Texas Sweethearts Series - Book Two

As young girls, they vowed to be best friends forever--a promise they kept through happiness and heartbreak! Now these four Texas Sweethearts are all turning thirty.  In spite of busy lives, full-time careers, and an assortment of beloved animals and meddling townsfolk, true love is destined to surprise each one of them in the magical little world of their own hometown. 

Donetta Presley is a magnet for guys. Sometimes really bad guys. Although she presents an air of confidence, a failed marriage has left her vowing to stay away from serious relationships. Never say never. One impulsive night of passion in the arms of the local lawman rocks her whole world forever. Like it or not, a long-term relationship is about to begin...and it's going to be complicated. To make matters worse, he's her best friend's brother, an ex-Texas Ranger and a man she's sworn would always be off limits.

Sheriff Storm Carmichael knows what trouble looks like, and the long-legged owner of the town's hair salon is just that--with a capital T. When the fire marshal red-tags her building for code violations, Storm has the unlucky duty of shutting down Donetta's business and closing her tiny apartment above the salon. He expects all hell to break loose, but he never could have dreamed that his Texas Sweetheart would be having his baby! Now this daddy-to-be is determined to change Donetta's mind about men and marriage and prove to her once and for always that good guys do exist--and he's the one for her!

"Highly entertaining with great dialogue, plotting and humor!"

Cute story. A little too many cliches and cutesy sayings in the dialog but overall good.

Really enjoyed this story. I loved the way Storm just stepped up and wanted to take care of Donetta, not only before he found out, but after he made the discovery. Donetta really struggled with her situation, but eventually, she conquered her demons. This book is the second in the series and can be read as a standalone. So far, the first book is my favorite, but this runs a close second. The characters are well written, the Texas Sweethearts are fun, and the story pulls you in from the very beginning and holds you until the last page. My icing on the cake would be if the writer would start adding an epilogue. I would so love to read about Storm and Donetta, maybe 1, 2, 3, maybe 5 years down the road. I voluntarily read and reviewed this book.

I really enjoyed Donetta and Storm's story. They are perfect together, loved the connection and build up of their relationship. What a great addition to the Texas Sweethearts series. Love the small town vibe - very realistic. The characters are strong, well written, developed and likable. The plot was entertaining and this book just really drew me in. I can't wait to read the next in the series. I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.

I loved this story so much! The Texas Sweethearts really are sweethearts! Donetta, Sunny, Becca Sue and Tracy Lynn are the sweethearts. Since they were children they vowed to be best friends and truly are. Donetta had a one night of passion with the love of her life, one of her best friend Sunny's brother, Storm. She discovers she is pregnant and tries to hide it from the small town of Hope Valley, Texas. Storm is the Sheriff and he arrives in her beauty salon to tell her she has to close up because of problems with her building. Storm plans to help her get her salon on track and insists she moves in with him until it is done. Donetta does not want to marry, she was married before and was abused and is gun shy. Of course once Storm finds out about the baby he wants to wed Donetta. A really sweet and fun read! I could not put it down!

Tall and sweet as a cool glass of water on a hot day, Donetta Presley is a magnet for guys- sometimes really bad guys. One failed marriage, though, and she¿s vowed to clean up her act. She¿s almost back on track- and then a wild ride in the arms of the local lawman shoots her up to number one on his Most Wanted list and has her eating for two. Sheriff storm Carmichael knows what trouble looks like, and the long-legged owner to the town¿s hair salon is just that- with a capital T. from the red curls cascading down her back to the perfect toes peeking out of her strappy sandals, Donetta is designed to disturb a man¿s peace. Making an honest woman out of her won¿t be easy, but Storm is a man with a mission. He just has to catch her first.
