From the Publisher:
Pickup man Bridge Sullivan is the kind of cowboy everyone wants—as a brother, a friend, a lover. People think he’s straight, but Bridge isn’t one for labels, and when a sexy male paramedic jumpstarts his heart, he charges in with all guns blazing.
New York City transplant Eric Palmer grew up in foster care. While he always had a roof over his head, he never felt love or a sense of belonging . . . until he joined the California rodeo circuit as a paramedic and found a band of brothers who took him in as one of their own. Now, one in particular is making Eric’s pulse race.
When things heat up between Bridge and Eric, Bridge has to prove to Eric he’s not just experimenting with the rougher sex, while Eric must overcome his fears of being unwanted and cast aside. He knows that trusting Bridge may be the key to his happy ever after, but getting in the saddle is much, much easier than learning to let it ride.

What an emotional ride! From the very opening sentence, LC Chase pulled me into Bridge and Eric’s story. Let it Ride focused on two men from very different life situations. One man has identified as straight for most of his life, while the other is openly gay. I went into this thinking this would be your typical gay for you or late in life awakening tale, but it was so much more. The focus of this book was not the straight man coming to terms with his new found interest in men, or even with introducing said straight man to gay sex. The focus of this book was finding the person who is destined to be Bridge’s perfect partner. LC Chase focused on the connection between the men as the reason for the intense love and the HOT sex. Too often, sex is the metaphor for love, but in this case, love is what drove the sex to be what it was.
By focusing on the relationship developing between the men instead of just on the sex, the author did a great job letting the reader see what was happening inside the heads of both of the leading men. Sometimes it was wonderful, sometimes it was HOT, other times it was sad and heartbreaking. I laughed, I cried ugly tears, I cried happy tears, I finished this book emotionally worn out, but in a good way. LC Chase took me down a road of discovery for these two men and I enjoyed every minute of it. Let it Ride was well written, well developed, and well executed. It is a great addition to the Pickup Men series and I am excited to know that there is another installement in the works.
I would like to thank Riptide for providing me with the eARC of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.
