Izzy has always felt as if she didn’t
belong. She is the one Titan sister who seems to live life
outside of normal boundaries, and is seen as the family
daredevil. Well her latest job, underwater welder on an
oilrig, leaves her partially blinded when the rig she is on
blows up. Now her sisters are fearful that she is giving
up on her life. She has an opportunity to have vision
saving surgery but not only will she not even consider it,
she has taken to sitting in her temporary room and not
The sisters do the only thing they can
think of, hire Nick to help her learn to live with her
vision, or decide to have the surgery. Nick is a no
nonsense ranch owner who harbors his own secrets. One of
which could tear apart his and Izzy’s budding romance. When
he keeps the secret and the two fall in love, in spite of
their stubbornness not to, will his secret tear them apart?
I was anxious to read Izzy’s story,
Straight From The Hip, but was a bit disappointed
by it. I personally found Izzy to be a bit of a spoiled
brat, which I didn’t get from the earlier books and Nick to
be a jerk. But once I got past that I thoroughly enjoyed
the story and devoured it rather quickly. As usual Ms.
Mallery writes a story that pulls you in and won’t let you
go, and makes you want the next book in the series
“yesterday”. I look forward to the release of “Hot On Her
Heels”, with the honorary “Titan Sister”.
Note: Straight From The Hip
is the third in the “Lone Star Sisters” stories but could
easily be read as a standalone story.
