Blurb: Once upon a time, Carissa Teodoro believed in happy endings. Money, marriage, motherhood: everything came easy–until she woke up to the ugly truth about her Prince Charming. Now a struggling single mom stranded by flat tire, Carissa’s pondering her mistake when a vaguely familiar knight rides to her rescue on a ton of horsepower.
In high school, Carson Steele was a bad boy loner who put Carissa on a pedestal where she stayed far beyond his reach. Today, he’s the hard-bodied biker known only as Joker, and from the way Carissa’s acting, it’s clear she’s falling fast. While catching her is irresistible, knowing what to do with her is a different story. A good girl like Carissa is the least likely fit with the Chaos Motorcycle Club. Too bad holding back is so damned hard. Now, as Joker’s secrets are revealed and an outside threat endangers the club, Joker must decide whether to ride steady with Carissa–or ride away forever…
Review: Kristen Ashley does badass like no other. Most, if not all, of my favorite characters were written by her. This is one of my favorite series by her and this book was just as awesome as the rest.
I love both Joker and Carissa. I wasn’t sure at first how much I’d like her because she seemed pretty much the Cinderella type that needs the man to take care of and rescue her, but she ended up totally not being that person. I love how she found her backbone yet still stayed a sweet and caring person.
I also loved that we get to see so many other characters that we love, even bits from their perspective. That is one of the coolest things about how Ms. Ashley writes in that she allows her different series to intermingle the characters. We even got to hear from Knight in this one.
I would have loved to have seen Carissa’s lawyer take down the jackwad ex-father-in-law, but a book just cannot contain all that goodness without severe addiction concerns.
Absolutely loved this one and it will be getting added to my favorites list.
