    W0w! just wow!

    What a way to launch a new series! Fossen combines emotion with real life, difficult changes with the (sometimes a little hidden) love of friends and family in a manner that both warmed my heart and broke it a little. The plot was both poignant and comical, adding to enjoyment. The picturesque descriptions allowed me to experience the tale while falling in love with the characters. From characters who are a little bit broken to relationships that hold your heart, Fossen has it all in this cast of characters. I loved how everyone was so real. No one was perfect, yet everyone was perfectly themselves. The entire cast was a blast to get to know, but the main characters were by far the best. Claire’s indecision and doubt cause havoc in her personal life, creating a one of a kind story that had me laughing and crying in turns. Beneath it all, her caring heart shone, making me love her all the more. Riley’s warrior attitude, combined with him coming to grips with his new reality truly created a hero to love. As a whole, this was a fantastic novel. I easily lost myself in this story, never able to forget the fantastic manner in which Fossen painted this world. Please note that I received a complimentary copy of this work in exchange for an honest review.

    What a way to start a new series outstanding

    This is one story you do not want to miss the author gives you all the things that you look for in a romance. It is kind of a second chance between two people who have always loved the other but never truly knew it. It is a very touching heartbreaking read which will make you laugh and want to cry. Riley is home on medical leave trying to get his self back into shape to go back out and do it all again. The one woman he has never been able to forget is his first love Claire. Seeing her again is tearing him apart, knowing she has a son that isn’t his is about to kill him. Claire is there when he wakes up after coming home late to find all these women asleep all over his house. At first sight they are right back like they were before he left in the easy world of humor, love and laughter. Claire has more than one man after her heart which has always belonged to Riley. Daniel is still very much in the picture and demanding she marry him. Claire just wants to be happy have a loving home and family. All the reason is still the same from years ago when she picked Daniel but with Riley home can she turn away from the attraction and passion coming off them. The time has come to pick one or the other. Who will she pick? Riley is in a lot of pain and just wants to be left alone. There seem to be woman every where each time he turns around that wants to help him through his pain and give a little more TLC than is needed. He only has eyes for Claire but Daniel and these other women keep getting in the way. Why is everyone asking him if Claire’s son is his? He must have some answers and hope maybe just maybe he will win the girl this time. The author gives you a fun loving funny story which will keep you laughing and also make you want to cry. You can feel the pain and the passion of these characters as your heart goes out to them. The chemistry is strong and will burn up your pages. The supporting characters are just as great as the main. I didn’t care too much for Daniel he is to controlling there are a few ladies I am not too crazy about either but that is how the author wants you to feel. They bring so much entertainment to this story. There will be fights, crazy women, and hot women along with hot men. Riley’s family is a trip I laughed so hard at them. I just loved his brothers and can’t wait to read their story. The author spins a little mystery as she puts some major twist to give you a highly entertaining read. This has a wonderful plot where the words flow easy. Once you read this you will know why she is a bestseller as she gives you a fun tension fill read filled with romance like you haven’t seen. I highly recommend you pick this up and I know you will love it as much as I have.

    Sweet and entertaining

    Captain Riley McCord is hoping for some peaceful downtime as he returns home to recover from his injuries but unfortunately for him, that's not the case. News of his homecoming has made the rounds and he has a robust welcoming committee in the form of all the town's unattached women tripping over themselves to provide him with some TLC. Except the one person he would totally welcome some TLC from - his childhood friend Claire Davidson. Claire who chose his best friend over him and is now firmly off-limits to him. But even his rules can't keep him away from Claire this time, especially as she's just as willing as he is to give in to the attraction between them. The only question is: what will happen when he has to return to work? Riley has always had Claire's heart but his choice of career meant he could not offer her the stability she hungered for, so she made a safer choice. Now that Riley is back, Claire is willing to take a chance on him even though she knows that he won't stay and he'll definitely be leaving with a piece of her heart. This story is sweet and entertaining, with very realistic characters facing difficult choices. Riley has always measured his worth by his extraordinary accomplishments and isn't willing to entertain the thought that his injuries (both physical and mental) could mean the end of his career and a return to an ordinary life, never mind that that life could have Claire and her adorable son in it. Claire's abandonment by her parents left an open wound that has never healed and the death of her grandmother only makes the hurt worse. Obviously, these two are not in the best shape to make any major choices regarding their futures and between Riley's indecision and Claire's passive-aggressive way of dealing with issues, as well as the other love interests, there was a lot going on, some of it irritating and some of it funny but all very interesting. Honestly my favorite character is Livvy. TEXAS ON MY MIND illustrates the best and worst of small towns especially the lack of privacy, and the writing was very good. Ms. Fossen did a great job capturing the emotions and choices Claire and Riley struggled with. Overall, the story was enjoyable even though the ending was too easy for me, but I'm intrigued by the glimpses of the McCord siblings and the overall direction of the series, so I will be keeping up with the rest of the books.
