Review: Love Under Two Honchos

Book five in the Lusty, Texas Collection. Review originally posted at Fallen Angel Reviews.

Love Under Two Honchos
Cara Covington

Josh and Alex Benedict are determined to find their own wife, without the help of their meddling grandmother. They devise a logical plan, the Legacy Project, to find a woman based on intelligence and a number of other qualities.

Penelope Primrose is hired by their grandmother to help with the environmental footprint the oil company leaves. An instant attraction to the brothers, Josh and Alex, is a not unwelcome surprise that she embraces.  When she begins to fall for them, she discovers the truth about the Legacy Project. Will she leave them before they can convince her that she is the one for them?
In this installment in the Lusty, Texas Collection we finally get to meet the infamous Kate Benedict, aka Grandma Kate.  She is the matriarch of the family and matchmaker extraordinaire. Ms. Covington also introduces us to the delightful Penelope Primrose. (I just LOVE that name.) As always we get a satisfying look at the various characters we have already met.  There is a wonderful family dynamic that is prevalent throughout the entire series. It is one of the things I adore about the whole series.  That, and the friendships that are detailed, are two of the many reasons I keep coming back.  With each new book, Ms. Covington continues to demonstrate the firm grasp she has on the intricacies of such relationships and it enriches the reading experience.
I enjoyed the aspect of Josh and Alex being “nerds”.  It showed in the way the characters were written and the way they spoke. Of course they were still bad ass alpha males, as are all the men in Lusty, Texas. But I got quite a giggle over how clueless they were with the Legacy Project.  I totally predicted that would not end well, and it definitely didn’t. For being alpha males, they didn’t have a clue one on how to deal with women and I had several good laughs over that. All in all, this book was another supremely enjoyable chapter in the Lusty, Texas Collection.
