She’s fighting for control. . . . Paige Roberts learned to fend for herself growing up. Now she’s doing everything possible to give her daughter, Casey, the stability she never had. But when the vivacious five-year-old decides she’s done wearing her prosthesis, Paige faces her toughest challenge yet: trusting a handsome, brooding stranger who simply wants to help.
He’s struggling to connect. . . . JT McKinney lost more than his leg in a car accident that stole his dreams of pro football. Eight years later, he’s made a new life for himself far away from his old one. His business is developing cutting-edge prosthetics and he’s more than happy to turn his attention to machines instead of people. Still, he can’t shake the feeling that something’s missing.
Will they take a chance on love? . . . When JT gets the chance to help Paige’s daughter, he takes it. He never planned on the two of them tearing down his walls or teaching him to believe in himself again. Paige might not believe in happily ever afters, but JT wants more than anything to be her prince. They’ll both have to let go of the past if they want a future.
My ‘Blogging Reader’s ARC-Review’ after reading ‘WORTH IT ALL’ by Claudia Connor:
This is my honest review for the third novel of The McKinney Brothers Series, which is titled “Worth It All” by author Claudia Connor. This novel continues to deliver a wonderful new love story every time as we the readers are introduced more thoroughly to another McKinney brother. Those handsome, tough, yet lovable men in the McKinney clan continue to steal hearts and fill the list of dream-book-boyfriends. This one does not disappoint at all when it let’s us get to the know the youngest sibling, J.T. McKinney. The story is written in the two P.O.V.’s(point of views) of Jake “J.T.” McKinney and single-mother Paige Roberts.
Jake “J.T.” McKinney is as handsome as his brothers, with his dark hair and eyes. J.T. is the youngest brother who decided to move across the country. As the head engineer and one of the founders of a renowned and successful prosthetic company, he usually keeps busy with that. There is only one thing that he didn’t expect to draw his attention, and that was the beautiful blonde waitress at the nearby diner. He has reasons from his past as to why he isn’t interested in pursuing any kind of long-term relationship but he can’t shake his curiosity about the mysterious waitress.
Paige Roberts is a very hard working single-mother. She never has anytime for herself and focuses on her daughter Casey, working, and taking classes. When a very tall, dark and handsome regular customer begins a conversation with her daughter Casey at the diner, about their common prosthetic legs, there begins a battle for Paige. The battle to stay focused. It’s not so hard to do since her reason is Casey but Jake seems to make it easy to sometimes get lost in the “what if’s” for her daughter and herself.
For Paige, watching Jake be so easy-going with her daughter Casey, it wasn’t not hard to accept his offers of help for Casey’s prosthetic issues. Paige and Jake “J.T.” are both dealing with their pasts that have left them both cautious and hesitant on considering more beyond friendship. But with a connection that is hard to keep ignoring, Jake and Paige will have to decide how to deal with their growing feelings. Can Paige ever give herself a chance to try to have romance in her life? Will Jake “J.T.” ever find forgiveness for the guilt he feels for his past? The story-line was enjoyable and held a wondrous depth of emotion from the characters and their pasts. Great story, wonderful characters and worth recommending both this novel and this series. Check this out for an engaging romance! 🙂
MY BLOGGING READER’S STAR RATING: ‘HOW TO DISAPPEAR’ 4 out of 5 stars:
How I imagined the characters while reading ‘WORTH IT ALL’:
★★★MEMORABLE QUOTES & LINES FROM ‘WORTH IT ALL’★★★
Paige’s thoughts on Jake: He had a quiet, easy way about him. There was no swagger, he didn’t saunter- though looking like he did, he most definitely could have. Could have sauntered, sashayed, skipped, or even flown, and any woman in his vicinity would have fallen into his arms, their eyes glassing over.
Paige’s thoughts: And all she could think was, More. More of his taste, his scent, his touch. In this moment there was nothing else to think about, nothing else to want except this man with his hands and mouth making her entire body hum with pleasure.
Jake/J.T.’s thoughts: He’d never gone slow, never taken his time to explore a woman’s body. He’d never wanted to. Until Paige.
