When tragedy struck, the loss of Jordan and Wren’s shared lover ripped them apart.

Guilt and shame made it impossible for Agent Jordan Mikalski to look the love of his life in the eye. If he couldn’t face her, he sure as hell couldn’t live with her or make love to her or even be the man to comfort her in the depths of her grief.

Wren Asbery’s mourning threw her into a

Words cannot express just how much I absolutely loved Slow Ride. Since meeting Wren and Jordan in other books in this series, I couldn’t wait to read their story—find out just what happened between them for there to be so much animosity and anger and hurt. But I just wasn’t prepared for all the love that still simmered beneath the surface.

Love that never really died, even through horrific tragedy, through mind-numbing grief, Jordan and Wren still loved each other, even if they couldn’t be
***4 Stars***

After seeing the tension between Wren and Jordan in Wild Ride, I was totally looking forward to seeing how the rift between them would be mended and who would become the third in the poly-romance and I wasn’t disappointed. The emotional gut punches were balanced out with humor, a lot of heart and a bit of meddling/help from those who’d been there done that and wanted to see them get their HEA.

I really liked Wren, Jordan and Kason. All of them are really good people who are

Jayne Rylon's 'Slow Ride' was an emotional journey that I was not prepared for, and that I devoured, hungrily, as I got to experience Wren, Jordan, and Kason's story.
They say that love conquers all, but sometimes, what needs to be conquered can seem insurmountable. The obstacles that face Wren, Jordan, and Kason as they struggle to find out whether they can be what each of the others need was a beautiful and evocative experience, showcasing the depths of passion and understanding, as well as the

Another hot, emotional story from Jayne Rylon.

Slow Ride is book two in the Hot Rides series. While you probably can read it OK as a standalone, I highly recommend reading book one, Wild Ride, first. It contains background information that will enhance your enjoyment of Slow Ride. Having said that you should also know that Jayne gives you enough of the background in Slow Ride that you won't be lost if you don't read Wild Ride first.

The blurb for the book is accurate and we know from it that

I loved the Hot Rods series and the first two books in the Hot Rides series definitely do not disappoint. I do have to say that given the conversation at the end of the first book I was a little surprised at which two men were the lead characters, but it was a good surprise. I cannot wait for the next book now.
Wren thought she had everything her heart desired and then a tragedy struck, and her world was blown to pieces. The one person she thought she could lean on through it all was having a

Emotional and Hot. Ms. Rylon gets deep.

Slow Ride is a roller coaster ride of emotional. Learning to love in unconventional ways and finding happiness to have it stripped away in the blink of an eye. Wren and Jordan both suffered the same loss. Losing a loved one, a lover, had rocked the foundation of their world. The pain remained to great and Jordan and he chose to walk away. Jordan is strong and dominant, yet doesn’t believe he had the softness needed to nurture Wren the way he believes she

I thoroughly enjoyed meeting Jordan, Wren and Kason. Jordon and Wren have a history and Jordon doesn't come out well in it. He wasn't sure of his place and when their third and his best friend died, he couldn't handle the loss. Wren didn't handle it well either but she expected Jordan and had to push through alone. I love that in spite of Jordan's handled their loss Wren found a way to forgive him. Would they make the same mistakes with Kason? I love that Kason gave the appearance of acceptance ...more

Slow Ride is the second book in the Hot Rides series written by author Jayne Rylon. This steamy MMF story can easily be read as a standalone romance. The Hot Rides books are set in the Powertools and Hot Rods world, and it’s always fun to see some of the other characters from Jayne’s other series. If you are like me and enjoy knowing the backstories, I suggest reading Wild Ride, the first book in this series.

Slow Ride is the second book in the series Powertools: Hot Rides. This story is about Wren, Jordan, and Kason.

Wren is working at Hot Rides and is contending with the loss of both of her lovers - 1 to tragedy and the other, Jordan, to miscommunication and shared grief. Jordan is an ICE agent who is struggling to cope with the loss of a lover and his regret for pushing Wren away. Jason is a country rock singer who feels trapped by the image he is forced to portray to his fans.

Wow! Another wonderful addition to the ever growing family! Well a few, maybe, and soon to be some more! Jayne Rylon has me completely captivated by this motley crew of unlikely family/community. The love and support they all offer is amazing.

Through heart breaking loss so devastating it takes time and the love of good friends to come to a place of acceptance. Touching scenes that leave a reader gasping for the next sentence, imagining what it is like for the characters you are reading on the

Slow Ride is the second in the Hot Rides series. It can be read as a standalone, but characters from Powertools, Hot Rods and the first Hot Ride book are also in this book. If you are looking for a sweet, clean traditional couple romance, keep looking. If sexy alpha men, strong, capable women and polyamorous relationships appeal to you - this is the series you have been looking for.

The book opens with a tear jerker. Jordan and Wren are torn apart after the death of their lover, Johnny. They both

This is the second book in the series. This one for me is filled with a lot emotion. The beginning my heart just broke for the characters. I could feel their pain. There were many subtlety sweet moments that were a big impact for the characters. Example is the autographed backstage pass. It means so much for the characters to feel connected once again. It was beautiful watching Jordan, Wren, and Kason together. Wren finding the a peace that fills the hole she's had inside her. Kason and Jordan ...more

This is Book 2 in the Powertools: Hot Rides series. I do want to warn you right up front that this is a Ménage book and it has some awesome hot monkey sex happening between the pages. Now don’t say that you weren’t warned! We meet Wren and Jordan in Book 1. They were lovers but broke up due to a tragedy overseas when Johnny was killed. Jordan walked away and Wren was never the same. Now they are back in the same town together and Wren wants nothing to do with him. Country singer Kason Cox comes ...more

Slow Ride by Jayne Rylon had so so much that I loved in every single way.

Wren and Jordan have been through the biggest form of heartbreak that they aren't sure it's something they can get back from. When they lost Johnny, their lives were torn apart, and both of them could barely be around one another.

When Kason comes in the picture, he is living a life that he isn't sure he is truly happy in anymore, he wants to find his purpose again. When he rolls into the shop while Wren is working, the

Slow Ride begins with the painful back story for Wren, Johnny, and Jordan then leaps five years in time and picks up with Jordan still working as an ICE agent and Wren working at Hot Rides with Quinn, Derva and Trevon. Wren is starstruck when Kason Cox, Johnny's favourite singer, arrives at Hot Rides with one of his bikes wanting the crew to work their magic on the machine. Kason gives Wren several backstage passes and leaves the bike with the crew. Kason is drawn Wren and uses the pretence of ...more

Jayne certainly knows how to write a ménage story, I was glued to the pages!

Wren, Jordan and Kason come together after some trials and tribulations. Miscommunication kept Jordan away from Wren, after the death of their partner but after both meet Kason, they have the feeling that things can work out with him.

Kason though is not sure of what he wants or for those around him. Kason is a singer and in the spotlight and is afraid of what his fans will think of his wants.

Some books pull at your emotions in a beautiful, heart-wrenching, yet utterly fulfilling way and Slow Ride is one of those books. Wren and Jordan have a painful backstory, having lost one of their partners, Johnny. Neither was able to find their way through the pain and stay with each other. Five years later, they realize they are both in love with the same man and it becomes clear pretty quickly, these two are meant to be with each other, despite the pain and baggage from their pasts.

I have been looking forward to Wren and Jordan's story since the end of Wild Ride and I was not disappointed! The three main characters, Wren, Jordan, and Kason, are all very likable and have real chemistry but overcoming the hurts of the past will be challenging for Wren and Jordan, and convincing Kason to be true to himself might be near impossible. The writing is great and the story is emotional and touching. Devra, Trevon, and Quinn, among other others from the Hot Rides series make a ...more

I’d been anticipating reading Jordan and Wren’s story after their appearance in book 1 of this series and the author did not disappoint.

When tragedy strikes and takes away Jordan and Wren’s lover it looks like all is lost. Jordan doesn’t know how to deal with his emotions and doesn’t think he’s good enough for Wren on his own so he takes off and she can’t forgive him for it.
So when fate decides to keep throwing them together can they work it out on their own or will it take a new lover to finally bring them back together? And can Kason who’s a famous singer handle what he might have to give up to finally

I admit it, this book caught me completely off-guard with the feelings, with the sadness, and despair that rolled off the pages. I didn’t really read the blurb, my fault, but I think that turned out to be a wonderful thing. I got to experience everything with Wren and Jordan. The absolute overwhelming feeling of loss, and then transitioning into hope, and finally settling down with their happiness. Kason didn’t slouch either, with his confusion, his denial, his internal conflicts

I only put this book down 3 am when I finished it. The story of Wren and Jordan is heartbreaking. After the death of their partner Jordan is torn apart by guilt and Wren is destroyed after Jordan leaves without a word. Wren never looked at another man until Kason enters her life. He himself is struggling with finding himself. The strong attraction between Kason, Wren and Jason is undeniable. Risking his career Kason has to make a decision.

The tension was mounting in Wild Ride with Wren and Jordan. It comes to a head when Kason enters Hot Rides. What starts out as going to a country concert turns into a tough relationship, but one worth fighting for.

Wren and Jordan have a history.....a very passionate and love lost history. One that Jordan realized he made a massive mistake with. Now 5 years later they are fighting to get back together, but are they willing to add a third? Will Jordan admit what he has always wanted and will Wren

Jayne you are a master at story telling. I was drawn to this story because of the “tease” you gave in Wild Ride. I wanted more of Wren and Jordan’s story. It was heartbreaking. Kason is a music superstar and together the three of them are a hot couple. That scene in Trevon’s birthday party was a jaw-dropper (and a re-read a few times). There was hot chemistry, real emotions, great story telling. I love Wren’s heart wrenching speech to Kason and how she stood up for Jordan. The ending was ...more
