My Review

3 Sucked in and waiting for the next book stars
My Texas Sweetheart is the first book in a so far unnamed series by an author I’m not familiar with; I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review so here goes.....
I really liked the sound of this blurb its cute and sweet but with a hint of a darker edge, just my cup of tea. 
To be honest this book was not really what I was expecting. 

Maggie and Jase are high school seniors; Maggie is an innocent only girl in a large family of six older brothers. She is fairly closeted and very over protected.

Jace is the typical 18yr old boy who is shagging any girl who is willing lol.

I like both of them but I don’t feel like I got to know either of them particularly well. 

This is a strange book, lots of awful things happen but I struggled to emotionally relate to them as I didn’t feel that the characters were particularly deep. 

Don’t get me wrong we are told what happens, it’s descriptive but there wasn’t any indication of how the characters felt or what impact it had on them.

Ok so seriously what the hell is wrong with Christian!!! How does he go from school boy to
psycho/rapist/kidnapper/murderer in one foul swoop!!! What’s worse is that all I know about his character is that he has blue eyes and is jenny’s cousin; oh an he’s a nutter!!!

I loved the family dynamic in this book, Maggie’s family is very close and they take Jace’s family under their wing too which is just adorable 

I wanted Maggie and Jace to be together but for me she never really deals with her rape, so I found it odd that she would have no real fallout from such an awful ordeal. 

Unfortunately I just didn’t really engage with this book, I really wanted to because I’m really intrigued what is going to happen next.

I’m giving this book 3 stars but I still really want to read the next book.
