Series: McKinney Brothers Book #3
Author: Claudia Connor
Blurb: 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.
Thoughts: Some of the words that come to mind when trying to describe this book is ‘powerful’, ‘endearing’, and ‘heartwarming’. Not only does this book have a great romance story between two amazing characters that are facing plenty of challenges to their relationship all on their own, but we have the added addition of a little girl who wears a prosthesis. And who better to relate to her than a man who also has one? Some of the sweet little moments between these characters just wrenched at my heart! This is one of those topics that you don’t really see in books, particularly romances, but this really made me love the story all the more! Well worth a read…J
