This book has sad times and funny times. When his wife died it was hard not to cry with him But when Marcie came in his life, things changed. Reading this book made me actually feel like I was the main character. When Marcie is getting the lewd calls, Chase steps in to help. This story has laughter and action which is good. I recommend this book to everyone.

I like to read books that carry one storyline into another book. I like how the story told how chase felt after his wife and child was killed in a car crash in the 1st book Texas! Lucky with a whole book about Chase. It would have taken away from Lucky in the 1st book. But Chase is such a strong character that he deserved his on book. It was written in a way that you wanted to cry with him and at the same time slap him. I could not stop reading it. I will read it again.
Publishers Weekly, 1990-12-21 This slick contemporary romance focuses on a second member of the Texas Tyler family, the clan first seen in Texas! Lucky . It is a switch on the hoary scenario of boy loves girl, loses girl, wins girl: in these feminist times it is the girl (here a woman with her own real estate agency) who does the loving, the losing and the winning. Marcie Johns has loved Chase Tyler since grade school, but, being the class brain, knew she didn't have a chance with the handsome boy who called her Goosey. Years later, she has been retained by Chase and his wife, Tanya, to find the couple a house. When Tanya is killed in the car Marcie is driving, the bereaved Chase goes on the skids and it is Marcie who sobers him up, gets him back into the failing family oil business, offers a loan, proposes marriage. Marcie's machinations are misunderstood by Chase, adding a modicum of interest to an overly formulaic plot. The novel climaxes with Marcie and Chase in bed, where ``the pleasure was immense. Overwhelming. Ecstasy eddied around him in shimmering waves that matched the tempo of her gentle contractions.'' Apparently Brown intends to immortalize the Tylers in a trilogy, which should please those seeking hard-bound counterparts to the Ewings of Dallas. (Feb.)
