Hotness Level- Inferno
Reviewed by Kay
This is Book Four in James’ Blacktop Cowboys series. It would probably be best to read the series in order so you would know the other characters’ stories as well.
Celia Lawson is a barrel racer and Kyle Gilchrist is a bull rider in the rodeo circuit. They’ve known each other since they were children. Celia has been half in love with Kyle almost that long but never really admitted it, even to herself. Kyle, who has earned quite a reputation with the buckle bunnies, has had his eye on Celia for a couple years. He was warned by Celia’s brothers, his best friends by the way, to never try to date Celia. These two have constantly argued and bickered over the years, so it is a huge shock to them to wake up in Vegas one morning, married. Sadly enough, the alcohol- fueled evening before is not remembered very well.
Kyle is called home for a family emergency and Celia goes with him. They forge an alliance for six months. At the end of six months they will go their separate ways and end the marriage farce. Not to spoil the book, let me say the chemistry between these two is on fire. The love scenes are plenty and steamy. This is a Lorelei James’ constant and one of the reasons she is an auto-read for me.
