It took a hell of a lot of fast-talking and more than a few speeding tickets before Mitch Thompson convinced Constable Anna Coleman to take him for a ride. Only now that she’s loosened off her stiff RCMP uniform, it’s not nearly enough. Their secret sexual escapades are mind-blowing, but Mitch wants more than her body—he wants her heart.
Her world could go up in flames
It’s a dangerous road to walk, and Anna doesn’t know how far she can safely tread. Bad boy Mitch may have lured her wild side out to play, but giving in to their increasingly passionate desires could endanger her very civilized career. Somewhere between yearning and obsession there has to be a balance point.
Or they’re both going to get burned.
Mitch works with his family and is quite frankly seen as a bit of a bad boy. He's totally ripped, tattooed, pierced and a bit of a biker to boot! Oh yes, and he's in love with Anna who just happens to work in law enforcement! Oh Mitch isn't a total douche and knows which side of the law he wants to be on and he's realised that any side of Anna is okay by him!
Anna has always tried hard to be a good girl and just do what's expected from her but she has a naughty side. She's recently given in to her inner sex kitten and has been having clandestine meetings with the totally gorgeous Mitch. He helps her release her wild side but now he wants more. Anna can't quite believe that someone like Mitch would want to proclaim loud and proud to the world that she's his but he does and you know what? She's right on board with that, well sort of!
Anna has a job to do and there are too many who see Mitch as bad news so when things start to look bad for Mitch just where do Anna's loyalties really lie?
Rocky Ride starts with a very sexy scene and carries on in much the same way. It's quite a short read so I didn't feel there was a lot of time for true character development but Ms Arend does manage to give us a story as well as a romance. The plot is not the most original with prejudice and jealousy being the rift that rocks the boat but it's done with aplomb and did I mention it's very sexy? Lots of chemistry and this couple is quite adventurous! I enjoyed reading this short story and will certainly read more from Ms Arend.
