She once led him around by a string. Now he's the one holding the reins.

Georgia Hotchkiss swore wild horses couldn't drag her back to Sundance, Wyoming. So it's ironic she's forced to take a rodeo PR job in her former hometown right before her ten-year class reunion. The only thing worse than facing her cheating ex-husband and his pregnant wife? Showing up to the reunion w

FANFUCKINGTASTIC
Yes I swore. In bold and Italic SHOUTY CAPITALS. I will do it a lot more in this so read no further if you don’t like it.

I mean come on I just read the goddess/fucking genius/ amazeballsness that is Lorelei James latest book.
I have been waiting to get my LJ's Rough Riders fix for what feels like FOREVER!
So when I woke up and turned on “Chase” (my kindle) and saw that it was finally there it was the BEST.DAY.EVER.! I abruptly took myself to the beach and parked my ass to g

3 stars! First half…2 lackluster stars, second half…4 okay now we’re getting somewhere stars!

As much as it pains me to say it, this book was…meh! I love the Rough Rider series and Lorelei James’ writing, but the first half of the book was a little silly, repetitious and just so boring that I nearly stopped reading. Lots of sex and lusting, nearly every chapter, but no heart to the story. Somewhere around the middle of the book, when the McKay’s, and I mean all the McKay’s, made their way into

This story basically followed the same plot line that over half of this series has followed.

HOT MCKAY MAN: Looking for his next score because that’s what McKay men do. They have sex. A lot.

HEA GIRL: Walks up to Hot McKay Man and notices his what? That’s right, black hair and blue eyes. And his muscles.

HOT MCKAY MAN: (to HEA girl) Whoa there darlin’. You look like you might need somethin’ from me. I can help you with whatever you need but you will be in MY bed every night in return.

3.00 Stars - Contemporary Western Erotic Romance .

This one was too predictable. Not much thrilling or exciting or nail-biting going on around here. Somewhere along the line it had nothing new to add. The blurb says it all. You pretty much understand and know where things were going and where it’ll all end up. But, having said that, Ms James is a superb writer who knows how to put words in the right direction to make a less than ordinary story into a work of western art.

#13 read and I still love the series as much as I did when I first started. These books continue the story of the infamous McKay family while focusing on an individual cowboy. I love that the characters from the other books carry over and you get to see what all our favorite rowdy cowboys are up to. I loved getting to know Tell & Georgia. I knew he would be a favorite of mine just by the glimpses in the other books, and I was not dissapointed. As usual, Jame's characters are well developed, ...more

I love this series and this was no exception! I loved Tell right away... even though he is a man-whore! Many series that have this many books with so many characters start to get dull and lackluster, but not the Rough Riders! Ms. James knows how to keep it fresh & feisty!

I attempted to read Kissin' Tell (Rough Riders #13) by Lorelei James this weekend. Ugh! I DNFed it. The "hero" was a man slut who couldn't remember the names of the women he slept with. The heroine was a horndog who was pissed at the hero for treating her with respect and consideration instead of boinking her the first chance he got. Ooooooo-kay. I hated them separately. I hated them together. I hated the storyline (a repeat of the same old "blackmail you into sleeping with me" thing that I'

Georgia and Tell sitting in a tree, K-I-S-S-I-N-G”…..if you remember that little ditty from when you were a kid and how much fun you had singing it with your friends, then the latest installment of the Rough Rider series will have you smiling and feeling just like a kid again! Lorelei James did not disappoint with the fun-loving Tell McKay!

I had so much fun with this book. It was light-hearted, fun, filled with HOT McKay sex and, of co

Review posted: Happily Ever After - Reads

Tell was the scrawny, self-conscience kid growing up. He had a huge crush on Georgia, but she was dating the popular guy in class, Deck, the same guy that would beat on Tell every time he tried to spend a little time with Georgia, even if it was just helping her out by giving her a ride home. Georgia, even though she ran with the popular kids, was always thought of as being stuck up, but the truth was she was shy and not very outgoing and her best friend

2 Stars for the front half I am nicknaming the "cheese section" for its cheesy dialog and clunky bits.
4 Stars for the back end which I am nicknaming the "yes please" section because it developed into a wonderful, signature LJ story that I've grown to love.

With this series, LJ offers something that's rarely tackled in fiction and even more rarely successful: She has developed a cohesive, true-to-life, familial, cultural and economic infrastructure and weaves it really well throughout each narrat

Oh how I've missed the McKay boys!! I loved Tell! I always love a "get the girl you loved in high school" story. It was a sweet and very steamy read! My only complaint was that in the end I wanted more!

This is another sexy read, starring these gorgeous McKays. Loved it!

This was one HOT, Steamy, Sexy, Western Romance Book...that I had a hard time putting down. I found myself fanning myself several times during parts of the book that was really EROTIC. OMG!
Lorelei James is one author who can make a "Book Mama" smile, giggle, and squirm.
Here's a tip for ALL the men out there...sex on a trampoline will do things to your body parts that will hurt. =)
Oh...and now I'm craving ice cream thanks to this darn book.

Tell McKay...how does he compare with all the other McKay cowboys?

Really 4.5 Stars


I love the Rough Riders series; these books are the ones I blame fully with my love (obsession) with Cowboys and the reason I should probably avoid Texas unless I want to be arrested. That being said, these last few have felt very different. That isn’t a bad thing, they just are. The earlier books are full of horn-dog men who grew up in a happy home but are now ready to settle down. The books that have featured Casper’s sons are

Wow. As usual James has given us another unique, exciting and passionate book. Georgia Hotchkiss had been forced by her boss to return the Sundance Wyoming. This is where she grew up in the shadow of her twin brother, now deceased. She has many ghosts to face and hopefully excize including an ex husband and his pregnant wife.
Tell McKay had a huge crush on her in high school, but she used him so badly he is still warry of her. Their backgrounds parallel each other in so many places. Each has los

"Don't think for a second that you're not adventurous. That you're anything less than fucking perfect."
And that's when she fell in love with him.


This book is all about Tell. And he is one hot cowboy who knows how to eat his ice cream *blush*

And we get to spend a lot of time with all the delicious McKays.

As calm as he appeared on the outside, on the inside his inner teenage boy was yelling, in your face, suckas, this girl is mine!

I love Rough Riders. Not a single book in the series has disappointed me yet. And that’s surprising considering there are 13 so far. A lot of series with this many books start to feel repetitive. Every story Loralei James gives us is fresh, totally different plots, different characters, and always fun and steamy. I love them all!

Decent but not my favorite in the series. Tell was a bit of a let down in the McKay department and I thought Georgia wasn't a good match for him. They both seemed a bit immature, and at times I wondered if they'd ever left high school behind because they sure acted like teenagers instead of mature adults. Not a bad read but any means, just not my favorite. LJ is a favorite author so I'm just chalking this rating up to not liking the characters. 3 stars

First reviewed at Fiction Vixen

I’m not going to lie, I have my favorite McKays. But I have to admit, the McKay cousins haven’t always thrilled me so I was really hoping Tell McKay would bring it. He already had a strike against him because I sometimes dislike heroes and heroines who suffer from middle child syndrome. It rarely works for me. So poor ol’ Tell had his work cut out for him. As it turns out, he was up for the challenge and he turned on the McKay charm and had me at the lube in the sh

Smokin’ hot & completely irresistible...

This not only describes Tell McKay, but also this newest addition to the Rough Riders series! Lorelei James continues to deliver the sexiest & best panty-melting cowboys EVER, after 13 books, this series just keeps getting better & better :)

Hard to believe, but in high school, Tell was the geeky scrawny kid who crushed on Georgia, the head cheerleader. Now 10 years later - he’s known as a ladies man and fully lives up to the male McKay family

This book has been out a long time and I just couldn't seem to pull it together to review it. Not that I'm conflicted, it's a solid 3, but that it's annoying.

Basically this is the story of Tell and Georgia. They knew each other in high school when she was a cheerleader and he was a bit of a loser. Not a lot of money or sports participation and too smart for the redneck set so Tell tended to be less popular than the typical McKay. Georgia appeared popular but actually stood in the shadow of her d

I am a huge fan of Lorelei's Rough Riders Series--no doubt about it--and love her smexy Cowboys that drawl such dirty words that make me wish I lived in Wyoming. Or at least attend a few Rodeos.
Her cowboys and cowgirls are devoted to their family, even when the s**t hits the fan and they don't always get along. Her heroines are kick-a** women that drink hard, party harder, and love fierce. What's not to love? Oh, and they do cheerleading jumps (Hurkeys) off the bar, lol.

Jenese (Readers Confession)
First off, I must say that Tell has captured my heart and slid into being my favorite McKay. Tell McKay is cursed with the middle child syndrome. He feels like he's not good enough and the family issues haven't ended even though his parents got divorced. Even though he was a late bloomer, he has upheld his duty as a McKay in the women department. He has those McKay blue eyes, dimples and hard body. Women in Sundance and all around are throwing themselves at Tell McKay and he's not afraid to admi ...more

When Georgia Hotchkiss moves back to Sundance, Wyoming temporarily she is uncertain to the welcome she will receive. Not surprised when she is treated the like the town pariah when she sees her fellow classmates. Georgia readily admits that she made mistakes in high school, she was the cheerleader and girlfriend to the hottest jock in school and was completely absorbed in that relationship not making room for friends.

Tell McKay had a huge crush on Georgia in highschool, she played him with beaut

Let me just say Tell McKay is one large hunk of yummyness! ;) The geek turned hottie playboy and the ex-virgin cheerleader sure do spark fire. Although their relationship was very juvenile and most arguments could have easily been solved, I guess that was the point. The insecurity, isolation and judgement doesn't end after high school. This may sound extremely shallow but I preferred the sex to their actual relationship. I loved everything about the book except the actual romance part. I see the ...more

The song that has been running through my mind lately so succinctly sets the tone for my feelings for this book that I am going to share it again:

Cruise by Florida Georgia Line:

"Baby, you a song; you make me wanna roll my windows down and cruise,
Down a back road blowin' stop signs down the middle; every little farm town with you.
And this brand new Chevy with a lift kit; would look a helluva lot better with you up in it?
So baby, you a song; you make me wanna roll my windows down and cruise..."

Yeah, that worked for me. It wasn't perfect, but it had a super sweet, smoking hot cowboy! I liked watching both Tell and Georgia fall in love with each other. But as great as seeing Tell begin to take a stand with his family and have more confidence there, it was really special to see Georgia "come home" and face all the demons of her youth. She was never who everyone thought she was and she developed the courage to finally be herself. What I didn't like was how childish they both act

What a hot hot hot read! Loved everything about this book. Tell and Georgia...love them.

Alls I'm gonna say is that Tell can come on over and bring some ice cream, a recliner and trampoline and we shall have one helluva effin time!

I received a copy of KISSIN' TELL early as part of the Stetsons and Smexin' with Tell Blog Tour. I've been looking forward to this release. But then again, I guess that's not much of a surprise since I look forward to all of Lorelei's books.


Tell was the most laid back of all the McKay men so far. This was a little surprising after Cowboy Casanova which starred Ben McKay. But that's not to say his story is bad...cuz it's not. It's far from that. Tell is fun-loving and entertaining. But beneath a
