Ride Along by Meghan Maslow


Drew Nolan is a loud-and-proud mystery writer with a brutal case of writer’s block. He needs practical experience with the Baltimore police beat to get his latest manuscript to his publisher on time. When he wins a ride-along at a writer’s conference, he thinks he’s hit the jackpot… until he meets his partner.

Closeted cop Josh de Oliveira lost his family, his partner, and the respect of his unit—all for doing the right thing. Recently busted back down to patrol, he’s relieved to get a cushy assignment at the Author’s Police Institute where he’ll take one lucky writer on a ride-along. Unfortunately, his author looks like he belongs in the backseat of Josh’s squad car—long, ginger dreadlocks, piercings, and an “I would bottom you so hard” T-shirt. But there’s something about Drew Josh is having a hard time resisting.

It’s going to be a long night and one hell of a ride as opposites attract and realize they share a lot in common beneath the surface. As animosity becomes desire, they realize they can help each other out—in more ways than one.

States of Love: Stories of romance that span every corner of the United States.

I have to say that I absolutely loved that one of the main characters was so different than most. Red hair, lip ring, loud and proud. Drew was just awesome. Meanwhile, Officer Hot Stuff was super sexy (who doesn't love a cop that fills out his uniform?), but he is dealing with some very heavy stuff that really made me feel so bad for him.

There were a few characters in this book that I just hated and every time they entered a scene I sneered because I just knew they were going to ruin what our boys had going for them.

Drew's family was quite the bunch as well. A very well written bunch of secondary characters.

It was nice to see that there were some stand up cops that didn't always allow Officer D-Head to beat up on Josh.

It was really cute how Drew found out that Josh was gay. Very unique way since he is sort of in the closet because of his job.

Very enjoyable story with interesting characters.



MEGHAN MASLOW is truly a rare breed. No, not a unicorn (although that would be sooo cool). She’s a—gasp!—extroverted writer.

She believes that life is meant to be lived. Preferably with lots of people around. Every day is an adventure, or should be. She’s spent a large portion of her life working and living in various countries in Africa. She’s multitalented, having perfected the art of eavesdropping in bars around the world while chugging local brews, and gabbing with anyone who isn’t quick enough to elude her grasp. She believes kindness is contagious, and learning to laugh at yourself is one of life’s greatest gifts (and challenges). She advocates for social justice, believes storytelling can be transformative, and surprisingly isn’t a misanthrope. She loves travel, reading, world music, Moscow Mules, awkward dancing, dreadlocks, her family, and um… writing.
