Eileen's Thoughts

Texas Forged by Eve Gaddy, book one in her Texas True series had me returning to Whiskey River, Texas for Chantel and Gabe’s enjoyable story.

World famous metal artist, Gabe Walker is stunned when the woman he’s loved since high school walks into his workshop to ask him for a date. Except, it’s with another woman; a woman he already had a bad date with. Now if it was with Chantel, he would have no trouble saying yes. He couldn’t act on his feelings in high school since she was dating his best friend.

Chantel is gun shy about dating after two awful and failed relationships. She only just returned to Texas, determined to pick up the pieces of her life and help her sister with her boutique.

As Chantel and Gabe rebuild their friendship they realize the sizzling chemistry and major attraction building between them, intensifying into an extremely hot affair. When unexpected consequences occur from their affection, Gabe is all in, ready to spend his life loving Chantel.

However, she isn’t there yet; wanting to be loved for herself, not because of the situation. Gabe will have to convince Chantel that she can trust him and his love for her; despite being let down by other men in her life. After all, they weren’t Gabe.


Ms Gaddy wrote a wonderfully, sizzling and emotional story that is definitely not to be missed. She provided a tale rich with off the charts, sizzling chemistry, intense emotions, and charming secondary characters giving Chantel and Gabe a path to receive the love and future they desire. I highly recommend Texas Forged to other readers.
