This book came from the library, and I will never give you less than an honest review, no matter its source. I do provide informational and purchase links to make it more convenient for you to access the book. I also receive a percentage of the sale if you use one of my links to buy it. And that's not enough money to be less than truthful *grin*.

The Stories

Moira Keith‘s “Buckling Down” is cute. Levi McKenna intends to leave the rodeo world on a high note and that means Las Vegas. He doesn’t count on running into his best friend’s sister, Sydney Hart. He’s loved her forever but had promised Dusty he wouldn’t date her. Then. It’s a tale of honor and maturity. Up against a big brother’s protective nature. More importantly, it’s about believing in yourself and going for it. In every sense.

Lorelei James‘ “Strong, Silent Type” is definitely a good description of Quinn McKay. Seems that bad boy has been repressing his inner McKay! This is a sweet story about a long-time married couple who have been taking each other for granted and finally realize the benefits of open, honest communication.

Niki Green‘s “The Real Deal” is a fun look behind the scenes at a “gentlemen’s club”. That’s the best part of the story. Willa Tate ran off and left Chase Klein at the altar so to speak and now his younger brothers have found her. In the least likely place.

Okay, this was my least favorite of the three. Green spent forever on the build-up and by the time we finally learn just why Willa felt it necessary to run out on Chase, I’m really expecting some big thang. And it is just too lame. Nor does Green explain just why Willa, who is so desperate to be nowhere near the Kleins is working as a stripper so near the Klein ranch. She does do some nice descriptions and interesting characters.

The Cover and Title

The cover breaks the pattern of carved leather. Instead, a nicely delineated male torso rises up from a conjunction of rope and leather against a blurry background of a sunlit background of trees. I liked the raised wood title…even if it is disintegrating.

The title is accurate enough for each couple does engage in a Wild Ride.
