Come heck or high water, Gracie Snow is determined to drag the legendary ex-jock Bobby Tom Denton back home to Heaven, Texas, to begin shooting his first motion picture. Despite his dazzling good looks and killer charm, Bobby Tom has reservations about being a movie star — and no plans to cooperate with a prim and bossy Ohio wallflower whom he can’t get off his mind or out of his life. Instead, the hell-raising playboy decides to make her over from plain Jane to Texas wildcat.

But nothing’s more dangerous than a wildcat with an angel’s heart in a town too small for a bad boy to hide. And all hell breaks loose when two unforgettable people discover love, laughter, passion — and a match that can only be made in Heaven.

I have this book in paperback, but hadn't re-read it since I got an ereader, so when it went on sale, I bought it. I just finished re-reading it, and can't believe I forgot how fun, and funny, and sweet this story is. If I had to sum it up in one word, I think I would choose charming.
What a fun book. The devotion to the game has kept a lot of players tied to their teams, their team mates from I ends forever and some of their injuries causing them problems forever. I can not remember a major player retiring without something causing problems for them for the rest of their lives. After being sports heroism is difficult to go back to living without the praise and glory
A little goofy start, but funning interactions and sex attractions and give little details about previous friends. Liked the book for how both characters faced their flaws and challenges and made changes to accommodate the challenges tha life throws at you.
Bobby Tom and Gracie are both irresistible as well as the small town life. The ups and downs are poignant as well as funny. I can read this over and over and it still makes me smile and cry.
So many laugh out loud hilarious moments throughout! Not just cutesy stuff, but laugh out loud funny! Wonderful hero and heroine and side characters. Loved the secondary romance, too! My favorite of SEP's yet, taking over "Ain't She Sweet's" spot there.
I absolutely loved this book - I received it yesterday and read the whole thing in one sitting! It is wonderfully written with believable characters and a good story line that flows very well. In some aspects it reminded me of another one of SEP's books - Nobody's Baby But Mine - where the hero is an ex-footballer that is well loved by his home town and the heroine is something of an inept social outcast. Both the heroes were injured and sidelined in their careers and were both out of sorts about what to do with their lives after football. But they are different on many levels as well and its worth your money to buy both of them!
I was captivated by Bobby Tom - especially his intense sex appeal. I also especially loved the fact that he really came to love a person that was considered plain and unattractive. The ending was wonderful too! Read this book if you want to laugh out loud, if you want to cry and if you want to see two different well deserving and well suited people to get together!
Reading Heaven, Texas (and its predecessor It Had to be You) was a bit like reading a history of romance writing. The characters were almost cliché, although I imagine that wasn't as true when these books were originally published, and the storyline a bit unbelievable, even knowing SEP's penchant for writing some outrageous scenarios. Even knowing all of this, forgiving all of this ahead of time, I found the characters' actions and behaviors inconsistent with the setup the reader is given. Worst of all, the climax of the story was confusing and completely unsatisfactory. I agree with another reviewer that the secondary plot concerning BT's mother was in some ways much more interesting. As much as I hate to give one of my favorite authors a poor rating, I have to be honest. Sigh.
