B.J. is not one to beat around the bush; her refreshing honesty will have her winning a place in readers hearts. Enormously entertaining and a difficult book to put down.

Originally posted at: [...].

One rough around the edges, smart-mouthed tomboy is no match for Tommy Creek Texas's too good to be true golden boy, but when they come together it's hotter than a Texas wildfire.

Ms Kage gives us a most unique plot/story line in her contemporary romance The Trouble with Tomboys by giving her readers a 180 twist to this all to common James Dean-esque bad boy hero paired with Miss Goody-Two-Shoes heroine out to win his heart and change his wild ways. Ms Kage in her storytelling majesty gives us airplane flying, cigar smoking, potty mouth BJ Gilmore and couples her with too good for his britches not to mention too sexy for his shirt widower Grady Rawlings and then she let's the games begin. And begin they do as she throws us into this incomparable tale with her Texas drawl dialogue that flows throughout the novel and throwing in some hard living, hard talking scenes that pop from the pages into our mind as she paints her words into pictures we can actually visualize.

Her characters are all so important to her story and they all lend a hand in the telling of the tale from the one liner all the way to the stars and supporting cast of players. Her hero, Grady and heroine, BJ outshine the rest as she takes us through the trials and tribulations of their romance. Her readers will cry with them, laugh with them and pull for them as they stumble their inept way to their most deserved happy ever after. The romance is funny and sad, it's heartwrenching and heartwarming and her audience will feel then entire spectrum of emotions right along with her characters. Her love scenes are very physical, visceral and descriptive and yet we see and feel the longing of the couple and the love that evolves.

I couldn't bring my self to finish reading this book. I could only choke down a couple of chapters till I just couldn't waste any more of my time. I've read many of Linda Kage's books which I have loved but this one is worthless. The male char is gloomy which yes he should be since his wife died but he was really depressing. The female char made me so mad I just felt like I wanted her char to die off in a horrible accident!! He didn't want her and she just kept pushing and pushing, butting into his business and putting her hands all over him when he was trying to get away from her... WTH!!! The female char is suppose to be a "tomboy".. Not! she was a low class (we are talking about garbage here!), rude, uncaring (oh! she felt bad AFTER she basically screws with him mentally and gets him so worked up he screws her) gutter trash! From what I read on the book description she is going to end up pregnant with his baby from this. Man! that was it for me.. yeah he starts heating up for her but nope! just couldn't read any further.. that a nice guy would end up with something like that piece of trash nope! I think what pissed me off so much was that she messed with him so much mentally and kept trying to get in his business when he was trying to get AWAY from her. He was sad his wife and child died and she used that against him (even though she was nothing to him)... so yeah the female char is a piece of garbage and I wish she got knocked off in the first chapter!!

The very first thing that drew me into this book was the cover. It's fantastic. Once I acknowledged that the title and the cover were too interesting to be ignored I read the synopsis and there was no turning away at that point. The story, I'm very happy to say lived up to all my expectations. The story was warm and heartfelt and the main characters B.J. and Grady were charming and relateable. The author did a good job writing this story. She managed to bring across the joys of their budding love as well as the uncertainties as well as their confusion and sense of loss. I also truly enjoyed the southern dialect and phrasing which helped set the tone and for picturing their world and grounding the story. I liked that even though part of the story dealt with overcoming grief and finding the will to overcome great loss, the author managed to write this story eloquently. The story was well paced, interesting, and well written. Overall, greatly satisfied with this read.

You know when you find an author whose stories just click with you? That’s the way I feel about Kage’s work. After reading her other story about this family, I literally couldn’t wait to find out more. Finding ‘The Trouble with Tomboys’ was much more than what I thought it would be. The dialogue and character development is strong and moves the story along very well.

Considering that I read the follow up (A Fallow Heart) to this story first, I was very, very curious how Kage made it work. I'll tell ya how - she's a good storyteller. Before I go on, this is not a series – not that I could find evidence of anyway – and can be read independently of each other. Now back to the good stuff.

Raised in a house full of men, pilot B.J. Gilmore is the tomboy of Tommy Creek but that’s all good because she knows it and she’s fine with it. Grady Rawlings is the oldest son of the richest man in town and still works for the family business - he’s a good son and he’s a good worker. On one of his overnight business trips to Houston, Grady hires B.J.’s company to fly him there.

While in Houston, B.J. and Grady both drink a little too much at dinner. Oh geez, this doesn’t bode well for B.J. because she’s already spent too much time in the presence of her childhood and adulthood crush and she just can’t stand that he’s so unhappy. So what can a girl who’s always been crazy for the boy do? Help get him out of his funk of course. She’s already fed him, so that leaves just one more thing to do. I felt bad - for like a nano-second - for the brooding Grady because he couldn’t see B.J. as anything other than the tomboy that the town had relegated her to be.

I can’t say enough how much I liked this story, not as much as A Fallow Heart, but it was close. B.J. was a great character.
