You can’t put the brakes on love…

Ronnie Ashford needs a distraction. In the morning, she has to offer arrogant, conventional Jack Crews a job and convince him not to take it. She doesn’t need anyone’s help, thank you very much. But tonight is all about the tall, sexy stranger who just walked in the bar—and all the delicious trouble they could get into together. Too bad

Sweet, sexy, and a bit suspenseful!
If there is one thing that comes to mind when I read a book from this author it is that Foster knows how to write passion and pour on the heat like no other!

From the very beginning of this book you get drool worthy descriptions of Jack that just beg to be read. With such detail and heat, you can just picture this man in all his glory!

I loved the perfect match up with Ronnie. She is tough on the outside, but a softie inside. Edgy and a bit of

Coffee Dates with Slow Ride

First Date: Ronnie Ashford hasn't led a blessed life, but she loves her job working for eccentric twins who collect oddities. After a scare during a purchase the twins want her to hire muscle and tomorrow morning she has an interview with Jack Crews. Tonight she just wants to get lost so she can get a good nights sleep, free from the nightmares that plague her. Jack and his brother own a transportation company but he has spent the day rehabbing his new homestead an
So far this series hasn't been a bit hit for me. Part of the reason if I find the jobs that they guys help on to be strange and creepy. I realize that people do collect odd things, but that someone would have such a collection to employ people full time is bizarre to me. That whole part of the story just turns me off.

I did like Ronnie, with her prickly exterior so wanting to belong some where, any where. With Jack and his family she found her place, although she fought it for a great while. But

Slow Ride is the second book in the Road to Love series but when the author says it is a standalone, it truly is. I did read book one and “know” some of the characters and I always enjoy that. SR is about Jack Crews, brother to Brodie from book one, and he is just as bada@@, but in a bit different way. Jack is more “refined” and “calm” than Brodie, at least on the surface, but in his own way is just as gorgeous and capable as Brodie. Usually he looks the GQ part but the first time he meets Ronni ...more

Strength and power are the underlying themes in Slow Ride. Jack uses his strength to protect; the bad guy uses his power to intimidate; and, Ronnie uses her strength and power to rise above her past and become a truly remarkable woman who has the talent and ability to save herself, but isn't afraid to accept help when it's offered.

Advanced Reader Copy (ARC) provided by the Author and Publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an fair and honest review.

There is just something about a formula book that you either love it or hate it. It's all personal preference. "Slow Ride" is exactly like Driven to Distraction, change a few names and some very minor details and you've got the same book. Not much to hold my interest, but definitely enough to tick me off. I'm only giving this one a point for the hot romance, Lori Foster can sur

Slow Ride is the new book in Lori Foster's Road to Love series. The character's are well written and the plot is simply brilliant. I have to say that this is one of my favorite new books written by Ms. Foster. If you are looking for a quick read that is simply page turning until the end then this is the one for you

Let's start with the easy part: Jack and his family.
Jack was an amazing-loyal-strong-lovable character. There was nothing not to love about him. I adore his brother and I believe the rest of the family added a wonderful personal touch to the story. They were needed characters.

All in all I liked the story-line, I loved Jack and his family, and I loved Ronnie's eccentric employees... Did I like Ronnie though? I am not sure. She started of nasty and didn't entirely redeem herself. I understand the

Slow Ride sucks you in a keeps you turning the pages! After the second chapter I was hooked, I could not put this book down.
The chemistry between Jack & Ronnie is off the charts, I love the bickering and snark, it's all part of the buildup to a great ending.
Ronnie is strong, independent and endearing.
Jack is protective, a little over the top at times and has to learn how to handle Ronnie so he doesn't tick her off!
I loved their story and can't wait for the next one.

I am loving this series! Slow Ride is the 2nd book in Lori’s Road to Love series, it is a stand-alone but characters from the 1st book and beloved Howler the dog, make an appearance. I love Jack! He’s hot and so are the love scenes! He’s big and strong but more refined, silent yet very aware. He and Ronnie hit it off from the start making their road to love at a pace to be believable. Working together gives them more time to learn each other and when unknown danger arises, they realize they must ...more

Foster did it again. Another great book. Loved this wonderful story. Great characters. Loved this book.

Veronica (aka Ronnie) has no desire to take on a partner for her transporting jobs. She’s capable of taking care of herself and someone else would just hinder her or get in her way. The last thing she expected was to have the hots for the guy she was hoping would decline her job offer.

Jack was such a fun character! He could be sweet, charming, tough, and protective at the spin of a page, keeping me guessing at how he would respond to Ronnie’s reactions. I liked how he took his time to build trus

This is an awesome story, typical Lori Foster stories. Suspenseful. Review has a little spoiler alert 🚨. But doesn’t ruin story at all.

Jack and Ronnie, wow this story truly pull on your heart strings. Love, Broken families,new love for friends and family, and heartbreak for the family you lost.

This was another fun and sexy romp through this chemistry driven story. Ronnie acquires antiques for her employer and they have determined she needs to hire Jack Crews as a driver and bodyguard and she is not happy about it and she is just as determined he is not going to take the job. Especially since she has a strict policy to not mix work and pleasure and the night before she is to meet up with her new bodyguard she decides to get out and work off some frustration with the gorgeous man who wa ...more

Love Lori Foster, this book & series! You will thoroughly enjoy Jack & Ronnie’s (Veronica) story that includes the same wonderful characters from Driven To Distraction & introduces some new characters. If you’re an animal lover like myself you will also love the rescue animals (Brodie’s dog Howler, the addition of Peanut the kitten & Buster the puppy) in the book! We all deserve a Jack or Brodie in our lives but they’ll have to be book boyfriends! Looking forward to Charlotte’s story next & I hi ...more

I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review. I was excited to dig into the next book in this series. Veronica "Ronnie" Ashford was here to meet this driver, get him to decline the job and get back to work. Meeting Jack Crews was not in her plan nor was the chemistry she found between them. Ronnie was used to being along and refused to be dependent on anyone that is until Jack Crews walked into her life. Slowly Jack shows Ronnie that not only can he be trusted but his family can as well. W ...more

*I received a free copy of [title] from [publisher] via Netgalley. This has in no way influenced my voluntary review, which is honest and unbiased *Slow Ride was a very nice slow romance, and I really appreciated that. Both because Ronnie had been through so much she didn't believe in love anymore, and because Jack was so patient. He just knew waiting was going to be worth it!
Robin Loves Reading
Ronnie Ashford is hiding a lot of pain and has trouble sleeping. She walks into a bar one night with the intent of seducing someone. History has proved to her that this helps her to escape her demons. She finds the perfect candidate and things seem like a go until she hears someone call out his name. It is Jack Crews and Ronnie is in town to utilize the services of his transport company. She only wanted one night, and if she would be working with him, then that certainly could not happen.

This is Ronnie and Jack's story. Ronnie’s bosses want to hire Jack and have sent Ronnie to get him to sign the contract. There have been weird things happening an they want to protect her and the items they are acquiring.

Love Lori Foster! Jack is the calm and polite brother of Mustang Transport Courier Service. Jack is a HOT alpha male who is protective of those he cares about and can be a total bad ass when the situation calls for it. Ronnie is sent to town by her employers to hire Jack as her driver when she is sent to purchase items for their collection. Ronnie knows the only person she can trust is herself, so she planned to offer the job to Jack and convince him not to take it. The chemistry between Jack an ...more

Thank you to NetGalley, Harlequin and HQN Books for providing an advance copy of Slow Ride by Lori Foster in exchange for an honest review. This is the 2nd book in Foster’s, Road to Love series and just as exciting, scintillating, and filled with action-packed romance.

Ronnie Ashford is determined to do it all by herself. She retrieves the oddities her employers want to collect, and she thinks she does not need a man to take care of her. Her employers insist that they want to hire a driver for her. Her goal in life is to get Jack to turn down the work. But Jack is determined to get her to trust him, to care for him, in spite of (or because of?) her prickly attitude. Gradually she softens towards him and they are able to work as a team.

"Slow Ride" (Road to Love Book 2) by Lori Foster is a terrific read. This is a great follow up to "Driven to Distraction". I loved Jack and Ronnie's story. This is a fantastic addition to this series, packed with action, romance, passion, entertaining characters, humor, family, and more. I enjoyed getting to catch up with Brodie, Mary, Howler, Ros, and Charlotte. I'm anxious to read what happens next in the series in Charlotte's story! Highly recommend to all fans of romance, action, and series.

The second story in the Road to Love series and it is was a fantastic read as are all the books by Lori Foster. She has been one of my 3 auto buy authors since I first read one of her books.

Action, suspense, steamy chemistry, genuine romance… Jack, Ronnie and the kitten. *sigh* Give yourself the gift of escaping into a world so cleverly spun, you’ll wish you lived there. I know I do!

I really enjoyed this story. I didn't like Ronnie at first but she grew on my and they were a cute couple. Though my favorite character was Howler!! He was adorable and this book showed it even more than Brodies. I can't wait to get Charlottes story especially now that I know who she ends up with!! I received an ARC from NetGalley, and this is my honest review.

I enjoyed this story very much! The chemistry between Ronnie and Jack jumps right off the page and smacks you upside the a good way. Normally my reviews are much longer and I tend to gush. I decided that I would do this one shorter so the reader gets a few surprises.
I highly recommend this book.
