“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.
This right here....this fantastic writing......THIS is why I fell in love with this author in Worth the Fall. I was completely in love with these characters at only chapter 3 in the book and it just got better from there.
JT "Jake" is the baby brother to the McKinney clan. He has been elusive and at the fringe during the previous stories. Time has moved forward since we last saw this family. The brothers are busy. Their families are growing. JT is in California and his guilt from his past keeps him from going home very often.
JT meets Paige at his favorite diner and soon meets her precious 4 year old Casey. He drawn to them and believe me, you will be hanging on everything that transpires after this meet. Casey is an amputee like JT and they bond almost immediately. The fact that JT also wants to bond with her mother, makes the story that much more endearing.
Single parent stories get me every time. But, aside from that pull, Jake McKinney has had a troubled past and needs to not only forgive himself but allow himself some joy in his life. His coming of age makes this story worth the read as well. So wonderful to meet these characters.
