My Rating: 4 stars
Tanna Barker is a world champion barrel racer. But her personal life has been less of a success, and she’s feeling adrift. After her mother’s unexpected death, her father has remarried, and sold the Texas ranch she called home. Now a rodeo injury has left the restless spitfire holed up in Muddy Gap, unsure what her next move should be.
Until she meets her match in a wild, wild cowboy
Veterinarian August Fletcher has always put his job first. He’s never found a woman who could handle his on-the-road lifestyle. But when sassy, sexy Tanna blows into town, he finally finds the woman of his fantasies. And there’s something between them, but she claims she’s been burned by love ’em and leave ’em road dogs before. How can Fletch prove that he’s in it for the long haul, and that their sizzling relationship is better than winning any rodeo medal? It’ll take some sweet persuasion to convince Tanna that Muddy Gap is where she belongs.
My Review:*ARC received from Goodreads*
Such a wonderful addition to the Blacktop Cowboys series! Tanna and Fletch are a couple to take note from. They are able to be in love and completely smitten with each other, without losing their own identities. The best part of the story is Fletch's determination and commitment to Tanna. He won't let her run away from her fears or from him. It was also great to catch up with all of the other heroes and heroines from previous books and see how their families and love have grown. Lorelei James has a penchant for creating worlds and characters that suck you in and you cannot wait to revisit. Tanna is my favorite type of heroine, she has no qualms about speaking her mind, and she does not just assume the worst and create a twist in the plot without an explanation. As for Fletch, he is one of those heroes that loves with his whole heart, and is completely dedicated to his work and friends. Fletch definitely makes my list of top book boyfriends of 2013. Turn and Burn is a definite must buy!
