Jack and Riley Campbell-Hayes begin a journey that will change their lives forever.

Set against the backdrop of the Double D, the cast of the Texas audiobooks face changes that won't leave a single one of them untouched.

Jack and Riley want to extend their small family of three. Their first choice is surrogacy with Jack as the father, and when all this begins smoothly both men can't help but contemplate at what point would things go wrong. After all, their lives are far from normal, and nothing is ever smooth.

Add a small four-year-old boy in foster care into the mix, and suddenly things become a whole lot more complicated.

Texas Family by RJ Scott is book 4 in the Texas series. I think you really have to read/listen to the whole series to get full enjoyment from this volume. Honestly, the first book is all roller coaster/soap opera worthy drama and every book that comes after it is the icing on top! Jack and Riley didn't have an easy beginning but I love how much stronger they become as a couple and through every book you can see how strong their love is.

The title of this book really tells you about this chapter in Jack and Riley's life. It's all about family. Both Jack and Riley have decided they want to have another child and to give Hailey a sibling. But the focus of this book is not entirely on how that happens, there's so much more going on. Of course, Riley's having to deal with issues from his dead brother still; his sister-in-law has met someone; Eden and Sean are having difficulties; Beth's decided to have another baby; and of course, when Riley and Jack decide to have a child, they go big and end up with more than one. You know, just a typical day in the life of Jack and Riley Campbell-Hayes!

In preparation of listening to this book, I bought the first three audiobooks in the series and Sean Crisden is the narrator for all of them. I loved that there was one narrator for all four books, especially since I listened to them consecutively. The narrator did a fantastic job with this story and with the characters. There are a lot of characters in this story and I really felt that he did an excellent job of bringing the story to life and providing individual voices for all of the various characters. Sean Crisden has an easy-to-listen-to voice. He keeps a good pace, brings emotions into narrating, and doesn't have weird pauses or silence in his storytelling.

This series is one of my favorites, whether in print or audio. I absolutely love following a couple throughout their life like this series does and seeing the happiness build. And, what I absolutely love, is that this author doesn't make every book after full of angst and fighting between the MC's just to have angst in the story. She brings plenty of angst into the stories, but she allows Jack and Riley to remain strong and to draw closer to each other instead of turning on each other. I will definitely listen to this audio series over and over again and can't wait for the next three books to be released in audio!

Overall: 5 stars!
Performance: 5 stars!
Story: 5 stars!
