Summary

There are times in your life when you know everything has changed, and no matter what you do, you can never go back to who you were before that moment. For me, that moment happened when a former Navy SEAL nicknamed "Cowboy" escorted me to the dance floor at my sister’s wedding, then walked away once the song was over. See, I had a big problem. I was 17. He was 32. And I loved him. But I wouldn’t always be 17, and one day, Jesse Compton would love me. I’d make sure of it.

Prequel to Delta Security

Tinsley was my first audiobook by DL Lane and what a sweet treat it was. Tinsley and Jesse’s love story promises to be an action and romance packed one. In this short story We are also introduced to the other Delta Security members giving us a sneak pick to their personalities.
Can’t wait for Cowboy

Very well written

This prequel was so informative. I loved how you got to know so many characters and a slight look into their stories. I really need the whole series now!!! A brilliant performance from both Andy and Eric.

Great Prequel!

This is a prequel to Delta Security series, a spin-off series from D.L. Lane’s Cedar Point series. This is a great introduction to this forbidden romance. I loved Jesse (Cowboy) and Tinsley's short prequel. Tinsley is beautiful, young, and determined. Cowboy is her brother-in-law's best friend. Jesse (Cowboy), a former Navy Seal, is enigmatic, and very protective. The supporting characters are interesting. Andy Garcia-Ruse and Eric Bryan Moore did a great job with the narration. Looking forward to listening to Cowboy, the next book in the series, to know what happens next.

Age is just a number

This book was so good. Watching cowboy (Jesse) go through his inner struggles about leaving Tinsley alone and watching over her broke my heart. Seeing how broken he was and listening to his past made me want him to give in so bad and accept Tin’s love. I can’t wait for the next to book to come out so I can see how he handles the killer of his loved one and what happens next for him a land tin. The narrators read with so much emotion I felt the love and the rawness. D.L.Lane knows how to write and keep you hooked and wanted more. Hope the wait isn’t too long for the next lol

Great taste of what is to come!

There is nothing better than a romance like this one. The beginnings of a relationship, are always hopeful, and Tinsley is holding her heart on her sleeve for Jesse Compton. Her brother-in-law's best friend, Cowboy as he is known is 15 years her senior and has no intention of acting on this teenager's crush. But there is something about her that keeps drawing him back to her. A few stolen kisses and the ability to watch over her has to be enough. But as the years go by, this is becoming increasingly difficult. A few twists and turns keep them crossing paths, but will they ever be together? I am loving this prequel. It's just a tease, a little taste that has me craving the first book in this series. It promises suspense and forbidden love, and I cannot wait to hear DL Lane's message in their story! Bring it on!

Andy Garcia-Ruse is Tinsley and she is fantastic! New to me, I was excited to hear a new adult voice that is realistic in it's emotional pull , drawing me in and keeping engaged. She easily transitions between characters with distinguishing voices and the performance is amazing. Epilogue by one of my favorites, Eric Bryan Moore gives us a taste of Cowboy's point of view with all the feels. It's giving me something to look forward to and I am excited!

Phenomenal

This is the prequel to a new series that crosses over from D.L.'s Cedar Point series. I'm a fan of this author, and love her writing style. She hooks you and never lets you go until the end. And she will take you on a rollercoaster of emotions along the way.

This story has all the longing and heartache of young love with the added twist of the heroine, Tinsley, falling for an older man. He's her brother-in-law's best friend and former Navy Seal, Jesse. The push and pull between the two and their fight for her to make him love her while he already secretly does but fights not to, draws you in. Your heart will ach for her and cheer her on. And the intrigue to know more about Jesse, or Cowboy as his friends call him, made me want to hear his book now. But, I must wait for that. Overall, this was the perfect start to a new series I am eager to dive into.

Both narrators did a fantastic job, and made all the feels happen. Andy Garcia-Ruse is a new narrator for me and I enjoyed her voice. Eric Bryan Moore is a favorite of mine and never disappoints. I highly recommend this audiobook and can't wait to hear how things turn out for Tinsley and Jesse, positive it will be one heck of a good read/listen.
