Cowgirl Up and Ride (Rough Riders Book 3)

Cowgirl Up and Ride (Rough Riders Book 3) is the first book by Lorelei James that really sucked me in!


Ridin’ the edge of lust is fun…until someone falls in love.

For years, goody-two boots AJ Foster wished her dream man Cord McKay would see her beyond the girl in pigtails. Now that she’s old enough to stake her claim on him, she challenges the cowboy to teach her how to ride—and she doesn’t mean horses.

Saddled with running the McKay ranch, dealing with the wild behavior of his brother and cousins, and raising his young son alone, divorced rancher Cord has sworn off all women. Yet AJ’s innocence and sexual curiosity is a temptation he can’t resist.

From the start of their bedroom games, they’re both aware the pull between them goes deeper than just smokin’ hot sex. Although the sexy cowgirl sets his blood ablaze, Cord is determined to withstand AJ’s efforts to lasso his battered heart. But AJ isn’t willing to settle for less than the whole shootin’ match with her western knight.

Sweet AJ has the power to heal—or heel—the gruff cowboy…unless Cord’s pride keeps him from admitting their relationship is more than a simple roll in the hay.

*** This edition includes an exclusive 1st chapter from UNBREAK MY HEART, Lorelei James's exciting New Adult series—Rough Riders Legacy—featuring Boone & Sierra, now available! ***

My Review:

So far, this is my favorite Lorelei James book!  I absolutely adored AJ and Cord!

AJ is known to be a goody-goody.  Cord is known to be one of the wild McKay boys turned boring and responsible.

AJ is no longer the little neighbor girl.  She’s grown, gorgeous, and has a plan for Cord.  Cord is biding his time while he waits for his young son to come back home and temptation calls.  Little does he know exactly what that temptation would become to him.

Who says that dreams can’t come true?  In my opinion, when you work for it, it’s even sweeter when you finally have it realized.

This book actually made me cry.  I’m not someone who cries at the drop of a hat.  But the pain I felt for AJ and Cord struck me and got me even more addicted to Lorelei James’s work.  There is serious hotness, joy and sorrow, lust and love, moments of “wowzers”, and devastation.  And at the end? Hope.  I can’t wait to read more from this awesome author!
