I was looking for an author to fill the space that Jackie Collins had left, and I have to say I think I’ve done it. Jilly Coopers first novel Riders is fantastic, full of sex, hatred and a desire to win the reader is plunged into the world of show jumping.
The characters are sexy and heartbreaking but none more so than Rupert Campbell-Black who is the most central character. We follow a group of show jumpers who want to win Olympic gold and they will stop at nothing to win. Along the path to gold is many trials and tribulations, riders having accidents or sleeping with other riders cannot boost team morale.
Can the team put all their hatred for each other aside and ride to Olympic victory? Well you will just have to read it to find out. A great long novel, super easy to read and super trashy. Just what I was looking for.
