Texas Forged by Eve Gaddy: Chantel Chandler and her sister Angel have a lingerie shop in their hometown of Whiskey Creek, Texas. Chantel had moved away after high school, but is back home for good. Her sister has the idea that they can be matchmaker and help their friend Marie out. Angel decides Chantel should be the one to go visit Gabe Walker who would be just perfect for Marie.
Chantel dated Gabe’s best friend Randy in high school, but lost touch with Gabe after she moved away.
Gabe has recently moved back to the family ranch and has his workshop in a special building. He is a metal artist who has gained some fame and even done pieces as gifts for his town. He has no interest in dating Marie, but Chantel was his secret crush in high school. He didn’t steal his best friend’s girl then, but he sure would be interested in getting to know Chantel a lot better now.
Chantel is more than a little hesitant to get involved because she is still trying to get past some relationships. How can you resist a man who works with fire all the time and “lights your fire”, too?
The cover photo of Texas, Forged has Gabe looking even better than my imagination did. He may not be a Texas cowboy, but he is surely swoon worthy. Who doesn’t love a man who is strong, but sweet underneath.
Chantel can’t resist Gabe’s charm and looks for long. She may be “gun shy”, but who can resist someone who has always cared for her?
The author has created a love story that bursts into flames with plenty of heat. At the same time, she shows there is much more than pure physical attraction. Most people truly want a deeper relationship, if they are honest with themselves. If you want a tale that will heat up your day and cause you to sigh, then I recommend that you put this novel on to be read pile right now.
