Billionaire inventor Levi Chapman prefers his old friends and his small Texas hometown to nightlife on the celebrity circuit. Only one woman ever touched his heart—architect Dana DeLong. But despite the passion between them, Dana’s drive to succeed at her job in the city, a place that drains his soul, broke them apart. After Dana returns to Whiskey River for a project, they manage to avoid each other. But when Levi’s Green Beret brother is injured in combat, Levi’s need to care for him compels him to turn to Dana.
She broke his heart
A job remodeling Devil’s Rock airport lures Dana DeLong back to Whiskey River, home of the lover she never got over. Though they mutually decided to remain apart, when Levi asks her to tap her specialty, designing accessible housing, to help his disabled veteran brother, she can’t refuse. Passion still burns bright between them and soon they succumb to their desires.
Life has changed them both, but is the love they share now enough to overcome the differences that drove them apart?
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 eachother. 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 Iusually 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.
