R.J. Scott

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.

But the lull comes before the storm.

Riley and his new assistant travel to Laredo, and across the border into Nuevo León 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.

Excerpt

“You can’t hide the whole night,” Riley said from behind him. Jack turned to face his husband, leaning back against the stable door and waiting for the lecture. Riley was happy as a pig in shit right in the middle of it all: juggling babies, catering, socializing, and hell, everything that Jack was avoiding right about now. “People asked where you were,” Riley added.

Riley sure looked good tonight, his blond hair just this side of bed-head spiky, his long legs in black pants, the dark green shirt so perfect against his warm skin tones, and his hazel eyes sparkling with enthusiasm for life. Sexy. Very sexy, all toned and slim and hard and hot. Jack cleared the thoughts of kissing the life out of Riley from his head. He’d need all his faculties to deal with Riley when Riley wanted him to go back inside and host the party.

Anyway, he was suspicious that anyone really worried where he’d gone. “Who asked?”

Riley stepped right up into his space, close enough so that Jack could inhale the scent of his man. The combination of familiar citrus was underscored by deeper notes of mulled spices from the kitchen and some punch concoction Eden had made.

“Actually, no one asked,” Riley admitted. “Josh mentioned that he was impressed you’d lasted an hour.”

Jack huffed a laugh. He was surprised his brother hadn’t come out and hidden right next to him. Seemed that enjoying socializing skipped the male Campbell line entirely.

“So,” Jack began slowly. “What are you doing out here?”

Riley placed his hands on Jack’s hips, then slid his fingers through belt loops to tug Jack away from the door and flush up to him.

“I was asking myself,” he explained, “just where would my husband be when it’s only ten at night and he was looking for peace. I tried everywhere.” He pressed a gentle kiss to Jack’s lips, then smiled down at him, that few inches in height he had just enough to force Jack to lean his head back a little. “Actually that’s a lie. I looked in the twins’ room, checked in on Max, then came here.”

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.

Review: This story is a part of a series and must be read in order. Jack and Riley have settled into a quieter family life, Jack has his hopes of opening an equine therapy school and Riley is focused on CH Consulting but they both appreciate their family time, and their barn time. The extended family on Double D Ranch pull together as Liam’s abuser goes to court, Darren and Vaughn come out in support and their relationship has some difficulties. Riley faces trouble when his exploration team falls foul of the Cartel/rebels in Neuvo Laredo and Jack faces the terrifying revelation that there is nothing he can do, but the aftereffects for Riley are as terrifying as the experience.

This is another superb Campbell-Hayes story that is a great addition to the Texas series. Riley and Jack are as in love as ever, they have a wonderful family and great friends. They both value their family but they are both also focused on their plans for their work, Jack on the equine therapy school he is building and Riley on CH Consulting as it gets bigger. We see both men making time for themselves and their families even as they push forward with their plans, but Riley and his new manager find themselves in trouble and it shakes Riley up. But that isn’t just what this story is about, we see the deeper ties that have been forged with the staff at Double D Ranch, we see the support that is offered to Liam as he faces taking the stand and we see how Jack takes Vaughn and Darren in.

I loved this story and the catching up we did with the characters from previous stories, it was lovely to see loose ends tied off and well-earned peace being given to those who deserve it. There’s some excitement thrown in as Riley faces danger but it’s the aftereffects that stuck with me, the way that Jack tried to offer comfort, how Riley dealt with it and then the way that Sean managed to break through to Riley. The Double D is a family and it really shines through in Texas Fall, I can’t tell you how much I enjoyed watching this family come together in support, comfort, happiness and joy. But I will have to admit disquiet over Hayley because as a mother her words at her age had my hackles rising and if Logan was my nephew I’d have had him halfway across the country and would never let that girl near him, and seriously if those roles had been reversed every warning light would have been sent up… it’s not cute, it’s disturbing.

The most important thing I can tell you all is that this series has to be read in order, nearly everyone we meet in this story we have met previously in the other Texas stories and they have had their own stories told. Eli and Robbie, Liam and Marcus, Sean and Eden, Vaughn and Darren (although we see the progression of their story here), we remember how little Max came into Jack and Riley’s lives and we see how far he has come, we see how the twins are doing and how Jack and Riley are coping with them.  

I recommend this to those who love families, a touch of danger, settling the past, great characters, a wonderful story and a very happy ending.
