If you are a fan of James’ Rough Riders series like I am hopefully you remember Boone and Sierra. Well the wait is finally over and these two characters are finally getting their own story! Unbreak My Heart is everything I thought it would be, if not more. Now that Boone West is back from the Army he is ready to win back the girl he left behind seven years ago, but Sierra is a Mckay and they are known for their stubbornness.


As soon as I started this story I couldn’t put it down. Hell, I didn’t want to put it down and literally stayed up all night reading it. As always when I start a New Adult series I get a little iffy on how it is going to turn out but once it got going the more I fell in love with Boone and Sierra. As a matter of fact this didn’t feel like a New Adult story to begin with but it felt like another addition to the Rough Riders series. And can I just say I really like the name Boone.


We are reintroduced to Sierra and Boone, but we do meet some new characters that helped bring them together again. The second generation of the McKay family are just as fun, flirty and as much trouble as the original ones in the Rough Rider series. These boys are a real treat and I loved their banter. I can already say I am waiting to see who the next book will be about.


Now back to the couple at hand… I just loved these two and seriously just gushed over them. In a way they both changed in the past seven years, but I was glad to see that they still had that same connection between them. After finishing a story I always feel it could have gone a few ways but I was pleased how James had this one turn out. Like Boone, I believed these two were fated to be together and not because of their past but because what are the chances that you haven’t seen a person in seven years yet run into them in two different states? See, fated.


The first thing I really noticed about this story was that it was done in dual povs because, let’s face it, I love to know how the characters are thinking and feeling in certain situations. Sure there was some awkwardness between them but once they started to get to know each other all over again the friendly banter resurfaced and so did some really hot scenes. The love scenes aren’t just hot but fan yourself hot! The love scenes and banter helped balance out some emotional moments. I was actually surprised at some of the things that came up and really wanted to weep for childhood Boone.


Boone has been added to my book boyfriend list and not just because he was in the Army but because he was sweet, romantic and had this insecurity about him when it came to what Sierra might think of him. Sierra grew up to be a smart and successful business woman who was also independent. I really respected the hell out of her for accomplishing so much in just a short amount of time.


Once Boone is back in Sierra’s life their relationship starts to pick up speed and I really loved how they just rolled with it. They were both really determined to make it work and it did for them. Sure they had ups and downs, but the way they came together at the end of the day just made it special.


After yelling at myself that I finished this so fast I really enjoyed every moment of Unbreak My Heart. I can’t wait to dive deeper into this series and I am determined to stalk Ms. James at least once a week to see when the next book will have a release date. Unbreak My Heart was the perfect introduction for what looks like a promising and addicting new series.

Calvin McKay isn’t a big fan of weddings, but since his brother is the groom, Cal is there to support him.  When Carson needs to sneak away from the upcoming nuptials for a bit of alone time with his wife to be, Cal is called upon to distract the bride’s younger sister Kimi.  Only, upon first sight, Cal is the one that has a hard time concentrating.  Getting to know Kimi is one of the hardest things Cal has ever done; especially since he knows that she is his forever.  One thing is stopping this romance and that is age.  Kimi is still young and has a lot of living to do before becoming his woman, so Cal gives her the freedom she needs.  Hopefully this freedom will lead her straight back to him.


Yowza!  This book is just a dose of oh-my-goodness with hot cowboy meets erotic yumminess all in one package.  I’ve always loved Cal McKay and I have always wondered about his relationship with his wife – after all they did spawn those handsome and naughty twins…but that is another story.  Cal is everything a cowboy is thought to be and more. Kimi is just as sweet but is way more determined than I gave her credit for when I first realized her and Cal’s story would finally be told.  Together their relationship – once it begins – is erotic, loving, and one of the best I’ve ever read.  I can’t even begin to express how much I love this series or recommend it enough.

Good ole boy and country western star Devin McClain enjoys what he does for a living, who wouldn’t? Fame, fortune, and women are enjoyable to this nonchalant cowboy and he knows that some fans are more into him than others.  He has to take a step back and look, however, when he begins getting threats that seem out of the ordinary.  Agreeing to a bodyguard, Devin wants his protection on the down low…like that is going to happen!

Liberty Masterson is ex-military and has had somewhat of a hard time adjusting to life as a civilian.  Becoming a bodyguard for a highly respected security firm, Liberty agrees to become the bodyguard of a country and western star not knowing that in order to protect him quietly, she will have to pose as his girlfriend.  Piece of cake, right?

I just love Lorelei James.  She makes me giggle every time I read her and while I am not sure that is her intention, I love to laugh with her books all the same – Devin expected his bodyguard to be soft and sexy – he got balls to the wall Liberty Masterson.  Except, he instinctively knew the one place she was born to be soft – in his bed.  Alone with each other, their passion flared pretty dang bright and Liberty and I both couldn’t get enough of Devin McClain.

I highly recommend reading Ms. James Blacktop Cowboys series in order – the reader doesn’t have to but why waste an opportunity to immerse yourself in the wonderful world of Hillbilly Rockstar and the rest of Ms. James’ wild, wild west?

“Rough Stock” by M. Marie

Bronco rider Kennedy Rawlings took a bad fall a year ago and now she’s back in the same place ready to get back in the ring.  But first she needs some relaxation only one special cowboy can provide.


Rough Stock is a slow building story that leads to a strong finish.

Charlene has grown up in a man’s world.  She loves her father’s ranch and is disturbed to learn he has arranged for her to marry.  When her intended’s ranch hand shows up the sparks fly.  How will they deal with their budding feelings when her intended arrives?


Sedona Fox’s The Ranch Hand is one of my faves.  This little western historical provides the right amount of humor and sex.


“Small Town Famous” by Lissa Matthews

Jenna McManus is headed to the country for her company and this city girl is totally out of her element.  Good thing there is a hot cowboy to come to her rescue.


Kimber Vale’s Some Like It Dirty is another favorite of mine.  Jenna makes me laugh so much at the beginning.  And her sexy rescuer turns up the heat in a major way.  Some Like It Dirty is the perfect afternoon treat.


“Raney’s Last Ride” by Chaparrita

When Sarah finds her husband dead she goes to extremes to seek revenge.


Raney’s Last Ride has plenty of sex but not many connections.  I couldn’t get into this story.


“Runaway Bride” by Delilah Devlin

Jackson Lowry is going to get the woman he loves even if he has to kidnap her, tie her up and kill her with pleasure.


Runaway Bride is a delicious treat.  Sammi Jo and Jackson are hilarious and their chemistry is blistering.


“She Don’t Stay The Night” by Anna Meadows

Buckley wondered onto Adabella’s land and became a ranch hand one that Adabella fell in love with.  After years of grooming and dancing around each other they may find happiness.


She Don’t Stay The Night is a sweet story but not a favorite of mine.  The novella has emotion but not as much passion.


Cowboy Lust is a great compilation of western erotic novellas.  While I didn’t like all of the stories, I enjoyed most of them. The stand outs were definitely Kimber Vale’s Some Like It Dirty, Cheyenne Blue’s Under the Southern Cross and The Ranch Hand by Sedona Fox.
