Ruthie Knox’s debut novel Ride With Me is a great example of how two very different people can come together and create the perfect couple. Tom is a hard-around-the- edges, anti-social, broody, bitter and disillusioned man. He’s been through the emotional ringer and he just wants to be left alone. Lexi is a highly organized (bordering on control freak) happy-go-lucky people person and ready to start an exciting new adventure. To put it simply, these two are each other’s worst nightmare. So what does Ms. Knox do? In a clever plot that is unique and fun the author puts these two together as partners on a cross country bike trip. A scenic, often comedic, but very grand adventure with two of the most refreshing protagonists I’ve read in a long time.

Ms. Knox is a great story teller and has a definite way with words. The repartee between her characters is spot on and quickly gives you an insight into who they are as well as their motivations and desires. The clever use of a cross-country cycling trip is used to perfection and gives the relationship between Lexi and Tom an entertaining and enjoyable foundation. Both Lexi and Tom are interesting and engaging characters with down to earth sensibilities and the chemistry between them is electric. Ride With Me is a contemporary romance with style, humor and great characters.
