Beneath A Texas Star (Lone Star Cowboys #4)


Bull rider Nick Jackson, abandoned and raised in foster homes, is afraid to commit to anything except his two best friends. Although inexplicably drawn to psychologist Jean Sutherland, he refuses to believe he’s capable of loving or being loved. Hopelessly in love with Nick, Jean wants to help him unlock his past; secretly hoping it will lead to a future together. 


This installment of the Lone Star Cowboys series is a standalone story that won’t disappoint.  With a good blend of romance and suspense, "Beneath a Texas Star" is well-written story of self-discovery and love and flows smoothly. The characters are realistic, and the story line is engaging. The seamless inclusion of  characters from previous books in the series add to the richness of the story, as do the protagonists’ interactions. While the reader might find Nick’s indecisiveness frustrating, they’ll nevertheless understand it. His acceptance of the truth of his past seemed a little too quick and unnatural however, as did his viewpoint toward love and commitment.  Still it is a thoroughly enjoyable story that touches the heart. 


Tori Scott's latest effort is a touching story of romance between a man who has closed his heart to love and trust, and a woman who is willing to face the challenges to win both.  Painted with emotional depth, descriptive scenes, and promising romance, it welcomes the reader in and makes them feel at home.  Even though the sex is behind closed doors, the chemistry sizzles, causing the heat to rise, and promises to have the reader sighing with pleasure!
