Review: Long Hard Ride (Rough Riders, #1) by Lorelei James...5 out of 5 rating...(Re~Read for New Cover Re~Release)...


One lucky woman is in for the ride of her life with three sexy cowboys...
During summer break, wannabe wild woman Channing Kinkaid is offered the chance to shed her inhibitions and horse around on the road with a real chaps-and-spurs wearing rodeo cowboy.
From the moment Colby McKay—bull rider, saddle bronc buster and calf roper—sets his lust-filled eyes on the sweet and fiery Channing, he knows she’s up to the challenge of being his personal buckle bunny. But he also demands that his rodeo traveling partners, Trevor and Edgard are allowed to join in their no-holds-barred sexcapades.
Although Channing secretly longed to be the sole focus of more than one man’s passions, all is not as it seems with the sexy trio. Colby’s demand for her complete submission behind closed doors tests her willful nature, and his sweet-talking ways burrow into her heart.
Will Colby have to break out the bullropes and piggin’ string to convince this headstrong filly that the road to true love doesn’t have to be as elusive as that championship belt buckle?
Warning: This story has tons of explicit sex, graphic language that’d make your mama blush, light bondage, ménage a trois, and—yee-haw!—hot nekkid cowboy man-love.
This is a re~read for me for the Long Hard Ride new cover release.  I liked the original cover but this one works just a well for me!! Very Nice!! 

I'm a HUGE fan of this series and of Lorelei James. She is one of my favorite authors and this series is definitely why. No one writes more sexier cowboys than Lorelei. ;)

I fell in love with not only Channing and Colby but the entire McKay ~ West clan. I definitely wanted more of this family, especially Cord.  

Channing was a great mixture of sweet and feisty. She definitely had to have a bit of wild in her to keep up with Colby and his demanding and kinky ways! I loved her character so much. She was so much fun. Colby was a piece of work. His character was charming, sexy, demanding, stubborn, sweet and smokin' hot but he could also be arrogant and a bit of an ass hat. He was a lot of fun to read also. I really liked them as a couple and wanted Colby to realize that Channing was perfect for him before it was too late. Their road to their HEA wasn't easy but it was definitely fun to read. Loved the ending~So good!!

Wow...the sex practically fried up my Kindle. I almost had to put it in the freezer to cool it off. That is another thing that Lorelei excels at, hotter than hell sex scenes!! She gave us a little bit of everything in this book and then gave us some more and even added in some sizzilin' man love. 

I really liked the friendship that Colby had with Trevor and Edgar and how easily Channing fit in with them. I also liked the friendship that developed between Channing and Gemma. 

Such a great story and the start to what is an excellent series. 

***I have my favorite couples/stories in this series ~ Colt & India, Cam & Domini,  Kade & Skylar,  but my absolute favorite is Cord & AJ. I just loved everything about their story, Cowgirl Up And Ride. Cowboy Take Me Away, which is the last book in the series and the story of Carolyn & Carson,  is another particular favorite of mine and might actually be my favorite of the series~it was that good!***
