Sometimes reading a fairy tale is just what I need. Getting my hands on one that plays out in the modern world is a treat, and Rayne’s Wild Ride fits the bill. The story is sweet, uncomplicated, and focuses on the mutual adoration and quickly developing love between two very different men.

Rayne looks like a rough guy, more of a biker than a lover, but he has a heart of gold. Even though there is lots of love in his life (from his siblings), he wants more. Loving and being loved by someone specia

Okay, so I wasn't going to review this book at all because of various reasons. However, I had a very pleasant and professional exchange with the author and my biggest concern was put to rest.

In any case, I was so excited to read this book. It's not often that a crossdressing main character is written, so if I find a book about a crossdresser it makes me happy.

The story is about Piper, a young man whose abusive father and alcoholic mother dicovers that he likes to dress in women's clothing. He'

Piper is one of those characters who you know is always happy. That is why the darkness he was feeling was especially staggering to him but he was able to bounce back with the help of a big, family loving teddy bear named Rayne. The couple is so perfect for each other. This was a nice, sweet story. I agree with other reviewers that the author tried to take on too many heavy issues in such a short story. The issue with Piper's brother was especially washed over and lowered my rating a bit. Howeve ...more

Ranyne and Piper meet on a bridge that Piper’s about to jump off of. Piper has reached the end, he’s a sweet young lad who just wants to be accepted for himself, frilly undies, wig, skirt and all. Rayne is a big gentle bear of a guy who wants to show Piper the love he’s never had. I found this a fun, quick read mainly because I took to Piper and his cross dressing kink. There were a lot of secondary characters who couldn’t really get their due because of the story’s brevity and the rest

Like others have expressed in reviews, I really liked the concept of this novel but for me, the light-hearted tone of the book didn't match the serious issues being covered. I also noticed a couple of continuity errors - which made me go back to check if I had missed something or if I had misread it - I hadn't. That said, I hope this author continues to hone her craft and finds a good editor, as I think she has something to offer. I'll certainly be watching out for more from her.
What a beautiful gorgeous cover. 5 stars!!!
Lets talk about the book shall we?

3.5 stars
Some people would like this story some others don't.
At the end, it really doesn't matter what everyone think, you will decide if this story was for you or not.
For me, it was sweet and lovely. The 2 main Characters were adorable.
If you expect drama, angst, action and I terrific story line won't find it here.
Although ... very enjoyable.

This was a sweet insta love/lust story.
I like cross dressing characters and this one was cute!
Now, that said, I did need to suspend disbelief for parts of the story, but I enjoyed Piper and Ray and would read more about them!

I loved the cover of this book and the overall message. Like a lot of other reviewers, my biggest issues with the story is that it went too fast, and it had very serious issues that weren't adequately addressed.

Rayne is riding his bike on a bridge when he comes across a lovely woman planning on jumping. Rayne is a wonderful character who is dependable and loving. He is one of my favorite parts of the story. When he finds out that Piper is a man in women's clothes, he is not phased and is still f

Piper is a 22-year-old man, he’s gay, and he likes dressing in woman’s clothes. When he’s discovered by his father he suffers a violent scene and gets thrown out. In a moment of emotional instability, Piper decides to end his misery by jumping off of a bridge. A biker passing by sees him and in his attempt to stop him asks for a kiss. Piper has never had a kiss and can’t resist the temptation of having at least one before he ends his life.

Ray can’t believe the lighting that strokes him by this w

Rayne works hard to to keep his family together in the home he and his siblings grew up in. Family is a huge part of Rayne’s life. He enjoys the closeness and craziness that is his life at home. He doesn’t necessarily enjoy working two jobs but the ride home on his motorcycle allows for the wind therapy to take his mind off of the serious side of life.

The family life at Piper’s home is quite different than that of Rayne’s. It is that difference that puts Piper on the path he is currently on. It

It’s a good idea to not read this looking for a serious story. Read it as a sweet little fantasy and you’ll be fine. There’s some stuff that should have been caught in editing, but overall the story is cute, if simple.

I have to admit I was pleasantly surprised by the protagonists. Based on some of the less favourable reviews I’d expected lack of reasonable behaviour and common sense. Yeah, things still are not exactly realistic, but both guys make more sense to me than I am used to from the sub-

OMG I loved this book. Rayne (Ray) is a sexy bad ass biker/bartender/construction worker who happens to be coming home from work one night to rescue a woman about to jump off a bridge to her death. Piper is a beautiful man who feels sexiest when he is wearing womens lingere and clothing. He is also a young man who has suffered abuse from his father until he feels there is nothing left for him to live for. Luckily for Piper, along comes Ray to save the day and in doing so they fall for one anothe ...more

Rayne meets Piper on the lowest day of his life. What follows is a wonderful story of Pip getting strong and Rayne being there to guide him. The two are there for each other during hard times and know how to help each other. This was my first story by Jambrea Jo Jones and I am eager to read more of her books! Loved this story and how it showed that it does get better.

This was a sweet short story. Go into it suspending your disbelief - it's not likely that a bisexual biker would end up stopping a cross dressing gay man from jumping off a bridge by asking for a kiss. However, if you can accept the premise, I think you'll enjoy this one.

The book reads like a fairy tale, complete with evil father, rescue and happily-ever-after.

That is such a sweet read, if you need a book to cheer you up, that is beautiful and optimistic then read it. I loved it!
And it's great that Piper is a crossdresser, you have that far too seldom in books!!

I really wanted to like this. But Rayne and Piper felt like cardboard characters, and the writing was a bit basic. And they moved from first meeting to commitment with little time together. I liked the idea, but it needed more depth and development.

I really love stories that have cross dressers in them, and this was a fun read. I do think that things were a bit too easy and light hearted for Piper once Rayne came into his life...just a bit too easy to be realistic. Still, a fun, sweet read.
Oct 24, 2011 rated it did not like it
Honestly, I really wanted to like this book. Good idea, good characters, but if I got told one more time what the characters were thinking, rather than being allowed to work out some of the obvious for myself, I was going to do damage to my ereader

The first scene could be better - the first kiss and all the kissing later. A little too fast. Feels like using the situation (even if it's not). Insta passion, attraction. There are some unrealistic actions. A little too fast, but overall enjoyable.

Writing looks good.
