    Not Like All the Others

    Unlike the others who have posted reviews here, I liked this book. It wasn't your typical romance novel, but that was fine with me. I'm just plain tired of the same old, same old stuff that shows up in romance novels. The obligatory love scene on page 167, followed by a phony crisis on page 246, followed by an unbelievable resolution on page 320. I was glad to see something different in this book. I thought reading about a relationship between three different couples of different ages and what resulted from the choices they made was interesting. Whether you liked the plot or not, it was written well and the characters were all sympathetic.

    Enjoyable Texas romance

    This is the continuing story of the Strayhorn Dynasty and the denizens of Lockett, Texas, first introduced in Lone Star Women. This time the focus is supposedly on estranged cousin Jake Strayhorn and his relationship with newcomer Jolie Jensen. A theme of this series is the empowerment of naïve women and their finding happiness with the right man. There are actually four story arcs: . The triangle of Jolie, Jake and ex-husband Billy. . The follow-up on couple Jude & Brady Fallon from Lone Star Women. I enjoyed finding out she and Brady were happily married and expecting a child. I would have enjoyed exploration of the prenuptial agreement and why only Andy his son and not Jarrett his stepson spent time at the Strayhorn ranch. . The triangle between Suzanne, Pat & ex-beau Mitch. Pat appeared to be definitely a 'man of the west. . The secret relationship of Jude's father J.D. current patriarch of the Strayhorn Dynasty that he maintained for twenty years but would never led to marriage. I really enjoyed this storyline because it showed the complexity and responsibilities that come with that kind of wealth. It showed how difficult it is to know who your true friends are something Jude seemed to have forgotten. It also illustrated how someone successful in every other facet of his life was doomed to be forever unlucky in love. Because there were four storylines Jakes story was short-changed. You find out his family never really had a problem with him, he had one with them. But that is never fully explored. Also what effect (if any) would the reconciliation have on the dynasty? After all he does have plans for children in the future. What about Jolie's daughter Danni? When does Jake establish a relationship with her yet he plans to marry her mother? I never really got a feel for Jake other than he was sexy, handsome and lonely. In retrospect this book would have been better served with one or two less storylines. The Suzanne triangle could have been a book unto itself. Although doing so would lose an important plot device. A complaint I have with both books in this series is the story wrap-up appears rushed. A lot happens in the last couple of pages which after spending so much time on character and story development leaves you flat.

    lengthy in spots

    This book had great characters and the plot itself was good, but I felt there were too many stories put into one. At the times the the main characters were extremely detailed, others times not. The ending was so rushed. Didn't enjoy the book unfortunately.

    The main character should have been someone else............

    It's like the main character was at the beginning and at the end, and he was a timid man. Didn't understand it at all. Now, the second leading man, he was a man and the book should have centered on him because he was worth it. Anna Jeffries I love; Sadie Callahan, this one just didn't make it.

    more from this reviewer

    an entertaining contemporary Texas romance

    Fearing for herself but more for her ten years old daughter Danni, Jolie Jensen flees from her serial convict spouse Billy Dean, who is out of prison for the moment. She drives during a storm across the Lone Star State to her new position as a cook and kitchen manager on a Strayhorn ranch. Her plan is for the two Jensen females to hide safely there.

    Jolie loves the feeling of serenity and waking up feeling safe; she also relishes how much her beloved Danni has blossomed with the positive attention the child receives. Willard County Sheriff Jake Strayhorn is very attracted to the mother and daughter, but his gut knows she is on the run from someone; probably Danni's father though she refuses to tell him. Jake vows to keep both safe when this beast arrives; as he is positive the day of reckoning is coming soon.

    Man of the West is an entertaining contemporary Texas romance starring two strong lead protagonists and a solid support cast including the raging husband. The story line is character driven and though Danni is probably too precocious and adjusted after having Billy Dean in and out of her life, fans will enjoy this wonderful sequel to Lone Star Woman, which needs to be read first as several subplots continue the overarching tale of the Strayhorn family.
