“Read Claudia Connor for a consistently raw and emotional love story,” recommends Carly Phillips. Now the swoon-worthy McKinney Brothers series from this bestselling author continues as JT, the youngest of the trio, discovers that only love can make him whole.
She’s fighting for control. . . . Paige Roberts learned to fend for herself growing up. Now she’s doing everything possible to give her daughter, Casey, the stability she never had. But when the vivacious five-year-old decides she’s done wearing her prosthesis, Paige faces her toughest challenge yet: trusting a handsome, brooding stranger who simply wants to help.
He’s struggling to connect. . . . JT McKinney lost more than his leg in a car accident that stole his dreams of pro football. Eight years later, he’s made a new life for himself far away from his old one. His business is developing cutting-edge prosthetics and he’s more than happy to turn his attention to machines instead of people. Still, he can’t shake the feeling that something’s missing.
Will they take a chance on love? . . . When JT gets the chance to help Paige’s daughter, he takes it. He never planned on the two of them tearing down his walls or teaching him to believe in himself again. Paige might not believe in happily ever afters, but JT wants more than anything to be her prince. They’ll both have to let go of the past if they want a future.
A pretty fine read, with a engaging plot and the sweetest characters that will draw you into their story.
Paige is working herself to the bone trying to give her and her daughter a secure life. Working more than one job just to keep a roof over their head and food on the table and trying to get through college. Her daughter, Casey, is the sweetest, most inquisitive, most insightful little girl but is struggling with being different with her prosthetic leg. When Paige meets JT at one of her jobs, her life begins to change for the better although with some reluctance on her part. She is so used to doing everything by herself that having someone who wants to help is a new feeling. JT has so much to offer them both as he opens his life to them and finds himself wanting to make a difference. In having lost a leg himself, he shows Casey a whole new outlook on life.
This was very much a sweet read about opening up and letting others in. It is also about realising that dreams and priorities change as our lives change. This is a quiet read with the focus on the characters and the turmoil they feel but this made the read for me. It was worth it all for the time I got to spend with these characters and their story.
