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

This was really good! I was really impressed with how there were actually two romances going on in this book, which given the constrains of category lines, is very hard to do. There was definitely backstory missing for me since I haven't read the other books in this series, but it didn't negatively effect my reading too much. And as ever, I am a sucker when the hero is the one who has to rearrange his life for the sake of a relationship.

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 by Reese Ryan is the sixth story in the Texas Cattleman’s Club:Houston series and features the drama and passion of two couples with family entanglements they must overcome to get to their happy endings.

Ryder Currin has had an on again/off again relationship with Angela Perry through the last few books in the series. The biggest hurdle they face is Angela’s father Sterling’s belief that Ryder had an affair with Angela’s mother before she died, and that Angela’s brother Roarke m

This book was such an enjoyable read. Even though I started the series in the middle I didn’t feel lost or confused as I read. I like the main characters Roarke and Annabel and the whole forbidden love aspect. They have good chemistry and I loved the banter between the couple as well. I enjoyed reading about the secondary characters as well.
Kim Reads (Read Your Writes Book Reviews)
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

Fashion vlogger Annabel Currin was engaged for nearly a year and about to get married when her fiancé broke off their engagement because she wouldn't abandon her plan to start her own business.

Roarke Perry is a lawyer from Dallas, temporarily back in Houston to deal with unusual personal reasons.

Annabel and Roarke first see each other briefly in a coffee shop. They meet again at a charity gala and it's witty banters and instant attraction at second sight😉. She's the daughter of his father's ne

This was such soapy fun! I couldn’t put it down and while it could be over the top in places (especially toward the end), I didn't mind for the most part. There are two romances: first, between Roarke and Annabel, second, between Roarke’s sister Angela and Annabel’s father Ryder. Oh, and Ryder and Roarke and Angela’s dad have been enemies for years. And Annabel, smart as she is, somehow didn’t realize she was about to marry an absolute snake so it’s a good thing he broke off their engagement whe ...more

Hatred, Jealousy and rumors can kill a family

Annabel Currin wanted to give back to her community and do things that matter in Houston. Roark Perry refused to work for the family company because of his father's roughshod way of doing business and how he always tried to manipulate him. Instead, he preferred to practice law in Dallas for those least able to pay him. This is what he and Annabel had in common. Even though they were both brought up in well to do families, they both rather work with th

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!

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

Annabel and Roarke have great chemistry among everything that's going on they find happiness.
Annabel is a jilted bride, vlogger and has her own company called Fairy Godmother's which helps people in need.
Roarke Perry who is a lawyer just like Annabel chose not to work for the family business Perry Holdings.
Love the pet names that Roarke and Annabel gave to each while upon a chance meeting at Farrah's Coffee Shop Two Pies which Roarke was buying for his family and Lemon Icebox pie.

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

Another Great Book!!!

Annabel has just had her wedding cancelled by her fiance due to his disapproval of her career choices. Roarke is in town for the first time in years to settle some family issues. From their first meeting, passion ignited between them but there was just one problem...Roarke's father hated Annabel's father. Eventually, Annabel hired Roarke to be her attorney after she decides to sue her ex-fiance but that didn't stop the passion from exploding between them. Annabel knew what s

Roarke and Annabelle.....humor, desire, angst, and a happy ending

Roarke Perry and Annabelle Curran’s have chemistry from their first interaction. This book was a new to me author, but I will buy another for sure. All of the emotions are covered..... Two Pies! Roarke and Lemon Ice-Box, Annabelle meet for the first time at Farrah’s Coffee shop and that’s where the humor and spark begins.

As is typical in a good romance, they go thru the good, the bad, and the ugly, but they come out on top in the e

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

Off Limits Lovers by Reese Ryan. This is Roark and Annabel story. Roark is back to defend his fatger. Annabel has just broken up with her fiancée. They see each other and it's love at first sight. From the beginning they were attracted to each other but when they find out their fathers are enemies. I love this story, I live the characters.

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.

2.5 if I could. If the author had stuck with more of the star crossed lover theme, I would have been on board. Lawyer/client is a big problem I just can’t get beyond. I know this is smack dab in the middle of a world, and it shows because it doesn’t work as a stand alone. There are too many plot lines tangling to follow any through to a satisfying end. The inter-workings of father-in-law being also brother-in-law just didn’t do it for me. I’m sure this author has other good books, there was just ...more

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

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! 💜😑

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.
