"Amanda Sloane’s passion has been solely focused on becoming a well-respected, NYC art appraiser. With that appetite sated, she can no longer ignore her body’s carnal desires.
Tasked with authenticating an uncataloged Randell painting that could be worth millions, she meets a trio of Texas ranch hands who take her on an erotic ride imagined only in her deepest fantasy. Between ranch owners, Jake and Justin Morgan, and their ranch foreman, Luke, the cowboys ignite in Amanda a raging fire of uninhibited sexuality.
For years, the Morgan brothers have fought off their greedy cousin's attempts to take their ranch, including poison and sabotage. Now, Jake is counting on the elegant and sophisticated art appraiser to authenticate his grandaddy's painting to stave off foreclosure on the family ranch. Awakening the big city vixen’s sexual hunger has his body ablaze with need and his heart yearning for love.
Can Amanda give up the intoxicating pleasure of her sexual awakening? Or is Jake's love unconditional enough to encourage her to continue her erotic odyssey?" ~ From Goodreads
The story in One Hard Ride was a nice mix of saving the brothers from ruin designed by their cousin and whole lot of steaming hot sex. That's saying it simply. M.M. Bordeaux writes very well, even if there hadn't been sex I would have still been very entertained! But there was and boy was there plenty of it! At points I though maybe bit too much - but seriously can you ever have too much of a good thing? ;)
Bordeaux had a way with characters! Amanda could have a been just a sexual object with the amount of getting busy as this novel had, but she was genuinely likable and fun and did have that adventurous nature that and erotic romance heroine needs to possess. Jake was all kinds of yummy darkness and light wrapped up together and I loved seeing him begin falling for Amanda. Justin was fun, lots of it outside and inside the bedroom and matched with Luke the pair was quite the irresistible couple of cowboys to any girl. The characters had nice depth and three dimensional edge to make them well believable.
The romance really was between Amanda and Jake, even though they both fought the deeper feeling and tried their damn hardest to keep things as casual as possible. Of course that never works out quite like people plan, now does it? I also liked the threat that crazy cousin kept bringing to the romance too, sure deepened the emotions for sure.
All in all very very good book, very much worth a read for lover of erotic romance and cowboys!
( +18 ONLY )
“Does that turn you on Miss Sloane? Watching Julie make love to two men at once?”
She jerked around to find Jake standing not more than two feet away. Barefoot and shirtless, he stood wearing only a pair of jeans. The starlight gave his body a luminous glow, defining his ripped pecs and abs.
“Oh God,” she whispered, staring up at him in shock, unable to move.
“Does it turn you on?” He repeated, obviously aware of her arousal.
A loud moan from the bedroom caused Amanda to blink. He glanced past her shoulder and smiled. “It’s amazing how much pleasure two men can give a woman.” He reached out and put one hand on the back of her neck, pulling her close.
She raised her hands, pressing her palms against the smooth muscles of his chest, trying to push away. Slowly, deliberately, he leaned down and kissed her, his hand behind her neck keeping her lips turned up toward his. With his free hand, he held the small of her back, pulling her closer. Then his hand slid up to caress her breasts, his fingers pinching and twisting her nipples, sending currents of electricity straight to her pussy. For a long moment, he continued the kiss, his tongue probing deep, searching. His kiss ignited a desperate need and she kissed him back, her limp arms finding life, lifting to encircle his shoulders and grasping urgently at his neck.
