Chasin' Eight: Rough Riders, Book 11 | [Lorelei James]

Chasin' Eight: Rough Riders, Book 11

Suspended until he gets his act together, bull rider Chase McKay has sworn off women. Forever. Or at least a month. Whichever comes first. Actress Ava Cooper became a tabloid target when her boyfriend was outed as gay. When she goes into hiding in an abandoned trailer, though, she finds it occupied by the kind of red-blooded cowboy she needs to prove she’s got the goods between the sheets.

Publisher's Summary

Suspended until he gets his act together, bull rider Chase McKay has sworn off women. Forever. Or at least a month. Whichever comes first.

Actress Ava Cooper became a tabloid target when her boyfriend was outed as gay. When she goes into hiding in an abandoned trailer, though, she finds it occupied by the kind of red-blooded cowboy she needs to prove she’s got the goods between the sheets.

The two headstrong stars quickly end up riding a hot and heady rodeo circuit all their own - until the press gets wind. Is it the real deal…or just another publicity stunt?

    "Ava and Chase"

    I really love all of Lorelei's books but this one was a bit more difficult to finish. Loved Chase - liked Ava a whole lot until the last 1/4 of the book and then not so much.

    "I couldn't finish the first chapter"
    Would you try another book from Lorelei James and/or Vanessa Caine?

    Maybe


    Has Chasin' Eight turned you off from other books in this genre?

    If they keep the same narrator then yes


    Would you be willing to try another one of Vanessa Caine’s performances?

    No


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    I didn't get through enough of it


    Any additional comments?

    I had listen to all 10.5 books before it and when I got to Chasin' Eight it felt like my grandmother was reading to me and that was just uncomfortable.

    Story
    "Whiny Little Chase"

    Chase, the youngest and shortest McKay brother, wasn't that interesting to me. He's a rodeo star who gets as much attention for his sexual escapades as his athletic ability. Since he's over 21, I expected a more mature and engaging hero - maybe someone who appreciated having a loving family and financial security. I did like his non-violent and respectful attitude toward women

    Chase meets Ava, an actress (from a rich & caring family) who was just embarrassed by having her boyfriend publicly announced he was gay. Ava also seems a little immature and whiny - she had artistic talent, good health, and the freedom to pursue interests but choose to dwell on minor problems.

    To me, the best parts of Chasin' Eight were the details about cowboys & rodeos, the down-to-earth people involved in the sport, and glimpses of small town life. Might have liked this book more when I was in my late teens or twenties.

    "Hoping for entire series"

    Some of the books in the Rough Riders series have been a lot more sexually graphic than this book. Chasin' Eight focused more on the story and the characters (although they definitely had some really hot sex going on, too). So for this reason, I would say that Chasin' Eight was a bit more balanced than some of the other books in this series. I didn't feel like I was being constantly bombarded with one sex scene after another.

    I liked how Chase and Ava grew as people throughout their relationship. Their internal conflicts didn't feel manipulative or overly angst-ridden. I wouldn't go so far as to say that it was a "believable" romance, but it definitely was not a Cinderella story like so many contemporary romances are. They were both at a crisis point in their respective lives, and their relationship was basically the catalyst that got them both to move on to better things.

    I also liked the introduction of an unexpected relative in Chase's life towards the of the story. It felt very real to me, and I hope to find out what happens with that relationship if Audible ever gets the rest of the series on board.

    So all in all, I liked the story. It wasn't as over the top as some of the other ones were; wasn't so all about sex; actually felt like real people dealing with real issues.

    As for Vanessa Caine's narration, the first hour or two was very, very bad. Somewhere along the way, though, her voice mellowed out, and she did a much better job. Sometimes I don't know if it's the recording/engineering/sound people who screw up the audio, or if the narrator is really just that bad, but Vanessa Caine started out bad and ended up halfway decent.

    Prior narrator, Rebecca Estrella, is just too flat and boring. Plus she mispronounces words all the time, which drives me crazy. For example, she pronounces "pinged" (think "ping pong") as "pinjed" (think "hinged"). I had to stop and rewind the first time she said that, trying to figure out what the heck that was all about. Thereafter, I understood what she meant when she said "pinjed".

    Of course, the best narrator for Lorelei James's books is Scarlett Chase, but she seems to be only on the Blacktop Cowboys series so far. Wish she could have narrated this series as well.

    Anyway, I liked Chase and Ava's story. The price of it was just about even with the cost of a credit, so I just put it on my credit card rather than use a credit. However, if you're not in a big hurry to go from Book 7 to Book 11 (since #8 through #10 are not available at this time), then wait for a sale or drop some big hints to friends and family that you'd like Chasin' Eight as a gift! :)

    "GREAT STORY"
    Would you listen to Chasin' Eight again? Why?

    Yes but Lorelei James needs to keep using Rebecca Estrella to narrate this series. It would keep you interested


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Chase. He learned that going back to basic is always the best way to learn your mistakes


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    She just didn't keep my interest. the narrator that did the other books in the series Rebecca Estrella did a great job.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I cried when the guy died. He was so young


    Any additional comments?

    I hope the rest of the books in the Rough Rider series come to audible soon.. I went on amazon and downloaded the books so I can see what happens to the the McKay boys, I love the books so far. I enjoy them on audible because I listen to them while I work and it makes the day go by faster.

    "Narrator is so AWFUL that it...."

    Yes, the narrator was so awful that it totally ruined this book. I have no idea if it was a good story by Lorelei James because I could not make it past the first chapter. If you can stand an irritating, gravel, fake southern TWANG accent, then go for it. I couldn't take it. Sorry Lorelei James. I love your books, but this one is ruined for me.

    "Hot...Hot...Hot!!!! Go Rough Riders!!!!"
    What made the experience of listening to Chasin' Eight the most enjoyable?

    The story was hot and steamy, but it did touch on some very important subject matter. I appreciate learning a few new facts within my fiction.


    What other book might you compare Chasin' Eight to and why?

    It fits into the series, but I don't really don't compare it to any other book. I just like learning more about the characters.


    Have you listened to any of Vanessa Caine’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This was my first, and she did pretty good.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, but life does not permit such enjoyment sometimes,


    Any additional comments?

    I had read most of the books in the series, but I had never gotten to this one, so it was a treat. I hope Audible will release all the books in the series. I'd like to hear them all.

    "Been waiting for this series. McKay's -yum"

    Love the Rough Rider series, however where are the first 10 books?!! Wyoming cowboys, the McKays and Wests, all have special stories to tell and are must reads. A better narrator would be nice, but I'll buy and listen to the series no matter who narrates. I check Lorelie every day hoping for more Rough Rider books.......
