4.5 Kickass Blacktop 'Cowgirl’ Stars!! Another winner in this awesome series! August Fletcher…YUM!
Tanna Barker finds herself in Muddy Gap Wyoming, after a devastating accident and the traumatic events that followed. It’s left her with a paralyzing fear of the animals and the sport she loves so much, horses and barrel racing. She finds herself back with her friends, and is temporarily employed at the Split Rock lodge while she decides what to do with her life. August Fletcher, the local large an ...more
I didn't realize how much I enjoyed this one until after I finished it...and then kept thinking about it!
World champion barrel racer Tanna Barker (36) had been introduced in a previous book in the series, as well as the hero, veterinarian August "Fletch" Fletcher (I always wanted him to get his own book!). I wasn't that enthralled with Tanna at first (seemed a little too slutty for my tastes), but boy did she grow on me by the end of the book! It's a testament to ...more
I got it today!!!!!!
Omg. I know it took me awhile to read this book, I was just trying to savor it!! I LOVED IT!!! I think LJ could write a series on just the Muddy Gap Lillie's!! They r too much. I lo Ed the interaction between Tanna and Fletch. I think this is one of my new favorites of the BTC Series!!
Tanna you broken soul....momma wanted to wrap you up in a big ole hug!
I loved how these two, who didn’t even know each other’s name, grew to be friends, then lovers and finally soul mates. When you love something, set it free. If it comes back…it’s yours. If it doesn’t…it never was!
Lorelei James writes amazing stories about flawed people who have amazing sex lives and work it hard to get their happily ever after.

If you are not a newbie to Ms. James’ work, Turn and Burn will not disappoint you. August “Fletch” Fletcher and Tanna Barker’s story starts out with a bang and will leave you grinning throughout the entire book.
From the beginning of the book tall, dark, and sexy Veterinarian Fletch knows what he wants, and that is t ...more
She stumbles on August Fletcher, a veterinarian in a hot one-night stand but after that explosive night of chemistry, both of them are wondering if this could be something more. Fletch soon fi ...more
I read the first 200 pages and the last 4 chapters. Not enough story. Characters not interesting enough. I’ve really enjoyed some of her other books but this one felt like she had nothing to write about. If you’ve not read this author before, note that her Cowboy books have erotic and graphic sex scenes.
The books I liked were Cowgirl Up and Ride, All Jacked Up, and Raising Kane.
I read an Uncorrected Proof - Not for Sale.

Review copy provided for an honest review
Ok I’ll admit it.. I’m totally fangirl crazy over Lorelei James. I may even have a small girl crush on her. She totally sucked me in from the first novella I read by her, and this latest release Turn and Burn is beyond freaking fantastic. I literally sat down to read it and could not put it down till I finished. I was so drawn into the lives of both of these two people. I have to say one of my bi ...more
Former barrel racing champion Tanna Barker is looking for a fresh start. After a bad accident on her horse, Tanna is afraid to get back on the saddle. Tanna’s afraid of a lot of things really—horses, men, relationships, her former life in Texas. So she's packed up and is temporarily moving to Wyoming to work at the Split Rock, a resort that’s owned by one of her friend’s husband. And what does Miss Tanna do her first night in town? She hooks up with a random (and tota...more
Fletch is.....wow, what isn't he? He's ...more
As much as I've loved Lorelei's Rough Rider series, the Blacktop Cowboy series has seriously grown on me and while Bran and Harper (Saddled & Spurred) continue to be my favorite couple in this series and Bran is still my top man, Dr. August "Fletch" Fletcher has given him a serious run for the money. More than that though, I loved the hard road to a relationship that Fletch and Tanna had to travel to get to their happily ever after. It proved that Tanna is the tough Te ...more

She suffered a horrible accident during one of her barrel racing competitions that left her badly injured and her horse having to be put down. She hasn’t been able to get close to a horse since and she’s dealing with nightmares and guilt that she let her horse down. While she’s in Muddy Gap for the summer, she’s t ...more
I said it once, and I'll say it again....Lorelei James is one of the best Western Romance writers out there. She puts so much heart and soul in to her characters that they just jump right off the pages and in to the hearts of every reader. You will fall in love with Tanna and Fletch instantly! I must admit that this is the first Blacktop Cowboy book I have read, and now I am kicking myself in the ass for not starting this series sooner!

Favorite Quote: “Ride me, cowgirl.”
Tanna Barker was at the top of the rodeo world with three world championships under her belt and an endless supply of willing cowboys to ride. That was until a rodeo injury sidelined her and she lost everything. With her family gone and her reputation in shreds, Tanna heads to Muddy Gap, Wyoming for a chance to lick her wounds and regroup. When her sexy one night stand shows up in the daylight lookin ...more
Fletcher could not get this woman out of his mind after their one night of love making. He gets back to work and goes to see one of his fri ...more
Fletch doesn't have time for a relationship, but after seeing his friends settling down he feels like something's missing from his life. But again, his practice as a large animal veterinarian doesn't leave him much time to ...more
Two years have passed since the events of One Night Rodeo and Tanna has had a hard time of it up to and including an accident that ended both her career and her horse's. That's how a nice Texas girl ending up in Muddy Gap, Wyoming looking over the crop of cowboys and wanna be cowboys while licking her wounds. Enter Dr. Augustus "Fletch" Fletcher who seems to be able to cure what's ailing her most. Neither is looking for anything long term but after the best one night stand either has ev ...more
I have to be honest. At first, I did not like Fletch at all. After Tanna agrees to a no- names one night stand with him, he gets all super douche on her and possessive. I mean, seriously dud, she didn't tell you her name and you AGREED to that. Then because you randomly felt something differ ...more
In Turn and Burn (a reference to barrel racing) our heroine Tanna Barker is a three time world champion barrel racer, at least she was until an accident put her out of commision. Now she is physically healed but still is still having other problems gettin ...more
Tanna is one of those female characters that I just love to read about. She is strong yet still very female. She tries to hide how scared she is but those who know her best can see her pain. I think she is one of my favorite characters that I have read this year.
One thing I loved about the plot is that the romance felt real. It wasn’t love at first sight and bam they are in bed together. No they took t ...more
Fletch didn't leave much of an impression on me from the earlier books. Maybe because the hardworking veterinarian's appearances were so brief. Now that I know him better, however, I love him! He's the perfect combination of smart, sweet, funny and commanding. Oh yeah, a ...more
D+, inferno, mild kink, contemp, 368 pages
Tanna was hurt in a barrel racing accident and hasn't been able to get on a horse again. Unfortunately, that kind of leaves her floundering as barrel racing was her life. She agrees to help some friends out with their resort over the summer. Fletch is an over worked veterinarian. But when he hooks up with Tanna, who he calls 'Sugar Twang' (she shall forever be 'Sugar Twang' in my head), he feels the lon ...more
Tanna's personal life has been less than stellar; the death of her mother and her home being sold combined with a possible career ending injury. She is second guessing herself and her abilities to ride again. August Fletcher spent one night with the barrel racer and cannot stop thinking about her. He soon learns that if ...more
