Book review: McKettricks of Texas :Austin by author Linda Lael Miller

It's been a while since i've posted but in my defense it's been crazy busy at my house. My oldest graduated from High School in June. We threw him a party and we did college orientation. The month ended with 4th of July weekend of course and here i am. Doesn't mean i didn't squeeze in any reading. I can always squeeze some in here and there. The book i just finished is the third in a series by Linda Lael Miller on the McKettricks of Texas. This one was about Austin the youngest of the McKettrick brothers in this series.  The two oldest brothers have hooked up with sisters. The Remington sisters. There are 3 sisters and the youngest, Paige used to date Austin. He broke her young heart years ago because he was scared of how serious she was and didn't know how to handle it. He got caught red handed cheating on her. Years later Paige is a nurse and he is doing the rodeo circuit. In Tate's book he gets thrown off Buzzsaw  one mean ole bull and almost gets himself killed. In this book he decides he needs to face the bull down and ride it one more time. He does and gets the points to win. Later his older brothers track him down at a bar and confront him for doing something so foolish considering his previous injuries. He says he's fine but moments later he collapses and ends up in the hospital. Guess who the older McKettricks hire to be a nurse for him? Oh yes Paige. This move on at a slow and steady pace from there. Here is a little snippet about Austin's book.

McKettricks of Texas: Austin

World champion rodeo star Austin McKettrick finally got bested by an angry bull. His career over, his love life a mess, the lone maverick has nowhere to go when the hospital releases him. Except back home to Blue River and the Silver Spur ranch. But his overachieving brothers won’t allow this cowboy to brood in peace. They’ve even hired a nurse to speed along his recovery. Paige Remington’s bossy brand of TLC is driving him crazy. As is her beautiful face, sexy figure and silky black hair.

Paige has lost count of the times Austin has tried to fire her, but this determined nurse is not going anywhere until he’s healed, body and heart.

Austin’s brothers are laying bets that Paige’s place in his life just might become permanent.

If you've read the first two books in this series i believe you can see how this is going to end and even if you haven't you can. it's kind of predictable but i like it just the same. This was a great series that i'm sorry has ended. Can't wait to see what Linda Lael Miller writes next. You can find out more about this book and her other books by going to her website by clicking here. Where you can also read a excerpt from Austin's book as well as the first two. I give The McKettricks of Texas 5 out of 5 Modokker Book Pick stars. Wonderful fun read with a bit of romance, action mixed nicely together.
