I'm going to start this by saying that Roustabout IS a standalone, you don't need to read The Traveling Man & The Traveling Woman first but if you want Kes and Aimee's story then you should definitely read them too!
Wow... So Tucker and Tera really surprised me, they were in no way, shape or form what I was expecting them to be, in fact they are everything I expected and SO much more. Tucker seems to be the happy go lucky guy that is always smiling but in Roustabout you get his POV and you get to see the man beneath the mask... Trust me when I say that he is worth the wait! He's hot, he's a daredevil and he has charisma in spades, Tucker will charm his way into your heart before you even realise what's happening. Tera isn't your average Senator's daughter, her determination is what makes her so likeable for me, she changes so much over the chapters that it's hard to believe she's the same person! She has her eyes well and truly opened and almost like a butterfly she breaks free from what she was and transforms, becomes her own person and man is she fierce, she fights for what she wants and for what she believes in and isn't ashamed to do so. Their story had me hooked from the minute I started reading, my kindle came everywhere with me until I finished where I was just trying to fit in a bit of reading time no matter how brief. They are amazing separately but together they are an unstoppable force. I still find my mind wandering to them and I don't think for one second that I'll only be reading this the once, I just can't get these two out of my mind. My emotions while reading this were like a tornado, switching and changing course quicker than I could process them, it had me tied up in knots!
Roustabout is told from both Tucker's and Tera's POV so you get to see what they are both thinking and feeling throughout the book. I love multiple POVs as you get both sides to the story, it just creates this anticipation where I feel like I'm in on a secret that the other character/s isn't, so I wait for the bombshell to drop with bated breath.
If you have read the previous books then you'll recognise some familiar faces, the biggest ones being the carnie's! It has to be said that the carnival magic that poured from the pages of the previous books is STILL there, even 3 books later I'm feeling the magic as strong as I was from that very first page.
Jane really has a talent with words and the way she weaves them together to create this magical tale is phenomenal, I am truly in awe of this woman! Another 5 star read, thank you so much for sharing these two with the world Jane!!!
The Traveling Man (Traveling Series, #1)
I was ordinary. Nice. He was extraordinary. And he wasn’t always nice.Moody and difficult, brilliant and beautiful, Kes scared me and he protected me. He could be incredibly hurtful and incredibly thoughtful. He wasn’t perfect, but he was perfect for me. He challenged me, he took me out of my safe little box and showed me the world could be magnificent. He was everything I wasn’t. Aimee Anderson is ten when the traveling carnival first comes to her nice little town. She doesn’t expect her world to change so completely. But meeting Kestrel Donohue puts her life on a different path. Even though she only sees him for the two weeks of the year when he passes through her home town, his friendship is the most important of her life. As a child’s friendship grows to adult love, the choices become harder, and both Kes and Aimee realize that two weeks a year will never be enough.
The Traveling Woman (Traveling Series, #2)
How many times do you gamble on love? When love has knocked you down, should you give it another chance? When does optimism become stupidity?And what happens when the man you’re in love with is never still, always moving, always traveling? Do you say goodbye, or do you leave behind everything that you’ve worked for, everything that you’ve ever known? Can a traveling carnival be my home? Oh. You thought I had the answers. No, sorry. No answers, just a lot of questions—and a heart that wants to rule my head. Can one person be my home?
