Golden Train (The ‘Burg #3) by Kristen Ashley 


Tanner Layne and Raquel Merrick fell in love young, hard and fast and both of them knew a beautiful life they thought would be forever.

Until Rocky left Layne, no explanation, no going back.

Layne escapes The ‘Burg only to come back years later because his ex-wife has hooked herself to the town jerk and Layne needs to make sure his sons get raised right. Layne manages to avoid Rocky but when Layne gets three bullets drilled into him while investigating a dirty cop, he can’t do that because Rocky stops avoiding Layne. They make a deal to work together to expose the dirty cop but they have no idea the strength of their enduring attraction or the sheer evil at work in The ‘Burg.

As Tanner Layne and Raquel Merrick play their game and dance around the pull that draws them together, Layne has to discover the dark secrets buried so deep in Rocky’s heart she doesn’t even know they’re there at the same time untangle a sinister web of crime so abhorrent it has to be stopped... at all costs.

And to do it, Layne has to enlist everyone, including his ex-CIA mentor, Rocky’s detective brother, the town’s unpredictable informant and Layne’s two teenage sons all the while stopping Rocky from doing something crazy and keeping their game secret so Layne won't get himself dead.


4 out of 5 stars

Golden Trail was an excellent story to get lost in! Amazing characters, lots of drama and emotion, and a ton of suspense. Loved it!

I loved Layne and Rocky's story, it was intense and emotional and sweet and hot. There was so much underlying pain, it almost hurt to read at times but I loved learning their history and watching them heal and come together. There's a lot going on, a lot of stories happening, and I loved how it all connected. I couldn't wait to find out why Rocky left and was filled with so much anticipation as hints were given. The build to learning Rocky's secret was killer!

This is an extremely full and detailed story. It's well developed and full of so much depth, different layers, and emotion. This story is from Layne's POV and I loved his perspective. It made for so many wonderful moments with Rocky, his sons, his friends, and family. I felt it also gave it a completely different feel than the first two books in the series but it was still pure KA. I really enjoyed the suspense element in the story and all the drama associated with it. There are lots of players involved and a lot of different characters and aspects in play. While I enjoyed it, it was a lot to keep track of so while I was on the edge of my seat, it also felt rather drawn out at times since there was so much happening all the time.

This was such a great read with an amazing HEA. I love the way it left me feeling… just filled with happiness and all things good!
