      • D. Jackson Leigh

        D Jackson Leigh grew up barefoot and happy, swimming in farm ponds and riding rude ponies in rural south Georgia Her love of reading was nurtured early on by her grandmother, an English teacher who patiently taught her to work New York Times crossword puzzles in the daily paper, and by her mother who stretched the slim family budget to bring home grocery store copies of Trixie Belden mysteries and Bobbsey Twins adventures that Jackson would sit up all night reading.It was her passion for writing led her quite accidentally to a career in journalism and, ultimately, North Carolina where she lives with her small pack of three terror, uh, terriers.

    1. Another winner by D Jackson Leigh! It was nice to return to Cherokee Falls and all our "friends" there. Old favorites are back ( Skyler, Jess, Tory, Leah ) and new characters are introduced - the dashing and handsome Marc Ryder, the focus of this book. Bridgett LeRoy is our other "lead"; the beautiful artist you should remember from "Long Shot". It's difficult to write a review without giving away too many plot points but suffice to say this was a good and satisfying read. The characters are all [...]


    2. Twenty eight year old rodeo rider, Marc Ryder (Ryder to her friends) is fearless. She has no regard for her own safety at all. As long as she stays on the back of a hyped up, angry bull for the eight seconds it takes to win the rodeo, that’s really all that matters to her. Unfortunately for her, her downfall was a bull named Funeral Wagon and she was badly injured. She ends up back in Cherokee Falls for the first time in twelve years to stay with her friends Skyler and Tory to recuperate.Ryder [...]


    3. I love a good cowboy story. I grew up wanting to be one in the worst way and ended up coming pretty close, lol. The bronc riding, too-wild-for her-own-good Marc Ryder could have been an interesting character especially when injured. When striped of the one thing that was everything to her could have been a great jumping off point to explore her deeper self. I thought that was going to be THE central issue. In fairness, the book did lightly touch on that moment in one's life when the realization [...]


    4. This is definitely the best yet from D. Jackson Leigh. It moves along well and has several threads going at the same time. The characters are multi-dimensional and there's enough backstory provided for each one to make her actions understandable, though not always sympathetic. Marc reminds me of Shane on the 'L Word'.For me, the best part was the amount of detail about things I am unfamiliar with. The rodeo descriptions were so well done that I felt like I dlearned something about that unfathoma [...]


    5. Enjoyed that previous characters are back again in this story. They really are a family of friends. The rodeo descriptions are very detailed and accurate. Details and passion are front and center to this writers style. Not to mention details of passion, it has it's hot and steamy moments. The story also has some humor, at least it made me chuckle a few times.



    6. Marc Ryder rides the rodeo bulls in a mindless attempt to keep the adrenaline flowing. Between the rodeo and the women she leads a jet set life with nothing to tie her down. But when an ill–judged dismount leaves her leg in tatters and in need of recuperation she accepts an invitation to go ‘home’ for some R&R after 12 years away. There she finds that the world has moved on, her mad-cap friends have grown up, and once again the people she desperately wants to love and need her have lef [...]


    7. I started off rather disliking Marc. For many varied reasons. But it’s Bridgette who really pisses me off in this book. Talk about taking miscommunication to an extreme. She keeps herself bottled up tightly, leaving many to get the wrong impressions, etc. Including me, the reader.I said in the last book’s review that I saw Bridgette as cold in the first book she appeared in, and then realized I was wrong when I’d seen inside her head and saw how emotional she actually turned out to be. But [...]


    8. Actual score 3.75I haven't read any of the related books so am reviewing this 'cold' so to speak.I did find the cast of characters a little overwhelming at first but settled into it after a few chapters. I want to make a point of what PJ said in their review re this book being worth a read even if you don't really like horses. I fall into that category and agree that, whiles horse riding and relationship with horses is a strong theme through the book, it is written in a very accessible way.I fou [...]


    9. Really enjoyed this audiobook (though the performer rushed a bit too much). More thorough review to come.


    10. 3 1/2 Stars. This was good and I enjoyed it. But, I didn't realize this was the third in a series around the same characters. I wish I would have read Bareback and Longshot first as I think I would have enjoyed this even more. The author filled in parts of the backstory so it wasn't ruined for me, by any means. I was just missing that connection to the secondary characters I would of had if I read this in order. I've only read two books by Leigh, but have enjoyed them both and am looking forward [...]


    11. What a ride!From the beginning, this story grabbed me and kept my full attention to the end. I love Leigh's stories and look forward to each new book. This one, however, is my favorite. If you like horses, this is your book. If you love romance and hot, smoldering lovemaking, this is also your book.


    12. Well done! Enjoyable read with intriguing twists and characters you can truly care about. Nifty sex scenes--both quickies and more intense, smoldering ones. Ryder is a complex character--strong on the outside, vulnerable on the inside. Just enough surprises in this story to keep you on your toes.


    13. An interesting journey through the lives of 2 traumatized women, and their attempts at dealing with their own issues. Add some hot and steamy love scenes, and walla!! We have a winner.
