Sunny Burke is the all-American life of the party. The golden boy everybody loves, a talented cowboy, and the man who warms my bed at night.

In rodeo circles, they call Kai Hunt ‘Frost’ because of his determination to win and his icy exterior. He’s never made it a secret he can’t stand his best friend’s girl. Aka, me.

Then the three of us got into a car and everything c

My heart!!!

I didn’t know just how much I would love Addie and Kai and man I was so unprepared for this level of attachment. I knew with the end of book one I was in for a wild ride but Elle has once again gone above and beyond. Sexy and sweet with smart yet painful social commentary about race relations (Shown in the states on the page but noted that its common place in Australia as well.) This was also an awesome conversation about grief and loss. It was such a good story that was intense emot

I'm going to make you all jealous now because I've already read this sexy cowboy story, and whoa mama, it's so good.

The hero... I'm not telling you who he is. You're going to have to wait to read it. Safe to say, he and Addie have THE MOST chemistry I've ever read. Seriously, I had to buy a new kindle because mine melted.

This is sexier and angstier than book one, Talk Dirty, Cowboy, but in the best way.

Jump in and buy a fan when you do. You'll need it.

I swear Elle's books just keep getting better and better! I have loved everything she has written from her Debut through to Ride Dirty Cowboy but this book is in the top spot with Only The Negatives.

After that cliffhanger ending of Book 1 that acted as a taster of what was to come for this book, I have been impatiently waiting to find out what happened. The book begins right back there in the mix of things and boy does it start off with all the feels and gets your heart racing. Ride Dirty Cowboy

I loved every bit of this story.

We meet Addie and Kai on the saddest day of their lives. Her boyfriend and his best friend, Sunny died in a car accident with Kai at the wheel. Kai blames himself, but it's really the fault of the other driver. Unbeknownst to Addie, Kai was at her beside day and night. She's under the false impression that he hates her, but it's the opposite and the guilt weighs heavily on his shoulders.

Addie receives a call to put her journalistic abilities to work. It's too soon

The second book in the Dirty Cowboy series by Elle Thorpe is even better than the first! Addie and Kai's story isn't as light-hearted as Paisley and Bowen's, but I loved Thorpe's grittier writing. She pulled on my heartstrings and made me cry, all the while making sure that hope never died for her characters. There's some serious drama in this story, and I think Thorpe excels at this sort of writing - though her natural sense of humor adds some much-needed levity to the novel.

A must-read for al

Book 2 in the Dirty Cowboy series and the first that I have read from this author. I really enjoyed it. Great characters and story line. Loved Addie and Kai. Can’t wait to read more from this author.

You know when you open an Elle Thorpe book you are in for a real treat. Let me tell you.. I was completely blown away. Kai and Addie were absolute perfection.

Ride Dirty, Cowboy starts right where Talk Dirty, Cowboy ends. In fact, I recommend reading that first if you haven’t already. I was instantly drawn in to the storyline with the most unforgettable characters. This book was emotionally beautiful, sexy, raw, and very real; I savored every chapter. This might be my favorite of the series

So I thought Elle’s cowboy’s in #1 were hot but she ups the hotness in this one. Ride Dirty, Cowboy is ohh so sexy and ohh so addictive. I could not put it down, I fell in love with both Kai and Addie. Actually, I loved them all, well not daddy Hunt; he needs to be stepped on by a bull.
I love Elle’s dirty cowboys and I can’t wait for more.

I love this book! The love that Kai and Addie have made my heart soar. The pair made me curious from book 1 in the series and watching them connect was angsty but beautiful. Kai is so swoon worthy. The obstacles the two overcome to get to their hea is bumpy but the end result is so worth it. Ride Dirty, Cowboy is sexy, angsty and all consuming. It will leave you in the feels. Kai can ride me dirty any day of the week. Those cowboys will make your heart flutter.

in the second book in Elle Thorpe's Dirty Cowboy series. The book can be read as a stand alone but the characters are introduced in the first book and carry over from there. Plus the first book is quality, so I recommend reading Talk Dirty, Cowboy if you haven't already.

Our two main characters start this book off by both having lost someone dear to them. When the two are forced into spending months together they have to fac

Kai Hunt is an American bull rider with the nickname of ‘Frost,’ who has been in Australia for the season. He acquires the name from his best friend, Sunny, and because he is so laser-focused on his craft. Sunny, also a bull rider, dies in a terrible car accident as the book begins, after a drunk driver hits them while Kai is driving. He feels a lot of guilt for the accident, as well as for his unexpressed feelings for Addie St. Clair, Sunny’s girlfriend. The accident injured Addie as w

I legit had a full blown, brain numbing, body draining, panty melting, breakdown reading this book. Elle Thorpe’s second book in her Dirty Cowboy Series has got to be my favorite book of 2020. “Ride Dirty, Cowboy” is an incredibly hot, sexy, and emotional read filled with swoony cowboy goodness.
Kai is a at the top of his game, set to take the bull riding world by storm. After a tragic accident takes his best friend’s life, Kai finds himself riddled with guilt for being the driver of the vehicle

Addie and Kai are beautiful and HOT together!!

I was so excited to get back to Elle Thorpe's hot, dirty talking cowboys, and she did not disappoint!!

Kai and Addie were together with his bestfriend, and her boyfriend, Sunny when he died and Addie was badly injured.

Addie was then invited by her paper to go to the US for the continuing rodeo season, and she was dreading it. Knowing Kai had always hated her, she was embarrassed to be seen using Sunny's death for forward momentum in her journalism car

I have been DYING for this book after the way Talk Dirty, Cowboy ended. I needed to know what happened. Kai and Addie’s story does not disappoint. The more books I read from Elle the more and more I fall in love with her writing, her characters and her stories. She isn’t afraid to shy away from tough topics and does such a great job of writing them.

Kai and Addie’s story was everything I could have hoped for and so much more. I loved the chemistry between the two of them from the very start. How

Warm, heartbreaking, rough, anger inducing, spirited, intriguing and quite the hot ride when you open the pages of this book. In the blink of an eye, their lives change forever and begin a journey that neither know what the end result will be. This book will play on your emotions and you move from loss, guilt, love, passion, hatred, confusion and forgiveness. You will experience the excitement of the rodeo along with the anxiety and fear.

Outstanding!!! This series started out with a bang and the author did not let up with Ride Dirty Cowboy. The book is very emotional and deals with such things as loss, anger, guilt, forgiveness, love and so much more. The storyline is very well written with raw emotional times that touch the heart. The characters are very well defined and I just fell in love with them more and more.

If you’ve read the synopsis, it gives you a very good premise of the storyline, so I won’t repeat it. But what it

I absolutely loved Bowen from book one in this series, but I think Kai Hunt gives him a run for his money in book two. There wasn't anything I didn't love about this book. The author took a sensitive topic - an interracial romance - and handled it so very well. Addie has long wondered why the best friend of the man she was dating hates her, but she couldn't be more wrong - Kai's in love with her and has been since the moment he laid eyes on her. Staying away from her was self-preservation, but w ...more

Holly hell what a steamy book Ride Dirty Cowboy was.

I absolutley loved Kai and Addies story.

It was sad at the start had me in tears but as it went on it got hot and steamy and just wow.

Kai was such a hot head at times but then so reserved aswell. He was in love with Addie from the moment he met her but she was his best mates girl. A terrible accident happened that caused Sunny the best friend to die and thats when Kai struggled to stay away from Addie.

Addie was a reporter for a magazine company

Ride Dirty, Cowboy is the second book in Elle Thorpe's Dirty Cowboy Series and this one is grittier, more dramatic and more angst ridden, as Kai and Addie take centre stage and face many hurdles in their quest for a happy ever after, including dealing with the death of Addie's boyfriend Sunny who also happened to be Kai's best friend. Not to mention the fact that Addie is of aboriginal heritage and deemed by some not to be a suitable girlfriend for a good white boy like Kai, and all of thes

I was lucky enough to receive an ARC of Ride Dirty, Cowboy and for that I’m very grateful. Release Date is 24/02/2020!

“Her hand still fit perfectly in mine, like it always had. Like it always would. I just needed to make sure she knew it.”

My gosh, this book broke my heart but also repaired it. There isn’t much I can say without giving away who the hero is in this book because that’s something you will want to find out on your own, Trust me!

Ever since reading Talk Dirty, Cowboy, I've been dying to get this in my hot little hands and it was everything I hoped it would be and more. Kai and Addie's story did not disappoint. Addie thinks Kai hates her and when they are thrown together to follow the rodeo circuit (Kai as a bull rider and Addie as a reporter,) she learns that's just not true. He's been keeping his feelings hidden for a while for several reasons and when all the truths and secrets are revealed, there's a chance he'll lose ...more

Ride Dirty, Cowboy is a story that gripped hold of my heart right from the start. Two people who have a connection that is soul deep. As guilt in every form tries to smother what Addie and Kai feel for each other, these two will need to hold on tighter than a bull rider does to succeed in a future. As old ways, small minds and ghosts linger to hinder their love, it will take a rodeo clown jumping in to give these to a fighting chance. Their story was emotional, original, heartfelt, passionate an ...more

This story started with a bang and just blossomed to such an unexpected good read. I loved Kai and Addie’s character total opposite but both was holding emotional baggage that will have you in an emotional state. I enjoyed how their character blossom to such great characters that you will be cheering for their HEA. This was my first read by the author and it did not disappoint. If your a fan of cowboy genre than this romance story is for you.

This book really hit a couple of awkward topics on the head. I felt for all the characters throughout this whirlwind that started as soon as you opened the book.

Falling for the woman of your dreams that couldn't be yours. And all the conflicts that go along with that.

An amazing couple brought out by an amazing author.

This is the 2nd book in the cowboy series & can be read as a stand alone though I'd recommend reading book 1 first. Addie & Kai had their differences in book 1 and it was interesting to see how they'd react to each other in this book. They definitely had some challenges they had to get past and in Kai's case as well, he had family issues he needed to deal with as well. My heart broke while reading this book but it was put back together by the end. ...more

This is the very first book I've had the pleasure of reading by Elle Thorpe and Oh my gosh this phenomenal.
I found myself rooting for Addie and Kai but there were moments that I wanted to smack one or the other on the back of the head.
Kai for his guilt over the accident that wasn't his fault and Addie for pushing Kai away for his own good.
I look forward to reading more books by Elle Thorpe.
