What began in Undeniably Yours draws to a swoon-worthy close in this sweet novella that is more “chapter story” than anything else. Without breaking itself into sections, this scene-long story gives us a peek into the lives of two characters we began to root for in A Love Like Ours, Becky last Porter family novel. The story is as simplistically sweet as it is perfect, about single mom Amber and the kind (not to mention good-looking) single father fireman Will, who captures her guarded heart. Having been dating for seven months, Amber and Will have discussed their future, but recently Will hasn’t been as excited about that future leading Amber to doubt what’s next. A flat tire, walk in the rain and Christmas carols are all involved in what comes next – which is, of course perfectly festive.  

Saying more than this really isn’t fair because the length of this is so short (it maxes about 25 pages on Kindle). But suffice to say, anyone who enjoys a bit of holiday reading this time of year, might find this perfectly suited for a quick and delightful 30 minutes of reading. I enjoyed having a look inside two of my favorite supporting characters lives (seriously, this made me want to go back and re-read the book that teased Will and Amber’s would-be romance because I was flooded with memories of how very much I enjoyed their romance) and to cap it off, this was grin-inducing romantic. They may not have their own full-length novel (which always allows for better, fleshed out characters) but these two are fabulous nonetheless. I’ve zero doubt Will is exactly the good, upstanding guy we get the feeling he is and Amber is more complicated than I initially thought (given her past), but makes an equally compelling heroine.  

So, in short, snag a copy of this piece of Christmas charm to complete this most wonderful time of year season – it’d make an ideal read on your drive (provided you're a passenger naturally) to family’s house for Christmas dinner or while sitting in front of the fireplace with a piece of your favorite desert. Either way, The Proposal is Hallmark-esque magic at its best. 

Coming Next from Becky Wade: Gray Fowler, star NFL tight end, is being pursued by a stalker, so his team hires a protection agency to keep Gray under the watch of a bodyguard at all times. When Gray meets Dru Porter, an agent assigned to him, he's indignant. How can an attractive young female half his size possibly protect him?

But Dru's a former Marine, an expert markswoman, and a black belt. She's also ferociously determined to uncover the identity of Gray's stalker. And she's just as determined to avoid any kind of romantic attachment between herself and the rugged football player with the mysterious past. But the closer they get to finding the stalker, the closer they grow to each other. As the danger rises, can Dru and Gray entrust their hearts--and their lives--to one another? - Goodreads, May 2016
