    3.5 stars A little disappointed that the final action that took down the killer was written off page. After all the excitements that happened to get the guy, I wanted the big bang. ...

    Some Mild Spoilers At only 90 pages, there isn?t a lot of room for huge character and plot development, yet Lanyon manages to build two well-developed characters and a plot that was taken right out of actual 1940s headlines. The setting was well established, and the use of old, ou...

    A surprisingly quick read with a decent romance but a bit of a womp-womp mystery plot. It was an odd choice to have the climax take place off page and the whole ending seemed rushed as a result, including the romance. Those things aside, my biggest issue with this story was the casual ...

    This book is a short story by Josh Lanyon, one of my favorite M/M authors. I found SLAY RIDE to be a fun short story but because of the length, I do think that there?s a lot to be desired. I know a lot of other people I talked to felt that it was too short also and I think tha...

    There is nothing better than a Josh Lanyon story. I loved these two together but they did have lots of problems, not the least of which was the time they fell in love. To be together, they had to be creative and creative they were. Short and sweet but quite complete, this one is perfec...

    I liked the time period in which this story takes place. I liked the characters. But I couldn't give this book more than 2 stars because, for such a short story there were too many editing errors. A few errors in a longer story can be excused, but more attention should be paid to the e...

    Slay Ride is a very short historical m/m mystery from Josh Lanyon. I?ve enjoyed a number of Lanyon?s books in the past, but this wasn?t one of my favourites. It?s very short ? 96 pages ? and although there were some things I thought it did well, there were also some that...

    I love Lanyon! And always will. But... This quick read started out strong with clear, likable characters and action galore, but the ending disappointed me. Why were we left out of the big finish? ...

    For having waited so long for this story, I was really disappointed in the abrupt and unsatisfying ending. It felt unfinished. (And be forewarned, if you are reading from an old Kindle, (2010), don't be surprised if you can't read/see the near-to-last-bit. At 2 in the morning I was no...

    So, it wasn't really 4 Stars but it was definitely better than just 3. For 2020, I'm thinking I may need to revisit last-year's resolution to NOT round up... LOVED Alexander Marsters' narration for this; he's got the right tone and cadence for the story and era setting. About the...

    Once again Josh Lanyon does not disappoint. She has blended suspense and romance perfectly as well as set the scene for the WW2 era homefront. Robert having been wounded and discharged is now sheriff and Jamie, 4F who is disappointed not to serve. One of my dad's uncles was unable to s...

    Audiobook Review November 2019: Considering it's only been about 6 months since I originally read Slay Ride(listening to the audiobook so soon is something I very rarely do) the suspense still had me glued to my seat. There really is nothing more I can add to the original review so I'...

    Set in December 1943, this short historical story gives us an atmospheric snapshot of the US during the war era and an exciting chase after a killer. There?s sexual tension between the Police Chief and the youthful journalist as the story progresses and they manage to snatch some rom...

    ***4.5*** / Because I greedily wanted an epilogue. Happy Early Christmas! I'd read this story before but the audio, by Alexander Masters just came out, I couldn't resist, and I'm not sorry. No one does XX Century historical shorts quite like Josh Lanyon: nuanced and layered. Fu...

    A Joyfully Jay review. 3.5 stars As always, author Josh Lanyon has done her homework and Slay Ride has all the right components to make it feel authentic. Despite this being a short story, the sexual tension between Jamie and Rob is realistic and intense and the chase to capture...

    Loved the setting and how the story played out. Maybe just 3.5 because it was so short. Would have loved to see their relationship develop just a little more. Robert was such a solid guy and Jamie is a real sweetheart. It was painful to see how the war had hurt so many families- a lot ...

    Slay Ride reminded me a little bit of Snowball in Hell, as in the main characters were a journalist and a police officer. They both had some elements of war affecting the protagonists. I found the mystery to be all over the place though. ...

    Audiobook review Slay Ride was a sweet mystery novella. Set during Christmas in 1943 Montana it had a wonderful sense of place and time. Even though this book is short it?s packed with emotions, a great plot and likable characters. I think what l liked the most, and maybe that...

    I absolutely devour any historical that Josh Lanyon writes. They are such a sweet treat when she shares them with us, and I know they're a labor-intensive project like no other. Lanyon fully immersed the reader in another place and time, successfully painting a great backdrop of histor...

    Reading a Josh Lanyon book never satisfies me. As soon as I read the last page i am craving another story from this gifted mystery/romance writer. Slay Ride has a riveting story-line in set in the rustic state of Montana. It's the 1940's and Robert Garrett is a chief police officer a...

    Hmmm Well it was kind of too short. Like some stories fit the small size and some don't: this is the latter. If I were to nitpick, I'd say the narrative was too sweet. I love Josh Lanyon's subtle humor and this story was lacking it (maybe because it was third person narrative I don'...
