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.
My ARC Review:
Book 2 in the Trails of Sin series, and this picks up straight after book 1 Knotted, so make sure you have read this a first!! I was excited to read this after reading book 1, I just knew Jarret and Maybe together would be one hell of a ride, and boy Pam did not disappoint!!! I couldn’t put this one down, it had me on the edge of my seat from start to finish, waiting for the secrets to be revealed, captivated by the intensity of Jarret and the strength of Maybe, its a scorching read!!
Jarret first meets Maybe in the local bar, he knows instantly she is snooping for a story, but there is something about her that captivates him, which is an unknown for Jarret. He decides to take her to the ranch to stay, knowing she has secrets also, but determined to keep her close to protect the ones he loves. Maybe thinks Jarret holds the key to her own secrets and that they are somehow tied together, and is unwilling to leave until she has answers, little does she know how much their chemistry and attraction will build until it reaches boiling point!
These two were perfect together!! Jarret is so intense!! He communicates not with his voice, but with his eyes and his actions, conveying everything he needs through these. Talk about smoldering, I could feel the heat coming off the pages!! Maybe is a strong character, giving as good as she gets, is willing to stand up to Jarret, yet also when she is with him her buried submissive side comes out and she finds herself letting go, all of which Jarret craves!! I loved the banter between these two and the sexual chemistry is off the charts, the thunderstorm scene in the field is just hot as hell!!!
There are lots of secrets to be unearthed in this one with twists and turns in the plot that I did not see coming!! I really loved this one, these cowboys are really getting under my skin!! I can’t wait to read book 3!!! Highly recommended reading!!
