Author: Lori Foster
What I’m Talking About:
Slow Ride is the second book in the Road to Love series by Lori Foster. We first met the hero, Jack, in the first book, Driven to Distraction, as he is the brother and business partner to the hero of that title. While I enjoyed Driven to Distraction, I liked Slow Ride more.
The heroine this time around is Ronnie. She left home after finding out a big secret her mother had been keeping for years. Ronnie is a loner so when her employer wants to hire her a driver to help her pick up their purchases she is not happy about it.
Jack is the younger of Crews brother. He puts people at arm’s length as Ronnie does, but for different reasons and with his over the top politeness.
Both Ronnie and Jack are new to wanting someone for more than a one night stand. Jack handles the attraction a little better than Ronnie. She is running scared but with Jack’s patience, he slowly gets under her skin and earns her trust. The pair works as equals in finding out who is putting them in danger.
I find the premise of Lori Foster’s Road to Love series interesting and fresh. So far the male leads have been the brothers who have a driving service, they have worked with the female leads who work with wealthy men to obtain rare and often odd collectibles. I think it will be interesting to see what the third book will bring. I believe the female lead will be Charlotte, the office manager for the Crews brothers. She is like a little sister to them.
Slow Ride is an opposites attract, slow burn on the road to passion and a HEA, but often takes a quicker pace to danger. Slow Ride is full of romance and humor with just the right about of suspense.
My Rating: B Liked It — Recommend
About the Book:
You can’t put the brakes on love…
Ronnie Ashford needs a distraction. In the morning, she has to offer arrogant, conventional Jack Crews a job and convince him not to take it. She doesn’t need anyone’s help, thank you very much. But tonight is all about the tall, sexy stranger who just walked in the bar—and all the delicious trouble they could get into together. Too bad just as things are heating up between them, he whispers the three little words that destroy everything: “I’m Jack Crews.”
Jack is determined to connect with fiery Ronnie—in bed and out of it—but her terms are clear. If he takes the job, helping her acquire prized artifacts for her mysterious bosses, anything between them is strictly off-limits. Somehow he has to convince a woman who’s never felt like she belonged that she’s found her place—with him. And with the danger sparking hotter than the fire between them, it’s going to be one unforgettable trip…
