Mar 10, Duchess Nicole rated it did not like it Shelves: I wuz hankerin’ fer some sexy ruttin’ ‘tween two shitkickers and their little filly. I ain’t got nuthin’ but that. There’s more breedin’ in this here book than burnt hair durin’ brandin’ season, whooee, doggy!! Pardon the eye roll. This is my fourth book by Lorlei James, and it will be my last.
I read the first three in the Rough Riders series. To be fair, those were some of my very first erotica books, three or four years ago. So I was thinking that maybe my lower opinion of those stories was due to my inexperience or different expectations. However, I know better now.
Just because a book is shelved as erotica doesn’t mean that there isn’t damned good story, jams written and evocative. In fact, I’ve read some erotic romance books that utilize the intimacy of sex to make a story much more cofralled, and completely and utterly beautiful.
Megan Hart, Joey W. This, my friends, is pure smut. I don’t think anyone really professes it to be more, so I suppose if your expectations are hot cowboys, lots of sex But not for me. I think I said the same in another LJ review, but her books are more honky tonk than a honky tonk.

Her language is so over the top hick, her cowboys so freaking stereotypical cheesy that it borders on lame. I live in Texas. I grew up in Kansas.
I’ve been around rodeo, ranchers loelei farmers for my entire life. And still, I feel like I need to take a shower just to wash the hick off of me every time I finish one of her books. Her characters just try way too hard to be cowboy.
I’m not sure why I feel so disgusted. This really is a way of life for a lot of Midwestern people.
Corralled by Lorelei James – FictionDB
I think the way this particular story played out just rubbed me wrong. It’s the reason I don’t like menage stories for the most part. I don’t mind a menage scene or two in a book before a couple decided to be exclusive.
It adds to the titillation, it’s sexy as hell. But Hank and Kyle both want Lainie; in fact, they are vying for her for nearly then entire book.
And the loser doesn’t seem to walk away happy. During the course of the story, they are best friends and then rivals for her attention and time. That’s a hooch coming between two men who are thinking with their dicks. And as much as Lainie professes to want to stay impartial, she doesn’t.
She won’t pick between them, so she gets them both.
Imagine if the roles were switched and a guy was doing that with two girls One last point of contention for me was view spoiler [ when the book ends without any sort of retribution against the guy who tried to rape Lainie. This guy has her pinned against the lorelfi, choking her and telling her if she screams that he’ll knock her out and fuck her wherever he wants to while she’s passed out.
All because this guy is some hot shot bullrider. So douchecanoe is welcome to do this to someone else. Not only that, but he also learns that he is free to act as he pleases and his job won’t be in jeopardy. Corrlaled rarely give one star I will be removing the rest of the series and the Rough Riders series from my tbr. I’m really not the type to continue reading something that I know I won’t like just to rag about it in my review. I had hoped that my changing tastes would have allowed me to see this in a different light than I did years ago.
I got this from my library’s audio digital site, and I have to admit that while the narrator did a jsmes job, there’s only so much white trash you can listen to without it sounding utterly hokey and forced.

Not one of my favorite Lorelei James books, but a pretty good start to a new series about cowboys. I xorralled my problem with this one was that I didn’t really fall in love with any of the characters, and at times the background info about rodeos surrounding corralleed plot got a bit I’m sure that anyone interested in all the behind the scenes info about rodeos would love this book, it just isn’t a subject that I’m too interested in.
I realize that LJ jamrs to fill the reader in on what competin Not one of my favorite Lorelei James books, but a pretty good start to a new series about cowboys.
Loreleei realize that LJ had jamea fill the reader in on what competing in rodeos is all about, so that we could appreciate what the characters have to go through, but I just think she went a bit too far with giving us too much info. But maybe that’s just me. Lainie Capshaw, mid-twenties, petite, curvy, long curly-haired daughter of a legendary bull rider who died tragically in the ring, works the rodeo circuit as a sports med tech. She meets tall, dark, and studly bull fighter Hank Lawson, and after rebuffing his advances a couple of times doesn’t want to mix business with pleasure she finally succumbs to his persuasive charms.
They’ve been dating for a few months, and although Hank’s an excellent lover, he’s not very inventive or spontaneous. When Lainie meets a flirty blond Viking-esque bull rider from a different lorellei organization named Kyle Gilchrist, who is everything Hank is not, she can’t help but be smitten by him.
What Kyle lacks in height and bulk, he makes up for in spontaneity–their first time is a passionate quickie in a restaurant bathroom. So now Lainie is ‘seeing’ two men–she wonders, does that make her a slut? But since her guys compete on different rodeo circuits, chances are that neither will find out about the other, right? Not only do they find out about the other, but coincidentally, they know each other, and they’re friends, having gone to the same school growing up.
Now what should Lainie do? Neither one wants to give up Lainie, and Lainie refuses to choose between them she’d rather not see either if she must choose so they come up with an idea. Would Lainie like to share them? Or should I say, would Laine let them share her? And secretly they hope, may the best man win.
Since Lainie has some vacation time coming, she agrees to travel around the rodeo circuit with them for a couple of weeks from venue to venue while they compete in something called “Cowboy Christmas” as a way for Kyle to improve his ranking in the bull riding division. So can they do this? Can the men ‘share’ Lainie without becoming jealous, suspicious, and competitive?
And can Lainie do this without getting her heart involved?
At the end of “Cowboy Christmas” will she lose her heart to one of her men, or will they all just walk away after the good times are over? I’ll admit at the beginning I wasn’t too fond of Lainie and her two-timing ways. Yeah, yeah, she made a point to say how neither of her men said the relationship was ‘exclusive’, but still
