Love at Any Cost is sure to sweep you off your feet!
After a tearful goodbye to the O'Connors, I was ready to introduce myself to the McClares. And boy are they a fun group! Moving away from Boston to the West Coast of San Fransisco, was a nice change of scenery. Truthfully, of the available cities for Lessman to choose, I'm glad she chose the San Fransisco. It really adds something to the flair of the time and the characters. :-)
Cassidy McClare is one heartbroken Texan you don't want to mess with. Having decided she's through with "pretty boy polecats", she wasn't prepared to meet Jamie MacKenna, her cousins' best friend. I felt her emotional transition shift from Mark to Jamie was paced well, and I liked how she clung to God when heartbreak happened again. She's funny, full of spunk, and she has a faith that while it isn't perfect, it is a rock Cassie can hold on to at the turn of the tide.
As much as I tried, I had a rough go of it trying to like Jamie. One minute he's a likable man doing everything in his power for his mother and sister and the next he's kissing Cassie senseless. I only really came to like him as the book drew to a close.
I conclusion, Lessman returns with a new family to love, passionate love interests, a new city to behold, and great writing. I look forward very much to Dare to Love!
I received this book from Revell in return for an honest review of my opinions. Thanks!

He's looking to take care of his family. She's looking to take care of her heart.
Trouble is . . . love's looking to take care of them both.
Cassidy McClare is a spunky Texas oil heiress without a fortune who would just as soon hogtie a man as look at him. Jilted by a fortune hunter, Cassidy travels west hoping a summer visit with her wealthy cousins in San Francisco will help her forget her heartache. But no sooner is she settled in beautiful California than Jamie McKenna, a handsome pauper looking to marry well, captures her heart. Can love prevail when Jamie discovers that Cassidy is poorer than he is? And can Cassidy ever learn to fully trust her heart to a man?
