Chasin Eight by Lorelei James { Review }

Chasin' Eight

(Rough Riders #11)
by Lorelei James

Published June 28th 2011 by Samhain Publishing

She wants it…he’s got it…and the chase is on…

Bull rider Chase McKay has finally landed in a pile too big to charm his way out of. Caught with his pants down, he finds himself bucked right off the PBR tour until he can get his act together.

Hollywood actress Ava Cooper became the tabloids’ favorite target when her longtime boyfriend was outed as gay. She needs a place to lay low and a chance to prove to herself that she can satisfy a red-blooded man between the sheets. The sexy, rugged cowboy she finds holed up in her Wyoming hideaway seems like the answer to her every fantasy.

But Chase has sworn off women. Forever. Or at least a month. Whichever comes first.

When they take to the road to get Chase more hands-on bull riding experience, they have every intention of keeping their hands off each other. But the two headstrong stars quickly end up riding a hot and heady rodeo circuit all their own—until the press gets wind of their affair. When the dust clears and the lights of the paparazzi fade, are they ready to give up chasing the dream for a chance of finding forever?

Warning: Strap in, another hot McKay is about to bust out of the gate and this bull rider knows a thing or two about riding hard…

First Line: There was nothing like porn

Favorite Line(s): “Let me grab my toothbrush and toothpaste and I'll go."
"Get your eyes off my junk and you'll see that I have your toothbrush and toothpaste in my hand."
Oh shit. She raised her gaze only high enough to see, yes indeed, Chase was holding her oral hygiene supplies.

My Review: Opps I did it again, read another one of Lorelei James novels to fast and was left wishing I could drawl out the story a bit longer. I need to learn to pace myself and take it much slower when it comes to the Rough Rider series but I just can't control myself!

Both Chase and Ava are going through their own scandals in their very different worlds. After Chase's falls in ratings at the rodeo and succeeds in pissing off a top sponser he is suspended and heads home to stay in his cousins trailer to regroup and decide how to get back on top. Ava is running away from her own problems, her ex is outed for being gay and she can't escape the crowds of paparazzi following her everywhere. So Ava decides to go stay at her good friends trailer to go into hiding for a bit.... crash! I love that scene when Chase and Ava first meet in the McKay secret love nest "trailer".

I love Chase and Ava's banter and laughter as they get to know each other, it seemed unforced and real. This should go without saying but I will say it anyway... of course the sex scenes are smoking hott and will leave you a little bothered.

I can't think of a single person who writes better sex scenes than Lorelei James!

I look forward to reading the next installment in the Rough Rider's Series!

My Rating:

Until next time...Happy Reading!
