I cannot believe I have gone this long without getting obsessed with Jilly Cooper novels. This is the second one I have read now and my passion for her books just gets stronger.
This book is such an easy read, even if there are hundreds of characters throughout the story. Cooper handily has a character intro at the start of the book.
Always seen as a bonkbuster Jilly Cooper does not disappoint as there is much sex to be had throughout the story but the book is also about the underdogs trying to fight the big powerful and corrupt business man.
A great enjoyable story for lovers of a good hearty romance. Praise for another great read.
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.
