She once led him around by a string. Now he's the one holding the reins.
Georgia Hotchkiss swore wild horses couldn't drag her back to Sundance, Wyoming. So it's ironic she's forced to take a rodeo PR job in her former hometown - right before her 10-year class reunion. The only thing worse than facing her cheating ex-husband and his pregnant wife? Showing up to the reunion without a date. Fate smiles on her when she runs into her former classmate and current cowboy hottie Tell McKay. With his infectious smile and fun-loving ways - not to mention his banging body - he's the perfect solution to her problem.
Tell McKay had it so bad for Hot Lips Hotchkiss during high school that he let her run roughshod over him. But he is no longer that easily manipulated boy - these days he's earned a reputation with the ladies that lives up to the McKay last name. He agrees to escort her to the reunion with one stipulation: that Georgia proves she has left behind the goody-goody cheerleader of the past by sharing his bed.
Their sexual chemistry flashes so bright, they barely notice that the reunion has come and gone, and now they're tangled up in another dreaded "R" word - relationship. But if Tell wants to get the girl this go-around, he'll have to come up with a whole new set of knots to tie up her heartstrings.
Warning: Contains a sweet talkin' wild cowboy with a wagon load of crazy-hot sex fantasies and the mad bedroom skills to back up his claims.
Yet another winner from Lorelei James. Kissin' Tell is a definite favorite of this series. I love a good listen, that includes a school-age crush that never dies and blossoms into that 'forever love'. In addition to the hot and spicy romance between Georgia and Tell, this story has some moments that made me tear up from both poignancy and laughter, which in my book is a recipe for a great story. Loved it!

Probably the sweetest romance story of all the McKay romances. Georgia was a popular cheerleader in high school and constantly took advantage of a love sick awkward Tell. When she returns to Wyoming just before their ten year class reunion, she and Tell agree to attend the reunion together. Falling in love isn't easy for any couple, but these two have lots of sadness to overcome and skeletons to slay before they can be comfortable together.
Tell McKay is possibly the worst rough rider ever. He is worried about not living up to the name McKay with good reason. He is basically an immature insecure jerk throughout the story. Yes as always the sex is hot but his conduct outside bedroom makes him unlikable in the extreme. He lies to his woman effecting her job, wraps himself in other women just to prove he's man to his family and thinks it's okay until he gets caught. He doesn't grow up or try to be a better man just begs forgiveness for being jerk at every turn. Sigh even fictional women deserve better.
Struggled to finish the story. It has a good narrator, but I didn't enjoy the characters.
Hot and very very sexy! Very hot sex scenes and I really enjoyed the whole story. don't we all dream of hooking up with that guy in high school we never had?
Overall story was okay narration was subpar. There were a lot of blank spaces and I don't know if this is due to the writing order the narration it just made it a little distracting. Maybe was a good story it was a little predictable. Worth it if you're a fan of the series but not if you're just getting into the series.
Would you listen to Kissin' Tell again? Why?
Another great installment from the master of her craft, Lorelei James. After listening to the previous book in the series -Cowboy Casanova- I was a little concerned that (as it wasn't my favorite) the good stuff had taken it's course. I am so glad to be wrong!
Georgia meets, Tell the cowboy, as she is doing publicity around town for some events. She and Tell have known each other since high school. Where Tell felt that Georgia had taken advantage of him by asking for his homework etc.
Tell is wary of Georgia coming back to town. It was bad enough when they were in high school but she comes in with the plan.
These are so much fun that I don't want to spoil it for you by revealing too much. There is some hot action. There is a lot of give-and-take and several misunderstandings that result in a bit of dialogue.
Rebecca Estrella is what she is and does what she does. I have to listen to her at 1.25X-1.5X speed, it makes it a little bit better.
There are enough twists and turns. I'm still confused as to who this guy is and his relationship to the Mckays. I think he is a first cousins with the original (C & K) Mckays that we were introduced in the beginning and early books in the series,.
This book is pure romance and seduction with lots of bad words and many descriptions of intimacy.
Credit worthy/: I have enjoyed the series and I believe I bought this the day came out on audio. I'm completely content with my purchase.

Another unromantic story about controlling cowboys, this one featuring Tell McKay, who was sweet & normal most of the time. However, Tell believed he was entitled to slap his girlfriends whenever he wanted and force sex regardless of whether she was interested.
Tell reconnected with Georgia right before their 10 year high school graduation. Georgia was used to being emotionally abused by her father and physically abused by her ex-husband. So unfortunately Tell seemed like a prize when he only battered her on occasion.
Tell was part of the McKay ranching clan of domineering men who believed that hitting women is an acceptable part of sex and marriage. Bizarrely, McKay women have been trained to accept pain & humiliation as the price for having hunky husbands and active sex lives.
The plot was a tired rerun: sexy, overbearing cowboy meets beautiful, spineless woman. Georgia fell in love with Tell, allowing him to strip away her self-respect and dignity. While not as bad as his brother Ben, who enjoys hurting women with bull whips, Tell was still a violent and self-absorbed jerk, not a romantic hero.
I did not enjoy Kissin' Tell, since I find books endorsing the physical and sexual abuse of women totally offensive, even in the most subtle forms.
