My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Luke (The McKades of Texas #3) by Kimberly Lewis was a wicket, fun, hot read that should not have read in 30+ weather.

Oh boy, oh boy! Where do I start? I'm going to skip my normal opening rant. Let's jump in, shall we?

Right from the opening, Karlie's voice was clean, and it oozed confidence. When she was recanting her past, you can hear the resolve in her character's voice. She wanted Luke, and she wasn't going to stop until she had him. She was bold, sassy, and a perfect mix of cowgirl and girl next door. I loved how she fit into McKade's family dynamics. How they couldn't tell she was head over heels for Luke is its own mystery.

Luke, oh Luke, you poor soul. He didn't know what hit him when Karlie walked back into his life, all grown up, and like I said, oozing sexy confidence. I like how the POV switched back a forth because I loved reading his inner conflicts. Then wanting to smack him silly and tell him to get over himself. Luckily, Karlie did that for me. I got a kick out of him, his smooth banter, cocky ways and, of course, the quick-fire banter between not only him and Karlie but his family. (It reminded me of how I and mine get alone. )

He wasn't your typical alpha male, sure he did reek of it, but the way he carried himself, and the respect he showed everyone that deserves it, made him stand out. He wasn't controlling Karlie, and at no point did he make her feel lesser than him. Instead, he praised her and her dreams. I hate to say it, but he was a true southern gentleman. (I want one!)

Overall this book was, for me, outstandingly good. The writing was smooth and easy to follow. There was a good balance between dialogue and storytelling. No filler and no lulls; I had this read in on one sitting. Everything was entertaining and kept my mind engaged right until the last page. I would also like to point out that all side characters were great. Each had its own personality and voices. They rounded out an already amazing story and added a layer of complexity, making you almost believe that this story did, in fact, happen.

This book is a super high recommendation from me. It's that perfect summer read that will have you laughing, grinning, angry, and giddy all at the same time.

Happy Reading
