I love Jane's writing for her storytelling and how she takes you to a different place, I adored Kes and Aimee's story and they will always be my favourite couple, that being said this was a slightly different read but one I enjoyed being alongside.

What's it about?
Tucker is known for his Manwhore ways he never takes a woman twice. In fact, he pushes it twice but never connects to any woman, that is until he see's Tara. Tara is Kes's half sister and is from a different world to Tucker's .

Rating : 3.5 ‘ROUSTABOUT’ Stars

My Views : This is a love story between Tucker - the manwhore and Tera – the Senator’s daughter. I had high hopes with this one especially after reading The Traveling man but honestly I was very disappointeddescription because this one didn’t have that magic that the first book in the series had. Then in terms of excitement it wasn’t much either. description

Style of writing : I have always been a fan of JHB and I have always jumped on her books like the devil of Tasmania because she’s

I'm officially in love with Tucker McCoy.

Roustabout is a story that captivate me right from the start and kept me awake all night long because I simply can't put it down without knowing what will happen in the end. I absolutely adore the heroine and in love with the hero. Not to mention the great supporting casts from the carnival, Kes, Aimee, Zef and the rest of the clan.

Tucker McCoy is the carnie stunt rider along with Kes, the hero from the previous two books in the series

Once again, Jane Harvey Berrick has done a fantastic job of transporting me to the carnival; the magic and wonder of it all, taking centre stage and making me feel like I was right there.

If you have read Traveling Man/Woman, you will know that Tucker McCoy is part if the Daredevils team, performing the stunt motorcycle act in the traveling carnival. If you haven't, no worries, you can read this as a stand-alone, no problem at all.

I like this authors writing style and it's always easy to get into her stories but I struggled with this one. Mainly because I didn't like the heroine, Tera, one bit. To me, it just seemed like the rich girl was slumming it with a Carnie. She just seemed to want Tucker for sex. The story was really predictable and I've read it a thousand times before. Manwhore hero yet first time he sleeps with the heroine it's the best sex he's ever had blah, blah, blah. Trouble with this manwhore was he had se ...more

Jane Harvey-Berrick delivers again! Her descriptive storytelling is like no other. Tera and Tucker...talk about lovers coming from the opposite side of the tracks. Tera is a strong willed political publicist vs. Tucker, a manwhore carnie stunt man. Their love story is both painful and magical. Even though the odds are against them,we desperately want these two opposites to overcome their adversity and find a path for their love to flourish. This story is about being honest and open with each ot ...more

♥♥♥ Oh Tucker, you sugar, you!!! ♥♥♥

When I found out that Tucker was getting his story as part of this series, I just knew I had to continue with the series.

The first 2 books (The Traveling Man and The Traveling Woman) introduced us not only to Kes & Aimee but also to the interesting and thrilling world that is the carnival. Here, we continue to see the inner workings of the carnie world, but the focus is now on Tucker and Tera, obviously.

4.5 "Star-Crossed Lovers" Stars! If you loved the Traveling Duet (Traveling Man/Traveling Woman), you will not want to miss Tucker McCoy's and Tera Hawkins' story. Tucker is one of the other three motorcycle stunt riders that travels with Kes in the carnival circuit, and Tera is Kes' recently discovered half sister who was raised by his estranged father the Senator. Roustabout has the same angst filled, heart wrenching emotional quality that I fell in love with in the Traveling Man/Traveling Wom ...more

I was very lucky in winning an early copy of the Roustabout and here is my honest review:

The Daredevils are back! This time its the story of Tucker McCoy.

Jane Harvey-Berrick is an incredibly clever author. She has the talent to create a hero that has the right mixture of strong, alpha exterior but with a hidden vulnerability. You don't know if you want to rip their clothes off or cuddle them at the same time. Her writing is just beautifully described. I just couldn't put the book down.

Just when you think that Kes is the man for you along comes Tucker to sweep you off your feet, pull on your heartstrings and make you want to pack your bags and join the nearest carnival. Yes, it’s time for Tucker’s story and it’s one to rival Kes’.

I was hesitant to read this book so soon after the success of the first two books in the Travelling series but knowing how reliable a storyteller Jane Harvey-Berrick is I knew that my concerns were unfounded. I loved the Travelling Duo and Kes and Aim

*Roustabout is the third book in the Traveling Series, but can be read as a standalone.*

Roustabout is a story of life, love, brotherhood bound by friendship that runs thicker than blood. I've said it before and I will say it again - Jane Harvey-Berrick doesn't just do romance, this isn't another formulaic bad boy meets rich girl contemporary read but an intricate, beautifully weaved life experience.

From an abused boy to a hard working roustabout runaway, Tucker McCoy is an incredible talent that

Tucker and Tera's story was much like Kes and Aimee's. I loved Tucker's serious side and his secret gentle sensitive see that he finally could share with Tera. Their love was HOT much like Kes and Aimee but their stories different. Loved that we got to see all previous characters from books 1 and 2.

What a fantastic addition to the Traveling Series.
This book was full on from the start. Every page was was something new happening. I loved the sarcastic banter that the 2 characters had from the minute they met. This really made the story for me and the author had me laughing away throughout the book. It also broke up the more serious moments though and heartbreaking parts in the story as the 2 main characters always came back to their flirty banter.

This is the third book in the Traveling series and this time its Tucker's story.

The book starts with a party and the carnival where Tucker and Tera have some series chemistry as Tera tries to get closer to Tucker even through he is reluctant as Tera is Kes's sister. Tucker is your typical bad boy womanizer but for some reason Tera has captured his attention when she should be strictly off limits.

We learn alot about Tucker's past in this book. At times my heart really broke and I just wanted to
