Short Rides (Rough Riders 14.5)

Short Rides (Rough Riders 14.5) is a wonderful compilation of “after HEA” glimpses of three of my favorite Rough Rider stories.

Synopsis:

Short Rides is an anthology compilation of two novellas and one short story in the Rough Riders world. These are NOT meant to be read as standalone stories, but are a peek into favorite character's lives after the happily ever after...

The stories included in the Short Rides anthology are:

King of Hearts* -- Deputy Cam McKay deals with a murder/suicide case on Valentine's Day.

Rough Road -- Chassie, Trevor and Edgard Glanzer spend a romantic weekend away from the ranch and kids celebrating their anniversary...only to return home to face their biggest challenge yet.

All Knocked Up -- Keely and Jack Donohue are having a baby. Given Keely's raging pregnancy hormones, will Jack need to wear a cup in the delivery room?

*previously published in the Guns and Roses anthology in 2012

Ceej’s Review:

King of Hearts…I felt so bad for Cam.  What a thing to have to see!  Yes, he’s a veteran.  Yes, he’s a deputy.  Regardless of their profession, no one should have to see such horror!  What I loved about this part of the book?  Domini’s understanding and the purest of love pouring from their family.  The very last scene had me blinking away the tears.

Rough Road…Wowzers.  Chassie, Trevor, and Edgard are ALWAYS so freaking hot.  It’s not because it’s a three-way relationship.  It’s because of the love, understanding, and adoration that each one has for the others as individuals.  And the way they parent their kids is so beautiful.  It’s not one is Daddy and the other is Uncle.  They’re both their fathers and it just melts me.  But I admit that the first question, the first line had my temper rising.  I HATE that word.  It’s so ignorant.  Then for it to be repeated by adults who should know better?  UGH.  I was so angry at those parts!  However, the ending had me in tears.  Gotta love it when love, romantic or familial, takes over.

All Knocked Up…had me grinning and laughing.  Well until the last part of it where my heart dropped and that feeling of panic took over.  I always enjoy the relationship between Keely and Jack.  Their family just made me want to snuggle all of them!  I love Keely’s fire so much.  Jack’s adoration of his wife?  That’s what so many of search for.

Lorelei James really knows how to yank those emotions right out.  Whew!
