This was a well thought out story, highlighted by plenty of angst and suspense with a dose of romance and second chances. Axel, the strong silent type with Cruz his lost love who happens to turn up in Last Stand with her adopted son Diego. Lots happen and the ending is different but it is a HEA.
Sinclair Jayne gets better and better! I just loved reading A Son For The Texas Cowboy. Cruz and Axel walked out from the pages and took me with them, while Cruz’s adopted son Diego nearly stole the show at times. This story takes readers back to the small Texas hill country town of Last Stand, and if you’ve been reading other books set there you’ll come across a few familiar faces in this one. It’s the sort of town I just love - everybody knows everybody else and they’ll all pitch in to help when needed. Back to Axel and Cruz, who have history and then some between them having fallen in love seven years earlier. Both have baggage - Axel is still dealing with guilt over the drowning death of his younger brother years earlier and anger over his parents’ deaths. Cruz has had family issues too - a father who dragged her from one place to another through her childhood after her mother left, and a brother she didn’t know she had and who died in military service not long after they first met. She’s determined to provide a stable home life for her brother’s son Diego and she’s worried that getting involved with Axel again could break Diego’s heart if they break up. Of course there’s more to this story than that and much for these two to resolve. With emotional ups and downs to overcome and plenty of action on the sidelines the story had me hooked throughout.
