Now I know why I’m hooked on RJ Scott’s novels. She’s just so talented at bringing many different emotions to each and every one of her characters; it’s just impossible to pick a favorite—friendship, love, romance, guilt, the struggle to make decisions, it just goes on. Daniel’s story is very difficult to read at times, because his trust was stolen and his life destroyed at a very young age. There’s a distinct contrast between Daniel and Corey with the issues that they have to face. They’re two young men whose lives spiraled out of control, but then a gradual rebuilding takes over, with understanding, love and the strength to go on.
The author also brings us back in touch with Jack and Riley (from the Texas series), with tidbits of where life has taken them. The most important thing that’s brought to the forefront, though, is love, friends and family—not just the one you’re born into but the family you make. And always having a place to call home. I’ve been following the Texas series since it first started in 2013 with The Heart of Texas, so I did a re-read of Texas Fall, the sixth book, to refamiliarize myself with Kyle, Gabriel, and Daniel’s situation. Then I followed up with a binge re-read of the entire Legacy Ranch series. I found myself wanting to pick a favorite out of the three books, but it just wasn’t fair because the guys and their significant others all had something special that they brought to this amazing series.
