Cowboy Summer 2014


Wrangled and Tangled: A Blacktop Cowboys Novel

Reviewed by Selene


Janie Fitzhugh and Abe Lawson have long been divorced and living apart. Now she’s back in town, a changed woman-making cattleman Abe want to wrangle an invitation to her bed…

To get his dream ranch, Renner Jackson has partnered with spoiled daddy’s girl Tierney Pratt. She thinks she can handle this cowboy, but Renner won’t make it easy. Little do they know they will be entangled in ways neither dreamed possible.



My review:

Smart and sexy; exactly what every girl wants in a book… and a cowboy!

I have to say that these Blacktop Cowboy novels keep getting better and better. And I’m not sure how Miz James is going to top this one! The two intertwining stories worked so well here. Each character, and couple, got his/her/their fair share of the spotlight and I was grateful for it as my interest never faltered, especially during the extra steamy love scenes. YOWZA!!!

For me, Janie wasn’t an entirely likeable character, but she did still have an appeal about her… an appeal that Abe Lawson most certainly never forgot. And I do have to say that she is definitely one of the more adventurous ladies, which works out great for Abe as he is a surprisingly kinky cowboy. This couple is a prime example of the “if you love something, set it free, if it comes back, then it’s yours” saying. It was great reading about the way these two complement each other and how their differences actually bring them together.

I absolutely LOVED Tierney and Renner! She is by far my favorite female of the series and her equal parts confidence and insecurity was very refreshing. Renner is her perfect mate, natch. Both are incredibly astute and smart so their attraction makes perfect sense. Their relationship was more about building trust learning how to be with one another. Very sweet! The fact that they couldn’t keep their hands of off each other was also way adorable.

I can’t get enough of this series!!!

About the author:

A bit about me: When I’m not squirreled away behind my laptop writing fun, sexy, contemporary erotic romances set in the modern day Wild West, I can be found reading everything under the sun, practicing yoga until I’m a pretzel, shootin’ my .22, watching the Professional Bull Riders tour on Versus, and running a kid’s taxi service, all in the guise of avoiding housework and rustlin’ up vittles.
Why do I have a particular fondness for all things western? Well, I’m a fourth generation South Dakotan, living in the Black Hills, which is chock-full of interesting characters, including cowboys, Indians, ranchers, and bikers. The geographical diversity of the surrounding area showcases mountains, plains, and badlands. Living in and writing about rural settings gives me a unique perspective, especially since I’m not writing historical westerns. Through my fictional world, I can show the ideals and the cowboy way of life are still very much alive.
