(Pops open a can of Cannabis Cola . . . ) Gentle Readers: if you’re looking for a smart, snarky romantic read, full of delicious banter, look no further. Lorelei James has hit Colombian Gold with her latest Blacktop Cowboys novella, Tripped Out.
Although Dr. Liam Argent and Stirling Gradsky hail from very different backgrounds, they actually have quite a bit in common. They’re both smart, well-educated and have been seriously burned in the love department.
Liam has been hired by Stirling’s brother, Macon, to head up the research department of High Society, Macon’s pot growing operation in Colorado. Macon may own the company, but it’s his sister, Stirling, who runs the operation.
Liam and Stirling lock horns immediately, and the pranks the two pull on one another are brilliant, each more devious than the last one. As the pranking between these two escalates, so does the sexual tension and it’s only a matter of time before Dr. D*ckhead and Miss Dreadlocks and Multiple Piercings are professing their love for each other through a cloud of High Society’s finest ganja gold.
Tripped Out is a well-written, fast-paced trip. The characters are likable, the dialogue smart, sassy and full of truly classic innuendo. Particularly pleasing to this reader was the angst-free burn between Liam and Stirling. From the start, these two know where they’re headed; it only makes their journey more satisfying.
If you’re a fan of author James’ Blacktop Cowboy series, or a devotee of the 1001 Dark Night Series, you’ve already taken a hit off this spectacular story. If you’re unfamiliar with Lorelei James, treat yourself to Tripped Out. Just make sure you have lots of munchies on hand . . .
