Torn between the love he has…and the love he’s always wanted.

Chassie West Glanzer hasn’t been a stranger to tragedy. So a year of wedded bliss to sexy-as-sin cowboy Trevor Glanzer has brought her the happiness and contentment she never thought she’d find. And running a ranch has mellowed Trevor’s rodeo wanderlust. Then Trevor’s old roping partner ambles up the driveway—throwing Chassie’s life into chaos.

Trevor never expected to see Edgard Mancuso again, after it became clear he couldn’t be the man Edgard needed. Now Edgard has returned from Brazil to sort out their tangled past. Although Trevor is hat-over-bootheels in love with his sweet, feisty wife, he’s plagued by feelings for Edgard he thought he’d buried years ago.

Chassie’s shock that Edgard and Trevor were once lovers turns to fear of losing her husband. Or worse, fear that Trevor will stay with her only out of a sense of duty. Edgard wasn’t sure how he’d feel about Trevor’s wife, but the more time he spends with the big-hearted cowgirl, the deeper their connection becomes. As the three of them test their intimate boundaries together, the sins of the past blur and fade, leaving raw emotion—and unbridled passion.

Passion that could heal them…or cause irreparable damage to their future.

It absolutely broke my heart that Trevor and Edgard didn't get their happliy ever after in the first book, but this was a great way to bring them together. Chassie needed Trevor, and Trevor needed her, But Edgard need them both. I hated the way they had to be torn apart in the first book, and Trevor ended up getting drunk for six months after Edgard left, but when he walked up the driveway looking for Trevor and Trevor comes out and swings him up in his arms that was great. Chassie is a strong woman, and accepts Edgard into their lives, and into their bed, and it ended up being one of my very favorite stories. This series should continue on for a long time, the characters are a plenty, and there is lots of territory to cover, so keep'em comin' Lorelie James.

I really loved the story of Trevor, who truly loves his wife, but also has to learn what his true feelings are for his former lover, Edgard. He also has to decide his regarding his family. I thoroughly enjoyed. The sex scenes were extremely hot. If you do not like to read about homosexual sex, then this book is not for you.

So I was a bit put off by the man on man action that was a given in this book (I am not a homophobe but I wouldnt generally read a gay erotica novel either). But there really is just so much going on in this book, the storyline is really good. The sexual stuff in these books (I think anyways) really just blends so well with the story.

Chassie Glazner is one lucky cowgirl and madly in love with her hubby Trevor(Trev). They are two hard working people that are struggling to make ends meet. They would love to expand their land but they don't have the funds to do so another dream put on hold for now. Trevor loves Chassie with all of his heart yet he never expected to see his former lover Edgard(Ed) Mancuso again and certain on his doorstep. Trevor is filled with such confusion and longing at seeing Ed again. He wonders what Ed could possibly want after three and half years. Ed Mancuso walked away from Trev once but this time he's not walking away until he gets somc answers to his questions. Ed surprises Trev by helping out on the ranch getting to know Chassie while Trev stays out of his way entirely. When Chassie catches Trev and Ed kissing each other, she's devasted and hurt beyond belief. She's not sure what to do about the situation and gets advice from her cousin Colby and his wife Channing. When Chassie returns she asks and demands to see Trev and Ed share their love for one another in front of her. Trev balks at the suggestion yet Ed sees the sense in Chassie's request. What Chassie witnesses is beyond her expectation and considers making Ed apart of her and Trev's lovemaking. Will Trev admit his feelings and not hide? Will Ed be honest with Chassie and Trev? Can the twosome become a threesome? What are Chassie's feeling for Ed? Your answers await you in Rough, Raw, and Ready.

The explicit descriptions of the m/m action were a bit too much for my liking but this was a touching poignant love story nonetheless.

This was a fantastic of my all time favorite reads! The relationship between the characters was extremely loving but also extremely sexy. I love how the characters were able to "have it all" and be unconventional. I will definitely always remember this book.

This was not the best of the ones i have read so far. I just think it was alright and was not the best story line. Just a bit boring.

I wasn't expecting this story from this author. Having lived around real working cowboys most of my life I know their feelings on certain subjects. This story would definitely light a fire under most of them and not in a good way. I think that Ms. James did a good job writing such a story and showing a way a menage, m/m/f, could work in the real world. I also love that Ms. James ties each story to the next. The underlying plot of the McKay/West families run through all the books I have read so far. Ms James also has a wonderful understanding of what it is like to live in rural America. It is often hard and requires a lot of back breaking work to make a ranch or farm a profitable venture. I can't wait to read the rest of this series. I love the characters, the Wyoming background, and the love of family that shines through each story.

I have followed this series hoping Trevor and especially Edgar would find love as it seemed he was always left out in the cold, so to speak. I did not expect the story to go thevway it has but glad it did. Having lived over 40 years feeling things are missing in the relationship it is refreshing to think couples might actually sit down and talk out hard things in relationships instead of hiding. Who knows, situations might actually work out to benefit all, but it would take complete honesty all the way around. Any way l found this to be like the other stories a hot read

I absolutely LOVE and trust everything Lorelei puts out. Her writing styles from her western/cowboy to her fighter/mma is remarkably different. However, amazing at the same time. It takes a brilliant writer to be so diverse in her styles.

We all know that many people don't look kindly to homo or bisexual people. More so for redneck, he-man cowboys. This story shows us that and more. After leaving for Brazil, with the intention of not coming back, Edgard is now looking for a place to live after things home don't go as he thought they would. Since Trevor is now married he doesn't think he has a chance at being happy with him, even more so as he gets to know Chassie more deeply and realizes she if perfect for Trevor. What they didn't count on was Chassie knowing the truth of their past together and proposing they be with each other in front of her. When all is said and done Chassie can't deny that part of her is involved in a deeper level and that makes for an explosive encounter and even better love. This book shows us that if we truly love we accept and in the end it could be even better for us.

Rough Riders are a great series of books by Lorelei James. We get to see How Trevor deals with two issues from Long Hard Ride and becomes part of the McKay/West clan. So glad Edgard is back and Chassie finds happiness. Thanks Lorelie & Good Writing
