Tripped Out (Blacktop Cowboys #8.5) by Lorelei James #NewRelease #Review #BlogTour #Excerpt #BlacktopCowboys #1001DarkNights #Romance

From New York Times and USA Today Bestselling author Lorelei James, comes TRIPPED OUT, a new novella in her Blacktop Cowboys Series, brought to you by 1,001 Dark Nights! Be sure to grab your copy today!


Where there’s smoke…

Stirling Gradsky abandoned the corporate rat race for a more laidback lifestyle. So it’s ironic she’s stuck working with a hard-bodied, know-it-all scientist who treats her like a stoner instead of a stone cold business woman capable of running a large scale cannabis operation. Dr. Hot and Tattooed with the big…brain needs to stop sampling their product; he’s under the half-baked idea that he’s the boss.

Dr. Liam Argent’s doctorate isn’t in chemistry, but from the moment he meets his sexy new coworker, there’s enough heat between them to short out all the lights in the grow house. First item on his agenda? Clearing up the sassy, blunt blonde’s hazy notion that she’s in charge.

Sparks fly as their attraction blazes. But can they weed out their differences without getting burned?

I have to start out by saying how much fun this book was to read, from the constant barbs to practical jokes that were played on one another. This book had me laughing from beginning to end!

Stirling and Liam were your typical geeky/nerd types when they were teenagers, they were the brains in the classrooms that stuck to the straight and narrow path, they haven't strayed to far from that as adults but the straight and narrow road they once traveled is now curvy with a hit of some premium cannabis at the end of the day.

Even though Stirling and Liam have been pranking each other for ten months there is some definite sexual chemistry going on and you don't need to be a scientist to see it. When they finally give into their carnal needs the pages start to smoke it so hot. This was a great addition to the Blacktop and 1001 Dark Nights series but do not feel that you have to have read the other books in either series because this can totally stand on its own.

It was just her luck that she lost her balance as she slipped on her cowgirl boot, falling sideways into the coat tree, knocking it over with a spectacular crash.
So much for her stealth exit.
Liam raced around the corner. “Stirling? Are you…”
“Leaving? Yes. Get some rest, Dr. Argent. I’ll see you at work tomorrow.”
His eyes narrowed. “You’re pissed off at me.”
“What makes you think that?”
“You called me Dr. Argent.”
“It is your name, as you’ve repeatedly reminded me over the past ten months. Anyway, I’m not pissed off because you don’t want to discuss your past with me. It’s your choice. I’m not the type to nag or beg. But relationships require a level of trust from both parties, otherwise it’s superficial. I’ve had enough of that, so I’ll pass if that’s all you’re prepared to offer me.” She bent down to retrieve her boot….and found herself airborne with Liam’s shoulder in her stomach as he carried her in a fireman’s hold into the living room.
Stirling was so stunned by his caveman behavior she couldn’t speak.
Liam laid her on the couch and stretched out on top of her, preventing her escape.
The smart man had pinned her legs so she couldn’t knee him in the balls, either.
So she glared at him. She’d said her piece; in fact, she’d probably said far too much.
“Did you mean it?” he demanded.
“Mean what? Mean to leave? Yes.”
“No. Did you mean it that we’re in a relationship?”
The vulnerability in his eyes just…slayed her. “The pranks, the bickering, the one-upmanship… We’ve been in a relationship since day one, Dr. Dumbass. An adversarial relationship, sort of fucked-up, to be honest. But in that time… Have I permeated your thoughts to the point you aren’t sure if you want to strangle me or if you want to f*ck me? Do you have entire conversations in your head about what clever remarks you’ll toss off the next time you run into me? Or maybe you plan to cross my path just so we can have a snarky back and forth? Does your heart race when you see me? Do you imagine shutting my smart mouth with a steamy kiss? Do you fantasize about storming into my office, locking the door, bending me over my desk, fucking me in silence until we both explode, and then leaving without saying a word?”
“Yes to what?”
“Yes to all of it.”

About Lorelei James:

Lorelei James is the New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author of contemporary erotic western romances set in the modern day Wild West and also contemporary erotic romances. Lorelei’s books have been nominated for and won the Romantic Times Reviewer’s choice Award, as well as the CAPA Award. Lorelei lives in western South Dakota with her family…and a whole closet full of cow girl boots.

From Lorelei: “Why do I have a particular fondness for all things western? Well, I’m a fourth generation South Dakotan, living in the Black Hills, which is chock-full of interesting characters, including cowboys, Indians, ranchers, and bikers. The geographical diversity of the surrounding area showcases mountains, plains, and badlands. Living in and writing about rural settings gives me a unique perspective, especially since I’m not writing historical westerns. Through my fictional world, I can show the ideals and the cowboy way of life are still very much alive.”
