No strings attached is pretty much Lucky McCord’s calling card in Spring Hill, Texas, but when family is on the line, this cowboy’s honor and heart are about to get lassoed, tied and branded
Every family needs its black sheep, and Austin “Lucky” McCord is happy to oblige. The bad-boy bull rider lives fast and loose, until his business partner leaves him an unexpected bequest. Suddenly Lucky is sharing custody of two children with Cassie Weatherall, one of the few homegrown women he hasn’t bedded. And not from lack of trying…
Cassie fled her messy past to become a celebrity therapist in LA. So why does it feel so right to come back and share parenting duties—and chrome-melting kisses—with a man she’s striven to avoid? Loving Lucky always seemed like a sure bet for heartache. But for this perfectly imperfect family, Cassie might just gamble with everything she’s got.
Lone Star Nights is the second book in the McCord Brothers series. Lucky has a reputation for loving them and leaving them. But, he has become very successful as a rodeo promoter with his business partner, Dixie Mae. When she dies, he finds out that promising to fulfill her last wish will be more complicated than he thought. Cassie is Dixie Mae's granddaughter and learns she is also about to have her world turned around.
While I enjoyed this one, I can't say I loved it. It wasn't my favorite out the two I have read in the series. I did like Cassie and Lucky together, but I felt like the romance was all a bit too fast for me. The story only takes place over a couple of weeks, so I think it was the time line that prevented me from buying into it. As for the kids, I really didn't feel like I have a good sense of Cassie and Lucky interacting with them enough for me to buy into them becoming a happy family. I needed more scenes with them all together.
Having said that, the ending was perfect, especially the "surprises" in the will. I loved that Cassie's father got what he deserved! That was priceless! Logan's story comes out later in the year. I look forward to reading him find his love.
