A wild Texas cowboy has finally met his match in this sizzling, small town romance from bestselling author Kimberly Lewis.
For years, Karlie Kyle has had it bad for Luke McKade, wishing he'd see her as something more than a shy girl in braided pigtails. But now that she's all grown up, she's ready to stake her claim and brand the heart of the sexy, smooth-talking cowboy who "can't be tamed."
Luke doesn't do commitment, but when Karlie shows up on his family's ranch—with dangerous curves and a tempting proposition he just can't refuse—he quickly finds she's got a way of getting him to do things he swore he'd never do…like wanting to break all of his rules and never let her go. Can he keep things casual when their temporary agreement starts getting cozier by the minute? Or will the pull of something deeper convince him that love is worth the risk?
"A tempting battle of hearts that is worth every minute." — Hopeless Romantic Blog
One of the best books I have read. Great character development. Loved the humor and strong family ties. Luke and Karlie were so great together. Just a really enjoyable book.
Luke by Kimberly Lewis is book three of The McKades of Texas. This book can be read as a standalone but it characters from books one and two show up in this book as well. I didn’t read the first two books and was able to follow along very well with the story line but I will definitely be going back to read books one and two now. Karlie Kyle has loved Luke for as long as she can remember but she’s never been able to get him to notice. Luke runs into Karlie at a diner and can’t stop thinking about her. What he doesn’t realize is, it’s about to get harder to stop thinking about her. Karlie and Luke decide to be together for the summer. Karlie’s heart is all in though. Will their summer end in heartbreak or will Karlie get everything she’s ever wanted? I absolutely loved this book. It was a great story and the characters were amazing. Karlie is so strong and independent! She is truly an inspiration. I couldn’t get enough of this book and am definitely going to go back and read the first two books. I absolutely recommend this book!
Luke: The McKades of Texas, Book 3 by Kimberly Lewis
This is my first book by this author and I absolutely loved it!! I had no problem reading this as a standalone but do want to go back and read Zane and Norah’s stories because I enjoyed this one so much. I love cowboy stories and this one was perfect. I fell in love with the characters..All of them...I loved the interaction between them all and Karlie’s spunk was awesome.
I read this in one sitting because it flowed so perfectly and although it was somewhat predictable I don't even care, I loved everything about it. I was so angry a few times at Luke but then he did something that will go down as one of my favorite scenes ever, I had big old alligator tears rolling down my cheeks and I felt like I was right there watching it all play out. This could be a movie, there's no doubt about it and I can not wait to go back and read the first two, as well as check out what else this author has available.
This was awesome and I highly recommend it, it just has that feel good vibe and I just know I'll read this whole series again and again.
