He was a bit of a neanderthal. I usually like those types but he sort of came across as being a bit too cock sure of himself and entitled to anything he wanted.

Lucky is the hottest bachelor in town. One of the rich locals has her sights set on him but he has no desires for her or marriage. While stopping by the bar on his way home he comes to the rescue of an out-of-towner, Devon, who is being hassled by some local jerks. Devon isn’t happy to have this local boy being all macho for her sake. Lucky doesn't see it as being macho but instead as second nature (his mother taught him- you look out for the opposite sex). While these two are together, right after he saves her from the bar thugs, there is a fire set to Lucky’s family’s business that the investigators believe he is responsible for setting to collect the insurance policy. Devon has skipped town and given Lucky a false name making it hard to track her down. When Lucky finds her his world is rocked because of the secret she she is harboring. Regrettably that secret is what makes her reluctant to be his alibi. She's his only alibi. Texas! Lucky unfortunately underwhelmed me. It may be that this book is 24 years old or the plot was too cliche for me. I’m not sure but the drama surrounding this couple barely held my attention. Devon kept bringing up her "responsibility" that would have been an easy to fix but instead she drug it out and made it more than it needed to be. I’ve read a couple of Sandra Brown’s ‘newer’ romantic suspense books and I’ve enjoyed them. So when I saw the audio for this one offered at my library I figured I’d give it a try. It was listed as a romance and out of sheer curiosity to see how Ms. Brown would write a purely romance book I check it out. After reading this book I’ve decided I will stick to her “newer” stuff.

Great book, excellent narrator, and a nice story based down south, as the accents of this smooth narrator showed well. As I’m new to this author I’m not sure what her reputation is, but I’ll keep my eye out and see what comes next. I'm just not sure of the reason for the exclamation mark after Lucky in the title!

Today Sandra Brown is 67. In 1990 - when this book was initially published, she was 42. I don't 42 is too old to produce a great contemporary romance, in fact, I think age is irrelevant, it's all in the mindset. I'm gonna go out on a limb and say maybe Ms. Brown's mindset is very traditional. As in ancient, really. The way the hero talks to every woman, well, really the way he talks to everyone is just plain old-fashioned and stereotypical of the crappy reputation associated with east Texas in general. I'll be the first to admit, the stereotype lives on still in east Texas, but it's no way near the kind of hero I want to read about. It also doesn't help that the narration of the audio book is among the worst I've ever heard, and the narrator just adds to the problem by making the accent horrible and degrading, but really, the words are there, so I can't blame the narrator entirely. "Lucky" Tyler thinks he's the cock-of-the-walk and everyone, save his younger albeit obnoxious younger sister, Sage (who also has her own book) and the heroine, Devon Haynes, who is soo militant feminist from the beginning, yet not really, because he secretly just wants someone to love her, and as soon as Lucky admits he does, she crumbles. The plot is silly, Lucky needs her to give him an alibi for a questionable fire at his family's business. The guys who did it are blown off by the cops, feds, Lucky, Devon and everyone else for being TOO obvious. Um, in the real world, if it looks like a duck, walks like a duck, it must be a . . . GOOSE! Seriously, that was just one of the many lame plot points in this book. The reason why Devon won't help Lucky clear his name is because she's married! But not that it matters, because she still slept with him, twice!, and still wants him, but feels like trash because even if her husband is a guilty con who tricked her into marriage to save face and never once used his conjugal visits with her, she must be true to him. Big time lame! She can stand by her convict husband, but will not do the right thing and stand up for Lucky and clear him in the eyes of the law? That is just inconsistent and stupid on so many levels, it makes me seriously hate this heroine. And of course, Lucky is facing serious jail time, but all he can think about is getting into her pants, and never mind it's ruining his family's reputation and business, one that is seriously on the brink of failure. Oh, and when he finds out she's married, something which initially disgusts him, because he's oh-so-righteous-with-good-Christian-morals, he continues to pursue her, and in fact brag that no woman can resist being Lucky! The man-whore wanna be bad boy thing was way over the top, but we're suppose to believe he is a good guy at heart because he won't curse in front of his momma, the momma this country boy still lives with?? How attractive is that? No real reason is given for him still living at home, but I assume it's because momma cooks and cleans around him, and coddles the stupid bastard. So why 2 stars instead of one? Two reasons save this book from being a total waste of time. First, the 'villian' for the first 2/3 of the book is Lucky's current girlfriend. Susan is supposedly a real b*tch, and when Devon asks Lucky what he sees in her, his answer is basically because Susan is the only girl in town not to have put out for him. I like Susan instantly for this. Also, she is one scheming demon! I love that she puts Lucky in a tight spot and offers to save him from a felony charge, if he'll put a ring on her finger! The only reason she really wants him to prove to others that she can nail down the man-who-can't-be-tamed and he'll be a feather in her cap! One way I think this book could have been saved is if Susan was the one who set the fire. Instead of going for the obvious, having little Miss Susan Perfect Everything commit a crime to get what she wants would have worked better. In fact, for a while I thought the author might be going this way, seeing as how Susan admitted she was out of the house the night of the fire, and she frequently sneaks out of her parents' house, and she claims she was looking for Lucky, who was in bed with Devon. But no, Brown with the obvious idiots for the crime. The other part that redeems this book just a little is when Tonya dies, and we feel Chase's heartbreak. I'm not happy Tonya dies, in fact, I think it's shitty. It's how the author gets Devon and Lucky together, because they have sex the day before Tonya dies, but Devon asks him to leave because she HAS to be faithful to her husband. Then Tonya dies and Devon comes to comfort the family, and Lucky tells her 'Life is too short!' and she agrees. End of problem! That part is lame. But the heartbreak Chase feels for the loss of his beloved wife and the baby they had just found out about is very well written. It actually made me feel like crying for just a second, but the scene wasn't long enough, and Lucky and Devon were around and they just ruined it. It could have been achingly beautiful, but instead it was just a glimpse of good writing, in an otherwise bad book. Do yourself a favor, unless you love the stereotypical Texas jerk that some authors seem to think readers love to read about because they look like studly alphas, when really they are just overgrown cavemen (Lucky even refers to himself as one), then avoid this book like the plague! It's not worth it!

She wouldn't even thank him for risking his life for her. When she walks out of the bar, he follows and, well, a hot one night stand - then she disappears. Lucky was at a loss as to why. On his return home he finds that a fire has destroyed the equipment building and he falls under suspension for setting the fire. The beautiful redhead is now essential for his freedom. But, Devon Haines has secrets of her own and doesn't want to be found and is not going to willingly be Lucky's alibi. When Lucky finds her, she is torn between what she should do and what she wants, which is more of Lucky. Together they find the Lucky's enemy, now all that stands in his way is Devon's secret.

    2.5 stars, rounded up to 3-stars cuz I sorta set up a low expectation for SB’s early 90 or 80’s books:/ Like Tyler family Supporting cast Lame Devon is self-contradictory. Her reason for refusing to help Lucky is ridiculously LAME. The storyline has no edge. The characters are old-fashioned. On the positive note, I started Sandra Brown books four months ago and Texas Lucky was already my 17th read. So far, I haven’t dnfed any of her books whether it is new or old:/

    One of Sandra Brown's earlier books and reads more as a Harlequin style romance than the twisty heart stopping suspense of her later novels. Nevertheless an enjoyable read with a heart stopping cliff hanger to be resumed in Book Two Texas! Chase.

That is what he kept telling himself but he was awfully persistent and after he did find her he just couldn't keep her out of his thoughts. Devon knew that she needed to stay away from Lucky. She couldn't be with him, ever! She also couldn't ignore the fact that she needed to be truthful about where he was during the night in question. Every time Devon and Lucky were together they could feel the raw passion that was burning between them but there was something bigger between them that kept them a part and as the story unfolded between them they would have to choose which road to take and neither road was going to be easy. I loved reading Texas! Lucky, it had all the right elements to a romance but there was a twist at the end that was absolutely heart breaking and very unusual to have happen in a romance. Despite that, this is a romance story that I would recommend!

    SB is one of my favorite authors, and I decided to reread this series since I remember loving it back when it came out. I remember Texas! Sage! stood out as my favorite, but I wanted to read all 3 of them again anyway. There are definitely some things in the book that show the times and date it a bit, however, I still thought it was a fun read, though I can see why I loved it more back when I was in my teens and was really into the old-fashioned, arrogant caveman type. Haha! ;-)

    I listened to the audible version of this book read by Colleen Marlo. First of all, her voice was OK for the narration, but she could not do a southern accent to save her life. I found myself distracted by her fake Texas accents and really could not even enjoy the characters. I thought Lucky was a hot headed moron, and Devon an idiot. Perhaps this might be one I just should’ve read the book, and maybe I would not have been quite so annoyed with all of the characters.

His family business is in the crapper and he doesn’t know what to do about it. The last thing he needs is a damsel in distress in need of rescuing but he can no more ignore the pretty- altho out of place- woman getting harassed by two local scuzzballs, than he would if his own sister were being hit on- so rescue her he does. Only it seems the little lady isn’t much interested in his help. On a social experiment for her next article in the paper, Devon Haines is more than frustrated with the self-imposed “white knight” who comes to her “rescue” at the dive-bar she finds herself in, in the middle of the day. Still, she tries her best to evade the ensuing disaster about to fall on her by the ruckus he caused with the two jerks who hadn’t let her alone since entering the establishment and leaves as unobtrusively as possible. But avoiding the local town’s biggest hell raiser is harder than it looks. One night stand later, she beats it out of town as quick as she can, hoping to never see him again. As much as she wants to forget that night- and one Lucky Tyler- she finds herself smack dab in the middle of his life once again when, falsely accused of setting fire to his own property, she becomes his only alibi. Of course, she’s got secrets of her own and, attracted tho she may be to the quick tempered charmer, she must soon make a decision between what’s best for her- and what’s the right thing to do. I love this old series by Sandra Brown for its entirety. Her backlist books are a major comfort read for me and I’m glad I revisited the Tyler Siblings… once again! :)

I first read this book 20+ years ago and really liked it. I thought I'd revisit it and listen to the audiobook. Colleen Marlo does a good job as the narrator of this story. The story itself felt dated. Lucky comes off as obnoxious and self-centered. He is a jerk with white-knight syndrome. He feels he has to save the damsel in distress. Lucky also has a hair-trigger temper that he can't seem to control. But Devon was worse. She was a so-called feminist that would fight for women's rights, but wouldn't stand up and tell the cops that she had spent the night with Lucky and was his alibi. Why??? Well, she couldn't tell him. We had a whole scene with her saying she couldn't tell Lucky why she couldn't come forward. I wanted to scream. When she finally does tell him the reason (but doesn't fully explain), it just sounded ridiculous. Too much melodrama for me but I did enjoy the way they figured out who had actually set the fire. My rating: 2.5 Stars.

The female lead took a bit of warming up to. She is a well-developed and likeable individual, but some of the choices that she made were a little skewed. The conflict between needs, desires, and morals is quite poignant here. Neither is content with the status quo but neither will break their code of ethics (too many times). It was a bittersweet thing to see. As a whole this was a great read that really kept me coming back for more. Now, off to Chase’s tale, and then Sage’s.

    This put a smile on my face, which was exactly what I needed. Is it a profound story? No. Is it old school? Yes, but not to the point of it being rapey. Does it have faults? Yes. One of them, in my opinion, is the unnecesary setup for Chase's story through Chase's POV. But, to me it's a sweet, light romance which does deal with some issues with woman's rights that where relevant when the story was written.

    This is my first Sandra Brown novel and I have to say that I enjoyed it. Although some people shelved this under romantic suspense, which was misleading. It had a little mystery, but it was pretty predictable, not what I would call suspense. The romance between Lucky and Devon was cute! It was a nice entertaining read, and I will be reading more from this author in the future!

    Two stars because it was a quick, easy read. But the story is really pretty dumb. Guy tries to save a girl from two neanderthals in a bar and ends up in a clusterfuck of trouble with his business. He cheats on one girl to persue the one he saved. And whatever happened to Susan Young. Was she mixed up with the two neanderthals?

    A good read but nothing to sing and dance about! The suspense of who set the fire was laughable and couldn't believe Lucky and Devon was so stupid and they took so long to work it out.

    This book has more going for it. It has a large and loving family. This first book of the Tyler family saga is about the younger son Lucky. He’s a womanizer and a hothead. He finds trouble every time. This isn’t overly complicated but a nicely told story.

    Tyler attracts two things. Trouble and women. Devon is swearing off two things...Trouble and men. So as one might imagine, when Fiery Devon and Steamy Tyler meet up they find that even reason and good sense can't keep them apart. Trying to keep themselves out of trouble in life and love, they both learn that resisting one another isn't in the cards, but surely their hot romance will only lead to more trouble. A tall dark and handsome stranger with a cowboy hat and a cocky grin walks up to you and Tyler attracts two things. Trouble and women. Devon is swearing off two things...Trouble and men.

Trying to keep themselves out of trouble in life and love, they both learn that resisting one another isn't in the cards, but surely their hot romance will only lead to more trouble. A tall dark and handsome stranger with a cowboy hat and a cocky grin walks up to you and drawls out a hello, what do you do? If your answer was *swoon*, then you're not dead! Though Tyler came off as a bit macho at times and maybe a bit pushy even, he was still easily lovable. His intentions, though usually sex-driven, were pretty selfless most of the time. He's the kind of guy that gets you singin' "Save a horse, ride a cowboy." Devon's life choices aren't exactly smart...but I felt that Sandra Brown made them relatable and allowed for the reader to be sympathetic. I'm curious though, how is it that all of these romance novel heroins always get themselves in a bind? And I don't mean in bedroom...but in life. They're always trapped in some loveless relationship or poor life choice, in need of rescue and a good "roll in the hay". I really wouldn't mind seeing a strong female lead not in need of rescue. We'll see, I've only read a small selection of romance novels, maybe I'm just missing those ones. I don't mean to sound picky...I get that romance novels are suppose to be less about substance and more about sex but...um...why is that again? Is it so hard to write both into a story? I don't even need the physical act, just the fabulous sexual tension between characters that brings you back to the first year of your own relationship. As crazy as it sounds, that's what I look for in books like this, remind me of the feelings of fresh and fabulous first love. I've been with my husband for seven years now, we're still in love but sometimes I like to look back on where we started out so many years ago.

    Lucky Tyler wasn't looking for trouble, but that's just what he found. When two local men started harassing a woman from out of town at the local hook up bar, Lucky couldn't help but intervene. After all, it was the right thing to do. When his intervention didn't even land him a 'Thank you', he decided to follow the woman and demand one. Well, that's what he told himself he was following her for. The truth was he found her attractive. Using his good looks, charm, and a touch of guilt, he managed Lucky Tyler wasn't looking for trouble, but that's just what he found.

When his intervention didn't even land him a 'Thank you', he decided to follow the woman and demand one. Well, that's what he told himself he was following her for. The truth was he found her attractive. Using his good looks, charm, and a touch of guilt, he managed to talk his way into her hotel room. It was his ability to sweet talk women in or "out" of things that had earned him the nickname Lucky. He was "lucky" with the ladies. What started out as a simple quest for a one night stand, however, had the potential to turn into a mistake that could cost him everything. For the night they were together a crime was committed, and Devon will be the only one who can account for his whereabouts and clear his name. Problem is she mysteriously disappeared without a trace. Lucky is confident, a little cocky, and very cute. I just adore how he gets a little crazy when he's looking for Devon and can't find her. No, it's not just because he wants her to testify on his behalf. He unwittingly is falling hard for her, and it was delightful to see him lose his cool just a little bit. A guy who's not used to giving chase is always fun to watch when he finally does. Great chemistry between the two and a most enjoyable read. I think I may be seeing a trend with Ms. Brown's books. Her men seem to be molded after those guys you'd love to have notice you, but seldom ever do. Hmmm.... I think this will require further investigation by me, and I will need to read more of Ms. Brown's books. I know it will be a sacrifice on my part, but that's just the type of person I am. *chuckle* I gave this one 4 out of 5 roses. Thank you Ms. Brown for sending me this book.

    Even though Lucky Tyler got his name because he was lucky with women, he was also taught that women were to be protected and respected no matter who there were or where they were. So when he saw a woman being harassed by two men in a local bar, he automatically stepped in to help her. She didn't appreciate his interference and didn't even thank him before leaving the bar. Lucky followed her out of town to get a "thank you" from her, or so he believed.

Lucky followed her out of town to get a "thank you" from her, or so he believed. Actually, he was attracted to her and used to getting any lady he wanted. He expected to hook up with Devon for a one-night stand but it didn't quite work out that way. He did spend the night with her but was so injured that he just spent the night in bed with Devon looking after him. We then find out that a crime was committed that night and Lucky was accused of committing it. His only alibi was Devon but she had disappeared. I loved how Lucky tries everything to find Devon so he can clear his name once she testifies on his behalf. It is funny to see a man who always "gets the girl" fall for "the girl" but she doesn't want him or any man. He doesn't know how to handle it because it has never happened before. It was good to see the attraction between the pair and how they worked it out. I really enjoyed the story and highly recommend it.

    I won this book on a Goodreads giveaway. It took me a while to pick it up and read it. I received it along with “Breakfast in bed” and “Send no flowers” and with two signed bookmarks and a signed photograph of the author. First of all, I must begin with: this book shows a big improvement in the author writing when comparing with the other 2 books that were sent. The reading is easier and the characters well built. Maybe it helps that it has more length so the plot can grow slower and stronger. It’ I won this book on a Goodreads giveaway. It took me a while to pick it up and read it.

Maybe it helps that it has more length so the plot can grow slower and stronger. It’s obvious that the author has an attraction for hairy chested guys. I must say that I did enjoy reading this book. I usually don’t read this kind of book in a contemporary scenario so I was surprisingly pleased. I would welcome more books of this author like this one at any time. I felt that the story was well built and envolving. Leaving a curiosity for the rest of the trilogy. I would be open to reading more books by this author if there were like this one.

I don't know what the other books in the series are, but, if I can get them I will. I'm curious what will happen!!!
