BOOTED, Book #3 in the TRAILS OF SIN series
Genre: Dark Cowboy Romance Series: HEAs with no cliffhangers. Each book is a different couple. Must be read in order.
The night I’m released from prison, she’s in my bed. It’s been eight years since I touched a woman, and the Native American beauty is half-dressed, beaten, bruised, and devastatingly exquisite.
We’re toxic together, but we want the same things. Blood. Vengeance. Violent relief in a warm body.
Beneath her touch, I’m alive. Against her skin, I’m redeemed. Buried inside her, I forget the past. Until the past takes her from me.
Prison made me cold, but losing Raina makes me cruel. Ruthless. Unforgiving. I killed before. For her, I’ll kill again. I’ll end this once and for all or die in my boots.
Lorne hasn’t had it easy in life. Far from it. Spending eight years in prison will definitely leave a mark on you. It’s not something you forget so easily and Lorne can attest to that when he gets released. To be back with his sister Conor, her lover Jake and his brother Jarrett is proving difficult. Adjusting to being social and in public triggers him but Lorne find peace and comfort in the company of Raina.
Raina has her own baggage to deal with. She knows this group of people thanks to Jake and Jarrett’s father. She’s a strong and resilient woman who has made difficult choices in her life but has accepted them. She made those choices out of necessity. Because of love for her family. Yet those choices have also left her hollow and numb.
Together Lorne and Raina find a mutual respect for their lives and their choices. They fight and challenges each other constantly but that’s also what keeps them sane and them moving forward. Towards a new life. They’re intense and their need for each other is palpable. I enjoyed their bantering cause Raina enjoyed pushing Lorne’s buttons and vice versa. She’s tough and kick ass. Lorne surprised me with his vulnerability and his patience with Raina. She doesn’t do emotions well in particular love because of her past but Lorne proves to be so much more than a cold, ruthless cowboy.
This group of friends have been through so much. Their friendship and love for one another is their anchor. Beautiful, unconditionally and loyal.
Booted delivers an entertaining and thrilling story with a fabulous ending and conclusion to this trilogy. These guys aren’t just cowboys. They’re cowboys with an edge.
