Publisher's Summary

She's ready for the ride of her life…
Lauren Grahame is looking to reinvent herself. After leaving her cheating husband, Lauren moves to Carnal, Colorado, and gets a job as a waitress in a biker bar called Bubba's. It's a nothing job in a nowhere joint… until Tatum Jackson walks in. Lauren has never seen a man with such good looks, muscles, and attitude. But when he insults her, Lauren doesn't want anything to do with him. Too bad for Lauren he's also the bar's part owner and bartender.
When the rough-around-the-edges Tate meets the high-class Lauren, he thinks she won't fit in at Bubba's. Yet there's more to Lauren than meets the eye, and Tate soon sets his mind on claiming her as his own. Before long, the desire burning between them is heating up the cold mountain air. But when violence strikes the town, Tate must reveal a dark secret to Lauren - one that may put an end to their sweet dreams.

What the Critics Say

"Kristen Ashley's books are addicting!" - Jill Shalvis, New York Times bestselling author "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 "I adore Kristen Ashley's books!" - Maya Banks, New York Times bestselling author "There is something about them [Ashley's books] that I find crackalicious." - Kati Brown, DearAuthor.com "With Brock's raw side contrasted with Tess's innocence, Wild Man delivers a passionate, opposites-attract romance." - Patricia Smith, Booklist ">"[Kristen] Ashley captivates." - Publisher's Weekly "I felt all of the rushes, the adrenaline surges, the anger spikes... my heart pumping in fury. My eyes tearing up when her my heart (I mean... her heart) would break." (On Motorcycle Man) - Maryse's Book Blog, Maryse.net

I'm sorry but it was a waste of time

Any additional comments?

At the end I got really annoyed with this story. I hate not finishing books, but it too much for me. What does it tell about the story if you fast forward sex scenes because you got bored with them? Everything can be a poison, it depends on the dose.

One of Kristen Ashley's best

I had already read this book on my kindle – three times – before I purchased the audio version so I was pretty certain I would like this book! That said, sometimes books do not translate well from written word to audio or visa versa. Fortunately, this is not one of those times. In fact this book is even better in audio because I am a fast reader, and audio forces me to slow down and listen to every single word of a story. With a badly written book this can be torture, but with a well written book with a good plot (like this one), this just adds to the enjoyment.

This is a classic Kristen Ashley romance – the sort of book that makes a reader into a lifelong fan of the writer. It involves an H and h both in their early 40s – a fabulous step that many romance writers fear to take – but a realistic acknowledgement that romance does not stop when you hit 39. In fact, putting the lead characters into this age group gives a real depth to their characters, involving their past experiences and the things that have shaped their personalities before we meet them.

The h came from a loving, stable background, but had run away from her life, family and friends to recover from a ten year marriage where her husband, apart from being unfaithful, had stealthily managed to diminish her self-worth, in order to make himself seem better.

She meets with bar owner H, whose life had been full of tragedy, mistakes, bad luck and bad decisions – the biggest of which was a long term toxic involvement with another woman, an involvement that was still a central issue in his life. Both H and h are cynical, wary of commitment, unwilling to get involved and, in different ways, both in the midst of re-evaluating the direction of their respective lifestyles.

This is a long book, but at no stage does it drag, or get boring. The relationship progresses, develops, is tested, and progressively strengthens, as both the H and the h come to terms with their past mistakes, and figure out what they both need from a partner to make a relationship work. The story also involves a murderer on the loose in the area, and this adds tension and keeps things moving forward at a good pace.

Highly recommended.
