Genres: Cowboys/Western Romance

A sexy category romance novella from Entangled's Brazen imprint...

He's looking for love. She's looking for trouble...

As a successful doctor and weekend cowboy, Chase Cooper enjoys a full life with plenty of female company. But lately, something hasn't felt right. He's been distracted. Antsy. Damn it, he's been lonely. With an eye on settling down with a nice girl, Coop invites his high school best friend down to his ranch to see if maybe she's the one for him...

Instead, her twin sister shows up. The one who loathes him.

Julia Blair is already halfway to Coop's ranch when she learns the invitation wasn't for her, but her vivacious twin sister. She has two choices: slink back home, or see just how far this farce will go. One glance at hotter-than-sin Coop, and she knows she's playing a dangerously hot game. Because what this cowboy wants, this cowboy gets...

My Review

Slow Ride is the first book in a new series called Playing for Keeps   that has a HEA and  can be read as a standalone. This book was a short read for me. It took me about an hour and half to read so it is perfect for the carpool line. I don’t know about y’all but my brother gets to the line super early and I managed to read this book while I waiting with him one day.

Julia has some issues in that even though she and her twin are identical she feels that she is not as good as her supermodel sister. In high school there was a guy that she liked but since he was her sister’s best friend  and well she moved on, grew up, and became a successful lawyer. Thanks to a drunk night with his two best friends Coop get talked into inviting Julia’s sister to his dude ranch to find out if the one who got away is the one for them which he regrets right away. The reason is that  Coop always had a thing for Julia.

However when Julia is the one who gets off the plane they are both surprised and Julia can’t wait to leave. Coop however wants to explore those feelings of what might have been and he convinces Julia to stay. Ever thought about the one that got away or that might have gotten away? I think we all do and this is a story of how great they are once they finally let their feelings be known. It was a great second chance romance read and I enjoyed the characters.

    I’ve haven’t read too many cowboy romance books, this sounds very good. I also like quick reads for those crazy times when you need a break and a good book is the perfect thing.
