About the Author
A product of the Midwest, Jacie Floyd believes it is the best and most under-rated place to live, except for the crazy uncertainty of the weather. Believing she was an island girl in a past life, she struggles with the bitter cold winters of Southwest Ohio and yearns for a view with crystal blue waters. From the time she read her first Nancy Drew mystery as a child, she's been an avid reader. After many years as a wife and mother with a nine-to-five job, the desire to create her own stories took over. While learning her craft as an unpublished author, she was honored to be named a six-time Golden Heart™ Finalist, and two-time Golden Heart™ winner by the Romance Writers of America. Finally giving in to the voices in her head, she ditched the full-time job in order to self-publish the kind of stories she likes to read and write. She likes fresh, flirty, and fun contemporaries about strong women who deal with relatable situations in familiar settings. She hopes you like them too.

Annabel Morgan and Max Williams have already met. They have even worked together in the past. Now, when her step-daughter wants to set her up with a hunk of a man before leaving for college, she chose of all people - Mad Max. Annabel is a stuffed shirt compared to Max. She was raised by stuff educating parents. Was married also to a professor, who passed away. She is jut grateful she has his daughter to love her. If only said daughter would not stop pushing her at men! Max was looking forward to meeting his "date" until he saw who it was. Annabel has always thought less of him. Judged him even, before getting to know the real man. This is his chance to show her what he was made of. They are both up for the same award. Both their pieces are deserving of said award. Who's will win? Her job may be on the line. He has a new one he wants to line up. And the winner is...... I enjoyed the banter and the amazing character development I saw in both the main characters. With sassy secondary characters the book was funny, sexy and an easy read to enjoy! I cannot wait to see what is in the next book in the Good Riders series.
I received this book for free through Goodreads First Reads, so I'd like to thank both Goodreads & Jacie Floyd for the chance in the first place. This is Jacie Floyd's debut novel, it was enjoyable, funny, witty & a really enjoyable read. I picked up the book (it's been calling me from my bookshelf) & I'm glad I had time to devour this easy read, it has a delightful story plot, great character development (making the characters easy to like & realte too) & the plot twists held your interest. The interaction between straight laced Annabel & larger-than-life Max is fun to read as well. I'll be reading book 2 A.S.A.P & keeping an eye out for future releases.
