This beauty is no greenhorn—and she’s about to rope in the man of her dreams.…

Cattleman Bran Turner has been left shorthanded, and rural Wyoming isn’t exactly a hotbed of job seekers. In fact, his only applicant is Harper Masterson, the town’s pampered former beauty queen. With no other options, he reluctantly hires her—even if the curvy cowgirl does get under his skin.

Harper’s getting a kick out of proving Bran wrong and showing him she’s qualified to pull calves, feed livestock, and handle backbreaking chores. But the hard-bodied cowboy isn’t all work and no horseplay. And when their nights start heating up, Harper realizes they might just be perfect for each other after all....

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.

Really liked this one better than book #1. I laughed so hard during the first 1/4 of the book. You can't help but love the characters.

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!!

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!

Do NOT pass on reading Saddled and Spurred if you did not like Corralled as much as you thought you would. Saddled and Spurred is an AWESOME READ!!! I didn't want it to end!!!! LJ has a way of penning emotions so clear, it puts you right there in her books, and not just from the woman's point of view, she clearly gives us what the man is feeling as well. And she always has an ACTUAL story to go along with all the hot sex. This book has it all steam, hot sex, drama, laughs, oh the laughs. LJ has introduced at least 10 more men and 6 more women for HOPEFULLY future stories. I can't wait!!! I love the way Bran describes how they all came to be such close friends.Harper's story touched me on a personal level, my daughter will be going off to college in August and I can so identify with how Harper is feeling about her sister graduating. Harper's story inspired me to start putting myself first once in awhile. LJ's Cowgirl Up And Ride from her Rough Riders series has always been my #1 favorite book ever, well Saddled And Spurred has just nudged it over so it can share my #1 spot.

James delivers every single time. She never writes a bad book. Saddled and Spurred had all the hot sex she's known for, great dialog, fascinating characters and a great story. I can't remember laughing as hard at a book as I did over Harper's run in with Bran's goats. Classic! James' authenticity with ranching, Wyoming and cowboys is unrivaled. She knows her stuff. As a Wyoming native, it's easy for me to be put off by authors who don't really know the rugged, wild west. That's never a problem with James. I thought I had read the entire Blacktop Cowboys series but had missed this one. Now I'm kind of hoping there is another book or two I missed so I can enjoy reading them! If not, I'm always up for a reread of any of James' books.

X-Rated Readers who enjoy reading page after page of explicitly detailed sexual scenes (sometimes bordering on erotic) and having almost every page filled with F-words or a form of such then this book is for you. Once the sex scenes begin and they take up 2-3 pages for each incident they continue every few pages thereafter. It is a shame Ms. James lowers herself to this type of writing because there is a story within all the pages and I could have rated the book at least a 4-star. It was listed for 18-year-olds. That age group probably are into this but I would not recommend it to anyone that young. The characters are interesting and the sequel might be great but I won't buy it based on what is written in this book.

I love this story so much I've read it numerous times. I laugh (fainting goats) and cry every time I read it. I don't think I'll ever grow tired of it. Bran and Harper are one of my ALL TIME favorite couples. Bran epitomizes the strong, sexy, gen-u-ine cowboy!! He's stubborn and pig-headed and half the time I wanted to strangle him, but he has soooo many redeeming qualities it's hard not to fall for him. He's just so damn sexy and his dialogue just keeps me squirming in my seat. Harper is my kind of girl. She is a strong, spit-fire, hard worker who always puts other's needs in front of her own. From the first page of the book, I found myself pulling for her because she deserves better than what she's been dealt. Their romance is sweet, yet HOT as FIRE and they are truly perfect for each other. This is the 2nd book in the Blacktop Cowboys series and I'll continue to read them as long as Lorelei James continues to write them. As far as the story and the characters go, this book remains one of my all-time favorites.

I absolutely LOVE and trust everything Lorelei puts out. Her writing styles from her western/cowboy to her fighter/mma is remarkably different. However, amazing at the same time. It takes a brilliant writer to be so diverse in her styles.

My favorite of the Blacktop Cowboys! Interspersed with humor, it's so fun to read I couldn't put it down. I can't help but laugh at the goat scene. Way to go LJ!

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!

I enjoyed this story and seeing normal couple sorting out all their baggage to find happiness that was waiting for them all along. I have fallen in love with this series as well as the Rough Rider Series and related books.

Harper Masterson need a job now. She is trying to support her sister. Her friend gets her a job at a ranch. Bran Turner wonders what is up when the beauty queen shows up to be a ranch hand. This will never work. Very hot sexy erotic read.
