Excerpt: Perfect Ride by Eva LeFoy and Shiloh Saddler


Here’s an excerpt of Perfect Ride, book 1 in the new Ridden Hard series. I’m loving forward to this one as I love a good cowboy story! 🙂


The Blurb…

Professional bull rider Garrett Anderson lives for the next town, the next trophy and his next ride. When he rolls into Sheridan, Wyoming, the last thing he expected was to meet a cowboy like Cole—a man who corrals his heart and leaves him aching for the kind of love he’s been missing.

A bull tender on the PBR circuit Cole Richards secretly longs for a lover but wasn’t prepared for Garrett’s passion or the longing their one brief tryst kindles. After he is shot and recovering in his hospital bed, Cole can only watch Garrett’s disastrous ride afraid it could be his last. Heartbroken when the battered and bruised bull rider leaves town, Cole knows better than to hope to see him again.

Attacked again and knee-deep in trouble, Cole wants only Garrett at his side. But can his bull rider trade fame and fortune for a lifetime with his one perfect ride?


An excerpt…

“There he is.” Cole put a foot up on the lower slat of the fence and rested his arms on the upper.
 “Take a good look at him while he’s standing still. You won’t see him like this in the ring.”
He eyed the bull with respect. He stood out from the rest of the top ten. Spitfire was big, over sixteen hundred pounds of pure, cream-colored power, topped with foot-and-a-half long horns. The way Spitfire eyed him and began to dig at the ground like he wanted to test the limits of the temporary fence sent a shiver up his spine. He’d have to be careful with this one. He gave Cole a sidelong look and studied the man as he watched his bull.
He liked the sandy-blond stubble dusting the man’s chin and cheek. Liked the way his lips were wide and meaty and showed a bit of wear at the edges, betraying either late-night trysts or the tendency to chew on them as he worried. Garrett voted for the latter. Oh, he could picture Cole bent over taking it from another man easily enough, but the thought made him instantly jealous, so he squelched the notion. With nowhere to set his still full plate, he perched it on the top of a post. “You keep a pretty close watch on him?”
Cole nodded. “He’s a rebellious one. An escape artist, too. A little too smart for his britches.
Someday he’ll end up in the slaughterhouse if he’s not careful.”
Garrett laughed and slapped the dust off his thigh, the motion garnering Cole’s attention. The heat of Cole’s gaze flushed him warm all over. He couldn’t help but engage in a little appreciation of his own. His tongue wetted his lips as he took in the round curve of Cole’s ass, his narrow hips, up his wide, work-chiseled chest, and finally his face. The man’s gaze blazed hotter as Garrett brushed his hand closer to his groin. “That’d be a waste if you ask me.”
Cole swallowed and snapped his attention back up, his eyes shining. “Yes, it would be. A real shame.”


A quick review…

I enjoyed this cowboy story – it was pretty much as I expected from the blurb – cowboys and trouble!

These two guys – one a bull rider and the other tends the bulls – are looking for love and they find it with each other, but not without the usual doubts and lack of understanding of what the other one is thinking.

Throw in some hot sex, drama with gunshot wounds and a mystery to be solved and it’s an enjoyable quick read.

The Blurb…

Brett Colson’s ready to get back into the dating game. Competing in rodeos across the country kept him out of the game, so when he hears about the 1Night Stand service from a friend, he takes a chance.

Bull rider Jace Peterson lost his first love over a year before to another man. Hitting his thirtieth birthday, Jace listens to his friends’ concerns; he needs to end his self-imposed dry spell and enlist the help of Madame Eve.

Brett and Jace expect nothing more than a satisfying one-night ride. But they’re wrong.

So what did I think?

With a title like “One Night Ride” you know what you are in for – one hot night of passion! The title doesn’t lie as Jace and Brett steam up the pages! But you do get a bit more from these two gorgeous cowboys – and speaking of gorgeous cowboys, I do love that cover!

Both men have reached the point in their lives where they feel the need to use a dating service. I loved the little glimpses of the personalities and backgrounds of each man and the natural way they interacted. I loved the sex and I loved the way both men had a feeling they wanted more (not that they’d admit it!)

There was one part in the story that I didn’t quite get or maybe didn’t think was made the most of – Jace’s ex being in the restaurant. It gave Jace a chance to talk about that part of his past but I think I was expecting more from this unexpected encounter.

I also felt the ending was too rushed and felt a little annoyed at Jace for waiting so long to make his move, particularly given his circumstances. I enjoyed the style of this book and really liked the characters so overall wanted it to go on longer. I wanted to see Jace have to work a bit more for his happy ending. I would love to see another book telling more of Brett and Jace’s story now they’ve decided that a one night ride wasn’t nearly enough!
