About the Author

Ruth Cardello was born the youngest of eleven children in a small city in northern Rhode Island.

Before turning her attention to writing, Ruth was an educator for twenty years, eleven of which she spent as a kindergarten teacher. She is the author of eight previous novels, including Bedding the Billionaire, which was a New York Times and USA Today bestseller. Tycoon Takedown follows Taken, Not Spurred as the second book in the Lone Star Burn series.

Ruth Cardello does it again. This series just gets better and better.

This book is about Charles Dery and Melanie Hanna. We have met Charles and Melanie in the first book Taken, Not Spurred. This book is one hard decision after another for the 2 main characters. I have loved Melanie since the first book and she says what is on her mind. I wasn't a huge fan of Charles from the first book but I have slowly warmed to him during this book. All of characters from the first book are here and loads more.

Charles and Melanie make decisions that affect them and everybody around them. New York and Texas are places I want to visit because of this book. Charles doesn't want a family, he just wants Melanie. Melanie wants Charles but has to put her son first.

Love this story!!!

I would recommend any of Ruth Cardello books.

An unmissable read, a go to author of choice, no blurb required meant this book was pre-ordered as soon as the links were released. Ruth Cardello just got better if that's possible! Book 2 in this new series takes us on Melanie and Charles journey, a few surprises along the way, the attraction, the family stories for both, their discovery of each other, it's a great story about love, family, taking risks and doing your best (includes cowboys - enough said). Can be read as a standalone, but read book 1 it'll make it even better. Highly recommended.

I'm already a fan of Ruth Cardello''s books and I was looking forward to this. I enjoyed it a lot.

Melanie travels from her Texan town to New York to track down the father of her child and tell him about his son. Charles is Melanie's best friends brother who asks him to look out for her friend while she is there and that is where the fun starts.

Charles and Melanie are both great characters with plenty of depth and I could connect easily with them. They were believable and had doubts and fears that I could connect with. The secondary characters were also good and added depth to the story.

The story itself is written well. The plot flows along nicely with lots of romance and hotness plus some pitfalls to overcome. I was immediately sucked in and invested with the characters and story. There were moments of laughter, more poignant parts and most other things in between. There was great chemistry between Charles and Melanie and I enjoyed reading as their romance blossomed.

I have read the first book in this series but I don't think it's required before you read this. It can easily be read as a standalone.

All in all this was a really good read that I enjoyed and would definitely recommend. I look forward to more great books from this author.

Once again Ruth has knocked my boots right off. I couldn't wait to get back to Texas in this heartwarming read and catch up with this wonderful cast of characters who has stolen my heart from book 1. This is the story of Melanie who is a single mom raising her son Jace and doing the best she can, however Jace starts to wonder about certain things and it leads her to New York. Charles thought he had everything and never forgave himself for an accident that transpired when he was younger that amounted to a devastating loss and put him on the path that he might have never chosen. For me this book was about rediscovering who you are and what you want out of life, knowing that things that happen in your past helps to shape you but doesn't define you. From the first page to the last was PHENOMENAL, hilarious characters, sizzling chemistry, and a uplifting storyline that made you want to never see it end. I can't wait to see what's in store next (Mason and David hopefully).

Done hiding and apologizing, Melanie Hanna heads to New York to correct a mistake from her past but her emotional trip takes an unexpected and sizzling detour in this riveting contemporary western romance. I was completely caught up in this story from the very beginning and I have to say that Charlie and Melanie captured my heart and I love his proposal (the one she answered). I am looking forward to reading the next one, I wonder if it will be David’s or maybe even Mason’s (him getting caught should be real interesting and fun).
4 ½ STARS

This is a nice romance with boy meets girl, they part, they can't forget each other, they meet again, cue romance, part for a while due to misunderstandings, HEA.
Charles is the hero, Melanie the heroine. He's rich, she couldn't care less. She's a strong female character who is learning that she's made mistakes in life and needs to grow. He has to learn to live and trust again.
All good fun.
Suitable for older readers due to content (sexual situations).
