Reviewed for herding cats & burning soup.

Cowboys! I can never say no to a cowboy. It's a weakness, I know. And I'm totally okay with that. lol And, oh, Texas Hustle was fun! The quick of it is that Porchia needs to get out of town to avoid some drama from her past. And Darren is kinda in a male auction for charity and in a wild moment (and kinda to save his skin from the grips of another bidder) Porchia bids on the man. Without even realizing that her prize? 10

Texas Hustle is a thrilling read with adventure on every page. The romance between Porchia and Darren is sizzling and I for one have no clue how she held out so long. I was enthralled by the storyline and despite this being number six in the series I did not feel as if I had missed a thing, but was intrigued enough to put the first five books on my TBR list. I highly recommend the story of Darren and Porchia as well as the entire Montgomery clan.

Texas Hustle is a book filled of fun, humor as two people finding their way to love overcoming issues of age gap and a ex who wants revenge. I wouldn't call him an ex but someone she wanted as a boyfriend, everyone wanted him and for one night she got her wish which changed her life forever. I totally enjoyed this plot of winning Darren in an auction in hopes of putting off her ex until she could work out what to do about him. Things do not go as planned in keeping Darren at arms link as the aut ...more

Texas Hustle is the 6th book of the Texas Montgomery Mavericks series by Cynthia D'Alba. I swear this series just keeps getting better and better. There are some books that I liked better than others, but these last 2 have been perfection. I love this family and in this book we get a peek into what's going on in all of their lives now.

Darren Montgomery is everything and I mean everything you could want in a guy. He's sexy, smart, sweet, hardworking and easygoing

Cynthia did it again! I Love her books and this one is just as great! I loved the action and growing romance in this story! I wanted to jump in and help her out!

Her parents sent her to Whispering Springs when she was still in school to hide that she had an arrest record.

I found this to be a pretty solid romance for both characterization and storyline. I liked both main characters, and I enjoyed the authentic look into their Texas lifestyle. From bachelor auctions to campfires to horseback riding, it was easy to see why Porchia would enjoy spending time with this very real, supportive Montgomery family especially after her own family hid her away to protect their social standing. Add in the dramatic storyline of blackmail and arson, you've got a fairly well-pace ...more

Another great story by one of my favorite authors. I love this series and I can't wait to read the next book. The Montgomery's are such a fun family and I've loved every book in this series.

Now if Porchia can get only get past the fact that she's older then Darren they might have a chance at a HEA.

This is book 6 in the Texas Montgomery Maverick series. I received this book as a ACR for an honest review. I will admit I am a little bias because the main heroine of the story is Porchia. I loved this story, Porchia Summers has started over and only wants to live her live in peace and run her bakery. Darren Montgomery has been trying to get Porchia to take him seriously and go out with him. When she wins him at a charity auction this is his chance to win her. This is a wonderful story, I recom ...more

I have read every book in this series and I love seeing Darren get his HEA. Seeing him in previous books and how great his character was it was just a matter of time. His relationship with Porchia was great to see develop, from them just being friends to them going on the family camping trip and building on their feelings. I love this series and the Montgomery family is so wonderful together. Thank you Cynthia for another great read!!

I am a fan of the Texas Montgomery Mavericks series and enjoyed this next installment. I love a romance with a strong heroine who is strong because she has to be. Porchia is one of those heroines. She doesn't know what she is missing in a family until she is flung into the Montegomery family after winning Darren Montgomery in charity bachelor auction.

It was a hard to book to put down and fits right in with the series.

I received an advanced copy of the book for an honest review.

Love this book, The love that Darren has for Porchia just shines out through everything. The way her family treated her was cruel, but they were family and she does the right thing. You don't want to miss this great story. Very well written.

Texas Hustle is the sixth book in a contemporary romance series about the Montgomery family, starring Darren and Porchia. It struck a good balance of romance and sexiness. The writing was easy to read, while the plot flowed smoothly with some unexpected twists and turns. There were a couple of unbelievable moments, but nothing t

Texas Hustle by Cynthia D'Alba is book six of the Montgomery family books. This is better than the old TV show Dallas; all the drama except with a family that you can truly fall in love with. As Porchia’s family and past come back to haunt her, this baker relies on a Montgomery to help her.
The description states that Porchia Summers and Darren Montgomery are different, which they certainly are but not so much opposites. This is a story of self-identity while also being one of hot romance. It is

Texas Hustle by Cynthia D’Alba is book 6 in the Texas Montgomery Maverick series. The story begins with Porchia Summers whose good life in Whispering Springs, Texas is disrupted by a dark past. Disturbed by the threat, she outbids in a bachelor auction and wins a cowboy. She accompanies him on a 10-day camping. Darren Montgomery, on the other hand, has had his eyes on the town’s sexy, sweet baker for quite a while, but she declines citing that she is too old for him. Now her sudden interest in h ...more

Porchia's bakery is a popular place in town, but on this day she gets a very unpleasant surprise. Her ex from many years ago wants retribution for having spent years in jail. She needs time to think about how to deal with this problem. The solution comes in an unusual way at the bachelor auction.

Saving Darren from Sarah Grace was Porchia's pleasure, even though she feels she's too old for Darren.

Camping with the entire Montgomery clan turns out to be a chaotic, fun, romantic, drama filled time w

Cowboys are my jam…

And Darren fit the bill quite nicely, thank you! This friends to lovers story was sweet and fun, full of laughter and family. The way that Porchia and Darren got together was a treat as the auction antics made me laugh out loud. Camping, revengeful exes and a new-found love meant lots of frolicking in the woods, cowboy-style…

So much to like about this story though there were a few things that held me back. The romance was mostly sweet with a few steamy scenes (not a

They just keep coming and these hot Montgomery men are something else! Porchia is in Whispering Springs living a quiet life until someone in her past catches up to her. Darren Montgomery wants her bad and she keeps telling him no thanks. Until she buys a date with him at a local charity auction. A week camping with his family should be long enough for her past to go away. I have to say, I like their idea of camping – in cabins with running water, fireplaces, bathtubs – just my style!

If there is one thing I can count on from this author is a sizzling story, with a hard fought HEA. Not having read the first five books in the series was not a worry for me, I knew this author would provide enough backstory to allow me to get up to speed on the previous Montgomery's and their stories...I was not wrong.

From beginning to end the chemistry between Porchia and Darren is sizzling. I always love the friends to lovers stories, and with Darren providing Porchia with her need to escape

I enjoyed the book, but have some complaints. At times the heroine was to stupid to live. I mean if someone is blackmailing you over what happened when you were a juvenile, why wouldn't you go to the police? She does get it together, but not until after someone is hurt. The hero is smart, hunky and sweet *sigh*. There is some background drama from another book; it doesn't add to the story and is just a distraction that I wish the author had left out.
It is a good story about biological and found

Reading anything by this author is an epic experience. Like your going on a picnic with good friends and a great family that loves you. This whole series is a must read to get the full flavor of it all.
Cynthia D'Alba has some of the best stories I’ve ever read.. Romance, friends and family. The characters are believable and easy to like and the stories are very well written. I would recommend this series to anyone who likes a good romance. A+

Again this story pulls you in from the start just like the others in the series. A well written and perfectly paced story with enough action to keep your interest. This one is about Porchia and Darren and the struggles it takes to get to their happy places. You cannot go wrong with the Montgomery family involved.

With a unique premise and a slight suspense element to the storyline, Cynthia D'Alba does a wonderful job keeping the Texas Montgomery Mavericks series fresh with her latest release, Texas Hustle.

Bakery owner Porchia Summers's past has caught up with her and in an effort to buy time to figure out how to defuse the situation, she bids on local rancher Darren Montgomery at a charity bachelor auction. Not realizing their "date" is a weeklong camping adventure with the rest of the Montgomery clan, h
