Author: Jane Harvey – Berrick
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: September 9, 2015



Twelve years ago Tucker McCoy walked away from the hell that was his family with not much more than the shirt on his back. No regrets. Never once looking back. Living his life as a roustabout turned stunt rider with a traveling carnival keeps a smile on his face. His new family are the people he’s chosen to be in his life, the people who travel his road. Kes, Zach and Zef don’t share his blood, but they share his hopes and dreams. Understand his fears and know what makes him tick. They’re his brothers, his real family. If you keep moving, no one can catch you—it’s a simple rule. So when Tucker crosses paths with Tera Hawkins, he knows he should move on. There’s no woman that’s ever been worth breaking his rules for. Besides, she’s off limits, untouchable. He knows stronger men would walk away, but dammit, he’s always been weak. All he can offer her is a night she’ll never forget, but will that one taste be enough?

Review by: Tera 

I was so excited to know that we were going to be getting Tucker's story and it did NOT disappoint ...this novel is intriguing from start to finish ...I am so in love with these characters ...
    The like-ability of Tucker is off the charts for me ..he is so charismatic and charming and playful ....Tera (Sister to Kes) is driven and knows what she wants..And after finding out some family secrets focusing on new goals for herself ...trying to find her own way ..

   ~~“Love is in all the small gestures,TC"~~

    Reading this book is like catching up with family ..there are two previous books in this series ..which I LOVED as well...
BUT...this one is a Standalone novel and can be read as such.....There is so much growth that happens with Tucker and Tera ..individually and together...Tera is so confident and her willingness to put herself out there...I felt...was exactly what Tucker needed ..someone that was willing to go the distance for show him ...that he is WORTH it ..

  ~~“Can’t we make our own road, choose our own path?”~~

  Peeling away the layers of Tucker takes a strong and caring person ...with some patience ...and Tera has all that in spades ...The writing is superb and griping ..the characters come to life....

   ~~I learned one important fact: it’s okay not to have all the answers.~Tucker~~

  At the end of this read I was giddy ...a bit emotional ..and left with that feeling in your heart know the one ...the one you get after you've read a book that will always stay with you..the one that put you through "THE FEELS"....Do yourself a favor and go on this journey with them will not regret it ...Highly Recommended Read!!!

This Author Stuns Me!

I will truly speak on behalf of my heart that Miss Jane Harvey-Berrick is truly a natural at creating stories that leave you feeling true raw emotion, the kind of emotions that will have you always remembering "the book" and never forgetting it - (something that can easily be done when reading so much) - I've read her novels and will continue always reading them because she just so happens to be THAT AUTHOR in which you can just avoid reading blurbs, reviews and just go straight to the "One Click Buy Button". Roustabout is a perfect example.

To get the full picture of this amazing story, it would be a good idea to read The Traveling Man & The Traveling Woman but you technically don't have too. This book takes you on it's own carnival ride, preferably a roller coaster. Plot twists, various emotions that are all intense, and then you have Tucker. Tucker, a beautiful man with a beautiful heart that just doesn't quite know how happy he makes others. He is a bright light when it's dark and now it's someone else's turn to turn his light back on full force.

I, personally feel the need to always write my reviews immediately after I've read the book because the powerful feelings within me from are lingering strong and I just need to get the words out. It didn't surprise me in the least when I went into this book and walked away from it longing for more. JHB has done this to me many times prior, my first book was Dangerous To Know & Love and that book is one of my all-time very favorite books written and it just so happens that there just might be a connection from one book to the other?? Only the wise author knows what's may be up her sleeve or can only hope!!

Five Stars is the highest they'll let me give but I'm very generous where this story is concerned. Jane Harvey-Berrick has put light in my darkness by her writing. When you just need a break from reality, fall into this book or any of her books.

Thank You Miss Jane for sharing your incredible stories with the Literary World.

Jane does it again!!! Roustabout is an amazing addition to the Traveling Series!!! The book is so well written with so much detail it makes you feel like you are in the story, seeing everything with your own eyes. 

Tucker was first introduced in The Traveling Man and again in The Traveling Woman and I was so happy to hear he was getting his own story and an amazing story at that! There was always a little bit of mystery behind Tucker and we finally find out what that is. My heart broke for Tucker, he had endured so much as a child. Then as an adult he had so many twists and turns to get through, he just couldn't catch a break. With each turn of the page I kept wanting more!

Tera was first introduced in The Traveling Woman and at first she didn't seem like the type of woman who would be compatible with Tucker...but they do say opposites do attract. But these two where more opposites on the outside, on the inside they were perfect for each other. I love the playful banter back and fourth. It had me laughing out loud! 

It was great to read about two character's facing their fears and taking chances to get what they want. I did find that this book had a little more "heat" than the previous books, but maybe that's because of Tucker! And I am certianly not complaining!  Overall, fantastic story, definitely a must read. While it can be read as a standalone, don't miss out, read other two books in the series because they are equally amazing!

The motorcycles circled the stadium like gladiators, or maybe like men jousting on horseback in days gone by: charging at each other, daring each other, until eventually they were ringed around the outer fence, each preparing for their first jump. Zef went first, blasting off the ramp, followed a split second later by Tucker in the opposite direction, and I was so certain they were going to crash in the middle, I screamed and closed my eyes. Aimee squeezed my hand hard, causing me to wince. I opened my eyes just in time to see Kes leaping through a circle of fire, the flames glancing off his helmet. On and on it went, higher, faster, closer. Sweat trickled down my body, pooling under my armpits, leaving me drenched and weak. The engines revved and hummed, and then they all charged together, a flying tower of men, with Kestrel cartwheeling over the top of them. The crowd screamed and clapped and cheered, and Aimee and I stood up, shrieking with them. “Oh my God!” I yelled over the noise. “I nearly had a heart attack!” Aimee laughed and wiped her eyes. “Every time,” she whispered, her voice shaky. “Every time.” I followed her back to the RV where the guys were peeling off their sweat-soaked leathers, standing in their underwear, huge smiles plastered across their faces. Tucker scooped me up in a sweaty hug, his hot skin slick to the touch. “You are amazing!” I said honestly, a relieved laugh breaking out of me. “Stinky, but amazing!” He laughed loudly, his head thrown back, his eyes crinkling with happiness, and then he kissed me, deeply.  
The Traveling Man (Traveling Series, #1)

traveling man

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)

traveling woman

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?
