Publisher's Summary

One lucky woman…three sexy cowboys…she's in for the ride of her life!

Channing Kinkaid itches for a change; a wild western adventure with an untamed man. Determined to shed her inhibitions and embrace the steamier, seamier side of life, she sets her sights on hooking up with a real chaps-and-spurs-wearing cowboy. Enter Colby McKay - bull rider, saddle bronc buster and calf roper. From the moment he sets lust-filled eyes on the sweet and fiery Channing, he knows he's found the woman who's up to the challenge of cutting loose. What rough and rowdy cowboy could resist a no-holds-barred sexual romp with a sassy young thing starring as his personal buckle bunny?

Intrigued by Channing's bold proposition of horsing around on the road, Colby impulsively sweetens the deal; sexual escapades not only in his bed, but in the bedrolls of his rodeo traveling partners, Trevor and Edgard. Although Channing's secretly longed to be the sole focus of more than one man's passions, Colby's demand for complete submission behind closed doors will test her willful nature. Can Channing give up total control? Especially when not all is as it seems with the sexy trio? Or will the cowboys have to break out the bullropes and piggin' string to break in this headstrong filly?

    Any additional comments?

    I've got my Ropes, Spurs and Hat out plus just packed my Saddle bags, so I'm ready for action.... And Boy did i get it with this book. I really, really like this series.

    At the start of this book Channing has basically run away from the pre-planned life that her parents have set up for her. Channing’s idea of adventure is chasing the rodeo and it turns out that Channing’s first traveling partner is a slime ball. Enter our white knight, Colby McKay and his traveling partner’s Trevor Glanzer and Edgar Mancuso. Colby offer’s Channing the adventure that she’s been looking for and Channing, how is completely attracted to Colby, can’t help but jump at the chance.

    What really attracted me to this book was that everything wasn’t what it seemed with a couple of the characters. That and Colby McKay is a total Alpha male with a practically insatiable sexual appetite. As the 4 amigo’s roll along everyone learns a little something about each other. Which as the story progresses makes things very interesting.

    Sexually, pretty much anything goes in Long Hard Ride. At times Colby was a little bit TO Alpha for me but it seems that just when I wanted to write him off as an ass he did something to redeem himself to me. I will say this, it does get very wild. Lot's of 3 male on female action so if loads of - every way you can do it Sex is not for you best stay away....

    Story
    "Sure ain't no John Wayne!!!"
    What made the experience of listening to Long Hard Ride the most enjoyable?

    Lorelai James is an extremely talented writer. Beware as the content is quite strong!!! Being that the case, her ability to portray feelings, hurt, anger, passion and love is surreal. I think that she may just be my favourite author about now because she can really deliver!!!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    It's hard for me to choose because I also enjoyed the secondary characters. I can see the way she introduced them that eventually we will be hearing their story but it's just so well done. There are many, many, characters in this book and they are all relevant and just as important as the others. There is a perfect balance of character development, situation building, evenly paced and expertly presented. This series promises entertainment for a long time.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    In this first book, Colby, obviously, but no doubt that Trevor and Edgard will later on capture my heart too. In fact all the Mackays in one form or another will no doubt leave me breathless.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Yes I did in that, although the content was "strong" for me, it was so incredibly well written and the importance of the lives of the characters was just as elevated as the "steamy" side of the story that I laughed, cried, sighed and thought a lot...


    Any additional comments?

    I think that given the chance this book will apeal to many people because even if you don't want to say you enjoyed it, you have no choice but to admit it! I loved it. Can't wait to start book 2. One more thing, REBECCA ESTRELLA did an amazing job of the narration! I think she must be Southern, or a bit of a Cowgirl herself cause she's just too good at it. I wouldn't really know being a Spaniard born and bred in London, but you'll know what I mean when you listen to her. She did an awesome job of it!!!

    "Surprised me."

    It was actually pretty good. The story was ok, but i wanted a book with steamy sexscenes and not so much of a story, and that was what i got! so get this if u need some afternoon blush in your cheeks! theres a little bit of i all, Lorelei variates the sex a lot and it makes the book work all the way through!

    Story
    "WOW! THESE ROUGH RIDERS AINT PLAYIN'!"

    This one scores off the charts for eroticism, be warned it is definitely not for the faint of heart when it comes to the sexy times! I also enjoyed the narrator; although there wasn't a lot of variation in voice characterization, she really got into it the 'country drawl' and I loved it, especially Colby! He can lasso me up any day of the week!

    What made me enjoy this so much is that it had a pretty solid storyline that I could get into, which was surprising. I've enjoyed other Lorelei James books immensely so I figured I could take a chance; so glad I did, I'm all in for the remainder of the series!

    "Long Hard Ride is HOT and Sexy!!"

    WOW, the blend of western romance and contemporary erotic makes this book explosive!!!

    Channing has escaped her life where she feels like she doesn't belong and run off to join the Rodeo tour with a real life cowboy. When that cowboy turns out to be one big sleazeball she is left wondering what now? Enter Colby, one sexy ass, strong ALPHA cowboy who wants nothing more than for Channing to join him and his mates for the rest of the Rodeo tour. The catch is that she must be willing to share her bed with all three whenever and however they want. The thought excites Channing and she quickly agrees to his proposal.

    The sexcapades that ensue are freaking HOT. The sex scenes vary between F/M, M/M & M/F/M so if that's not your thing then don't buy this book. This book was extremely easy to listen to and flowed along at a good pace. It was not deep and heavy which I liked but rather mixes a HEA romance with an erotic twist. The M/M romance sub story was interesting and I hope there is another book in the series that resolves this couple's story. Although this is part of a series it can be read as a standalone so enjoy without worrying about a cliff hanger :)

    I'm not usually a fan of western romance but Lorelei James has written this book so well she may have just converted me ;) If you love cowboys and some steamy sex then you will LOVE this book!!!

    Rebecca Estrella was fantastic with the delivery of the story.

    "YEEEHAW, ANOTHER GREAT SERIES STARTS OFF"

    Every so often I find myself drawn to a Lorelei James, Sarah McCarty book (or similar great authors from this particular genre) and woah, wee hee and ding ding this listen sure doesn't disappoint as you can clearly visualise all the drool-worthy men wearing chaps, cowboy hats, boots and spurs.

    City girl Channing is running away from an overbearing dictatorial family and wants adventure so has hooked up doing the Rodeo Circuits and it's there that she meets tough talking, sexy and hot, Ultra Alpha Cowboy Cole who makes her a proposition that involves his 2 other, equally hot, travelling partners Edgar and Trevor and the rest, they say, is history.

    This listen has a good plot, great characters who have sizzling chemistry and the sex isn't just hot..... it's nuclear. There's Dom/sub, light bondage, M/F, M/F/M and M/M action which was red hot but, at times, it was also loving as the four of them tried to sort out and come to terms with their feelings for one another. It also give some insight to the trial, tribulations and heartaches of the Rodeo scene which soon separates the men from the boys.

    However, IMHO, I thought it needed another chapter or an Epilogue to wrap things up nicely but maybe, further into this series, we will learn more of the couple's HEA ending from all the other McKay siblings.

    Worth a credit? It's a heart-stopping, jaw dropping, raunchy erotica romance which gets it's HEA but just not for all involved. It would have been worth a credit but my $10 rule applied and I saved my credit for a more expensive, but maybe not as star-worthy, listen

    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    It would have been PERFECT if there were a more complicated back story - however, this is a superficial, cowboy, fantasy that delivers just that. As it was it was very enjoyable.


    Did Rebecca Estrella do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    She is sort of robotic (with a western accent), but she was able to differentiate between the characters.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yep! Cannot wait to get the rest of the series.


    Any additional comments?

    Not for the faint of heart or the typical romance reader. This is down and dirty and nothing is held back or left to the imagination.

    STRONG language and MATURE themes

    "City girl + cowboys = steamy story"

    This book will amp up the "whew" factor in your listening. Erotic scenes of every type with a sprinkling of storyline to link them together is what will you get with this.
    She's rejecting her life of parental expectations, for a short period of time, before her planned return to being a proper, well-bred, responsible young adult. They are a trio of cowboys on the rodeo circuit looking for a week-long companion to make their travel more interesting. Passion is the next stop on the road.
