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.
Sentimental, introspective, intrigue and love~ everything I expected from R.J. Scott’s newest edition to her Texas series, Texas Fall. No one writes a loving, well-rounded realistic family like Ms. Scott, and Texas Fall did not disappoint.
Jack and Riley, their kids, family and extended family ingratiated themselves once again into my heart. It’s no secret; my favorite couple has always been cowboy Jack and his het-boy Riley. And they always will be.
In Texas Fall, Riley came face to face with death and the prospect of losing his life and everything he held dear~ Jack and their children. A turn of events led Riley and his new employee back home, albeit with scars. Scars that kept Riley immobilized for a time and riddled with nightmares, leaving Jack helpless and having to take matters into his own hands~ Jack-style.
Ms. Scott always adds a sense of realism with her stories. From building their businesses to raising children, this macho couple was as loving as any two parents could be. Raising a teenager, a young child with autism and twins was not without difficulties and Ms. Scott never sugar coated the challenges. This characterization makes her books flawless.
The chemistry forged between Jack and Riley transcended any and all physical contact~ Jack and Riley are the air each other breathes. The essence of their souls, and add in a strong sense of family values and Texas Falls was the complete package.
The epilogue had me choked and teary-eyed~ Ms. Scott, what you do to me!
Texas Fall delivered beautiful dialogue, meaningful characters and a love of self and family.
