A woman running from her past runs head-long into the two men who are her future.
Three to Ride is the first book in the Nights in Bliss, Colorado series. The book offers a well-rounded plot, two sexy men going after their woman who's as skittish as a colt, and steaming hot loves scenes. Set in the quirky town of Bliss, Colorado where the people are as unusual as they are accepting and caring of one another, and you've got a fantastic start to a sexy new series by Sophie Oak.
Rachel Swift is running. She's trying to escape from a dangerous stalker who'd rather see her dead than have her reject him. She lands in Bliss, Colorado and falls in love with the people and the town; and if she just happens to be extremely attracted to horse trainer, Max Harper, so much the better. But when she finds outs he has an identical twin, Rye, who is the town sheriff, things may get interesting. After her past comes to find her again, she will have to decide whether to keep running or fight to stay with the men and the town she's come to love.
Twins Max and Rye Harper have always thought that they will find one woman to love and start a family with, but life hasn't worked out that way. Max feels like he always messes up the relationships for his brother, so he decides that they will no longer share women. But when they both fall for the strong and sassy Rachel Swift, putting aside their natures is harder than they ever imagine.
This book was so wonderful. The plot had a good amount of suspense and intrigue to it. And although it was erotic, it had an actual plot!
Rachel was smart and strong and the perfect woman to handle the two sexy men who want to claim her. The love scenes were steamy and erotic. There was a bit of comedy when Rye was trying to deny the fact that he wanted Rachel as well. The phrase "you're going to go blind from that" immediately comes to mind. But ultimately they come together, and it is as if things are just as they should be.
The story comes to a head when the stalker from Rachel's past comes to town to hurt Rachel and her men. One of the best things about the book was the hilarious secondary characters in the town. You've got your nudists, who prefer to be called naturists; Mel, the conspiracy theorist; Stefan, the famous artist and Dom-in-residence; the Kent brothers, the sexy cowboys who also like to share and breeze into town with their sights set on Rachel; and the list goes on. They made the story more interesting and much more three-dimensional. It was such an excellent beginning to this series, I can't wait to see whose story will come next!
