5.0 out of 5 stars Will kick the libido into overdrive! 6 Feb 2002
By C. Penn - Published on Amazon.com
A five year engagement leads to dreams of marriage and children for Corinne McCourt. But with fiancé Tony Borgeson continuing to drag his feet on setting a wedding day, Corinne resorts to desperate measures to rekindle his flame. Rather than attending her annual company picnic this year, Corinne plans to surprise Tony for lunch. Dressed in nothing but plastic wrap and stiletto heels, she greets Tony at the door. But he isn't alone. Some frizzy-haired blond calls Corinne the cleaning lady while Tony still treats her like Inconspicuous Corinne. While Tony argues with the frizzy ditz, Corinne picks up the keys to his Porsche, and leaves. She had planned to shed her inhibitions; instead, she leaves behind her whole life.
Detective Leo Wolfman hates the desk assignment he received following a drug bust in which he was shot. But four months of typing with two fingers leaves him desperate for a "real" assignment. So his boss says if Leo solves a "bump and run" then he can return to regular duty. The investigation leads him to a boxing ring and a gorgeous woman he only knows as Red. Leo doesn't suspect the woman follows actually took her cousin's place for a few weeks, and is really Corinne. The subterfuge gives her opportunity to be as wild and sexy as she wants. Leo doesn't know Corinne is attracted to and excited by his bold perusal when he enters her dressing room and finds her naked. Indeed, her mixed signals baffle him with her mix of siren and innocence. Leo only knows that his reaction throws his libido into overdrive.
Author Colleen Collins brings the humor that makes her popular in Harlequin's Duet line to the Temptation selection JOY RIDE. Dramatic, uninhibited and a touch of the forbidden make JOY RIDE a thrilling experience. Collins exploits what anonymity can do for a woman with a suppresses streak of daring and boldness when that anonymity gives room for sensual self-discovery that transforms the previous inconspicuous Corinne. Further, Collins has a deft touch for creating outrageous yet believable characterizations. The hero and heroine have depth while still allowing the narrative to remain light in tone. In addition, not only does the naughty cousin that Corinne replace walk on the wild side, but so does the hero's pet parrot who's named Mel Gibson and has a drinking problem. Indeed, all the secondary characters sparkle as brilliantly as Corinne and Leo. Very highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a fantastic story 12 Feb 2002
By Josephina Schwag - Published on Amazon.com
What an amazing story!!!!! I immediately fell in love with Corrine McCourt in the opening chapter. I was so connected with her as a character and cheered her along on her journey. Collins is such a creative and gifted writer. I'm eager to read more of her books. This one is a favorite of mine, and believe me, I read plenty of books. Bravo Colleen!

4.0 out of 5 stars humorous contemporary romance 30 Jan 2002
By Harriet Klausner - Published on Amazon.com
To add sexy spice into her life Corinne McCourt decides to surprise her fiancé Tony Bergerson. However the surprise is on Corrine as she catches Tony with some bimbo. Outraged, Corrine takes her two-week vacation from work immediately, steals Tony's Ferrari, and drives from Denver to her cousin Sandie's apartment in Las Vegas.

Sandie welcomes Corrine, but informs her favorite relative that she needs to go away. Her lover pulled a bump and run with Sandie in his car on an old man's Studebaker and she needs time to think. Corrine pretends to be Sandie over the next few days. Vegas police detective Leo Wolfman still recovers from a bullet he took on a case that involved his now ex-wife. His first non-desk assignment since the injury is the Studebaker case. However, when he sees Corrine masquerading as Sandie, he struggles with an attraction he does not want, but soon love proves too powerful even for this romantic turned cynic. Corrine shares his feelings, but wonders if he loves her or her Sandie impersonation.

JOYRIDE is a humorous contemporary romance that category readers will enjoy. Though the story line requires acceptance of the quirks of the cast especially why Sandie would potentially endanger her beloved cousin, fans will enjoy their eccentricity. Colleen Collins has written a fun book that deserves a sequel starring a lovesick professional wrestler.
