I will add a more indepth review after I have had some time to process. But for now I will say that I think it's amazing that a book can make you feel (physically) like something is happening to you, like you are experienceing the joy, or as in this case, the heartbreak. I will say for those of you who might be aprhensive, that it does have a HEA, and utimatly this book is sweet, touching, & danm sexy!...more
I really give the book 4.5 stars! It was fantastic. There is something about Lorelei James that just sucks me into her stories and before I know it, hI really give the book 4.5 stars! It was fantastic. There is something about Lorelei James that just sucks me into her stories and before I know it, hours have passed, I haven't moved, eaten, taken my poor puppy out, or payed attention to my teenager! And when I'm done doing all of these things I can't wait to get back to the book!
Saddled and Spurred is the 2nd book in her new Blacktop Cowboy series, and this series is proving to be every bit as good as her Rough Rider Series, which is one of my fav contemporary series ever! Love those McKay Boys;)
The only reason I didn't give this book a full 5 stars was because of the excessive sex scences. All of Lorelei James books are heavy on the getting down and dirty, but S&S seemed to jump from one scence to the next for a big portion of the middle of the book, with little else in between scences, and it got a little tiresome after awhile. However with that being said, even with all the hot monkey sex there was still a story there. The characters still developed a lovely romance, and dealt with their own emotional baggage that made the characters more accesible and realistic. She was even able to lay some ground work for future books in the series, and get the readers (def. me)excited for the rest of the series:)
Overall- Another Amazing read by Lorelei James!!!...more
So I have been waiting for Chase McKay's book to come out forever it seems. He would get a little mention here and there in previous couples books thrSo I have been waiting for Chase McKay's book to come out forever it seems. He would get a little mention here and there in previous couples books through out the series, and it always had to do with his rodeoing and his ladies man status. Everytime Lorelei James would give us a little glimps, I would get that much more excited about his book, you could just tell it was going to be good by the "scene" that was set (you'll get that if you have read the book!lol) And let me tell you, LJ did not dissapoint! I will admit at first this book had moments were I had my doubts. There seem to be some flat, or generic dialogue, like insert generic talk between father and daughter. But it didn't take long before that fell away, and what was left was an amazing book. I have noticed the later books especially have really dealt with some intense emotional happenings, and this one took the cake on that. I feel like I should warn, that this book made me cry...no, not a strong enough word, I bawled! It was short, but it hit hard and fast, and without warning (though now that I know I guess there was some foreshadowing) and I can't remember the last time a book made me really cry...but this sent me for a bit of a doozy! For all of you HEA seekers, no worries, this is def. a HEA book. And like all the other LJ books it extremely steamy! She sure know how to write those cowboys...and those cowboys sure know there way around the cowgirls...or really any girls period!lol
I was so excited to read another Rough Rider book, and It had all the elements of a fantasitic Rough Riders book...I will admit, this is not a classic in the making, but for me, it did the job of what a good book should do...it let me escape into their world...and a world with extremly sexy McKay cowboys is a world I love to visit!lol
And speaking of furture cowboys...she dropped a little hint about our upcoming Hero Ben McKay, Chase's brother, and a little bondage may be in order..... ;)...more
