Blurb

Real bad boys can grow up to be real good men.

Hit hard by the death of her parents, Paige Ryan needs to figure out what to do with her life. She moves to Whispering Springs, Texas, to be near her step-brother. But just as she starts to get her life on track, the last man she ever wanted to see again sends it right back off the rails.
Cash Montgomery was on the cusp of having it all. Three bull riding titles, fame, fortune and respect from his family. Until a bad bull leaves him injured, angry and searching for comfort at the bottom of a bottle. With nowhere to go, he moves into his sister-in-law’s old ranch house in Whispering Springs—which he’s surprised to find already occupied.
As Cash rebuilds the dilapidated home and Paige starts out on her medical career, their old friendship begins to reemerge and sparks are ignited. Paige knows that Cash is nothing but a heartache waiting to happen. But maybe this bad boy has grown up to be a real good man?

Warning: Watch out for falling lumber, falling in holes, and falling for the wrong guy…again. You can leave your hard hat on.

Review

This is a first time author for me. I did notice that I had a "keep a eye out" note posted in my books-to-buy notebook. I'm very glad I gave the book a try. Texas Twist isn't book one in the series so I want to make sure you know that right away. Because of that fact it took me a while to figure out who's, who. In fact, I was lost about one of the family members till almost the end of the book when the author cleared it up for me. It was like she knew my thoughts. Putting that all aside, I still found this to be a enjoyable read. I liked the characters, they had real issues and emotions. You'll feel bad for Cash but also want to kick him in the butt once or twice. Paige is perfect for him. She won't take his crap but loves him enough to help me. I enjoyed this story enough that I will have to go back and check out the ones before it. Happy reading! 






Before I decide one way or the other, I want to make sure we’re clear on a few points. We have no future. There is no us. No long-term happy-ever-after. This isn’t a fairy tale, Paige. It’s real life.” He hated sounding so hard, so brusque, but she had to understand he had nothing to offer her. “If we do this, it’s just sex. Not making love or any other pretty label you might want to put on it. If it lasts through the summer, fine. We’ll go our separate ways when you leave for school. If either of us wants out before then, it’s over. No questions. No tears. No regrets.”
