Blog Tour~ Taming Ryder by Nicola Haken

Taming Ryder blog tour banner


You met Ryder Richardson in Being Sawyer Knight. Now, this is his story.

I’ve done it. I’ve stuck a whopping two fingers up at my parents, I’ve made a name for myself as one of the world’s biggest porn stars and I’ve finally found a family I belong in.

Life is amazing. I get paid to do all my favourite things. Fuck. Party. Travel the world. What’s not to love?

And then he comes along. Mason George – Back Door Studio’s newest exclusive model and the guy who has the potential to either fuck it all up, or take me on the best ride of my life.

~ Ryder

I’m desperate. I’ve got nothing and nobody left. Entering the daunting world of adult entertainment is less of a dream and more of a necessity. Signing as Back Door Studio’s latest model has the ability to either ruin or make me, but I made a vow at my first audition never to let myself regret it.

I continue to question myself each day, but no amount of what’s, why’s or what ifs will change where I am or where I’m heading. Am I strong enough to do this? To embrace it? To enjoy it? I have no idea.

The only thing I’m certain of, is that if anyone can teach me who I’m supposed to be, it’s Ryder Richardson.

~ Mason

“Because the most exciting things in life always happen via the back door”


5 stars final
Taming Ryder (Souls of the Knight, #2)Taming Ryder by Nicola Haken

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


I was given this to read and review for Sexyways of Reading.

Honestly, I was very surprised by this book. I read the blurb and was intrigued. Normally, I’m not a huge fan of contemporary romance books. I put all reservations aside and just read the book for itself, and was wholly surprised. It was well put together, with a lot of twists I wasn’t expecting. There is a HEA at the end, but at some points I just had to wonder!

Ryder Richardson is a gay porn star, not surprising given its mentioned in the blurb about the book. We travel with him on his journey as he discovers a family in the business but what we learn is that he, like many of us, is healing in some way. (Not going to go into it because I don’t want to ruin the book!)

Along comes Mason George. He shows up for an interview at the company that Ryder works for. He has his own issues that he is dealing with.

Together, along with the rest of the ‘family’, both men go down a twisted, winding path of healing. Be sure to have some tissues near you, you just might need them!  HeatherFortmanPINK
