I have to admit that I am terrible about reading blurbs, especially when it comes to authors I am familiar with and that I like to read. So, when I heard the title Rough Riding Daddies, I expected a menage. Guess what? It’s not. Instead, it’s a story of two couples and how they are intertwined with each other and how life changes. While I would’ve been perfectly happy with a menage story, I’m happier that the story went the way that it did.
Honey and Lennox are one couple. They are in a 24/7 DD/lg relationship. And they are very happy. Lennox is a rancher and a former rodeo rider. Honey is just about to graduate college. She’s been really, really stressed, so Lennox is keeping a secret from her. They have a couple who are friends, who are also in a DD/lg relationship, Joy and Garrett. Joy helped to mentor Honey when she and Lennox were first getting into their relationship and as Honey was figuring out who she was when it came to submission. She and Joy are now BFFs. But, now Joy and Garrett have broken up, and have been for about 3 months. Lennox has known about it, but he hasn’t told Honey because her last semester has been really hard on her. He figured that he’d have time to warn her before her graduation ceremony, but sadly, that didn’t happen. What even Lennox didn’t know is that Garrett has a new girlfriend and a new babygirl.
Garrett has brought his new babygirl, Amy, to the graduation. He had no clue that Lennox hadn’t told Honey or that Joy hadn’t been in touch with her, so that she had no idea that the relationship had ended. But Garrett didn’t warn Lennox that he’d be bringing Amy, so when Honey runs up to them and only sees Amy from the back, she grabs her and calls her Joy. Oops.
As you probably can guess, Honey wasn’t a happy little girl over what was happening. And she had absolutely no problems with letting anyone know about it either. Which of course, isn’t ever a good thing.
Like I said early, this book is really about both couples and how they are entwined together. Lennox and Garrett are best friends and knew each other from the competitive rodeo circle. Lennox and Joy are responsible for introducing Honey and Garrett. Joy mentored Honey and they became good friends. See, totally entwined. But when you pull one part of that equation out and add in a new factor, things get wonky. It can be hard to cope when your support system changes and the things that you thought you knew change.
But that’s not all that this story is about. It’s also about the fear of change and how to handle that change. It’s about finding your happy and fighting for your happy. It’s also about trying to find where you belong. I know that sounds like a whole lot of stuff to be wrapped up in one book about a pair of hot Daddies, but it’s all there. And it’s all wrapped up in a good story that you can really enjoy.
OK, frankly I think that Joy isn’t all that nice a person. I can see where Honey might’ve become good friends with her, but since then, I just don’t think she’s all that.
That’s all I have to say today. Go read the book! Happy reading!
