Review: Welcome To Texas

Welcome to Texas
by Sally Farley

After moving from Minnesota to Texas, Kacey Newton must adapt to the strangeness of The Lone Star State. To Kacey, the accents are undecipherable, the heat is unbearable, the neighbors are inconsiderate and the hunky police chief’s uniform of choice is a tank top, baggy shorts and flip-flops.

The only thing Chief Jack Boudreaux likes as much as a sexy woman is steak. Thick, juicy steak. Now if he could just find a sexy woman who actually eats steak, and not just salad, he’d be in hog heaven. It’s just a matter of time before Jack attempts to seduce Kacey with a pitcher of ice cold margaritas, some spicy, hot fajitas and his dazzling Texas charm.

What a hoot this story was! I was just tickled from beginning to end. This author writes one smooth, funny story that was quick and easy to read. I loved everything about it (except maybe Cheryl, but that’s to be expected).

Poor Kacey, moving to slow, amicable Texas from high-strung, less friendly Minnesota is quite a change. She’s not sure how to interact with anyone—especially her redneck neighbor—and continually finds herself in awkward situations.

Jake, on the other hand, is just a handsome, good-old-boy who’s looking for a lady with whom to share some quality time and a plate steak fajitas.

From the first moment—when Kacey has a run-in with a pyramid of limes, to Jake’s discovery of his date’s blue teeth, to the interaction over a roast, this story is pure pleasure. I only wish it was longer… I’ll be on the lookout for more work from Sally Farley.
