The Tycoon (The Sons of Texas, #1) by Anna Jeffrey

When Drake Lockhart, wealthy ranching scion and Texas tycoon, sees a stunning redhead at a fancy ball, electricity sparks between them. After an intimate tryst in his bed the last thing he expects is for her to disappear in the middle of the night. Every minute spent with the vulnerable beauty has left him hungering for more. In an ironic twist of fate, he finds her, but all she wants from him is sex. Can he ever convince her she can trust him?

Shannon Piper was out of place at the ball. An intimate encounter with a man so far removed from her social hemisphere wasn’t on her agenda. He has a reputation for ruthlessness and is one of Texas Monthly’s most eligible bachelors, known for his history with women. Is a relationship based on just sex the way to protect her heart? Or is it the beginning of the most enduring love a girl with a sketchy past could ever know?

The Tycoon was an enjoyable story. I found the setting and socioeconomic setting compelling. Anna Jeffrey created interesting characters and family dynamics, but I think that stronger editing would have made The Tycoon sparkle. I thought that the main characters, Shannon and Drake, were engaging. Personally, I felt that Shannon was a stronger and more independent individual than Drake. I felt that Drake was actually a more vulnerable individual underneath all his personal success and wealth. I also enjoyed reading about their families. I do wish that the various subplots in The Tycoon were tighter. The multiple subplots sometimes detracted from the primary story about Shannon and Drake. Overall, I look forward to reading the next book in this series. P.S. This is the same review I submitted to GoodReads.

Ok first let me say I love this family, I have never read a book that contained 2 parents that were in such a teenage love saga before LOL. And when I say parents I mean the parents of the main character Drake. Let me back up and start with the 2 main characters Shannon and Drake are 2 people from opposite sides of the track, Shannon is trying hard to make a good life for herself as well as take care of her grammy. Drake is a rich Texas tycoon who comes from a bug family with big pockets. They meet at an event where Shannon is there looking to make work contacts and Drake is there with his toxic hateful girlfriend. They wind up having an unforgettable night that ends with Shannon giving a fake name and slipping out in the middle of the night. This story was a little long winded at times but I got that the author is setting up the rest of this series and for that I loved it.The characters are all great and who doesn't love a story with a great HOT cowboys (I mean even the dad in a HOT cowboy) wink wink Swoon worthy dad I LOVE IT LOL This was really great and I can not wait for the next installment I AM A FAN OF THIS SERIES AND WILL READ THE NEXT ONE!!!
