Review

"[Kristen] Ashley captivates." (Publisher's Weekly)

"There is something about them [Ashley's books] that I find crackalicious." (DearAuthor.com Kati Brown 2012-01-00)

"I felt all of the rushes, the adrenaline surges, the anger spikes... my heart pumping in fury. My eyes tearing up when my heart (I mean... her heart) would break." (On Motorcycle Man) (Maryse.net Maryse's Book Blog 2012-01-00)

About the Author

Kristen Ashley grew up in Brownsburg, Indiana, and has lived in Denver, Colorado, and the West Country of England. Thus she has been blessed to have friends and family around the globe. Her posse is loopy (to say the least) but loopy is good when you want to write.

Kristen was raised in a house with a large and multigenerational family. They lived on a very small farm in a small town in the heartland, and Kristen grew up listening to the strains of Glenn Miller, The Everly Brothers, REO Speedwagon, and Whitesnake.

Needless to say, growing up in a house full of music and love was a good way to grow up.

And as she keeps growing up, it keeps getting better.

More About the Author

Kristen Ashley was born in Gary, Indiana, USA and nearly killed her mother and herself making it into the world, seeing as she had the umbilical cord wrapped around her neck (already attempting to accessorise and she hadn't taken her first breath!). Her mother said they took Kristen away, put her Mom back in her room, her mother looked out the window, and Gary was on fire (Dr. King had been assassinated four days before). Kristen's Mom remembered thinking it was the end of the world. Quite the dramatic beginning.

Nothing's changed.

Kristen grew up in Brownsburg, Indiana and has lived in Denver, Colorado and the West Country of England. Thus, she's blessed to have friends and family around the globe. Her family was (is) loopy (to say the least) but loopy is good when you want to write. They all lived together on a very small farm in a small farm town in the heartland. She grew up with Glenn Miller, The Everly Brothers, REO Speedwagon and Whitesnake (and the wardrobes that matched).

Needless to say, growing up in a house full of music, clothes and love was a good way to grow up.

And as she keeps growing, it keeps getting better.

This was my first Kristen Ashley novel and I really enjoyed it. The story is interesting and all of the characters, including the many secondary characters, are well-defined. The hero is super possessive and super dominant. Yes, he has issues but I loved him and how protective he was. Warning - he is not at all PC. The heroine is super girly but never pushed over into annoying territory for me. This is a long novel - over 10000 Kindle locations - but it never dragged. Very glad I took the chance on this one.

Mystery Man was the land of BADA$$ES and the testosterone was overflowing everywhere, I would be surprised after reading this that I don't have hair on my chest. The story had an explosive romance and tons of action plus MAJOR BONUS! another gentle and perfect epilogue.

Hawk, the hero, was Gwen's mystery man and she had been his booty call for a year and a half. He had said like 3 words to her at a restaurant, I think they were"Are you coming?" After that he would just show up in her bed give her lots of "O's" coupled with wild romps and then be gone in the morning. Gwen struggled with her conscience and this pattern, but in the end gave in to it even though this submissive behavior was so far from Gwen's spunky personality. Then Gwen is threatened and dragged into a big mess because of her trashy sister's illegal actions. Gwen marches into a biker shop that houses a very dangerous biker gang to find out where her sister is. She catches the eye of the gang leader who is HOT! then is interrogated by a police detective who is HOT! and then her midnight mystery man shows up (who is HOT!) to scold her. Once Hawk opens his mouth to tell her she has just created a big mess she decides she doesn't like his high handedness and they are over...he shouldn't have opened his mouth. Hawk laughs at her, loves the attitude that she gives him and realizes how much he has missed out of over the pass year and a half with not getting to know her. Such parody, it was hysterical.

Hawk was killer, beyond arrogant, I mean if there was a scale from 1 to 10 he would be like 100 and arrogant not just confident.

I have enjoyed many books from Kristen Ashley, she is a great author and I will keep on reading her books.

--- Will include spoilers, so don't read if you don't want to know - - -

But as much as I love alpha males, dominating and protective, this one is such a jerk, I had trouble finishing the book. The heroine has been having a sexual relation with the hero for a year and a half, she does not even know his name and he just shows up in her house a night for a couple hours, once in a while(!!!) When troubles come knocking on her door, he finally steps up and comes to her rescue. The first time they meet in day time, he won't even tell her his name because he does not want any type of relationship besides the sexual one they have been having. However he knows everything about her, then later we come to find out that the hero also says there were other women at the same time. Now he wants a relationship and won't take no for an answer, not that the heroine is all that much convinced she should say no. She does tell him it is over several times, but lets him convince her in less than a minute every time, I can't stand her either, even though she is cute and funny like much of all Ms Aslhey's heroines, she has no back bone and lets him roll all over her. Later in the book we find out that he has lost his family and that is why he behaves this way. The heroine finally gives him hell, but again it does not last very long. Don't expect any good groveling scenes. It ends on a nicer note, but still, I am not a big fan of this hero.
Big disappointment for this book, I will start reading another one of the same author and hope that they will be as good as Rock Chick, Sweet Dreams or even Wildest Dreams, books you can enjoy if you like bossy, possessive alpha males and funny heroines :)

I really hope people read the reviews with low ratings before they buy this book! I got half-way (52%) through this book before I had to stop.

The main female character of this book is pathetic, shallow, and one-dimensional. Her male counterpart is a bull-headed, uncouth, chauvinistic pig (that is not an exaggerated description, either). The interaction between these two might be the most frustrating thing you'll ever read, and you surely will never want to read the words "babe" or "baby" ever again. I would be terrified if a woman would ever actually let a man treat her the way this character lets men treat her in this book.

This book is filled with drama that would be fit for The Jerry Springer Show. To be honest, that is what drove me to stop reading. Don't get me wrong, I love an exciting plot. But this is not plot, this is just random drama that doesn't contribute to the story line. By the time I got halfway through it, I wished that I had the paper copy of the book rather than electronic, so I could burn the damn thing and at least get SOME sort of satisfaction from it.

The editing of this book was as pathetic as the heroine's personality. The book is so badly written, I had to re-read sentences to understand what it was saying. This includes misspelled words, run-on sentences, grammatical errors, and missing punctuation. Furthermore, the writing is terrible! I am not adverse to swear words in writing, and actually prefer it when it adds to the dialogue, but the swearing in this book is unnatural and awkward. I felt like I was reading a valley girl's diary rather than an actual published work of literature.

For the sake of your sanity, don't waste your money on this book. There are much better romances out there.
