Ride Wild by Laura Kaye is book Three in the "Raven Riders" series. This is the story of Sam “Slider” Evans and Cora Campbell. This is the first book I have read in this series, so for me this was a standalone book. Cora had a non caring father we learn along with a best friend who had the opposite type of father. Haven's father was all controlling and Cora had to help her friend get away. When the Raven Riders ended up saving them from kidnappers Cora decided to stay with the gang until she figured out what to do next. This leads her to help Sam who lost his wife about two years ago take care of his boys, Ben and Sam by baby sitting them. Ben and Sam are crazy about Cora who has brought life back to their house. By Sam is fighting the attraction to her and tries to just think of her as the 'babysitter'. But its getting harder and harder to do so. Cora knows that the harsh man that he shows her isn't who he really is just by watching him interact with his kids. When Sam has to step up to protect Cora fighting their feelings are close to impossible.
Loved watching Cora and Sam come together!
Ride by Cat Johnson is a great western romance. Ms Johnson has given us another well-written book. The characters are fun and lovable. Leesa and Chase’s story is loaded with drama, suspense, sizzle and humor. I enjoyed reading Ride and look forward to my next book by Cat Johnson. Ride is book 3 in the Studs In Spurs Series but can be read as a standalone. This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.
I voluntarily read a free copy of this book that I received from Instafreebie.
Heading back home to spend the summer before going to law school, Marianne begins to question her life goals and dreams. She’s always feared being stuck in small-town Sackett, Georgia, but now the idea has a little more appeal, as long as she can maintain some distance between herself and her large family.
Carl and Marianne were high school sweethearts, but when Marianne thought Carl might propose before Marianne headed off to college, she panicked and left him. After four years, the sparks are still there, but can they move forward instead of looking back?
Save a Truck, Ride a Redneck is a short novella that kicks off the new Southern Eclectic series by Molly Harper. While not full of Ms. Harper’s usual snark and wit, the story is sweet and charming. However, I’m a bit curious as to its place in the series. I say this because there is a HUGE spoiler in the beginning of the book: a family tree which shows Marianne and Carl married with kids, as well as the death a major character who is still alive in this story. I really wish the family tree had been left out of the novella, and added once the series had progressed to match what the graphic displays.
Other than that little issue, Carl and Marianne share a sweet romance. The novella sets the stage for the upcoming series by developing the basic framework of the world. Save a Truck, Ride a Redneck was entertaining and engrossing enough that it got me interested and invested in the characters, and I want to know more about the McCready family.
My Rating: B/B- Liked It, but I had a small issue
