Publisher's Summary

This exclusive box set collection contains the first three books in the best-selling gay romance series, Spruce Texas!

Football Sundae: It's not every day your football-star crush asks to taste your big sundae special. All I want to do is go to culinary school, become a dessert chef, and let go of this small, dusty town-if only it would let go of me. 

Born Again Sinner: Cody Davis is gonna make a sinner out of me.

Yes, I know exactly who he is: the wounded soldier at the end of Willow Street. Intimidating. Devastatingly handsome. Muscular body chiseled from stone. Deep dark eyes that dare you to come near. Attitude for days. And I just became his caregiver.

Heteroflexible: Jimmy Strong is one devastating son of a gun. He's gorgeous, stubborn, a dancer, fiercely protective of his loved ones (to a fault), and intense.

He can steal your heart with his infectious laughter...and break it with a single glance of his stunning, rich brown eyes. I ought to know. He breaks mine every day.

Contains mature themes.

Best series In a while

Maybe I'm partial bc I'm from Texas! I loved all 3 stories, though the third one had me all twisted up and i never wanted it to end. These 3 excellent stories with fine narration are an absolute bargain. Book 3 will leave you breathless!

loved it

this is an absolutely beautiful series that you must read. I wasn't so sure when I started it but fell in love about 30 minutes into the first book. I was skeptical with the last but believe me you simply must open up and hear this beautiful series!

Southern Accents make a Difference

Overall the stories are great. However, the southern accents in the first book are so offensively bad that I had to skip it. Books 2 and 3 were much.

Texas RomanceBox set

The small Texas town I grew up in wasn’t like Spruce, but I believe a small town is a great place to start your living. I loved books 1 to 3 of the series. Will investigate other books by Daryl Banner.

Herero Who?

I loved this series. With only one more book to go in the Spruce series, I have to say that Heteroflexible was by far my favorite. Excellent story and character development.
Perfect narration.

Sometimes the characters in this Spruce series can be downright unlikable but Daryl has a way with countering that. His writing is brilliant and evokes emotion and yes, I found myself often shedding a tear. The characters we love not to like have suddenly endeared themselves to us.

No one is more capable of writing a steamy sex scene than Daryl but sometimes I would like to see love develop before the steamy sex scene. You know. Those three words. It would make the sex a little less lusty and a little more loving. That aside and thus far, Daryl is my favorite MM romance novelist.

If you’re looking for a place to start with this genre, the Spruce series is perfect.

Worth the Wait!!!

I've had the first book in this series, Football Sundae, in my wish-list for maybe a year and for some reason I just didn't buy it.
But then I saw this 'box set' with the first 3 books in the series and bought it instantly!!! And I'm So Glad I did!!!!
Daryl tells an amazing story - or 3 - filled with laughter, tears and everything in between!!!
These are some of the most 'real' MM fiction stories I've ever read (listened to), with characters that are well written and believable, with issues that don't seem 'overly dramatic" (some stories have issues just to have issues and I didn't feel that way with these stories). And the language used by this author somehow adds to the 'realness' of the stories and characters.
The duo-narrators also helps to bring the characters to life, the voices are just different enough so that you know who's speaking at the time, and the 'southern twang' of the narrators is spot on!!!

If you have been considering these books but haven't yet bought them, I highly recommend this collection! Nearly 30 hours of pure, unadulterated storytelling for one credit - how can you go wrong???

Love this set!

All the feels. Such richly developed characters and the plot is the driving force. Not just a bunch of sex scenes put together with a few words.

Brilliant series

This was a brilliant series of books (1-3 in a package). I hadn't read anything by Daryl Banner before but will be looking for more now. I enjoyed books 1&2 but Hetroflexible was amazing and one of my favourite M/M romances so far. Some points were very relatable but I loved how the relationship developed between Jimmy and Bobby. I can't wait to start the next book.

Dissatisfied with this serise.

I have enjoyed all these narrators in other works but I'm sorry to say they couldn't pull me into these stories. I found them superficial and the romances having a borderline unhealthy lack of communication among other things.

Book 1 - Football Sunday ⭐⭐⭐
A teen romance aged up for sex, alcohol and confessions of life long devotion in my opinion.

Book 2 - Born Again Sinner ⭐⭐
Not Yet Finished. Im not religious but I think if you have to talk someone out of their beliefs to get them into your bed(or shower in this case) then there is something definitely not right somewhere.

Book 3 - Not yet read.
