Lori Wilde has created a rich and wonderful story about the charm of small town life combined with the power and passion of first love. Delicious! — New York Times Bestselling author Robyn Carr

Bad boy Jesse has loved good girl Flynn since high school.
Life hasn't been good to Jesse and moving toTwilight didn't improve it. Instead it got him 10 years behind bars. Now Jesse is back. Flynn is engaged to the sheriff who is the son of the man who got him falsely convicted.
Flynn never stopped loving Jesse.
Now they need to find each other again while not getting Jesse's parole revoked by a jealous Beau.
This story is HOT and one I couldn't put down.
The pace is leisurely and the tone is uncertain with a character oriented storyline that has some action and some steamy scenes. The characters are well developed. I loved the ending where Flynn reveals her secret to the knitting club. That was priceless. Now you have to read this to see what it is! Enjoy!
But there is no excuse for not doing a quick Google search to get some facts straight. Many, many Texans mangle the Big Bend National Park name to “Big Ben”, dropping the “D”. But you don’t write it!! And a National park is federal land. That means state game wardens aren’t the first call on a wild animal attack or sighting. Nor are they “stationed” at the park. They are in fact 110 miles to the north. At present, that call would be answered by Big BenD park rangers and the Park’s wildlife biologist. State game wardens can become involved, but they aren’t the first call and they would never have made that initial contact. Secondly, I don’t know where this Sam character thinks he’s gonna get a gun as a Boy Scout on federal land. That Scoutmaster needs to be checked out if that were anywhere close to reality. That was a totally ridiculous statement. Third, Rangers wouldn’t have made a lethal shot at the animal unless someone’s life was in danger. They’d have done EVERYTHING possible before shooting a mountain lion, who are in the park, but the likelihood of a loud group of boys seeing one is nil. Because most of us, after dealing with tourists for a living, like the animals so much more than we like the average person.
So, Lori Holt is a lazy writer. I just can’t get behind that. Really good writers do their research. This was maybe two paragraphs in this book. But, it completely turned me off and it is what turns me off her books every time. She’ll make some statement no real Texan would ever make, or she doesn’t take the time to even KNOW one of the most beautiful and most surprising parts of the state.
The story is cliche. Bad boy who isn’t really bad, comes back to town before good girl, who doesn’t want to be that good, makes a big mistake with the good guy who really isn’t good at all. We’ve all read the story before by writers who are better and who can add the fun background tidbits that make these books worth reading.
Ms Holt, I know you live in Texas, but you are going to lose your resident card if you can’t get your Texas facts straight. Bless Your Heart.
I absolutely loved the closeness of all the characters in the story and how they all had their own story to tell also
I am looking forward to reading all the other stories in the Twilight, Texas series by Lori Wilde. Once you start reading her stories, you want more!!
