About the book:
A Love Like Ours (Bethany House, May 2015)
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?

I love Becky's books and I have been enjoying the Porter family series so much and was excited when "A Love Like Ours" released! Jake Porter is the focus of this novel as far as the Porter siblings and he is tall, dark and brooding, but oh so sweet and perfect boyfriend material. Lyndie was best friends with Jake while growing up, but her family moved away, but now the family has returned. Lyndie wants to dive right back into the friendship, but Jake needs convincing and reluctantly agrees to Lyndie working at the ranch. This is only the beginning of the story and I knew I was going to love it and not be able to stop reading once I had started! Jake is struggling with PTSD following his time serving the country which is all too real for so many people. Lyndie's family deals with the fragility of life each and every day with her sister Mollie and yet they have learned that God is good all the time and are at peace in the midst of the trying days. I love the roles that Mollie and Karen and even Lyndie's grandfather all play in Jake's life. I have to say as well how much I love how Becky continues to weave the former characters into this story as I loved Meg and Bo's story as well as Celia and Ty's. Amber is such a loveable character as well and the dating challenge that she and Lyndie make adds so much entertainment to this story! There are just so many wonderful lines in this story and moments that I highlighted and reread while reading this book. I am looking forward to Dru's story next, but also disappointed that it will be the end of the Porter Family series. "A Love Like Ours" is one of my top books this year for sure!
