...Ridin' the edge of lust is fun—until someone falls in love.
Goody-two boots AJ Foster has waited her entire life for her dream cowboy Cord McKay to see her as more than the neighbor girl in pigtails. Now that she’s old enough to stake her claim on him, she’s pulling out all the sexual stops and riding hell-bent for leather—straight for his libido.
Divorced rancher Cord has sworn off all women…until innocent AJ suggests he teach her how to ride bareback—and he realizes she doesn’t mean horses or bulls. Between his responsibilities running his massive ranch, missing his young son and dealing with the sexual shenanigans of his brother and cousins, Cord is more than willing to take AJ up on her offer. On a trial basis.
The fun and games tie them both up in knots. AJ isn’t willing to settle for less than the whole shootin' match with her western knight. But for Cord, even though the sexy cowgirl sets his blood ablaze, he’s determined to resist her efforts to lasso his battered heart. Sweet, determined AJ has the power to heal—or heel—the gruff cowboy…unless Cord’s pride keeps him from admitting their relationship is more than a simple roll in the hay.
Warning: This book contains: raunchy sex scenes that’ll work you into a lather faster than a winded horse, graphic language, resourceful use of baling twine, ménage a trois, ménage a quatage, and yippee! hot nekkid lovin'.
Cowgirl Up & Ride, Book 3 in Lorelei James Rough Riders series, delivers the story of Cord McKay and Amy Jo Foster (AJ). AJ has been in love with Cord most of her life. Cord has always seen 22 year old AJ as his sister's little friend. Cord, in his 30's, is divorced with custody of his young son and a family ranch to run. He is a sexy, domineering, alpha male leaning heavily to the Dom side with a wall around his heart that he has no intention of ever letting a woman penetrate again. One night, at a local bar, Cord watches as a very sexy, grown up AJ struts her stuff in a mini skirt, flirting and dancing with every cowboy in the joint - every cowboy but him. Cord finally finds he can't stand to watch anymore and has to put his hands on AJ. He is surprised when AJ propositions him and shocked speechless to learn what a gift she is offering him. In fact, she is begging him to take her and teach her about sex, no strings attached. What else can Cord do but agree with stipulations...No dating - just no holds barred sex every night, no one can know about them, and it's over when Cord's son returns home and AJ returns to school to finish her last semester. Cord is really surprised when AJ agrees to his terms. Little does he know, she has an ulterior motive. Thus begins an affair that sets the sheets and both their hearts ablaze. AJ is determined to win Cord's love and heart permanently, while Cord fights his growing feelings and love for AJ every step of the way. This is a great book about desire, guilt, responsibilities, sex, and love that also gives some insight and backstory into both character's families. Cord and AJ have demons of their own to battle. I loved this book. Cord and AJ are two of my favorite characters in the Rough Rider's series.
