This is the second in the McKettricks of Texas series.

I was only so-so on this book. I liked it well enough, but I didn't find myself really feeling the building of the relationship between Garrett and Julie. It focused a lot on Julie and not much on Garrett. What was focused on Garrett didn't seem to have enough depth. The time they spent together really didn't seem to have much depth. I was hoping for a little more romance and connection with them.

I'm also a stickler for consistency. In Tate's book, specific ages and age differences were never mentioned for the siblings. In this book, it was noted that each set of siblings are 1 year apart and they are the same ages (28, 29, 30). This does not work with one statement in Tate's book about Libby & Tate's age differences, "When Libby was fifteen and Tate was seventeen." They could not be 2 years apart at any time--I could see 16 & 17, but not 15 & 17. Just a minor editing miss.

It is not necessary to have read Tate's story, but it will add more to the story if you have read it. There is more lead-in to the next book about Austin and Paige. I have to admit that I am most interested in their story and hope that it lives up to the build up in the first two books.

It is too bad men like Garrett and his brothers exist only in Linda Lael Miller's imagination. Garrett's too good to be true. A rich, educated, handsome, Porsche-driving cowboy who falls in love with Julie's 4 yr old son and 3-legged dog as much as with her.
Where were men like this when I was a young single mother? In my imagination. It's a refreshing change from testosterone-overloaded Seal-types from Suzanne Brockmann and genetically enhanced or vampires from Christine Feehan, but I thoroughly enjoyed Garrett and Julie. I am a fan of stories that connect family characters, and the McKettrick clan
have been a very nice escape!

I've never met a Linda Lael Miller man I didn't like, nor have I ever not read a book of hers that I didn't like a lot. I appreciate the great sex that leaves a lot more to my imagination than to the written word, too. I know the sex was excellent, but I appreciate the fact that it's not so graphic that I'd be embarrassed to carry this book to my Sunday school class.

I'm waiting for Austin and Paige, last of the trilogy. Their story is working up to being another fun read.

I have a love/hate relationship with Miller. This one fits into the blah category. Half way through the book I was wondering why I was forcing myself to labor through it. I decided to stop reading because there are just better books out there to spend my time on, some of them by Miller even. It's not her worse work, it's just very boring.
