It’s a good thing Julie can’t stand the man, he’s arrogant, opinionated, and very full of himself, but then Julie gets to see another side of Garrett McKettrick. Garrett’s very warm and caring with precocious Calvin and equally gentle and kind to her special needs dog, suddenly Julie feels an ache in her heart when this man is around, a complication her already convoluted life doesn’t need. Garrett feels an attraction for the gorgeous Julie, but if he enters into a relationship with the hometown teacher, can he fit her into his political career?

Linda Lael Miller’s animated style of writing is sizzling hot in the Texas sun with McKettricks of Texas: Garrett. Three McKettrick brothers who love three hometown sisters is the premise of this romantic series. We were introduced to the characters in Tate’s story and it will be great to follow it along to its conclusion when Austin hooks up with youngest Remington sister, Paige, in the next book.
