Review: Overall, this is a fabulous series filled with sexy cowboys, Texas rangers, small town doctors, drama, mystery suspense and hot mansex!
Life at Crazy Hills has become crazier, and the cowboys are misbehaving. Their worlds are turned upside down, as lust leads them to places they never thought they would go.
If you like cowboys, lawmen doctors, foursomes, super- hot sex, and loving relationships this is for you!
I left a little blurb and review for each individual book below:
Texas Rough Book 1: Lane Daniels loves his job, working as a foreman on the south Texas ranch gives him the type of satisfaction he’s always craved, but the owner of Crazy Hills ranch, Gresh Hamilton Miller the third, has woven his way under Lane’s skin, leaving Lane crazy for the man’s touch. But doing the boss is out of the question. Gresh wants more from Lane than his ability to handle livestock. He wants it all.
Lane won’t give him the time of day so he forces the issue, setting up a date that Lane believes to be a business meeting. Alone together, Lane and Gresh ignite in a flash of passion. Just when it feels like there could be something more between them, the new doctor in town, Riley, sets his sights on Lane. Riley chases hard after him, insinuating himself in Lane’s life, highlighting Gresh’s faults. But, Gresh won’t give up without a fight. Will Lane and Gresh be able to survive the intrusion, or will Riley be the one walking away with Lane’s heart? Texas Rough is the first book in Sara York’s Texas Soul series. Texas Hard and Texas Twist are next in line. Get ready to get your cowboy on and go for a rough ride.
My Review: Lane Daniels is a very good ranch foreman. Gresh Hamilton Miller the third the owner of the ranch thinks he is a lot more that a great employee. Gresh wants Lane and will stop at nothing to have him. He finally sets up a business meeting to trap Lane into a date. Lane has had a crush on Gresh since they first met two years ago but assumes him as straight and no one knows Lane is gay. He wants to keep it that way. But, he wants Gresh so bad and Gresh wants Lane and insinuates him into his life at the ranch. Will Gresh succeed in winning the love of Lane?
But wait! There’s another twist! There is a new doctor in town and he has set his sights on Lane. He will do anything to see that Lane isn’t hurt by Gresh. Will Lane choose Gresh or the Doctor? What will Gresh’s father do when he finds out Gresh is gay? Will he disown him? Will Lane lose his job at the ranch?
I’m not going to tell you. You will have to read the book. Its good and you won’t want to put it down once you start.
I thought this book was great. This book got me hooked on hot, sexy cowboys! I loved this one and will definitely be buying the series. I loved the characters and it had a strong story line with a little suspense. I loved the love story though I found it a bit gushy and syrupy, but then again I like sweet and sensuous love stories, so it didn’t really bother me.

Texas Hard Book #2: Spurned by his heart’s desire, Riley’s aching for a fight, and he finds one with Connor, a sexy Texas lawman. Attraction fires between them, but Riley walks away, ignoring the lust between he and Connor…Until weeks later he’s caught trespassing on Connor’s new property–Naked.
Connor’s tempted to arrest the audacious naked man in his watering hole until he realizes its Riley. Lust muddles Connor’s logic and soon he finds himself on a path rife with temptations. Passion twists Connor inside out leading him to share one of his deepest secrets. Still Riley’s hiding something and the lack of mutual trust may end their relationship.
Then there’s the Lane factor. Riley’s ex leaves Connor feeling threatened. Riley swears it’s over, but something doesn’t sit right and Connor needs resolve. Coming to terms with their attraction means submitting to the fears haunting Connor and Riley before they can grasp the love that brought them together.
My Review: Riley is leaving Lane and Gresh’s commitment ceremony, his emotions raw. He runs upon an accident and stops to help being a doctor. He has a confrontation with the lawman there, not only does he want to hit him, but to …well other things to him too. A month or so later Riley is taking a dip in the pond next to his property when a man confronts him. It is Connor the Texas Ranger; he hasn’t been quite able to get off his mind. Things lead from confrontation again to riley getting to… well what he wanted the last time. Things move very fast for both men but both schedules and pasts get in the way. Are Riley and Conner a match made in heaven? Are their busy jobs too much for a relationship? What about Lane and his hold on Riley? Who is Erick? Believe me if you like twists, turns, and super-hot mansex you will want to buy this and find out!
I am such a big fan of Sara York and especially this Texas Soul Series. I haven’t been reading too many westerns until this, now I am so hooked. I love the modern day setting, with realistic modern cowboys. This book was even better than the first of the series, and I couldn’t have imagined that happening, as the first was awesome.
Omg this was so fast paced so many twists and turns, all the characters these and the ones from the first book are so wonderful and exciting. There is nothing else I can say, except how good this book is. It made me laugh, it made me smile, it made me gasp, made me say Oh My gosh, so many times!! I am on pins and needles for the third, fourth and hope there’s more!
Recommendations: I highly recommend this book to everyone that loves a good M/M romance. Especially if you like, cowboys, Texas Rangers (law enforcement not the ball team), twists and turns, interracial coupling, super, super down and dirty mansex. Did I say hot cowboys and hot mansex?
Texas Twist: Book #3 For Erick McTavish, meeting the handsome young cowboy, Sterling White, is the first sign he may be able to put the pain and the flashbacks from his brutal abduction behind him for good. Too bad Sterling doesn’t seem to return those feelings.
Determined to remain straight, Sterling hates the walking, talking temptation that is Erick, yet he can’t seem to stop his desire to experience his first kiss with a man, but not just any man, only Erick will do. The tattered remains of Sterling’s denial are stripped away when fate steps in and wickedly hot passion ignites between the pair, leaving Sterling unable to imagine a life without Erick.
Meanwhile, the bonds of friendship between Gresh, Connor, Lane, and Riley are tested when dark desire leads them down a dangerous path twisting their relationship to the max, leaving all four men wondering if any relationship is possible after betrayal.
My Review: Erick has just recently been rescued from terrorists. He had been held for 6 months brutally beaten and tortured. His work partner and the man he had a crush on rescued him. When he got rescued, he found that Conner had met someone and fell in love. Conner and Riley get him a job with Lane and Gresh at Crazy Hills Ranch.
Meanwhile Lane and Riley though both very much in love with their life partner/ husbands yet still have unfinished business. Gresh finds Conner very enticing and can’t stifle that urge. In Houston on a meeting Gresh finds out Conner is working there on a case. They have some friendly dinners and in a twist share a short kiss. Lane is very upset and turns to Riley. But he realizes no matter what he feels for Riley Gresh is the one for him.
Back to Erick at the ranch. He meets a young cowboy Sterling but it seems Sterling hates him. Or does he?
Wow Wow Wow! This book was smoking hot. It is book three of the Texas Soul Series but it stands alone fine. I do recommend you read the first two they are awesome but this one was even better. WOW. Once you start, you will not want to put it down. And, the name is spot on. Twists all over. More twists than a twizzler! It’s full of hot passionate mansex, great storylines, plenty of action and wow the sex and twists. Oh, I already said that. But, WOW!
Recommendations: I highly recommend this book to everyone that loves M/M action. Also if ya like Texas rangers, hot sexy rich businessmen, Cowboys, horses, Loving sexy D/s relationships, Sweet loving relationships, Ménage… great story lines, and lots of twists and super-hot mansex(lots of it).. You must read this. I also recommend you read Texas Hard ,Texas Rough first but you don’t have to but I promise if you read this one you will want to go back and read them all.. Sara York is amazing!
Texas Branded Book 4: Revenge might have been what drove Jung-Hwa Gangjeon, known as Jump, to Caldwell Texas and Crazy Hills Ranch, but something darker has kept him there. Desire is awakened his first night in town, leaving him questioning everything about his life, his past, and his future.
Finding a sexy young man sleeping on a park bench wasn’t what Bruce Long expected from his night sift as a Deputy Sherriff. But at the first sight of the man, he knew he wanted more than just a name. But getting the skittish Jump to settle enough to accept his love is harder than Bruce ever imagined. Lust and passion spin its web, leaving both Bruce and Jump branded with desire.
My Review: All I can say is Wow! If you haven’t read any of the Texas Soul Series, I suggest you start in order with Texas Rough, though these all stand-alone just fine and once you read one you will want to read them all. I loved the way this one started out with some of the character profiles.
Jump shows up at the Crazy horse ranch to get even with the man he thinks is his biological father. He believes it is Gresh because of a photo he found when he left foster care and got his mother’s belongings. At 18, he is a bitter, angry young man. Bruce Long is the deputy Sherriff and finds Jump sleeping on a bench. He is immediately intrigued.
There is a lot of story in this one. There are so many twists and turns in here, it leaves you reeling! I am such a fangirl of this series. I waited impatiently and wasn’t disappointed. The foursome continues with Lane, Gresh, Riley, and Connor. Wow, can it get hotter?
You won’t want to put it down until you are done as you go for story to story and twist after twist I was left in Awe! Oh and a huge Shocker! I sure can’t wait till spring for the fifth installment.
Texas Desire Book 5
Blurb: Gresh is on his deathbed and Lane is swimming in guilt. Will Riley’s comfort and love be too tempting for Lane with Gresh in a coma?
A new cowboy, Kip, has come to town and he’s got his sights set on one of the cowboys, but the man is straight and Kip doesn’t know if he wants to date another closet case. Winning over his new lover and getting him to open up may prove to be too much.
Tragedy strikes the ranch and everyone has to pull together, but can they outwit the crazy stalker that is after Kip and his new beau?
The fifth book in the Texas Soul Series is packed with answers, but a can of worms is opened and can’t be closed. Find out how hot it gets in Texas as Riley pushes Lane for a relationship, leaving Connor wondering if he even mattered to Riley at all.
My Review: (could be spoilers if you haven’t read the first ones you may want to stop) this one does need to be read in order after book 4
Gresh is on his deathbed. Lane’s world has crashed down around him and he has to make decisions. Jump is trying to take care of arrangements and Hamilton’s business. Jamie has stepped in and is trying to run the ranch very shorthanded without, Lane, Gresh, or Jump to help. Kip is a new man that shows up that is an old friend of Gresh’s to help with the ranch and with secrets of his own.
This is the fifth book of the series and each just gets better and better. This one has so much going on but it isn’t overwhelming. Not only is all the above going on but we also have Riley still very much in love with Lane and also thinking now he may have a chance, then Connor dealing with his insecurities knowing he may lose Riley and dealing with his loss with Gresh as well.
Plus Kip’s seemingly straight coworker Jamie, coworker is really putting the make on him if all this isn’t enough we have the mystery that Kip brings plus another tragedy at the ranch. Oh yeah lots of excitement and still plenty of hot mansex. It is sad with the tragedies going on but the new love interests and Lane’s never dying love for Gresh and dilemma of his feelings of Riley pick it up with the sigh-worthiness of it all. And the ending has me on pins and needles, counting the days till the next one!!
Recommendations: If you love modern day westerns, Hot ranch hands, suspense, and super -hot mansex you will love this one.
Texas Legacy Book 6 Again spoiler alert if you haven’t read book 5 (4-6 really need to be read in order since they all had cliffhanger endings.) Connor’s grief threatens to overwhelm him as he turns to the bottle, shoving everyone away. When Mike Jarred bangs on his door, demanding Connor join the living, Connor tells him to piss off. Mike won’t abandon his friend and stays, demanding Connor change. With Mike in his business, Connor has no choice but to get sober. But he can’t stay away from the bottle forever.
Kip fears that Jamie will realize that his trip over to the male side of his bi-sexuality is over and he’ll want a girl. His worst fears are realized when he follows Jamie, finding him at diner with a beautiful woman—worse, when Kip confronts them he realizes the lady is pregnant and she doesn’t hesitate to announce that Jamie is the father.
Lane and Gresh find a surrogate willing to have their baby. All seems great until the surrogate figures out Gresh is too ill to care properly for a child. With their baby lost to them, Lane is depressed. He cheers up only after meeting two orphan boys, wondering if they could become part of his family
MY Review: I thought this was a very dramatic and wonderful end to such a fantastic series. I love how it led into the possibility of something new on the horizon in Colorado.
You sort of get three stories in this one plus a small introduction to a new character giving us hope for the new series coming.
Story 1: is the continuation of Lane and Gresh. After all they have been through their love is as strong and beautiful as ever. Gresh is struggling from his injuries form the accident and Lane is there to support him through it all. They also decide they are ready to begin a new family and want to adopt, then Gresh decides he wants a surrogate and have Lane be the father. Everything goes smoothly until the surrogate sees first-hand how ill Gresh is.
Story 2: Is Conner. This one is heartbreakingly sad. Since Riley’s death, Conner has gone downhill with drinking himself to death quitting his job and holing up in his house. Suicide could be on the horizon f he doesn’t get help soon. (I won’t say much since this could have spoilers if you haven’t read the first five books.) Mike has always loved Connor and won’t stand by and watch him drink himself to death. He hopes he can save Connor and perhaps even have a relationship in the future.
Story 3 is Kip and Jamie from the last book.
Kip is very suspicious of Jamie’s recent actions. Jamie has been going into town a lot and acting secretive. He is afraid that Jamie still wants women since he has just found out he is bisexual. He finds Jamie with a woman in town that is pregnant and telling everyone the baby belongs to Jamie.
So as you see, there is a lot going on and I barely touched it. We also meet Grant, though barely, while Gresh and Lane are in the Bermuda’s on vacation.
I really thought this was a great conclusion with lots of dram tossed in. I would have liked to see more of Grant but I have the feeling I will get my wish.
If you like, cowboys and drama and a great series finale and have read most of this series this book is a must!
If you like a series full of drama, mystery, suspense, broken men, cowboys, secret agents, Texas Rangers, and lots of hot mansex I suggest you read them all!
