Publisher Description

He's a one-night charmer, playing for now — but she's playing for keeps.

Karlie Kyle has had it bad for Luke McKade since she was a shy ten-year-old in braided pigtails. Back then, she didn't have the courage to follow through on her crush. 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."

And lucky for Karlie, her new career is about to throw her right in his path again.

Luke doesn't do commitment, but when Karlie shows up to intern on his family's ranch—with dangerous new curves and a tempting proposition he just can't refuse—it's clear she isn't the same girl he grew up with.

Deep down, Luke knows the responsible thing to do is keep their relationship strictly professional. But with every secret encounter, he quickly finds Karlie's got a way of getting him to do things he swore he'd never do…

As their summer agreement heats up, the broken rules start to multiply until their casual fling threatens to move into uncharted territory. But when big dreams come knocking, can small-town love compete?

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

5 Stars

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.
