Long Hard Ride {Review}

Long Hard Ride

ebook, 267 pages
Published April 1st 2007 by Samhain Publishing, Ltd. (first published 2007)

Channing Kinkaid itches for a wild western adventure with an untamed man. Enter Colby McKaybull rider, saddle bronc buster and calf roper. He knows hes found a woman whos up to the challenge of cutting loose. Intrigued by Channings bold proposition to "horse around" on the road, Colby proposes sexual escapades not only in his bed, but in those of his two rodeo traveling partners. Can Channing give up total control? Especially when not all is as it seems with the sexy trio?

First Line(s): On a drunken dare after too many kamikazes, Channing Kinkaid found herself standing on a shelllacked bartop while a bartender named Moose sprayed her chest with ice-cold beer.

My Review: Long Hard Ride is Channing and Colby’s story. Colby is a rodeo star, on the road competing. He’s got a thing for Channing who is traveling with another competitor. When she finds out her ‘travel mate’ is married Colby offers the new daring Channing the chance of a lifetime. Hit the road with him and his two travel buddy's, live the rodeo life for a few weeks and keep their bed warm…all three of them. I love erotic romance ( guilty pleasure of mine) but with that said there has to be a good solid emotional relationship in order for me to enjoy the storyline. Lorelei James not only delivers an intense emotional relationship with Channing and Colby, she also gives a good introduction into a secondary relationship as well. (m/m alert, so if this is not you cup of tea... stop reading now). The relationships are intense as well as sexy as can be! I have been eye balling this series for some time now and when Long Hard Ride came up as free on Kindle ( yes I said FREE) I knew it was time to get cracking on this series. Upon finishing this book I got the second in the series the same night ( stay tuned for that review).
Two books into the Rough Rider's series and I can honestly say it has become one of my favorites!

My Rating: 4 stars

Giddy up now, git’cher cowboy on, it's free if you have a kindle ( I read mine on my iphone)

Until next time...
Happy Reading!

Love the review! I also downloaded it as a free read from Amazon. I am much like you in the respect that, while I love Erotica, it MUST have a good storyline to go with it. I'm glad to know this one does. I look forward to starting it ♥
