BUCKLED, Book #2 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 protect what’s mine. The ranch, my family, our buried secrets.
Nothing will stop me from reassembling the life that went terribly wrong. Not the law. Not our enemies. Not even Maybe Quinn.
The gorgeous, quarrelsome journalist shouldn’t have meddled. I shouldn’t have let her stay. But she’s hiding something in those deceptive blue eyes. Something deeper than her thirst for a news story.
I make a deal with her to buy time. To unravel her lies. To play with her. To satisfy my darker appetites. When she buckles beneath my belt, I’ll send her away. Unless I buckle first.
TRAILS OF SIN Series
SHANDA 4.5 stars
Admittedly book one was not my favorite. I was afraid that Buckled would come across as filler because I was not that intrigued by Jarret and Maybe. I am glad I was wrong. I thought their chemistry was explosive. Buckled is more angsty and erotic than I expected it to be. I also thought it was a bit more romantic. I loved it. As these two fall in love, they are both keeping secrets that can ruin them. As you know from book one Jarret’s secrets are ugly. His secrets were a great tie in to Maybe’s backstory.
I cannot wait to get my hands on Lorne’s book as it concludes this family’s story. I am really dying to know him. So far, he has been a mystery. It will be interesting to see how he handles life after getting out. I am curious about Raina’s secrets as well. What is going on with her? I can’t wait to find out.
If you want to see how Pam Godwin takes on dark cowboys (although not as dark as Pam’s previous works) you will not be disappointed. I thought this book in particular had a lot of heart. Buckled has secrets and drama but it is also steamy and romantic.
AMY 3.5 STARS
I enjoyed this more than book one, but had a hard time staying engaged, although not sure why. That said, I liked that Maybe made Jarrett work for it. I think they balanced each other well. I'm not exactly sure how they will get over some of the issues ahead of them, but I'm sure they'll think of a way.
All that being said, I'm still really looking forward to 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.
