Review: Just What I Needed by Lorelei James

just what i neededReviewed by Jaimie

Just What I Needed is the second book in the Need You series by Lorelei James, and this series is quickly becoming one of my favorites! This story revolves around Trinity and Walker and I absolutely loved it. The heroine was quirky and fun, the hero was sweet and sexy, and I love Walker’s family. I’m really looking forward to reading all of their stories as well.

Trinity Carlson is an artist and when the book starts, she is having a spectacularly bad day. Just when she thinks it can’t get worse, her ex-boyfriend and his new flame come strolling in. Not wanting to look pathetic and alone, Trinity decides to just grab the next guy that walks in the door, and plant a steamy kiss on him. And in walks Walker. [Read more…]

Review: Wrapped and Strapped by Lorelei James

wrapped and strappedReviewed by Jaimie

Wrapped and Strapped is the seventh book in the Blacktop Cowboys series by Lorelei James, and I have to say no one writes a hot cowboy quite like Ms. James. Pretty much everyone in this series is related to or knows someone else in the series, so even though it’s a new couple, chances are we’ve already read something about each of them before. In this installment, we get Harlow (sister to Tierney from Wrangled and Tangled) and Hugh’s story. You might recall if you follow the series that Hugh works for Renner who is married to Tierney – see, everyone knows everyone! [Read more…]

Review: What You Need by Lorelei James

what you needReviewed by Jaimie

I must admit – as much as I love Lorelei James, I’ve had it in my head that it’s only due to the sexy way she writes cowboys. Because of this, I have had her new contemporary romance What You Need, the first in her Need You series, just sitting there waiting to be read.  I’m so glad I finally decided to read it, and once I started, I couldn’t put it down.  There’s no big suspense or action; it is just a really great story with a lovable hero who has a lot of insecurities, and a strong heroine who has had her fair share of difficulty in life.

Review: Hillbilly Rockstar by Lorelei James

In general I do not read cowboy books, western type books or anything of the sort, but I always make an exception for anything Lorelei James writes.  My first experience with her writing was with her Rough Riders series and I was immediately hooked.  After meeting her in person at Lora Leigh’s RAW a few years ago, my fan girl crush on her only grew.  She is so down to earth, fun and approachable and the James Gang had a blast.  Sadly, the Rough Riders series has come to an end, but James’ other cowboy series Black Top Cowboys is in full swing.  Hillbilly Rockstar is the 6th book in the series and is about Harper’s sister Liberty Masterson, and country music star Devin McClain.

Review: Unwound by Lorelei James

unwoundReviewed by Shelly

There’s a lot about this story that was good. It was fast paced, the dialogue was very good and the characters were interesting. But even with all that going for this story, I didn’t especially care for either Amery or Ronin. And it’s not because they were not well written. They were very interesting characters with a very interesting story to tell; it’s too bad for me that they were just two people who I could neither empathize with nor could I really see myself being friends with. This is the second book in the James’s Mastered series and it’s also the conclusion to Amery Hardwick and Ronin Black’s romance. If you’ve not read the first story, this is going to have spoilers for that one because it’s the same characters and the same story line – consider this your only warning. [Read more…]

Review: Bound by Lorelei James

boundReviewed by Shelly

This is my second book by Lorelei James. I’ve read one other book in her Rough Rider series that I thought was okay. I always wonder what I’m missing when I see the hype and excitement so I decided to give this one a try. There are a couple of things I expected based on the blurb and the title. I expected something that binds the characters, not necessarily literally, and I expect a series. This might be a bit naive of me, but I didn’t get what expected. This story is epitomizes why I don’t like to read the first book in a series without knowing when the follow up is being released. For those of you who like to have an HEA at the end of your story, this isn’t going to be for you. [Read more…]
