This is another free short story, although the PDF shows 28 pages the story itself is only 17 pages, offered by J.M. Snyder. It's the story of a sexy afternoon encounter between Mack and Brad. They are seemingly very different, Mack is close to 15 years older, a big leather wearing Harley rider and Brad is a cute flirt who rides a Kawasaki instead of a real motorcycle.

When Brad's usual flirting and teasing turn into a challenge that Mack can't turn down the guys head off on a ride that ends in a

This is my book so I won't review it.

Free short story (28 pages) centred around a flirtation between a cute boy on a Kawasaki and an older biker on a Harley. The younger man flirts, the older man eventually takes the bait, a bit of a bike 'chase' then ending with some sex-on-the-harley. Not bad for a really quick read.

This is a freebie you can get at All Romance Ebooks. Free is always good. Mack drives a Harley, typical biker dude but young Brad drives a Japanese bike and has been teasing Mack for weeks with suggestive comments. Finally he goads Mack into a "race" where Mack decides to see if Brad is ready to put his money where his mouth is. There is a some fun on a Harley in the country and then the question is was Brad just after a one-off or could there be more. So just a little short about teasing and fl ...more
Brad, a younger guy on a Kawasaki, and Mack, an older guy in leather on a Harley. Brad keeps flirting with Mack, and trying to goad him into a race. Mack is attracted to him, but is not sure if Brad is serious with his flirtations.

Brad finally succeeds in goading Mack into a race, which ends with (view spoiler).
Not sure what this was supposed to be. I thought it was going to be an erotic short. But the sex wasn't very explicit or raunchy or graphic. Basically it didn't have what you would expect from an erotic short.
It was ok but I wish the sex was better.

And who the Heck wear shiny red tight bicycle shorts on a motorcycle? Especially if that person is a guy?!

This is a little erotic short story among bikers which focuses much more on the foreplay than on the actual sex scene.
Other reviewers are disappointed by this, I am not.
That said, to make this story more deep and interesting, a little more attention to psychological transitions would have been needed. As it it the story is no more than nice.
Fun ride, hot, funny, cute gay romance.

This was a sexy little quickie about a Harley biker guy and a younger crotch rocket rider. The flirting and teasing is fun and the sex is hot. I had a hard time picturing Brad riding in bicycle shorts, but I enjoyed the rest of the story just fine.

Joy Ride was, well, a joy ride and joy to read. I am a huge JMS fan. Her dialogue flows so naturally between the characters that there is never a moment where I have felt it sounds contrived or not true to that specific person. I have read a lot of her books and have yet to be let down.

I expected something a little...grittier(?) from this; it could be the biker thing. It was just Meh for me, honestly. I didn't even really connect with the characters which isn't usually an issue for me, even with short reads. I dont see myself reading this again.

This was an interesting short story about a young man who is interested in a rough biker. There really wasn't a developed plot, just the young boy courting the older biker. It didn't take much for the biker to concede.

2.5 - 3 stars

Not a huge motorcycle fan and the race felt a little too long for me. It was a cute, well-written short story. Brad was a cute, flirty young man, and Mack was fairly well-drawn as well.

I give this 3 1/2 stars.

A hot little story. Two motocycle dudes, some teasing and a romp on a bike. A quick little enjoyable read that left you wanting more. hehehe
Really cute, sexy free short story about a young and older biker hooking up for some hot and wild sex on the bike. For a quickie this was really good, and the couple made me smile. 3.5 stars

Great story, tension, characters and banter. The sex though...where the hell was the rest of that scene after the build-up? I liked this read, nonetheless.

A racy romp with a great plot line and characters I could visualize. Already a re-read!

The banter was interesting, but this was essentially PWP.
A Short Story: A kind of boring, (for me at least) short story. The real fun is at the end of the bike race, were both motorcyclists come up winning on a Harley Davidson.
