Overview

Katie Harris loved growing up on a ranch. She had her horse, the beautiful Texas prairie, and Cole Logan, the cowboy next door. But there are a lot of secrets hidden under a Texas sky. . .

Katie was always sure she'd marry Cole Logan someday--until he kicked away her pretty dreams like so much horse pucky. So she wised up and moved to the big city. And she was happy there. That is, until her daddy got sick, and she found herself back on the wrong side of Cole's corral.

Cole knows Katie doesn't want anything to do with him. But after so many years, he can't pretend she's no more than a neighbor. Not when thinking about her cherry lip gloss and hell-for-leather passion is keeping him up all night. Holding his ground was hard enough when she was seventeen. Now that she's her own woman, Cole's heart doesn't stand a chance. . .

"Passionate, gritty and fast paced. . .with a hot blooded, honorable hero to make every woman's knees go weak." –Diane Whiteside

"A tortured hero, a love that defies distance and time. . .this is a book you won't soon forget." --Cat Johnson

    I just read TEXAS WIDE OPEN by KC Klein. I am still wiping tears

    I just read TEXAS WIDE OPEN by KC Klein. I am still wiping tears off my cheeks. This is the BEST BOOK I have read this year. NO question. I'm a romantic suspense author and my tastes run toward, well, romantic suspense obviously, and paranormals. But KC is a friend so I figured I would read this contemporary romance to be nice. I'm so glad I did. Honestly, I had reservations - because it's not a genre I typically enjoy. And, it skips back and forth in time, showing what happened in the past then what's happening in the present. I thought it would be a chore reading back and forth in time. Instead, I found myself marveling at KC's brilliance. The way she wove in what happened and juxtaposed it against current day was exactly the way this story should have been told. It was an incredibly clever way to keep building tension by revealing bits and pieces of backstory. I loved the hero and heroine and the secondary love story was wonderful as well. This story is gut-wrenchingly emotional. If you don't cry at least once, something is wrong with you. Seriously. I absolutely loved it. And I do have to add a plug for how she handled the setting. I know nothing about Texas and very little about horses. KC wove such unique, interesting elements of both into the story that I really felt like I was there, in Texas, on a horse ranch. I highly recommend this book. It's just an absolutely wonderful love story. My only complaint is that I didn't want it to end!

    Good story

    The cover and title of this book gives the wrong impression. Its not a dirty book. there are some sex, but not in detail like in some books. Most historical romance have more detailed sex then this. Good stroy.

    This review was first seen at Reading Between the Wines!

    Girl grows up with the older boy next door. Girl falls madly in love with the older boy next door, and even at the age of eight knows that one day, she's going to marry that boy. (Cue famous Trisha Yearwood song) Girl grows up, and boy next door breaks her heart at the age of eighteen, so girl leaves her small hometown in Texas to go to college in New York.

    In New York she meets a new boy who is sweet, and after a couple of years tells her he loves her, and wants to marry her. So girl gives up on hometown heartbreak from the boy next door and moves on. Right?

    Wrong. Nope. No ma'am, not right. Our heroine Katie gets a phone call from the heartbreak kid, otherwise known as Cole, when he tells her that her Dad had a heart attack and she needs to come home to Texas. Cole sees Katie's father as surrogate father since the day Cole's Dad died when he was sixteen and had to become the man of his house. So needless to say, he's there Mr. Harris as he's recovering from the heart attack. It's hard on his own heart though, to have the only girl he ever wanted as his own back home and still mad enough at him to spit nails. Or take a baseball bat to his truck. If she only knew the truth why he had to do what he did a few years ago, maybe she could forgive him and then they could get on with their lives together. Or at least that's what he thought till he saw the engagement ring on Katie's finger.

    I liked this story. It was angsty and emotional and had a total Carrie Underwood moment that I've wanted to try myself a few times in life. It's also laid an excellent plot line for a sequel involving Cole's sister and his best friend Jet that I can't wait to read! Brave Ms. Klein for a great book and it's a solid four wine glass toast to Texas Wide Open! (On a side note - am I the only one who thinks those red boots on the front cover kick ass?)

    Hard to Review

    This book is hard for me to review because I liked the story line and I liked Katie and Cole. I didn't mind that an awful lot of Jett and Nikki was thrown in (second book - Hustlin' Texas)... But, what I didn't like was how it jumped back and forth from current day to periods of the past... The book could have been laid out in sequence and I think it would have been so much better. Because the author did so much "jumping" there were a lot of "gaps"... I found myself wondering what had happened in between the "gaps".. I have read the author before and enjoyed her books... Fell in love with Cole from the first and wish I could give this story a higher rating...

    Disgusting

    It is said not to judge a book by it's cover but when it is combined with this purposely suggestive title how can you not see soft/hardcore porn pointed straight between the model's wide open knees? She could be just as easly poised for an annual exam. No thanks, this is definitely not the book for me!

    Disappointment! I read about this book on Heroes and Heartbreaki

    Disappointment! I read about this book on Heroes and Heartbreaking and liked the plot. Unfortunately it was a disappointment. This book has two stories and two dramas until the end. Just 233 pages, its little for two romances. But all book is just drama and nothing else happend. There are little kisses and nothing else. When the secondary couple finally make love the author doesnt describe it. The main couple are a mass. This was my first and last book from this author.
