Mending Fences is Book 1 in the Texas Heat series and it features the lively O’Connor family who work hard and love hard.

Marlene is one of the Red O’Connor’s kids and she’s got her dad’s fiery temper. Itching for something bigger, she left the family ranch in Texas and hasn’t been back for a while. Now, for the first time in months, she’s back on vacation where she meets Curtis Copeland who is working as a ranch hand on Circle O. The last thing Marlene wants is any form of relationship, she has a full life already and it’s not on the farm. Curtis has different ideas though; he’s waited ten years to finally have Marlene and fate or destiny delivered her to him. Yet everything seems to be working against them. Marlene’s family is dead set against the relationship and Curtis harbors a ten year old secret that can tear them apart. Whether they will be able to overcome the obstacles to be together is a question neither Marlene nor Curtis can answer.

Enjoyable Marlene grew up in her family ranch always helping. Curtis was working on the ranch next door when he and she was 15 and he was stealing fence post so he could see her. Now years later he is working on her family ranch and she's home for vacation and they finally connect.

What seemed like a cute idea turned into a complete farce. How Amelia Rose can write about ranches, horses and rodeos when she doesn't know the difference between a gelding and a stallion- both of which she writes Sam, Curtis' horse, as is beyond me. She writes of rodeos as if they're county fairs giving prizes for show horses. Redundant sentences abound. Andrew "toed the ground with the toe of his boot"and "his jeans were tight in some areas due to a hard on". Marlene is "hopelessly addicted to his presence" so why is she not with him? Let's not overlook "blissfully seductive kisses saturated in warmth" or her use of "entangle" as a noun. Why does Marlene even think that "just because she was thrown" it didn't mean she shouldn't "get back in the saddle". Ridiculous because growing up on a ranch she would have done so numerous times already. Rather than addressing the employees who talked of Curtis "banging the boss's sister" Andrew attacks Curtis. Cowardly. What kind of boss allows employees to speak about his sister, who he's so eager to protect, as though she's loose? What kind of brother does that? The way she defames Irish people is shameful. All Irish are loud, possessive, arrogant, unreasonable, easily angered and difficult to get along with. That's not the Irish blood that makes the O'Connor boys this way and it denigrates an entire group to say so. The characteristics are O'Connor blood. Saying that "family is everything to the Irish culture" is to be very shortsighted and indicates lack of cultural knowledge. I could not finish this tripe. The characters were unevenly written, sentences sometimes made no sense or were redundant, it seemed written by one who had never been outside a city, but was attempting to imagine and write life on a ranch. Pitiful.
