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 Mexico 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 wanted from a Texas series book.
So what did I think?
I’ve always had a soft spot for Jack and Riley, and this series. It’s pure escapism. I just pick up the book and get lost in the lives of these men and their families.
Texas Fall has a strong story line for Jack and Riley, but also gives glimpses in to the lives of the other people in this extended family. There is drama and the ups and downs of everyday life.
I like that the we see the every day happenings of the family. It’s not all perfect and this lends a level of realism to the story. But there are enough dramatic elements to keep the story barreling along.
The other thing that appeals to me, is that these two strong family men, are still sexy as hell!
I had a couple of favourite parts in this story.
Firstly (minor spoiler ahead) I loved the way Max was included in Eden’s wedding plan by having a Thomas (the tank engine) themed wedding cake. What a wonderful way to include a little boy who would be too afraid of the chaos of a wedding to be included any other way.
Secondly, the gorgeous and funny romantic lines.
“Jeez, Jack,” he murmured. “And you’re here in my heart.”
Jack nuzzled Riley’s neck with his nose, then pressed a kiss to Riley’s skin right at the pulse point in his throat.
Then he said something hat was so Jack, so right, so perfect. “I think we need to fuck like rabbits before we turn into girls.”
Thanks for another great story, RJ. 5 stars all the way!
