BOOK BLAST: Somebody Like You AND Nearest Thing to Heaven by Lynnette Austin



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?

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.

About the Author:

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.

I received copies of these books in exchange for honest reviews.


5 out of 5 stars

Somebody Like You, the first Maverick Junction novel was a great contemporary romance. The whole rich city girl falling for the country guy is a story that I have read many times before, but Lynnette Austin took the popular trope and made it stand out from the crowd in this extremely memorable and satisfying romance. I absolutely loved this book! It was such a flawless love story and I couldn't get enough of Cash and Annie. Everything about how their romance developed was absolutely wonderful. I loved all the back and forth between these two as well as all the sweet, adorable moments. I also really loved that this book didn't turn into a marriage of convenience story given Cash's situation. While I do love that trope, I really enjoyed that that was not the case with Cash and Annie. When it came to these two finally getting together it was because they loved each other and not for any other reason and that is what really made this romance for me. Another thing that I really loved about this book was all the family drama. Some of it felt kind of like I was watching a soap opera, but it was all so entertaining. Overall, I enjoyed this book so much and with this book Lynnette Austin has become a go to author for me.


5 out of 5 stars

Nearest Thing to Heaven, the second Maverick Junction novel was even more amazing than the first book. When we first met Ty in the previous book I immediately fell in love with him because single dads are my absolute favorite type of hero in a romance novel, but that's not the only reason I absolutely loved this book. While Ty was great, I also really loved Sophie, she was quirky and so very likable. But what I loved most about this book were the triplets. Jonah, Jesse, and Josh were absolutely adorable and all the scenes in which we get to see the way Ty was with then and also the way Sophie was with with them absolutely made this book for me! Then on top of all that cuteness, the romance in this book really was on point. It made me feel all the feelings which is always the goal for me when I'm reading a romance. The only thing I didn't absolutely love about this book was the part concerning Sophie's possessive ex. I didn't really find that part necessary and the book would have been the same without those scenes, so it just didn't work for me. But other than that I loved this book! It was a phenomenal heartfelt romance and I highly recommend it!
