His to Ride

4.3 Stars
From 30 Reviews

I hate Cole Patterson.
He's arrogant, rich, and now that he's turned pro as a bronc rider, the locals think he's a god. He's built like one, too, and the one night stand we had was hot as hell. But I dumped him, because I've got a long list of reasons why I can't be with Cole.
Only he's not taking no for an answer.
He's back in town, and pestering me for a second chance. When he taunts me into playing Texas Hold Em, I expect to win. I"m lucky at cards, and Cole promises to leave me alone if I win. But if I lose, he gets another ride.
I didn't expect him to win. But he does, and now I know I'm screwed. Literally. Cole aims to break me in his way, and if he can't have me, he's going to ruin me for any other man.
What the hell have I done?

irritated me so much that I just couldn't continue reading

by Valeen

His to Ride was a DNF for me. I had to stop at about 29% because it irritated me so much that I just couldn't continue reading.

Gina is a cowgirl competing at a rodeo when her past one night stand shows up and throws off her concentration so she comes in second in her event. When Cole shows up in front of her afterward, he lays down a challenge that she can't back down from, not when in front of all the onlookers surrounding them. She loses the game of Texas Hold 'em and has to agree to one more ride from him. Yee haw. Yuck.

It's while they're having his hard won sex that he lays down another challenge - she has 8 seconds to get him out of her. If she loses she agrees to spend a week with him as his slave, for him to do with whatever he wants, however he wants, whenever he wants. Hm, could be sexy, but the way it's executed is so degrading that I couldn't find it in my heart to continue reading. He talks about "breaking her" and calls her things like filly. He even goes so far as to using a hair brush on her butt, but no talk of safewords, not even consent from her. BDSM and punishment/spanking/flogging are all fine and dandy, but there have to be rules and things like consent BEFOREHAND, otherwise it's not OK.

And then there's the fact that he talks like he's a hick some of the time and at others he sounds completely different. It completely threw me off. It would have been OK if he had talked like that the whole time, but to only speak like that sometimes? Weird, just weird.

Ugh, sorry but His to Ride irritated me so much that I rolled my eyes and I just couldn't finish it. A total waste of my time, unfortunately.

Loved this intriguing, sexy, dirty read!!!

by Misty Schott

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
This is the first time I have read this author and I must say I loved this intriguing, sexy, dirty read. Cole and Gina Louise went to school together and have been dancing around the fact they have feelings for eachother. Unfortunately Gina Louise's dad swindled a lot of people in town including Cole's dad and he ended up going to prison. Last year Cole got Gina Louise to have a night of awesome $ex with him, but the very next day she said that was all it would ever be. This year at the local rodeo Cole shows up and Gina Louise is mad because she ends up losing her barrel racing event. She gets pulled into a hand of Texas hold 'em with Cole for a repeat of their night together. Cole wins and Gina Louise goes with him to the same hotel they were at last time. Cole decides to give her a chance to get out of the bet by making another bet with her. If she loses this bet she must stay with him for a week and do everything he says because he wants her to be with him forever. Gina Louise really believes she is no good for Cole especially after what her dad did. So she takes the bet again and she loses. Grab this book to go on the wild, sexy ride she has with Cole and see if he can get her to be his against all the odds. This is a great book and definitely a must read.

Hot Cowboy Romance.....But Not For Everyone

by Aunt G

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
His to Ride by Ava Sinclair is a good read. Hot, spicy and a bit over the top. Contains some subject matter that may be offending to some. Is a good quick read with a lot of heat.

Winning The Bet

by MJM2003

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review. Gina's father is in prison for swindling Cole's father. They really didn't stand a chance to be a couple together but the passion and chemistry between them was explosive and could not be ignored. They had one night together then she walked away. He's now back home and wants her back and will do anything to get her. This was a fun read by Ava Sinclair who consistently produces terrific romances. In this one there are plenty of HOT steamy scenes, great characters as I expect from Ava and a few nice twist to make the story leap off the page. This is a real page turner and I definitely recommend it :)

Fun read

Like some of the other reviewers, I did not appreciate the pet names Cole had for Gina. Aside from that, it was a great second chance romance.

Sweet and Sexy

by Mom2three

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review. I read this in one day, partly because it isn't very long and partly because I didn't put it down. I loved the rodeo/cowboy/cowgirl theme. It's not something I'm real familiar with, but everything was explained in enough detail that I could actually imagine the sights and the smells. That was one of the things that helped keep me in the story. I loved that it was a sexy romance with sweet moments and some intrigue. This kept this BDSM story from getting dark. It stayed light and romantic until the end. I loved Cole and Gina Louise ( I love the double name) and all of their interactions. I also really loved all the nicknames Cole used for Gina Louise when he wasn't calling her Gina Louise. Yes, I have a thing for double names. Cole was domineering without being a jerk, and Gina Louise was OK with Cole being in control, while she stayed strong and independent. I actually enjoyed this book more than I expected, because of the rodeo theme, and I'm so glad I picked it up.

Awesome read!!!

by Tresha

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review. This book was really good. It drew you in and kept your attention until you were done reading it. The chemistry between Cole and Gina was awesome. Their witty comments, and the way he gets her to do what he wants was entertaining. The story line was great, and I recommend you read this book.

Cowgirl!

by Lene Norway

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

This second chance story is original. It's fast paced filled with action, hot sex scenes and humorous dialog.

Colt behavior is inconsistent and makes the story a little harder to follow. He is a handsome sexy misbehaving alpha males with big a heart, and he acts accordingly. Even though I might be against his behavior, it makes sense in the end

His Way

by S Lange

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

I have read another one of this author’s book “Mastering The Fangirl” and I liked it so decided to give this book a read.

The elements that I liked about the other book with the male character this one didn’t even come close to having. This book had some four star moments and went from three star to two star at times I settled on three stars.

The four-star moments come from the description of barrel riding by our female lead Gina. You can practically envision yourself on horseback taking those barrels at break neck speed and later on in the book when she is riding another horse you can feel her love and appreciation of a well trained responsive horse. When Cole is bronco riding “Twister” you suspect he won’t get bucked off but you are secretly rooting that he might to give Gina the satisfaction of seeing him eat dust you feel the adrenaline and excitement generated by the cheering crowd. The bond and affection that Gina has for her friend, Winona has all the earmarks of a long-standing supportive friendship. This is where the four-star moments come from.

What brought it down for me were the actions of Cole. Yes I get in the rodeo/bronco circuit there is a lot of testosterone and male bravado by the bucket full. You have a rep to maintain etc…He and Gina had one night together in the past and she decided to bail and not get involved. He is determined to prove to her that he is the one for her. Gina has had to work really hard the last few years to overcome and incident created by a family member and it has made her a very independent woman.

Cole decides he wants to break her to fit him. Guess he has never heard about gentling a horse where it wants to follow you willingly without the need to break its spirit. Not sure what disciplining a full-grown woman like she is a disobedient child with twenty lashes to her rear end with a brush is supposed to show her. I get light spanking with your hand and even an impact toy for pleasure but there was no pleasure in this it was a man showing he can use his strength to get his way.

He would go from sounding like an educated man to a stereotypical uneducated country bumpkin. Not sure if the switching between the two speech patterns was supposed to be humorous but it was just distracting and a bit off putting, at least for me it was. Cole would do some sweet things then say something crass and just kind of ruin the mood. Not sure how some of the things he said and did were supposed to have her fall for him. There was never a discussion about safe sex, he just went in bare and released.

This book was a far cry from the other book that I read from this author, where that male character really helped the young lady believe in herself and build her self-esteem. This book he wanted her to depend on him and only him and when she tried to show her independence he would threaten her with spankings or other things to keep her in line, he wanted Gina to change herself for him instead of seeing that her strengths would be a great asset in their relationship.

At least the author did have a nice wrap up at the end explaining the last few years of the characters lives.

Rodeo Tug of War

by lisagk

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review. I like that Cole is a man who knows what he wants, doesn't let anything stand in his way and goes for it. There is one scene that is a little overboard for me, but it turns out all right. I did get a little bit irked at Gina for letting herself have so little confidence where Cole is concerned, considering how confident she is in every other aspect of her life, but that is part of what makes the book. Loved it.

Good, but could have been better.

by Arch_Angel

"I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review"

I wasn’t sure if I’d enjoy this story when it first started out, as the theme appeared to incorporate forced sexual submission. As the story progressed I realised that while the man lead Cole, is definitely a Dom personality, Gina could have refused his offer or the outcome of the bet they made, and it wasn’t just her pride, but her undeniable need for Cole’s dominance that fuelled her decision.

As the story developed, you come to see Cole’s genuinely deep-seated love for Gina and his determination to rid himself of the rigid family expectations and the chokehold of his father. So while the start didn’t capture me, the outcome was satisfying and I ended up liking both characters.

I will say the writing was a little stilted, and could definitely benefit from more ease of flow.
