Book 4 of the Texas Rodeo Barons
Definitely Not Daddy Material!
Jasmine Marks is focused and hardworking, and when she took a job as engineer for Baron Energies, she left behind her support network. Now, the burden of caring for her twin girls is all on her, and she doesn't have time for a dilettante playboy like Jet Baron. Besides, she needs her job, and she can't blow it by getting involved with the boss's son.
On the surface, Jet Barron is a dabbler, dropping into work one day and riding rodeo the next. But when he makes his mind up, he goes for it, full-out. He knows a lot more than anyone suspects, about the oil business, about women. And this woman needs someone to count on—which will be Jet, if he gets his way.

Overall The Texan’s Twins was a good read for me. I’m a big fan of these family saga type series and love the strong bonds between family members – whether protecting each other or giving each other the old “snap out of” it advice that is so often needed. I’m not a huge fan of kids in books, but the twins were adorable and added a nice dimension to the story, especially when it came to Jet.
I totally loved Jasmine…most of the time She was a very strong woman who was successful and smart, and even though she has loved and lost and now must raise her twins on her own, she has persevered and created a good life for her and the twins. I love that she has a very non-traditional job for a female – and that first scene between Jet and Jasmine when he thinks she is a stripper and not the engineer he’s supposed to be meeting still has me chuckling! She did tend to frustrate me at times with some of her actions though, which had me wishing she had some family of her own to tell her to snap out of it!
Jet started out just ok but began to grow on me throughout the book. It was nice to see him grow and change, and I loved how he was with the twins. He did frustrate me a bit with how long it took him to come around and realize the type of guy he really was, but once he did it was easy to fall in love with him.
Overall this was a good read that just fell a little bit flat for me, perhaps because both Jet and Jasmine got me a bit too frustrated at times which for me, took a bit too much out of the romance. I did enjoy the writing style of Ms. Britton so I will definitely look to try out some of her other books as well as look into the other books in the Texas Rodeo Barons, which are all written by different authors.
I received a copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

This had the potential to be a charming little book and I'm always a fan of books where there are twins involved, being a twin mommy myself. However, this one fell a little flat for me.
Part of it was the predictability of the plot. I knew one of the twins was going to end up sick (though kudos to the author for the disease/illness that it ended up being, rather than the one I THOUGHT it was).
I liked Jet's alternate thoughts regarding Jasmine and her kids. It showed real growth on his part over the course of the book when he came to accept that he was in love with a woman with kids when he'd always shied away from any romances where there were any signs of potential emotional commitment.
Cool to see a female in Jasmine's line of work.
I wish I could have liked the book more because there were certainly a plethora of great characters, but unfortunately I just didn't fully fall into the world. I had no trouble walking away from it (both during and after the reading itself). The author's talented, just not my cup of tea in this case.

Harlequin continues the tradition of American romances with this latest installment, THE TEXAN’S TWINS by Pamela Britton, part of Harlequin’s Texas Rodeo Barons series.
The basic plot works well in the story, a single mother comes to a new town to start over, meeting the ne’er do well cowboy along the way. When the cowboy is millionaire playboy Jet Baron, her boss’ son, sparks fly in all directions.
The characters are well-drawn in the story and there’s a lot of back story to support them. Supporting characters are a great asset as they help direct the story to its HEA. Side plots complement although I did find myself wanting to know more about Jet’s sisters, Lizzie, Carly and Savannah and their respective romances.
Jasmine is a strong character, a single mother of twins who has to balance her life as a mother with her job as an oil geologist. Illness, exhaustion, scheduling and all the pitfalls of a full-time working mother are portrayed well. It’s a pleasure to see her bring the confident and cocky Jet to his knees. I thoroughly enjoyed the book and recommend it.

The Texan's Twins had me really involved in the characters. The twin girls were so cute, even fighting cute. While they were running tests really had me feeling it. As a single mom having the dad die it is scary when your kids are sick and having no one to rely on.
Jet Barron is a likable guy. He knows nothing about kids and how to deal with them. He likes to do different things and resents having to work in family oil business full time. He likes entering rodeos, flying helicopters, working the family ranch.
Jasmine Marks is the mother of twins. Their father died before they were born. She just moved to town and working full time job. She is an engineer works for Baron oil. Her parents are deceased.
Jasmine and Jet are now working together to drill a new well. They get off to a bad start by Jet thinking his friends are playing a joke and sent stripper out where he is to meet the engineer. Everyone warns Jet to stay away from Jasmine except for work.
The setting is Texas. This is book #3 of The Texas Rodeo Barons all written by different writers. We see a lot of familiar characters that we have read in the first couple of books. Did not really learn anything about the missing mom except that Brock asked Jet to find out what his sisters know about search.
Lots of drama, lots of horses, relationships a few love scenes. Easy fast read.
I have only read a few of Pamela Britton's books before but I like it and would read more from her in the future
I was given this ebook to read and in return I agreed to give honest review of it. Net Galley and Harlequin gave me the ebook.
