Spun Out (Blacktop Cowboys #10) by Lorelei James [arc review]
|Spun Out, Lorelei James|
New York Times bestselling author Lorelei James returns for another wild ride in Wyoming with a new Blacktop Cowboys® novel.
Years in the Army equipped Bailey Masterson for many things: target shooting, rappelling off cliffs, dodging grenades. She's lived through horrors that still give her nightmares. But nothing in Bailey's life-or-death training prepared her for caring for the tiny terror that is five-year-old Olivia Hale. Or how to control her raging attraction to Olivia's father, Streeter, the rugged, green-eyed cattle rancher who undermines her every move even when he stars in her dreams.
Streeter Hale has room for only two things in his life: his daughter and his job. He doesn't date. He doesn't get attached. Not anymore. So not only is Streeter stunned by Olivia's improved behavior after just a few days with Bailey, he's downright floored by his immediate attraction to the woman. But with secrets in her eyes and a body that doesn't quit, Streeter begins to worry that Bailey Masterson might just be the one woman to heal his fractured family and broken heart.
One thing's for sure--these two wrecked souls are spinning out of control as they desperately try not to fall in love...
The Review: 2.5 Stars
I will start off by saying that there was very little chance of this being a 5 from me simply because of the single dad trope. Although I can read books with that and enjoy it, the single parent trope is one of my least favorites if not THE least favorite trope out there. On the odd occasion I enjoy them it is because the kids are tolerable, that was not the case here. Almost every kid, and there were way too many in this story were obnoxious. And before you call me a cold hearted B., I have kids, I know they can be that bad, hence I don't like kids in books... there is nothing romantic about those little brats doesn't matter how much you love 'em! :)
Bailey saves the book and is the start of the show. She is tough, determined, and hard working.
Streeter was off-putting to start. He gets better as the story progresses and you get to understand him. but although I felt for his character, I didn't fall in love with his character. He was just average.
And this right here is why Spun Out cannot be more than a 2.5 from me: I have nothing else to say.
I liked the book just fine, but I also won't remember it in a week's time............
