Enjoy the Ride is the third book in the Winter Games series by Dr. Rebecca Sharp. It's a second chance sports romance between two soulmates broken apart by a single act of betrayal. Why would soulmates betray each other? Well, let's just say one of the characters felt the need to save the other from themselves by forcing their hand in a major life decision.


The result of this convoluted attempt at selflessness was two heartbroken individuals unable to move on and be truly happy in their life.

I Enjoyed My Ride with Chance Ryder!!

Sharp has once again produced an absolute Masterpiece. Enjoy the Ride has it All. It has the love, the turmoil, the angst, and of course the SnowmassHole. 

Chance Ryder, snowboarding god, must face the realities of losing his livelihood. When he is faced with a career ending injury he retreats into the darkness. Pushes everyone away. Sharp did a phenomenal job of portraying him in the alpha asshole light. I wanted to kiss him and smack him at the same time.

4 Stars

Finally managed to pop my Rebecca Sharp cherry!!! Enjoy the Ride was quite the book to be my first. A page turning second chance romance.

Chance Ryder Best Snowboarder in the US and madly in love with his girlfriend, Jessa. But in the blink of an eye, the love of his life was out of his life. Then the title he wore with pride was taken from him. How is a person to survive after losing the 2 best things in life?

3.5 stars
"Everywhere I looked there were reminders of him - the walking, talking, breathing, missing piece of my heart."

Enjoy the Ride is not a fairytale and is not about perfection. It's about falling and mistakes, about rising up and overcoming. It's about life and the people that you find along the ride. It's about two human beings falling in love as a boy and a girl taking on their second chance 8 years later.

Perhaps the most important thing to know about this Winter Games series is that it’s crazy addicting.

Like, even as I was working my way through Chance and Jessa’s story, I was already getting excited about the next one. The stories, at their core, are fascinating to me. They’re filled with drama, angst, and multi-layered characters whose layers I just want to keep peeling back.

Chance and Jessa were no exception. Loaded with drama, and a history full of heartbreak, the second chance between thes

Chance and Jessa's story might be my favorite in the series so far! And that's saying something because I totally swooned over Wyatt in book 1 and melted over alphahole Emmett in book 2. But, Chance...I don't know, Chance just has that something. He's like the best of both worlds! He has his alphahole moments. His need for revenge after being hurt. But, ultimately, it's his soft, gooey center that lets those plans fall apart. At the end of the day, he's still in love with Jessa, and that's his t ...more
I read this as a buddy read with my girlfriend. What ride this was!!!!

I had never read anything from Dr. Sharp, so I went into this one blind: not knowing her writing style or character development. I was pleasantly surprised! Of course, I’m a sucker for second chance romances.

Enjoy the ride was a HOT.....steamy HOT book! Chance was......WOWZER!!!!! Jessa was such a complex woman but Chance was her person and she needed him back in her life.

Emotions are everywhere! OMG!!!!! I’m seriously still on an emotional high right now! From beginning to end the love that Jessa and Chance shared has always been a fire storm!!the push and pull, their deep desires for one another and oh how fiercely they both loved just made this story such an amazing read! I couldn’t put the book down and the few times I did my mind was constantly on these two!

Let me start by saying that I hadn't read the previous two books so I was coming in blind. And, for most of the story it didn't really matter.
There were a few places I noted it would have been beneficial, however, it was easy to overlook as this story was absolutely amazing.

Can we please take a moment to appreciate that cover... yum!

From the beginning I could tell this was going to be a bumpy ride, full of anticipation and suspense. I was not disappointed.

The sport of Snowboarding was a very new and interesting backdrop for a romance novel for me, and I was intrigued by that along with the premise of this second chances enemies-to-lovers romance.

Parts of the story and characters reminded me of LJ Shen’s Sinners of saint series, and those books are totally my catnip. There were some discrepancies in the plot and the writing style, or it’s just me being nit picky, but that could be due to it being an ARC. The pace was a tad slow in places and I fel

This is my first story by Dr. Rebecca Sharp, and I am wondering where I have been!

Enjoy the Ride is part of the Winter Games series, however it can be read as a standalone.  

This is the story of Jessa and Chance.  High school sweethearts, everything was sunshine and snowflakes.  

For Jessa, I could feel her being overwhelmed by Chance's very being.  He was larger than life.  He was ruthless in his pursuit of her and she had plans and dreams of her own.

Chance was the definition of Pride.  He felt

This one will definitely take you on a ride.

I hadn’t read the previous books before this one, but luckily this can be read as a stand-alone.

The sexual chemistry was off the charts. It was a slow build up though. Which can work in some cases. Here, the slow burn wasn’t necessary.

It’s a longer read. More than what I thought originally so it took me a while to fully get into the story.

Im general it’s a great story, I love second chance romances. Especially when there’s a love/hate thing going o

This is the first book I've read that was written by Dr. Rebecca Sharp. Being book 3 in the Winter Games series, I can truly attest to the fact that it took nothing away from the story of Chance and Jessa by not having read the first two books in there series.
But what it did do is make me realize that I want to know what I've missed amongst this group of friends and family who have formed this tight knit group. And I absolutely can not wait to get Frost and Tammy's story. The subtleties in the

This is the third book in the Winter Games series but can be read as a standalone. This is the story of Jessa and Chance who were High school sweethearts.

It was a great read!! I didn't know about this series until I read this book and now I want to read all the others. Specially the next one coming because Frost and Tammy desperately need something to go right in their lives. 

This story is great because it has steamy moments, some issues to resolve and some fun included in it. When they were younger, Jessa and Chance were consumed by each other. And even when that is not a bad thing, they were to young and overwhelmed to know how to handle a futu

Wow! This book is HOT!! Chance and Jessa’s story should have steam coming off the pages.

Their journey back to each other after years apart is full of angst, self-loathing and recriminations. There’s also the undercurrent of a white hot attraction which threatens to spiral out of control. Can they ever face the truth and reconcile? Will the past always haunt them? So many questions!

This book is an example of what the author does best. The emotion is there on every page; so tangible, you feel it

Rebecca Sharp has done it again. Enjoy the Ride is as angsty, heartbreaking and steamy as the previous installments in the series. I could not put this book down. My heart went out for the characters. I rooted for them, almost cried for them, squealed and giggled when something cute or romantic happened. I just loved this book so much and would give it more than 5 stars if I could.

Enjoy the ride is the third book in the Winter Games series by Rebecca Sharp, but it can be read as a standalone.

I loved every second of this book. The story of Jessa and Chance is amazing and so wel written. I loved the story and I loved them together.

This was my first book by this author but it won't be my last. Can't wait to read the next one in this series.

This has been one of those books that I enjoyed from start to finish. Enjoy the Ride is book 3 in the Winter Games series, by Dr. Rebecca Sharp and is my favorite one yet!!! There is something about coming home again and life throwing that curve ball at you and making things right in the world again. But, things are not that easy for Chance and Jessa.

Full of revenge, love, and hot, angry passion. This story will wet your panties and your eyes, because Chance Ryder will take you for one hell of a ride.

High on drama and a fantastic second chance at love story on the cold slopes in Aspen. I quickly fell in love with the characters and the story carried me towards a finish I didnt expect.

Lots of twists and the character development is getting deeper and more involved with each book in this series, because this author doesn't just develop her mai
