Physical therapy assistant Lilly's job is to keep rodeo star Juss Rossie off his injured leg and from using his bad shoulder to rope more buckle bunnies. Trouble is she wants—just for once in her life—to be one of those rodeo gals who gets the cowboy. Pushing him to the limits of his therapy will take some creative maneuvering, and she finds he responds in the yummiest ways.
Juss hates like hell to be laid up with injuries and off the back of a bull. But being at the mercy of therapist Lilly is torture—especially when she gets in the pool, on the mat, or crawls into bed with him. Can he recover from her mind-blowing advances without losing his heart?

He's a frustrated bull-riding bad boy recuperating from a toss off Bushwhacker, one of the meanest bulls on the rodeo tour. She's a wholesome country girl and physical therapy assistant who wishes she had the courage to be as brazen as the buckle bunnies that lasso rodeo cowboys for a night of fun.
Lilly Hall couldn't help but secretly melt over handsome cowboy Juss Rossie, even if the irritating and demanding bull rider known as Slick Rider was one of the worst patients to ever grace the private rehab center where she worked. Despite yelling at the center's staff and pressing on the call button until he got his way, Lilly couldn't help but wish he'd spare a glance at a plain country girl like her.
But the steady stream of dolled up female visitors to the injured man's room meant he lived up to his womanizing reputation, and Lilly didn't want to join their ranks even if he noticed her long enough to give her a come-hither look. With such a beautiful specimen of manhood injured and laid up in room four, a girl could certainly fantasize about receiving a little attention from a certain bad boy, while remaining totally cool and professional towards said patient. After all, what's the harm in fantasizing about the impossible?
Cowboy Juss Rossie had ridden Bushwhacker numerous times, but he never planned on being thrown and winding up with a torn knee and busted shoulder. The pain from his surgery made him short-tempered and the long road to recovery left him mentally and physically frustrated. But there was something about therapy assistant Lilly Hall that grabbed his attention and soothed him, even if she was a little on the plain side and never dressed to entice or made up her face like the buckle bunnies that usually fulfilled his physical urges.
Maybe it was just a lack of sex that made Lilly seem so intriguing, or maybe it was her whiskey-colored hair, or just maybe it was the fact that, for once, he was at a physical disadvantage and Lilly had the upper hand, which was something no woman had ever had over a big, muscled cowboy like him. Just a short fling while he rehabilitated his body, then they'd go their separate ways. Yet the more he got to know Lilly, the more he longed to savor the taste of the woman he called Whiskey, and a few short weeks suddenly wasn't enough to curb the incessant cravings he had for her.
If you like contemporary cowboy romance infused with a bit of risk and a dash of naughty, SLICK RIDER will be sure to sinfully delight you. Em Petrova's realistic and likable bad boy hero and good girl heroine make the opposites attract storyline sizzle and, as the vulnerabilities and emotional attachments between these characters develop, the tone is set for a perfectly satisfying romance novella. When an author crafts a tale that you rush to finish, yet hate to have end, that author has done their job and done it well. With SLICK RIDER, Ms. Petrova excels and has left me very anxiously awaiting her next contribution to The Quick and the Hot series.
Warning: Contains several passionate sexual encounters made hotter due to the risk of getting caught!
