Blurb:

Sometimes Riley and Jack have to be the ones to fight other people’s battles and stand up for what is right.

With the life-changing prospect of a yes vote from SCOTUS on the issue of same-sex marriage, Riley and Jack realize they have decisions to make. Add in some distressing family news and the very real possibility that old secrets may resurface, and this audiobook 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.

And so the series draws to a close with all the various storylines being wrapped up and resulting in a happy ending for everyone in the Campbell-Hayes household. Of course, there’s some angst and drama along the way, including new medical issues and more hospital visits.

Jack is still pursuing the young ranch hands who were abused along with Liam and wanting to improve their lives and future prospects.

Weddings are not the sole focus of this story, but the SCOTUS ruling allowing same-sex marriages in the US impacts on the various couples at the Double D. They get their chance to air their opinions and discuss their reaction to the ruling. Partly due to this, Jack and Riley want to put their family affairs in order with regard to their children. They each wish to be acknowledged as the rightful parent in case anything unthinkable should happen to the other.

Overall, this is another enjoyable story with an uplifting ending. It was great to follow the relationship development between the various couples, but most of all witnessing Jack and Riley’s journey over the seven stories. They emerge as caring, selfless individuals with a great love for each other, their family and work colleagues.

Sean Crisden is a talented narrator, perfectly suited to performing this type of story. His voice is spot on for each character, and he portrays the various personalities and emotions superbly. He keeps a steady pace and makes each story easy to listen to and follow.

Recommended but you do need to start at book 1 and follow the series in order.

Looking forward to Texas Gift, which should be out in time for Christmas 2018.

There never seems to be enough hours in the day despite having left the teaching profession to concentrate on her writing!

Lily discovered the wonderful world of m/m romance novels five years ago via fan fiction and went on to write stories in her spare time. With the encouragement of her friends and readers she decided to publish some of her work.
