Start your review of The Cowboy’s Second Chance Family (Wells Brothers #3)
This is a Cowboy Romance, and this is the third book in the Wells Brothers Series. I have read and review the other books in this series. This ones is my favorite one by far. This is a short book just over 100 pages, but there is so much packed in those pages. This is a fast pace well written book. I am so glad I picked up this series. This book is about Tucker Wells and Avery Collins finding their love for each other again. They dated in High School, but they broke up and both of them still lov ...more

I adore a good second chance romance, and this is a couple that badly needed to start over again. I liked the way the author gave them the opportunity to “reset” with Tucker’s head injury and amnesia. This story does contain a couple of themes that I don’t like as much in romance; I’m not going to go into that in any depth because at least one of them goes deep into spoiler territory. I loved Shanna. She is an element of pure joy in this book. Her parents, on the other hand, left me quite frustr ...more

Tucker is a knucklehead. He shows up on his former love's doorstep with amnesia and can't understand why she isn't thrilled. Avery was dumped by Tucker but left with a constant reminder of him, their daughter Shanna. I thought the chemistry was good between the two and Shanna was cute. The best part was the sign, an important connection from the past that's helps with the new healing of the present. It's a good read for all cowboy romance lovers. Thanks to NetGalley and Relay Publishing for the ...more

Brother Tucker is the hero of the third book in Leslie North's Wells Brothers Trilogy. This is a quick second chance romance.

A confused Tucker Wells appears on Avery Collins's front door in the middle of a snowstorm that is generating white out conditions. Thrown from his horse, he's suffering a pretty good bump on the head that has taken away the last ten years of his memory. He doesn't remember having broken up with Avery right after high school graduation. Avery has recently returned to town

I had not read the first two books in this series (The Rancher's City Girl and The Cowboy's Baby Agreement) so I read both of them quickly before I settled into The Cowboy's Second Chance Family. It's not totally necessary to read the others first, but those characters are mentioned a handful of times in this book so I'm glad I did.

Like the first two books in this Wells Brothers series, The Cowboy's Second Chance Family is a quick read. Each of them only took me about two hours each to read. I f

Liam had no one else to send out to check on the cattle, so Tucker offered, even though a snowstorm was imminent. The cows probably hadn’t gotten out of the pasture, but there was always a chance a part of the fence had been knocked down. Now that he was probably going to stay here on the ranch, he needed to do his share of the work. Suddenly his horse took a wrong step and he was thrown as everything around him went black. He was confused when he woke up. His horse was lame, so he walked until ...more
