I am a huge fan of Lorelei James. The narration almost ruined it for me. Just not masculine enough for these tough manly cowboys. I can't wait to listen to the other Rough Riders Series books. I hope they come out soon.
I'm proud to be a bookaholic...addicted, obsessed, passionate!!! My favorite way to relax & escape reality....
Great book BUT would be even greater if audible would get the rest of the series.
My fellow reviewers have pretty much said it all about this book - it's passionate, romantic, 2 likeable main characters who are facing similar challenges in their successful careers are accidentally but happily thrown together. Trouble is he's sworn off sex and she's looking for some so can she wait or will he give in.
Not as hot as some of her other books but still an adult only listen and very enjoyable.
Worth a credit? I have found all her books to be very creditworthy but come on Audible we want more L.J. to add to our libraries please.
Hot romance/Sci Fi we're so lucky to have Audible to feed our book addictions. I love walking my precious dog Sydney & listening to my books
Lorelei James does a great job with this fast paced book. Vanessa Caine does and excellent job as narrator. There were some steamy sex scenes and I found this book kept me wondering what would happen next. Over all a great listen. )
I've always been a avid reader so now I'm a avid listener. I prefer the paranormal genre but I do like to switch things up. It's boring if you don't have variety. Of course I do love the romance and the hotter the better. Also, you can't beat a good thriller filled with suspense and a ending you can't even guess at until the very end.
Romantic, sensual and dramatic!
In my opinion this is the perfect listen! The passion between Chase and Ava sizzles. The story is so interesting. I did not stop listening to this one from beginning to end!!! I will be eagerly awaiting the others!
yes,I love Lorelei's books, I love Scarlet as the narrator on the earlier audio books, I just couldn't get in to Vanessa Caine voice.She makes the male voice sound to immature, and I just think a rough rider should sound a little rough.
Ever had Audible suggest something for you, where you stop, blink, and wonder if there's a glitch? The computer must have a virus or something? Because that suggestion is *nothing* like what you normally listen to? Well that's what I thought when "Chasin' Eight" came up as something I would like. I mean - cowboys? Bullriders? I like Earls and Dukes and sometimes Demons or Vampires. Not Cowboys.
It turns out Audible was very very right. After half an hour I was not only hooked but utterly converted - full on Western lover. "Hoooooo yeah. Bullriders!" Chase McKay is one HOT professional bullrider who is used to getting everything he wants. The story opens with him in an explicit threesome that doesn't exactly go his way. Suddenly he doesn't get sex all day everyday with the always willing "buckle bunnies" on the rodeo circuit, now he has to lie low and keep scandal free.
Ava Cooper is an LA actress whose series has been dropped, who is being stalked by the paparazzi, and who lost her confidence the moment she discovered her boyfriend came out to the world before he did to her.
Chase organises to hide out in his ranching cousin's old trailer to avoid the temptation of sex. Ava escapes to her lawyer friend's cabin hoping she can have a holiday fling with a cowboy, any cowboy, to get some of her mojo back.
It's at that trailer where they meet. In the middle of the night. Naked.
The story goes from strength to strength from there on out. The pair form a tentative friendship, change up their looks and go on the road, hoping to rebuild Chase's bullriding career and Ava's filmmaking eye. On the way there's some serious UST, then lust, then genuine love.
The characters are hyper-real and hyper-hot. Chase and Ava both grow as people as they fall in love but they're still sparky firecrackers the pair of them and it's engrossing. Not to mention erotic! I couldn't bring myself to even pause this story.
Props to the narrator - I thought she did a terrific job with both Chase and Ava. Some of those steamy scenes in the middle were almost melting my earbuds!
If you haven't met the Rough Riders series yet, then know that Chase is just one among a slew of hunky McKay brothers and cousins, each and every one of them ready to be fallen in love with. Don't let the fact that this is book 8 put you off. This is a self-contained story and a great place to start. It does a great job of introducing you to a Wyoming family filled with plenty more rough and ready characters to capture your heart.
Tell us about yourself!
Haven't read the print version
I love the connection with the family and also the world of rodeo itself. The relationship with the kid is great.
Make no mistake between my personality and my attitude. My personality is who I am, my attitude depends on who you are.........
Couldn't wait for this series to come to Audible and boy was it worth it!!! I don't know why she started with only one book and it's from the middle of the series, but after listening who the hell cares!!!!
Fabulous narrator!!! Now where are the others?????
“I love all genres of books, however when I listen to audio books as I clean, garden, drive they are better with a lot of heat!
This book was fantastic! Great story line that was easy to follow, always kept you guessing, and even threw you for a loop now and again. Plus it included lots of steamy hot scenes. I'd definitely recommend this book. But Audible where are the other books in the Rough Rider series. Lorelei James is fabulous and I plan to listen lots more of her books.
I thought the narrator did a good job with the delivery of the story.
