“Look no further than James’s tale for the thrill of the rodeo and hot cowboys. Authentic rodeo scenes create an exciting setting and bedroom encounters are spectacularly fiery…”
—RT Book Reviews Magazine
“This is a book full of good old boy charm from marble-sculpted cowboys that would make any woman whimper if one just winked at her. It’s full of friendship, kinship, and family, all from sources you’d never expect. It’s full of fun and humor, roarin’ good times at the rodeo, and it’s definitely full of lip-smackin’, toe curlin’, sweaty, everything-goes sex.”
—The Good, The Bad, The Unread
“Raunchy escapades were provided with a backdrop of a wildly emotional love story.”
—Joyfully Reviewed, Recommended Read
“Highly erotic love scenes as well as a poignant, pulse-pounding, intricately woven storyline.”
—Two Lips Reviews, Recommended Read!
“This not a story of sex only for the sake of sex, hearts do become involved… Colby and Channing have an electrifying chemistry…emotionally stirring… A fast paced story filled with wild sex and plenty of passion…”
—The Romance Studio
“Sinfully erotic, poignant at times, and basically just plain wonderful, LONG HARD RIDE is simply delightful. Hang on to your cowboy hats because this book is scorching hot!”
“The story was hedonistic…the clever cast of characters kept the pages moving…I cannot wait to read it again.”
—Just Erotic Romance Reviews

In other words, I did not know what I was getting into and I had very few preconceived notions.
This book is erotic. There’s lots of sex. For me, this is a good thing, but I wasn’t expecting it. I was expecting it to be more on the romance novel of the spectrum. But it’s squarely in the erotica section.
As in the threesome and foursome erotica section.
So, once I realized what I was reading (and I’m no prude), I thought that the book was great. I was just surprised because it wasn’t quite what I was expecting. But it’s well-written, I liked the characters and the story, and the brawny, hot, cowboys and wise women.
A part that made me laugh was the description of their trip to a grocery store:
“She loaded up on fresh fruit, a few veggies. Whole-grain cereal and bread. Lunch meat. Diet soda. And canned soup.
Colby’s contribution to the cart was an extra large box of condoms, four cans of Skoal and a case of Bud Light.”
That pretty much explains their characters.
This book belongs in the pleasure section of the library, perhaps the guilty pleasure section, although I’m not sure I believe that pleasures need to be guilty. I want to read more by this author.
There were some really hot scenes with all of them together. Then there are some SUPER hot scenes with just Channing and Colby. Of course the more time they spend together, the closer they get. Channing finds out some interesting things about the other guys they are traveling with and makes friends with the other wives and girlfriends. They relationship with Channing and Colby develops into something neither of them thought they were ready for.
This story has a great HEA ending! Colby even has a very cheesy romantic line at the ends that always make me smile like a goober and cry at the same time.
Completely different love story than I was use to at the time, but it was great. Loved Channing, her strength and openness to explore herself and her sexuality. And Colby!! Holy Hell talk about cowboy hotness!! Did I mentioned I am now hooked on cowboy books, especially rodeo cowboys.... especially not knowing anything about Rodeos!! Colby is one hell of an introduction into the McKay Family, him and this book came busting out with sexual hotness right out the gate, kind of like bull riding!! And boy what an intro too!!! Be prepared for a lot of hot sexy scenes.... variety is the spice of life and this book has the spice!!
Even with all of that spicy hotness going on, there is a great underlying love story happening too, which had me hooked and why I am now a huge Lorelei James fan of her writing!!
Colby McKay is just a good time guy, who isn't really looking to settle down quite yet. That is until he meets Channing and things are way different with her. He doesn't want the usual with her, she makes him feel things he never really has. They both want each other so it should be easy right? HA, you thought wrong. Some things get in their way, so it's interesting to see how it all works out in the end.
Ok I read this on recommendation from a friend because it really is not my usual genre per say. I'm not really a cowboy girl, so while I wasn't really into the whole rodeo cowboy/cowgirl/ranchers plot, I can say that as an erotica this is super hot and steamy.
Extremely well written and I think the flow is nice. If you're looking for a story with a lot of storyline and plot, then this book probably isn't it since the majority of it is naughty bits. There is no cheating, but there are multiple partner situations in this book. Don't get me wrong there is some story as well, and even a side story that I believe turns into it's own angsty book, but it isn't the majority of the plot here.
If you're looking for a super naughty, erotic, cowboy rodeo book... you've found it.
