Review by Lynn Loper

This book isn't bad.

"Riding Heartbreak Road" has well-described, functional characters. The lead character, Jake Goodall, is a bull rider. He's stuck in the small time, hopes to win a championship someday, but that requires money, and wins, and sponsorships. And he's gay, and stuck in a small town that sounds like it might have an active mission of Westboro Baptist there; he can't even get a date if he wants to keep his head on his shoulders.

Not until rich young executive Brent Miller's Beamer breaks down in town, and he's stuck for three days waiting for a part. He walks into the local bar, and he and Jake walk out together. There's camping, sex, bull-riding, sex. There's gay-bashing, a long painful recovery, and then Brent buys Jake a ranch and it's all heaven from then on. The bad guys get what's coming to them, the lovers are publicly vindicated, and Jake gets his championship buckle.

It's romantic, it has enough exposition to make it interesting but not dull, and I learned a little about bull-riding. It's absolutely readable.

I found Riding Heartbreak road an extremely good read, from the moment I started it I couldnít stop reading. Although the genre of the book is something I normally donít read and a friend told I how good it was, I gave it a try and I am not regretful. This is an author that I will have no problems purchasing additional stories from.
