Long Hard Ride

The book was better than I thought it would be.The story between colby and channing was unbeleivably great. Looking forward to the next story of gemma and cash. What I want to know is what is going to happen with trevor and edgard. I think that would be interesting.

A HOT summer read!

I purchased this book largely on the overall strength of the current reviews. I wasn't disappointed! I thought Channing perhaps fell into Colby and Co.'s bed a tad too easily (e.g. the initial "test")but didn't feel it strained anything but the very outside edge of believability. Please note there is some m/m action (in addition to m/f/m)but although it's not generally my thing, I thought it was well written and hot. All-in-all, a pleasing and erotic summer-read!

This ain't your mother's romance novel

I fell away from reading romance novels after marriage and kids took front and center. Recently I needed to remember what romance was about again and found Lorelei James Rough Rider series ("Long Hard Ride" and "Rode, Hard, Put Up Wet" currently available - "Cowgirl Up and Ride" due next week!) and discovered a world of difference in modern romance novels. For those of us who are past the vestile virgin age, these are such a refreshing change with mature topics and frank sex scenes. But beyond the racier storylines, Lorelei James weaves a heart-touching story of love and romance with real men and women we can relate to. This series centers on the McKay family and friends. In Long Hard Ride, we are taken for a tour of the rodeo circuit with drop dead sexy Colby McKay, his two equally hot friends, and how Channing Kinkaid becomes the woman Colby McKay can't just "love and leave." Honestly these characters and story lines are so well written you will feel that twinge of sorrow when you finish the book because it feels like saying goodbye to friends. I'm so excited the series will continue and I'll once again be visitng the McKay Ranch. Don't just buy this book - buy the whole series now because you will want more - trust me!

Cowboy Lovin'

I enjoyed this book immensely! I especially loved Cody, a sexy and hard-lovin' cowboy. The love scenes are done quite well, but it's Cody's emotion and realization he doesn't want anyone else to touch Channing that brought it home for me. Check out my review at The Good, The Bad and The Unread:

4.5 Blue Ribbons from Romance Junkies!

Channing has struggled her entire life to be the person her mother and father desire. Fun loving and mischievous, she is stifled in the society where her parents are so comfortable. Always on the outside looking in, Channing just wants one summer of freedom; freedom to be what she wants, when she wants, especially when those wants include a sexy cowboy who promises to fulfill all of her fantasies. Add in his two sinfully erotic roommates and Channing's dreams just might be fulfilled. Colby McKay has been watching and waiting for Channing Kinkaid to set her sights on him. Desiring her like none before, he sits back and allows her to come to him. And she does. With a proposition as bold as the wind, Channing promises to fulfill all of his needs, even those that include sharing her with his fellow rodeo roommates. Colby doesn't count on coming to yearn for Channing to be his alone. What happens when the rodeo season ends? LONG HARD RIDE hogtied me and would not let me go until I read every bit of this delightfully sexy tale. I am fascinated by the rodeo circuit and I really liked how Ms. James took the reader into the workings and politics of how rodeos are run and managed. I found myself immersed and anxious when reading scenes of bull riding and calf roping. Channing's characterization could be any young woman yearning for a bit of fun before starting a new life and job. She is brassy and sassy, and I adored her independence. Colby, in turn, made me melt when he smiled. And when he smiled at Channing I knew his frisky, no holds barred kind of loving was headed her way. Lorelei James has written a bold novel with LONG HARD RIDE. Sinfully erotic, poignant at times, and basically just plain wonderful, LONG HARD RIDE is simply delightful. Hang on to your cowboy hats because this book is scorching hot!
