He's looking for love. She's looking for trouble...

As a successful doctor and weekend cowboy, Chase Cooper enjoys a full life with plenty of female company. But lately, something hasn't felt right. He's been distracted. Antsy. Damn it, he's been lonely. With an eye on settling down with a nice girl, Coop invites his high school best friend down to his ranch to see if maybe she's the one for him...

Instead, her twin sister shows up. The one who loathes him.

Julia Blair is already halfway to Coop's ranch when she learns the invitation wasn't for her, but her vivacious twin sister. She has two choices: slink back home, or see just how far this farce will go. One glance at hotter-than-sin Coop, and she knows she's playing a dangerously hot game. Because what this cowboy wants, this cowboy gets...

My Review:

This is my first read by Cathryn Fox, and I must say while this may be a novella, it sizzles with action, sex, and romance.  The depth of the plot line is surprising given the short length of the story.  And yet, I was left completely satisfied with the character development and couldn't help falling in love with Coop and Julia as they stumbled their way into love.

After a night of drinking, three friends - Coop, Jag, & Mac - decide it would be a good idea to invite the ones that got away down to their dude ranch for a week to see if sparks would fly or sizzle out.  Chase Cooper sent an invitation to his gal friend from high school - a girl named Mia whose twin sister was Coop's secret crush.  When the invitation arrives, it's Julia who receives it.  Having no idea who it's from, she decides on a whim to show up in her sister's place.  As she walks off the plane, she is shocked to see Coop waiting.  The truth is - she's always had a crush on him too.  And so their story begins.

The next week is spent getting to know each other - both in and out of bed.  It's obvious they are sexually compatible, but Julia wants someone to want HER, not her sister.  Coop is looking for a permanent relationship, and he believes he's found it in Julia.  But mishaps, misunderstandings, and secrets threatened to destroy the relationship before it gets off the ground.  Can Coop convince Julia that she's the one he wants in only a week?  Is it too late to catch the one that got away?

Slow Ride is a sweet, sinfully sexy story about second chance romances.  It's well written and flows beautifully.  If you like your cowboys smokin' hot & all kinds of trouble and your sex all over the place, this is the book for you!  Sweet, erotic, sizzlin' hot . . . A Must Read!
