The Colorado Series by Kristen Ashley is one of my absolute favorites. I've read and re-read each book in this entire series three or four times depending on when the mood strikes.

The original cover designs (which usually make a huge impact in the choosing to read or not factor) didn't deter me from picking these up. But I've got to say that the latest redesigns of the cover for this entire series is something to make a fuss about. So here's where I do just that.

Kristen Ashley, Colorado Mountain Series

Kristen Ashley, Colorado Mountain Series

If you've never ever even heard of these books... first off... I'm surprised that it's even possible. Secondly, this is were I make a huge statement and that would be... "Read them!" Each one is amazing. I can't really say that there are huge differences in the overall awesomeness of each book.

But... Lady Luck (Book #3 in the Colorado Mountain Series)... is my number one choice of best book in this series so far. This book alone I've read at least 5 times over the last 12 months.

My second favorite in this series would be Sweet Dreams, but it closely shares the spot with The Gamble.

Now you should be reading these in the order in which they are labeled. There is a slight element of overlapping, so as not to spoil anything for you if you haven't read the first, second, third, fourth, fifth and then sixth - my advice to you is don't just pick one and start reading. You will be missing out on a whole lots of Kristen Ashley magic. Never-mind that in most cases, besides the main characters, you wouldn't have a clue of who references are made to if you've not read the prequels.

As is the norm with a KA work of art, these books are packed to the brim with passion, drama and gasping moments. The alpha males are more alpha than you've ever met. The female lead characters are all fun, quirky and more often than not hilarious.

This is one of the few series of books I'm saving to get my hands on a paperback copy of each. And you will want the same when you've completed them all.

Here's the blurbs for each book as well as an indication to the reading order of this series.
