Review: Buckled by Pam Godwin

I protect what’s mine.
The ranch, my family, our buried secrets.

Nothing will stop me from reassembling the life that went terribly wrong.
Not the law.
Not our enemies.
Not even Maybe Quinn.

The gorgeous, quarrelsome journalist shouldn’t have meddled.
I shouldn’t have let her stay.
But she’s hiding something in those deceptive blue eyes.
Something deeper than her thirst for a news story.

I make a deal with her to buy time.
To unravel her lies. To play with her. To satisfy my darker appetites.
When she buckles beneath my belt, I’ll send her away.
Unless I buckle first.

Jarret & Maybe
5 Stars

So, God help me but I’m a sucker for a sexy cowboy and Jarret is just what the doctor ordered. These two seem like an unlikely pair with Maybe being a city girl who could piss off the pope and Jarret being all bang on my chest and claiming his ground kind of guy, but sit tight, strap in, and get ready for one wild ride.

Jarret is a ladies man to say the least. He’s probably been with half the town and making his way through the other half when we catch up with him. He may be Jake’s twin, but he’s definitely got his own way of dealing with difficult out of town women. Consensual ways of course! LOL!

Maybe is on a mission and she won’t stop until she’s found out exactly what she needs to know. She’s harboring evidence that may or may not break her investigation wide open or crumble it. I immediately fell for her as she’s this tiny little spitfire that you just can’t help but love. She stares danger right in the face, but doesn’t back down for anything. My kinda gal!

The supporting character cast isn’t too large. Of course Jake and Conor are back in the picture and impressing the hell out of me with how far they’ve come. There are a few other characters that will be mentioned more in the next book Booted so we’ll just leave them there for now.

This was another excellent installment into the Trails of Sin series and they just keep getting better and the plot keeps getting thicker. This story is so gripping and the character are so intense. The dialogue flows and feels natural. The pacing is perfect. I am amazed at how much I have connected with each and every one of these characters. I love this series!!!
