Publisher's Summary

Justice Lonesome has enjoyed a life of bounty. Even so, she's inherited the curse of the Lonesome. A poet's soul. Which means she's still searching for something. Searching for peace. Searching for the less...that's more. And when the foundation of her life is pulled out from under her, grieving, she goes to the mountains to find her oasis. She hits Carnal, Colorado, and decides to stay.
Deke Hightower lost everything at the age of two. He lost it again at 15. His life has not been about bounty. It's been about learning to live with less, because there's no way to get more. Deke's also watched all his friends go down to the women who gave them what they needed. He wants that for himself. But he knows that search isn't going to be easy, because he's a rider. His home is the road. That's the only place he can breathe. And the woman who takes her place at his side has to do it sitting on the back of his bike.
When Deke meets Justice, he knows she's not that woman. She's cute. She's sweet. And she's into him, but she's got it all, and Deke knows he won't fit in to that. So he holds her at arm's length. Establishes boundaries. And Justice will take it, because she wants Deke any way he'll let her have him. But when Justice finds herself a pawn in a dangerous game, Deke makes a decision. When he does, he has no idea he's just opened himself up to bounty.

Bounteous Boho Broad Beguiles Big Beautiful Badass

Bounty is the 7th installment in the Colorado Mountain Series. We first met Deke Hightower in the 2nd book, Sweet Dreams, when he protected Lauren in Tate's absence. Since then, Deke has been there for his buds through thick and thin, and in Bounty we finally get to find out what kind of woman will be his perfect match. Justice Lonesome does not disappoint. She's smart and funny, deep and thoughtful, loving and supportive, and most of all, she is fiercely loyal and all about standing by her man. This story has a bit of action and drama but not as much as some of the others in the series. This one is all about the journey, the trials and tribulations and the overall theme that, at the end of the day, there is an awful lot to be thankful for. And, of course, the epilogue just rocks. Beautiful.

The narrator is listed as Tara Ochs, and this caused me a mini hyperventillatory episode (like when my local stores stopped carrying Red Vines) because I LOVE Emma Taylor for this series. Aside from just being one who likes a series to be consistent, she's perfect. I mean, her voices for Max and Nina, Lauren and Tate, Bubba and Crystal, Lexie and Ty, Chase and Faye, etc. have been awesome, and I did not want them sullied by some newbie who would screw everything up. So before the release, I was like, "OK, Erin, let's hear how bad this Tara person is before we break out the Ben and Jerry's." So I went and listened to samples of her other books on Audible, and guess what? Not only does she not suck, she's Emma Taylor…or Emma is Tara. (It was pretty easy investigative research, so hopefully I didn't just reveal a secret.) I don't know. In any case, the audiobook itself is recorded as being read by Emma Taylor even though Audible lists the narrator as Tara Ochs, so if you are at all concerned about that, don't be.

We had many blasts from the past, including mentions of Stella and Mace, Lee and Indy and that stalkerish celebritramp from At Peace who wanted herself some Joe Callahan. We also get to "see" Cal, as well as Deacon Gates and catch up with all our favorite Carnal, Gnaw Bone and Chantelle residents. It's worth mentioning again that Emma's performance is as consistently flawless as in the last 6 books, and I can't wait to hear her do Wood's story and any more CO Mountain books KA has in her. Creditworthy? Um, yeah. This audiobook an absolute bargain for the full price, member price or credit. 21 hours of beauty. KA always delivers Bounty, and I'm very thankful for that.

I love, love, love, this series!! So to finally get Deke’s story I was on cloud nine and to be able to get the audio the same day the book come out EPIC!

Justice is perfect for Deke! They just fit; I loved getting to see the past and the present.
Getting to see how Jus is and how she relates to the whole group is pretty awesome how she just fits with them. She isn’t in to fame she is just who she is and doesn't apologize for it.

I loved getting to see the whole gang again esp. Kristal and Bubba! That was beautiful.
Christmas and Laurie! <3
Oh how I love me some Tatum Jackson yah baby.
And let’s not forget Joe Callahan, I mean come one can one book have this much hotness.

Watching Deke try and stay standoffish with Jus even though he felt the pull, he knew Jus wanted him but he wasn't going to go there. Until he finds out who she really is. I loved it.

Jus’s family makes me smile when her mom and step dad come for a “visit” not to check out Deke not at all.
Sigh I almost feel like it’s not a KA book unless I have some kind of tears.. .And yep I did, trying to put my make up on this morning and tearing up, yeah thanks KA lol.

Also I love the Wood chapter. Thank you for that! <3
I loved this boooooook, I love this seriessss…

Some of my favorite quotes.

"Never wanna leave my Justice, my home.
So I bring her with me, my baby Lonesome.
Don't matter, Justice is always there,
Always right there, no matter where I go.
My baby Lonesome,
Makin' it so I'm never missin' home."

"I’m gonna Crock-Pot the shit out of this winter.”

“Nothing’s changed from our time in the Camaro, sister. You got this, Krys. You got it, beautiful.”
