Book Blast Tour for Ride a Cowboy by Desiree Holt (Review & GIVEAWAY)


To get through the freezing tempurartures warm up with the sexy and steamy anthology Ride A Cowboy by Desiree Holt.  Keep reading to get a taste of this story along with my impressions of it and make sure to leave a comment below for your chance to win a $50 GC.

Two hot stories in one hot volume
Back In The Saddle
When Molly Hayes' marriage fell apart, she ran home to Hayes Ranch to lick her wounds. What she really wants to lick is foreman Chance McDaniel, the star of all her erotic fantasies. But he had never given her the time of day. Why would he give her his nights?
Kink is a mild term for the kind of sex Chance McDaniel enjoys. But he's learned the hard way not all women can handle his darker desires. He aches to give Molly the ride of her life but fears she'll shy away from his wilder ways.
Will the past become a stumbling block or will both Molly and Chance, once wounded, climb back in the saddle?
Eight Second Ride
Jessie Wade is a tough as nails sheriff until bull rider Kyle Mitchell ends up in her jail. With his bone-melting good looks and seductive voice, he knocks Jessie's defenses down one by one and awakens the sensuous woman she's hidden beneath her uniform. But Jessie can't afford to be soft. Or allow herself to fall for a cowboy who's never in one town longer than it takes to ride a bull.
Kyle never backs down from a challenge, but after a passionate night with Jessie, he realizes there's a hell of a woman behind the handcuffs and badge. Can Kyle convince Jessie he can take her for more than an eight-second ride?

MY IMPRESSIONS OF THIS BOOK:

Readers looking for a way to get rid of those winter chills will find lots of heat from this super steamy anthology featuring two stories set in the rugged world of cowboys.  Back in the Saddle reunites old friends who were always attracted to each other but are now free to finally act on those feelings.  Molly has been left with low self-esteem courtesy of a cheating ex-husband which has her questioning her desirability.  She needn't worry though as the strong and commanding Chance shows her through numerous BDSM-lite scenes.  Chance is happy to have a woman fully accepting of his desires and goes out of his way to draw her into his erotic play.  These sexual interludes take up most of the story leaving a little room for emotional connection.

In Eight Second Ride an arrogant yet charming bull rider Kyle finds himself attracted to the strong-willed female sheriff Jessie.  Jessie is used to being in control both in and out of the bedroom which wins Kyle over and gives him thoughts of long-term if he can just show Jessie that it's okay to give up control and take a chance on the unknown.  Again there's numerous erotic scenes with a bit of BDSM play but we also get to see them interact as a couple in the outside world which made for a more satisfying story.

Both stories are a delightfully steamy way to spend an afternoon and I enjoyed their fantasy feel.  The men were dominate and the women happy to have their dreams fulfilled and it's left me wanting to read more from Ms. Holt.

My rating for this is C+
