BOOTED, Book #3 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.
The night I’m released from prison, she’s in my bed.
It’s been eight years since I touched a woman, and the Native American beauty is half-dressed, beaten, bruised, and devastatingly exquisite.
We’re toxic together, but we want the same things. Blood. Vengeance.
Violent relief in a warm body.
Beneath her touch, I’m alive.
Against her skin, I’m redeemed.
Buried inside her, I forget the past.
Until the past takes her from me.
Prison made me cold, but losing Raina makes me cruel. Ruthless. Unforgiving.
I killed before. For her, I’ll kill again.
I’ll end this once and for all or die in my boots.
My ARC Review:
The final book in the Trails of Sin trilogy, these must be read in order to understand and fully appreciate the story line, so ensure you have read #1 Knotted and #2 Buckled first!!
I was really looking forward to this final book, Lorne had me intrigued from book 1 and couldn’t wait to find out his story!
Lorne hasn’t had an easy life, imprisoned for the past 8 years, going in as a scared boy and coming out as a prison hardened man. Both he and his family can’t wait for him to be back home, but he finds it difficult to adjust to being back to normal life. He can’t stand being inside the house, preferring to sleep out under the stars, can’t stand being around people, he’s cold, closed off, angry, abrupt and suffers from nightmares.
His bed is occupied by Raina, the girl Maybe rescued from John. She’s been battered, abused and raped by him for the past 2 years, but there’s far more to her story than she’s telling. Her plan is to kill John for everything he has done.
We met Raina in the previous 2 books and I wasn’t sure what to expect, I wasn’t too sure about her, but as the story progresses and you get to find out more about her, my opinion changed and she went from being meh to an awesome and strong woman!!
Everything about Lorne should frighten her, but she stands up to him, she is a spitfire and doesn’t back down easily. Lorne finds her fascinating and stunning, she is beauty and temptation and sin all wrapped up in one. They are at each other constantly, pushing each other’s buttons, neither backing down, their attractiveness and chemistry just off the chart!!
Lorne was to very patient and caring with Raina, who didn’t know love and how to love, he shows he has a wonderful softer nature more than just the hard nosed, sexy AF cowboy he portrays!
Jake, Connor, Jarret and Maybe also feature heavily in here as their family of four soon become a family of six, and watching them interact with each other was fantastic!
A brilliant end to this trilogy, I loved the whole series – heartbreaking, tragic, sweet, soulful, passionate, dramatic and seriously sexy hawt!! Highly recommended reading.
