Title: Hang Tough
When Tobin Hale stepped in to stop Garnet Evans’s son from railroading her out of her own home, he knew moving in with his favorite Mud Lily could be seen as strange. But nothing prepared him for the arrival of Garnet’s fiery, beautiful granddaughter, Jade—or her assumption that he’s up to no good...
While Tobin might be the hottest man Jade Evans has ever seen, his physical attributes won’t distract her from protecting her grandma from his sweet-talking ways. But the stubborn cowboy digs in his boot heels and refuses to leave. Stuck in close quarters together, Jade learns Tobin is the real deal—a hardworking, fiercely loyal man and she’s the one in danger of losing her heart.
And just when he was prepared to leave Muddy Gap behind, Tobin may have found the kind of woman worth sticking around for...

Tobin Hale had one foot out of Muddy Gap. He’s underemployed and realizes he’s going to have to move on to find a better job using his degrees. He needs to get on with his personal life also. He’s watched everyone around him find love and he wants that too. In the small, rural community of Muddy Gap there is no one for him. He’s very torn about leaving because he’s happy at the ranch.
Tobin is such a sweet guy. He’s great with the Mud Lilies, a group of wonderful women fifty years his elder. He’s universally well-liked and treats everyone he comes across so well. What’s not to love? His one fault is that he comes off too easy going, especially in relationships.
Jade is about the last person you’d expect to take to life in Wyoming. She’s bright, educated, talented and driven. She’s the ultimate city girl. Her parents are successful in NYC and she’s always assumed her life would be there. She loves her grandmother though and doesn’t mind taking some time to visit and see how Garnet is fairing after a series of events that has her dad worried.
Though Tobin and Jade seem to loathe each other and are definitely suspicious of each other’s motives, they are mutually attracted and it’s not long until they’re getting closer emotionally and exploring their sexual compatibility. And man are they compatible – hot and sexy.
I love the Mud Lilies. What a hoot that they’re having the time of their lives and being anything but what one expects of women their age.
Lorelei James consistently writes great books. She’s never disappoints. It’s especially hard to impress me since I’m from Wyoming where her stories are generally set. James captures the harsh living conditions, extreme rural landscape and hardy inhabitants perfectly. It’s often things like educated Wyomingites being forced to leave the home they love to find suitable employment or having to take two or more part-time jobs, that prove James just gets it.
