I read this series in the past but am just finally getting around to listening to the audiobooks. I love AJ & Cord's story. It's a little bit sweet and a lot dirty. These two make sense and their chemistry is off the charts. I love the family dynamic in this series. Once you've finished one couples story they aren't just gone, they will be back in other books so you still get to see what is going on in their lives! I loved how bossy Cord was and mad the sexy scenes were very steamy!

The narration isn't great in my opinion. She is a good narrator but this is a series about cowboys, where are the accents? If she has added an accent I would have enjoyed the narration more more.

She Gotta Have Him!

Cord, the oldest of five brothers tries to make up for his years of absence and bad marriage by carrying the responsibility for the ranch and his family. Amy Jo, AJ has carried a torch for the much older cowboy since she was 5 years old and is now determined that he will be hers for keeps. Flames fly when these two embark on a secret sexual relationship. It's fun to see what happens when these two burn up the sheets.

If you're squeamish about raunchy sex, this book has plenty -- bondage with ropes, spanking, anal sex, group sex and dirty talking.

MY FAVORITE SO FAR!!!!

Love, love, LOVE this one! The McKay crew has me entranced! This is one that I'd put in my 'immediate re-listen" category.

Cord and AJs love story made me want to gush! This one gets back to the basics of good ole one on one loving, and I loved every minute of it. Cord is as tough as nails, but once sweet AJ breaks down his walls you will absolutely melt. This series is definitely heavily erotic, but I'm finding that the stories behind the sex are just as appealing. I loved it, and can't wait to indulge in the next one.

Smoke's coming out my ears This book is so HOT !

Any additional comments?

Our heroine Amy Jo Foster, or AJ, has been in love with Cord McKay since she’s been 5 years old. The problem is that Cord has always just thought of her as his little sisters best friend. So things weren't looking to good on the romance front for AJ. That’s when AJ makes up her mind to in a sense “play dirty” to get her man.

Cord McKay is a divorced rancher who is 13 years AJ’s senior. Add in the fact that Cord is still dealing with the fact that his ex-wife just picked-up, packed-up and walked out on him. Leaving him to be mom and dad to their infant son. As a result of his ex-wife, Cord has pretty much sworn off of women and love all together.

That is until AJ makes him an offer he can’t refuse. See AJ is innocent in so many ways and wants Cord to “educate” her specifically in the area of sex. Cord lays down the law in his domineering way and that is when Cord and AJ start setting the sheets, barn, truck and various other places on fire. Smoking HOT stuff !!

With all the INTENSE sexual action that takes place in this book there were a lot of light-hearted scenes to take the edge off as well. One of my favorite scenes is Liza’s Bachelorette party. I laughed out loud it was sooo funny.

Another thing that I really liked about this book was that there was a side story going on that builds up to the next book in the series. I really liked that aspect a lot. Can hardly wait to get my hands on Kade’s story!

If you aren't into REALLY INCREDIBLY HOT SEX (sometimes raunchy) and graphic language, then this book isn't for you. If you are into all of the above - Go for it, this book won't disappoint. :)

Love This Series

Book 3 of the Rough Riders series may be the best so far. It has strong and varied sexual content, as well as character development and emotional pull. A really well-done erotic romance.

Plot Summary:
Twenty-two year old AJ has been in love with 37 year old Cord since she was 5 years old. Though he feels too old for her and insists that their affair be secret with a finite end of six weeks (when his son Ky returns home), he can't resist the temptation. A sub plot is what is happening to Colt, Kade, Kane and Dag, the roommates of the Boar's Nest who are abusing sex, drugs and alcohol for various reasons. There are three POVs: AJ, Cord and Kade.

Pros:
The relationship building was really good and both characters grew for having been together. Cord learned to love again after his divorce, AJ learned to expect more from a relationship. The ending where Cord wooed AJ from a distance was particularly touching. This book was more emotional than most erotic romance and I felt more invested in the characters.

For erotic fantasy this had something for everyone. I liked that the H/h relationship employed mild Dom/sub and was more believable and progressive than a lot of erotic romance which shows the H/h doing everything imaginable. The harder core stuff with multiple partners and rear-door activity was reserved for the Boar's Nest characters. The sex scenes were plentiful but did not feel gratuitous as they advanced the H/h character and relationship development (he was teaching her about aspects of sex after all.) Particularly nicely done scenes include Cord dropping off papers to sign and AJ giving Cord a massage.

Cons:
The Cord, Colt, Cash, Carter, Colby, Channing, Carolyn and Ky, Keely, Kane, Kade names was confusing not only to the reader, but apparently also to the author as Colt is accidentally used for Cord on four occasions and clearly missed in proofreading. Obviously the naming is not an accident, but I'm not sure why James has made this choice. Most authors work hard to avoid this type of confusion and to make their stories easier to read by giving character different first letters.

Though I liked the dialog. in some longer exchanges it needed more attribution. I found myself not knowing who was saying what a few times.

This was a very good book.

Rebecca Estrella was fantastic with the delivery of the story

Great book!

I love this book. How Aj got what she wanted all her life and how some guys are hard headed at times that they miss out on something good. I like this so much I have the printed book as well.

True love can melt a hardened heart

This is one of my favorites in this series along with AJ & Cord’s story, which I love, there are so many teasers to future (& past) storylines; Skyler & Kade, Chassie & Trevor, India... Colt & Channing, Macie & Gemma becoming mommas. This whole series just sucks you in!

WOW!!!!!!

One helll of a book! Had me at go! I couldn't stop listening. The story line was amazing and the sex was on fire, I will definitely continue on in the series! I have so many audio books in my collection, and I have a feeling these will be the best. I have been looking a while to find a book that I could NOT put down, and this was it! Happy listening!
