Lorelei James is one author who can make a "Book Mama" smile, giggle, and squirm.
Here's a tip for ALL the men out there...sex on a trampoline will do things to your body parts that will hurt. =)
Oh...and now I'm craving ice cream thanks to this darn book.
Georgia Hotchkiss (aka...Hot Lips to the guys back in high school) is one female character who has gone through hell. Here's some obstacles in her life she's having to deal with: her ex-husband is a douche, her Dad is naive when it comes to Georgia's ex-husband, and her Mom...well...there's something going on with her that's she's not sure about. Then there's the fact she lost her twin-brother after they graduated high school. She never expected the hottie who sat behind her in History class would come back in her life and change her world.
Tell McKay, he's known to be a ladies man after graduating high school. He's following in the McKay guy tradition in the family. He's not ready to settle down at all. He has his own issues he's dealing with: his Mom thinks he has no life, his brothers like to use him, and his Dad is a jerk from hell.
He never thought the girl of his fantasies from high school who he sat behind in history class would come back into Sundance, Wyoming. Georgia "Hot Lips" was his teen fantasy. He always loved her, but could never be near her because of her a-hole boyfriend, Deck (who ended up being her ex-husband).
Now is Tell's chance to finally get his chance with Hot Lips due to the high school reunion coming up. Georgia needs a date and Tell wants to show everyone, especially Deck that people can change.
My thoughts on "Kissin' Tell" is that I enjoyed every minute of it. Like I stated above, I had a hard time putting it down. I loved Tell and his dom ways. He took control in the bedroom. The things he did...Wow!!
I loved Georgia and how willing she was to do anything with and for Tell. She was kind of a wild woman. Tell had to actually tame her, which I thought was funny.
I loved the storyline of "Kissin' Tell". I actually cried in certain parts of the book because I felt the emotion of the characters. Both Tell and Georgia had a life changing event happen to them and they both were able to be there for each other and help cope with their losses.
I love Lorelei Jame's writing style and I definitely loved how she wrote the steamy scenes between the characters. I've never read a book that involved ice cream in a scene and a trampoline in a different scene. Yes...I typed, trampoline. I still can't stop thinking about both of those sex scenes...and those were just two. There are plenty more between Tell and Georgia that will have you curling your toes with excitement.
I recommend this book to anyone who loves reading western romance, erotica, and of course those ladies who love cowboys. This book definitely will make you want to "ride a cowboy instead of a horse". =)
Be prepared for some mind-blowing sex scenes that will probably have you fantasizing your own sexual fantasies after you read this book. =)

Not her best

I love this series, but these characters lack depth. Georgia is just kind of uninteresting. The emotions don't ring deep and true the way LJ usually can write them. This is one of her "lesser" novels in my opinion. A little like Dirty Deeds which really just seemed like...

This is one of her "lesser" novels in my opinion. A little like Dirty Deeds which really just seemed like character sketches she would eventually develop elsewhere. The trampoline scene is not even sexy in my opinion. The best in this series are chasin eight, all jacked up, and cowgirl up and ride. Also good is the one with two men, Edgard and Trevor, althoughthe end of that one seems a little rushed. All those are worth multiple reads, but this one isnt. LJ needs to do one on Joely Monroe....we are waiting!

    Reads "old" not contemporary or old fashioned.

    Like the story of how your parents met in the 70s (but retold poorly) and lots of sex cut-in-pasted to make it "modern". Not interested in reading another nor again.

    The time has come to end this series.

    There is no doubt that Ms. James is a talented writer and prolific story teller, however, with her latest installment in the Rough Riders series, Kissin Tell, does not measure up to her previous efforts. This is the 13th release about the wild McKay clan and I had high hopes for Tell and Georgia. The premise had such promise, even though it was predictable, former high school classmates, the boy pining for the prom queen. Fast forward ten years and Georgia is back in town and Tell is still hot for Georgia. Georgia doesn’t want to attend the reunion without a date and after seeing Tell for the second time in ten years she asks if he’ll go with her. He promptly agrees with “You want me as your date for the reunion? I’ll also be sharin’ your bed.” Really?? I don’t know many women who would consent to that after sharing a few comments. Yet, after Georgia agrees, Tell puts the sexual brakes on despite Georgia’s willingness to sleep with Tell, which frustrates Georgia to no end. There are too many secondary characters in this book, too many clichés and read more like a young adult novel than an erotic romance. This tale was frustrating at best, took forever to read and lacked the emotional depth and comprehensive character development that is typically characteristic in a Lorelei James novel.
