Ride – Harper Dallas




So, last week I had this post on IG, talking about my most favorite sports romances and asking at the same time for recommendations. At least two people recommended RIDE to me, and since it was on KU I downloaded it right away.

And boy was I glad I did.

RIDE is the first book by Harper Dallas. It doesn’t feel like a debut novel at all. It’s amazing. Has all the FEELS, and was addicting from beginning to end. I honestly didn’t want to put it down.

For me a great sports romance focuses on the relationship but also on the sport. The author did just that with RIDE. With more than 400 pages this book is filled to the brim with amazing scenes dedicated to snowboarding as well as sports photography.

RIDE was a bit of an angsty and emotional rollercoaster ride which held me captive until an amazing ending, another thing I adored about this book, the author took her time to give her readers an amazing conclusion. So, the angst really got me going. And the FEELS were incredible. And OMG the sex scenes were SCORCHING HOT!!!!

But what it was most of all, it was emotionally gripping.

And the writing was superbly. Fresh, unique and catching. It had everything I love about a sports romance. Fantastic chemistry between the main characters, a crew that was endearing and charming, and a main character that was SWOONY!!!

From the first moment they met, Chase and Brooke had chemistry. He was interested but played it cool and not looking for more than a hookup. And she was interested but burned by an ex and didn’t want anything to do with a bad boy snowboarder. And I was stuck in the middle, devouring their connection and cheering from the sidelines.

The story was a change and a fresh take on a very popular trope. Nowadays authors have to come up with new ways to stand out, and I’m glad to report Harper Dallas delivered.

I love finding new authors. Even more tough if they have promise, and write one amazing novel. I’m so glad I found this author, and even more though that she is apparently working on her next novel.


No one rides like Chase Austin.

Bad boy. Player. Adrenaline junkie. Snowboarder Chase Austin has a reputation—and not just for being the world’s best extreme athlete. He’s as cold as the mountains he rides, loyal only to his crew . . . and panties drop wherever he goes.

Photographer Brooke Larson knows better than to let him get through her emotional Kevlar. So what if she used to have his poster on her bedroom wall? She’s not a teenager with a crush anymore. Chase Austin is her key to the big time, and she’s getting his photo no matter what.

Too bad the only place Chase wants her is in his bed.

Men leave. Success is forever. Brooke knows the drill, and she’s not letting anyone get in the way of her career—or into her heart.

But whether it’s on the slopes or between the sheets, riding with the best means risking it all.
