On the flap: For Lacey Callihan, things couldn’t get much worse. She’s working a dead-end job, living with a dead-end boyfriend and stuck in a dead-end town. When Lacey’s boyfriend steals her life savings and hits her for questioning him, it’s the last straw. She skips town in her rust-heap of a car – which she can only pray will get her as far as Texas. And it does. Spluttering to a final stop just as she crosses the border. But when two ultra-hot cowboys pull up in their convertible red Mustang and offer her a ride, Lacey has a feeling her luck is about to change …
Lacey Callihan has had a tough go in life. She doesn’t have any parents or support system. Even with an awful job at a local hole-in-the-wall bar where it’s difficult to live on tips, she’s managed to put some money back to enable her to move away from her loser boyfriend. She wakes up on her 21st birthday and decides to use some of her savings to treat herself to a present, since no one else will, only to find he boyfriend has taken most of it. Talk about a crappy birthday.
With the last straw broken, she packs a bag and leaves to start a new life in Austin. Unfortunately, the car doesn’t cooperate when it breaks down just over the Texas border. With very little money and no working vehicle, she takes matters into her own hand when sticks out her thumb and is ready to hitchhike. Her luck changes when a mustang filled with two studs pulls over.
Nate and Riley Walker come complete with cowboy hats and a strong Texas drawl. The gorgeous cousins are ready to show Lacey a good time but still treat her well. After having a few drinks, she’s is ready to take what the attractive men are offering—at the same time.
Wild Ride is short and sizzling read that gets straight to the point. It’s good to see a down on her luck girl get a bit of a fairytale with a kinky ménage twist. Although it has an exceedingly compressed timeline, I think it makes for a great evening read…something to sexy with not one, but two alpha males. Done and done.
