Too Hot to Ride – Andrews & Austin

Rating: 3 out of 5.
I have to say even after reading the book I’m not sure how I feel about it. It was my first by this pair of authors and whilst I enjoyed the storyline, and this kept me sticking with the book to the end, I’m not sure how I feel about the first person viewpoint, the lack of warning about a triggering event mid book or the fact I just wanted people to talk each other more in the book.

The book had a lot of potential, setting the book in Oklahoma and discussing the past and potential issues an out lesbian might have in trying to run a small business in the State was a great move. I also really liked the addition of the side story regarding the veterans and the impact working with horses had on them.

I know some people had issues with the large number of characters, but I actually didn’t mind this as I could find a valid reason for each of them being there.

Trust issues plague the book and I personally would have preferred this to be dealt with in a different way – but nevertheless as characters both Rae and Jane are interesting, the storyline was appealing and I learnt a lot about ranching that I wasn’t aware of.

I would recommend the book as the characters and storyline have many reasons to give it a go but it won’t be for everyone.

I received an e-ARC via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
