Guest Review: Hang Tough by Lorelei James

In the new Blacktop Cowboys® novel from the New York Times bestselling author of Wrapped and Strapped, one woman learns that when it comes to cowboys, looks can be deceiving...

When Tobin Hale stepped in to stop Garnet Evans’s son from railroading her out of her own home, he knew moving in with his favorite Mud Lily could be seen as strange. But nothing prepared him for the arrival of Garnet’s fiery, beautiful granddaughter, Jade—or her assumption that he’s up to no good...

While Tobin might be the hottest man Jade Evans has ever seen, his physical attributes won’t distract her from protecting her grandma from his sweet-talking ways. But the stubborn cowboy digs in his boot heels and refuses to leave. Stuck in close quarters together, Jade learns Tobin is the real deal—a hardworking, fiercely loyal man and she’s the one in danger of losing her heart.

And just when he was prepared to leave Muddy Gap behind, Tobin may have found the kind of woman worth sticking around for...



I believe I say this every time I read one of her books, but… I LOVE Lorelei James. Everything she writes is simply amazing, and the Blacktop Cowboys series has become a staple in my must read pile. So when I was given the opportunity to read and review Hang Tough, obviously I jumped at the chance!

Tobin is front and center in Hang Tough, taking on the lead role of the spotlighted cowboy. He is tough and stubborn, but his southern charm and sweet demeanor makes him absolutely spectacular. In walks Jade, a spitfire of a woman who is determined to kick him like a bad habit out of her grandmother’s house, and turns his world absolutely upside down.

The chemistry that Tobin and Jade have is unmistakably steamy, and their romance is a sweet, erotic and all around fun time. Ms. James’ descriptive writing skills paint every moment our characters share like an artistic masterpiece, and the setting of the story adds a certain amount of charm to the situation as a whole.

If you haven’t jumped on board with the Blacktop Cowboys, this book alone is more than enough reason to get to reading!
