Peek Inside Sweet Ride

Private investigator Curtis Jagger has always had a thing for overachiever Alix Harris. He suspects she’s just as naughty as she is nice, and he’s determined to show her that being bad can be sexy as hell. On his ranch and in front of his 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. A world that can’t include Jagger or she’ll lose everything.

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.

This is the 3rd and final book in the Playing for Keeps series. Although I REALLY think we need Blake's story, but that's a topic for another day!

Of all 3 books, this one is my favorite. I love Jag and Alix together. They're both troubled souls for very differing reasons but I think that's what make ...more

In this third installment of the PLAYING FOR KEEPS series, the nerdy kid grows up to be the smoking hot leading man, and I totally adored Jag. He's smart as can be, and has this super sweet, earnest demeanor that makes him so damned endearing. And if the first book in the series was all about pure r ...more

4.5 / 5 stars

Alix and Jagger were definitely a good choice to round out this series of the best friends who wanted a second, real chance with the girls from high school they never got over.

I loved cynical Alix -- she had every right to be, afterall. A mysterious invitation, a man she hadn't seen si ...more

Quick, hot, romance story about a rancher, Jag, who offers a girl he fell in love with back in high school to spend a week on their ranch to see if they could rekindle their friendship and possibly move on to a more serious relationship. Although the premises book is interesting, the development of ...more

By Denise November 14, 2015

One thing is for sure I found I liked this one better. Having read the one before it I liked the characters and the storyline because Jag had quite the challenge set before him. Alix might be the girl he remembers but the girl that comes is there thanks to seeing something that has her running away ...more

Cathryn Fox has done it again with Sweet Ride. I was very much looking forward to this story after reading the first two books in the Playing for Keeps series. Coop and Mac both had great stories and I couldn't wait for Jag's. I loved the concept of these three men inviting their high school crushes ...more

By Barrie Mac December 13, 2015

This is an odd storyline...three guys invite three girls from high school that they had a crush on to their ranch for a week to get to know each other. It's just hard to wrap my head around as WHO DOES THAT? But the story works! In the third book of the Playing for Keeps series, sweet Jag who was an ...more

By Ginny November 25, 2015

Just like the title, this book was sexy and sweet.

Like the series itself, the story was short and straight to the point. Jag and Alix, being on opposite side of the tracks didn't peruse anything back when they were in high school. Doesn't mean they didn't want to. So this idea of reaching out to th ...more

By Jimnlori September 28, 2015

Awesome conclusion to Cathryn Fox's Playing for Keeps series.
Jag has always been interested in Alix, but he was from the wrong side of town. When he and his friends made the plan to anonymously invite the girls that they thought got away from their youth, he thought of Alix.
Alix got on that plane w ...more

By Lori November 24, 2015

To say I loved Jag would be an understatement. He was perfect. Perfectly sweet, perfectly tempting, perfectly protective, perfectly hot and sexy. I loved the way he brought out Alix's true self and supported her. They were a great couple to read.

I have read all three stories in this series and enjo ...more
