Again I don’t remember this one at all
I enjoyed this one, it was great seeing Lanie get her man. This one takes place around the same time that the first one is happening so we are able to see behind the scenes of parts we only glimpsed in the first book.
I loved Hop. He again wasn’t overbearing to me. He did fight for what he wanted and both of them had tempers at times and were stubborn, so they went back and forth a few times as they worked things out. It was hard at times because I could actually see both sides of the argument. I did enjoy that he didn’t discuss a lot with Tack and kept Lanie’s confidence.
I liked Lanie too. I liked that she stood up for herself where her work was concerned and didn’t let him interfere.
Looking forward to continuing on.
Told from first person point of view (Lanie) FIRE INSIDE follows the building relationship between Lanie and Hop. Lanie’s history with the Chaos MC has resulted in the near death of her best friend Tyra (Tack’s old lady), and with it comes the guilt and knowledge that she placed her best friend in harm’s way. Lanie had refused to listen to reason, and found herself caught between the man she loved and the friend she didn’t want to lose. Fast forward several years, and Lanie finds herself looking for a one-night stand with the CHAOS enforcer Hop Kincaid, never thinking to lose her heart to another alpha, bad boy. What ensues is Hop’s seduction of Lanie as Lanie continues to battle her inner demons, the guilt about the attempt on Tyra’s life, and a family history of betrayal and heartbreak.
The storyline conflict focuses on Lanie’s inability to move forward following the murder of her fiancé, and the near death of both Lanie and her best friend Tyra. Lanie and Hop’s relationship begins to venture into a sense of permanency but Lanie doesn’t want anyone at CHAOS to know about her relationship with Hop-a secret everyone knows but the two people in charge. The $ex scenes are intimate and erotic; Hop knows his way around a woman’s body and her heart.
FIRE INSIDE is a story about family, love, betrayal and friendship. The premise is engaging; the characters animated; the happily ever after very sweet and predictable, but saying that FIRE INSIDE is more of a story of erotic romance than it is about the CHAOS MC. The storyline focuses more on the building relationship; Hop and Lanie’s pasts and dysfunctional family chaos but had very little to do with Club business except by way of mention and the build up to a show down with Benito Valenzuela. I will also add there was quite a bit of duplicity and redundancy in the storyline text-something I think should have been caught by a good editor or beta reader.
The CHAOS series by Kristen Ashley is not (so far) a graphically violent series. Much of the violence remains in the background or implied. I have read some series where the violence, blood shed and abuse against women is very explicit and ultimately very difficult for some readers to absorb. Kristen Ashley writes a series about alpha males and the women they love. All of Kristen’s men are protectors, lovers, bad boys and hard, but not so hard that their softer sides are easily reached and caressed.
Hop cannot believe Lanie, he agrees but is worried she will expect more. What he didn't expect was that he wants more, he wants to get her out of his system. Hop quickly realizes though he wants more with Lanie, he wants it all. However she has walls around her that he is determined to break through. Lanie is falling for Hop hard, but can she let go of her past to build a future?
This was beautiful. Lanie is a broken woman and she holds it all in. I loved the way Hop dealt with Lanie, she pushed and pushed and he let her but did not budge. Had a few surprises and as always I could not put this book down. Talented author who continues to write amazing stories.
The plot was complex and twisted up and nothing was what it seemed, as Hop and Lanie both fought to overcome the demons from their own troubled pasts before they could make a go of being together in a permanent relationship.
It was funny at times (Lord those Chaos men are bossy!) and sexy as well as being full of rich family history and tackled the issues that always cause problems between men and women (as well as parents and their kids).
Get it while it's on sale...this price is lowest that I've ever seen it and worth the read.

At times I wanted to give Lanie a bit of a shake but you have to bear with her, she's not had it easy her family have issues, she was in love with a guy who had issues, she's in love with a guy that's causing her issues although on the latter she makes life difficult for herself by being secretive!
Hop has also had a bad experience with a woman, but he wants Lanie to take a chance on him like he will for her but she's reluctant so he guards his feelings which as usual causes all sorts of paranoia and the does he doesnt he care to keep running through Lanie's head. I think as a reader we all know exactly what Hop thinks about Lanie!
Read this is you like bikers, angst, over-protective male, argumentative female, kick ass best friends!
I've had to put my biker mission on hold because I need to savour Hop for a little while and consider his tache, tattoos and tucking in for a little while before I cheat on him with another biker!
I am so loving this series - Chaos - but then something that was spawned from Motorcycle Man (Dream Man series) could have no other effect on me. Everything to do with Tack *heart flutter* would always be a positive for me.
However I must admit that after reading Own the Wind - Shy and Tabby's story (the first book in this series) I was a little reticent to learn the next book would be Hop and Lanie's story. Not because I didn't love them (they are Chaos family after all!) but because of what went down with them in Motorcycle Man. Hopper came across as a serial cheater and a player and Lanie as an over the top drama queen. Yes both had been through some series crap but I didn't want to cheer them on - they were kind of a secondary second character (if that makes any sense) and I was wondering how KA would be able to build their story.
Well I should not have had any doubts and I should know by now after all these years of reading KA that she would deliver.
Lanie has been more or less a recluse for the last seven years - yes she has built up her business, kept close with Ty-Ty her BFF and the Chaos family but she has stayed clear of any man. She cannot give her heart again to any man after the way it was crushed by her fiancé who got himself whacked by the Mob. However Lanie has kept her eye on Hopper Kincaid and when she needs an itch scratching she propositions him at one of the Chaos Hog Roasts with an offer he can't but tries to refuse.
Hopper can't believe that this beautifully, classy, rich woman is offering him a one night only, no strings attached, passion fest. One lip touch in his room and all bets were off and the light was ignited. A one night only leads to a fourteen nights pants off!
However with both Hop and Lanie having deep "issues" it becomes apparent that the love-in would soon have a spanner thrown in the works and the doubts creep in leading to some explosive stand offs. Oh what stand offs they were with the scenes played out really gave me some serious flip floppities, some bad snotfests, and some happy clappy moments.
The development of themselves and the relationship was a joy to read through. The amazing thing for me was I got to 90% and suddenly realised there was no shootings, stabbings or kidnappings but I seriously, SERIOUSLY did not think the book lacked anything. It was lovely to read a whole book about the relationship without the sub plots. I think the backstory of both provided sufficient drama without anything else being poured into the mix. Well played KA!
Of course we still had some of Lanie's drama but because here we find out more of her life story it weaves well into the book and I got to love her. As for Hop (`tache, patch, cut, and ass) he was gorgeously bad ass for me. He is up there with Tack (and for those who know me that is saying some serious praise) and straight to the top of the Lush List! Yes even with knowing how the "cheating with the skank" went down and what really happened all those years ago and what Mitzy did, well it cleared the way for Hopper "Hop" Kincaid to be my Lushness of the year so far.
So do I like this book? No. I LOVE this book and I LOVE this series. A totally high five rating for me. Babe.
Right at the beginning Hop and Lanie are centre stage and that's one thing I loved about this story it keeps it's focus on the main attraction. The two leads have a rather rocky relationship mostly due to Lanie's issues regarding the death of her fiancé who was murdered by the Russian mob, Lanie was shot as well. But that was eight years ago and she has still not come to terms with what happened.
I've given this book four stars but it is more like a three and a half for me. I just felt the plot has too many similarities to previous stories. Hop was very much like Tack, I liked him even if I didn't quite get everything he said. Lanie honestly I was not so keen on. She blew too hot and cold for me. The two kept their relationship a secret from everyone, but especially from Tack and Ty Ty. Why?
The sex scenes were hot and plentiful, and this a good addition to the series. But this is no way as good as KA's earlier stories such as Sweet Dreams or the Golden Dynasty

This book also clashes with 'Own the wind' and when Tack finds out about Hopper and Lannie, because they keep it a secret Tack, thinks of Lannie as one of his girls which is really sweet. But when he hears Hopper explain why they kept it a secret he is okay.
It's a great book, other things happen, and with these two people, they are not perfect but they are perfect to gather. I was so glad that Lannie, got her own book and her HEA.
I read some of the other reviews and I agree it didn't have the kookiness of Rock Chick, the drama of the Dream man series. It did though have some great characterization and strong writing focusing on the main plot and much less on sub plots as she usually does. This did, however, read smoothly.
The story of Lanie and Hop drew me in, there are unanswered questions but I guess they'll be answered in the next book - hopefully.
Another review criticized other characters such as Vance Crowe(Rock Chick) and Elvira (Dream man) appearing. I actually like it, it is a small world and -familiarity is a good thing!
It's not however a YA read.
I will definitely put it in my favourites and enjoy reading it again.
