As a fan of the Rough Rider series, I knew the writing style. I have waited for an audio version of James' books.

This is the 5th book in the Blacktop Cowboys series. As expected, Lorelei James provides us yet again with a singe-your-eyebrows hot romance that delv..Show More »es deeper than ever before. TURN AND BURN is not simply about overcoming the fear of falling in love; it also deals with facing your fears. Turn and Burn is Tanna and Fletch's story. Tanna Barker experienced a disastrous injury that has manifested into a full-blown phobia of horses. She has lost her love for barrel racing as the rest of her world falls apart. Unexpectedly, her mother dies, then her father remarries and has sold the ranch, leaving her feeling adrift with no real purpose. She stumbles on August Fletcher, a veterinarian in a hot one-night stand but after that explosive night of chemistry, both of them are wondering if this could be something more. With clever dialogue and endearing characters, there is no question that you will fall both in lust and love for this passionate yet heartfelt book. Each book can stand alone, but do yourself a favor and get the series from the beginning. You will never be disappointed purchasing books from this author.
From the description, I was expecting this to be a cross between Christine Feehan's intense rockstar romance Turbulent Sea and Olivia Cunning's S..Show More »inners on Tour sexcapades. Since most of Cunning's sinful sexcapades were too much for me with the acrobatic and gratuitous erotica, I was thrilled that this was more like the sexy intensity in Turbulent Sea.
But that's where the similarity ends. With a wonderful role reversal, James creates a fascinating character in Liberty, the soldier sister mentioned in Saddled and Spurred, sister to lead Harper Masterson. Liberty is dealing with post war reintegration as a security specialist and now bodyguard, a role usually played in romantic fiction by the male. But Liberty is far from butch. And Devin is far from the stereotypical music star. If you've caught him in previous books in this edgy series, you probably suspected that!
James does an excellent job of turning these two characters toward one another despite a lot antagonism on both sides and I was thrilled that she avoided some of the usual cliches often seen in romantic suspense. Mostly I was thrilled that she didn't used the tired "misunderstanding" plot device as I was convinced of early on. The who-done-it part was a little too obvious, and I'd down grade a great listen to 4.5 if we could.
The pacing will keep you engaged in the story, the romance will keep you warm, and the sexy parts will make you burn. James has written the best one of the Blacktop Cowboy series--in character development, plot, and resolution. Altho all the other books in the series earned four stars from me, this one gets a 5. Thoroughly enjoyable. I might even give country music a second try!
It was a good addition to the series. Not my favorite, but good. I love hearing about Muddy Gap and seeing more from my favorite characters. Renner an..Show More »d Tierney seemed waaaay different which I didn't like so much since I love their story the most. Still good.
