The Longest Ride is one of my favorite Nicholas Sparks books but I didn’t think that it would be when I started reading it. But I was pleasantly surprised. I like how almost all of his book take place in North Carolina. Sophia Danko is a college senior at Wake Forrest. She’s majoring in art history and is a sorority girl. Luke Collins is a North Carolina cowboy who also happens to be a washed up bullrider. These two are from two completely different worlds.
I enjoyed the setting and how the story of Luke and Sophia was intertwined with Ira’s and Ruth’s. Even though the four have never met. For a mainstream romance The Longest Ride is a pretty clean read. Things are mentioned and things happen but the novel does not go into any details. I would still only say 18 or older unless parents have read it first and decide it’s okay.
