Sometimes Riley and Jack have to be the ones to fight other people's battles and stand up for what is right.
Faced with the life changing prospect of a yes vote from SCOTUS on the issue of same sex marriage, Riley and Jack realise they have decisions to make. Add in some distressing family news and the very real possibility that old secrets may resurface, and this book 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.
Listening Length: 5 hours and 59 minutes.
Narrator: Sean Crisden
As I said in my original review(and the re-read), Texas Wedding is jam packed with warmth, laughter, friendship, family, and love as life on the Double D react to SCOTUS' ruling on gay marriage. We see not only Jack and Riley's reactions but everyone's. Texas Wedding is a lovely addition to the Texas universe and Sean Crisden brings it to life and frankly I don't think anyone could have done it better. I don't often listen to audiobooks despite having quite a few in my library(including old tapes, CDs, and now digital) because no matter how much I love the story I found myself tuning out and concentrating on what else I was doing, suddenly the story shuts off and I've missed most of it. So now when I do set out to listen I want to know that I will be hooked and not distracted, well between RJ's writing and Sean's voice I am mesmerized.
Re-Read Review 2016:
I don't think I can say anything that I didn't say a year ago when I read it the first time. I still found myself tearing up throughout both from laughter and heartwarming. So good, I just can't imagine it ending any other way.
Original Review 2015:
This book had me in tears, both from laughing and tenderness, had me fanning myself from hotness, simply put Texas Wedding had me in a jumble of emotion. I don't really know what to say about Jack and Reily that I haven't already said throughout the series. When Texas Wedding's release day arrived my heart warred between my need to know and my need to prolong the finale but my need to know won out. This was a great way to end an amazing series and the idea of there being no more Jack and Reily is heartbreaking but I am sure we haven't actually seen the end of our favorite couple, even if their future is in the form of secondary characters in a future spin-off series, Legacy, coming in 2016. Texas will always be my absolute favorite series in the M/M genre, not only because it was the first I read but because it is superbly written with characters that are interesting, intriguing, and real. RJ Scott has given us a true gem when she created the world of Jack and Reily Campbell-Hayes.
RJ’s goal is to write stories with a heart of romance, a troubled road to reach happiness, and most importantly, that hint of a happily ever after.
RJ Scott is the bestselling author of over one hundred romance books. She writes emotional stories of complicated characters, cowboys, millionaire, princes, and the men who get mixed up in their lives. RJ is known for writing books that always end with a happy ever after. She lives just outside London and spends every waking minute she isn’t with family either reading or writing.
The last time she had a week’s break from writing she didn’t like it one little bit, and she has yet to meet a bottle of wine she couldn’t defeat.
