BOOK REVIEW- Texas Forever (The Tylers of Texas Book 6) by Janet Dailey *


The one woman he didn’t dare touch …

From the moment Luke Maddox sets eyes on Erin Tyler, he can think of nothing else but laying claim to
Rimrock’s reigning beauty. But Erin is his boss’s daughter, and Luke knows Will Tyler has bigger plans for Erin’s future than a rough and tumble ranch hand with a brutal history and a talent for breaking hearts. Still, that can’t stop Luke from wanting her …

The one man she shouldn’t fall in love with …

As Rimrock Ranch’s heir apparent, Erin Tyler is expected to do the right thing, marry the right man, and take the reins of her family’s legacy when the time comes. Which is why she’s completely shaken by her attraction to her father’s latest hire. There’s something about the rugged, solitary stranger that calls to her soul. Is restless, independent Erin just feeling the familiar pull of her rebellious heart? Or is there something real happening between her and Luke? Something worth risking everything for …

Slow start but with good details.  Details of the land and the families and how they fit. The main characters were good and had an excellent cast of supporting people too. 
After the slow start, the book does start to pick up at about 33% or so on my kindle.  When this story took off it really did. I'm glad that I stuck with it because things really got interesting and with a whole lot of action. Then it begin to really keep me riveted to the story. 
I enjoyed the quiet romance between Erin and Luke.  People and situations kept trying to get in the way.  But after they climb over all of that there is a H.E.A. headed their way.  I know that might have given part of the story away.  But you really don't know how all of that was worked out, now do you? 
I had to shake my head over Erin a time or two.  The things that she is keeping secret so that it doesn't overload her father.  I get it but still it's a dumb move.  Almost guaranteed to come back and bite her in the butt. Of course, her father hasn't exactly been totally upfront with some important things either.  
I do give Erin credit for being knowledgeable when it comes to the ranch and her love for breeding and training her horses. 

There is some irony when it comes to who the "trigger" is in this story.  But there is also a whole lot more danger hanging around this family.   And responsibility after responsibility keeps coming down on Erin's shoulders all at once.   Good thing that she comes from tough stock and was raised to be that way no matter what.  She's going to need every ounce of that.
