Good girl, meet bad cowboy…
Marketing Tycoon Tyler Mackenzie, a.k.a. Wildman Mac, has a knack for knowing what people want and, more importantly, what they need…so when he decides to show sweet and sexy yoga instructor Jess Gray that she’s the one for him, he puts a seductive campaign into motion.
When Mac defines the terms for the week and insists she do everything he says, Jess can’t help but be intrigued. Since this good girl wants to break free and do something naughty, she agrees to his terms and soon finds herself embarking on a sexual journey that knows no limits. For Jess this is one week of living out her fantasies, but Mac is determined to make this wild ride last forever.

While the premise for this book may be just a tad formulaic.
What happens once said guy gets his chosen girl to the ranch is 100% original.
This could not be more true than in the case of Tyler Mackenzie and Jess Grey. When a man says, "You have to agree to do everything I say. No questions asked."... ...more
The second installment of the Playing For Keeps series should come with asbestos gloves. I needed an oxygen mask while reading this novella. I swear, Cathryn Fox was not kidding when she entitled this "Wild Ride" because it is indeed! Beware this novella contains ménage as well as anal sex so pro... ...more
This was one really sexy story that I had to devour in one sitting. I had to know what kinky, naughty, sexy as all get out things Mac would get Jess to do. And oh momma were they hot. But underneath it all, there was a genuine, sweet, endearing heart of a man known for his wild ways. I totally ad... ...more

For the most part she lives a very neat and orderly life, and has never really been known to walk on the wild si... ...more
Okay, this was one sizzling hot and erotic number! Cowboys, ménage and outdoor sex, oh my!
The previous book in the series, Slow Ride, was romantic and sensuous but Ms. Fox definitely upped the heat factor in this one! Tyler Mackenzie has always wondered about his high school crush Jess Gray, the... ...more
Whew! A wild ride indeed!
This super steamy novella (beyond sexy, really) is the story of Jess and Mac. It's the second of a trilogy of books, each standalone and featuring a different couple, all about 3 guys who run a dude ranch in Alberta (though they have lives in Nova Scotia too) and their in... ...more
Heavy on the "erotic"--light on the "romance"...not necessarily a bad thing, but this one definitely could have been expanded and developed more to tell a more complete story and make the romance feel more realistic. Yes, they're friends from way back, but we barely even see it. At times it almos... ...more

I’m an avid Brazen book reader and I have a high standard on naughtiness and emotional connection that I usually use to dictate my feelings toward the stories I read. I wasn’t overly impressed when I read the first story in this series, so I was hesitant in reading “Wild Ride”, which is the secon... ...more
