Lone Star Dad

Lone Star Dad
Linda Goodnight
Gena has moved back to her hometown of Gabriel's Crossing to raise her rebellious nephew, Derrick. She's hoping the country setting will help his resentment and rebellion. What she doesn't expect is to find herself living next door to Quinn. A football star who has also moved back home to nurse his wounds, both mental and physical. Quinn and Derrick hit it off with their love of football and concern for some orphan kittens. Gena had wanted to keep Quinn and Derrick as far apart as possible, but that doesn't look like it's going to happen.

This was an entertaining and sweet story. It was predictable, as are most romance stories, but the little touches of hometown, the slight twist about the sister, and the drama with Derrick all added up to make a fun story to read. The author did a great job of creating emotions and drama between the characters, but helping the romance to feel very real. I loved the authenticity of family and small town living. I liked it enough to check and see if there are stories about the other family members.

I received a copy of this book from NetGalley. All opinions expressed are my own.
