The long-awaited wedding of Keely McKay and Jack Donohue is finally over but now the newly married couple has to endure the longest wedding reception Keely’s ever attended…her own, and it’s making her cranky. But at least she finally has Jack as her husband. Her hunky man usually gives her everything she wants, including sex anyplace and anytime she what’s with putting her off now that they’re married?

Jack is crazy about Keely and wants their first time making love as man-and-wife to be as sweet and romantic as he can make it. So while insisting they wait until they arrive at their honeymoon destination seemed like a good idea, after hours of exhausting travel it only makes his new bride angry. That means if Jack wants to get back on Keely’s good side, he’d better find the perfect way to sweep his cowgirl wife off her feet and fast.

Slow Ride is a free short story and takes place between the epilogue of All Jacked Up and the second chapter of Cowgirls Don't Cry. This little piece is a definite follow up to characters previously introduced and the reader should at least be familiar with the book where Keely and Jack get together.

Overall, the story is fun and sexy and it’s filled with lots of wedding day high emotional drama. Keely is just as passionate and strong-willed as ever and Jack is determined to do what he thinks is right, even if it doesn’t turn out that way. In the space of a mere twenty pages, Ms. James uses her talented creative voice and taken two beloved characters, mixed in multiple McKay family members and come out on the other side with a wedding day story that tugs at the heartstrings. It’s a great addition to the Rough Rider family of books and I look forward to other releases in the series.
