“Read Claudia Connor for a consistently raw and emotional love story,” recommends Carly Phillips. Now the swoon-worthy McKinney Brothers series from this bestselling author continues as JT, the youngest of the trio, discovers that only love can make him whole.
She’s fighting for control. . . . Paige Roberts learned to fend for herself growing up. Now she’s doing everything possible to give her daughter, Casey, the stability she never had. But when the vivacious five-year-old decides she’s done wearing her prosthesis, Paige faces her toughest challenge yet: trusting a handsome, brooding stranger who simply wants to help.
He’s struggling to connect. . . . JT McKinney lost more than his leg in a car accident that stole his dreams of pro football. Eight years later, he’s made a new life for himself far away from his old one. His business is developing cutting-edge prosthetics and he’s more than happy to turn his attention to machines instead of people. Still, he can’t shake the feeling that something’s missing.
Will they take a chance on love? . . . When JT gets the chance to help Paige’s daughter, he takes it. He never planned on the two of them tearing down his walls or teaching him to believe in himself again. Paige might not believe in happily ever afters, but JT wants more than anything to be her prince. They’ll both have to let go of the past if they want a future.

If you like stories that focus on family and feels- Claudia Connor’s The McKinney Brothers series is one you should check out. I’ve read all three and each have something special about them. They’re heartwarming, fun and sexy stories. Worth It All is JT’s story. JT or Jake is the baby of the McKinney family and I was looking forward to his story most of all. It didn’t disappoint. It’s my favorite one to date.

Jake was in an accident when he was 19 that changed his life forever. Not only did it take one if his legs, it took a lot more than that emotionally. He’s not been in a relationship since. Then he meets Paige. A waitress who he’s enamored with right when he meets her. He finds out early on that Paige has a daughter named Casey who also has an amputation. She’s starting kindergarten and having trouble with her prosthetic so JT offers to help. Jake and Paige quickly develop feelings for one another, but Paige isn’t quick to act on them. She was burned by Casey’s dad and doesn’t want to go down that road again. But there is something about Jake…

Paige and Jake were great together. I truly loved them both. But my favorite part of this book- my absolute favorite character was Casey. She has to be the most adorable child I have ever read about. I loved her relationship with Jake and all her little quips. She and Jake had this immediate bond and connection that not just anyone could have with her. When she said that Jake was like her (with the leg) and they were best friends… gah! Brought me to tears every time. But the good kind of tears, I promise! Casey and Paige fit right in with the huge McKinney clan. Not only that but they, in a way, brought Jake back to the family fold. It was beautiful to see.

Worth it All is one of those books that’s light on the angst (it doesn’t need all that angst- it’s a strong story on its own) high on the swoon and sweet with a moderate amount of steam. More than anything, this story had lots of heart. I’ve enjoyed every book from this author and I’m looking forward to more stories from her! Don’t think I’ve forgotten about those Walker brothers from book 2… I’m hoping eventually they’ll get a series, too!
