Review: Slow Ride - Cathryn Fox

A sexy category romance novella from Entangled's Brazen imprint...
He's looking for love. She's looking for trouble...
As a successful doctor and weekend cowboy, Chase Cooper enjoys a full life with plenty of female company. But lately, something hasn't felt right. He's been distracted. Antsy. Damn it, he's been lonely. With an eye on settling down with a nice girl, Coop invites his high school best friend down to his ranch to see if maybe she's the one for him...
Instead, her twin sister shows up. The one who loathes him.
Julia Blair is already halfway to Coop's ranch when she learns the invitation wasn't for her, but her vivacious twin sister. She has two choices: slink back home, or see just how far this farce will go. One glance at hotter-than-sin Coop, and she knows she's playing a dangerously hot game. Because what this cowboy wants, this cowboy gets...

Rule one: Never date your best friend's sister.
I'm pretty sure this is the very first rule in every teenager boy's unwritten code. In Cooper's case, that was only one of the obstacles between him and his best friend's twin sister, Julia. First, Mari was his best friend. You just don't date your best friend's sister. Secondly, no one, including Julia, believed Mari and Cooper were just friends. And finally, he's not Julia's type. At least, that's what she told him. So disappointed, Cooper never approached Julia about his feelings. Ten years later when challenged by friends to find out “what if” with the one that got away, you would think he would approach Julia. Instead he invites Mari to his ranch. Not that he was disappointed when Julia showed up, but if she was only ever his friend, why would he even think she was the one that got away.

That was my only issue with this sweet, romantic read. Granted I believe Julia let Coop off the hook too easily, but then that's just me. I found Slow Ride to be an incredibly sweet and short read. I enjoyed reading as Julia came in to her own after so many years of living in her vivacious sister's shadow.

Fantastic read. A definite must read
