Review - The Texan's Twins by Pamela Britton

The Texan's Twins
by Pamela Britton
Series: Texas Rodeo Barrons, #3
Genre: Contemproary Romance
Release Date: September 2, 2014

Definitely Not Daddy Material!

Jasmine Marks is focused and hardworking, and when she took a job as engineer for Baron Energies, she left behind her support network. Now, the burden of caring for her twin girls is all on her, and she doesn't have time for a dilettante playboy like Jet Baron. Besides, she needs her job, and she can't blow it by getting involved with the boss's son.

On the surface, Jet Barron is a dabbler, dropping into work one day and riding rodeo the next. But when he makes his mind up, he goes for it, full-out. He knows a lot more than anyone suspects, about the oil business, about women. And this woman needs someone to count on, which will be Jet, if he gets his way.

Overall The Texan’s Twins was a good read for me. I’m a big fan of these family saga type series and love the strong bonds between family members – whether protecting each other or giving each other the old “snap out of” it advice that is so often needed. I’m not a huge fan of kids in books, but the twins were adorable and added a nice dimension to the story, especially when it came to Jet.

I totally loved Jasmine…most of the time She was a very strong woman who was successful and smart, and even though she has loved and lost and now must raise her twins on her own, she has persevered and created a good life for her and the twins. I love that she has a very non-traditional job for a female – and that first scene between Jet and Jasmine when he thinks she is a stripper and not the engineer he’s supposed to be meeting still has me chuckling! She did tend to frustrate me at times with some of her actions though, which had me wishing she had some family of her own to tell her to snap out of it!
"You think I'm some kind of prank. An actress hired to, what? Pretend to have a meeting with you? Then strip out of my clothes?"

He'd started to get a funny feeling—like he'd walked into a room at the end of a joke. "Well, yeah."

She took a step toward him, and he would be lying if he didn't feel as if, somehow, the joke was on him.

"Tell me something—what makes you think the engineer in question is a man?"

"I was told that."

"By whom?"

He couldn't remember, but it didn't matter.

When his sister had told him to meet with their newest engineer, she'd said Mr. Marks…hadn't she?

"I don't know who told me, just that I know he's a man. All engineers in the oil industry are men, but if you want to pretend you're part of the industry, have at it. Won't matter once you take off your clothes."
Jet started out just ok but began to grow on me throughout the book. It was nice to see him grow and change, and I loved how he was with the twins. He did frustrate me a bit with how long it took him to come around and realize the type of guy he really was, but once he did it was easy to fall in love with him.

Overall this was a good read that just fell a little bit flat for me, perhaps because both Jet and Jasmine got me a bit too frustrated at times which for me, took a bit too much out of the romance. I did enjoy the writing style of Ms. Britton so I will definitely look to try out some of her other books as well as look into the other books in the Texas Rodeo Barons, which are all written by different authors.

I received a copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
