Lynnette Austin Book Blast and Reviews

The question begs to be asked. Is there anything sexier than a cowboy?

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?


Elizabeth's Review ~ Somebody Like You by Lynnette Austin

3.5 stars - Worth a Reader's Time

This is a sweet story of two people who on paper don't belong together finding exactly what they need when they weren't looking.
I like both Annie and Cash and really liked them together. The fact that they both made jumping to conclusions an Olympic sport was my one big complaint and the thing that kept this from being a 4 star read for me.
Overall, this is well written and a unique take on the city girl/cowboy theme. All of the characters are well developed and the potential stars of future books are woven into the story in such a way that getting to know them does not detract from the main couple.
While Annie and Cash's romance takes center stage, they each have an interesting sub plot to add flavor.
I'm looking forward to reading the other books in the Maverick Junction series.

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.

Elizabeth's Review Nearest Thing to Heaven by Lynnette Austin

My rating: 4 of 5 stars - Would Recommend to a Friend

Normally when I read a series, I get super exited about book 1 then struggle a little bit with book 2. That was so not the case with Nearest Thing to Heaven. I think I may have enjoyed this book a little bit more than the first because this book dives right in almost immediately after then end of Book 1 and you get more story vs world building. That said, if you haven't read the first book, I would not recommend starting here.
Nearest Thing to Heaven is a sweet story about a second chance at love (for the hero) and self discovery (for the heroine). We meet Ty and Sophie in the first Maverick Junction book and meet up with them again when they are together for Cash and Annie's wedding. Fate definitely plays a part in shoving these two together and the results are sweet and a little steamy.
This is a well written series continuation. Ty and Sophie are both very easy to like and the secondary cast is active and equally fun. Ty's the boys are scene (and heart) stealers! There is a mild suspense element, but no big surprises. This has definitely left me hungry for the series conclusion!

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.
