Buckin' Bull Riders, Book One

Professional bull rider, Conner Raub has a secret. That’s why he wears a mask when he visits the BDSM club Decadence. He doesn’t want anyone to recognize him as it may ruin his career. He’s pretty sure the officials of the association he rides for wouldn’t understand his need to spank someone until their butt was red.

Jessica Talbot is new to the BDSM scene. In fact, she pretty much just goes into Decadence to watch to see what she might like. So far she hasn’t tried anything. When she sees a Dom stopping another Dom’s scene she also sees Conner Raub’s face. Now, there is someone she wouldn’t mind playing with! As Jessica works the same circuit as Conner, she’ll just have to see if she can get his attention.

Jessica does get Conner’s attention. On their first night together, she asks to be trained and is turned down flat. Can she convince Conner to change his mind? And, what about if someone finds out?

This is the first book in what appears to be a great series, or, at least I found this to be a great book.

It’s set in the rough world of bull riding. These guys are tough, no nonsense type of guys. While they only have to stay on a bull for 8 seconds, it takes a lot more conditioning to have the muscles to do it so they do work out. They also watch out for each other and have no problems closing ranks when someone comes after on of their own.

Conner is one of them and is well liked. He hangs around with a good friend who generally places higher than Conner. Conner also has a temper and it comes out so it’s a good thing his friend is usually around to keep him from killing some people!

Jessica is also well liked within the circuit. She works hard as the liaison between the stock contractors and the rodeo. Once the riders learn she’s with Conner, she has their protection too. So, who is causing her problems?

As you can tell, I found the characters really well written. They came alive and were made real. Secondary characters were introduced and with luck some of them will show up with their own books really soon.

The life of a bull rider was done well. They not only have to show up to ride but they have to travel a lot. Plus, there are things where they have to meet with their sponsors and fans. There is more to their lives than what happens on a bull. Injuries are also common and having to ride when hurt is not unusual.

This book intrigued me from the synopsis. I just had to read it. Once I started, it was impossible to put down. I fell in love with the characters. I couldn’t wait to see what next. Curled in my chair I found myself glued to my kindle until the book was finished only to find out that I was up way past when I normally go to bed. I just couldn’t put this story down.

The riders are hot. The sex is hot. Okay, just about everything is hot. Still, between on the hot sexual scenes there is so much more going on. There is someone who goes after Jessica’s job. There are feelings that Conner doesn’t want to recognize. There are friendships that are formed. Family is visited. Training happens. With so much going on, how could I possibly put this story down?

Now, that this book is finished, I can’t wait until the next to come out. I know which rider I’d like to see……

Professional bull rider Conner Raub hides a secret from the world. He’s a Dom. When he meets a submissive on tour who pulls at his Dom tendencies, he fights to deny his true self, believing his colleagues will condemn his lifestyle.

Jessica Talbot is new to the BDSM scene and the bull riding tour, but after seeing Conner come to the aid of a submissive being mistreated in a club, she sets out to have him for her own. After their first night together she asks him to train her to submit and he refuses, afraid to mix business with pleasure. But Jessica isn’t deterred. She’ll do whatever it takes to make him realize he can have it all—a career, true love, and the BDSM lifestyle he craves.
