KNOTTED, Book #1 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.
I try to forget her. It’s impossible.
Growing up together, Conor and I shared all our firsts. First love, first kiss, first… Not all our firsts.
We were sixteen the night she was violently assaulted while I helplessly watched. I’ll never forget the sounds of her suffering. Or my inconsolable agony when she left Oklahoma.
Years later, she returns to honor our teenage pact. Except the boy she loved is gone, replaced by a ruthless cattle rancher knotted with secrets. She doesn’t know my dark cravings or the trails of sin that lead to her.
I don’t deserve her, but one truth remains. She’s mine.
This book started out very strong, and then it just went kind of flat in the end. I liked Conor's strength, but sometimes it seemed a lot more bravado than anything. I liked Jake overall, but his proclivities didn't really seem to come through in a way that was realistic. Also unrealistic was Jake's "therapy" sessions with Conor. Although I see he's coming from a place of care and concern, it just didn't work for me. I'm a bit baffled by how Jake and his brother were able to "fix" all the problems that drove Conor away.
All that being said, I still enjoyed most of the book. I'm definitely intrigued enough to keep on reading for Jarrett and eventually, Lorne's story.
New York Times and USA Today Bestselling author, Pam Godwin, lives in the Midwest with her husband, their two children, and a foulmouthed parrot. When she ran away, she traveled fourteen countries across five continents, attended three universities, and married the vocalist of her favorite rock band.
Java, tobacco, and dark romance novels are her favorite indulgences, and might be considered more unhealthy than her aversion to sleeping, eating meat, and dolls with blinking eyes.
