An introduction to the rough riders the cowboys

Dec 06, 2011 Beanbag Love rated it liked it I thought this story was better than the last two, but there are definitely some problems. I did ultimately enjoy it and it was engaging in ways other than the erotic elements, but some things could have been better.

This book has some very hot sex scenes, no question. But the BDSM scenario, unfortunately, didn't really break too much new ground for this series. When has a McKay not been dominant?

The Rough Riders

Except for Keely who kind of shared dominance with Jack, but still we've seen variations of a lot of I thought this story was better than the last two, but there are definitely some problems. Except for Keely who kind of shared dominance with Jack, but still we've seen variations of a lot of this stuff before.

Bondage, spanking, the nekkid rule, sex toys etc. This added the use of spanking instruments and.

  1. Third, I was very impressed with the writing.
  2. But their behavior toward Ben was reprehensible and it was not resolved to my satisfaction by the end. It was an eye-opener, though to a perspective of war that isn't really aired in today's various debates.
  3. The whole thing is essentially built around one battle that ends halfway through the book, and the fact that the rest of the book keeps the reader's interest, I think, is a testament to good story-telling. It happened when Colonel Wood was given the command of a brigade and Roosevelt received a promotion to full colonel and command of the Rough Riders.
  4. But at the same time, he didn't skimp I enjoyed this short book quite a bit.
  5. Ben really appealed to me. In fact, the tempest in a teapot that their commander had initiated worked against not only him, but also his regiment.

Things did go a bit further and there was the voyeurism of the club, but I still didn't feel like we were treading on forbidden ground here. Which is a problem in that it's the central issue of the book.

  • Ainsely was a good character, although she kept her doubts about subbing for too long;
  • Although there was absolutely no need for this war, he considered it a just cause, and he openly promoted it.

I feel like authors think their readers are going to get their feminist panties in a wad when a woman is a submissive. But it's explained that the submissive lets go of control so they can let go of self-consciousness and allow themselves total freedom to feel. Authors should allow themselves total freedom to write the story without worrying about someone freaking out about an honest BDSM scene.

If I believe that this preference allows the sub the freedom to express herself or himself in ways that are crucial to their personal empowerment -- I'm going to accept what you give me. Now, having said that, I thought the scenes were hot until a lie was told.

Rough Riders: Theodore Roosevelt, His Cowboy Regiment, and the Immortal Charge Up San Juan Hill

James basically gives us a didactic rundown of the BDSM scene on the level of Robyn Carr so we see some themes come up again and again. Trust is the most fundamental part of this lifestyle, of course, so as soon as that lie came out -- even though it had nothing to do with the sex -- the whole thing was tainted.

An introduction to the rough riders the cowboys

I hated every sex scene after that until the reconciliation. It was a huge turn-off. Another thing that bothered me was the McKay family.

This might sound like the old "I buy Playboy for the articles" thing, but I really do like these stories for the family dynamic as much as for everything else. In the earlier books there were rifts among the Carson McKays but they were resolved or at least addressed and on the way to being resolved by the end of each book. Not so in this one. I understand that the Casper McKays are broken.

Cowboy Casanova

Not one of them seems to have been in therapy after being raised by two selfish parents, one abusive and one an abuse enabler. But their behavior toward Ben was reprehensible and it was not resolved to my satisfaction by the end. The things Tell and Dalton said were awful. And Tell's book is next. I'm really not all that interested in reading about him after this.

Now I'm defending them? I know, I'm all over the place.

  • And finally, if Gavin gets together with Rielle I will cry;
  • And Regulars were justified in resenting the situation, for believing that the Rough Riders — and their commander — had received media attention all out of proportion to their actual contribution to the war effort;
  • When has a McKay not been dominant?
  • In 1996, Congress passed a bill that waived time restrictions for awarding the Medal of Honor;
  • If only marginally better than Chase's story which I might have given four stars, but really it's rated about the same.

But it seems Colt doesn't realize that alcoholics aren't the only ones who matter. There's a reason AA has the apology rule. Alcoholics hurt and even destroy the people who love them.

See a Problem?

Colt was self-righteous and totally wrong to be so unkind when they showed their bitterness. The fact they were even looking for their father shows they care. Okay, so it would seem I didn't like it. I kept wanting to get back to it and read more about Ben and Ainesly who had very good chemistry. Ben really appealed to me. I sympathized with his feelings of not fitting in and his low self-esteem.

And I want his house.

  1. Another thing that bothered me was the McKay family. It must have been a bittersweet moment for the president.
  2. McKinley was the last U.
  3. Just go for it. The Hearst and Pulitzer newspapers did not hesitate to name the Spaniards as the perpetrators.

Ainsely was a good character, although she kept her doubts about subbing for too long. This is another author trick that I think needs to go away. None of the tepid junk. Just go for it. But, again, I think authors are too afraid of showing a woman giving it all up like that.

Either you believe it's a pathway to freedom that actually empowers the character, or you don't. There were too many times when I felt that James didn't believe that. And finally, if Gavin gets together with Rielle I will cry. One of my favorite parts of this book was when Ainesly told her off. There's a lot of redemption needed in that character before I'll be happy with her as a heroine.

I'm just hoping I'm wrong. Over three stars but under four. Could have been better but I also think it was better than the last two. If only marginally better than Chase's story which I might have given four stars, but really it's rated about the same. There was enough good about this book that the bad things really ticked me off. So there ya go.
