The plot:

Lucy lost her mother when she was a baby and lost her father when she was 6 years old. She was raised by her grandmother. Because she has lost so much so early in her life, she is now a girl who needs control and security in her life. That's why, she has stupid rules and silly lists.

One of those lists is her Manlist, which is a checklist of 10 items. She needs all 10 of them in a man that she dates. She stupidly goes on blind dates, she stupidly asks her silly questions to the
Lucy makes lists, which is why she is on a blind date checking off her manlist to see if she has found a match. Thinking she has struck gold she finds herself in the arms of Police Officer Grayson after her blind date turns out to be a crook. Grayson gets his first glimpse of Lucy and he likes it. He is not a man who dates but with Lucy on his mind he is pursuing her, even though it frustrates him. Can Grayson convince Lucy he is worth taking a chance on?

This was laugh out loud funny. Sometimes

Ride With Me is such a sweet, sexy read! I fell a little (a lot) in love with Grayson and Lucy's story.

Lucy is the daughter of a cop who was killed on duty when she was a child. She's haunted by her father's loss, and has vowed to never date a police officer because of it. She's working on her graduate thesis project and is looking for a potential relationship. To that end, she has a Manlist written up that she will use to quiz dates to suss out their potential:

I am so in lust with Ashley Hastings and this story that I'm not sure I've totally recovered from it. I loved Lucy and Grayson. They chemistry between them was off the charts. I loved this story. It made me laugh, it made me sad, and it put me back together all at the same time. I loved everything about this book. I'm new to Ashley Hastings, but she is an amazing author.

This is my first book by this author (only her second) and I really enjoyed it. Grayson and Amy have a connection from the start and you could say an instalove type thing going on but they have to emotionally work for it. The cop aspect was really fun. The author did amazing with not glossing over it and it has to be one of my favorite cop reads because it was such a focal point in the story.

I laughed a lot while reading this book, but it always had parts that made tears fall and my heart speed

Ride with me is one of those reads that grabs you right from the prologue and doesn’t release you until the epilogue.

First book that I have read from this author and I thought it was a good read. It was a quick read and a good storyline that will keep you entertained and wanting more. The chemistry between Lucy and Grayson was so good. I mean who doesn’t love a hot cop. Loved that they were able to get the HEA they both deserved.

After reading back to back thrillers, I was eager to read something sweet and heartwarming, so I decided to go with Ride with Me. Ride With Me scored marvelously in both the departments, it was both sweet and heartwarming plus it was quite steamy which was an added bonus.

Both the main characters were good, especially Grayson. He was very caring not just to Lucy and people he helped during his duty but also to animals. Like Lucy I also love men who care about animals, so Grayson has definitely ma

My first Ashley Hastings book and it won't be the last I hope.

Not many books grab my attention from the get go, by the time I finished the prologue I knew i would have to finish. Something about this story piqued my interest, I didnt regret going for the Ride that Ashley set me on with this.

I found Lucy to be funny, relatable, quirky as hell and an easy character and story to fall into. Lucy and her need for lists and organisation in her life to avoid chaos and always have a plan for everything
Sissy's Romance Book Review
Ride With Me by Ashley Hastings is the story of Grayson and Lucy.
Lucy has a list of things she wants her future husband to have in personality after having failed with a previous relationship. While on a blind date she is finding that the man she is having diner with checks off all things on her list. Lucy feels things might be moving up for her in the relationship department until when they go to leave they end up in a high speed chase. It seems that her date wasn't a good person and Grayson

Ride With Me is the first book that I've read by this author, and I definitely enjoyed it. It was only Ashley Hastings' second book, so with the talent displayed, I cannot wait to see what she puts out. in the future. Lucy is a woman who loves her lists, except her manlist isn't quite getting the job done, after a date had gone terribly wrong, even though he ticked off a lot of her boxes. However, it did lead to her meeting Grayson, a hot cop, who she had crazy chemistry with. But there's one pr ...more

I absolutely loved this book!! There were so many laugh out loud moments that I could not help but fall in love with these two opposite but meant for each other characters. Lucy lived her life by her lists. There were lists for every aspect including falling in love. Unfortunately men were rarely able to pass her tests and show her what true love really is. That all changes when she does a ride along with Officer Grayson and finds that maybe she should forget the lists and follow her heart. Gray ...more

I found a gem in Ashley Hastings first book, His Wife and couldn't wait to devour this new story. Lucy is the daughter of a cop, killed in the line of action. Grayson is a cop, with his eyes set on Lucy. It doesn't surprise me that Lucy fights off this attraction with Grayson, due to fear, crippling fear of losing another person she loves dearly in the line of duty. But the heart wants what the heart wants and Lucy can't stop her heart from wanting Grayson.
In the end, you are left with a heart
♥️Fantasy Land  Book Reviewer♥️
For a newer author, this book is awesome. It has been a while since I have read a five-star story and this is one. It hit everything I needed. A wonderful alpha male, a great and cute female that didn't just fall into bed with him, a sweet story that I couldn't put down and secondary characters that backed the story up. I even laughed out loud at a lot of the book which is a great thing.

This is a great story that if you have time should be read. I was happy to have read this book for my honest

This is the first time reading this author. Lucy will be quite the character that is the first to snag you in this. She will also have you in stitches at times with the things that fly out of her mouth. When she crosses paths with Grayson then you are a goner not leaving this one except for air once in awhile. The amount of effort Grayson introduces is the right stuff for me. This author will take you on quite the ride if you allow with you liking every bit of the way. How the biggest obstacle i ...more

I really enjoyed this book. A cute plot idea is turned into something so much more by the addition of some heavy baggage and deep emotions. I liked Lucy and my heart hurt for her. I could understand where she was coming from. I've experienced that desperate need to have control and her longing for safety and security. Grayson is one of the good guys but he is one hundred percent bad boy. I loved how once he laid eyes on Lucy, his footloose and fancy free days were over and he was all in and the ...more

Rcvd an ARC at no cost to author. This is the first book that I have read from this author and thankfully she kept my interest thru out book. We have a hot cop who doesn't do commitments and we have a heroine that uses list to see if she is compatible with her dates to begin a commitment with. So in other words they are totally wrong for each other, but are they really? Well my friends you need to read to find out. Enjoy!

*voluntarily and honestly reviewed the ARC I received from IndieSage PR*

I actually liked this a lot more than I thought I would. It started off on a good, funny note. Lucy was easy to like with her humor and her Manlist. The list was a little ridiculous but I enjoyed Grayson showing her how much she really didn't need it, especially when he laughably reminded her about how some guys could seem so good on paper but not in real life. I'd say that's a good lesson for a reader if nothing else, hmm?

Grayson is a carefree young guy who wants to enjoy life but when Lucy comes in the picture his whole outlook changes. Lucy has had a rough past but when her and Grayson start spending time together, something clicks and those clicks turn into fireworks. This was a cute story with a steady pace that kept my attention.

When the happily ever after makes you say awwwwwwwwwww!!!
Lucy's first encounter with the gorgeous grey eye officer is when a bad date goes wrong.... Literally. She gets all tongue tied and pretty much puts her foot in her mouth that Grayson takes notice.
Fast forward to Lucy having to go for a ride along with the police department for her college thesis... Hello officer hotness!
I love the dynamic of these characters. Lucy has this innocence about her yet she is quirky and free at the same time.
I received this ARC book from author. My review is given to you completely voluntarily.

Ride With Me by Ashley Hastings. I gave this book 5 stars.
OMG!!! This is my 3rd book I have read by Miss Hastings, it was fanfreakingtastic. Once again she takes us to Peacock, Mississippi with each book she has outdone herself.
This story's about Grayson Jackson an officer in the Peacock police Dept. and Lucy Bennett whom is a college student studying to become a journalist. There is so much that happens in
