by Lorelei James (Author)
This review is from: December 12, 2016 By Kay Daniels (eReader Edition-Goodreads)
I apologize for not writing this review sooner. I read Hang Tough over a month ago and I somehow lost track of it in the midst of the holiday hustle and bustle. So without further ado, on with the review……
Hang Tough is the eighth novel in the Blacktop Cowboy series. Lorelei has a few novellas tucked in among the full length novels, but this particular book focuses on Tobin Hale, a real sweetheart of a cowboy who has been long overdue to meet his perfect mate. As a matter of fact Lorelei about did all of us faithful readers in at the end of her last novel (Wrapped and Strapped) when Tobin announced he was leaving. That sweet man leave?! He couldn’t leave. What he needed was a swift kick in the pants and then he needed love and he needed it fast.
I’ll let you in on a little secret, Lorelei didn’t disappoint. She found Tobin the perfect girl.
Tobin was tired of living his life in a holding pattern, watching everyone else move on with theirs. He had plans which involved moving on and out of Muddy Gap. But before Tobin could leave town, Garnet asked the young cowboy for help and it just so happens that Tobin has a soft spot for all of the Mudlillies. A group of rambunctious women who also happen to cause havoc all over town. Garnet is desperate and Tobin is just helping out his friend, or so he keeps telling himself. When Garnet’s family gets wind of a young cowboy moving in with her, well, it doesn’t take long before Jade Evans, the granddaughter of the infamous Mudlilly, shows up in town. However, Jade believes the sexy, young cowboy is there to take advantage of her grandmother and Jade will go down swinging defending her grandmothers honor even if Garnet tries everything to keep those two apart. Jade and Tobin just don’t realize that the harder Garnet tries to keep them apart the more they want to be together.
This book was such a pleasure to read. A complete cat and mouse game of watching two “kids” trying not to get caught as they test their boundaries. They are both caught in a game they didn’t even know they were playing and it was a complete joy to read.
Tobin has always been a favorite character of mine and I was so happy that he finally received his happily ever after, that will also keep him around in the series.
