Book Review: Becoming Us

Happy Wednesday, friends! Today I’m thrilled to share with you my review of Becoming Us by Jenn Faulk and Jaycee Weaver

Be sure to check out this great story!

About the Book

He’s easy-going and charming. She’s hot-tempered and tightly wound. Can they become better together than who they are apart?

Working through the disappointment of a teaching career that isn’t what he expected it to be, Mason Hayes’ otherwise cushy life gets turned upside down by the sudden loss of both parents in a car accident, leaving him with no one in the world. Until, that is, a half-sister he never knew existed shows up.

Hailee Miller-Garcia would do anything for Gina Bennett, including make a trip to meet the brother Gina’s never known – despite the issues Hailee’s having with her mother and little brother. As Mason’s life becomes entangled with her own, his laidback approach challenges her to reevaluate her own ways of dealing with the past, the present, and her dreams for the future.

Delving past friendship and growing into deeper feelings, it’s clear Hailee and Mason are better together. But the road ahead may be rocky and full of unexpected detours, challenging each of them to draw closer to Christ, work through their issues, and dream of a different future for themselves as they become more than a you and a me – they become us. 


My Thoughts:

What a lovely story! I am a huge fan of Jaycee Weaver’s books, and this is my first read from Jenn Faulk. I love how the authors writing voices blended really well, but were still each unique and original! Mason and Hailee were great characters who were very relatable, I was rooting for them from the start! This book is the perfect blend of fun, lighthearted moments, swoony romance, meaty topics, and a beautiful faith story, all of which adds up to exactly what I’m looking for in a Christian contemporary romance! Becoming Us is a beautiful story of true love and discovering who God created you to be! I so enjoyed this book and highly recommend it!

I received a complimentary copy of this book which did not influence my review in any way. All thoughts and opinions are one hundred percent my own.
