Hang Tough is a touching story of two “misfits” finding their match. Both Tobin and Jade have felt like outsiders, each for their own reasons. To me, this makes their union so much sweeter because we all seek our perfect match. To be made to feel like forgotten outsider is a terrible feeling, so finding that one right person with whom you click makes for such a sweet HEA!
One of Lorelei James’ trademarks as a storyteller is her realistic characterization. Readers will fall in love with Tobin and Jade! All LJ fans have been in love with Tobin from the start, and I assure you his long awaited HEA is worth the wait! We get wonderful glimpses into the lives of all our Muddy Gap residents and little snippets of how their HEA’s are continuing. Tobin and Jade make a great addition to the Muddy Gap world - I hope LJ has more stories to tell in this world because I’m not ready to leave it! As always, Bravo Lorelei – I loved every word!
Just when I think Lorelei can't possible bring it again, she does. I've been waiting a while for Tobin's book as he stole my heart in the earlier BT Cowboy books and his story did not disappoint. I was ecstatic to read that the infamous Mud Lilies had an integral part of this story. I swear, those ladies crack me up!
Anyway, back to Tobin and Jade. It was funny to watch these two come together from their initial meeting and skepticism towards each other. As a reader, you could feel through the pages that they were mean to be and I had a smile on my face each time they interacted with each other. Poor Jade had so many insecurities and issues even though her GG is pretty darn amazing! It was wonderful to watch her grow and evolve into the confident woman that eventually won Tobin's heart. And Tobin...wooo wee, that cowboy is some kinda sexy. How he thought he was a loser by being unattached is beyond me! That man is grade-a Kobe beef of a man! He is sweet, kind, thoughtful and downright funny! Thanks to him, I will NEVER look at cupcakes the same way!
Jade is the granddaughter of Ms. G and is there to save her grandmother from a Younger Man and make sure she isn't getting into trouble. Tobin has moved into Ms. G's house to make sure her son isn't coming to put her in a home.
The sparks that fly from Jade and Tobin right off the bat are INSANE! I love stories where what is assumed to be hatred towards one another turns into passion.
The Mud Lilies are an ABSOLUTE RIOT and live up to their troublesome ways and you get to check in with a few familiar faces during the story as well.
Ms. James knocks another one out of the park with this installment and I of course can't wait for more.
Now this right here is why I love Lorelei James. We have a sweet, sassy and smexy as h*ll romance with a heaping helping of well intentioned, if not a little over the top, meddling from a cast of characters that I can’t help but love and adore.
Hang Tough starts almost right after Wrapped and Strapped ends and Tobin is at a crossroads in his life. He’s loved his time at the Split Rock, but needs more and has taken steps to attain what he is missing, but soon finds himself in the middle of a family squabble involving his favorite Mud Lily and the good ‘ole boy in him won’t let her deal with it alone. It’s every guy’s fear to be labeled as the “Nice guy” because it is typically means that they are about to be friend zoned, but Tobin really is a nice guy. He’s got more charm than he should, is a hard worker, has a generous heart and has integrity in spades and much of it has to do with how he grew up and the people who influenced him, both the good and the bad. And to see the man he’s become because of it makes it hard not to adore him.
Jade, like Tobin she’s also at a crossroads in her life, but doesn’t have a clue as to what she’s missing. She needs to be busy to satisfy her own sense of self accomplishment, but she’s running herself into the ground. So when she’s told about the young hunk who’s moved in with her GG, she finds herself on an unexpected journey that starts out being about protecting her GG and turns into so much more. Jade cracked me because she describes herself as shy and somewhat awkward in certain situations, but when she feels that your intentions are less than honorable she goes for the throat like a tigress protecting her cubs. I loved her wit and sass and it was fun to watch as she found what she’d been looking for, not only on the outside but on the inside.
Their journey to their HEA started off very rocky, which was actually quite entertaining since I realized things weren’t all that they appeared to be, but I liked seeing how they both affected each other and how it drew them towards each other time and time again. Once they get over their antagonism towards each other, which was a great scene, I loved how they were together. They may have grown up in very different environments, but they were each other’s missing puzzle pieces. Of course one of the best pieces of advice Tobin got came from a surprising source (which boosted my estimation of this particular person) but I liked how Tobin ran with it. Outside of how they started off, there wasn’t a lot of angsty drama going on and holy h*ll is Tobin f%cking hot! It’s always those nice guys, I tell you. But I loved where they were at the end of the book because it fit both of them.
And when it comes to this series I have to comment on the crazy, but oh so amazing cast of characters that we’ve come to know and love. The Mud Lilies were at the top of their game in this one, especially Garnet, and if I didn’t already idolize them and want to be them when I grow up, what they do in this book would have gotten me there. Then there’s catching up with the couple from the previous books and their growing families. We don’t get to spend time with them all and not everyone gets an update, but there was more than enough to have me be one d@mn happy camper, especially when it came to my absolute favs of the series. And those kids...Tobin has the perfect nickname for them all, but you’ll need to read the book to find that out. *Grins*
Diving into this series always feels like coming home. This is what family, whether it’s by blood or choice, feels like and I love getting lost in it. There were a couple of new developments in this one when it came to relationships between characters as well as some new characters introduced. Ike and Rissa and their extremely antagonistic relationship has me wanting to know what the h*ll happened between them and Streeter pulled at my heartstrings, so I’m keeping my toes crossed that he’ll get a book/novella somewhere down the road.
