It's Always Hotter When You're In Texas...

Happy Thursday All,

Today is the one-year death anniversary of my friend, Sarah.
However, given that she was also a fan of Christie Craig, I can't think of a better day to post a book review of one of Christie's novels.

So I dedicate this review to Sarah. I think she would've liked this novel.

Christie Craig’s Hotter In Texas series kicked off with Dallas’s book, Only In Texas, continued with Tyler’s Blame It On Texas, and it finishes with a bang with Austin’s Texas Hold ‘Em.

Austin is a man on a mission. 

He and his buddies, Dallas and Tyler of the Only In Texas P.I. firm were framed for a crime they never committed. Swearing vengeance on the evil-doer, Rafael DeLuna, the trio vowed to bring the criminal to justice.

In order to do that they need info on DeLuna’s whereabouts. Roberto—a man with his own agenda—has been their informant, but Austin is concerned. He’s not sure whether or not the can trust Roberto.


Austin hatches a plan. He decides to go and check out DeLuna’s half-sister, Leah Reece. 

Strictly business. No hanky-panky, and no falling for her. It's not going to happen, period the end...

Especially when

He finds out Ms. Reece is Dr. Reece of a cat-specialty clinic. And Austin is deathly afraid of cats. Having had his ear nearly scratched off when he was 4 years old, he’s learned to avoid all felines.


A man’s gotta do what a man’s gotta do. So he pulls himself together and befriends Leah.

Leah never expected

to have such a good looking neighbor, or to even want to have anything to do with him. Her main priority is protecting her younger brother, Luis, and getting out from under her school loans so that her clinic can keep itself afloat.

She also never bargained 

on her apartment being bugged, or broken into…or falling for the hot neighbor.

Chaos, water guns, and cats collide in this installment of the Hotter In Texas novels.

The question is…

can love conquer all…and will justice be served? Or is it all just going to be one big catastrophe?

Find out in 

Texas Hold ‘Em, now available on Amazon and Barnes & Noble, also iBookstore, and All Romance, as well as Kobo.

Have A Thrillingly Tip-Top Thursday!
