“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.
Both JT and Paige weren’t out looking for romance, but isn’t that always when it smacks you right up the head?! Both were hesitant and had a lot on their plate, but there is no stopping what the heart wants, especially when an adorable five year-old is involved. JT and Paige have been sharing stolen looks and heated glances every time he eats at the diner she works at. Their feelings begin to burn brighter and brighter when JT steps in to help Paige with her daughter, Casey, a five-year-old struggling with her prosthetic leg. JT knows all about the challenges little Casey faces as a fellow amputee, and his heart is split wide open over Casey’s situation.
Paige doesn’t want to be indebted to anyone, she’s got a plan in place for making a better life with Casey so she doesn’t really have time to date, but JT is swooping in like a regular super hero, and her heart can’t resist this knight-in-shining-armor. Their romance was a slow burn that turned hot and passionate!
One of the things Claudia Connor excels at it portraying a close-knit, big family, complete with adorable kids and humorous exchanges. I dare you not to smile when the McKinney family is all together, bustling in chaos and sharing time! Paige and Casey fit right in with this big loving brood, and I loved catching up with everyone! My heart swells "seeing" the past couples happy in the future!
I have loved The McKinney Brothers series from the beginning so I was glad to be back with the clan in Worth It All! This series is a must read for any romance junkie (like me) out there.
