BLOG TOUR - Gage by 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.

            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 thoroughly enjoyed this book and found myself reading it in one sitting, captivated from each page. Although part of a series, this book was a standalone and even though I hadn't read the other books, I found no problem in picking things up and enjoying it just as much. Tess Oliver is brilliant when it comes to the character description and development and you feel very much incorporated to the book as you read it.

I loved Gage and Summer, they were brilliant together and I loved the humour and verbal sparring between the two, and loved how a petite, fiery woman could bring a man such as Gage to his knees. These two were really lovely together and I loved seeing the story play out and watching these two become a large part in each others lives. Reading about these two has made me want to now buy the previous books and read about all the other couples we hear about, as if I enjoyed this book so much, I'm hoping that these will be just as brilliant.

This is a gem of a book and full of humour and romance with the touches of dilemma to completely grab your attention and make this a brilliant read. I cannot wait to see the next work from this author and wont hesitate in reading her work in the future. LOVED this book!
