LISA'S REVIEW: Gage (Tess Oliver)


Gage is part of the Barringer Brothers series but can be

read as a standalone.

After nearly losing his friend in a logging accident, Gage

Barringer is convinced now more than ever that he needs to find a different

job. But his side business of breaking colts at the small Montana ranch he

inherited from his grandfather doesn't earn him enough money. He has his mind
set on running The Raven's Nest, a popular bar and restaurant near his ranch.
The original owner has died and Gage is waiting for it to be put up for sale.
But there is a five-foot-four, brown eyed, obstacle in his way, an obstacle
with lips made for sin and a voice made for breaking hearts. And Summer Donovan
is one road block Gage Barringer won't be able to find a way around.

I love this story! It was set up good and I was excited about an alpha mountain man.Gage is one sexy man that any woman would climb like a tree and many have. I did feel that this book was lacking a little of the wow that should have been there in this. I love that the book had drama but, none of the story was wasted on needless drama. I just didn't feel the emotions like I usually do. I laughed a lot in this story and that surprised me. I really loved the characters. I think that the ending was good but, was missing some of the spark of the earlier parts of the book. I kinda wanted an epilogue to get a little more of their story. I feel like we missed something at the end. Summer is great and took on a new life like a pro. This book was totally realistic in parts and a little off in other. I loved this book but, I am just not real sure what is the definite reason I am holding back from 5 stars. I think that most will love this. I loved Gage and Summer. I also love Seth and the other characters. The sex was hot and steamy and realistic. This was a story I could easily connect to and one I read in one sitting. I was blown away with parts of it. I was just left needing more. A great overall romance and one I won't soon forget. I love Gage and wish we could have had more from his POV.

            He looked at me a long moment.

"I want you so fucking bad, Summer, it hurts." He combed his long

hair back with his fingers and chuckled at some inside joke. "You have no

idea how bad."

            "Then what's holding you back?

It seems to me--"

            He shook his head. "Can't

explain it to myself." His dark lashes dropped as he stared down at the

floor, and when he lifted his face to me, I realized that I was falling hard

for him.

            "I guess I don't want to scare

you off." He shook his head. "Not that I'm scary in bed," he

quickly amended. "I don't want to come on too strong. Hell, I guess I'm

just trying to make a good impression."

            "Stop with the good impression

shit. I want a lasting impression, Gage."

            His pale blue eyes flickered in the

light as he looked at me. "I can do lasting." He crossed the room in

two steps. His arms curled around my back, and he pulled me against him. His

mouth covered mine. The kiss was long and hard and driven by that intense
longing that had been building up between us. He took hold of my good hand and
walked me down the short hall to my bedroom. He pushed open the door with his
boot and led me inside.



"I write romance for young adult, new adult

and those of us past the ‘new’ stage. My stories take place anywhere from 19th
century England to 21st century California. And you can count on a super alpha
in each book."
