If you’re looking for a HOT cowboy erotica series, then look no further than the Rough Riders by Lorelei James.  The best thing is to go into reading this book without expecting deep characters and wonderful storylines. This is an erotica book and it does VERY well in the sex department. However the characters and story in this book were a bit lacking for me.

I didn’t dislike any of them, they were just not the brightest bulbs in the box. Channing had left home and was just hanging around pro bullriders while on tour. Yeah, such a smart cookie that one. And she opens up the book by winning a wet t-shirt contest. Oh boy!

Colby was actually not too bad, considering. He’s one of the wild Mckays. He’s a pro bullrider, has always taken women as playthings and has always shared them with his traveling partners Trevor and Edgard.

Now throw in the fact that Colby might actually have feelings for Channing, Trevor is bisexual and half in love with Edgard, and Edgard is just in love with Trevor and doesn’t want any part of all that threesomeness, and we are dealing with a bit of a mess.

I didn’t think it was very smart that the reason why Colby wouldn’t want to be in a serious relationship with her was because his brother Cord had married a city girl that couldn’t deal with cowboy life after having a kid and they ended up divorced. So that’s a legit argument in my opinion specially after this girl has been following them because that’s what she wants.

So OK the Mckays are kinda cute and lovable, but annoying, close minded machos as well.

There is some m/m loving, so if you’re uncomfortable with that, just be warned, and know in this book it’s at a minimum. There is plenty of hot menage sex, but also some pretty hot and connected sex between Channing/Colby and Channing/Trevor.

However, keep reading, this is an excellent series, definitely a “panty changer“.
