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.
I wasn't overly crazy about the first book in the Playing for Keeps series, Slow Ride, but I had to read Wild Ride. And oh my gosh, I seriously love this standalone story. The title fits this book perfectly.
Tyler “Wildman Mac” Mackenzie and his two best friends from high school have a drunken conversation, where they reminisce about the one who got away. Mac, Coop, and Jag all decide to send an anonymous invitation to the girl they can’t stop thinking about and invite her to their ranch retreat.
For Mac, his girl is his childhood crush and former neighbor, Jess Gray. Growing up, Mac and Jess were always close, spending time together and understanding each other. Things changed when they got to high school. Tyler became loud and wild, in order to standout in his large family and at school. Jess continued to be the shy, introverted girl she always was. Now ten years after high school, the two are finally getting a chance to explore their feelings that have always been just buried under the surface.
There aren’t enough words to express how much I loved Wild Ride. Due to her shyness, yoga instructor Jess isn’t too experienced. She does have a very vivid imagination and likes to write her fantasies down in her journal. When Mac discovers her journal, he’s determined to help her fulfill a couple of her wishes. With voyeurism, MFM action, self-discovery, and love, I found Wild Ride to be a fantastic book to lose myself in.
I loved that you could feel Jess and Mac’s feelings through the pages. There’s no doubt they love and care about each other. Mac isn’t one of those male heroes who have “duh” moments who seems to be unaware of something he’s done wrong. He’s gentle and caring and truly wants what’s best for Jess. While I loved Wild Ride like crazy, I did want just a little bit more. If you read the book, then you will more than likely know what I’m talking about. I’m looking forward to the third and final novella in this series, Sweet Ride.
