I love the set up for the book isn’t your typical romance. I also really enjoy the mystery/crime aspects the author injects into this series. It adds more to the story than just falling in love.

4.5 Emotional and Very Sexy Stars

I was very graciously gifted an ARC copy of this book and so I immediately dove in! I have to say, wow, I really liked the first book in this series a lot but I have to say that Paul's story moved up a notch and in a very good way:)

Paul's back story was so heartbreaking but yet, oh what a beautiful insight as to Paul's character. He was gorgeous, athletic, smart and my gosh did he know how to love and with such passion:) He had so much going for him in high schoo

hot as hell a d drip drip drip. Paul believes that he has lost his one chance at love and then someone falls right into his line of vision and he falls hard. joss has one thing she has to do but didn't think that fallen in love was it. two people that help each other and do what they can for each other to. love catching up with Gabe and autumn to.
First, I want to thank author Kimberly Knight, for allowing me to be a member of the T&L beta reading crew. It was fabulous to not only get that opportunity from someone that was already on your list of favorite authors, but it was awesome to chat and break down parts of the book with the other group members as we started to read.

Now...I can't see how someone would NOT dig a KK book, but bias feelings aside, this hottie of a book was spot on for me. I loved the tale of two broken people, fi

I think this is by far my favorite book by Kimberly. Once I started I couldn't put the book down. Paul and Joss' story is hot, sweet and sexy. Definitely pick this one up on release day you won't be disappointed.

Finally we get Paul's story and I have to say I think I enjoyed this book a little better then the first book in the series.

Paul was in love when he was in high school and he got his girlfriend pregnant. She ended up getting an abortion and he broke up with her and went in the army. Now years later he's an escort and still hasn't had a serious relationship. Well that is until "Andi" shows up on his doorstep as his new roommate.

Tequila and Lace is the second book in Kimberly Knight's Saddles and Racks series. I haven't read the first book in the series but fortunately this one can be read as a standalone.

Paul thought he had everything figured out his senior year in high school. He was dating the love of his life, was getting ready to go pro in football, but then his girlfriend ends up pregnant and his life starts to spin out of control. Vanessa decides she isn't ready to be a mom so she tells Paul she is going to get a

This book was truly amazing and I am so honored to have been given the chance to read an Advanced Copy.

Let me just say first that this book blew me away!!! You know you are reading a good book when you feel the emotions of the characters inside yourself. There were times that I found myself holding my breath because of the events that were happening. The emotional roller coaster I was on lasted from the beginning to the end, but I wouldn’t have wanted it any other way.

I got the opportunity to beta read this book and I am so happy I did! This was a great follow up to Angels and Whiskey,I loved Paul and Joss's story :) This book feels a little shorter than typical and it reads fast. For me this was due to the fact that the story never lagged and it was driven by the characters and the conflict.
The characters are developed well as individuals and then again as they come together. You got their back stories, you got their current circumstances and then you felt

Kimberly Kincaid's books always surprise me. The way this book started out I thought it was going to be cute, a little fluffy and a quick read. Well, it was a quick read all right, but the last thing this book was, was cute and fluffy! If you read the first book in this series, then you had already met Paul. Paul works as an escort for a service in Las Vegas and when his roommate moves out with his fiancé, Paul gets a new roommate who happens to be the heroine of the book. Her name is Jocelyn an

Firstly let me say thank you Kimberly for bestowing me with the privilege of receiving an early copy and allowing me to review. I am humbled.

Let me say I loved Paul Jackson from Whiskey and Angels so when I knew his story was next it was a no brainer to want to read about him and who would capture his attentions. None other than Josie Marquez, an undercover FBI agent.

I LOVE PAUL!!!! He is a sweet and sexy man that I fell in love with in the first book. Then this one comes along and just makes me fall harder for him. I loved this book and am honored once again that I was able to beta read and then get the whole story early. I couldn't wait to be able to read it all in one setting and I pretty much did that when it was finished. The characters were great and the story flowed and pulled you in wanting to know what was coming next. Can't wait for the next book. ...more

I enjoyed this books, as much as I enjoyed the first one.
I lovedddd Paul and Joss. Breaks my heart what she had to go through at 17. Her mom was a cruel woman.
I applaud her with the choices she has made in her life. I think they were perfect choices! I am also so glad of who she arrested, which led her to who she needed to be rejoined with again. That was awesome.
I'm also so glad that Paul doesn't give up easy, lol
They are just perfect!!!

Paul left and joined the military after school when his sweetheart broke his heart. He never thought he would find somebody that could ever fix his broken heart.

Joselyn had a terrible childhood and left it after an incident that happened on her birthday. Now she us trying to help the problem.

Paul and Joselyn find themselves in a situation that they thought would never happen and can't seem to fight it.

Kimberly has written another great book and I had the privilege to beta read.

4/4.5 stars - Let me start off by saying that I'm a big fan of Kimberly Knight's writing & her books. This one did not disappoint me. I enjoyed Paul in Angels & Whiskey, but loved him more in Tequila & Lace. He was so easy to fall in love with. I felt for Joss and what she went through at seventeen. This was a fun read with just the right amount of steam. I can't wait for Seth's story next up.

I didn't think it was possible but I might just love this book a bit more than Angels and Whiskey. Paul crept into my heart from the very first chapter and I was hooked. Love how to broken souls get together and help each other heal. Hot hot hot...drip drip drip...loved every minute of this book, definitely a must read!!

Really enjoyed the inclusion of Gabe and Autumn in the book, seeing how their love has flourished and grown.

Thank you Kimberly

I can always count on a Kimberly Knight book to bring out a lot of emotions for me, and this one was no different. I fell in love with Paul and wanted him to get his HEA so badly. From the first page I read I wanted to see how the book ended and where she was going to take the story. I laughed , I teared up and I swooned over Paul, Cant wait to see whats next for this series!

Everything was going good until the last few chapters. Just felt rushed and did really tie anything up. Was she able to get any real closer with her brother? What did Bryce think when he learned that she was his sister? And the situation with Vanessa is he really okay? What did she have to tell him? I don't know. I just feel like something was missing from the story. I doubt with Seth's story we get any answers.

This is Paul and Joss’s story and it is a short sharp read.
I liked the fact that characters didn’t hang around, they were keen to have their story told and the scenario that surrounded them meant that their story was one that I needed to hear.
The story was well put together and the characters were ones that were both eclectic and engaging.
I loved the fact that the author gave their whole story pride of place, that we not only got to see what was occupying them t the minute but also what had shap

Paul works as an escort. Joselyn is as an undercover FBI agent. You can imagine the difficulties, right? When Paul finds out hes getting a new roommate from Saddles & Racks named Andy, he assumes it's a guy working as an escort just like him and just like his previous roommate who moved out and to be with just one woman. Instead it's "Andi with an I" (Joselyn's undercover name) and she barges in and turns his world upside down. He immediately loves her sassy-ness and spunky attitude.

I purposely waited to read Angels & Whiskey until I had this book in my hand and I'm so glad I did. I really enjoyed the 1st book but it was nothing compared to this one. Paul and Joselyn had both been through hell when they were younger and then is about them finding some happiness.

In the beginning we meet Paul when he is still in high school. He is a star football player, has a beautiful girlfriend and everything is looking good for him. Then it all went to hell in one moment. He left his

I had the honor of reading an ARC of Tequila and Lace and let me tell you now, this is a book you don't want to miss out on. It is book two in the Saddles and Racks series and although it can be read as a standalone, I recommend reading Angels and Whiskey first because 1) that is when we first meet Paul Jackson and 2) in Tequila and Lace we get to catch up with Gabe and Autumn and see how they are doing.

With all of that being said, this might be one of my favorite KK books. I fell in love with b

This book is all about Paul who we met in Angels and Whiskey, book one of the series. He was a real heart throb in the first story so I knew we were in for a real treat when I heard he was one of the main characters of Tequila and Lace.

The story itself features some intense issues. We find out all about how Paul got his heart broken before he decided to leave for the Army and how he dealt with those issues. Then we have the heroine Joselyn, who has also suffered some horrible past misfortunes du

I was gifted an ARC for an honest review.
This is the first time I've had the opportunity to read a book with the intent of writing a review and it forced me to think about how I would explain to somebody why I liked/disliked the book, rather than just feeling it for myself. So here goes...

Paul was such a lovable (and sexy) character from the first book of this series. Of course, any good playboy has his own troubled backstory and Paul is no exception. His heartbreak only makes you love him more.
