Title: Texas Wedding (Texas: Book Seven)

Author: RJ Scott

Publisher: Love Lane Books

Pages/Word Count: 216 Pages

At a Glance: A fantastic and emotional conclusion to Jack and Riley’s story.

Reviewed By: Angel

Blurb: Faced 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.

Review:  When you want to learn to read, you start with the ABCs. When you want to learn to sing, you start off with Do, Re, and Mi. When you want to enjoy a fantastically well written, fully fleshed out story, then you read RJ Scott’s Texas Series.

I mainlined this series just to read this final book. It took me two days to read through all seven books, and I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of each and every story. Thank you, RJ Scott, for this series. I loved every word of it. I will miss Jack and Riley and all of their ever-growing family. Even with the teaser of another series set in this verse, Texas Wedding is the ending of Jack and Riley’s story, but that seems a short and sad way to say it. This book was so much more.

Jack and Riley’s story is a love affair that spans five years, and it has enough drama, romance, sex, love, realism and a happy ending in each book to appeal to everyone. I think that you can’t speak about one book without talking about them all, because they are that connected, but each is a standalone greatly enriched by each sequel.

The SCOTUS decision, which spurred this book’s creation, was just as emotional to read here as it was to see it in the newspaper headlines. I love that Scott had the characters react differently to the decision because, once again, realism in fiction is a wonderful thing.

Seven books and not once did I get tired or bored with Jack and Riley. I literally fell in love with just about everyone involved. I hated the bad guys with as much passion as I had love for the good guys. Each experience these two MCs had happen to them felt real to me, and the characters dealt with it realistically. The secondary and side characters were just as formed and detailed as the MCs.

This trend lasted throughout the series, and it was excellent to have the characters respond like real people. Because, in a way, Jack and Riley are real. They are every couple that deals with their jobs not being conducive with being a couple, but they make it work. They are parents that get frustrated with their children, but they do their damnedest to make certain those same children have everything they need. They have tragic things happen to them, in spite of having money, and they still work through their problems one day at a time.

Jack and Riley love just like everyone else, no matter their gender or orientation. Which I think is how it should be. Their relationship didn’t need the justification of the SCOTUS decision, but it was enhanced because of it.

Cover Reveal and Giveaway: Texas Wedding by RJ Scott

Texas Wedding v2

Thank you for hosting me guys for this last minute special reveal of new cover art.

I promised readers something. I said, the moment same sex marriage was legal in Texas, I would write the final book in the Texas series; Texas Wedding. The minute I heard about the SCOTUS decision, I started planning the book. Today is the first day you get to see the final artwork from the awesome Meredith Russell for the new book.

Out at the end of September, Texas Wedding visits the lives of Jack and Riley as they come to terms with marriage, drama, love and family.

Jack not only has the horses for children project, but is working with three lost boys to create a safe place for abused gay kids. You’ll remember the boys, from the Triple K and the court case in Texas Fall. And there’s drama with Jack – you won’t believe the drama!

Riley? Well I haven’t decided what Riley is up to, but you can be sure it will be something that causes chaos in the Campbell-Hayes household. Oh, and let’s just say, ‘rope burns’.

Then of course there’s Hayley’s first dance, Connor and Lexie’s first words, and the best line in a party that Max will ever want.

Will Robbie and Eli tie the knot, after all, they said they would? Will Riley and Jack be another year older and another year wiser? What happens at Shooters Bar? Will Eden get her way with Sean, and what happens to Lisa and the secret she holds so close?

And… most importantly… what happens in the barn?
