Title: A Wild Ride
Series: Thompson and Sons bk 4
Author: Vivian Arend
He’s the golden boy with a secret past
When Nicole Adams abruptly cancels their secret fling, Troy Thompson is stunned. The sex between them is sizzling, but she’s ready to move on—find a reliable guy, settle down, pop out a few babies. The thought of Nic in another man’s arms is maddening. And while her agenda freaks him out, Troy knows there’s no one in town nearly good enough for her. No one, that is, except him.
She’s his redemption and his future
Nicole doesn’t regret her sexual romp with Troy, but when he insists on taking the next step with her—marriage and parenthood—she figures he’s out of his mind. Troy? Husband and daddy material? Oh, he’s sexy beyond belief, with the ability to melt her panties with a single command, but the man’s not known for being responsible. Trying for forever with Mr. Frivolous? Everyone thinks it’s a fool’s game.
Everyone except Troy, who’s determined to make Nicole see the real him under the shiny exterior.
Thoughts: It’s been a long time since I’ve enjoyed one of Arend’s books as much as I enjoyed this one. That’s not to say that I’ve not liked all of her books, but I haven’t gone back and re-read one right after I finished in a long time. I will admit that upon finishing this book I immediately went and started reading the Six Pack Ranch series again.
Of all the Thompson’s Troy story is the one that tugged at every single one of my heartstrings. I mean how can you not fall in love with this guy, and the way that people, including his own family thought about him had me crying. Not as much as a scene with Nicole sisters but enough to make me want to reach in and shake them all.
Nicole was a great heroine. She totally got Troy and didn’t try and change him, she simply accepted him for who he was.
Because this is an Arend book there was lots of family drama…okay not as much as in other books but its still there. Then of course there was all the hijinks that happened between Troy and Nicole in the beginning which I’m not going to lie was awesome.
If you’re a fan of Arend’s then you won’t want to miss out on this book as it became one of my favorites.
