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…

Previously released on Entangled’s Flaunt imprint as Cowboy’s Way – November 2013 and has been enhanced with new material.

3.5 - ”In my world… the woman screams first.” Stars!

Slow Ride is a quick, sexy read. I flew through this one in my lunch hour, so if you are looking for a little escapism from your work day, I recommend you give this title a try.

Nothing beats a good Second-Chance romance, especially if the girl in q ...more

Amazingly good read!!! Read this book in two days. Julia is always being mistaken for her twin sister, so when an invitation to a Dude Ranch comes it’s not clear who it’s for. She jumps on a plane anyway. Coop is happily surprised to see the right-wrong sister show up. His friends plot to bring a mi ...more

Loved Coop and Julia's story. Julia is the twin of the girl (Mari) who Coop was good friends with growing up. Of course everyone thought that Coop and Mari were in a relationship, but Coop really wanted Julia, not Mari. Fast forward 10 years, and the 3 co-owners of the Dude Ranch decide to invite th ...more

Are you looking for a hot, sexy novella? Then look no further than Slow Ride by Cathryn Fox. When this book was originally released in 2013 under a different title, I really liked it.
