Too hot to handle . . .
Tabitha Allen grew up in the thick of Chaos-the Chaos Motorcycle Club, that is. Her father is Chaos' leader, and the club has always had her back. But one rider was different from the start. When Tabby was running wild, Shy Cage was there. When tragedy tore her life apart, he helped her piece it back together. And now, Tabby's thinking about much more than friendship . . .
Tabby is everything Shy's ever wanted, but everything he thinks he can't have. She's beautiful, smart, and as his friend's daughter, untouchable. Shy never expected more than friendship, so when Tabby indicates she wants more- much more-he feels like the luckiest man alive. But even lucky men can crash and burn . . .
Self-published contemporary romance author Ashley (The Gamble) captivates in her first outing for Forever with this gritty novel about a band of bikers in Denver and the women who love them. Tabitha "Tabby" Allen is the daughter of the Chaos Motorcycle Club's president, and she's therefore off limits to its members. That doesn't stop rough-and-tumble Parker "Shy" Cage from putting her on a pedestal. After Shy clumsily tries to tame Tabby's teenage wildness, the two part company for years until Tabby's fianc is killed in a car accident and Shy helps her rebuild her life. Sparks fly, and the two quickly fall in love. But there are plenty of social obstacles to the romance on both sides. While the book's frequent jumps forward in time are irritating, Ashley more than makes up for it with a cast of characters who grab the heartstrings and never let go. This no-holds-barred, sensuous page-turner neatly sets the stage for a sequel.
So good I read it twice
Love this book, these series. There is so much story to these characters. Beautifully written!!
Chaos series off to a great start
Well, I wasn't really sure what to expect from Own the Wind as Kristen's first book with a publisher. I wasn't sure how it would change her voice. A few things were noticeable to me: fewer rapid fire streams of consciousness, fewer repetitive phrases or words, and better lead character development unfolding gradually in fewer words. The flow of the book was excellent, the commitment of the authenticity of the characters was consistent, and the reader has to really pay attention to some of the dialogue from the beginning to understand a few things in the end, which I loved. I was very pleased with this book and enjoyed it thoroughly.
Just not happening for me
I tried to stay interested in the book but could not. Got about 300 pages in and had to stop. At some points I felt like I was reading “slang” talk.
