He thought he was in control until she snuck into his heart…

Carter Hill walked away from a perfectly fine life and relationship…all for a career she’s chased since she was fourteen. Years and a Ph.D. later, she loves her job as a water rights consultant. At the same time, now that all her brothers are happily married, she’s lonely and wanting more. But the only man in her life is Logan – super serious, no sense of humor, and friend-zoned. Or is he? Perhaps a sexy, no-strings affair with a man more driven than she is could help her move on.

Logan Cartez doesn’t date, do relationships, or worry about commitment. He’s married to his job – making sure what destroyed his family ranch and their legacy doesn’t happen to others. When Carter propositions him, what began as a passionate and unforgettable night soon develops into more. Logan finds himself doing things he swore he never would, and the feisty, brilliant, blue-eyed rancher’s daughter has him thinking about so much more than work.

It’s always a bittersweet moment when a series I’ve enjoyed comes to a conclusion, and make no mistake The Hills of Texas has been an amazing series full of family drama, sexy moments, sizzling chemistry, and likable characters who will find a permanent home in your reading heart.  The men of the Hill family have found their happy ever after loves leaving Carter, the only daughter, to take the first steps toward her own happy ever after future.  A future with a friend who will become a lover but with issues of his own keeping him from letting anyone in.  Logan isn’t going to be the easiest hero but he’s definitely worth the effort to win his heart.  And one stubborn, feisty woman is about to show him what love can be like with the right woman… her.

Landing the Lawman is definitely of the friends to lovers trope, but it’s also a story of healing, of coming back from having your emotions torn apart to be able to trust in someone, love someone again.  I loved Carter and Logan’s story, it’s realistic with some bumps along the road but nothing insurmountable.  It’s always a treat to run into old book friends, and I expect to do just that in a final, wrap up the series story.  I’ve enjoyed this series very much and although sad to see it’s ending I’m also looking forward to what Kadit Scott brings us next.
