5.0 out of 5 stars sexy scorching read, 7 Dec. 2013
This review is from: Turn and Burn (Blacktop Cowboys Book 5) (Kindle Edition)
Turn and Burn (Blacktop Cowboys). Lorelei James.
Review from jeannie zelos book reviews.
I love romance with a sensual spicy edge and Lorelei does that so well. Of course as a horse lover/rider I enjoy ones set in an equine scene too so this book is a double whammy for me.
Tanna is a great lead, having been injured while riding also I understand her fear of getting back on - or even getting close to a horse. I was never in her league being a happy hacker rather than competition orientated, but the clammy, choking, paralysing fear is the same whatever and Lorelei writes that so well - I felt the fear with Tanna. I like books that tell the story through dialogue, have characters that feel real and allow me to feel "in" the scene, and here I could envisage so clearly what was happening. Hot ans sexy Vet Fletch was a fabulous character too - that man certainly has a way with words - and actions!
I really enjoyed this story, loved meeting all the characters and they were a great mix esp the "older" ladies. That scene where Fletch has to PTS the elderly dog of one of them had me really choked. For many of us pets are family and we grieve for them just the same. I loved the people, enjoyed the world setting created - as a UK resident the rodeo/barrel racing world is one I can only imagine but Lorelei brings it alive. The book was a great read, kept me glued until the end, and the sex scenes were scorching and sensual. I've only one tiny criticism - and being a real drama lover in my romance it is a personal one that most readers won't worry about - and that's the highs were terrific, and the lows where Tanna is struggling with her career and current phobia were perfect, but when it came to a relationship low between her and Fletch I didn't really feel it - I like to have a sad part where I can wallow, and although I felt there were things they needed to overcome they weren't really deep enough to make me feel moved to tears. Sucker that I am I enjoy the downs as they make the highs so much sweeter.
Anyway - a great read, at £5.17 for 342 pages.
Stars: four and a half, just that bit more :( and I'd have gone five.
