The night I’m released from prison, she’s in my bed.
It’s been eight years since I touched a woman, and the Native American beauty is half-dressed, beaten, bruised, and devastatingly exquisite.
We’re toxic together, but we want the same things. Blood. Vengeance.Violent relief in a warm body.
Beneath her touch, I’m alive. Against her skin, I’m redeemed. Buried inside her, I forget the past. Until the past takes her from me.
Prison made me cold, but losing Raina makes me cruel. Ruthless. Unforgiving. I killed before. For her, I’ll kill again. I’ll end this once and for all or die in my boots.

I was provided a review copy; this did not influence my opinion of the book.
This series has complex stories with complex characters. I have experienced all the emotions while reading it. With ‘Knotted’, Pam Godwin built a rollercoaster of emotions. The highs were thrilling and the lows were gut-wrenching. While reading ‘Buckled’, either my heart was in my throat, tears were in my eyes, or I was bellowing with laughter. With ‘Booted’, I felt disappointment. I had high expectations for Lorne’s story. After reading ‘Buckled’, I couldn’t wait to read his book and get inside his head. Sadly, I didn’t learn who Lorne was, what he thought about while in prison or what kept him going. I didn’t feel his struggle. We know why he made the choice to go to and stay in prison, but when he’s released, he showed no emotion toward his sister. I cared more about Raina than him. Her struggle and her fight were more interesting to me. Their relationship was full of fire, disagreements, and passion. Sadly, though, whereas with ‘Buckled’ I loved that the sensual moments complimented the story, and were not the focus, I didn’t feel the same with ‘Booted’. And, in fact, found myself skimming the sex scenes. While this didn’t work for me, I am in the minority. My friends who have read it really enjoyed it. So I do encourage you to read it. I would love to know your thoughts!
