Riding High by Vicki Lewis Thompson (A review)

Saddle up!

There ain’t a rider that can’t be thrown. And large-animal veterinarian Regan O’Connelli was thrown hard when he discovered his fiancée with his best friend. Now he’s starting his life over at the Last Chance Ranch, run by the tightly knit Chance clan. But damned if his libido hasn’t perked up over the spirited redhead who looks a lot like trouble….

Lily King is the queen of anti-structure. Turns out, that makes running a horse sanctuary a challenge. Regan’s help is exactly what Lily needs not to mention the seriously sexy sparks that are flying between them. Now she just has to convince this fallen cowboy to dust himself off and get back in the saddle…and into her bed!

Review by Beckey (with an expert of one Beckey’s favorite scenes from the book)

“I’ll be busy, but not that busy. I can replace a railing. It won’t take long.”

“You may be busier than you think.” She opened the front door and started toward her bedroom. “Come in here a minute.” She used the kind of matter-of-fact tone that would suggest more home maintenance issues. But she quivered in anticipation. “I have a problem in this room.”

“If it’s a plumbing issue, I may need help. I’m good with the carpentry stuff and a few minor plumbing repairs, but I won’t guarantee I can handle the big jobs.” He set his duffle on the living room floor before continuing to follow her.

“It’s not the plumbing.” She turned back toward him and gestured toward his duffle. “You might want to bring that with you.”

“It’s only my clothes. I don’t have any tools in there or… anything…” He stood in the middle of the living room and stared at her as comprehension dawned.


“Does your duffle have anything in it besides clothes?” His breathing changed. “A few other things. Shaving gear, a toothbrush.” He shrugged, but his gaze never left hers. “The usual. Was there something in particular you wanted to know about?”

Get ready for a roping good read with this one… Lily has more than one thing that needs help on her rescue…or she’ll… and Regan will be rescuing as well…

If you are looking for a contemporary romance with a little spice then I highly recommend Vicki and her Cowboys… Especially her Chance Series, this was another great edition to the series. And a bonus since all the book in the series can be read as standalone reads but each book has characters from another. Overall great.
