Everything is bigger in Texas—

especially temptation.

For attorney and Texas Cattleman’s Club member Roarke Perry, Annabel Currin is about as forbidden as it gets. A just-jilted bride, gorgeously sexy, tender-hearted…and the daughter of his father’s nemesis. The sexual currents crackling between him and his client should have been warning enough. Now they’re both playing wit

Off Limits Lovers is a sensual, sexy and forbidden-ish story that I simply adored. I loved Annabel and Roark, they complemented each other well. I also loved the suspense/mystery element mixed in with family drama. I definitely have plans to read the previous books in the series and those that haven't been released as it. I recommend this book to one and all.

Off Limits Lovers is the sixth book in the Texas Cattleman’s Club: Houston series. This is my first time reading this series, so I can definitely say it is a standalone read. The series consists of nine books, written by nine different authors. Each book has its own main hero and heroine, but you see characters from previous and future books make appearances. The series has a story arc of revenge and murder, but at its heart it is a contemporary romance. In order to get the full depth of the arc ...more

I received an A.R.C. in return for a fair review.
This is the first book I've read in the TEXAS CATTLEMAN'S CLUB: HOUSTON series, and I am here to tell you that you can absolutely read this as a stand alone novel. That's because Reese Ryan can do more character development in 20 pages, than most people can do in a 300 page book. There are story arcs that run over from earlier books, but Reese deftly explains their origins, so you don't feel left out of the narrative. This book is chock-full of ju

There are two love stories going on simultaneously in Off-limits Lovers between Annabel Currin (daughter of Ryder Currin) and Roarke Perry (son of Sterling Perry).

They meet by happenstance at the local coffee shop, and later bump into each other at a gala event where Annabel plants a unexpected kiss on the lips of Roarke. Mind you, Annabel has just ended a 2-year relationship and engagement and yet she's ready to jump into another one, very quickly. She's a lot more aggressive than I like my he

Off Limits Lovers is an intoxicating read that draws you in from the beautiful cover to the last page.
Annabel is like the forbidden fruit to Roarke’s eye. Although his mind is telling him to run, there is something about her that continues to captivate his attention. From the moment of their first encounter, he is sucked into her very essence and mesmerized by her goddess characteristics and beauty. It does not help that she is off-limits. Her mixture of sugar and spice with a little bit of reb

I have been a fan of Desire’s Texas Cattleman’s Club series for years and have always marveled at how different authors are able to piggyback on each other to write amazing stories that leave you wanting more. Reese Ryan exceeded my expectations in her latest novel “Off Limits Lovers”.
As with all Texas Cattleman’s Clubs series there is always a mystery to coincide with the storyline and the hero Roarke Perry family is in the center of it all. Attorney Roarke Perry returns home in amidst of a fa

4 1/2 STARS!

Off Limits Lovers is a forbidden romance story between an attorney and a fashion vlogger who were taught to think of each other in disdain by their feuding mogul fathers. The plot is interwoven with several side stories that are on-going in the Texas Cattleman's Club: Houston series. I found the book to be very entertaining and satisfying. Some secrets are still left to be uncovered in the series, but we are getting closer to some answers!

Roarke Perry was particularly intriguing beca

Old family feuds die hard!

Roarke and Annabel products of feuding families because on one hand there was a rumor of who Roarke's father is and on the other a piece of land bequeathed to a young man who once worked for Roarke's grandfather that turned out to be oil rich. Annabel's dad happens to be the man who inherited the oil rich land when he was younger and he was also rumored to be Roarke's father. Funny thing about family fueds is that there is almost always someone in each family who end up

OMG...Mrs. Ryan has done it again, a great read and i'm yet to be disappointed with her work. I really enjoyed Annabel and Roarke's story. Neither chose to work for their family businesses, she was video blogger who helped less fortunate people and he a lawyer but for the underdog. They were suppose to hate each other because their fathers hated each other over a rumor and some land. Annabel living out her dreams and caring less of what the man who is suppose to protect and cherish her once they ...more

Warring families, a father determined to destroy the man he believes stole his wife's love, to lose his daughter to as well. A son that always felt alone and a spirited young woman doing what is right for her. A drama on the printed page, better than a soap opera, but definately allows the imagination to soar. The characters definitely draw you in, the drama is not gutrenching which is why I dont get into TV. Although the story doesnt quite have an ending it's not a cliffhanger. I did enjoy the ...more

There is loads going on in this book so you are captivated from the start to see what is true as well as what isn't and how the fall out from the truths will affect everyone. The fact that this isn't just about Annabel and Roarke but also others within their family draws you further in and there is more than one couple and relationship on the line! This was a great read and can't wait to read more in the series as well as by Reese Ryan.

Grabbed From The Beginning Until The End! 🤗

This was a great story about love overcoming all obstacles, especially something like a family rivalry! I loved how Annabel and Roarke were drawn together and just melded! Didn’t realize it was going to end the way it did! Reese Ryan did an excellent job with this story! Highly Recommended! Now have to find out what happens from here! Highly Recommended! Kudos, Reese! 💜😑

He's a lawyer and she is a just jilted bride. By right they should have no contact what so ever especially since their families have been in a bitter feud since forever and she is his client! But their connection and feelings can't be denied. This scorching romance will have you drinking in Roarke and fanning the flames of your desires because this is not a one read you will have to read this one again!

This story shows why Ms. Ryan is just such an amazing author. The characters have the best chemistry ever and her stories are written so that you can get a complete story. Although apparently this book is apart of a series, it doesn't read like one and can definitely be read as a stand alone, unless you just need to know about some of the other characters. A very well written story with surprises and laughs sprinkled throughout. It also has some life nuggets in the story as well. Good Job

I enjoyed this new "Texas Cattleman’s Club" story! It's a fairly quick read that is well written and very intriguing. I love the characters and the plot is nicely developed. Roarke and Annabel are great with fantastic chemistry just one problem their families don't get along. I love the family drama, banter, secrets and twists in this story.

Another great book in the TCC Houston series. This book is about Annabel being dumped before her wedding because she wants to do something for herself and Mitch doesn't want her to be anything but a society wife. She runs into Roarke at the coffee shop and is taken by him immediately. They are each other again at a charity event. He agrees to be her lawyer. They are so close and they start seeing each other but when Annabel tried to manipulate a situation to keep him in Houston, he is angry.. Bu ...more

Annabel and Roarke meet and have a strong attraction but since their father's are somewhat enemies they are off limits. This is a complicated story with two couple's trying to find their way to having a relationship with someone that may or may not be accepted by their families.

Annabel and Roarke have instant attraction when they meet. But then they realize that their families are rivals. Can they make a relationship work with all the drama surrounding their families? Good continuation of a family drama in this series of books.

3.5 stars! Reese continues to woo me with her installments in this series. For the first time, I enjoyed the hero’s characterization more than the heroine. Don’t get me wrong Annabel is lovely, but Roarke was holding it down. An enjoyable story if you’re looking for a fairly quick read.
Nechelle Morris-Williams
I enjoyed reading this story. You can feel the heat from Roarke & Annabel and it made me not want to put it down! Even though it's part of a series you can read this by itself.. but it has a cliff hanger and makes you want to pick up the rest of the story!
