Ride: Competing for the Cup - Bobbi Jg Weiss

It is time to work even harder, the cup is coming and every house wants it!

The second book, and I quite enjoyed it. Sure, I had quite a few issues with several things that happened in this book. From Lady Covington to Anya to Will. But there were also a lot of good things and plus I just flew through this book.

The book starts off pretty exciting and I was quite worried for Rudy. You know the prank the guys pulled with the Guys? Well, they hid them all in the stable, however the stable couldn't hold it and thus things went to hell. Yup. Horses scared, people hurt. The consequences will definitely come to the guys who did it. Though I have to say I had expected more dire consequences, something like suspension. And yes, the punishment that the boys and Will, especially Will, got were pretty dire, it still felt small compared to the event that happened. 

Kit is such a spirited girl, and I really like her and how she never gives up. Even with TK now in total scaredy mode due to what happened at the beginning, she keeps going and is helped out by her friends and a mysterious (well, I knew right away who it was) note writer. She tries her best to figure out TK and his fears. And she even tries her hardest during training, even if it is with Elaine, the mean girl of the school. I also loved her alternative tea time, with bbq, burgers, and more. I am happy that this girl at least tried, even if the response wasn't so good. 
I loved seeing her together with her dad, and I could also understand her sadness/confusion when she saw him have dinner with Sally.

I am also delighted that we finally saw something of a class in this one! That is what I missed in the previous book. This takes place in a boarding school, yet we generally see the kids outside of classes, with the horses, at breakfast/dinner/lunch/tea/etc.. Yes, I don't need full classes explained, but I would like to see glimpses of them so that the place feels more like a school and less like a fun place with horses. 

I still love that the book features such a big cast and that everyone gets to talk. We see Nav, Will, Josh, Anya, Elaine (urggghhhh), Kit, and also Rudy.

I definitely loved how Rudy tried to be there for his daughter, how he even tried talking to Lady Covington, how the tried to protect her.

Will? A bit hit and miss for me. He was quite whiny and grumbly, and I get that he has to do all sorts of things in the barn, but maybe he should also focus on schoolwork? Since that is also important? And I also don't get his jealousy with Nav and Kit. It is not as if Kit has an interest in Nav. :P

Lady Covington? Well, let's say I already hated the woman and her idiocy, but in this one? I just wanted to get rid of the woman. She was terrible, heartless, and a bitch. I am sorry, but it is the truth. I get that she is the headmistress and she has to be a bit strict, but she is completely heartless. Ice cold queen. :| Frankly, I don't get if we get a sobbing back story in the next one, I will never like this woman. 

Anya? Well, I normally love that girl, she is one of my favourites, but the crap she pulled in this one? Her total lack of common sense or knowledge on how to communicate? It just frustrated me to no end. Kit doesn't care that you may be a princess, you should know this by now, and you should also understand that OF COURSE she is hurt. Friends tell each other stuff, and she also gave away her whole past to you in the beginning. She trusted you, and instead of trusting her, you lied. 
And then when Elaine starts to like you for the princess stuff, you just don't get it in your head she is doing this for certain reasons. Dear Lord, I would think that anyone would find it suspicious if the meanest girl in the entire school acts all cuddly all the sudden.

Also how the adults reacted to their seating plan? Dear heavens. *snorts* Like they were 10 year old again. :P

The competition? Well, I knew from the moment that horse shoe disappeared what would happen. Duh, I have seen it happen in other books as well. And we could also see what happens when you push a girl and a horse to a competition when they are not ready. :| The rest of the competition was quite interesting.

The ending? Lord in all heavens, I already HATED Lady Covington but the crap she pulled now? Sorry, but lady you have gone too far. I totally agree with the dad, how could she do that. And why is she so pissed at Kit for not being able to do it. Hello, everyone told you they weren't ready. They weren't going to be ready for some time. You can't force someone to just ride a horse. Especially when that horse is TK. And you can't just go all (after the competition); "It was dangerous." Um, no shit, but hello, you were the one enforcing that rigid schedule. So yeah, Lady C. can just drown in a giant puddle of tea. :|

All in all, I am very much curious about the next book and how it will continue. Just a few months to go, I can wait, right? 
And while this book had some issues, I still would recommend it as it was still a fun read! You will definitely not be bored.

Review: Ride Wild (Raven Riders #3) by Laura Kaye
Ride Wild: A Raven Riders Novel - Laura Kaye

Contemporary Romance

Brotherhood. Club. Family.
They live and ride by their own rules.
These are the Raven Riders...

 

Wild with grief over the death of his wife, Sam “Slider” Evans merely lives for his two sons. Nothing holds his interest anymore—not even riding his bike or his membership in the Raven Riders Motorcycle Club. But that all changes when he hires a new babysitter.

 

Recently freed from a bad situation by the Ravens, Cora Campbell is determined to bury the past. When Slider offers her a nanny position, she accepts, needing the security and time to figure out what she wants from life. Cora adores his sweet boys, but never expected the red-hot attraction to their brooding, sexy father. If only he would notice her...

 

Slider does see the beautiful, fun-loving woman he invited into his home. She makes him feel too much, and he both hates it and yearns for it. But when Cora witnesses something she shouldn’t have, the new lives they’ve only just discovered are threatened. Now Slider must claim—and protect—what’s his before it’s too late.

Emotional, Sweet, Raunchy, with a bit of Suspense.

 

The Raven Riders series has fast; become a favorite with me. I like how the Raven Riders MC band together to help those in need, but just not those outside the brotherhood, but those inside as well. It’s an emotional heartfelt series.

 

Ride Wild gives us a man whose life was torn apart by his wife’s death and he’s barley keeping it together for his boys and a young women who is determined to find happiness in her life. These two have secrets that have affect them deeply, but maybe they can find what they need in each other.

 

I’ve waited not so patiently since book one, Ride Hard, for Cora’s story and also Slider. We’ve gained glimpse of Sam “Slider” Evans throughout the books. So when I heard that Cora and Slider where finally getting a story. I couldn’t have been more ecstatic. Ms. Kaye did not disappoint. I loved Ride Wild.

 

These two people where broken, afraid to need anyone, and trust so their relationship did have some mistakes along the way; especially early on when both don’t know the others past and secrets. One thing that was undeniable was their love for the boys, Sam and Ben. Even with Sider’s issues you could tell that he truly loved his boys. Cora was determined to bring joy into their lives and some joy back into Slider’s life as well. I loved these two together and felt they complemented each other well.

 

Great characters and a sweet and sensual love story.

 

Rated: 4 Stars

not for me
Ride All Night - Michele de Winton

Beth’s montra was she was a strong, confident woman with real talent and a future in Hollywood. She worked at a biker bar called Wilde while she was waiting for one of the many auditions she had went  to would pay off. Beth’s idol was Mae West.  Grim’s voice did things to Beth. Beth decided she was going to tell Grim tonight why they should be together. Grim wasn’t a biker but portrayed one and he was coming to Wilde’s to do research. Grim was known to be a playboy in Hollywood. Beth thought Grim could help her get her break in Hollywood. Grim had left the bar and Beth decided to seduce him and went to his room. Beth’s polio vaccine had failed and she had gotten the disease as a baby. It had took multiple  operations over the years and a bunch of titanium hardware and a lot of physical therapy to get her walking on her own. Beth goes to the room Grim is suppose to be at and ends up in bed with Grim brother Rusty. Rusty doesn’t like the idea of Beth being with Grim but strings Beth along saying he would set Beth up with Grim. Rusty’s plan is to Beth pretend to be his office manager  to increase the ratings on the reality show about his garage. Rusty is a member of the Raising Hellfire MC.

I didn’t really like this book. I didn’t like how Beth seemed to care so much for her breasts. I didn’t connect with Beth as a character and didn’t really like her. I didn’t like how she hoped Grim would help her get a break in Hollywood. There really wasn’t a lot of positive in this book for me.

Remy and Frankie are a combustible bundle. From flirty to sexy and dangerous, Melanie Jayne delivers the goods. Let it Ride is one surprise after another.
