    One thought on “A Wild Ride”

    1. **3.5 stars**This was a very sweet romance by new-to-me author Andrew Grey. It has a lot of stuff in it that I usually enjoy. Cowboys? Check! BDSM? Check! Believable romance? Check? So why didn't I adore this one? I think it comes down to the fact that it felt sort of wishy-washy to me at times. There were whole plot elements that sort of faded out or were ignored that I wanted answers to.1) The BDSM element of the story. I actually had no clue from the blurb that this book would have anything b [...]

    2. A great cover and a story about cowboys, well that pretty much guaranteed I was going to read this one as soon as I could and I was not disappointed in the story at all. Ryan and Dante were great characters and definitely hot together. Dante had issues that seemed to fit with the cowboy imagine that he really needed to overcome, and I liked how even though he needed the control, it still was an equal relationship between these two. My only issue was Ryan's past, and not enough was really told or [...]

    3. A Wild Ride is a suitable title for this book. Ryan and Dante were really good together and I enjoyed this book. It has BDSM but don't let that put you off. It was mild and not at all like some of the BDSM books out there. It was everything I wanted it to be and more. So much more and I can't begin to say how good this book was.Ryan and Dante as a couple was just right. It was nice to see how the BDSM did not stop them from switching in the book. An added bonus was the fact it didn't spill into [...]

    4. I really enjoyed this story of Dante, a bull rider who is juggling so much in his life (nearing the end of his career, looking after his ill grandfather and hiding his sexual identity) and Ryan, who has been struggling with his own sexual leanings.Ryan is openly gay but an event in his past means he has been leading a 'vanilla' sex life. He meets Dante in a bar and immediately knows that they each have something the other wants (I am not exactly sure what Ryan saw in Dante that made him think th [...]

    5. 3.5 StarsAndrew Grey wrote a book that captured me from the get go. He gave me everything I want in a romance. The two MC's were great. They both had to give what the other needed, and they blended together beautifully. The pace was fast but not rushed. It had a very realistic feel about it. He didn't ignore the truth of how hard it would be for a bull rider to be openly gay, and the trials that would come from that. The steam between the MC's was palpable, but the writing didn't go for over the [...]

    6. Oh Andrew, you made this reader very happy. The plot, the Characters, the sex scenes, found everything I needed here.This is one of the reasons I read M/M stories, perfection!!!

    7. Enjoyed this story about bull rider Dante and financial advisor Ryan. After losing the bull riding championship Dante meets and spends the night with Ryan. Ryan sees what Dante needs and his dominant personality in bed makes Dante question whether he can handle what Ryan makes him feel. Added to family troubles and the possibility of losing his sponsorships, every aspect of Dante's life is thrown into question.Well written story line, good secondary characters and great chemistry between the two [...]

    8. A Wild Ride is the perfect title for this story – because the main character faces an uphill battle to win the rodeo, and because both main characters don’t have an easy relationship, but one that contains obstacles in every area imaginable. From health issues, to homophobic villains, to attacks and inner doubts, they face it all. And yet, the connection and chemistry between Dante, the rodeo rider, and Ryan, the stock broker from Houston, is hot enough to burn the sheets, and they're both s [...]

    9. Full review can be found at On Top Down Under Book Reviews.Dante is a bull rider a year away from retirement. He knows he's at an age to retire but he wants that elusive championship under his belt first. While not competing, he takes care of his ailing grandfather, Hy. After losing a competition by a fraction of a point, he goes to a bar and ends up meeting and hooking up with Ryan Abbott. Ryan brings out things that Dante has long tried to suppress and it scares him. Ryan is scared too but for [...]

    10. Dante's use to being thrown and laid out flat by bulls, but Ryan is nothing like work.These two are hot together. Ryan is loving, strong and commanding enough to help Dante.Dante's struggle to accept what he wants with his idea of what a man, a bull rider is the challenge. The impact of public perception and sponsorship in the homophobic world of competitive rodeo has meant he's kept things quiet, but Ryan can read him loud and clear. This story seems to flip through the Gay Men's Horror Handboo [...]

    11. I confess I usually read Andrew Grey as occasional relief or change from the longer angstfests I most often enjoy. I find Grey light and fluffy; a good read at the beach or to curl up in bed with when I'm feeling under the weather. Nothing disparaging meant by that, as I have found his writing until now to be competent, with interesting characters and engaging story lines.I am not certain where this novel went wrong, at least for me. Out of the two main characters, I did like Dante, the bull rid [...]

    12. Dante Reese is a closeted bull rider who came just .02 point away from winning the national championship. He meets Ryan Abbott in a bar not far from where the championship took place. Ryan take control of the bedroom situation and Dante get spooks thinking that make him not a man much of the angst in this story is both men's belief that a real man doesn't need help or surrender control. sometimes I just wanted to slap them silly to get over themselves.

    13. Dante the Bull Rider who is used to always being in control of every situation. Ryan the numbers guy who has been trying to push back his need for being the one in charge. the bedroom.These two sure do know how to burn up the sheets or the barn as sometimes the case may be! The story was good but I felt that the characters were lacking a little something to make them stand out against all other characters. I still enjoyed them tho!

    14. 5 starsReview originally written for Joyfully Jay“He didn’t need me to push his limits. What he needed was someone else to be in control. So I deprived him of some of his senses and allowed him to just feel with the others. It was sensual, hot, and incredibly erotic.”And it was. This book, a new adventure by Andrew Grey, is incredibly sensual, hot, and erotic – at least the characters and the story of their relationship are. A Wild Ride has renewed my love for this author’s works. Not [...]

    15. I like to read something "light" between some serious literature - I also get periods when I want to read gay fiction. This book fitted the bill for this week.I was surprised at the quality of the writing! Normally, these things are so trashy, I just get really REALLY grumpy & make snarky comments.The cover is very misleading. For a start both men have hairy chests in the text.The story is very believable - rodeo riding leads itself to homoeroticism: muscular men doing outdoorsy stuff & [...]

    16. Hold onto your hat, I am about to make a bold statement. Sometimes, it is really niceextremely satisfying, just to read a well-written love story. No real angst, no real deep, underlying mystery that is seeming insurmountablejust a sweet and gentle love story that shows men with all their flaws.Welcome to A Wild Ride by Andrew Grey. The slow build of these two characters into a secure couple is simply delightful to watch. Yes, Dante struggles with the fact that he is a rugged, macho bull rider t [...]

    17. Dante, a Bull-rider in TX has they typical problems being gay but sort of DADT as far as his sponsor, fellows and fans go. After a frustrating ride for the championship he craves release and distraction and finds Ryan. Ryan has only gone to the rodeo to celebrate his friend's birthday. He's totally not a fan, but the intense, wound-up Dante appeals to his own deep needs. There's a bit of D/s thrown in, which is sexy, but also makes our bull-rider shy. I'm not usually a fan of cowboy themes, but [...]

    18. DNF @ 65%.If I'm going to be brutally honest, I'll say my enjoyment of this book ended about a third of the way through. I don't know if it was the bull riding--though considering I like to read about cowboys that seems unlikely--or the money worries that bored me but after the first sex scene and the subsequent meeting I just lost interest in it all. I wanted more of the attraction and relationship between the two main characters and I felt it was lacking in some parts. I felt the book concentr [...]

    19. 3.5 rounded up to 4 starsWhile I liked this book, I didn't love it. The writing was lovely, but I just struggled to get into it. That's not to say I wouldn't suggest giving it a go, because while it wasn't that awesome for me, you may thoroughly enjoy it.

    20. This book was a surprise. There were a lot of unexpected moments and interesting nuances throughout the story and subtle power shifts between the two MCs. This book had a "bdsm"tag, which always makes me leery I like fun, loving, dirty sex that is pleasure oriented. I have no desire to read about sex that incorporates pain, humiliation, mind games, power trips, manipulation, implements of punishment and dungeons. I recognize and respect that this is a personal choice between two consenting adult [...]

    21. Sweet, low angst cowboy love story. After Dante's loss in the championships, he hooks up with Ryan. Weeks later they meet again, and while sparks fly, Dante pushes him away. What follows is pretty predicatable, but there's some fun stuff and excellent side characters add a great third dimension to the storyline. (Probably what I like best about Mr. Grey's stories is the well developed side characters.) Although we get a great HEA, the ending felt weak to me - and I really mean the end, like the [...]

    22. A really nice book.There were some heat and some sweetness. Still I felt there was something missing. I just can’t figure out what. It’s just something
