In the new Blacktop Cowboys® novel from the New York Times bestselling author of Wrapped and Strapped, one woman learns that when it comes to cowboys, looks can be deceiving...
When Tobin Hale stepped in to stop Garnet Evans’s son from railroading her out of her own home, he knew moving in with his favorite Mud Lily could be seen as strange. But nothing prepared him for the arrival of Garnet’s fiery, beautiful granddaughter, Jade—or her assumption that he’s up to no good...
While Tobin might be the hottest man Jade Evans has ever seen, his physical attributes won’t distract her from protecting her grandma from his sweet-talking ways. But the stubborn cowboy digs in his boot heels and refuses to leave. Stuck in close quarters together, Jade learns Tobin is the real deal—a hardworking, fiercely loyal man and she’s the one in danger of losing her heart.
And just when he was prepared to leave Muddy Gap behind, Tobin may have found the kind of woman worth sticking around for...
Another great book by Lorelei
Yes I know this book is about Tobin and Jade but I first want to talk about Garnet and the Mud Lilies. I just love the Mud Lilies. I hope that when I get older that I will be whooping it up with my girlfriends and of course have a few young, male escorts along the way *wink*. The Mud Lilies have offered up so much substance in this series along the way. I have enjoyed the different characters and all of their antics.
Now because of the Mud Lilies and their lovability they have gained some love and loyalty. So it is no surprise that Tobin wants to ensure that Garnet is protected and taken care of. Tobin is prepared to stand up to Garnet’s family but what he wasn’t prepared for is Garnet’s granddaughter Jade. There was definitely some hesitant chemistry in the beginning. And their first few interactions were not only funny but cute and sometimes endearing at the same time.
Tobin and Jade are both a little lost in their lives in their own way. As the heat begins to build between them they seem to find themselves but in each other.
Lorelei James has done a great job in the Blacktop Cowboys series. I love how she introduces characters in the earlier books and then as the series progresses she highlights those different characters in their own books. Tobin has been around in the other books and it was nice to see him get a book that further develops him as a character and as a person.
Tobin and Jade's story
Oh my...if you thought you loved the mud lillies and Tobin before this book, just wait it gets better. Tobin and Garnet's granddaughter have a fun ride in this book and will leave you loving Tobin ore than you thought was possible. You have to read this book for all the karate chopping twists and turns.
Really enjoyed this. Very few books have the male lead as just a really good guy, who's also sexy and thoughtful towards others, not just younger women. Most male leads are very alpha, solitary, and/or secretive. I, also, like that neither Tobin or Jade play games, are very upfront about what they think and need. And who doesn't love the Mud Lillies? It's what we all aspire to be.
