CR Review: Ride with me by Ruthie Knox

Ride with Me
by Ruthie Knox
Published February 13th 2012 by Loveswept

In this fun, scorching-hot eBook original romance by Ruthie Knox, a cross-country bike adventure takes a detour into unexplored passion. As readers will discover, Ride with Me is not about the bike!

When Lexie Marshall places an ad for a cycling companion, she hopes to find someone friendly and fun to cross the TransAmerica Trail with. Instead, she gets Tom Geiger—a lean, sexy loner whose bad attitude threatens to spoil the adventure she’s spent years planning.

Roped into the cycling equivalent of a blind date by his sister, Tom doesn’t want to ride with a chatty, go-by-the-map kind of woman, and he certainly doesn’t want to want her. Too bad the sight of Lexie with a bike between her thighs really turns his crank.

Even Tom’s stubborn determination to keep Lexie at a distance can’t stop a kiss from leading to endless nights of hotter-than-hot sex. But when the wild ride ends, where will they go next?


Ruthie Knox sucked me in with her book, About Last Night and when I saw Ride with Me I knew I had to read it. Where the couple in About Last Night get together really fast and then learn about each other as they go, Tom and Lexie get to know about each other and then get together. Both books and couples are hot.

Lexie puts an ad in the paper looking for a riding partner for her cross country bike ride. Tom just wants to get out on the open road and away from people. But thanks to Tom's sister he now has a riding partner. And to his surprise Alex is a girl and also goes by the name Lexie.

The two are complete opposites in every way, including their bike riding styles. Lexie is all about following the maps and rules where Tom is more laid back. Lexie is a people person and Tom would rather be alone but because he can't let a woman ride alone he is stuck with the talkative and sexy Lexie until he can find her another partner.

The couple have some ups and downs during their trip across the country but as they get to know each other a romance begins to grow. Tom and Lexie are both closed off in their own ways not wanting to let the other one in; afraid of could happen.

I am not a bicycling fan but after reading Ride with Me, I wouldn't mind riding across country with the hot Tom and having steamy tent sex. Ride with me is an emotional ride on a metaphoric bike for two.
