Cara McCord had a new lease on life. After hearing the news that she was cancer free, the Texas beauty was ready to move forward and live life to the fullest…starting with losing her virginity. There was only one problem, though—the gorgeous blonde’s heart beat for one cowboy alone, and he was someone she knew she could never have.
Trace Briggs found the woman of his dreams when he was nine years old. For years he’d been forced to be a spectator on the sidelines of her life. But now circumstances had changed. The sexy, chiseled cowboy knew the time had come to claim the woman he’d loved since she was in pigtails.
Convincing Cara would take all of his heart, and Trace was ready to put it all on the line. Will Cara finally allow herself to truly live…and love?

Loved this sweet story!
Trace and Cara’s story is full of confusion, love, romance, tragedy and saving grace. You will enjoy this sweet romance and particularly love the ending.
Convincing Cara by Melanie Shawn is book 2 in their new Wishing Well Texas series. This story stars Cara McCord and Trace Briggs. Trace is an older brother of Cara’s best friend Harmony and brother-in-law of her other best friend Destiny. Trace has been in love with Cara since she was kid and Cara was also in love with Trace since they were young. Yet, neither knew of the other’s feelings. Part of that reason could be due to the fact that Cara was dealing with leukemia through her teens. Cara had finally received the news that she was cancer free, so she was ready to live life to its fullest. Trace decided her was going to be the one to help her get started.
This was a beautiful love story that had me rooting for these two. I was wondering how Trace would convince Cara to trust him. I was wondering if Cara would give Trace a chance at more than just being friends. I was truly wondering how these two could keep their relationship a secret from their friends and family.
I enjoyed Convincing Cara and was pleased with the way Melanie Shawn found a way for Cara and Trace to find their true love and happy ever after. I highly recommend this book and am looking forward to reading the next story in the Wishing Well series.
