A Wild Ride

A Wild Ride  - Andrew  Grey Dante's use to being thrown and laid out flat by bulls, but Ryan is nothing like work.These two are hot together. Ryan is loving, strong and commanding enough to help Dante.Dante's struggle to accept what he wants with his idea of what a man, a bull rider is the challenge. The impact of public perception and sponsorship in the homophobic world of competitive rodeo has meant he's kept things quiet, but Ryan can read him loud and clear. This story seems to flip through the Gay Men's Horror Handbook and while I appreciate ugly realities it is A) Depressing as Hell and this book was not chipper to begin with and B) Feels really emotionally manipulative.A bit too much explaining about how a D/s relationship works which is good and fine if you're new to the genre, but I did only suffer eye strain once--managed to just read on through the other mentions. And that was do to the incredibly HAWT scenes between the two. Ryan takes Dante like a starving man at a buffet. Add in an one deliciously erotic shaving and a hand job and you have one happy reader. Dante's grandfather is one of the most touching secondary characters I've read in awhile.Favorite quote:There were so many things he wanted to say, and as the hug ended and his father moved away, Ryan opened his mouth to say them, but the stern expression he’d come to know so well slid back on his father’s face, and Ryan stopped, leaving more unsaid.
