Meet the intense and sexy bad boy bikers of the Chaos Motorcycle Club in Lanie and Hop's story from Kristen Ashley's New York Times bestselling series.
"I adore Kristen Ashley's books. Her stories grab you by the throat from page one and . . . continue to dwell in your mind days after you've finished the story."
-Maya Banks, New York Times bestselling author
Lanie Heron isn't looking for love-no surprise, considering her last serious relationship nearly got her killed. So when Lanie propositions Hop Kincaid, all she wants is one wild night with the hot-as-hell biker who patrols with the Chaos Motorcycle Club . . .
For Hop, Lanie has always been untouchable. She's too polished and too classy for his taste. But when she gives Hop the once-over with her bedroom eyes and offers him a night in paradise, he can't say no. And he doesn't regret it when he finds that Lanie is the best thing that's ever happened to him-in or out of bed. Now the trick will be to convince her of that.
Why O why was I so hesitant to read Fire Inside by Kristen Ashley before now?!
Being an emotional reader can sometimes suck huge donkey balls. If you can’t tell by the kicking of my own butt in that first statement I loved Fire Inside. In the reading of its story there might’ve been a moment between Hop and Lanie that I would’ve liked to not have taken place because I felt that it ramped up the drama between them two to maximum levels, but now that I’ve finished I wouldn’t change anything about Fire Inside.
Fire Inside wasn’t how I envisioned a story set in the Chaos world to be. First it was more of a contemporary romance than a romantic suspense as Own the Wind and Motorcycle Man, which I thought was odd since Own the Wind left things somewhat in the air about the whole Benito situation. The mood of Fire Inside was also different, I felt like Lani was placed in a protective bubble, understandably so after everything she went through in Motorcycle Man, and we were a fly on the wall of her enclosure where Hop was able to come in and become her perfect care giver and physician. When I tell you that in the previous stories centered around Chaos I never would’ve envisioned Hop as the understanding and compassionate one I’m telling you no lies. This man was so good to Lanie that I seriously wanted to cause bodily harm every time she would give into her fears and the monster she carried inside that was being fed by her guilt, the actions of her father towards her mother, and her bad choice in fiance who almost killed her with his actions.
I was afraid that Fire Inside would follow the same model of Own the Wind just because there wasn’t enough hints dropped as to what all Hop and Lanie’s story could be about, other than that they were hooking up and might be in love. My fears were unwarranted because it was like Ashley knew that both Lanie and Hop would need seclusion to learn about one another and grow as a ‘them’ without the chaos that could come with Chaos and their enemies. Because she took this care I was able to really fall in love with all the characters within Fire Inside and its story in a way I haven’t since the earlier books I’d read by Ashley.
Just like when I finished Soaring, I felt such peace and contentment with everything that was Fire Inside by Kristen Ashley. No stone was left unturned and nothing was left unsaid and left dangling in the wind. With the way this series is going I have no hesitation in continuing on with Ride Steady, regardless that it’s about another character I don’t know but at the same time am excited to read about.
Until next time…
