KNOTTED, Book #1 in the TRAILS OF SIN series
Genre: Dark Cowboy Romance
Series: HEAs with no cliffhangers. Each book is a different couple. Must be read in order.
I try to forget her.
Growing up together, Conor and I shared all our firsts.
First love, first kiss, first…
Not all our firsts.
We were sixteen the night she was violently assaulted while I helplessly watched.
I’ll never forget the sounds of her suffering.
Or my inconsolable agony when she left Oklahoma.
Years later, she returns to honor our teenage pact.
Except the boy she loved is gone, replaced by a ruthless cattle rancher knotted with secrets.
She doesn’t know my dark cravings or the trails of sin that lead to her.
I don’t deserve her, but one truth remains.
I was really engaged in the beginning of the story, especially with how close Conor, Jake and crew are. I loved how connected Conor and Jake were, even at such a young age. There was no denying the love between them. Then things took a turn and I wasn’t quite sure how I felt when it came to Conor. I was heartbroken over her situation but as she grew in age and distanced herself from one problem, I struggled with understanding her and some of the decisions she made. Then when things started to circle back, I couldn’t quite connect with the situation they were in. Something just seemed off to me. It wasn’t necessarily the characters as I liked them but just everything else. Maybe it’s because we were told about what happened instead of reading about it as it occurred, so I wasn’t as engaged. I’m not quite sure. Regardless, I did like the way things ended for Conor and Jake, and I’m definitely looking forward to reading more about Jarrett and Lorne.
