The holidays are coming and with the due date of Trace and Pauline’s baby getting close, Kieran, Jubilee and Juan head to Texas for some family time. They don’t realize a winter vacation away from Vancouver will change their lives. Kieran and Jubilee get caught up in a strange Marshal case that Marco, Sam, Sean and Nicholas are working that brings them into contact with dangerous criminals they’ve faced before.

It isn’t all work. Marco and Sam’s relationship is moving forward and taking that next step—a house.  And love of family grows strong and expands with the birth of a new baby. It’s also a time of professional possibilities when an offer is made that could change their lives. But it’s also an occasion of joy as good friends and family spend a special holiday together.

The newest release in the Orgasmic Texas Dawn series is entitled Joy. The characters in these books are tightly intertwined, so I recommend the books be read in order.

I’ve enjoyed the other books in this series. They’ve been fun and entertaining, and Joy isn’t any different. It’s filled with great characters that have progressed in both their relationships and personalities. It’s been nice to see them change as they’ve matured and moved forward with their lives. The authors have done a great job with the ongoing relationships of these couples and bringing them all together for the holidays in Joy is a treat for long time readers of the series. 

There’s a lot going on in this fast-paced book. The authors juggle multiple plot lines with lots of twists as the guys battle their foes. Yet there’s still opportunity for each couple to have time set aside for them, but it’s integrated smoothly into the overall story. *Well done authors.* I have to admit that as much as I love all the couples, some of the best scenes revolved around Pauline, her delivery and how the guys react to the new baby. This book, while it has danger and suspense, is still a feel good read because everyone is together again.  Watch for Reunited—I believe it’s the last in the series.
