A Notice To My Readers: Four Houses is not one of my books.

Another reviewer wrote that "this is everyday people, in their everyday lives, facing everyday problems" and that is such a great way to put it. It is such a refreshing change to see that all these people aren't rich and successful. They are down-home working class individuals who are as real to you as the people next door, maybe more so. This book had everything you would want in a story. This author is great at that and her books are those that no matter how much you try, you cannot put it down. I personally recommend this book and the author to anyone who is looking for a spark of laughter, a spark of sadness and a heavy dose of real life by characters that you will fall in love with.

Blame it on Texas is the first book I have read by Tori Scott. As soon as I finished this one I bought the second and third in the series. They are a little addictive (Okay, maybe a lot). No saving the world or stopping evil governments, just a well written story about an everyday life of everyday heroes in the small town of Morris Springs, Texas. Of course these people have everyday real problems too, problems that I could relate too. The characters were written so that I found them likable and to be the kind of people you would want as your friend. So early in the book, I came to care about Logan, his daughter, Katie and his love interest Megan, a friend of his sister’s; wanting all to work out for them. It was warm, romantic and sad in parts just like real life. And just like real life it was a great reminder not to let the past stop you from enjoying the present. A wonderful beginning to the series.

I loved this book it was wholesome yet steamy, the characters were engaging and a total page turner straight to the end! I felt emotionally invested in this story from the beginnning and was sent on an emotional roller coaster throughout. This author managed to write about serious life and relationship issues just as seamlessly as steamy sex scenes that raise your body temp a coupla degrees ;) I have read everything I can get my hands on by this author and have never been disappointed so I would gladly recommend this book to anyone that enjoys a good solid read! Get it, read it, enjoy as much as I did!
