    A phenomenal read! Don't miss it!

    After two years of relentless squabbling, Rhiss Thorpe and Ike Palmer had come to the conclusion that a truce was in order, at least until their best friends were married. It would not do to fight each other when you are respectively bridesmaid and best man. Little did they know that it would come in handy when one of them got hurt! A friend of mine had recommended I read Lorelei James’ books. While I implicitly trust her, I was a tad concerned that RACKED AND STACKED would consist mostly of sex scenes with a flimsy story to hold the steamy bits together, since it was the impression I had got from reading some reviews of the author’s past work. I am overjoyed to admit that my fears were entirely unjustified, as RACKED AND STACKED is absolutely brilliant! I adored Rhiss, her foul mouth and unrepentant independence and her hold-no-prisoner attitude; she’s someone I would love to call my friend. Ike’s character is unlike anyone I have ever read about, and this is due entirely to Ms. James’ extraordinary writing skills at fleshing out her characters. Watching Ike and Rhiss go from enemies to more, was positively enthralling! Ms. James made me go through the wringer, as RACKED AND STACKED is all show and no tell. At all! Which is nearly a novelty with this sort of trope; the author’s storytelling skills simply blew me away! Gripping from the very beginning, I was hanging on to every word, almost nothing predictable happened, and it was glorious! I also liked the fact that both Rhiss and Ike are blue collars, and have normal money worries; no over the top drama, no rescuing of damsels in distress – Rhiss would have had a fit – everything was just perfect! Lorelei James was a new-to-me author who, with one book, vaulted to the top of my contemporary romance author list. If you like a romance that is entertaining, intelligent, with characters who behave like adults, not teenagers, I could not recommend RACKED AND STACKED and Lorelei James any higher! This is truly a remarkable book!

    Racked 4 Stars

    “Racked and Stacked” the ninth book in the “Blacktop Cowboys” series is an entertaining snarky romance where frienemies become lovers despite the stubbornness that keeps them apart. Rissa and Ike are two very strong characters that leap from the pages and grab reader’s attention right from the start and the chemistry between them sizzles with a strong electrical current that singes the pages all while these characters do their best to fight their attraction. Readers can’t help but become caught up in their romance as the characters capture hearts, send sparks flying in every direction and spark spontaneous laughter throughout their very fiery and passionate struggle to out stubborn the other and overcome their issues in order to even begin to think about a relationship. The plot is fast paced and keeps readers on the edge of their seats with anticipation of what Riss and Ike will come up with next and just how will they sabotage themselves again. There is also lots of friends and family to add their opinions to the mix which keeps this couple working hard to overcome the odds and those same friends and families adds to the fun and laughter of the story with their own shenanigans as well. The romance and the characters also has realistic problems that the Riss and Ike will have to overcome which adds depth and makes it easy to connect to these wonderfully lively characters. I thoroughly enjoyed Racked and Stacked and I couldn’t help but feel as if I really got to know Riss and Ike through Lorelei James creative writing that brings the story, the scenery and the characters to vibrant life.

    A great enemies to lovers!

    Ris and Ike were a lot of fun to read about! They both have a wicked sense of humour, an innate ability to set each other off, and great big hearts. Ris is used to living life her own way, on her own terms, but once she gets to know Ike, she really starts to like him. Ike has always put his family first, but with Ris, he wants explore the sparks between them. Neither has had experience with this, and both make their share of mistakes. They also learn a whole lot about themselves, and each other, and the factors that have shaped their lives Both also have their own share of insecurities, and that was another aspect I loved about them. This book handled so clearly that men also get depressed, about life, about who they are. Ike had buried himself for so long, kept to himself, he didn’t see this. It also pointed out that men also have pressure to look a certain way, and could have body image issues as well. These aren’t preached, they are woven into the story, and I loved that they were there. Larissa was happy with who she was, how she was, but always felt less than. She also felt bossed around, and rebelled just the sake of rebelling sometimes. She learns, he learns, that they compliment each other perfectly, and their relationship is going is going to be a wild ride!

    New Favorite Book Couple

    Another great story in the Black Top Cowboys series. Ike and Riss have a love hate relationship, they love to hate each other. Until their respective best friends decide to tie the knot. That is when they choose to call a truce. I really enjoyed reading this enemy to lovers story. I’ve been hoping these two would get their own book and I’m glad they finally did. I cannot wait to read the next book in this series.
