SOMEBODY LIKE YOU by Lynnette Austin

A Maverick Junction Novel
Book One
Lynnette Austin

Cash Hardeman thinks he'll have all the time in the world to find the right woman . . . until he discovers he might lose the family ranch if he's not married by his thirtieth birthday. So when Boston beauty Annelise blows into town on her Harley, Cash can't help wondering if she's the sexy, leather-clad answer to all his problems.

Giving her bodyguards and the paparazzi the slip, heiress Annelise Montjoy comes to Maverick Junction on a mission to help her ailing grandfather. But keeping her identity hidden in the small Texas town is harder than she expected-especially around a tempting cowboy like Cash. He's the kind of man who makes her want to spill all her secrets. Soon Annelise starts to wonder if she's finally found the man who can love her for herself rather than her money. But will the secrets they both keep ruin their plans to ride off into the sunset together? 

Lynnette AustinLynnette Austin loves Starbucks, Peppermint Patties,and long rides with the top down and the music cranked up! One of the great things about writing is that daydreaming is not only permissible but also encouraged. She grew up in Pennsylvania, moved to New York, then to Wyoming and presently divides her time between Florida's beaches and Georgia's mountains. She's been a finalist in RWA's Golden Heart contest, PASIC's Book of Your Heart contest, and Georgia Romance Writers' Maggie contest. 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.


How many of us would like to be an heiress who can buy anything you want except....?   The author gives us a read where we have an heiress with all the money she could want but it can't buy her what she wants So she takes off to maverick Junction.  Trouble awaits. She meets up with Cash Hardeman, hardly the kind of man she's known.  The author peaks the interest with Cash. He's a hunk and isn't afraid of working hard.  How can you not like a book with a  gorgeous hunk.? Then the author gives us those secrets that we all have.   Annelise is hiding her true identity and Cash, well in order to inherit from his grandfather, there's a small catch.  What will this do to the budding romance between the two. ? Can they go beyond the secrets.?  I liked Cash but Annelise was so childish.  She can't do anything that the normal person can do.    Money has spoiled her.  She doesn't think anything of spending it  on frivolous things.  The author not only gave two well described characters but there were others that I really liked.  Cash's dog.  I can just picture the dog rubbing against Annelise's legs and her getting annoyed.  As I read, the author put in another character and that is Douglas.  Annelise's parents think she should marry him.  Arranged marriage?  Little outdated, I thought, but interesting.  The author made the small Texas town come alive.  You could picture yourself living there.   I had a little trouble with Cash and Annelise really being right for each other.  Their backgrounds being so different.  How could Cash, who appears down to earth, hard working and just himself put up with the body guards, the lavishness and the publicity that Annelise gets?  Cash loves ranches, Annelise loves mansions.  The author definitely gives the reader a lot to think on.   Love does funny things to people.  The author also adds a little humor to the mix but I'll let you find that one out.  As the author adds in a little country music, you'll find yourself singing along as you read.   Give this book some time, uninterrupted time, because you won't want to put it aside for a later time. Will romance prevail?

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author and Night Owl Reviews and voluntarily decided to review it.

I would give this book 4 STARS.
