“I would do just about anything to be on the back of that bike when she leaves this place.”

Trapped in a small town life, Mary-Beth always knew there was something better out there. Then Jo rides into town and walks straight into the diner where she works. Sexy, dominant, and self-assured, Jo is everything Mary-Beth wishes she could be. Their hot, intense meeting crashes through Mary-Beth’s small world and offers her the promise of a new start.

Will Mary-Beth leave everything behind and ride with Jo towards the chance of a new life?

Some people are perfectly content to spend their entire lives in a quiet, small town. Is Mary-Beth one of them?

This story included a lot of detailed descriptions. Many of them involved sex, of course, but I was almost equally intrigued by how the narrator took the time to look at the little things in Mary-Beth’s life that most people overlook. Spending so much time on how a room was arranged or what her daily routine was like at the diner made it easy to for me to imagine stepping into this character’s shoes.

It would have been nice to have much more information about Mary-Beth and Jo’s personalities. I never felt like I got to know either one of them well as an individual. Are they outgoing? Can they find the humor in everything in life? Do other people think they’re unusually kind and considerate? Knowing the answers to questions like these would have helped me figure out what these characters are like. This would have been especially helpful information to have once their whirlwind romance began.

The chemistry between Jo and Mary-Beth was nicely done. The scenes that included both of them together did give me a few clues about what their personalities were like which I really appreciated. They seemed to complement each other nicely, especially in the bedroom. I really liked seeing exactly how they got along, and I was glad that the author spent so much time showing this to the audience.

Let’s Ride is a good choice for anyone who has ever wondered what it would be like to meet an exciting stranger on an ordinary day.
