Review:

This was such a sweet second chance romance. We got our first glimpse of Levi and Dana in Rebel Pilot, Texas, Doctor the first book in this series of stand-alones.  Thankfully, this book does reads well as a stand alone.  I adored the first book in this series but couldn’t seem to find the time to read the second one. When the third book arrived, I had to read it. I was able to get into the swing of things without much confusion.

Levi and Dana have explosive chemistry. The kind of chemistry that has them out of breath and between the sheets before they can have a full conversation. While that’s wonderful in a fling, they learnt the hard way that communication is essential to a successful long-term relationship. We watch as they try valiantly to fight their attraction to each other. They take to distracting themselves with work, and managed to stay apart for much longer than I wanted them too.

I appreciated the story line around Levi’s brother, Asher, who returned from combat with serious injuries. His story added a lot to the book. The dog was amazing, I love, love, love when authors put animals in books.

I’ll be honest, I’m struggling with this one. No Ordinary Texas Billionaire was a solid read, it followed the formula and offered everything I look for in a contemporary romance title. It was good, don’t get me wrong there, I enjoyed myself while I was reading. But there was something missing, and I can’t quite put my finger on it. I guess I just didn’t connect with the characters as well as I usually do.

Anyway, I would recommend this book to anyone looking for a weekend read. The story flowed well and the conflict and passion between Levi and Dana seemed realistic.

If you enjoy second chance romances you might also be interested in Tanner’s Promise or Holding On.

Tropes:

Billionaire, CEO, nice guy hero, small town, second chance, angsty, returning home,

Sweet, contemporary romance

    I know what you mean, sometimes it just doesn’t click even though you can’t really put your finger on it. Nothing is really wrong with the book and it seems to have done everything right. But maybe that’s what being a romance reader is all about. You either fall in love with the characters or you don’t 🙂
