Description of the book:

The quiet horse whisperer whose touch still ignites her dreams—and is everything wealthy Lauren Prescott is not. She can think of a million reasons why she should never ever fall into Sky Fletcher’s sure embrace again. Until she clashes head-on with the dangerous complications of her privileged life and needs his protection like air to breathe . . .

She’s more than he can resist.

The heiress Sky can’t get out of his heart, no matter how much he tries. And being the secret third Tyler son doesn’t change a thing. All he wants from his two brothers is help uncovering a dangerous conspiracy threatening his land, their ranch, and the spirited beauty he never should have touched. . .

My review of Texas Tough

I did not read the first book in the series. Although it would have been helpful to know a little bit about the Tyler brothers and Jasper before I read Texas Tough it really wasn’t necessary. The way Janet Dailey wrote the back story was just enough to give me an idea of what transpired in the previous book without a big back story dump.

The love story  of Sky, the horse whisperer, and the neighboring accountant, Lauren was good. I liked the back story of Natalie and Beau’s romance. Too bad we’ll never see Will and Tori get back together. Maybe that is what was planned for a third book, but now we’ll never know since Janet Dailey passed away in 2013.

The story had quite a few twists and turns that were totally unexpected. The characters were very well defined and likeable. It was not a fast paced novel but it did keep a steady pace throughout. I liked the story but it just didn’t make me want to say “I couldn’t put it down” or I loved this book. It was good.
