Summary

Goodreads Author of the Year 2012, Nominee.

2012, Goodreads Reader's Choice Nominee, Best Romance.

She's ready for the ride of her life....

Lauren Grahame is looking for her bit of peace. 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 looks and attitude. But Tate does something Lauren doesn't much like and she 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, they can't deny the attraction that's pulling them together. But when violence strikes the town, threatening the women in it, their sweet dreams may come to an end.

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.

Babe

Like Max from the. previous book this is Tate’s favourite word. In fact they are the same person which isn’t bad.. They are loyal and loving. I liked the FMC in this book cos she is 42 just so nice to have a h who has lived life. So it was a good book and the narrator was good too.

5 stars once again!

Kristen Ashley is amazing. While this story had the same layout as the other story (just in a different city with different characters and background), you had suspense/murder, a high class lady getting out of a bad relationship only for the guy to come and try to get her back, and a tough mountain of a man. This one was a biker version to it. While having the same layout to the story, it didn't effect how much I enjoyed it. I love this series and am on to listen to the next!

Excellent, as always from KA!

Absolutely loved this story! I’m a huge fan of KA, mostly of her Chaos and other MC stories but thought I’d give this a go and was NOT disappointed, probably one of the best yet!

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.

Terrible and irritating book

I’m not sure how this book has good reviews ? It was a waste of time.
