Running the Red Light by Kelsey Browning is a January 2014 Carina Press publication. I was provided a copy of this book by the author in exchange for an honest review.

Roxanne has opened a lingerie shop with the apt title of "The Red Light". Her shop is located in the small Texas town of Shelbyville. She attends a charity fundraiser for a cause that is near and dear to her heart. She meets a lawyer named Jamie at the fundraiser. She never thought she would have to call upon him for his services.

4.5 Star Review

Running the Red Light is the second book in the Texas Nights Series by Kelsey Browning. Roxanne is making a life for herself in the little town of Shelbyville running her lingerie business. She does this along with her friends Eden and Allie. If you have read the first book Personal Assets, then you are likely familiar with Allie and Cameron's story. I had not had the opportunity to read the first book and it didn't affect this story at all. Cameron's brother Jamie became a silent

Running the Red Light by Kelsey Browning is the second book in her Texas Nights series, and is the follow-up to Personal Assets. Running the Red Light tells Jamie & Roxanne's story. I loved learning more about these two! They're both strong, fiercely loyal, and terrified to show their true feelings. I swear, Jamie Wright just reached right off the page and snatched my heart up! I absolutely loved this book. Kelsey has done a wonderful job with character development, and I'm pretty sure I wan ...more

Kelsey Browning does it again with Running the Red Light. I was lucky enough to get a review copy from the publisher thanks to NetGalley.

I loved Roxanne and Jamie both as individuals and especially as a couple. The chemistry was so strong between Roxanne and Jamie, I really thought my kindle screen was going to fog up a few times. I didn't think I could love one of her heroes more than Cameron, but Jamie completely stole my heart. Even when he made me mad because he kept going out with the "appr

I loved Roxanne. I loved her attitude and her feisty fighting talk. And, of course, Jamie was just perfect!!

I read this before I read the first book. I'm hoping this wont make any difference.

Oh Jamie how I loved you, "sounded like whatever you wanted to talk about was important." Hell, he'd hope she wanted to talk about him taking her to bed. That would be a perfect way to spend his week's forced vacation."

I am a sucker for books and series set in small towns. The town Kelsey Browning has created, Shelbyville, could lie anywhere in the United States. It's a wonderfully drawn and detailed setting, almost a character in it's own right. All of the characters were engaging; multi dimensional with f=human flaws and opportunities for growth. The lead couple had chemistry and passion, the secondary characters were rich as well. The pacing was fast, almost too fast at times. The happily ever after was qui ...more

Yikes...I just realized that I neglected to leave a review for this book. Shame on me! What I'd love to do is rent a giant billboard to exclaim my love for this series! Honestly, Kelsey Browning is such an entertaining storyteller. She has a great sense of humor, and it shines throughout her characters' dialogue. Beyond the "romance", Running the Red Light is a great story about loyalty, friendship, and family.

Loved this story even more than the first one in the series. Read it in one sitting on the drive home from vacation. Realistic characters and dialogue. Kelsey tells a great story. I highly recommend it.

LOVE the pun in the title--The Red Light is the name of the heroine's store. So she's literally running The Red Light. Fun and sexy contemporary, with an interesting treatment of an antagonist.

What could an up and coming attorney and a lingerie store owner possibly have in common other then their desire for one another? Opposites really do attract in the second book of the Texas Nights series RUNNING THE RED LIGHT.

After hotshot Houston attorney Jamie Wright invests in Roxanne Eberly's Red Light Lingerie shop, she knows she's got to keep her hands off of the former Shelbyville hometown boy. No way is she going to risk mixing business with pleasure. She'll just have to suppress her des

Kelsey Browning’s Running the Red Light was released right as I was craving a romance that didn’t feature any of the current trends (think 50 shades of grey…) – all I wanted was a nice, mostly angst free contemporary romance and she totally served it up. I’d like to thank Jamie Farrell (who wrote Southern Fried Blues that I LOVED) for promo’ing this book on her facebook (and telling me that it could be read as a stand-alone). If you are currently in a bit of a slump and need a new author to try, ...more

After reading Texas Night #1, Personal Assets, I knew I had found a new author who has a voice and style all of her own. Texas Nights 02, Running the Red Light is just as hilarious with some great one line zingers as well as being passionate and emotional. Cameron’s brother Jamie and Allie’s friend Roxanne are at the center of this book. Kelsey Browning has created a fascinating story as these two steer their business and personal lives.

Much like Browning's debut (Personal Assets), Running the Red Light was a very fun romance. Watching Roxanne and Jamie dance around each other before finally realizing what they wanted was great. Once again, Browning writes a sexy romance with great chemistry.

Surprisingly, I found myself growing to like Ashton over the course of this book, despite the fact that she started out as a shallow, spoiled bubblehead. I am curious to see how she grows in the future books. (I hope there are still more bo

From the moment Jamie Wright met Roxanne Eberly, he has wanted her. It doesn't help that her business is lingerie and he spends his time wondering what she will look like in it. Jamie, an aspiring lawyer finds himself in need of a wife, but the only woman he has in mind is Roxanne who is the complete opposite of what his boss has in sight for him. There is chemistry though and sometimes you cannot deny the best thing that has ever happened to you.

Very fun read. Roxanne is battling her own feud w

Running The Red Light is a solid read with good characters and a filled to the brim plot, but I was expecting more. I would not go as far as saying that this second book in the series was a flop...

Roxanne is trying to save her Red Light Lingerie store from her former employer who is trying to sue her, enter hunky Jamie who lives in the big city and is a successful lawyer trying to make partner. Roxanne and Jamie are right from the start but have to overcome their own personal demons to make it work!

Outstanding!

When I first saw the name of this book, I took it literally, never thinking it was the name of a lingerie and "sex" store! The story grabs you from the beginning and doesn't let go. It is funny and heart-gripping. I read this book in one sitting and I am now moving on to the third book in the series. Thank you Kelsey Browning for another great read!
