Release Blitz ~ Review ~ Can't Stop Lovin' You by Lynnette Austin

Brawley must find a way to convince Maggie 
that their one true home is with each other.

Maverick Junction #3
Lynnette Austin


Maggie Sullivan can't wait to get out of Texas. Luckily, she just got the break she needed to make her big-city dreams a reality. But then Brawley Odell swaggers back into Maverick Junction, looking hotter than ever in his dusty cowboy boots and well-worn jeans. He's the guy she still dreams of at night. The guy who broke her heart when he left her behind.

Fed up with city life, Brawley jumps at the chance to return home and take over the local vet's practice—and get back to the smart, sassy woman he's never been able forget. He couldn't be prouder of Maggie's new wedding-dress business . . . until he realizes it may mean losing her all over again. Determined to win her back, Brawley must find a way to convince Maggie that their one true home is with each other.


A determined second chance…

Maggie and Brawley’s story has been percolating through this series and finally, finally, it was their turn! If you’ve read Ty and Sophie and Cash and Annie’s stories than you are joyfully familiar with the towns of Maverick Junction and Lone Tree. They are filled with characters that warm the soul in true Texan fashion.

Maggie and Brawley had a falling out years earlier and living in different towns/cities allowed that distance to exist… until now. Brawley is back and he is determined and relentless in trying to breach the canyon-size gap between them. Maggie is having none of it! Let the games begin!

“She’d convinced herself she hated him. But despite that, she wanted him, and that really pissed her off.”

Their story was full of all the things I have come to expect from this series, this author. The banter is at times snarky, sometimes sweet but always with a wealth of emotion behind it. And they are not alone. There is family and friends that make their story richer, funnier and all the better for the love and support – and kick in the pants – they provide at just the right time.

While the storyline was not new, I couldn’t help but fall in love with the towns, and the characters, all over again. They are a slice of everyone’s life – or what we would like it to be… I hope there is more to come in this series as I’m not ready to leave this corner of Texas!

Lynnette Austin, a recovering middle school teacher, loves long rides with the top down and the music cranked up, the Gulf of Mexico when a storm is brewing, chocolate frozen custard, anything by Blake Shelton, Chris Young, and Thomas Rhett, and sitting in her local coffee shop reading and enjoying an iced coffee. She and her husband divide their time between Southwest Florida's beaches and Georgia's Blue Ridge Mountains. Having grown up in a small town, that's where her heart takes her—to those quirky small towns where everybody knows everybody...and all their business, for better or worse. Writing for Grand Central and Sourcebooks, she’s published twelve novels and is at work on a new series.
