Book Blurb

Jack is focusing on building an equine therapy school for children with special needs and works hard along side his normal horse training and breeding program. He and Riley have settled into a softer, quieter, kind of family life, but that doesn't stop them using the barn with the door to the fullest!

But the lull comes before the storm.

Riley and his new assistant travel to Laredo, and across the border into Neuvo Laredo as part of an exploratory team and things very quickly go to hell. Riley is caught in some serious Cartel problems and suddenly everything Jack holds dear is threatened.

Add in Vaughn and Darren's story, revisiting Robbie, Eli, Liam and Marcus, alongside Sean and Eden and the wedding that never was, and this story promises you everything you want from a Texas series book.

 

Book Review

Another fun and exciting Texas book by RJ Scott – count me in! I thought I’d already read this one, so imagine my surprise, immediately followed by delight, when I discovered I had one more to go before the final volume, ‘Texas Wedding’.  Jack and Riley are at their best, their family is growing, and if it weren’t for the dratted need to deal with business – oil for Riley and cowboy stuff for Jack – I am sure these two would have spent the entire book in the barn! Not that I would have minded… much. However, after the opening chapter they return to “real life” with their four kids, various family members, and assorted cowboy couples. Marcus and Liam are back, with Liam having to deal with being a witness in the court case against his abuser, and there is a new couple as well, Darren and Vaughn.

Riley is deep into his oil consulting business, and is so busy he is forced to hire an assistant. He is hoping that will give him more time with Jack and the kids, but he has to travel to Mexico first on a project. When his life is threatened, Jack thinks the world has ended, but even once Riley is back, the problems are far from over. Their relationship is severely tested, and that added a lot of tension to this book. Jack’s focus on the equine therapy school, while a lot of work, provides a welcome and interesting counterpoint to all the heavy emotional issues around Riley.

Eli and Robbie have become a solid couple, and Marcus beautifully supports Liam through the drama of the court case. I loved finding out more about Darren, the abuser’s brother and the man to help Liam run away. He is completely unlike his brother, and becomes a linchpin in making sure justice is done. His partner Vaughn is yet another hot cowboy, and I loved seeing these two come together despite their issues.

What an exciting installment in the Campbell-Hayes saga! It is every bit as entertaining, suspenseful, and hot as previous books, and I enjoyed reading it immensely.  If you like the Campbell-Hayes family and want to find out what's going on in their lives, if you enjoy the combination of a soap opera and an action/adventure, and if you're looking for a read that has family, new love, lots of heat and love between loving husbands, and the beautiful setting of a ranch in the heart of Texas, don’t miss this book. I'm already dreading reading the last installment as much as I am looking forward to it.
