Rated 3 out of 5 by from Okay Good but not great. I'm also just not a huge fan of stories where the girl already has a guy and is sorta flirting and emotionally cheating on him with another. I struggle rooting for her even though her bf is a jerk himself. Def not one of her best but still an easy read

Rated 3 out of 5 by from not as good as her others. I kept waiting for something exciting to happen but nothing happened. Good location, but something more romantic could've happened. I felt disappointed when the book was done. The other book by Rachel Hawthorne that I have read were way better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVED.IT. Well this book was fantasic in my opinion. When Rachel writes these books she definitely knows how to make us want boys like these! Her description of characters are always great, and gives us a great view in our minds of what they actually look like..I definitely recommend Carribean Cruising, Love on the Lifts, Island Girls (and boys) and, The Boyfriend League. They're all great romantic novels that make your heart melt. But i have to say that Thrill Ride is probably the best. Enjoy! :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Thrilling A lovely book. Easy read, though at times slow paced. This book like many others is a very good read, wouldn't put it at the top of the llist as it has very little in depth plot and other aspects, though for a small book like this it's absolutely great. Loves is everywhere when one takes a job at an amusement park miles away from home for the summer, even if you have a boy friend back home.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rachel Hawthorne did it again! She is such a great writer. I've read Love on the Lifts, and totally loved it. Thrill ride is as good. She is really great to help us set in the caracter's skin that you feel the emotions and joys that it feels. I really consider you going to pick up this book at your local bookstore, you won't regret it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AMAZING! I started reading summer romance books last year and now I'm totally hooked on them! This book is so cool, and I loved how it was written. From the first page I was interested and now I love it SO MUCH! Also read Caribbean Cruising and Island Girls (and Boys) and have yet to read Love on the Lifts. These books are so amazing! You gotta read more R.H. books!

So she has a boyfriend back at her home, but when she goes away to her job she meets this guy who kisses her and stuff.
