The Heart of Texas - R.J. Scott I feel like I have to justify my poor rating of this book because so many people ostensibly loved it. Well, I didn't. I didn't love it A LOT. I think it's safe to say I even hated it. Unrealistic premise aside (because, really, if all premises were realistic we'd have no literature) the plot was just a mess, it was such a clumsy soap opera from start to finish. I'm actually having trouble remembering the plot because it was so stupid that I immediately forgot it as soon as I put the book (or rather, eReader) down. What I do remember, however, is that all the characters were caricatures and not one single line of dialogue struck me as being a thing that any real person would say. I've never watched a single episode of the show Dallas, but I suspect this is what it would look like if it was about gay people.
