Product description

Product Description

“You do know you’re trespassing, right?”
“I’m not trespassing.”
He quirked one eyebrow, the challenge clear. Then he looked pointedly at my chest again.
I crossed my arms. “My mother is married to the owner of this ranch.”
His eyes widened. “Is she? How nice for you.”
With a cocky grin, he tossed my shirt to me, but didn’t look away. “I’m crushed you don’t remember me, Sis.”

It was one of the most humiliating moments of my life. It was supposed to be private here, but I’d been caught sunbathing nude.

The hot cowboy got a much better look at me than I got at him, but it didn’t matter anyway. He was off-limits. I’d just met my stepbrother after ten years of avoiding the hateful brat.

During which, I guess we both grew up.

Bothered is Part 1 of Irrationally His, a novel presented as a 5-part serial. Recommended for mature audiences 18+ due to sexual content.

I decided to read all five books in the series before giving my final review of all of them. I thought they were sweet, funny and light-hearted. This isn't like some of the other stepbrother romances I've read, where the H and h grow up together. Except for one meeting at their parents' wedding, Travis and Chelsea have no relationship to speak of, and they're virtually strangers when he catches her sunbathing in the nude on her family's Montana ranch. She's mortified, of course, but Travis makes no apologies for enjoying the show. As a rough-and-tumble rancher's son, I expected this.

What I didn't expect (even as short as these novellas are) was how Chelsea made Travis work for her affections. But when he did, the fireworks exploded! I loved that she let him into her past, and that she had such an amazing talent that she used her artistic abilities to overcome the incidents that occurred both in high school and during the local rodeo. She wasn't the insipid, hapless damsel in distress, but she had difficulty with going after what she wanted.

Travis had secrets of his own, which were revealed in Broken after a huge misunderstanding sends Chelsea scurrying back to San Jose and to Cozy's condo. I love that Travis isn't coasting by, mooching off Daddy (as Chelsea mistakenly believes), and that his work allows him the freedom to be by his dad's side during Tex's final months.

The crazy success of Chelsea's artwork kinda threw me a bit, because I know in reality that rarely (if ever) happens. But it was written well-enough that it wasn't too fastastical and suspending all reality for me.

Cozy and Cody were the perfect supporting cast, helping their friends through the most difficult time in Travis and Chelsea's lives. I loved Tex, and I cried when I found out why he and Eloise were throwing a huge 10th-anniversary bash. I also cried at the end. ~sniff~ I use the strength of the emotional bond between the characters, and how well the emotions come across on the page, as a gauge between a good book and a great one. If the character's heartache brings tears to my eyes, then it's a great book.

Each of the five books were steadily paced, no important detail missed in the timeline. However, I did feel that Beloved was rushed. I expected sky-lighting explosions, and all I got was a single bottle rocket. I get that it spans the final months of Tex's life, and I'm glad they weren't drawn out, but I felt like I was being told what happened, rather than seeing it for myself. Beloved gets 2.5 stars for that alone, and made for a bit of a disappointing finale to an otherwise fantastic story.

I would definitely read this series again, as I felt it was worth the investment, but I really wish the author had taken a different approach with the last book. But I do thank you, Ms. Jacobs, for sharing your literary gifts with us.

This is a quick read that definitely left me wanting more. Chelsea is surprised when a hot cowboy finds her sunbathing topless on her step father's ranch, and when she realizes that the hot cowboy is her step brother Travis who she hasn't seen in 10 years, things get interesting.

Travis and Chelsea haven't seen each other in 10 years, their visits to see their parents were never in line, so neither one of them were expecting so much to have changed in the past ten years. Travis is cocky, and Chelsea is pushy, and together they are explosive. They can't get through a conversation without arguing, but are both their for their parents anniversary party, so they need to learn to deal with one another for the time they are both there.

The chemistry between these two is definitely hot, and both of them do want the other, but will not admit it, until one night when everything changes. They are HOT together, but the next day they are back to hating one another again. I really enjoyed the back and forth between them and am rooting for them to get together, but I feel as if Travis definitely has some secrets that we do not know yet, and Chelsea isn't sure what she is going to do with her life being jobless now. Then there is the fact they are step siblings.

I really enjoyed this book, it was a quick read, and I can't wait till the next installment is out in a few weeks. Chelsea and Travis are both strong characters and seeing the two of them pushing each other's buttons brings the sexual tension and the chemistry to a higher level.

If you're looking for a hot cowboy, and a "forbidden" romance, definitely consider picking up Bothered today!
5.0 out of 5 stars "Bothered" is satisfying to the very end... 24 September 2015

I was pulled in at once to this naughty romp on a ranch. There's lots of fun and anxious heat afoot in Bothered as Chelsea is found in a precarious position on her step-dad's ranch by none other than her gorgeous step brother, Travis. There's no blood relation, thank goodness, because he's a dreamboat with eyes for her. This is a short(60 pages) quick read that takes u into the characters minds and their carnal desires. "Bothered" is satisfying to the very end...

I really liked this story. The characters have spunk and personality. The story line is new and is moving steadily. The love scenes are super hot. It's a really nice beginning to this book. I have already bought the next 3 parts.
