Wowza! This book did not feel like a Harlequin Desire imprint! I expect more of a "closed door" when it comes to the sexy times in these novels. That wasn't the case with Jessica Lemmon's book, Lone Star Lovers. It was simply delicious.
Zach Ferguson comes from old Texas oil money. Like, billions of it! He's the fun guy of the family; always looking for a good time. But under that gorgeous smile, and yummy dimple, is a guy who is still licking the wounds of his broken heart from years ago.
Penelope Brand has a plan. She left behind her tattered reputation and drama for a fresh start in Dallas. She's a savvy businesswoman who doesn't have time for anything more than a sizzling one-night stand. Too bad her heart has other plans.
This book is full of some of my favourite tropes in romance; a fake engagement, a surprise pregnancy, and Billionaires. It's like Christmas all wrapped up in a book!
I loved these two characters together. They were so much fun. Zach brought out Pen's fun side, which she desperately needed. While there is some crazy chemistry between them, there is also an amazing friendship. I love when the hero and heroine form a solid relationship that isn't just about the physical stuff. There was plenty of banter that I have come to expect from a Jessica Lemmon book. This author writes some of my favourite dialogue.
The journey to their happily ever after didn't come easy. Both of these characters had to learn to let go and grab hold of what they wanted. It was amazing watching Zach and Pen grow, in both personality and emotionally. I really cared about these two. I was completely invested in their story.
I absolutely can not wait for the next book! Zach's brother, Chase has me intrigued. He was so in control in this book. There was a second where he looked liked he wanted to unravel, but he didn't. That's the moment that I knew his book was going to be fantastic!
