Summary:

Riley’s past comes back to haunt him both professionally and personally.

His dead brother left more than just bitter memories for Riley to deal with. The FBI get involved and suddenly it is more than his good name that is on the line. Jack is always there for him but how much more can Riley’s husband reasonably be able to understand?

Especially when Riley finds out on his delayed honeymoon that he has an eight year old daughter he never knew existed…

Story Review:

Paisley and PizzyGirl reviewed the eBook here.

The second book of the Texas series is just as deliciously soapy as the first one.

RJ Scott writes wonderful romance and the continuation of Jack and Riley’s story was truly wonderful.

Here the soap opera story is that Riley has a surprise daughter as a result of his sleeping around in his younger days. I loved how both Jack and Riley accept they are going to be parents and are instantly ready to take Hayley in. Jack’s acceptance of his husband’s love child is a sign of exactly how much he loved Riley.

There is a lot of internal and external conflict here though I loved the realistic stuff more than the action. Seeing Jack help Hayley learn how to ride a horse was so sweet as was Riley taking care of getting Hayley enrolled in school and dealing with a way to publicize the story without making it too tabloid-ish.

The subplots such as both Jack’s mother and Riley’s sister finding boyfriends were interesting though they were a little glossed over. I liked how Riley becoming a father affected his relationship with his newly found father and seeing Hayley call Jack Papa was beyond cute.

The things that brought down the story was the FBI plot which was unneeded and how Hayley’s personality was portrayed when she originally came to live with her dad. Her behavior was odd and it seemed like she would’ve been a little more traumatized by everything that had happened in her life.

Despite those issues I still loved this story and can’t wait for the next one.

 

Narration Review:

Sean Crisden did an amazing job here. His voice matches Jack and Riley’s characters perfectly. He also did well with all the other characters.
