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.
Who doesn’t wonder sometimes if that one crush could have been The One? But not many people actually reach out to find out and that’s why I enjoyed all the books in this series, even though my favorite is the second book.
Alix Harris has spent her life wrapped up in the bonds of duty, tied up by the expectations of her parents and every choice has been made with her father’s political career in mind, even the choice of her fiancé. When she discovers her fiancé’s betrayal, the invitation to a private ranch becomes a lifeline and Alix takes the opportunity to get away from everything for a while.
Curtis Jagger had a crush on Alix in high school but she was out of his league in every sense of the word. Rich, gorgeous and popular while he was as geeky as can be, but now he has a chance to explore that connection further and encourage her to embrace her naughty side and reach out for her desires.
I think that this book, while enjoyable, glossed over the issues that came up because of its length. There was more focus on the physical connection between Jag and Alix and the emotional parts barely skimmed the surface. I wanted more from the characters and the story itself, more depth to their connection, more time for them to delve into the chemistry between them. However, if you’re in the mood for a quick, steamy read, then SWEET RIDE is just the book you need.
