I love all genres of books. However, when I listen to audio books as I clean, garden, drive they are better with a lot of heat!
Book 3 of the Rough Riders series may be the best so far. It has strong and varied sexual content, as well as character development and emotional pull. A really well-done erotic romance.
Twenty-two year old AJ has been in love with 37 year old Cord since she was 5 years old. Though he feels too old for her and insists that their affair be secret with a finite end of six weeks (when his son Ky returns home), he can't resist the temptation. A sub plot is what is happening to Colt, Kade, Kane and Dag, the roommates of the Boar's Nest who are abusing sex, drugs and alcohol for various reasons. There are three POVs: AJ, Cord and Kade.
The relationship building was really good and both characters grew for having been together. Cord learned to love again after his divorce, AJ learned to expect more from a relationship. The ending where Cord wooed AJ from a distance was particularly touching. This book was more emotional than most erotic romance and I felt more invested in the characters.
For erotic fantasy this had something for everyone. I liked that the H/h relationship employed mild Dom/sub and was more believable and progressive than a lot of erotic romance which shows the H/h doing everything imaginable. The harder core stuff with multiple partners and rear-door activity was reserved for the Boar's Nest characters. The sex scenes were plentiful but did not feel gratuitous as they advanced the H/h character and relationship development (he was teaching her about aspects of sex after all.) Particularly nicely done scenes include Cord dropping off papers to sign and AJ giving Cord a massage.
The Cord, Colt, Cash, Carter, Colby, Channing, Carolyn and Ky, Keely, Kane, Kade names was confusing not only to the reader, but apparently also to the author as Colt is accidentally used for Cord on four occasions and clearly missed in proofreading. Obviously the naming is not an accident, but I'm not sure why James has made this choice. Most authors work hard to avoid this type of confusion and to make their stories easier to read by giving character different first letters.
Though I liked the dialog. in some longer exchanges it needed more attribution. I found myself not knowing who was saying what a few times.
This was a very good book.
Rebecca Estrella was fantastic with the delivery of the story
Hot romance/Sci Fi we're so lucky to have Audible to feed our book addictions. I love walking my precious dog Sydney & listening to my books
Our heroine Amy Jo Foster, or AJ, has been in love with Cord McKay since she’s been 5 years old. The problem is that Cord has always just thought of her as his little sisters best friend. So things weren't looking to good on the romance front for AJ. That’s when AJ makes up her mind to in a sense “play dirty” to get her man.
Cord McKay is a divorced rancher who is 13 years AJ’s senior. Add in the fact that Cord is still dealing with the fact that his ex-wife just picked-up, packed-up and walked out on him. Leaving him to be mom and dad to their infant son. As a result of his ex-wife, Cord has pretty much sworn off of women and love all together.
That is until AJ makes him an offer he can’t refuse. See AJ is innocent in so many ways and wants Cord to “educate” her specifically in the area of sex. Cord lays down the law in his domineering way and that is when Cord and AJ start setting the sheets, barn, truck and various other places on fire. Smoking HOT stuff !!
With all the INTENSE sexual action that takes place in this book there were a lot of light-hearted scenes to take the edge off as well. One of my favorite scenes is Liza’s Bachelorette party. I laughed out loud it was sooo funny.
Another thing that I really liked about this book was that there was a side story going on that builds up to the next book in the series. I really liked that aspect a lot. Can hardly wait to get my hands on Kade’s story!
If you aren't into REALLY INCREDIBLY HOT SEX (sometimes raunchy) and graphic language, then this book isn't for you. If you are into all of the above - Go for it, this book won't disappoint. :)
Love, love, LOVE this one! The McKay crew has me entranced! This is one that I'd put in my 'immediate re-listen" category.
Cord and AJs love story made me want to gush! This one gets back to the basics of good ole one on one loving, and I loved every minute of it. Cord is as tough as nails, but once sweet AJ breaks down his walls you will absolutely melt. This series is definitely heavily erotic, but I'm finding that the stories behind the sex are just as appealing. I loved it, and can't wait to indulge in the next one.
This Series is the first books I read that started me on my love of reading. When I seen that there was i found this audio book I had to buy it and it was great to listen to it. Will definitely be buying the other audiobooks in the series till I have them all. If you like listening to books I recommend you add this to your library.
Good Books Don't Promote Violence
The main character AJ (22 year old female) starts out interesting; she is smart, persistent, caring and spunky. Then she becomes a wimp for love (Cord, divorced dad 15 years older). AJ is convinced that she fell in love with Cord at age 5 and doesn't insist on being treated with respect. In fact she throws herself at Cord, offering her innocence & affection and allows Cord to treat her with contempt. There were entertaining parts, some interesting minor characters, lots of kinky sex, and good narration but the plot was too juvenile for my taste. AJ needed to grow some balls and Cord needed to a kick in the ass.
I have read this book many times because it is one of my favorite in the series.
I was really expecting Scarlett Chase narration because she has the accent and expressions perfect for Wyoming cowboys and the women and other characters. Please bring her back....
The narrartor sounded the same throughout the book. Nothing special, it didn't give me what the book and the Black Top series gives me with Scarlett Chase, she delivers!
Please bring Scarlett Chase back!
Tell us about yourself!
Lorelai James continues to deliver. Each book continues from the last one BUT each one is absolutely different. You just never know where the next story is going to come from. Her range of ideas is fantastic. I think she really is amazing. Where does this imagination come from???
Both Cord and AJ. Each one is special in their own way. I'm not one for spoilers so I won't give any info. Each book delivers more and more in depth incredible material that will definitely keep you entertained.
Rebeca CONTINUES to be an asset to these already amazing books!
RAWHIDE... at it's steamy best!
Yes, book 1 = amazing, book 2 = amazing, book 3 = amazing and it just goes on and on and on....
No spoilers! Love HOT, sexy books w/a plot. No vampires, paranormal, teens 4 me. I also review in exchange for books-lots of fun surprises!
Hot, Sexy, Steamy
For those who like their books raunchy...

These McKay boys are naughty and I love it!
STRONG language - sexual situations
I love to read. I love all genres but romance in particular. The hotter and steamy and sexier book is the more I want to read it.
I love Lorelei James. I love her style of writing and I love her characters.
Amy Jo her hard work and Determination
Just made her so loveable.
She was good
Yes I would catch myself staying up extra late to finish the next chapter.
I am a full time student. I love to read but have no time to read for fun; audible is the perfect solution to that.
I've read all of Lorelei James books and listened to a few with various narrators and I've enjoyed them, but this one...I was tempted to give up after the first chapter because the narrator was so horrible!
