Sweet Ride (Playing For Keeps #3) by Cathryn Fox ~ #bookreview #novella #romance @entangledpub

Sweet Ride (Playing for Keeps #3)


A sexy category romance novella from Entangled's Brazen imprint...

He'll unlock her wildest fantasies...

Private investigator Curtis Jagger has always had a thing for Alix Harris. She was the darling of their high school—gorgeous, popular, class president...and, he suspects, just as naughty as she is nice. Now Jag has the opportunity to show her what she's missing. To show her that sometimes being bad can be sexy as hell...

Alix has always done what she's supposed to, and it's gotten her exactly nowhere. Determined to please herself—in every way possible—she accepts Jag's mysterious invitation to his ranch. In front of Jag's camera lens, Alix finds freedom far beyond her expectations. A freedom where she takes the reins and rides out every wicked desire.

But in one week, Alix will have to return to her real world where politics reign. A world that can’t include Jagger, or she’ll lose everything.

My Sweet Ride Review . . . 

It has been forever since I read a Cathryn Fox book, so when given the opportunity I jumped on it. Yes, this novella is part of a series but any of them can be read as a standalone.  I started with this one and am now working my way through them.  You can't go wrong with second chances with hunky cowboys.  This was a sexy, short, sweet read. 

Curtis 'Jag' Jagger and his friends have always wondered about what if with their past crushes or loves.  So why not find them and bring them to the ranch to live out one week of fantasies.  Each girl gets an invitation and anything can go once they arrive at the ranch.  

For Jag, he has always had a thing for Alix Harris.  Once he finds out that she's engaged he almost ends the pursuit.  But once he realizes that the relationship is pretty toxic, he reaches out since you never know unless you try. 

After receiving the invite Alix, wasn't sure if she was going to go, but once her life gets thrown in her face she runs to the ranch to escape.  At first she tries to stay away but she can't turn down Jag for long, as most would have that problem.  He's sweet, understanding, supportive, loyal, caring, and super sexy.  Once Alix gives in, she goes all the way . . . until the dreaded martyr moment. 

Thankfully Jag quickly puts an end to that nonsense and they give in to their potential HEA.  Since it was a novella, it didn't have a huge amount of full substance but it had enough to feel their connection and root for them.  It was sexy, sweet and quick. What a great combination.  It was also a reminder for me to read more from Cathryn Fox.
