U-Turn [Bounty County #4]

By: Maren Lee


Ryan Blakesly respected Katie Hamilton’s wishes when she pushed him away. She always characterized their relationship as ‘just a booty call’ and he always thought that he wasn’t good enough for her anyway. His Katie deserved the best; and the best wasn’t a 40-something-year-old divorced dad of teenagers. But Ryan’s spent the last 9 months regretting ever walking away. When he learns she’s engaged to marry another man, Ryan needs to make a decision: go after her and ruin his friendship with her older brother, or turn a blind eye and let her go forever.

Katie is engaged to a successful surgeon, but something doesn’t quite feel right. When her former booty call barrels his way back into her life, her doubts only grow stronger. When Ryan left, it was for good reason: he’s eighteen years her senior and a coworker and friend of her older brother. As if that wasn’t enough, Ryan never wants to marry or have children again. Katie knew if she didn’t cut him loose she’d fall in love and end up with a broken heart. But now that he’s back…

Will Katie walk away from her fiancé and into Ryan’s arms? Will Ryan get over his insecurities and be the man that Katie needs? Can they compromise in spite of their age difference? When decisions must be made, will love be enough?





5 Stars to U-Turn by author Maren Lee.
Oh. My. God! This book was so hot, so sexy, so dirty. Damn was I laughing too! Maren girl… out. of. the. park!

Holy Cow! Ok, so that was not what I was really thinking of saying but since I need to keep my reviews PG rated……..

This Book! Oh wow! First let me say I am not at all surprised at how much I loved this book. U-Turn is book four in Maren Lee’s Bounty County series. Hot cops people! I fall more and more in love with this series after each book. Maren is a very talented author when it comes to storytelling. She weaves a complex story with complex characters. We have romance, suspense, angst, heartache, some violence and so much humor. One minute I’m anxious and in the next, I’m laughing. All in all a very well written, well balance novel. U-Turn has it all.

Ryan and Katie…….

Ryan was introduced to us in the early books of the series. As well as a sexy cop, Ryan is a divorcee, a father of two teenagers and he is 42 years old. Mature and very experienced, 😉 Oh, let me not forget to mention how incredibly hot he is. One look at him in the buff and you will be squeezing your thighs! This Book was hot and erotic. A blush worthy read!

Katie, who we also met briefly, earlier in the series is Jake’s much younger sister. However, Katie is very mature for her 24 years when you compare her to Ryan’s 42. She is also independent, loyal, personable and not afraid to be herself with Ryan. She has no hang-ups about their age difference.

If you read book three, Gridlocked which is Wesson and Molly’s story, than you know that Ryan and Katie have already “met.” Ok, so maybe they did a bit more than just meet. Regardless, they are not together when U-Turn begins months after the last book left of. In fact, Ryan will soon realize, if he wants his HEA, he’ll have to step up his game. Ryan’s devotion and persistence in getting Katie back was intense and best of all, believable. I won’t give you details because this book is basically the slow build of their new relationship.

Ryan and Katie have great chemistry. You can feel the tension crackle in the air every time they’re together. Every. Time! Maren Lee did such an amazing job with this second chance story. And those steamy scenes? Oh my!

As I mentioned earlier there is some suspense that continues with the Bounty County series and this adds even more depth to the story. From page one I was completely engaged. In addition to loving Ryan and Katie’s story, I absolutely loved that I got to visit with my favorite characters from previous books in the series. I do admit that while Ryan is one heck of a sexy beast, Wesson will always have a bug chunk of my heart. There is no hero like him. At least I have never read a hero that comes even close to Wesson. His personality is just as unique as he is swoon-worthy.

All the books in the Bounty County series can be read as standalones. However I do recommend you read them all in order. I promise you won’t be disappointed.

Add Bounty County by Maren Lee to your TBRs.
In order:
Ride Along (Justin and Chloe)
Changing Lanes (Jake and Lane)
Gridlocked (Wesson and Molly)
U-Turn (Ryan and Katie) *Coming Soon!
Untitled, next in series will be Smitty and Anne’s story.

This is my honest and unbiased review. Thank you for taking the time to read it. 🙂

About Maren:

Mountain woman, wine drinker, reader, writer. Former bartender, current contemporary erotic romance novel author living in the tiny mountain town of Atlanta, Idaho (“Coldlanta”) with my mountain man hubby (RAWR), three dog children, and one weird-ass cat.

I started writing Ride-along pretty much because some of my cop friends dared me to do it. Never one to back down, I decided to do it and then shove it in their faces. So I did it! And during the process I realized I liked doing it! So much that I decided to keep it up! Changing Lanes and Gridlocked are available now on Amazon and free on Kindle Unlimited. I am currently writing book four, U-Turn. I have 8 books in mind for this series! I am very excited for you to meet all the boys of Bounty County.
