"Ashley delivers a deeply emotional second installment of the Chaos contemporary romance series (after Own the Wind)...

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.

I could go on and on, but what's the point? Just know KA had me stepping out of my comfort zone with this one, and I'm so grateful she did. I consider this part of the Rock Chick clan regardless of how this series is titled. KA, you continue to rock my world with these characters in rereads, and I never get tired of them.
Title: Motorcycle Man, Author: Kristen Ashley, VERY steamy scenes with lusty language, some violence, lots of relationship angst, back and forth banter, life-threatening situation, unapologetic manho gets reformed by a feisty/sassy heroine, starts off as not romance safe read.
This is not different for Tack, he starts this book clearly on the side of grade A first class jerk. Tyra met Tack and knew right away he was the man for her. Unfortunately Tack did not feel the same way, to him she was just another great lay in a long line of great lays. So what was special to Tyra from the beginning was just another tequila induced sex-a-thon to Tack. Until she shows him the sass.
“So you’re good-looking, have great tats and a cool goatee. So you caught my eye and I caught yours.We had sex. Lots of sex. It was good. So what? That was then, this is now. We’re not going to play, not again. We’re done playing. I’m going to come in at eight, leave at five, do my job, and you’re going to be my scary biker dude boss, sign my paychecks, do my performance evaluations and maybe, if you’re nice, I’ll make you coffee. Other than that, you don’t exist for me and I don’t exist for you. What we had, we had. It’s over. I’m moving on and how I’m moving on is, I’m… working… this… job.”
She might has well waved a red flag in front of the bull because what do alpha men on the jerk side of the line like more than sass is a straight up challenge. Tyra just declared she was a challenge and now Tack is going to make sure he conquers that gauntlet that she has just thrown down.
I don’t really know anything about motorcycle clubs and the men in them but this was a pretty good and semi-tame intro to that world. The idea of brothers and going to the mat for all the men in your crew I definitely liked. Tack becomes great as a love interest even if he started a little on the wrong side of the jerk line. It is soon that we get the soft belly underneath the hard badass exterior.
”… I figure I’d find my way to beauty eventually. And I’d find absolution because I’d know, I earned the love of that woman, a woman who’s got so much to her it’ll take years to dig down and find the heart of her, that would be my reward.”
I love living in KA-Land where hot alpha men run rampant and there is always a touch of drama and pain with the joy and the hilarity of some of the situations. Motorcycle Man is filled with a great blend of these.
✔ - Semi Drunk Girl scene full of hilarity with the girls. Drunken Tyra is pretty funny when she freaks out.
✔ - 2 yes count them 2 abductions (I don’t care I love those)
✔ - Cameos from all the Dream Men *fans self*
✔ - Crazy Family/Best Friend drama
✔ - An Aunt with some unexpected Skills
✔ - Elvira doing cute babytalk to a future badass commando
✔ - Alpha mannerism that annoying at first turns out to be incredibly and adorably sweet. A man can put his hand on my throat anytime if it means what it means to Tack.
✔ - Showdown with the Russian Mob.
Add all that together and it is totally a great time in the making. I liked Tyra more than some of the other KA heroines and let’s face it she did not stand a chance against the onslaught when Tack decided she would be his. But it was fun to watch her make him work for it.
This was a great conclusion to the Dream Man series. But I’m incredibly happy that there is more Chaos and Tack in the Chaos series. I’m now ready to take a walk into the world of Motorcycle clubs and the badass alphas that live in that world.
*Interesting female lead. I got her--her hesitancy, her smarts, her inner turmoil, her desire for love.
*Interesting plot and action. While the story wasn't totally unique, it was interesting and had the right level of action.
*The sex. Only a handful of romance authors do the sex scenes right--KA is one of them.
The not so good:
*The African American female characters. A couple of other reviewers caught this too. They are stereotypes, from their clothing to their dialogue. KA, sweetie, just stop doing this. It's awesome to be inclusive, just like we all live with our girlfriends from every culture. But don't minimize that by making them stereotypes.
*The alpha overload. Tack is a super alpha. I get this is a fantasy romance. But when a man grabs a woman in anger, not passion, by the throat, then explains later that he was "feeling for a pulse," I have to call bull. I didn't buy the backstory part on this one. KA made it clear Tack was furious. He wasn't in a state of passion. This screams abuse to me, and my lovely read went right down the toilet after this little interlude.
I do really love KA books. For an alpha who does it super-right, read "Deacon." Now there's an alpha.
