In Texas Wedding there is a moment towards the end that will make sense if you read the book. However, I wanted you to see what five characters thought of the main couple Jack and Riley, and Sean decided to help by interviewing them.
Texas Wedding is only possible because SCOTUS supported same sex marriage. Thank you SCOTUS. Love is love.
Robbie took the offered seat. If he had a choice he wouldn’t be here at all. The idea of talking about himself or opening up his heart for any reason scared the shit out him.
“You okay?” Sean asked.
How did he answer that loaded question? Not for the first time he wished Eli was in here with him.
“Yeah,” Robbie lied instead.
“And you’re okay with this interview?”
“It was all explained, go for it.”
“I just want your thoughts about Riley and Jack.”
Robbie had spent the last few days wondering what the hell to say when it came to his turn in front of the camera.
“Jack’s a good boss,” he began. Tick one in the list of things he was going to say. “And he loves horses. He’s a cowboy in his heart.” That sounded a lot more flowery than he’d intended.
Sean nodded his approval. “Like you,” he said, and pressed a hand to his chest. “A cowboy inside here.”
“Yeah. And Riley, him and Jack are happy.” Robbie shifted uncomfortably in his chair. Since falling in love with Eli things had changed in his life. He could admit to having emotions, he could be honest and let some of those sentiments free. He just didn’t want to say the wrong thing and ruin this whole damn video.
“What about their family. Tell me about them.”
Robbie brightened. Now that he could do. “Their eldest, Hayley, she’s a sweetheart, and the twins, Connor and Lexie, they’re so alike in some ways and so different in others. I remember when the twins were born, and when Max moved to live here. Max has autism; he’s a special kid, and Jack and Riley are the best parents.”
Sean sat back in his chair. “So do you have a message for the viewers of this film?”
“That Jack and Riley, and the kids, are a family.”
Sean tilted his head, clearly expecting more.
Robbie cleared his throat. “What else do I need to say. Family is everything and there is a whole lot of love in that house. Never seen two men more in love, and they love their kids, and they’ll be together forever.”
That was a lot more flowery than he’d thought he’d manage.
“Thank you,” Sean said.
“Am I done now?” Robbie was once more incredibly uncomfortable. Eli was going to have a field day with this when he saw it. Never seen two men more in love? What the hell made him say that? When he only had to see him and Eli in the mirror to see the same love.
Robbie and Eli’s story begins in Texas Heat
With the life changing prospect of a yes vote from SCOTUS on the issue of same sex marriage, Riley and Jack realise they have decisions to make. Add in some distressing family news and the very real possibility that old secrets may resurface, and this last book in the Texas series pulls together as many threads as the boys can manage to handle.
But through all the ups and the downs, children, family events, laughter, and tears, there is nothing as special as the forever love between these two men.

Book 1 – The Heart of Texas
Book 2 – Texas Winter
Book 3 – Texas Heat
Book 4 – Texas Family
Book 5 – Texas Christmas
