Worth it all was so sweet. Like All the McKinney brothers I fell in love with JT. There is just something about this series that I just connect with. The characters are all amazing and the stories so touching. This book was no different. It was a beautiful, heartwarming love story. Worth it all was a easier read than the last one. No real angst just a nice easy light heart love story with an adorable little girl as a bonus.
JT was wonderful and so sweet.

The McKinney Brothers is such a sweet and fun series. I was just thinking about them when I heard JT’s book was releasing soon. So obviously, I jumped in as soon as I could.

JT is the youngest McKinney brother and I remember not loving JT when we met him in prior books, but this book takes place years after the others. He isn’t the cocky football player from his past, now JT is a successful biomedical engineer working to improve the life’s of amputees. Having an amputation himself he is well awa

Worth It All is the third book in The McKinney Brothers Series. Although it can be read as a stand-alone, I highly recommend reading the entire series to fully understand the dynamics between the characters. This series has been a delight to read because of the family relationships and the tender romantic themes.

Perfection. This book was exactly what I needed. It was light, heartfelt, and so damn sweet. Low on drama and with completely and totally dedicated MCs.

I LOVED JT... to be honest I didn't remember him from the other novels (I read them so long ago) but man, I'll never forget him again. He was awesome and I loved how he pursued Paige. He was hesitant and scared but he never ran scared and I really admired him for it. And Paige was t

Ms. Connor sure has a knack for developing the most swoon worthy males and introducing adorable, scrumptious little children for additional reading pleasure. This is the third book of the McKinney Brothers series, and we are gifted with yet another delectable, yet humble brother, who makes my toes tingle ;)

Eight years has passed since we first met nineteen year old, JT, in the first book of the series. He was quite coc
I can finally post my review

 photo Wort it All_zpsoucp2ww0.jpg

I freely admit that when it comes to Ms. Connor that I am biased, from the Worth the Risk to Worth it All I am a huge fan.

In saying that this book is different to the others but I think that has more to do with the fact of Ms. Connor’s writing and that each brother is different.

I also had to wait almost a year for this to be released but you can’t disturb a genius. Laying it on a bit thick here I know but you get me drift.

Both JT and Paige weren’t out looking for romance, but isn’t that always when it smacks you right up the head?! Both were hesitant and had a lot on their plate, but there is no stopping what the heart wants, especially when an adorable five year-old is involved. JT and Paige have been sharing stolen looks and heated glances every time he eats at the diner she works at. Their feelings begin to burn brighter and brighter when JT steps in to help Paige with her daughter, Casey, a five-year-old stru ...more

This was a very sweet book. And by sweet, I mean mushy, sappy, complete with talk about handsome princes and a hero that says, "make love".

Oh, and let's not forget the PG 13 sex scenes. Lol. I wish I could roll my eyes and be my usual sarcastic self. The truth is, I loved it anyway. I didn't think the swoon factor of Matt from book one could be matched, but JT was just as perfect. I also have to say, that this author is really good at writing child characters, imo.

Best thing I can say about this book... well, it was mediocre. I mean, it didn't even make me feel enough not to like it, it was just meh.

The characters were typical, those absolutely perfect people who are perfect together with the perfect people around and who think perfectly alike (yup, I said "perfect" so many times just so you can understand how this book made me feel).

I couldn't wait to read JT's story after getting small hints about him in the first two books in the series.

This book is definitely packed with romance and passion. Claudia Connor has such an amazing way of writing about families and especially children. She brings together strong women, children that will melt your heart from the very beginning and hot heroes. This wonderful combination makes for a swoon-worthy, heartwarming and sexy read.

I’m doing catch up on some books I’ve needed to read and review. I requested this in 2016/17 and didn’t realise it was book 3 in a series.

Although I got a little lost because of needing to have read the previous books I still liked it.

I love the easy reading of this authors words.

J.T./Jake was as amazing as his big brothers. Paige was amazingly strong and don't get me started on her little girl, Casey. Great romance with hot bedroom scenes, plus a bonus romance with Paige's cousin. Loved seeing all the McKinney boys again along with the multitude of kids every where.

Sweet story. Don't really have much more to say about it. Nice cover. Sorry I cannot be more gushing.

I liked this sweet romantic story. The characters in this book were absolutely wonderful and the story made my heart melt. This book is listed as the third book in the McKinney Brothers series but it is really more of a stand alone that is loosely linked to other stories. This is a series that you can easily jump in at any point. I have only read the second and third books and don't feel like I missed anything besides maybe another great stor
Tanja ~ T's Book ~ KT Book Reviews
There is one thing I know for sure when reading a Claudia Connor book. It’s that she is the single mom’s author. Any woman who is raising a child on her own and feels jaded by love needs to get herself as close as she can to a McKinney man. Men who, no matter what, stand up, protect, and love their woman and her child. Not many books out there are like these in my reading experience.

Having already experienced the incredible writing of Claudia Connor with the prior books in this series, I went into this story with immense anticipation and was quickly caught up in another wonderful story. Once I started reading this I simply could not stop, except when I had to (like going to work) and even then I was thinking about it and talking about it to my workmates. I really recommend that you put time aside to read this uninterrupted. Having said that, I also wanted it to never end an ...more

Worth is All is the third book in Claudia Connor's McKinney Brothers series. This is the first book I've read by this author and (obviously) the first book I've read in this series.

I know, I know. I am a heartless bitch for not LOVING this book. Tell me something I don't know. This book was good, it just did not come close to book 1 Worth the Fall (The McKinney Brothers, #1) by Claudia Connor , which I read right before this one. The little girl, Casey, was cute - but not nearly as cute as the kiddos in book 1. Actually her incessant questions bugged me a little. This book's rating is basically suffering because I read it so close to book 1. It also dragged a bit and the H/h were too scared of a relationship.

I listened to this new release in audio format. The narration gets about 3 stars from me but the story itself is still a 5 star read.


I fell in love with Claudia Connor's McKinney Brother's book ever since stumbling onto Worth the Fall. Now, I recommend the series to anyone who will listen to my bibliophilic ramblings :).

3.5+ RATING- I was really looking forward to reading Worth It All by Claudia Conner. I loved the first book in this series, Worth the Fall, and enjoyed the second book in the series as well. The story was pretty much everything I’ve come to expect from this author: quality writing, a heart-warming story, and likable characters. I know most readers of contemporary romances will love this one! (For readers that haven't read the earlier books, Worth it All will work fine as a stand-alone.)

This was the third book of the McKinney Brothers series and it's was equal wonderful as the two previous books!!! It was sweet, tender and overwhelming in a good way...
All those men in a way or another had their fair share in pain and they need the right person to heal them...

I honestly don't understand why those men are getting far away from the nest of their family when they are hurting... Man pride, maybe??? But they all did it!!!

I received an advanced copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

I try to read my books in the order that they will be released/review date, but when I get an advanced copy of a McKinney Brothers book I just can't help myself. I LOVE THIS SERIES SO MUCH! It doesn't matter what I am reading, it gets moved to the side (sorry other authors!) and the McKinney Brothers take center stage.
