READ & DOWNLOAD Polo By Jilly Cooper

In Jilly Cooper's third Rutshire chronicle we meet Ricky France Lynch who is moody macho and magnificent He had a large crumbling estate a nine goal polo handicap and a beautiful wife who was fair game for anyone with a cheue book He also had the adoration of fourteen year old Perdita MacLeod Perdita couldn't wait to leave her dreary school and be. Horses bad behaviour and lots of orgasms Polo is the third book in Jilly Cooper s Rutshire Chronicles series and is hands down my absolute favourite of the currently nine book line up I may be a bit biased though as this was the first Jilly Cooper I ever read and the sex scenes it contains have been indelibly burned into what was my somewhat innocent teenage brain In fact Polo was my introduction to the concept that than one orifice could be utilised during intercourse Polo was originally published in 1991 but re reading it over twenty years after it first hit the shelves hasn t resulted in any loss of enjoyment The characters still feel over blown and awesome their carry on both awful and wonderful and their sexual shenanigans fun hot and captivatingAlthough Rupert Campbell Black the bad boy of Riders and Rivals continues to make his presence felt in Polo the stage belongs to moody macho and magnificent Ricky France Lynch a nine goal polo player suffering through personal tragedy and fourteen year old polo mad Perdita MacLeod who wants nothing than to get Ricky into bed A brilliant cast of charismatic supporting characters push the pair through the story their actions outweighed only by their outstanding names who wouldn t want to jump in the sack with someone called Red Angel Dancer or Jesus Interestingly something that s remained constant for me through many readings of this book is Perdita s spot in the limelight Her interactions with the men who surround her particularly Luke Alderton who is my favourite character steal the show from Ricky despite his eual billing That s not to say Ricky s story is weak it isn t it s just that his bratty side kick is very very compellingI m always intrigued by people s reactions to Jilly Cooper you either get oh God no or she s bloody brilliant Without a doubt I m in the latter group Her writing is sharp and witty she takes risks with her characters they often do very stupid things and have uestionable morals and her story plotting and pacing are excellent Further while this book has been enjoyed I suspect by a largely female audience over the years it seems that many men rate Jilly s writing too I recently had a male colleague proclaim Ms Cooper to be his favourite authorAs someone who grew up riding horses and still does I found the euine elements of this book very enjoyable but you in no way have to be a pony lover or a polo enthusiast to appreciate the story at hand Fundamentally Polo is all about relationships the ones that are healthy and ones that aren t

Not uite my favourite JCRivals is hard to beat I think but I still love this story as it arcs a couple of the other Rutshire novels so has a massive ridiculous cast of brilliant characters Special mention to adjectives repeatedly used including heavenly ravishing piggy and pouty If there is an alternate universe then I hope this is it
