Reviewed by Tanya




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 moving.

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.
