Brandy: I just read Long Hard Ride by Lorelei James. OMG!!! It was so freaking hot. Not one, not two, but three HOT cowboys on the rodeo circuit. So of course after I finished this saucy book I was salivating for more. And look what I found…a whole series! Check it out.
Lauren: “Have you read the Rough Riders Series from Lorelei James? The guys are not rockers but cowboys and several of them are bad boys but the series is great. I am not usually a cowboy type of girl and I loved each of the books.”
Lori: “I was surprised to see you haven’t mentioned Loreleigh James’ Rough Riderseries. Awesome bunch of alpha cowboys! I hope u get a chance to read them! You will definitely love the series!”
Jennifer: “… full of just the right amount of “naughtiness” lol”
and Penny voted all of these guys in her top heroes list:
“All the dysfunctional but hot McKay brothers (Lorelei James)”.
This is a nice long series to get really involved in, (exactly what I love), and wasn’t I just mentioning a few months ago, that I wanted to get into some bad-boy “rodeo” guy books? Remember? When I went to that rodeo and was exposed to all of that awesome testosterone-driven energy? Oh. And yep! I can confirm. Many of ‘em were quite quite cute, too, along with that whole bad-ass vibe! It was like a book scene that had come to life.
Oh. Er…. ummm… going by the titles, covers and by the book descriptions, ummm…. tee hee!!! *blush* This looks more along the lines of erotica then contemporary romance, but you know. I’m sure there’s romance, too. and plenty of great reviews for each, too!
