Overview

THE TOMBOY

Pilot B.J. Gilmore is Tommy Creek, Texas's tough tomboy who loves to fly planes and gamble and doesn't give a whip what anyone thinks or says about her...until Grady Rawlings steps into her life.

PLUS THE WIDOWER

Heir to an oil dynasty, Grady has inner demons to battle. Ever since his wife and unborn child died two and half years ago, he's developed a deep-seated hatred for sympathy and can't handle anyone feeling sorry for him or treating him like some pitiful widower.

Grady hires B.J,'s plane service to fly him to Houston for an overnight business trip. While there, she coaxes him into accompanying her to a late dinner, where she decides it's time for him to move on with his life.

    Excellent Read

    Originally posted at: www.longandshortreviews.blogspot.com ***** One rough around the edges, smart-mouthed tomboy is no match for Tommy Creek Texas's too good to be true golden boy, but when they come together it's hotter than a Texas wildfire.

    Ms Kage gives us a most unique plot/story line in her contemporary romance The Trouble with Tomboys by giving her readers a 180 twist to this all to common James Dean-esque bad boy hero paired with Miss Goody-Two-Shoes heroine out to win his heart and change his wild ways. Ms Kage in her storytelling majesty gives us airplane flying, cigar smoking, potty mouth BJ Gilmore and couples her with too good for his britches not to mention too sexy for his shirt widower Grady Rawlings and then she let's the games begin. And begin they do as she throws us into this incomparable tale with her Texas drawl dialogue that flows throughout the novel and throwing in some hard living, hard talking scenes that pop from the pages into our mind as she paints her words into pictures we can actually visualize.

    Her characters are all so important to her story and they all lend a hand in the telling of the tale from the one liner all the way to the stars and supporting cast of players. Her hero, Grady and heroine, BJ outshine the rest as she takes us through the trials and tribulations of their romance. Her readers will cry with them, laugh with them and pull for them as they stumble their inept way to their most deserved happy ever after. The romance is funny and sad, it's heartwrenching and heartwarming and her audience will feel then entire spectrum of emotions right along with her characters. Her love scenes are very physical, visceral and descriptive and yet we see and feel the longing of the couple and the love that evolves.

    So brace yourselves for one wild ride with this exceptional debut novel by a name that you will soon be I'm sure hearing a lot more of. The Trouble with Tomboys is one of those novels that will stick with you long after you read The End. If you're looking for an unforgettable read with memorable characters and a story that will stick with you, look no farther than The Trouble with Tomboys. Oh and Kudos to you Ms. Linda Kage, keep up the excellent work.

    White with bunk beds and legos. There are model spaceships hanging from the ceiling. The bunk beds have a blue comforter on the top and red on the bottom. There are cream colored curtains.
