When Lexie Marshall places an ad for a cycling companion, she hopes to find someone friendly and fun to cross the TransAmerica Trail with. Instead, she gets Tom Geiger—a lean, sexy loner whose bad attitude threatens to spoil the adventure she’s spent years planning.
Roped into the cycling equivalent of a blind date by his sister, Tom doesn’t want to ride with a chatty, go-by-the-map kind of woman, and he certainly doesn’t want to want her. Too bad the sight of Lexie with a bike between her thighs really turns his crank.
Even Tom’s stubborn determination to keep Lexie at a distance can’t stop a kiss from leading to endless nights of hotter-than-hot sex. But when the wild ride ends, where will they go next?
I was recently lucky enough to chat with the author of Ride with Me, Ruthie Knox, in a Ask an Author Q&A in one of my goodreads groups. Prior to that I had never heard of her as an author, but after reading Along with the Ride, I hope that it won’t be the last time that I hear from her and read something about her. Almost immediately after picking up Ride with Me, I knew that it was gone to be one of those books that once you start reading, it is hard to put down. I was drawn into the antics of Tom and Lexxie as they biked across the country.
One of the things I love about Ride with Me, aside from the setting being a TransAm ride (which is just cool in itself) is that Lexxie was a kick-ass female who gave as good as she got. There seems to still be an excess of TSTL heroines in romance novels and it was good to not see a typical one ;) Reading about their adventures crossing the country, makes me want to drag my bike out of storage and start training for some long distance rides. Anyone want to join me? Maybe not on a TransAm, but maybe something short…lol!
I definately look forward to reading more by Ms Knox in the future and have already grabbed her other book that she currently has out. Can’t wait to see it ;)
