Synopsis:

He'll unlock her wildest fantasies...

Private investigator Curtis Jagger has always had a thing for Alix Harris. She was the darling of their high school—gorgeous, popular, class president...and, he suspects, just as naughty as she is nice. Now Jag has the opportunity to show her what she's missing. To show her that sometimes being bad can be sexy as hell...

Alix has always done what she's supposed to, and it's gotten her exactly nowhere. Determined to please herself—in every way possible—she accepts Jag's mysterious invitation to his ranch. In front of Jag's camera lens, Alix finds freedom far beyond her expectations. A freedom where she takes the reins and rides out every wicked desire.

But in one week, Alix will have to return to her real world where politics reign. A world that can’t include Jagger, or she’ll lose everything.


My Review:

The final installment in Fox's Playing For Keeps series is wickedly sexy and jam-packed with promises of fulfilling dark fantasies. Coop & Mac have each claimed their one that got away.  Now it's Jag's turn.  Can the boy from the wrong side of the tracks claim the high society, high school queen?  He couldn't back then, but what about now?  Jag is not the nerd he was in high school.  He's a sinfully sexy private investigator.  And it seems that he did some private investigating of his own before inviting Alex down to the ranch for a week of no holds barred live out your fantasy sex!  It seems he has perfect timing as Alex has just learned that her fiance has a very pregnant mistress that he's been keeping on the side.  In spite of having always done what was expected of her, Alex decides to take a chance.  And when Jag decides to call her bluff, they dive into a week of fulfilling her darkest sexual fantasies.  But all good things must come to an end, right?  When the week's over, Alex must choose whether to return to her cheating ex-fiance & high society life or live out her fantasies many times over married to Jag.

Sweet Ride is a wickedly erotic read that will have you seeking a cold shower - or a hot cowboy!  While I enjoyed Jag & Alex's story, I would have liked to see more personal growth and relationship development between them, outside the sex.  I think the lack thereof has more to do with the short length of the novella than anything else.  It may also have to do with the fact that I lost my heart to Coop in book 1!  As always, Cathryn Fox delivers another smokin' hot cowboy story . . .one I'd like to ride off into the sunset!  A Must Read!

My Rating:  3 Wickedly Sexy 's . . .And that's the truth!
