Casey by Lori Foster

The last book in the Buckhorn series by Lori Foster (in the collection Enticing) and it was amazing.  I don’t have a favorite brother/Uncle but Casey, the son of Sawyer was wonderful.  He was just like his uncles and dad.

Casey in his youth is chased by girls and the one he resisted was Emma Clark.  He liked her but didn’t know that it was more until she ran away from their home.  Eight years later Casey is a vice executive in his stepgrandfathers company and doesn’t love it.  His life is fine, love his family but he has not settled down.  He keeps dating but not finding the one.  It is late at night as he and a woman, Kristin who he worked with, were driving down the road when he saw a car stalled on the road.  He gets out to help and low and behold is a woman from his past, Emma Clark.  Casey is blown away how she looks.  Immediately he wants her but is not sure if she is with the guy with her.  He has to find out.

Emma sees Casey and all the old feelings are back from when she was a kid.  Of course with her reputation for sleeping around she understood why Casey never took interest in her.  Emma was too unsure of herself  and her family problems still remained.  This was the reason she was back, her father had a stroke and she was worried.

Casey took this time now to get to know Emma.  He wanted to know everything about her and what happened in her past, her family and where she went off too when she ran away.  But Emma is resisting being honest with him, of course she couldn’t resist Casey or his family.  On a side note Damon, Emma’s friend, which was more like a brother was finding his way in town as well with a certain woman, Ceily.

This was a fantastic finish to the series.  I loved how the family grew up, especially all of the nieces and nephews.  It was nice to see all of the brothers happy and now Casey.

Jordan by Lori Foster

The fourth book, “Jordan” of the Buckhorn Series keeps getting better and better.  The brothers and their wives are fantastic!  I love how Lori Foster creates those realistic characters and situations.

This book starts out with Jordan making his way out of the country to a barn that worked as a bar and had girls danced.  He meets Georgia Barnes there as she is on the stage dancing.  Jordan is blown away by her.  And the instant that one of the men gets out of hand Jordan goes in a rage.  He doesn’t want anyone to touch her.  Because of Jordan’s gallant behavior gets the bar into a riot and police are summoned, not to mention an angry brother.  Morgan gets there and is hot tempered but helps Jordan and Georgia.

Within that moment Georgia knew that she was going to be in trouble.  Jordan was too amazing looking and she had no time in her life to have someone like that.  With an ex-husband behind her, striving for money, two children, a on and off mother who is sick, and a job she hates there is no time.  Of course Jordan doesn’t care.  He wants to protect her and the children, even her mom.

I loved this book.  Jordan was a wonderful character to find him getting involved and finding love.  I liked a section when Morgan tells Jordan…”You should give up right now, and save yourself a pound of heartache.  Tell her what it is you want.  Be up front with her….You’re caught.  You might as well accept it.”  Morgan was telling Jordan just to find a way to be with Georgia.  He was destined for her.  I thought this statement was hilarious since it was coming from Morgan, he has turned into such a romantic.

As this was the last book for the brother, still have “Casey” to read which I am looking forward to, I was very happy with what happened.  I thought the plot was fantastic with her begin an exotic dancer.  Georgia’s character is very strong.  Another part that I loved was that Megan, the boys mother, came to visit and see her daughter in laws.  She is a fantastic character.  I also liked how at the end Casey is becoming mysteries with the girl Emma Clark.  I am confused and intrigued to find out what is going to happen.

Morgan by Lori Foster

This is the second book of the series Buckhorn Brothers.  Lori Foster writes another hit with “Morgan”.  The brothers continue with Morgan taking the role of finding a wife.

Morgan Hudson the second oldest brother in the group is the sheriff for this small town and quite the ladies man but when he sees her everything changes.  Setting his sights on Misty Malone was a no no.  Misty was his new sister in law sister which meant she was off limits.  Except he couldn’t stop thinking about her.  He wanted to be with her and to protect her.

Misty thought that Morgan hated her and it was just as well because she did not need him in her life.  She was through with men all together, but Morgan made it difficult to keep him out of her mind with his comments and looks.  Of course her life has been thrown a few curves with her being arrested for stealing money, which she didn’t do!, and being pregnant.  Misty wanted the baby and knew she had to figure out a plan.  That plan did not include Morgan Hudson but he decided to barge into her life and offer a helping hand as well as a little romance.

I loved how Misty decided not to let her getting pregnant and abandon get her down and give up.  She is a strong and determined to make it on her own.  And even though she does accept help Misty keeps true to her own feelings.  With the second book behind me I keep finding that the Hudson brothers fascinate me.  I love their natural characteristics and their family dynamics.
