About WOUND TIGHT:
From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Lorelei James comes a crossover story in her Rough Riders/Blacktop Cowboys® series…
A May-December romance hotter than the 4th of July…
Bull rider Justin Donohue spent his youth hell-bent on winning world championships. After hitting the big 4-0, Justin takes a job at the Grade A Ranch and Rodeo School, where he immediately locks horns (and lips) with the sexy, sassy Callie—a 22-year-old cowgirl set on seducing him. Discovering their age difference doesn’t deter Callie; neither does Justin’s warning that she deserves more than a busted-up former rodeo cowboy.
From the moment Callie Morgan encounters the hot-as-fire new ranch hand, she knows his gruff manner is an attempt to mask his attraction to her. But she’s never backed down from a challenge, especially not when Justin’s actions speak louder than his denials. Callie doesn’t give a damn that he’s older than her or what others might think of their relationship. The uptight cowboy needs to relax and she’ll do whatever it takes to loosen him up, proving there are no age restrictions when it comes to lust…or to falling in love.

***5 ‘Team Callie’ Stars***
Even if I hadn’t been all kinds of giddy at getting my hands on Wound Tight, that prologue would’ve grabbed hold of me and had me NEEDING to dive into it ASAP because Oh. Boy! I can’t recall the last time a prologue had me going “Oh. NO she/he (??? *BSEG*) didn’t!” the way this one did. It set the tone perfectly for Justin and Callie’s story and kept me turning the pages until there were no more words to devour.
I’ll readily admit that I never thought too hard over Justin Donohue. It’s not his fault that he was pushed to the sidelines thanks to the delicious smexyness that was the Glanzer and McKay men as well as his own brother, so when he showed up in Tripped Out it took me a minute to remember who he was and when I did, I wanted to know what he’d been up to all this time and I have to say that I honestly really liked the man. While he is a suspicious sort, understandable considering what he’s been through, he is a good man. He has a solid core of honor that keeps him grounded and charisma that makes him intriguing.
But the true start of the book was Callie. This woman is a force to be reckoned with. Life hasn’t been an easy one for her, but instead of making her cynical, it’s made her mature for her age and determined to achieve her dreams. She works hard and doesn’t mince words. Sassy, sweet and self assured, Callie has a vibrancy to her that pulls you in and doesn’t let go.
As far as Justin and Callie’s journey to their HEA goes, it was a fun and smexy one. The sexual tension between them was intense and their bantering was a lot of fun. I loved how well matched they were on every level and how, once a few issues were worked through, they came together and found that they were a perfect fit.
I’ve said this a million and one times, but I’m a huge #fangirl of the two series that have collided in this novella, The Blacktop Cowboys series & The Rough Riders series, so a portion of my enjoyment of this novella was getting to hangout a bit with Keely and Jack (All Jacked Up/RR #8), catching up with Breck and Cres, as well as doing a little reminiscing about the “good old days”.

About Lorelei James:
Lorelei James is the New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author of contemporary erotic western romances set in the modern day Wild West and also contemporary erotic romances. Lorelei’s books have been nominated for and won the Romantic Times Reviewer’s choice Award, as well as the CAPA Award. Lorelei lives in western South Dakota with her family…and a whole closet full of cow girl boots. From Lorelei: “Why do I have a particular fondness for all things western? Well, I’m a fourth generation South Dakotan, living in the Black Hills, which is chock-full of interesting characters, including cowboys, Indians, ranchers, and bikers. The geographical diversity of the surrounding area showcases mountains, plains, and badlands. Living in and writing about rural settings gives me a unique perspective, especially since I’m not writing historical westerns. Through my fictional world, I can show the ideals and the cowboy way of life are still very much alive.”
