Texas Ranger Jeremiah ‘Tuck’ Tucker has
lived a life knowing the love of wonderful parents and the
uncertainty of not knowing where he came from. He has decided
he will only adopt children in need and not have any of his
Grace Whitten has spent her life making
her father happy. After becoming a lawyer and head of the
family law firm to make him happy, she realizes something. It
is not enough. She needs more. If only she could figure out
what she wants/needs.
One day, Tuck finds Brady, a neglected
two-year-old boy. When he decides to adopt him and finds out
that Grace is representing a couple that also want custody,
their relationship goes to a new level.
Adopted Son tugs at the
heartstrings. It looks at the subject of how vulnerable
children can be and the lengths that are needed to bring said
children to a safer place. Both Tuck and Grace develop and
grow wonderfully during the story. The one thing I did not
like about Adopted Son was that Ms. Warren
specifies how Tuck does not want children of his own. And at
the end of the book, he does a 180 without giving any new
information, which was very inconsistent.
