Voice Over: Amanda Lamb (the voice of the In the Reins series audiobooks)
JD McCall lives his life fast and focused on exactly what’s in front of him: the next woman, the next drink, the next eight seconds on a rank bull. As best man in his brother’s wedding, JD scoffs at the idea of love—where’s the fun in that? The one good thing about the wedding is Everly Mitchell, the maid of honor—a tall, gorgeous, feisty redhead who hails all the way from New York City.
When the National Bull Rider tour leads JD to the big city, he saddles up with Ev, who ends up dealing him an even faster lifestyle than his own, full of lights, cameras, and plenty of action. Now on Ev’s concrete turf, JD realizes a simple bull rider is no match for a savvy businesswoman.
Beyond Eight Seconds is the newest adventure in the In the Reins series, includes all of Green Briar’s herd members, and continues the love stories found in In the Reins, Cowboy Away, and Show Pen Promise.
Readers are saying ...
"What a fun follow-up to an already great series! This fourth installment picks up with all our favorite characters but really turns the spotlight onto sexy bull rider JD. I learned so much about professional bull riding through the witty dialogue and great action scenes. I especially enjoyed the contrasting settings of Green Briar Farm and the fast-paced lifestyle in New York City. And, of course, there was plenty of toe-curling romance and relationship drama to keep me turning those pages. A must-read for everyone who loves horses, cowboys, rodeos, and a great romance!" - Amy Elizabeth, Author of the Aspen Eyes Series
"As a dedicated Carly Kade fan, this series starts out great and just keeps getting better and better! Once I started reading Beyond Eight Seconds, I could hardly put it down. I smiled, I laughed, and then, I was on the edge of my seat! Kade has so much talent that I feel as if the characters are real people. Readers will love this book regardless but, if you are a horse owner (as I am) and a rodeo fan, you'll find satisfaction in the knowledge with which Kade writes about her chosen subject area. I'm already looking forward to her next release!" - Hope Ellis-Asburn, Author of Kimbrook Arabians
"I feel like I'm cheating on Carly's other books by saying this, but Beyond Eight Seconds is definitely her best work to date! And that's so hard for me to say because I LOVE her first three as well! But in Book 1 I fell hard and fast for JD McCall, so I simply couldn't wait for him to have his own book. And BES did not disappoint!! JD was born to be a star, and Carly gave him the spotlight he deserved. Readers will love new character, Ev, as well. I VERY highly recommend this one. Thank you Carly for giving JD his own book - excited to see what's next for him!" - Laurie Berglie, Author of the Equestrian Romance Series
"I’ve read Carly’s series from the beginning and was so excited to see JD get some special attention while Devon and McKennon didn’t get left behind. Truly a wonderful read you won’t want to put down. Hold on beyond eight seconds because this is going to be a fun ride!" - Heather Wallace, Author of Girl Forward
