Publisher's Summary

Against the backdrop of 20 half-naked models on DD land, and in the midst of fighting the oil establishment that just won't give Riley a chance, Texas Heat is the story of one hot summer in Texas with a Gay Rodeo, humor, angst, and a love between two men that just grows stronger every day.

Jack hires Robbie, a man recovering from a great loss, to be his right hand man. Meanwhile, Riley's mischievous photographer friend, Eli, decides the DD is the perfect backdrop for a cowboy themed model shoot. Eli has secrets not even Riley knows about but despite what he is hiding he falls in lust with Robbie at first sight. Everyone except Robbie can see how perfect Eli would be for him.

What happens when secrets spill and lies are discovered? And just how far will Riley and Jack go to play matchmaker?

Texas Heat - cowboys, gay rodeo and a new romance

This is the third story in the soap opera styled series set in and around the Double D ranch. The story continues for Riley and Jack, but two new main characters arrive on the scene and this instalment features the blossoming of Robbie and Eli’s romance. Both men have a tragic story to tell. Of course, they’re attracted to each other, but Robbie is reluctant to start a new relationship because of his past and because he intends to move on. Eli pursues Robbie while arranging an underwear photoshoot at the ranch. Pity he didn't get Jack and Riley to pose with the other models!

Riley and Jack are still smoking hot together and managing to keep their sex life active. The story highlights the now established couple's way of life and their scenes together are entertaining. There’s some angst and conflict for these guys. Riley has to deal with a business issue that could ruin his standing in the ethical oil exploration world. Meeting an old flame of Jack’s at a local gay rodeo causes some minor jealousy and leads to a bar brawl that sort of just fizzles out. Nothing major, but Riley and Jack's characters shine through the events.

There’s a mix of storylines here, told from the four main points of view, and other family members pop up here and there. Although enjoyable, the story felt like an introduction to the next story in the series.

Sean Crisden continues to narrate, with the added challenge of Robbie’s Australian accent. I could picture every scene and each character clearly as I listened to his voice.

Love this series

It’s a real love story with exciting twists and turns. Each series builds well on the previous stout and has me hooked. I find myself listening and giggling or out right laughter as the story continues. It has everything that makes a good book or a damn good movie!

Thank you RJ Scott!

Solid story, story couples

Honestly, I don’t enjoy the narrator Sean Crisden’s work in this series. His voice makes the characters sound like early twenties and not like the men I picture in my head. Thankful, the writing and plot remains very solid so I enjoy the story because Jack and Riley love was a gift that touched all those around them. Jack and Riley Campbell-Hayes are settling into family life with their daughter Hayley and extended family. The Double D Ranch is growing and Riley is trying to expand their oil exploration endeavors. The main couple is still crazy about each other and then of course, we get a blast from Riley’s wild past in the form of a man named Eli. Eli was a photographer who was trying to land a solid gig and wanted to use the ranch for his photoshoot.

While Eli is taking pictures, he meets one of the ranch hands Robbie, who came to the Double D to heal from a past of abuse. For the first time in this series, the reader is taken on a journey to coupledom featuring people not bearing the Hayes or Campbell last names. From Jack’s sister Eden and her boyfriend Sean to Riley’s mom getting married to her vet fiancée, it just feels like Jack and Riley’s relationship balanced the people around them. It is clear that they still are trying to find ways to make time for romance and putting their relationship first, but as a couple, they still make me smile. I’m thankful that the author doesn’t make them have those unnecessary relationship miscommunications and issues. Jack and Riley are the reason I love this series but I am looking forward to finding out what’s wrong with Eden’s boyfriend and having them back on solid ground.

What's next for Mr. & Mr. Campbell Hayes?

Would you consider the audio edition of Texas Heat to be better than the print version?

Didn't read it but the audiobook was amazing!

What was one of the most memorable moments of Texas Heat?

I thoroughly enjoyed Riley's mom showing up at the meeting and all but out right daring those men to disagree with her.

What about Sean Crisden’s performance did you like?

All of it? Seriously, he does Cowboy so well, but this is the first time I've been treated with an Aussie voice and he nailed it!

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Life goes on...

Any additional comments?

I love how the characters continue to grow and evolve and have to face new challenges. It really is about life moving on and how Jack, Riley and their daughter deal with things day to day. In this book we get to meet a new hand on the ranch, Robbie, an Australian transplant with a story, sorrow in his past. We also get to meet Riley college best friend, Eli, who also has a past. Everything comes together and at the end of the day, they are all stronger as long as they stick together.

I do hope there's more :)

Perfect Addition

I have enjoyed this series since I read the first book. I love how Jack and Riley work together. And every story in the series hooks you from the beginning and holds you until the last sentence. Texas heat proved that no matter how honest you try to be, your past will haunt you. There's always someone willing to throw a wrench into a smooth-running machine. But does outweigh evil in the end, and victory is always nice.
