Blog Tour: Texas on My Mind by Delores Fossen

Author: Delores Fossen
Publisher: Harlequin
Date of publication: February 23, 2016

The McCord Brothers are the most eligible bachelors in Spring Hill, Texas. But these cowboys are about to get wrangled by the love of some very unique women—the kind who can melt hearts and lay it all on the line. 

Air force captain Riley McCord has come home on medical leave to find one heck of a welcome reception. Every unattached woman in Spring Hill, Texas, wants to nurse him back to health. That includes his childhood friend Claire Davidson—the only person who understands how damaged he really feels. In high school, she chose his best friend over him. According to Riley’s rules, that should make her off-limits forever. But when Claire suggests a no-strings fling, he can’t refuse.

Claire always wanted Riley—but she also craved the safety and stability he couldn’t offer. So she chose another path, only to end up crazier about him than ever. She’s even convinced herself that this time she won’t be devastated when he leaves. Yet once Riley realizes the depth of Claire’s feelings—and his own—he’ll have to make the ultimate choice: return to the job he loves or stay home for the woman who’s always lived in his heart.

Texas on My Mind is a cute second chance romance.  Riley and Claire have been friends for years. He has never made a play for he since she chose their friend Daniel over him in high school.  He is back home recovering from an injury due to an attack while at war.  Claire is in town to get her grandmother's house ready for sale.  Both seem to be at a crossroads in their life.

I liked this story for the most part.  I thought Claire and Riley were cute together. I loved their easy relationship that had years of friendship behind it.  I was definitely rooting for them.  I also thought that Riley's brother's were interesting and look forward to learning more about them. 

What I didn't love about the story was the other three people (Daniel, Trisha and Jodi) that kept getting in the way of their romance.  I'm not sure I have seen so many people who can't take "no" for an answer.  I know it was supposed to be funny and make things more interesting, but it just annoyed me after a while.  I also know that small towns are supposed to be notorious for gossip, but really it was a little over the top for me.  The other thing that I didn't like was the truth about Ethan's paternity.  That was a bit weird.

This is the first in a new series.  I am looking forward to seeing what comes next for the McCord boys.
