“I think Ms. Crownover has definitely put her stamp on this series”
~ Under the Covers

When I first heard about this series I couldn’t imagine to read a book from Jay Crownover that involved cowboys.  I’ve always thought of her writing a bit edgier than that.  But I was extremely curious so I decided to give this a shot.  UNBROKEN is the start of the Loveless Texas series and it’s definitely more of a small town contemporary romance than a cowboy romance.  Which, surprisingly, worked really well for me!

This is about one of the bad boy Lawton sibling.  He’s a big rodeo star with a gambling problem, and the gambling debts he’s secretly gotten himself into have now jeopardized his career and his family’s safety.  In order to finish paying off the debt he has to agree to take on a modeling job that he would’ve never otherwise found himself involved with.  A new skin care line for men.  And that skin care line if the baby product of our heroine, who wants to prove to her father that her ideas will make their company money.

I guess you could say this is a forced proximity story because they have to reluctantly work together and spend time together as a result.  I would’ve loved to see more of the rodeo in this one, but at the same time it was nice to not have that big element changing the feel of the story.  It’s just a quick and fun story and I think it sets up the series nicely.

I may not have fallen in love with Crew and Della, but from the little bit we know of the Lawton older brother Case I’m so ready for his book.  I think Ms. Crownover has definitely put her stamp on this series and I’m looking forward to seeing where it goes from here.

I’m a 30 something sun lover living in the Big Apple (read New York).I’m a book and coffee addict and lover of all things elephants.

I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!

I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.

Sounds like a good read for when I’m in a reading funk….especially if it gets me to the older brother’s book.
