Logan doesn’t like to be jerked around, in business or pleasure. And when he learns what Mindy is up to, he’s rea

Mindy booked a week's holiday on a ranch in her hometown for one reason only: to convince Logan, a guy she went to school with, to sell the ranch mineral rights to her stepfather's company. She wants her stepfather to see that she is good at her job and he's not exactly giving her many other chances to prove herself. Logan is thrilled to have his childhood crush staying with them and the attraction he feels hasn't been dulled by the years they've spent apart. He's not happy when he finds out why ...more

Ride 'Em is a mix of cowboy and BDSM-quite the mix-and one I loved! I am not a huge fan of cowboys-yes I know-but this one grabbed me and I practically read it straight-through!

Logan bought his ranch from his grandparents and gave up his career to make the ranch into what it used to be. He wants guests to come and enjoy the ranch by experiencing the cowboy way of life.

Mindy comes home with a mission on her mind. She wants to talk to Logan about leasing the mineral rights to the ranch. His famil

Ride `Em brings together two of my favourite genres: Cowboys and BDSM. The story starts out with a modicum of mystery and intrigue when a home coming Queen returns to her roots with an ulterior motive. But the gangly boy, who once tutored her through high school, has grown into a virile hunk of a man that melts her panties with just one look.

I warmed to Logan’s character immediately, with his drive to turn the family ranch into a profitable venture and his determination to preserve the natural b

The sex scenes are mostly hardcore. A couple of scenes are described in detail and will make you wiggle in your seat. I was so jealous of Mindy, what I would do for some attention from Logan.

Ride ‘Em is good, well-paced read. I enjoyed the character dynamics and interaction with the other characters. I will read more from this author

Good enough that I bought the second one in the series. It was better than competent, but lacked the emotional punch I always hope for. Truthfully, the extraromantical parts (about the MC and her stepfather) were the most compelling.

Yikes. I keep remembering books I read & forgot to review. Ugh. I don't really need to do this to have them count for my challenge, which I already met...but wouldn't it be nice to begin the new year with a clean slate?

Logan moves back to his hometown to save the ranch where he grew up...Mindy returns for a week vacation at Dude Ranch and runs into geeky Logan..who isn't so geeky anymore!!!
Mindy has a motive to get the mineral right but Logan shows her how the ranch is his home and together they find a spicy way to save the ranch and the romance between them!

3.5 stars really, but I couldn't justify only leaving 3. So I rounded up.

I'm sick and wanted a sweet, formulaic romance that wasn't insipid. This totally fit the bill.

Ride 'Em is my first book that combines a cowboy and BDSM and I loved it!! It's also the first book I've read by Delphine Dryden and it won't be my last!

Logan purchased his grandparents ranch and he decided to give up his job to do this. He will once again, open it up for guest to experience the cowboy way of life.

Mindy is going home to hopefully talk Logan into leasing the mineral rights to his newly acquired property. His parents and grandparents weren't interested and he did know her in high

There were two things that initially drew my attention towards Ride 'Em, First of all, who can say no to that cover? Yum! Then, of course, there was the synopsis. A sexy rancher with a kinky side? A strong minded heroine that will only beg in the bedroom? Where do I sign up? What I didn't expect was to grin, laugh, and swoon throughout the whole book. I loved every moment of this story, from the author's witty writing to all of the lovable characters. As much as I loved Logan, Mindy, and the res ...more

Mindy just wants to prove herself to her stepfather Bud that she can get the land he had been after for a long time. She figures Logan owns the ranch now and being he used to be her math tutor and kind of nerdy it would be easy. Logan has always had the hots for Mindy she was homecoming queen so when she books a week at his ranch he isn't quite sure what to make of it. Logan needs money to pay the loan on this place but not to give up land for drilling and once someone told him who her stepfathe ...more

Yeehaw! I rode this story hard and was put up wet! As a central Texas gal, this book really strummed on my fantasies. I've never read a book that combined my two favorite fantasies - cowboys and kink! The author pulled this story off flawlessly and created a new genre in my book fantasies. The characters were well developed with palpable emotions and with real life struggles of everyday life and small town drama. You get to truly feel for Mindy and Logan as they waltz with their emotions and des ...more

I loved this. As a kinky redhead from Texas, I feel like Ms Dryden wrote this JUST FOR ME and I am so so grateful. The characters are a delight and so *real*; I kept screencapping excerpts to show friends. It's a cowboy novel with ZERO awful cowboy metaphors!

And the sex is so, so, so hot.

(This author does have a bit of a quirk that I've noticed, in that her characters can be oddly meta about kink, even during a scene. But this is such a minor quibble, and it's so delightful to read people who

I thought there was too much of the heroine's family drama. Boo hoo I don't want my stepfather to cause problems with my mother.

The romance between the hero and heroine was fun. I can't wait for the secondary characters to get a book. The hero's cousin, Chet, the sheriff, who was captain of the football team and debate team in high school, who is obsessed with law and order, seems like his book would be a hoot.

I want to be fair. The book is very well written, the characters are nice. Mindy and Logan have great chemistry and the plot,though simple is interesting so I couldn't rate it based on my personal feelings abut harcore BDSM. Mindy had pleasure through extreme pain, s give it low rating based on that so if you enjoy BDSM mixed with a great romance, go for it!

I received a copy by the publisher via NetGalley for an honest review

DNF @ 17%. Unfortunately, this book did not work for me. I picked this up over the span of several days, but I found the pacing very slow and the story just didn't hold my attention.

I received an advance copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for my review. No star rating since I did not finish.

I am so glad Ms. Dryden is writing again. This book is really good - it's got kink, love and a nice dose of humour. I laughed out loud a number of times. I'm looking forward to Ethan's story next.
