"Ashley delivers a deeply emotional second installment of the Chaos contemporary romance series (after Own the Wind)... Punctuated by blistering-hot sex scenes and fascinating glimpses into the tough world of motorcycle clubs, this romance also delivers true heart and emotion, and a story that will stay with the reader long after the final page is turned."―Publishers Weekly, Starred Review, on Fire Inside

"There is something about them [Ashley's books] that I find crackalicious."―Kati Brown, DearAuthor.com

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.

The women, Mara, Gwen, LaTanya, are the perfectly flawed women. They hit us normal types where we live; perhaps like them we don't know how beautiful we are, or how much some man somewhere wants to be the one to bring out our sweetness. Or our laughter. To protect us. To make our lives easier. Pure, unadulterated fantasy.
Sure, Ms. Ashley's writing style is somewhat scripted: a) women who answer in "Uh's" and "Um's" (so swept away with the man), b) men who utter complete thoughts in one word answers, like "babe," or "Mara," c) constant interruptions by the Alphas who all have, apparently Ph.D's in psychology, specializing in women's issues, d) etc.
Basically, if it ain't broke, don't fix it.
So, if you can get passed the speech patterns and look deep into the story of the protagonists that are engaged in the current story, you'll see the nuances that make each of the stories different enough to be unique.
After all, these are Romance Novels. They are escapism enclosed between two covers. If a reader wants realistic romance, well, find an author that creates that sort of feeling for you. For me, the love, the whole acceptance of you as a person, with all your foibles and pimples, the desire to make me his...I'll take it.
I read a few reviews before reading this book. I'd heard great things about KA, but I really had no idea what to expect. Hence the reason to hit up the reviews. There is plenty of mixed feelings out there, but with a 4+ rating, I felt confident in my decision to read this.
Mystery Man is this mysterious, nameless man Gwen has been "sleeping" with for the past year and a half. She saw him at some restaurant/bar, he walked up, said "You comin' or what?" and that was the start to their sordid affair.
Gwen has a crazy sister, Ginger. she doesn't know how to keep her ass out of trouble and therefore Gwen finds herself smack dab in the middle of Ginger's stuff. What she thought was a smart move, she walked into Ride, base for the Chaos MC, to talk to her sister's boyfriend, Dog. It is here that she catches the attention of Tack and the rest of the MC. Turns out Ginger owes Tack over $2 million. Luckily, our heroine is a hot commodity who can turn heads because Tack offers her his protection. Lucky Lady.
Here's the line that turned me into a KA fan:
I turned to the silent biker boys behind me, saw them all smiling, found this scarier than them being scary....
Yep, KA had me hooked.
So, there's a turf war--mostly directed towards Gwen. She catches the eyes of Tack, Hawk (her MM sex god), and Mitch Lawson (the hot cop who takes on her case when her house is broken into). So, there's the awesome Alpha thing that women would swoon over, the pissing contests, the "she's mine, don't touch" banter, etc., etc.
Ginger is still out. She's still a piece of work. Not the good kind.
Apparently Gwen was married before. Before all of this with Hawk. Her dad was not a fan of the ex, Scott. Here's a great example: Oh my God! Did my father just call my mystery lover "son" after only knowing him for five seconds? He'd never called Scott "son." The only thing he ever called Scott was "Scott" and "a #pussy." I think I died when I read this! Freaking hilarious!
Oh, Gwen has awesome friends; The kind of friends I wish I had when it hit the fan. Cam, the straight-shooter. Tracey, the optimist. Troy, the guy who loves her, but never had the balls to tell her. And then Elvira. Man if she doesn't have her own book, I think I'll be disappointed.
So, you like funny, witty, sarcastic stories with hot , albeit tasteful, sex thrown in? Wanna dream man of your very own to think about while you sleep? Have a thing for alpha males?
Did you answer yes to any of those? Then grab the book and start reading. If you answered no, then go find something else to read because this book isn't for you. It is, however, for me and all of the other KA fans out there. I'm glad I'm in the know. Finally.
Anyone know where I can find myself a Tack? That man had me going from his very first scene.
The love between the two main characters was--surface level. I mean, how much of a relationship can I really expect when the premise is of strangers?
All that aside- it was well written. And man is this author funny. I enjoy laughing and this book made me laugh several times. If you want a light read with little commitment- try this one. It was fun.
