blog tour. I'd never heard of the book either, but something about it caught my attention from first sight. Perhaps it was the cover, which was done extremely well. Or perhaps it was bec [...]


    23. Kate Donovan takes a three month leave of absence from her job to go with her grandmother to Redbud, Pennsylvania and restore the grand old house she grew up in years ago. Kate enjoys her grandmother and her friends even though Kate is the only young person in the group. In between the “high teas” and hard work Kate also gets to know the local celebrity, Matt Jarreau, a former hockey player with a tragic past. As they grow to become friends, Kate wonders if there could ever be something more [...]


    24. My Stubborn Heart is a stand-alone novel by Becky Wade, and was the only book I hadn’t yet read by her, so when I had some time to just pick out random books I wanted to read from the library, I immediately went to this one. And, I’m SO glad I did, because this book is absolutely FANTASTIC!!!!!!!!!! I was hooked from the very first page and it was so extremely difficult to put it down because I absolutely had to know what was going to happen! And I have to say, I definitely didn’t see thin [...]


    25. Quick synopsis: Spunky and persistent red-head, Kate Donovan, is determined to befriend (hunky) former-hockey star turned withdrawn loner, Matt Jarreau. Throw in a group of seventy-something matchmaker-wannabes racing against a three-month deadline to bring Kate and Matt together and you've got the makings of a touching read full of real and (somewhat) quirky characters.I LOVED it! Addicted from page one. Author Becky Wade creates in Kate and Matt, characters that are deep, honest and complex. W [...]


    26. Giveaway and Full post here: overweight-bookshelf.This book moved me, thrilled me, and captivated me all from the first few pages of the prologue. Now that it is over, I am bereaved and reluctant to pick up another contemporary novel for a few days in fear that everything will fall short in comparison. I intentionally went back to reread pages because I just wasn't ready for it to be over. Even now, the Kate and Matt are not far from my mind and heart as I continue to contemplate the depth and i [...]


    27. 4 Stars. 16+ for romance, pre-marital kissing, and some slightly adult content.This was a fun, sweet, drive-you-crazy sort of a book. It was deeper than most chick-lit, and the complexity and realness of the characters was wonderful. It was a fast read, although there were a few times I had to stop reading to ponder the intriguing character development or in frustration of come-on-and-get-together-already! The synopsis is great and the book is very true to it, so I will not bother to write my ow [...]
