Tabitha Allen grew up in the thick of Chaos–the Chaos Motorcycle Club, that is. Her father is Chaos’ leader, and the club has always had her back. But one rider was different from the start. When Tabby was running wild, Shy Cage was there. When tragedy tore her life apart, he helped her piece it back together. And now, Tabby’s thinking about much more than friendship…

Tabby is everything Shy’s ever wanted, but everything he thinks he can’t have. She’s beautiful, smart, and as his friend’s daughter, untouchable. Shy never expected more than friendship, so when Tabby indicates she wants more–much more–he feels like the luckiest man alive. But even lucky men can crash and burn…

My Thoughts

The novel overall was good, it started out pretty awesome but I was really disappointed in the end. The ending was good too, but it just felt like it took forever to get there, and it dragged to the point where I admit I started skimming pages.

I loved Tabby from Motorcycle Man and I felt bad for her having to go through all that bullcrap her mom put her through. Her life also leading up to the start of her relationship with Shy was quite sad and there were a lot of tears shed.

This book did drag in the end with the bit about her friend and after everything that happened I’m very disappointed with the results = it was all for nothing!

Needless to say the end wasn’t my favourite part. But the beginning was.

I didn’t like how some of the characters acted in the novel, when Shy and Tabby came out of dating in secret. I thought the way they were treated was unjust and unfair considering their both consenting adults.

I feel my least favourite character who has made an appearance in ever novel I’ve read so far including this one is now to me an attention hog. Like why does she keep popping up!

My Rating: 3.5/5


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 multi-generational family. They lived on a 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 housefull of music and love was a goodway to grow up. And as she keeps growing up, it keeps getting better.
