You and Me
by Becky Wade
Publisher: Independent
Series: A Misty River Romance
ISBN: 979-8759835783

I have loved this series and when Becky reached out to me, asking me to review this novella, I was very honored. She is easily one of my favorite Christian romance authors. Becky sent me her novella to review!


Easy-going, artistic Connor Bryant fell hard for his friend Shay Seaver when they were both in the seventh grade. Sixteen years later, he's returned to Misty River. She's finally between boyfriends. And his crush on her hasn't wavered. Now's his chance.

He tells Shay that he's found someone he wants to date and is in need of a makeover when it comes to his appearance and dating strategies. He asks if she'll serve as his consultant -- in hopes that he'll learn how he can become her ideal man. What he doesn't tell her? That she's the one he wants to date.

Sporty stationery shop owner Shay immediately agrees to Connor's request because he's one of the best guys she knows. However, she quickly realizes she's in over her head. She's pledged to help him win the affection of another woman -- even though she dearly wants to claim his heart.

It's Christmas in the mountain town of Misty River! This sweet contemporary romance novella, penned by Christy-winning author Becky Wade, can be read alone or paired with the other books in the series.

My Review: 

Want a book that gives you ALLLLL the feels. Here you go! Oh my gosh, You and Me hit all of the marks! I think it takes an incredibly talented author to make a novella feel like a full length novel. The story wasn't rushed and it felt perfectly right!

First we meet Connor and in that initial meeting you get to understand the depth of his heart for Shay. Then there's Shay, who has been rather oblivious to Connor aside from a somewhat friend in art class. Connor's idea to of how to let Shay know he cares for her could either go really well or blow up in his face.

Let me just say, the author wrote these characters in such a way that I fell in love with them. They were so incredibly wonderful and any reader will want to root for them. I had no idea that Connor was going to become one of my favorite leading men. I mean, with the work Shay does with him and seeing him through her eyes, it would've been impossible to ignore. The amount of romantic moments were exceptional and nothing forced, but incredibly natural.

The Christmas season just makes it completely "magical". The nativity section of the story was a beautiful way to share the gospel in the story and I could feel the emotions Shay was having as we played Mary and Joseph years and years ago. It's an emotional experience and I felt it through Shay.

I can't say enough about this amazing novella!! Give me more of the Misty River citizens!
