    Overpriced - beware but haven't read the story yet

    Just wanted you to be aware that this is only 259 pages and I paid $9.99 for it. The first book in the series, "Corralled" is only 259 pages. I'm sure it is a good read as I love Lorelei James but I feel ripped off on the price. B&N needs to put the amount of page numbers in description. For that much money, I expected a pretty long read based on content/prices in the "Rough Riders" series.

    Didn't cut it with me

    Every so often I try and read an erotica, hoping the genre improves. But I'm not seeing it, and it's no small wonder people shake their heads and roll their eyes at erotica. RT rated this story with 4 stars. I care to give it only 2 ½ . It wasn't because the sentence structure was all that terrible, but the story line itself was pretty vanilla with very little substance. Okay, so Harper and Bran get to know each other a little in the beginning. But the rest of the story is based pretty much on emotionless sex typical of erotica. I didn't see the two falling in love through page 182, where I finally gave up. Only that they were in lust for each other, which doesn't make for a lasting relationship. By the time I got to the spanking sex scene I was numb-not only because it lacked emotion, but also because of the word choices the author used cheapened the relationship between the two characters. It's not that I'm all that shocked by the F or C word or by the other vulgar language I saw, but being beat over the head with it grows really tiresome, plus it makes the characters look as though they have no respect for each other, cheapening their relationship even further. I'm all for realistic smoking, graphic LOVE SCENES with genuine emotion behind the story, but this story didn't cut mustard with me. What's sad is this is how our younger people today view as love. It's no small wonder the divorce rate is so high. Then they can't understand why their relationships tank.

    Yee-Ha Ride'm Cowgirl! OMG, Singe the Pages Hot!!

    Liberty, Harper, and Bailey weren't fortunate to possess the luxuries of having a normal upbringing. Being knee-deep with the tarnished reputation, Dawn, their mother had so graciously bestowed upon them.

    Having an affair with a well-known patron of Muddy Gap, Wyoming, who happened to be married at the time, Dawn's own boss. After running off with him, she left her daughters to fend for themselves. In the interim of this travesty from occurring, Liberty had already enrolled herself into the military, and has been deployed to Afghanistan. Which meant Harper, had no choice to quit college, and resume the roll of caregiver to Bailey, the youngest child.

    Everything was going as planned, they would stay in Muddy Gap, until Bailey decided which college to attend once she graduated high school. Yet a wrecking-ball crashed into Harper's well devised plan, when she was dismissed from one of her part-time jobs (The Tan Your Hide Beauty Emporium). Thanks to the lousy economy, jobs in Muddy Gap were scarce and few.

    Then fate reared its head, Celia, Harper's best friend, called when she had a break from the CRA. Harper didn't want to rehash her disappointment onto Celia, especially if she was having some good fortune on the road, and be a jinx for her instead. But usually as good friends go, they normally already know something is wrong without you uttering one word. Celia finally pries the lid off of Harper's secret. Celia promises to call Harper back, and hopefully has a solution for her.

    Celia's brothers Hank & Abe's best friend, Bran Turner owns his own ranch, and has been in dire need of some help since his ranch-hand was injured on the job. Celia makes a quick phone call to Bran, explaining to him she has the perfect ranch-hand in mind, and that person will be at his front door within the hour. Hanging up on Bran before he could answer.

    When Harper arrives at Bran's ranch, he absolutely flabbergasted to see the former Beauty Queen at his front door. The same woman he has been attracted to since their early childhood, she was considered jail-bait if he succumbed to his well-hidden desire. How in the world was Bran going to work side-by-side with Harper? Especially since he cannot focus on anything but her when she's around.

    With Harper's sassiness and determination, eventually Bran's well-devised plan will be SHOT to H*LL. Once he's gotten a taste of her, he wouldn't be able to have enough. The chemistry between them was ELECTRIFYINGLY RED-HOT!! Harper trusted Bran to no avail, & yet all she wanted from him was DEVOTION & AN UNDENYING LOVE.

    BUT WILL THAT BE ENOUGH TO MAKE HARPER STAY & NOT LEAVE WITH BAILEY WHEN SHE GRADUATES?

    This was my first novel written by Ms. James, and I know I've said this before, but I truly wish to completely pursue it, IT DEFINIATELY WON'T BE MY LAST!!

    When it can't get any HOTTER, I'm KNOCKED OFF BALANCED BY A FIREBALL THROWN MY WAY, COURTSEY OF MS. JAMES.

    NO ONE CAN WRITE EROTIC, UNADULTERED PLEASURES THAN SHE. WELL DONE MS. JAMES THIS NOVEL DESERVES NOTHING SHORT OF A 10 STAR RATING!!!

    Definitely a must read!!!

    This book has it all. Great storyline, wonderful dialogue with well-developed characters and hot and steamy sex. Bran is the quintessential cattleman/rancher and Harper is not your typical beauty queen. There are plenty of fireworks and sparks ignited between these two, and author Lorelei James has managed to weave another fabulous and fresh story about the folks from Muddy Gap, Wyoming. Just as Ms. James enthralled and entertained us with the McKays in her Rough Rider Series, the Blacktop Cowboys are sure to do the same!! Highly recommend if you love a great story and romance!!

    Great Love Story

    Finished SAS last night and absolutely loved it. Bran and Harper make a great couple. I loved reading the evolution of Bran realizing his feelings for Harper. I admire Harper for all she had to overcome in her life. The book had some really funny parts and some really emotional parts. All around great!

    an enjoyable ranch romance

    In Muddy Gap, Wyoming Tan Your Hide beauty emporium owner Alice Samuels fires Harper Masterson as she no longer needs the help since she is shutting down the storefront to sell her products from her home. Harper needs temporary employment for a few months to cover bills for her and her sister Bailey before her sibling begins college. She plans to leave town once Bailey starts school as both will have new beginnings.

    The only position available is working for Bran Turner pulling calves at his ranch; a man she has had a few arguments with. However, she is stunned when he hires her as besides their dispute, she lacks experience. He is surprised that she is diligent, intelligent and hard working as he assumed he hired a cotton candy former beauty queen. He especially appreciates her manner with animals. As they fall in love, Renner Jackson enters Harper's life and Bran's injured permanent employee Les returns to work; but it is his trust issues that causes the wedge bigger than the Grand Tetons.

    The second Blacktop Cowboys (see Corralled) is an enjoyable ranch romance as each of the lead couple hides secrets from the other that lead to suspicion between them. The support cast is strong and the setting of rural Wyoming enhancing the problems that both face, especially the heroine. Readers will enjoy this wonderful contemporary.

    Former beauty queen Harper Masterson wants to leave town with



    Former beauty queen Harper Masterson wants to leave town with her sister Bailey, who will be starting college soon. They both need a fresh start after Harper’s fired from her current job. But Harper needs employment for the next few months before they can go. The only thing that seems to be available is working as a hired hand for cattleman Bran Turner. It will be a problem going in because she has issues with the man. On top of that, she has no experience but is determined to make the job work. Bran is amazed when he hires her and she shows great promise. Harper is good with the animals and she entices him as well. Despite some false starts, the couple begins a physical relationship but there are some hiccups along the way. When Bran’s real hired hand heals from his injuries and returns to work, he causes trouble right away.

    The second entry in the Blacktop Cowboys series has Ms. James’s trademark hot alpha hero and feisty heroine who complement each other as they travel a bumpy road to their happy ever after. Everyone has secrets that lend an air of mystery to the novel. It’s a titillating tale sure to please anyone looking forward to a sexy read. I highly recommend this book to those who haven’t read books in the series as it stands on its own. For those who’ve started the series, it’s worth continuing with this keeper.

    What a couple! What a story! Harper is a woman who you have to admire because she is faithful, loyal, kind, determined, and selfless. She hits rock bottom financially and needs a job to support herself and her sister. She becomes a ranch hand? Impossible but true, pageant queen to ranch hand. Bran is cold, stubborn and lonely. he does not know it right away but she is the ONE. He has to prove his love in the end, and it is so romantic. There is some sexy scenes, not to over -the- top but hot. It is the story that keeps you reading. Enjoy!
