Branded As Trouble (Rough Riders Book 6)

Branded As Trouble (Rough Riders Book 6) reminded me of myself in a few ways and oh my!


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

Tattoo artist India Ellison is well acquainted with preconceived notions. As a walking advertisement for the tattoo shop she’s set up in a small Wyoming town, she’s used to off-color comments about her colorful tats and hair. Still, 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, Colt McKay.

Reformed bad boy rancher Colt never expected three years of sobriety to lead to three years of abstinence. Curbing his craving for booze is nothing compared to the ever-increasing craving for his hot-tempered, hot-bodied best friend, India. 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 as hard and fast as her motorcycle. But Colt is determined to show her a slower ride is worth the wait.

The friendship that helped them conquer their past is about to be the new addiction they feel to each other.


Ceej’s Review:

This is the first time I’ve read a Lorelei James book where the heroine and I had a lot in common.  This made the book even more enjoyable to me!

I must say that I admire both India and Colt.  They’ve both fought and won one of the hardest things to handle in life: the hurdle of sobriety.  This is not to say that they won’t ever struggle, but they made it to the other side and are dedicated to staying sober.  Their honest struggles with their desire to drink endeared them to me so much.  What impressed me was their strength in not giving in.

India…I said that she and I have a lot in common.  We’re both heavily tattooed, fight common misconceptions, and are willing to fight for love.  She’s not perfect.  She makes mistakes.  She isn’t considered a classic beauty.  However, she is beautiful in ways that others are not and that’s one the things that I loved about her.

Colt…I learned a lot about him in this book.  I admit that there was a time that I was annoyed with him.  However, what I learned changed my feeling about him.  I love Colt now.  He impressed me with his devotion and his strength.

What else can I say about Branded As Trouble?  It’s seriously HOT, full of struggles and triumphs, joy and laughter, lust and love, and complete understanding.  If you haven’t read it yet, what are you waiting for?  Lorelei James books rock!
