Product Description

Book 2 of the Texas Soul series.

Spurned by his heart’s desire, Riley’s aching for a fight, and he finds one with Connor, a sexy Texas lawman. Attraction fires between them, but Riley walks away, ignoring the lust between he and Connor...Until weeks later he’s caught trespassing on Connor’s new property--Naked.

Connor’s tempted to arrest the audacious naked man in his watering hole until he realizes it’s Riley. Lust muddles Connor’s logic and soon he finds himself on a path rife with temptations. Passion twists Connor inside out leading him to share one of his deepest secrets. Still Riley’s hiding something and the lack of mutual trust may end their relationship.

Then there’s the Lane factor. Riley’s ex leaves Connor feeling threatened. Riley swears it’s over, but something doesn’t sit right and Connor needs resolve. Coming to terms with their attraction means submitting to the fears haunting Connor and Riley before they can grasp the love that brought them together.

The most annoying thing about this novel is the overtop , slightly ridicioulous scenarios the writer seems to have an unecessary affection for.....why would you have apha , mucho men who are ridiculously sexy and decide to turn them into screaming , immature jealous queens who seem to be the most insecure men l've certainly ever its best it was a fab read , the sex is just out of this world soon as you get into a lovely rhythm ...BAM ..another crazy thing happens.....annoying...l would recommend as it is a great read...brace yourself for some soap opera

3.0 out of 5 stars Went off the rails! SPOILER ALERT 8 Dec 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was mostly thru this book when I realised I truly did not understand where the writer was going with Riley and Connor romance. For me it seemed that Connor was just a poor substitute/stand in for the true love of Riley's life who is really Lane. When it comes to the sex in these books normally their romantic interest (Connor) would not play second fiddle to a former love interest but this what happens when Riley finally gets to be with Lane. As written "Connor is good'" but Lane is the stuff of dreams apparently for Riley when it comes to sex! Should it not be the reverse and sex is okay with Lane but the hottest kind of dream come true sex be with Connor? Whatever...

3.0 out of 5 stars texas hard 30 Sep 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The story was fine but the English was bad, this author needs to learn that adding "ed" to words is no way to make the tense correct "weaved through the crowd" is correctly " wove through the crowd". There were issues with continuity and also with spelling mistakes which are so obvious. A final reread by someone else than the author could have helped.

4.0 out of 5 stars Drama, romance, sex... a bit like a soap opera but fun! 27 Sep 2013
By Nic - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Note: This review is for the series and as such, does not contain a lot of detail about the plot because it would be way too spoilerish! If you want to know more about the specifics of each book, check out the blurbs.

The Texas Soul series consists of six books which I pretty much read back to back.

The series starts with Texas Rough which focuses on one couple, Lane and Gresham, and is largely set on Gresh's family ranch where Lane is the foreman. It also introduces another main character, Riley, who falls hard and fast for Lane. This first book is fast moving with lots of multiple storylines. There are themes of coming out and comfort/hurt with large amounts of drama and even larger amounts of sex!

The second book, Texas Hard, focuses more on Riley as he deals with his feelings for Lane but meets and falls for Connor who is a Texas Ranger. This story brings in some elements of bondage as Riley takes a more dominant role in his relationship with Connor. Falling in love happens so quickly, as in the first book, that it is hard to believe that Riley really knows his own heart and it is amazing how open these men are in discussing their feelings! Once again, lots of drama, largely driven by insane amounts of jealousy as the story and relationships get complicated. I liked the story but did find the edition of the book I was reading had some annoying editing/spelling issues. There was also reference to speaking "Brazilian" in Brazil. I thought they spoke Portuguese.

Texas Twist sees things get even more complicated. We are introduced to a new romance as Connor's Texas Ranger partner moves to the ranch to recover from the trauma of his abduction. He falls for Sterling, one of the ranch hands. Sterling finally acknowledges he may be gay as he has such as strong reaction to Erick. The believability is a bit lacking as his actions dont seem those of a relucant gay man. He is pretty physical with Erick, demonstrative and once again discussing feelings. This new relationship is not the primary focus of the book. The Lane/Gresh/Riley/Connor relationship plays a really key role in this book.

The soap opera feel continues as Jung-Hwa "Jump" joins the story in Texas Branded. Jump comes to the ranch in search of his father. He not only finds family but finds love with the local deputy. The love in the story is sweet and gushy with poetic language and once again this couple are very open with their emotions, articulating their feelings for each other. The relationship development also continues the theme of fast, fast, fast - love and proposals all happening really quickly. The relationships of all the previous couples continue to weave in and out of the book and things really ramp up with a cliffhanger ending! Luckily I didn't have to wait and could launch into the next book straight away. If I'd read this book when it was first released and had to wait for the next book I would have been really annoyed as I don't have the patience for this kind of thing!

Texas Desire is the fifth book in the series and the drama hit new heights. Lots of heartbreak and angst, hospitals and deathbeds, emotional declarations, rejection, pain and loss. The new couple, Kip and Jamie, play a role but largely take a backseat to the more emotional story line being played out between the original four characters.

And finally, Texas Legacy concludes the story. Once again, there is very much a soap opera feel to the story with the overlapping stories of each of the characters. There is lots of heartbreak but also happiness as new love is found and families started. It was nice to see the final conclusion and know what happens to each of the couples. The epilogue jumps ahead ten years and provides closure. My main issue with this final book was the resolution of the story line introduced in the prologue. The prologue deals with the previously unknown and unrelated Wild Bluff Ranch and then the character from the prologue turns up later in the book in a relatively stand alone fashion with a story line that is unresolved. I now understand from the author's blog that this will be a spin off series but when I first ended the book the inclusion of the story line seemed a complete mystery to me.

So overall I actually enjoyed the series. It was pure escapism and really over the top at times. I have mentioned a soap opera feel but I think I must have been in the mood for reading something like this and I quite enjoyed the drama, the romance and the complications. Probably my main complaint (not that it is really a complaint as such) was that it was too full of sex. There seemed to be sex on every second page! The guys just seemed to alternate between sharing deep emotions and then doing each other.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cowboys and Texas angers? 24 Feb 2013
By cathy - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
iley is leaving Lane and Gresh's commitment ceremony, his emotions raw. He runs upon an accident and stops to help being a doctor. He has a confrontation with the lawman there, not only does he want to hit him but to ...well other things to him too. A month or so later Riley is taking a dip in the pond next to his property when a man confronts him. It is Connor the Texas Ranger; he hasn't been quite able to get off his mind. Things lead from confrontation again to riley getting to... well what he wanted the last time. Things move very fast for both men but both schedules and pasts get in the way. Are Riley and Conner a match made in heaven? Are their busy jobs too much for a relationship? What about Lane and his hold on Riley? Who is Erick? Believe me if you like twists and turns and super-hot mansex you will want to buy this and find out!

I am such a big fan Of Sara York and especially this Texas Soul Series. I haven't been reading too many westerns until this, now I am so hooked. I love the modern day setting, with realistic modern cowboys. This book was even better than the first of the series, and I couldn't have imagined that happening as the first was awesome.
Omg this was so fast paced so many twists and turns, all the characters these and the ones from the first book are so wonderful and exciting. There is nothing else I can say but how good this book is. It made me laugh, it made me smile, it made me gasp, made me say OH My gosh so many times!! I am on pins and needles for the third. And fourth and hope there's more!

Recommendations: I highly recommend this book to everyone that loves a good M/M romance. Especially if you like cowboys, Texas Rangers (law enforcement not the ball team), twists and turns, interracial coupling, super ,super down and dirty mansex. Did I say hot cowboys and hot mansex?

Spoiler alert

The main character's are underdeveloped and the undercurrent of lush between the 2 set of couple's is gray at best in the next book this author will make R the bad guy.
