THIS IS THE BEDROOM VERSION OF THIS STORY
Elizabeth McGee never thought she'd set foot in Loveless, Texas, again. But after the reading of her father's will, Elizabeth learns she's inherited her grandmother's house and all of the personal contents. If that isn't enough to knock her off her feet, she soon discovers that JD Carmichael, her lost love from high school, is the contractor who has been hired to finish renovating the house. JD once had the world by the tail. But after a premature end to what would have been a promising career in professional football, JD wants nothing more than to raise his daughter and enjoy the life he has now. And he surely never thought he'd ever see Bethie Grace again. Now he's faced with her everyday as they work side by side restoring and cleaning the old house in order to ready it to sell. But the rambling old Victorian isn't the only thing rattling with memories. Elizabeth finds that she can't concentrate with JD around. And JD has trouble forgetting the heady effects of her kiss, even if it's been fifteen years since he last held her in his arms. Their long ago passion sparks back to life and consumes them both, each unwilling to look toward the future. Past hurts and betrayals stand in their way. That and JD's vow never to get married again. But as much as he tries to keep the two halves of his life separate, he finds himself breaking all his rules for Bethie Grace McGee. Elizabeth has plans for her future. She's waiting for a loan to buy her very own French bistro on the edge of Hollywood. But JD's kiss makes her second guess her decisions and think about staying in Texas. Forever.

he end. It's not a romance book that I could predict what was happening next, because it did have a few surprising twists and turns. I really enjoyed reading Take Me Back To Texas, but the author was excellent in bringing forth important thoughts we all should consider. We cannot go back and change the past, but learn from those mistakes and move forward. Don't run from them. What will Elisabeth (Bethie Grace) McGee and J.D. Carmichael do? Author Amy Lillard wrote an excellent book. I highly recommend reading Take Me Back To Texas. It's Book One in the Loveless Texas series and I'm looking forward to reading Book Two. I received a complimentary copy from the author in exchange for my honest review. This review is one hundred percent my opinion.
Welcome Home, Bethie McGee is the first book in Amie Louellen’s series Always Texas. Elizabeth McGee returns to Loveless, Texas after inheriting her grandmother’s house. The last person she expects to see on her return is her long lost love JD Carmichael. They haven’t seen each other in 15 years and now she sees him every day since he is the contractor hired to fix up her grandmother’s house. Will their new found passion survive past hurt and betrayal? Will JD break his vow to never marry again? Will Elizabeth give up her dream of owning a Bistro in California? I immediately fell in love with JD and Bethie Grace. Amie Louellen has a knack for creating lovable characters and for writing a love story that is both steamy and romantic. I highly recommend this book and its inspirational version Take Me Back to Texas.
