Book Description

Book One in the Lone Star Cowboys series

Logan Tanner shook the red dust of West Texas off his boots at the age of eighteen and hasn't looked back. When his father has a stroke, Logan is temporarily forced to return home and take over the family ranch. He still feels responsible for his mother's death when he was twelve, and has never gotten over the guilt. Now he's faced with having to protect his twelve year old daughter Katie and his sister and her friend Megan Flynn. It's nearly more than one man can handle.

Megan Flynn immediately falls in love with Morris Springs, Texas, population 976, when she delivers Logan's runaway daughter to his doorstep. Raised as a city girl, Megan dreams of owning a few acres, raising a few champion Australian Cattle Dogs, and starting a small-town veterinary practice. The only thing between her and her dream is one stubborn, reluctant cowboy with an overprotective streak as wide as the West Texas prairie. But her stubborn streak is a match for his any day. And she's determined to prove it.

Blame it on Texas is a story of the power of love to overcome any adversity, the strength of family and friendship, and the joy that comes with being part of something bigger than yourself.

4.0 out of 5 stars ;o) December 1, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
Logan has left home since he was eighteen and hasn't return since. Now that his father has suffered a stroke, he has returned home to help care for him. While back home, he is worried about his daughter Katie. Megan stumbles upon Katie, who has run away from home. When she returns Katie to her father, she falls in love with Logan and his family.


This was a mellow and sad at times story. I think the author did a great job building a story around this Texas family. Though the story is about Megan and Logan's growing relationship throughout the story, it is also about Katie and the family. Katie is the daughter of Logan. Katie definitely was a child that was very determined, and had her issues dealing with her parents. Logan has issues, but I think everything for him came full circle towards the end, which includes Megan.

Though I mentioned sad moments, this shouldn't be discouraging, as everything brought the story together that gave me different stages of emotions that I went through.

Storyline: GOOD
Enjoyment: GOOD

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Read - I Loved It January 28, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Blame it on Texas by Tori Scott is a delightful and enjoyable story.

Logan's father has suffered a stroke, so Logan returns home to tend to his dad, after being gone since he was 18 years old. Logan is a single parent of Katie who recently ran away from home. Katie runs into Megan, who brings her back to her dad and immediately, the attraction between Megan and Logan materializes.

This is a wonderful, warm and loving book, with lots of romance and sex. The storyline is captivating and a real page-turner. I highly recommend this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Moved to my fave book from this author!!! November 25, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
I loved this book it was wholesome yet steamy, the characters were engaging and a total page turner straight to the end! I felt emotionally invested in this story from the beginnning and was sent on an emotional roller coaster throughout. This author managed to write about serious life and relationship issues just as seamlessly as steamy sex scenes that raise your body temp a coupla degrees ;) I have read everything I can get my hands on by this author and have never been disappointed so I would gladly recommend this book to anyone that enjoys a good solid read! Get it, read it, enjoy as much as I did!

2.0 out of 5 stars Blame It On...Logan. February 28, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Romance novels aren't my favorite but I sometimes find ones that have believable, well-plotted stories and dialogue with great characters. Blame It On Texas had this....almost.

Other reviews have laid out the plot so I won't bother. It gets a little soap opera at times but does a good job of moving the story and adding a little action. The dialogue is adequate, only a few places I did a mini cringe of the "who talks like that?" variety.

And the supporting characters? Awesome. I liked Megan's friends and loved Charlie, Katie, Carol and especially Blue. But here's my big problem (and the reason the rating lost two stars):

Logan, the romantic lead, is a jerk! Actually, I'd love to call him something else but I think Amazon would block me. Honestly though, he spends the whole book sulking about his so tough childhood and taking it out on everyone around him. Add to that his absolute chauvinism against women. Believe me, I love the strong male archetype too, but this borders on ridiculous. He is constantly angry that "women" won't stay safely ensconced in the house while he does all the physical work and can "watch over them."

Also, the romance? Barely there. If you're looking for cute or hot moments between the leads, don't hold your breath, you'll die long before you get there. It's like he treats her like crap for 90% of the book and then BAM! Happily ever after for no apparent reason other than they're both good looking and straight.

2/5 stars. And now that I'm thinking about it, that's being generous. Yay for free books.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Read! February 22, 2012

Came across this book and got it because it was free. Glad I did! It was an easy read and I found that I couldn't put my Kindle down. It has opened my eyes to a genre of books that I don't typically read. I look forward to reading more by Tori Scott!

3.0 out of 5 stars Decent Enough Story April 10, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
3.5 Stars. This was a very good story. I had my doubts at first with the heroine being young, which is always a sticking point with me. It didn't help when there were a couple of instances of being in the daughters POV either. But eventually the characters started to grow on me. By the middle of the story, I felt like I was a part of their family and even the community.

That said, I did have issues with the heroine towards the end when she was willing to give up all of her hopes and dreams and go crawling back to the hero, begging him to take her back. One of those "something's better than nothing" situations that I always found to be pathetic and desperate.

I also, had a problem with the pacing and redundancy at the end. Not to the point of skimming, but very tempted to do just that. It seemed like all the hero could dwell on was his guilt for the past... for chapter after chapter after chapter. I wanted to scream "Just get over it already!" And that is the sole reason for the lower rating from me. Overall, I'm glad I read this book. It had a great cast of characters and okay pacing. I probably wouldn't read it again, but I'd recommend it to those looking for a --somewhat-- light-hearted read.

More About the Author

Tori Scott is a former Golden Heart finalist, a two-time Rone Award nominee, a finalist in the International Digital Awards, and a semi-finalist in the Best Indie Books of 2012. She lists several publications among her accomplishments, including a featured Christmas story--The Christmas Wish--in Woman's World magazine.

Tori loves reading, swimming, photography, traveling, and especially writing. When she can talk him into it, she loves riding on the back of her husband's Harley. She's an animal lover, and though she's now down to one dog, at one point she owned cows, chickens, goats, rabbits, ducks, four dogs, and a mule named Doc. You'll likely find animals of one kind or another in her books.

Tori was born in West Texas,and she loves to use it as a setting for her cowboy books because the people who were born and raised there have a code of ethics that makes for great heroes. It takes a tough man or woman to deal with the tornadoes, dust storms, hail, blizzards, rattlesnakes, and drought that are so common in the Panhandle. But they handle whatever comes their way and become stronger for it.

Tori's husband is the inspiration for many of her heroes. He's a country boy who can build a house, ride a Harley, handle a rifle in defense of his family, and wade into a pack of fighting dogs to save her precious Blue Heeler. What more could you ask for?

Check out Tori's full list of novels and novellas, and be sure to watch for her next release, Book Six in the Lone Star Cowboys Series.
