Strong, Silent Type (Rough Riders Novella)

Strong, Silent Type (Rough Riders Novella) is such a hot and sweet tale of second chances.


Tough, taciturn…And a fool for letting her go…

Wyoming rancher Quinn McKay was biding his time until his levelheaded wife came to her senses and called a halt to this trial separation—never believing their marital rough patch would drag on for a coon’s age.

Libby McKay knew when she married the gruff, laid-back cowboy that he wasn’t prone to blathering on about his feelings. But three months have passed and her stubborn-as-a-mule husband is still living by himself in the horse trailer. It seems he’d rather hold onto his pride than hold onto her.

When Quinn realizes Libby is determined to move on if he doesn’t change, he offers her one weekend of uninterrupted sexual decadence to rekindle their love life and to hash out their differences.

Reigniting the passion is easy. The hard part comes after the sheets have cooled and they find out if what remains is strong enough to survive past mistakes…

Ceej’s Review:

As I read the previous books and read a little about Quinn and Libby, I had hopes that they would eventually get their HEA.  Strong, Silent Type is that HEA.  It just goes to show that sometimes, we have to work for our happiness.

Quinn…is like the title, Strong, Silent Type.  He wouldn’t say more than he had to unless it jeopardized his marriage.  I give Quinn credit for stepping outside of his comfort zone to win his wife back. 

Libby…is not the Strong, Silent Type.  However, she was guilty of being silent when it mattered, too.  Luckily, she was smart and in love enough to follow Quinn’s lead.

I liked this book though it wasn’t one of my favorites and it didn’t hit me like the others did.  There is love and lust, sorrow and joy, and serious hotness.  I just didn’t really connect with it.  I enjoy these books by Lorelei James, but this one was just okay for me because it didn’t pull me in.  As a fan of her work, I still look forward to more of her books!
