Peyton's Ride by Jennifer James with Excerpt & Review

Peyton's Ride Blurb
She's about to trade her treasured motorcycle in on a much wilder ride--Ian Coghlan.

Divorcee Peyton Reynolds is ready to escape the the judgement of a small town, bad memories of her failed marriage, and the grief of her mother's death. A month long, cross-country ride should do just the trick. One last check-up on her new cruiser has her tripping over her hormones while alone in the garage with the town's sexy bad boy, Ian Coghlan.

Tattooed, pierced, and able to shape-shift, Ian will give her the ride of her life.

Ian Coghlan knows he's nothing but disaster for a woman like Peyton. His place in the Wild Hunt and killer instincts have held him back from acting on a five-year attraction. When the curvy brunette responds to one tiny grin with a spark of interest, sockets fly out of the toolboxes and Peyton is knocked to the floor.

That month of solitude she wanted just disappeared, but the consolation prize is looking

With the magic of the Hunt in the air, Pixie pranks abound, and his old biker gang roars into the parking lot, dousing the heat in the garage with the cold dredges of mayhem. Peyton's life is on the line with his bad brothers' return to his world, and Ian has to decide if he can let her go or if he's willing risk her eternal hatred by changing her life forever.

Peyton’s Ride Excerpt:
“Yes. I’m sorry Peyton. But I want you to live.” He hauled her up tighter to him and cradled the back of her head in his hand. “I hope you forgive me.”

Tight bands of steel wrapped her chest, and she fought to gain a breath.

The soft, sensuous glide of a tongue inserted between her lips, and coaxed her into a response. He plunged deeper and bit her mouth. The crest of a wave broke open in her, and the sensations she’d experienced before when he’d changed shapes from horse to man centered in her being.

She clenched his hair in her hands and managed a deeper breath. Icy cold and wild, his scent permeated her nostrils and flowed into her lungs. The throb of his erection ground into her abdomen.

Her clit pulsed, and wetness slicked her pussy as urgent need overtook her. Never had she felt this kind of sexual craving. It burned and soothed, claimed common sense and destroyed it on fires of passion. A whimper tore from her throat, and she went limp.

“Figures…” Of course she’d finally get the guy naked, right before she passed out and was half dead. She was a total failure at cougar-ing.

My Review: 5 stars
I don't think that there's anything Jennifer has written that I didn't like. This one, though is a bit special to me because of the whole Fae and Wild Hunt aspect of it. I'm like Peyton, and have loved reading about all of the Fae and the Wild Hunt since I was a kid. Hot damn, Ian was freaking hot, even before I knew he was Fae - throw that on top and it's just more for me to love! I loved how this turned out, but I can't tell you what happens because I'm not sure how much I could say. What I can say is that Peyton had a desire for Ian for years. She didn't know it, but Ian had returned that desire but stayed away because of what he thought could happen to Peyton. That's as much as you're going to get out of me other than you have to read this. It's funny, and Jennifer weaves her own special magic to make this story her own, while still including enough of the old tales to give it authenticity. Peyton is great, she's a strong woman, with a quick intellect and great instincts. Ian is a dream come true for her, strong, muscular, tall and he makes her feel safe. I'll read anything that Jennifer comes out with because I know I'll never be disappointed, and it's always good and sexy.

About the Author--Jennifer James
For a girl whose first book was called “The Scariest Forest Ever,” the jump to romance may seem to be a far one. But a love of happy endings and the stories she kept making up in her head for strangers on the street lead to an unhealthy amount of time spent behind the keyboard typing away and giggling mischievously over sassy heroines,
sexy heroes, and healthy sprinklings of geek humor.

With time split between a day job staring at teeth, two little girls, college courses, workaholic husband, and too many voices in her head, Jennifer still finds time to sneak off and devour all the books she can find – even if it means hiding in the closet to read them.

She insists on her jokes being dirty, drinks spiked, and tattoos placed in intriguing, muscular places you can only find when the clothes come off.
