Luke is the third book in the McKades of Texas series by Kimberly Lewis. It is a fun, light-hearted and romantic story- with a generous serve of spice that really heats things up. Even though it is the third book in the series, it can be read as a standalone- but be prepared to find yourself intrigued enough that you will want to go in search of the other two book in the series, too.
I can always count on Ms. Lewis to entertain me- she has a way of enticing you further and further into her ...more
And I gotta say, this story made me want to go out and find a horse to pet and ride.

Oh boy oh boy! Where do I start? I'm going to skip my normal opening rant, lets jump in, shall we?
Right from the opening, Karlie's voice was clean, and it oozed confidence. When she was recanting her past, you can hear the resolve in her characters voice. She wanted Luke, and she wasn't going to stop until she had him. She was bold, sassy, and a perfect mix of cowgirl and girl ...more

The story Luke (The McKades of Texas #3) by Kimberly Lewis is a contemporary romance book. It has a wonderful mixture of horses, cowboys, and romance. Once I started reading this book I was drawn in and I didn’t want to put it down until I had finished the last page. I loved the characters of Karlie Kyle and Luke McKade. Karlie is a young woman who is good working with horses. She is beautiful, sassy, and a tomboy. She has always ha ...more

This is my first book by this author and I absolutely loved it!!

Luke has never wanted to settle down with one woman. Unlike his happily married siblings he doesn’t see the appeal to only being with one other person for the rest of your life. Even the beautiful and tempting all grown-up Karlie can’t tame him. Knowing the attraction is the ...more
As a proud native Texan, I can't help but adore that this book is set in the great state of TEXAS! <3
I am not the sort that thinks cowboys/country boys are very appealing. However, this book could definitely make me think twice about it. The author writes this romance in such a way that it is super easy to fall in love with Luke too. Then, once she has you super attached to this dreamy cowboy (just like Karlie), the author nearly tears your hear ...more

If you haven't listened to an audiobook before having the right narrator is extremely important. If it's the wrong narrator then it could end up making a well written book not as enjoyable which has happened to me in the past. I'm very happy to say that this was not the case this time.
Karlie comes home after she graduates from college and one of the ...more

Book 3 in the McKades of Texas series can absolutely be read as a stand-alone and the secondary characters with previous stories are well explained and there is never any confusion or feeling like you've stepped into a story mid-chapter.

This book has been added to my list of favorite romance reads! It’s the third book in the McKades of Texas series and my first book by this author! Having said that I can honestly say that it can be read as a standalone as there was so much detail I was able to jump right in. From the very first chapter I was hooked, I loved all of the detail, the characters both main and supporting and Luke made for a perfect book boyfriend. He’s handsome, charming, hardworking, roma ...more

"Not hard to get at all," Luke replied with a cocky grin. "Just hard to keep."
A smirk played at her mouth. "That sounds like a challenge.”
