Praise for Broken Rose of Texas:

"Each page full of sizzling scenes and packed with emotion. I couldn't stop! It leaves you aching for more." - Candace Osmond, USA TODAY Bestselling Author of the Dark Tides Series

A poignant and provocative romance from USA Today Bestselling Author Alexa Padgett.

She aches to make her own music…but I burn for the perfect revenge.

I never thought a late-night Scrabble game would blow my world apart. Moving letters. Keeping score. Swapping words and desire with a mystery woman who makes me fantasize of things I have no right thinking.

I can't get involved.

I won't.

Despite the pull of her lush curves and the electric crackle of chemistry between us, I resist. Regan has aroused something far more desirable than revenge, and I can't get sidetracked by my pesky feelings. Not now that my plot to pay back my best friend's heartbreaking betrayal finally snaps into place, and I vowed years ago to see it to the bitter end.

And that means no emotional entanglements. Even for her.

Until a vindictive smear campaign aimed at Regan is followed by a bombshell that blows my world apart…and our fragile relationship crumbles.  

Unless we both go all in and trust each other, we won't be able to pick up the pieces.

Broken Rose of Texas is an absorbing story about two people who make a connection that changes their lives. Regan is an unhappy pop star with a controlling father and a reporter intent on sabotaging her career. She's had her heart broken by people she trusted and is wary of letting anyone in. Carter had his world destroyed by a woman who lied and used him and he spends his time plotting revenge until he meets Regan, but can he trust that Regan isn't doing the same thing? Alexa Padgett is a great writer and a wonderful storyteller. Her characters are complex and their emotional stories are beautifully told. Regan and Carter have both been terribly hurt by people they loved and it's sweet to see them open up and trust again. I was quite caught up in the story and couldn't put it down. Very enjoyable. I am voluntarily reviewing an advance reader copy of this book.

Very heart-warming, emotional story. This is the first book of Alexa Padgett that I have read. I must say I am impressed by this story and the writing style. It felt so refreshing and very interesting that I have decided to buy the first part of the series and read the story of Camden the younger twin brother of Carter. The plot flows fluidly and I was immersed from the start to the very end. What I loved most and what made me hooked to the book was how it started. The scene with Carter and Regan in the penthouse made it for me and then I decided this is something that should be special, different and I wasn't wrong. I recommend this book. I absolutely fell in love with the main characters and also with the secondary couple, friends and family even with all the drama they brought into the life of Regan and Carter. Their lives are heavily complicated, they went through a lot and get enough angst and drama to serve for a lifetime or maybe even two. Their connection is instant, chemistry is palpable and romance beautifully evolve from physical attraction to something more.

This was a beautiful story about a famous singer just wanting a life away from the limelight and a tech billionaire who's seeking revenge following a bitter betrayal. Reagan is a talented singer who wants to create her own music her way. Carter has sworn off love. The chemistry between Carter and Reagan was off the charts intense and the sweet romance was very touching. Broken Rose of Texas was filled with betrayal, secrets, misunderstandings, heartache, passion, wit, romance, and love. This was a captivating story with wonderful characters readers will fall in love with. I loved this heartwarming story and I can't wait to read the next book in the series. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
