Starting a brand new series is always tricky. You have to line up all of the elements, introduce all the characters, produce some charm and warmth and then give this first entry a full story for the readers to latch on to...A big task.

Monica Tillery presented us in Sweet Texas Kiss all that and a bag of chips.
She gave us a terrific location and three brothers who are a tight-knit group. They have been there on the ranch and land helping and doing w

Sweet Texas Kiss is the first book in a 3 book series written by 3 different authors. They are all standalone, but this one introduces the three brothers who are in for the shock of their lives, when their father passes away and does something totally unexpected. For reasons unknown to them, he's gifted away part of his estate to three young women, all parts that the men in question expected to inherit themselves. In this story, once the background has been set, it's Gavin who finds out that his ...more

We begin the Sweet Texas Secrets multi-author trilogy with Sweet Texas Kiss which is Macy and Gavin’s story. Two people who find themselves in a place neither expected themselves to ever be, but both hurting for different reasons and trying to reconcile the past with their future.., whatever that may turn out to be. All that you’d really need before picking up this story is in the Cover Description, but that won’t give you the emotional impact that events and life hav

I loved this story! Jack Cooper raised his three boys after his wife died when they were young and even though he didn't have to worry about money, he raised them to work hard and not take things for granted. When Jack became ill, he discussed things with his sons and they all thought they knew what the will would reveal, but were they surprised! Jack gave each son something, but it was not at all what each expected. This story we meet Gavin, the oldest, who took care of his father when he becam ...more

This was a curious read for me. There were parts I loved and parts that had me reduced to skimming. Parts that I loved the characters, and others that had me extremely annoyed with them. One of the great things about this book was the storyline. I love the concept of three guys not getting what they felt was their birthright. Not just because they are spoiled or privileged, but because their father always said they would be getting these things. In fact, all three brothers seem pretty down to ea ...more
I received this arc from Tule Publishing in exchange for an honest review. This is the first book in a 3 book series with each written by a different author. Book one introduces us to the 3 Cooper brothers. Their father recently died and the book opens with them at the will reading. Each brother learned that their long promised thing from their father was not in the will.

Book one focuses on Gavin. He is the town veterinarian. He moved into the family home to care for his dad and was expecting h

I started this series intrigued by the general plot about the three brothers and the mystery behind their father's last will. Although the first chapter pulled me in, I could never really warm up to the two main characters, Gavin and Macy. I can't find anything wrong with the book itself, I was just never really hooked enough to swoon over the hero or connect with the heroine, and I found it a bit slow at times.
The change in their attitude, especially in Gavin's, felt a little rushed. One day he

While I was drawn into this book and finished it, I had some issues with the story line. First, Gavin was a jack ass for a good majority of the book. His change of feelings gave me whiplash and happened way to quick for me to believe. Secondly, I had an issue with how depression and grief were dealt with in this book. Some of the wording showed the authors lack of understanding of depression, and for once I would really like for characters with mental health issues to get counseling! Finally, th ...more

Sweet Texas Kiss is the first book I remember reading written by Monica Tillery. What a attention grabbing beginning with the surprise will reading. It was as unexpected for me as it was for the sons of the late father who had been so close to this offspring in life. It is as if he has some divine insight that no one else could understand or value.

This is the story of two very different people, Gavin and Macy, who were best friends in high school, with Gavin never acting on his serious crush on Macy.  She then left for Nashville with their mutual best friend, Toni, to find fame and fortune. Veterinarian Gavin feels that Macy has stolen from him so many things that meant something to him that when she returns to Sweet Ridge, he can't find it in himself to even be civil to her.

Upset by the death of his father Gavin and his brothers were surprised when the will was read. They were told by their Dad that they would each get something they wanted. Gavin would get the house, Grayson would get the company and Gage would get this piece of land that his Dad had bought years ago.

When the will was read none of the boys were left what they were expecting. Macy got the house, not Gavin. Charlotte got the property not Gage and Becca got the company not Grayson. The men were upse

The one thing Gavin Cooper had hoped for, after his father passed away, was the family home. At the will reading, Gavin finds out the house was left to someone else, Macy Young, a former classmate, Gavin’s old crush, who had moved to Nashville to be a country singer. Now Gavin needs to find a way to get Macy to sell the house back to him so future Coopers can grow up there. But Jack Cooper just might have had a plan of his own when he wrote out his will. Maybe he knew Gavin and Macy would be goo ...more

The Cooper boys have just endured the loss of their father and then come time to read the will they find their dad has willed the things they expected to other women. For Gavin, the house he expected to inherit was willed to a girl he once competed with and also blamed for a tragic loss he endured, Macy who is now a famous country singer. Macy having endured tragedy is kind of lost and having to deal with Gavin’s resentment isn’t quite what she had in mind when she returned to Sweet Ridge.

After the death of their father, the Cooper brothers are surprised to learn that he has changed his will. Gavin thought he would inherit his family home, but instead it is left to Macy, who has not been in town for years. Gavin and Macy haven't got on since the death of their mutual friend, so what was his Dad's up to when he changed the inheritance?

Looking forward to reading the rest of this series.

I received an ARC of this book in exchange for a voluntary and honest review.

Confusion is the key word for this novel. Worlds are rocked into confusion when a father’s will is read and the contents are not what all parties thought it would read. It forces Gavin to face Macy and reckon the past with the future.
I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

A few type-o's and some of the sentences weren't grammatically correct, but I enjoyed this book.

I'd have liked a few more clues as to what the glasses meant/where they came from.

After the passing of their father the Cooper boys were expecting to receive all they had been promised, but Jack seemed to have something else in mind for his sons. Instead of leaving each of them what had been discussed over the years, they each received an odd item with a cryptic note attached, while, what they felt was their birthrights, what they really expected, was left to three different women outside of their family.

This first book in this new series is off to a good start. It was well written, easy to read and had interesting characters. After the death of their father, the Cooper boys wondered why they had to meet with their fathers lawyer to go over the will. They have always known what they would inherit and thought it a waste of their time. When the will is read, the Cooper boys are livid at the changes made without their knowledge.

At the beginning of the book I honestly wasn't sure what to expect. Just like the Cooper brothers I was angry and frustrated at the reading of their father's will. I kept thinking why you would start a story this way...then it got REALLY good.

I love the fact that the book is set in a small town. It obviously has an impact on the way the characters think and act, and how they act impacts the town as well. It becomes Macy's haven in a world that has gone awry since her friend's death. And for Gav
