The few …

Bradley Rhodes had always wanted to be a Marine Raider. First to enter a fight, he quickly became the person everyone turned to for assistance.

Blood may be thicker than water ...

This is Bradley Rhodes and Cassandra Davidson’s story. Leaving his job as a Marine Raider, Brad now finds himself working at Saddles & Racks. It means he can take care of his mother’s medical bills and is no longer in danger. When he meets Cassie, he is cautious but attracted.   I really admired Cassie and her determination to make the most of her life. After all she had no choice but to learn to stand on her own two feet, her only family being a self obsessed trouble making older brother. Sometimes it’s hard to chose between ones’ family and doing the right thing and that is the situation Cassie finds herself in. When Brad and Cassie finally come together, their blossoming relationship will be put to the test when Cassie suddenly disappears. Will Brad be able to save the woman who has come to mean so much to him or will the past destroy their chance of happiness? Gin & Jewels had suspense, danger, intrigue, steamy scenes and characters that you couldn’t help but like. It was also great to see some familiar faces popping in which added to the experience.   Another great addition to the series and I look forward to reading more.

Gin & Jewels is book 5 of the series Saddles & Racks. It can be read as a standalone. I did not feel lost of confused by not reading all of the previous 5 books, so do not let that deter you from reading this one. I really liked Brad and Cassie. I felt like their story was a little different from the usual plot line. Cassie has had a string of bad luck, starting when she was a teenager. She stayed strong and persevered through it all. The only thing that bugged me was she did not stand up to her brother and allowed him to treat her horribly. Her Brother was very hateful towards her and he got what he deserved. Brad was a good for Cassie, I liked his honesty with her from the beginning. He did not try to hide anything from her or lead her on. He did seem to fall for her quickly, but it wasn't exactly instalove which sometimes be hard to believe. Overall this book had it all, drama, love, some steamy shower moments and not to ruin it, but a happy ending. I definitely recommend reading this book. I plan to go back to the first one in this series and start reading it from the beginning. Once again Kimberly wrote a great book that draws you in and makes you fall in love with the characters!

I've read this entire series, and Bradley is BY FAR my favorite leading man!! I love watching a tough guy fall... And, without giving anything away, I would like to add that Cassie's brother is a POS. I have relatives like him, and I've seen what they do to a family--people they supposedly love. As Kimberly infers, blood is not always thicker than water. Sometimes the family we choose is stronger than the one we are born into. I cannot recommend this book enough...and if you haven't read this series... What are you waiting for??

Gin & Jewels had me up reading into the night. I was hooked from the moment of Brad's very vocal denial. He asked a stranger, Cassie, to confirm he was correct in front of his friends in a casino. He might as well have screamed from the roof top "I'm going to fall, and fall hard!" Brad is loving life as an escort. The money is good and the benefits are even better. Why would he want to give it up? Maybe it is crossing paths with Cassie again, or the danger they seem to find them selves in, but life is changing. The author has developed a couple of really nasty characters. They are cold. They are self centered. They are devious. They had my stomach turning. They could destroy any hope of Brad and Cassie having a future. Whatever it is that makes you react, get ready to be on the edge of your seat. Make sure you grab some popcorn because this thrilling, suspenseful romance will have you flipping page after page wanting, no needing to know what is going to happen next. These are two people that if they didn't have bad luck then they would have no luck at all.

I’m a little embarrassed to admit that this was my first book to read in the Saddles & Racks series. I knew I should’ve read the others before starting, but I didn’t. I don’t think it hurt the story for me, but I do plan to go back and read the others because I loved it! Brad is a former Marine now working as an escort at Saddles & Racks. He’s adamant that he will not be the next in his group of friends to get married or tied down. While out with his buddies he meets Cassie. Cassie’s parents died when she was 15 & she’s been supporting herself and her brother ever since. A week or so after their initial meeting their paths cross again. But this time is life changing. I absolutely adored both characters. And I loved the action/suspense part of the story. I enjoyed all the side characters, Brads friends, and can’t wait to go back and read their stories. I will definitely be telling everyone who will listen to read this series.

I loved this book! It was a little bit different from the rest of the series, but it was just as good. I read 60% of the book in one sitting, and the rest the very next day. It was that engrossing for me. I felt so much for Cassie because of all she'd been through in just a few short years of her life. I loved that Brad finally came around and accepted he was the next to become one of “The fallen”, it just had to be the right girl. Because sometimes all it takes is Fate stepping in, and you never know how or when that will happen.

5 I need Bradley in my life today Stars!!! OMG Kimberly has done it again, she's made me fall in love with a book character! After devouring the first four books, I knew that I was going to need the next one in the series! And I can officially say that this one is my absolute favorite in the series! I loved the development or Cassie and Bradley's relationship. I loved the twists and turns this book took, just when you thought you'd figure out where it was going, Kimberly took into a different direction! This book is full of action, suspense, and passion! I dare you to not fall in love with this book and these characters! Kimberly knows how to write a store that will just capture you mind, body and soul and when it's over you feel like a part of you is missing!! I will defintely recommend this book to anyone that needs/wants a book!

**First off, I suggest reading the other Saddles and Racks books before diving into this one. This book contains information that would be spoilers for the previous books.** Gin and Jewels is fabulous. How could you not fall in love with Brad and Cassie! Brad is a typical male escort from Saddles and Racks. He couldn’t understand why so many of his friends had chosen women and love over the freedom and money of escorting. Brad had no plans of falling in any of their footsteps, let alone being the next of The Fallen. When Brad met Cassie, little did he know that his life was about to change. Cassie had a very difficult time the last couple of years and was trying to save up money. She met Brad and little did she know that her life would be turned upside down, again. Brad had no intention of falling for Cassie the way he did, but he couldn’t get her out of his mind, and then couldn’t imaging spending a day without her. Gin and Jewels is unlike the other Saddles and Racks books, but just as fabulous! Is blood thicker than water; or will true love win out in the end?
