The Story:
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?

My Thoughts:
I've been on a reading kick lately thanks to having read a bunch of fabulous stories in the Christian fiction genre. Becky Wade's contemporary romances have always been a pleasure to read and while not my absolute favorite, A Love Like Ours was worth the late night! The complexity of each character and the raw emotion that emanates from the page kept me up well into the night. I prefer my stories to be a little less overt when it comes to the evangelizing, but this still made for a good addition to the Porter Family series. It hits pretty heavily on the topic of PTSD which is always so interesting to read about since it is so prevalent in society today and there isn't a set treatment or cure. The romance itself was sweet. Childhood sweetheart and romances that grow between old friends are some of my favorites to read and A Love Like Ours does not disappoint on that front. I really liked this quick read in spite of feeling a little preached at. If you like stories with heavy Christian themes, this should not disappoint you!
