Peyton's Ride by Jennifer James *Review*


She's about to trade her treasured motorcycle in on a much wilder ride--Ian Coghlan.

Divorcee Peyton Reynolds is ready to escape the the judgement of a small town, bad memories of her failed marriage, and the grief of her mother's death. A month long, cross-country ride should do just the trick. One last check-up on her new cruiser has her tripping over her hormones while alone in the garage with the town's sexy bad boy, Ian Coghlan.

Tattooed, pierced, and able to shape-shift, Ian will give her the ride of her life. 

Ian Coghlan knows he's nothing but disaster for a woman like Peyton. His place in the Wild Hunt and killer instincts have held him back from acting on a five-year attraction. When the curvy brunette responds to one tiny grin with a spark of interest, sockets fly out of the toolboxes and Peyton is knocked to the floor.

That month of solitude she wanted just disappeared, but the consolation prize is looking pretty...damn...hot.

With the magic of the Hunt in the air, Pixie pranks abound, and his old biker gang roars into the parking lot, dousing the heat in the garage with the cold dredges of mayhem. Peyton's life is on the line with his bad brothers' return to his world, and Ian has to decide if he can let her go or if he's willing risk her eternal hatred by changing her life forever.





I received a copy of this story for an honest review.  Pictures used as part of this review were used for fun and do not belong to me.

From full length novels to quick novellas, everything I’ve had the opportunity to read and review of Jennifer James’s I have enjoyed and readily recommended. I’m happy to report that Peyton’s Ride is another solid addition to her writing resume. Take one sexy cougar unsure of how to put her claws into action, add one ridiculously hot pierced and tattooed mechanic who happens to be a supernatural powerhouse, mix in a mutual love of motorcycles and you get one hell of a ride.

Peyton Reynolds is not feeling on top of her game. Betrayed by her cheating bastard of a husband and left as the sole the caretaker to a mother ravaged by Alzheimer’s disease, Peyton’s few moments of joy have come on the back of her old motorcycle. With her divorce finalized and her mother now passed, Peyton’s determined to put herself first and embrace her love of the open road.


Fae Ian Coghlan was cast out of the mythical Wild Hunt for his inability to find a mate. Hiding himself in middle of nowhere Georgia, Ian passes endless days selling and fixing bikes. He has always enjoyed Peyton’s brief visits to the shop, but today her presence is different. Today that spark of interest Ian felt for Peyton ignites into a blazing inferno. When the Wild Hunt shows up at the shop, Ian knows it’s no coincidence. Could Peyton be his missing mate? And if so, can he fight off his Fae brothers long enough to claim her?


Peyton’s Ride was so fun and uniquely interesting that I couldn’t put it down, I burnt through the story in one quick sitting. Peyton and Ian manage to be super lovable and blush-inducing hot. Both had their own hurts but maintained their pride and sense of humor. I loved how each not so secretly checked each other out as they gradually made their mutual interest known. Once they connected, the amount of heat the two generated made me worry if my Kindle was going to start steaming.

If there’s any complaint about Peyton’s Ride it’s that I need more of the Wild Hunt… like right now. Fae mythology has always been interesting to me and James really sparked my interest with Peyton’s Ride. If she revisits Peyton and Ian or expands on the other members of the Wild Hunt I will be on it in a heartbeat. So much sexy, fun potential.

While I keep my fingers crossed, check out Peyton’s Ride.

Happy reading.
