Heaven, Texas

Heaven, TexasGracie Snow worked as an associate producer which quickly turned to personal assistant to Bobby Tom. This meant Gracie had to spend a lot of time with him which only led her to want him more, and easier to fall in love with him.

Bobby Tom Denton was used to getting things his way but with a career ending injury he felt stuck. Doing the movie was not what he truly wanted but it was something to do. He will be surprised when his attention starts to drift to Gracie.

Heaven, Texas is the second book to the Chicago Stars series by Susan Elizabeth Phillips. I really liked this second book. There is something with how Phillips writes the story that has you wanting to read from start to end. Its funny that I am liking this series because throughout the book I am getting frustrated with how the characters were written especially Bobby Tom. His character was a womanizer to the extreme. He liked woman to look good and not think. I was kind of appalled at his behavior at times and wonder how Gracie could even fall for him. Though Gracie’s character was one of forgiving. She cared a lot and was naive but she had a backbone. I liked how Gracie changed and became a stronger version of herself throughout the book.

This town treated him like a hero to them. He was the celebrity and it was ridicules with the women who wanted to be with Bobby Tom. Towards the end a situation will occur which will show a nasty side of Bobby Tom. I was pissed off at how he was reacting as he was only thinking about himself. At that point you have to wonder if a happy ending would happen but Phillips will give a happy ending. There was a moment that had me thinking that ending was given a little too freely but that was Gracie’s character.

There is a parallel story that is being told which is with Wayland and Suzy (Bobby Tom’s mom). This was not a love story between them. There was passion but it was combined with hurt that drifted between them. Phillips makes sure that the couple’s problems will be fixed and get their happy ending, which made me smile.

I am reading the third story next.
