"Find out if this cowboy can win back the girl he lost"

The latest in the Texas Montgomery Mavericks series
introduces Paige Ryan, a self-reliant girl who has
from college to a town in the Lone Star State, only to
Cash Montgomery when he's a shadow of his former self. The
once-champion rodeo rider got injured by a bull and has
been drinking and moping ever since.
TEXAS TWIST contains many characters from previous tales
which can fluster the new reader. However we see them from
the viewpoint of Cash as he wallows in self-disgust or
tells everyone including his brothers to leave him alone.
Paige as she tends the bar, assists in the clinic,
recalls how she used to admire her rodeo hero and enjoys
living alone. That is, until Cash sobers up enough to haul
himself back to the house his brother says he can use,
having sold his touring vehicle. Paige has rented the
but Cash doesn't know, which makes for a fun meeting.
Paige is set on a graduate nursing programme and is
determined not to let her former hero get in the way, so
she offers to share the space. Are they going to rip each
other's hair out? Is Whispering Springs a town big enough
for both of them?
I liked that the story involves several animals; a cat
keeps Paige company, a pup finds a home with Cash and a
lovely mare has been waiting for her mistress to find her.
There is a twister in the story, but not for as much time
as I'd been hoping. Overall I found this a pleasant adult
romance with a realism streak a mile wide.
Try TEXAS TWIST as a change from tamer
reads and meet busy people getting on with interesting
Real bad boys can grow up to be real good men.
Texas Montgomery Mavericks, Book 4
Hit hard by the death of her parents, Paige Ryan needs to
figure out what to do with her life. She moves to
Springs, Texas, to be near her step-brother. But just as
starts to get her life on track, the last man she ever
wanted to see again sends it right back off the rails.
Cash Montgomery was on the cusp of having it all. Three
riding titles, fame, fortune and respect from his family.
Until a bad bull leaves him injured, angry and searching
comfort at the bottom of a bottle. With nowhere to go, he
moves into his sister-in-lawâ€™s old ranch house in
Springsâ€”which heâ€™s surprised to find already occupied.
As Cash rebuilds the dilapidated home and Paige starts out
on her medical career, their old friendship begins to
reemerge and sparks are ignited. Paige knows that Cash is
nothing but a heartache waiting to happen. But maybe this
bad boy has grown up to be a real good man?
