Tucker McBride was absolutely one of the best male leads that I've read in a long time. He was patient, kind, loving, honest and strong in his beliefs about himself and life. Gillian was a mess from the beginning. I confess that she got on my nerves several times throughout the story. With a strong plot ...more
I was lucky enough to receive an advance reader copy of this book. Happily, that had no impact on how I feel about the book.

I love going back to these cousins. The way the thoughts and the narration it makes me laugh on how this was made.
I love how the story of these two began to unravel. The hurdles that Gillian had to go through and how Trucker overcomes them, makes each page interesting.
Can't wait for Boone's book!

I was given this book for an honest review by Wicked Reads.

The time jumps. The book begins in the Fall and ends in Summer(-ish?). For a story that takes place in a big span of time (considering that most romances take place in 2-3 months), I felt like the story and the characters had little development. Gillian is supposed to develop as a character, find her path once again and yet I felt like she didn't get that. She is only a ...more

I have to admit, I am a fan of Emily March's Eternity Springs books, so I knew what to expect (sort of) when I started reading this book. I like the fact that when you are reading an Emily March book, you are getting romance - actual romance and not steamy sex scenes with too many graphic details. I like the fact that she leaves a bit to the imagination, and this book is no exception.
Tucker is the second book in The McBrides of Texas series and it was as enjoyable as the first book was!
