Summary

Melanie Hanna has finally worked up the courage to travel to New York and tell an old flame that he's the father of her young son. She's done hiding and apologizing for her one impulsive night. When her best friend asks her brother to watch over Melanie, her emotional trip takes an unexpected and sizzling detour.

Charles Dery is at the top of his game, but all he can think about is bedding the woman he was asked to protect. When she's almost killed, he takes what he'd been denying himself and discovers he'll do anything to keep her - even break his own rules.

When it comes to love, two wrongs may just finally make a right.

Awesome, loving this series!!

Ruth Cardello does it again. This series just gets better and better.

This book is about Charles Dery and Melanie Hanna. We have met Charles and Melanie in the first book Taken, Not Spurred. This book is one hard decision after another for the 2 main characters. I have loved Melanie since the first book and she says what is on her mind. I wasn't a huge fan of Charles from the first book but I have slowly warmed to him during this book. All of characters from the first book are here and loads more.

Charles and Melanie make decisions that affect them and everybody around them. New York and Texas are places I want to visit because of this book. Charles doesn't want a family, he just wants Melanie. Melanie wants Charles but has to put her son first.

Love this story!!!

I would recommend any of Ruth Cardello books.

Brilliant

Very good storyline.narrator was funny and was quite good.The storyline was quite interesting.it can be listened to as a standalone but it is better to listen to the first book in the series as the characters come up in this second book and the first book tells how Charles and Melanie met which is what this story is about. I can hardly wait to read and listen to the third book in the series. brilliant.

Loved the characters!

My Musings

4.25 Stars: Story

2 Stars: Narrative

There is so much to love about these characters. From the hero and heroine to Melanie's adorable son. I could feel Charles' pain even though the reason for it is a bit weak. Melanie's pain was much more understandable. Many of her decisions from her past did greatly influence her life.

I did not care for the narrator at all. While she did give the characters distinctive voices, some of them were really bad. Charles sounded like he had a stick stuck up his rear end! David's voice was just plain annoying.

Overall, I really enjoyed Melanie and Charles' love story a lot, and I'm very glad I found this series. Happy reading!

Awesome Series!

Any additional comments?

This is an awesome series; this is the second book in The Lone Star series and was written by Ruth Cardello and narrated by Marian Harris. Melanie Hanna is traveling to New York to tell an old flame that he is the father of her young son. Charles Dery’s sister asks him to look over and protect her friend Melanie while she is in New York. Charles tries to deny his attraction to Melanie, but when she is almost killed he will do anything to protect her.

The narrator Marian Harris, did a wonderful job, and was very easy to listen too. I have listened to several books by this narrator and have loved every one, and I am looking forward to listening to more books by her. She did a great job with the different characters and their voices.

This book has a great story; if you are looking for a great romance with some humor, then you need to get this book. I am looking forward to the next book in this series.

A Review copy was provided to me in exchange for a fair and honest review. The free book held no determination on my personal review.

I loved this story waiting for more

This story had such meaning for me. It has made me think of finding my own second chance. You can't stop now what will happen with Dave? He is a vital character but a loner can't wait to see how you bring him out of his shell

Just awful performance.

Could not even get through this audible the performance was so horrible. Good grief have you never actually heard a Texan speak??? It may be a great book but I will never know. The reader just ruined it.

Tycoon Takedown

Loved this book. It has everything you need in it, a single mom who goes to New York looking for the father of her child who is now in kindergarten although she has not seen him since college and he doesn't know about the child and a super serious businessman who is the brother of mom's best friend and ends up with her. She not only intrigues and captivates him she turns his life upside down when she is dubbed the Takedown Cowgirl when she is mugged but takes down the mugger instead. Oh the joy of this and watching them find their way. So good.
