Somebody Like You
Maverick Junction #1
Lynnette Austin
Forever Yours


Cash Hardeman thinks he’ll have all the time in the world to find the right woman...until he discovers he might lose the family ranch if he’s not married by his 30th birthday. So when Boston beauty Annelise blows into town on her Harley, Cash can't help wondering if she's the sexy, leather-clad answer to all his problems.

Giving her bodyguards and the paparazzi the slip, heiress Annelise Montjoy comes to Maverick Junction on a mission to help her ailing grandfather. But keeping her identity hidden in the small Texas town is harder than she expected—especially around a tempting cowboy like Cash. He’s the kind of man who makes her want to spill all her secrets. Soon Annelise starts to wonder if she’s finally found the man who can love her for herself rather than her money. But will the secrets they both keep ruin their plans to ride off into the sunset together?

I have never read a Lynnette Austin, but like a true British girl, I'm in love with cowboys and Texas (ssshhh, don't tell my Pennsylvania Husband). So when I was offered the opportunity to read Somebody Like You, I jumped at the chance.

The story is about heiress Annelise Montjoy (aka Annie), who has come to Maverick Junction, TX, to find her dying grandfathers long lost half-sister, but what she didn't expect to meet was this smoking hot cowboy. But Annelise hasn't revealed her true identity to anyone, least of all Cash Hardeman, aka the smoking hot cowboy. But Cash has troubles of his own. But add to that lies, wills, and YouTube videos, you just know it's going to be explosive!

Somebody Like You is an enjoyable read, and the characters are likeable, but I found it a little choppy, which at times was frustrating, but it didn't distract too much from the book, although, I do wish it was smoother.

I give Somebody Like You 4 stars.

Nearest Thing to Heaven
Maverick Junction #2
Lynnette Austin
Forever Yours


Sophie London hates Texas. The longhorns freak her out and the wide-open spaces are more unnerving than a Chicago alleyway at night. But Sophie wouldn’t miss her cousin’s wedding for the world—even if it means returning to Maverick Junction . . . and to the dangerously irresistible Ty Rawlins. 

A single father of rambunctious triplet boys, Ty knows trouble when he sees it—and Sophie’s got it written all over her. Yet he’s never been able to stop thinking about her, after their one brief meeting. Maybe fate is giving him a second chance. But if Ty wants Sophie to swap her stilettos for cowgirl boots, they’ll each have to face the past—together.

So this is the second Lynette Austin book I have read, and also the second in the Maverick Junction series, and it called The Nearest Thing to Heaven....and this book truly is!

Honestly, it's like the perfect western romance; Widower Ty Rawlings, how has l 4 year old triplets, meets (for the second time) Sophie London, who is a greeting card company owner and designer, whom is in Maverick Junction, to serve as Maid of honor for cousin Annelise (Maverick Junction #1), but Sophie feel a lot like a fish out of water!

But surprisingly enough, Sophie has found the inspiration she needed for her business, in Maverick Junction, with Ty and the triplets, but just when everything is going so right, things blow up in their faces!

I truly love this book! The story is so smooth, the plot detailed and enjoyable, and you can't help but love the character's! Truly, the triplets stole my heart! Much like this town!

I give Nearest Thing to Heaven 5 stars!

Lynnette Austin, a recovering middle school teacher, loves long rides with the top down and the music cranked up, the Gulf of Mexico when a storm is brewing, chocolate frozen custard, anything by Blake Shelton, Chris Young, and Thomas Rhett, and sitting in her local coffee shop reading and enjoying an iced coffee. She and her husband divide their time between Southwest Florida's beaches and Georgia's Blue Ridge Mountains. Having grown up in a small town, that's where her heart takes her—to those quirky small towns where everybody knows everybody...and all their business, for better or worse. Writing for Grand Central and Sourcebooks, she’s published twelve novels and is at work on a new series.
