Oh yeah! That about sums it up for me. Wrangled and Tangled is one sexy two-fer for the price of one. Two super hot couples (divorced rancher Abe Lawson and his ex-wife Janie Fitzhugh--older, wiser and reuniting for a possible second chance at love; and Split Rock Ranch and Resort owner Renner Jackson and brainiac financial whiz Tierney Pratt who initially get on each other's nerves) make this book positively sizzle. The story mainly revolves around the two couples and the opening of Muddy Gap, ...more

Loved it and it kept me up late finishing it! This series is getting as good as her Rough Rider series. Loved all the characters especially Renner and Abe. Loved the two love stories for the price of one and I didn't feel cheated because they weaved together so well. The romance and connections between the two sets of lovers was so raw and real, angry at times, as well as, sugar sweet. Lorelei James's cowboys are my ideals!!, gallant and knightly; possessive and alpha; and oh so charming.

I love

4 'Nekkid' and 'Lookit that' stars!

It’s been a while since I’ve been surprised –pleasantly so-by a book.
I’ve read Lorelei James before, so I was expecting mindless smut, cringe-y ménage and icky anal action (like in Long Hard Ride).
But what I (also) got here was well-fleshed characters, interesting situations, character growth, sound back-stories and believable romance. The sex dint happen fall-on-each-other-from-page-one insta fast. We get there slowly. Oh, we still get a plenty of that but th

5 Stars!Another winner!

Not one, but two sizzling romances, lucky us. I really enjoyed Abe and Janie's story, but the one that clinched it for me was Renner and Tierney's; fun, sensual, and explosive...KABOOM!!

The story transitions nicely from the two couple's smokin' hot separate relationships, into the main one that centers around the Split Rock Ranch. Some laugh out loud moments with the ladies from Bernice's Beauty Barn, when they educate Tierney on the male anatomy. We are introduced to Tobi

As with all the LLJ's book's I've read, LLJ's wrote another Amazing HOT read for me. She can take a simple home town story and just weave magic into it. It grabbed me right from the start and never let go.

In this book you get two love stories rolled into one book. Both stories I enjoyed equally the same. Let me tell you there was some SCORCHING love scenes going on with both couples s

Mmmmmmm, Renner....even his spit (chew) didn't turn me off!!

This book about Abe and Janie...was soooo not about them at all! While they were in this book, Renner and Tierney STOLE the show! I loved, loved, loved Renner. His grit and "real cowboy" ways were so hawt and his plain talking, straight shooting attitude spoke directly to me.

Recalling some 20 years ago, before I met my true love, I was the disfunctional dater! I did not

Review posted: Happily Ever After - Reads

It’s kind of rare to find a story when two separate romantic story lines are put together in the same book, and neither one suffered for it. Three of the characters are all brought together at the Split Rock Ranch for a combined storyline surrounding the resort, but we get two very distinct relationship story lines for the four lead characters: Abe and Janie, ex’s who never stopped loving each other, but have both changed over the years and Renner and Tie

I have to say nobody writes a hot, sexy, nekkid cowboy like LJ - and I absolutely love her for it!! I loved this story, this is the third installment in the Blacktop Cowboys series and one of my favorite things about it is the fact that it was 2 stories in one book. We got to watch the relationships of Renner & Tierney and Abe & Janie both evolve at the same time. Who wouldn't want twice as much delicious cowboy love!!??? I have to admit that I wasn't sure about Janie & Abe, only bec ...more

I liked this book, and at times, I really, really liked it, so it gets 3.75 stars from me.

I wait for Lorelei James’ books like an addict awaits her connection. I’ve read every book since pretty early on in the Rough Rider series so I am familiar with the families involved and dive right in. I am hooked on James’ simple sexy style which is always a fun, fast read for me. I adore having the sense of place already established so that no matter who the leads are, I am immediately connected to them.

This one was super sweet!! It just baffles me how the first book in each of her cowboy series could be so awful (that is obviously my own personal opinion because plenty of people loved them, i just wasn't one of them) and the rest of the books can be so good! The last book and this one are perfect examples of what i love about Lorelei James' books and why i keep coming back for more! They're sweet, romantic, emotional, and super sexy....very much on the smutty side but still good! There are eve ...more

Shelves: romance
Sometimes I found this one lacking. I think it's because we get to see two relationships grow. So, because of that some of the scenes are rushed.
Sophie [at] Book Suburbia
After a year full of EXCELLENT books, I had to wait aprox. 304 days to read the one, I could finally call EPIC. Not only for the flawless writing, but for the absolutely gorgeous love story built behind it.

A great book. It's a twofer! I've said this before, but I love the growth and depth of the characters. Thiis book has a lot of funny in it too. "premature lubrication" is funnier in context.

Simply amazing! The perfect balance of emotion, passion, and story to make this a story you don't want to miss.

Janie and Abe have been divorced for many years now. They married young and when the going got tough Janie took off and Abe let her go. Abe has always regretted his decision to do that and now that Janie is back in town he is determined to win her back and he isn't going to let his second chance go without a fight.

Renner Jackson has been forced to partner with Tierney Pratt in order to

Recommends it for: Lover of hot cowboys. Fans of Lorelei James.
This is a story of two couples (Renner and Tierney, and Jane and Abe), lots of sex and some suspense. I give one star to books I don’t finish. I couldn’t finish this one because I am fed up with the same kind of female characters.

I have read and enjoyed lots of Lorelei James books. But in this novel I snipped, I got fed up with sassy, smart-mouthed, independent, self-reliant female characters. In this book I had a feeling that all female characters in Lorelei James books look the same. But in th

I love the way this series is progressing. I found myself empathizing with both Heroines, even though they are very different. I am always amazed at the character development this author dedicates herself to. I find each character unique and compelling. Enough, that I want to continue to know about them as the series progresses. She's masterful at giving you snippets of new leads. I am thinking I want to see Tobin's story in another book! :D

The book itself, seemed the perfect length, I tend to w

This book was so much fun to read and I think it was because it was like a too-fer, as in 2 couples end up with their HEA, which lead to all sorts of hot sex!

First we have Abe and Janie, who were divorced, but never really stopped loving each other. Instead they let their pride get in the way. This time around pride was still a sticking point, but they were actually talking and sometimes yelling with each other. The yelling was a good thing as it let them get some festering issues out of the way

I have been looking forward to this book for a long time and I was not disappointed. I loved that there were 2 stories with 2 great couples going on at the same time. It was also great to see past couples. Renner and Tierney in particular made me laugh in their interactions and holy cow, these 2 could be very naughty, very naughty indeed. : o
The teaser for future book of Kyle's looks good. Wish I didn't have to wait until Aug. for it. : (

Damn, was that wonderful! I felt pretty teary-eyed at the end, I admit...I loved Renner and Tierney (they were the reason I read this book), I had my blond hero, and found Tierney very likeable. Abe's and Janie's story was great, too. The steamy scenes were HOT, the emotional side fulfilling, the HEA ABSOLUTELY satisfying...no menage in here (Abe TALKS about one, but they don't act that out). Great book, absolute recommendation.

Another great read in this series. Read most of this today - started it last night. Loved the tension between sexy Wyoming cowboy Renner and city girl Tierney. He thought she was some spoiled daddy's girl and she thought he was an jerk (to put it kindly). The more they fought the more the sparks flew. Finally giving away to many firsts for Tierney. Abe and Janie finally got to settle things between them - nothing like a stalker to stir some things up. Can't wait for the next book!

This booked rocked my world. It had me laugh out loud, sigh with appreciation and admiration for the romantic heroes, gave me sad/happy tears and it made me hot as hell!!!
Abe and Renner are just as great as Hank and Bran. *sigh*

Now, I’m ready for some Kyle action!!!

The fav of the Blacktop Cowboy series! I loved Renner and Tierney story along with Abe and Janie. Of course this book just left me wanting more of Muddy Gap and I am looking forward to Kyle's story next. Another GREAT book by Lorelei James....they just keep getting better and better!

Wrangled and Tangled is the third book in Ms. James' Blacktop Cowboys series and features her own brand of sexy cowboys that fans have come to love and she rewards readers with not one, but two couples which means double the fun! I had expected this book to be Abe Lawson and his ex-wife Janie Fitzhugh’s story, but we get a bonus with the additional love story of Renner Jackson and Tierney Pratt of the Split Rock Ranch.

Janie and Abe fell madly in love when they were both young and not necessarily

“The more she stared, the happier his dick was to swell with pride, doing a stellar flagpole imitation.

About a year later, Tierney dragged her gaze away from his groin and looked him in the eye. "This is why I was against casual Thursdays. There's always that one person who takes it too far.”
