ARC REVIEW

The Ranger (The McAllister Brothers Book 3) by Julia Justiss

When Texas Ranger Brice McAllister spies a sexy woman in short shorts gardening in her backyard, he can’t help but flirt. She shuts him down hard, and Brice is astonished when he realizes this alluring woman is also the aloof and dowdy librarian—complete with thick-framed glasses and a shapeless dress—who helped him research land deeds earlier that day. He’s instantly intrigued and sets out to discover more—namely, why she’s clearly hiding herself.

She can’t attract attention…

After one side of her crime family is involved in her fiancé’s death, Maria Giordano puts half a continent between herself and her L.A. home and family. She moves to Whiskey River and reinvents herself as “Mary,” a serious and plain librarian. Her only indulgence is her garden and cooking with her neighbor’s young daughter. And then she meets Brice.

Maria has every reason to avoid and resent a man with a badge, but when she needs protection, the last man she thinks she can trust is the first one she turns to.

The Ranger (The McAllister Brothers Book 3) by Julia Justiss

My Review

Book three in this series. You don’t need to read the previous two stories, they all stand on their own. But we do have an ongoing story from the previous books (but not really necessary to read them as we are given a brief summary of what went on)

Brice is the youngest and the last single McAllister brother. Home whilst he waits to testify in a case he was working, he’s a Texas Ranger, and loves the job. And while Brice is visiting his brothers he’s going to look into a few things for his brothers. He has no intention of settling down on the ranch with his brothers, well that is until he meets a frosty young librarian…..

Maria now goes by the name of Mary. She’s keeping a low profile. She’s hiding from her family! Why? Well it’s a long story, and it’s one she’s not willing to share.

Brice has to try hard to win her trust, and it’s not easy, there are many times she’s wants to bolt. But when danger comes knocking on her door, Brice is the only one she thinks to turn too!

I have to admit, I probably liked this one better than the last two. Brice was just so patient with her. I also liked how Mary was around her neighbour and young daughter. The suspense was pretty good too, you know someone or something is going to happen to Mary. It was great catching up with his brothers and their lives.

A Slow burn romance that focuses on the interaction of two people, rather than the physical side of this relationship. And the story holds up pretty well without too much smut coming into play.

Can Mary trust Brice enough to tell him of her past?

Your going to have to read the book to find out😉
