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.
Delightful and entertaining mix of life's drama and triumph.
As soon as Lucky's friend, mentor, and business partner, Dixie Mae, died, his life was turned upside down, like hurricane force wind, nothing was in control, and everything was a chaotic mess.
Cassie and Lucky are kindred spirits, even though so different in their characters and lifestyle. But they have a connection, more than just knowing each other all their lives, and growing up in the same town. The bond they have, goes deeper than either is ready to admit, the chemistry between them is palpable and visual for all to see.
I loved them together, the support they gave each other came naturally to them. They genuinely liked each other, had fun together, and enjoyed each other's company.
And with the kids, they were an instant family. Who wouldn't fall in love with Mia and her magic stars, and MacKenzie's teenage angst is easy to understand, and even relate to. Though chaos seemed to shadow every moment of their lives, with each other, they have a safe haven, where they could take a moment to breath.
The story breaks your heart a bit, there's pain, sorrow, and regrets. Feelings that goes so deep, are so raw, that they will leave scars, as they heal. The loss of Dixie Mae, the loss of parents, the lack of them, the past failures, defeats, they all are carrying their own, and shared, troubles. But the tale is not just blues and sadness, there's growth, redemption, and healing. The joy of life, often delivered by delightful Mia, or Lucky, and the passion to find a place in life, somewhere, where they belong, and wanted in, and want to build their lives in.
The subtle humor that riddled the story is brilliant, it brings light into the moments of despair, and laughter to the moments of jubilation.
To fit so many emotions, feelings, and so much life into one story, with characters you fall in love with, and want to spend time with, events that touch your heart and mind, makes you shed a tear, and laugh out loud, to deliver such a sensational knockout, deserves only the highest score
