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 ten-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.

Book Review

I am a huge fan of Lorelei's Rough Riders Series--no doubt about it--and love her smexy Cowboys that drawl such dirty words that make me wish I lived in Wyoming. Or at least attend a few Rodeos.
Her cowboys and cowgirls are devoted to their family, even when the shit hits the fan and they don't always get along. Her heroines are kick-ass bitches that drink hard, party harder, and love fierce.  What's not to love? Oh, and they do cheerleading jumps (Hurkeys) off the bar, lol.

I will say (while ducking my head) that KISSIN' TELL wasn't exactly my favorite of the series, but I did enjoy reading it. In fact, had to take a cold shower on occasion, and hold my sides from laughing at the visuals that Lorelei painted about a certain nekked trampoline scene. Talk about awkward and a wee bit uncomfortable.  OUCH...certain body parts should NOT be exposed while jumping; Gorgeous "Georgia" body or not, that cannot be pretty.

Yes, some of the smexy times was a bit out there for me, as far as realism goes--but I did enjoy reading them. They were very entertaining and original.

And I will never eat ice cream again without thinking how Tell loves to lick it off certain body parts...sigh...

Even though certain **ahem** sexual escapades pushed the realism boundaries for me, they were exactly what they were intended to be--highly erotic and a  total turn-on HAWT. 

Tell's dominance in the bedroom and the whispering promise of hot things to come--I almost felt his hot breath against my ear--was swoon worthy and rated an A-friggin-plus in my book.

Both Tell and Georgia have experienced a loss of a sibling. Both haven't really dealt with it. And both have no clue in hell on how to be in a relationship.  I love the way they flounder around trying to figure things out. Things aren't perfect---and THAT dose of realism is refreshing.  There was also a strong family dynamic in this story that made me wanna reach out and give my mom a huge hug. 

KISSIN' TELL was a great addition to James's Rough Riders Series and has me hoping that Dalton (Tell's youngest bro) gets his own smexy HEA.
