I'm just a girl who loves reading more than life itself. A day without a book is a day gone wrong, in my opinion :) Looking forward to meeting new people, talking to them about books and spreading the bookish love!
Heaven, Texas is the second book in a series of standalones centering around the players of the football team The Chicago Stars.
This second book in the series did not disappoint. It featured great, human characters, an engaging plot and a great relationship.
I was very surprised by this book because unlike the first in the series, it had no football in it. Now, how's that possible? Easy - Bobby Tom was forced into an early retirement due to a severe knee injury. I did not see that one coming.
Speaking of Bobby Tom... the guy's the main reason I didn't give this book 5 stars. Now, let me explain. I loved him - I really did. He was sweet, and charming, and kind of cocky but not in a really bad way.
But 80% through I got really angry with him - the guy was so slow with his feelings that I waned to punch him, and the things he thought about Gracie until he realized he loved her pissed me off. He compared her to the sex-trophies he usually dates and found her lacking. WTH, dude? You should be ashamed! ARG, I really wanted to strangle him at this point. He has such a messed up view on life!
Gracie is one of those characters I can't help but feel super connected with. My heart literally...
