Branded as Trouble by Lorelei James Review

This quickly became one of my favorites in the series just a few chapters in to it. This book had a lot more laughs than the others in the series.

“It’s hard to trust the future when you’ve been branded by the past.

As a walking advertisement for the tattoo shop she’s set up in a small Wyoming town, India Ellison is well acquainted with preconceived notions. Despite the odd looks and off-color comments about her off-color hair, life is good. She’s clean and sober, dotes on her sister’s kids and, best of all, spends most of her free time with her best buddy, cowboy Colt McKay.

Reformed bad boy Colt never expected three years of sobriety to lead to three years of abstinence. Curbing his craving for booze and random sexual encounters is nothing compared to the ever-increasing craving for his hot-tempered, hot-bodied best friend, India. Too bad she’s his A.A. sponsor. Too bad she hasn’t a clue that Colt’s been head-over-bootheels in love with her from day one.

After an unexpected, steamy interlude, all India can think about is riding the sexy cowboy instead of her motorcycle, even when Colt is determined to show her a slower ride is worth the wait.

Or are they risking their friendship for a fling that could burn them both? ”

Colt McKay is not only a sexy cowboy but he has this other caring side to him that I just fell in love with. I loved the interactions with Colt and his family. Neither Colt or Indy ever had a real relationship, but finding it out together was a journey all in its self. Laughter, tears, and determination cover this story. Taking time for yourselves and getting to the next level is a big step.

I was extremely happy for Colt staying sober through the hard times just in this story that threw him for a loop. Finally the family’s so-called mess up finds his way and makes peace with his family. This story just had more of a real feel to it than most

I’m happy to have run across this series. At first I wasn’t so sure but in reading about this family and how they all have something to prove to others and themselves was an amazing ride. Now on to the next McKay in Shoulda Been A Cowboy.
