    One thought on “Learning to Ride”

    1. Reviewed for herding cats & burning soup.: amzn/1UPaafQThe tagline for the Bookshots Flames line from James Patterson is "Novels you can devour in a few hours. And possible to stop reading" and damn if that wasn't true. A cowboy, a city girl, a sleepy little town and unstoppable attractionLearning to Ride pulled me in and wouldn't let go. The quick of it is that Madeline's come to a small town in Texas to manage a merger for her company. She plans on sticking around for a year, not get attac [...]

    2. I loved this book!It's a feel good romance. It reminds me of why I fell in love reading romance. Madeline is a hard worker and wants nothing more than to climb the corporate ladder, and now she has the perfect opportunity to do so, and do it well. Only, she has to move from New York to Sunnybell, Texas. That's asking a lot of her, but she can do it. After all, if her calculations are right her stay will last no more than two years top. After a few days of being holed up in a motel, she misses th [...]

    3. I still prefer her HRs but for a short story it was nice enough. I'll take a cowboy meets city girl story over another rockstar in hiding romance anytime lol

    4. 3 starsI thought this was an uninspired read. I didn't care overly much for Madeline, and because of the abbreviated nature of the book, don't feel like I really got to know Tanner. The romance was rushed, but it had to be to fit into 144 pages. I did enjoy the small town setting, and while the ending was not convincing, all the loose ends were tied up in a neat little bow. Madeline found a new calling instead of her soulless corporate position, and Tanner finally trusted someone enough to make [...]

    5. 3.5*A sweet little romance of opposites attract- the cowboy and the businesswoman. This book only took me 2 hours to read, but it was pretty well fleshed-out, with engaging characters and a fun storyline. Learning to Ride is a great read when you just need a bit of happy in your life.I'm really loving these BookShots, brilliant idea on Mr. Pattersons part!

    6. Another short and sweet masterpiece from Ms. Knightley. Sexy and satisfying, "Learning To Ride" was the perfect little "opposites attract" story about city slicker Madeline Harper being brought to Texas for a job relocation and meeting former rodeo rider Tanner Callen. With a sizzling hook-up and some light push/pull drama the connection between these two was well done and made me incredibly happy once finished. I love that these "Book-shots" give you a full story but don't take a lot of time to [...]

    7. Learning to Ride by Erin Knightley is one of the first titles published as part of James Patterson's new BookShots Flames imprint. I must admit, at first I had planned to avoid this line, as I don't read James Patterson and I thought the whole concept was kind of gimmicky. But after a string of DNFs, I was hoping to find a short but enjoyable read, so I picked up Learning to Ride. And I really liked it! It helps that it's a cowboy romance--one of my favorite tropes.Madeline Harper is a bonafide [...]

    8. This was a really fun and quick read. Madeline was a great character that I could easily relate to. She's career driven and love is the furthest thing from her mind. She's in town for one reason only, to make the deal that will send her back to the big city and cement her promotion into her dream job. But this little town seems to like having her around.Before she knows it, she's in a reading group, making friends, and has caught the eye of the town's most eligible bachelor, Tanner Callen. Tanne [...]

    9. What a great little book this is. Sweet love story about country cowboy, Tanner and city girl, Madeline Harper. She transfers, temporarily she believes, to Texas for her job. Wanting to experience a bit of country night life she ends up at The Rebel Yell. This is the local pub. It is there that she meets Tanner. He is everything she didn't know she wanted and it takes her awhile to figure that out. Perfect bedtime read with a HEA.

    10. Posted originally on my blog: The Writer's InkwellThis is the second of the James Patterson book shots I have read and I have to say, I wasn’t really impressed. To be fair, I think the author did a decent enough job. I just find the whole sexy cowboy, beautiful city girl romance is completely overdone. I suppose I just wish that for once there wasn’t such a cliche set up in romance books. Why can’t there more originality in these stories?I suppose this is why I do not like romances. Becaus [...]

    11. A fun and short romance story. I loved every minute of it! Madeline who only seems to care about work. Her boss in NYC send her down to Texas for a few months to take care of business. One night she meets Tanner in a bar and she has the night of her life. Tanner wants her to see that there is more to life than working all the time. Can he win her over? Read the story to find out!

    12. So I liked tanner a lot, but Madeline.Not so much. She came off like a snob. She kept attacking Tanner and his life. Then apologizing 10 minutes later. They spent a total of like 4 date together and fought on all of them. But they were so much in love? IDK but "Madeline" (not Maddie) ruined it for me. I'll go 3.5 stars

    13. Probably the best of the romantic bookshots so far. I don't feel too cheated on the story, it read well and ended as expected but perfectly. It was the structure of a full length novel squished perfectly into a hundred pages. Applause for Erin Knightly. Doesn't help that it was about a small texas town either :P A hot cowboy with an accent? Yes please :)

    14. This is the 1st book I read by Erin Knightley. I really liked Tanner's character. I thought Tanner was too nice for Madeline. I didn't like Madeline. I thought Madeline was rude. I thought this book's story line was slow & boring. Plus I didn't feel the chemistry between Tanner & Madeline.

    15. 1.5 stars. Only not a 1 because I didn't Hate it, I just didn't like it. Dull, boring, all the cliches like instalove and can't live without each other after like a month. Blech!

    16. Learning to RideThis is just like any other love story. Short and sweet with no plot at all. I sure hope that James Patterson doesn't write to many like this one.

    17. A rather forgettable book about two people from different worlds drawn irresistibly together. Though he keeps trying to get her to ride the mechanical bull, she only does it once. Not exactly a reason for the book’s title, and the other kind of riding in this book doesn’t seem to need much learning.

    18. Is she willing to take a chance on love or will she continue to be "professional" for the time she is in town? Courtney Patterson narrated both Madeline and Tanner well in this opposites attract Bookshot.

    19. Rodeo king Tanner Callen doesn't want to be tied down. When he sees Madeline Harper at a local honky-tonk and everything about her screams New York, he brings out every trick in his playbook to take her home. But soon he learns that he doesn't just want her for a night and, instead, hopes for forever. . . .I loved James Patterson's foreward. He admires Romance writers! WOW made me listen to this with a totally different ear. It's a sweet read!

    20. Short and sweet. I would have preferred a little more character/relationship development, but I sense the author was hindered by the low maximum word count limit. Really cute ending.
