5 Plus-Big Buckin’ Stars!! One Night Rodeo comes out of the gate fast and will take you on a ride you won’t soon forget!! This is Lorelei James at her best! Hot cowboy lovin’ and a story that will make you melt!
Woohoo…this was a good one! I loved everything about this book! Kyle and Cele were made for each other. They were two halves of a whole, so in tune with one another, of the same mind, one heart, one soul, they were meant to be together!! Kyle is raunchy, sexy, sensitive, protective, swee ...more
My status updates say a lot more than my review would...I really loved Celia and I wanted her to have the HEA that she deserved. And, when I say that, I wanted her to have a cowboy worthy of her and not some used up dick head that banged her sister in law for an entire summer!
Whewwww...that off my chest. I loved Kyle and Celia together. He had much to atone for and he did his penance!
I still dislike Lainie (more than ever actually)...I puked in my mouth a bit when she tried to impa ...more

This book was an amazingly sweet and HOT read. Once again Lorelei takes a simple story line and makes it such an interesting read that it just flows and keeps us reader's completely hooked. The characters were fantastic and I loved and laughed at some of the things the H&h did in their past. The hero Kyle was a very sexy cowboy who had a very romantic streak that made this book sigh wo ...more
Another great addition. This was much sweeter and calmer than some of the past stories I have read from author Lorelei James, yet still spectacular with sex scenes that burn your retinas. The characters just seemed so normal, they worked together to build a future and run a ranch and it was hard work both in physical labor and developing their intense feeling for each other. If you like the series, you won't be disappointed.
Celia stared at Kyle lounging on the bed, admiring his wedding ring. “Wrong. We are not going to Wyoming. We are marching down to that wedding chapel right now, telling them it was a mistake, and getting an annulment.”
“No? I had a fucking head injury yesterday! You cannot believe for one second I was in my right mind when I agreed to marry you!”
“You signed the papers. With little hearts by our names, if memory serves. So some part of you wanted to ...more
One Night Rodeo is what I consider a "comfort book". Nothing wild and exciting happens, no major conflicts, just a real, believable budding relationship. A sort of boy grew up with girl, both were attracted to each other for years and never acted upon it, and then you add Vegas into the mix....
Yup. Quicky Vegas chapel wedding brought Kyle and Celia together.
I have to admit, One Night Rodeo was not what I expected. I expected a high-octane, wilder than any eight second ride situation. That is
HERO is a Performer, cocky, competitive, and has been pining for his best friend’s sister for a long time. After a drunken marriage in Vegas, he strikes a deal with her to help him run the ranch he’s just inherited, and plans to use that time to convince her to stay with him.
Loralei James has done it again. One Night Rodeo was awesome!
Feels like I’ve been waiting for Kyle’s story forever, and it was worth the wait. Kyle is my favorite Blacktop Cowboy so far: Sexy and rugged blended perfectly with sweet and romantic. He couldn’t get any more perfect. Not to say he doesn’t make some mistakes. Sometimes he’s a downright bonehead, but I love that he recognizes he’s made a mistake and is willing to apologize—and boy howdy can the man apologize. He had me almost wishing h ...more
There’s a thin line between love and hate……or is it lust and hate?
Even as kids Kyle and Celia seem to rub each other the wrong way, arguing and fighting has always been their MO. They live and breathe to butt heads. So imagine the shock when Celia wakes up the morning after a fun filled and very drunken night in Vegas only to realize they also rub each other in all the right ways, and that’s not all, now they’re……married.
What happens in Vegas, stays in Veg ...more

But after one wild, tequila-fueled night, Celia wakes up to find out she’s gotten herself hitched—to a man she never should have married! When Celia insists on an annulment, Kyle ...more
I have two confessions to make. First, I've been in love with Kyle Gilchrist since I first read Corralled. I guess that had a lot to do with the fact that I saw him as the bad boy in the series. Rough, raw and dirty. And second, I think I may have had a crush on Celia Lawson for almost as long. She's the type of heroine I love to read about!
Of course I've wanted them to have a book since the ending of book one and now here they are. I think I may say th ...more
I can't get enough of Kyle Gilchrist! Lorelei James must love this character very much, she wrote one of the most fantastic man ever. Thanks LJ for writing Kyle and Celia's story. These two deserved their own HEA.
Despite my apparent love for Kyle, this is seriously a great story. A childhood friends turn lovers kind of story and while it's sweet it's not saccharine or sickening sweet. What I really love is how this kind of erotic romance ...more
This was a really good book and I love reading Ms. James's books. Barrel racer Celia Lawson knows that rider Kyle Gilchrist is the love'em and leave'em type in other words he is a manwhore of the rodeo circuit. He is also her brother's best friend and they grew up together and they didn't get along as kids. After a night of drinking she wakes up in Vegas to find that she is married to the man when she insists on an annulment Kyle knows that he should say no bu ...more

What is there to say about Kyle, besides that is is the perfect character? He is not only tons of fun, but he is loving and beyond sweet. I absolutely loved the way he stood up to Celia's brothers for her. To go toe to toe with men that are your good friends was just amazing.
Celia is a wo ...more
This was a fun read and would serve as a stand-alone although characters from the earlier books do appear. They have little real effect on the storyline.
The only thing I truly did not like was the clueless-ness of the protagonists. At times I wanted to grab them by their throats and yell, "Would you just talk to each other already!"
I downgraded this from my rating of an erotic romance (based on the author's other ...more
This book went beyond anything I had expected for this story. Kyle and Celia were so cute together. They made each other whole, complete. It had the right amount of agnst, love and sexy lovin'. Everything I love in a book.
I hope this isn't the end of the series but if it is this was a great end!
Growing up, Kyle and Celia were always fighting and bantering each other. One would think that these two hated each other. Imagine their surprise, when they had a drunken night in Vegas and work up married. Celia was ready to request an annulment, but Kyle offered her a compromise.
Both were looking for a home to call their own. While Celia left her family ranch to barrel race, Kyle was on the circuit as a bull rider. Just Kyle’s lucky day, he inherited a ranch and a substa ...more
I enjoyed the way the whole circle of friends accepted the relationship and gave her brothers hell for their reactions. It m ...more
This book is now a favorite - what a great spicy romance - that only Ms. James can deliver! (Had the opportunity to view the cover early when Ms. James herself shared it with fans who attended the RT Convention 2012 in Chicago.)
I was hesitant to read the book when I found out that Kyle was going to be the male lead. How can the author make it all right after being introduced to Kyle Gilchrist in the book "Corralled"?? (view spoiler)[ He was part of the Menage with Hank and Lainie, and at one poi ...more
