Own The Wind

I realize that the title of this blog post may be a bit deceiving, given what we talked about in my last blog, however this post has nothing to do with Yoga, or Yogini or the Blazing Saddle Twins.

Today, we’re talking about OWN THE WINDthe first book in the Chaos Series by Kristen Ashley.

The Chaos Series picks up after the last book (Motorcycle Man) in the Dream Man Series.

Chaos is made up of badass, alpha, motorcycle guys who love Tequila, their women riding on the back of their bikes and hog roasts.

I wonder if the Chaos badasses used a roaster like this for their famous hog roast parties?

The gals from The Sassy, Classy and if you mess with them….Kick Assy Cool Chick Bunch joined me for a Buddy-Group read.

After discussing the book, some of the gals (a few of the gals had chosen the same quote as their sassy sister’s, so we didn’t duplicate) kindly provided their favorite quotes from the book. 

Also, Heidi Wiley is back synposizing and reviewing the book.

The hero, Shy, is lean and sculpted, gorgeously tattooed, drives a muscle-bike (I know there are muscle cars, pretty sure we can say muscle-bikes), he’s of course a badass hottie, and he’s been “claimed” by one of the Sassy Chicks; Michele Serabian. Shy is one of Michele’s favorite hero’s in the Chaos Series.

The heroine, Tabby, is smart, funny, attractive (how could she not be, her dad is Tack from Motorcycle Man), however, unlike her alpha-full-of-hotness father (well, Tack happens to be my favorite hero in the series) Tabby can NOT cook.

In honor of Tabby and Shy’s book and the passages in the book where Shy had to order pizza, because he couldn’t salvage Tabby’s culinary offerings, we’re having a pizza party on the blog this week, where I will be sharing homemade pizza recipes, plus a gluten-free recipe.

So y’all come back now, y’a here (a couple of the Sassy Chicks have been giving me Southern speak lessons….bless their hearts.) 🙂

A few favorite Quotes from Own The Wind

Gitte Doherty (Totally Booked Blog): “I never dreamed any fuckin’ dream,” he whispered, and the smile faded from her face as tears filled her eyes.

She understood him. “Shy.”

“Didn’t dream it, saw it, waited my time, and then you gave it to me.”

***

“May feel like you’re fallin’, Tabby, but remember, I’m at the bottom ready to catch you.”

***

Michele Serabian: So many to choose from! Of course, I have to go with Shy. (See told you Michele claimed him)

“You need a safe place just to forget shit and escape, I’ll give it to you. Tonight. Tomorrow. Next week. Next month. That safe place is me, Tabby.”

***

Kame: “Nothin’ to say, Tabby. Life was shit. Lost my family, years later, found a new family. Then life wan’t shit anymore.”

***

Kelly Bennett: “I have never, not once, not in my life, made love to any woman. Not once. Not until what I just did with you.”

***

Shy Cage never dreamed a dream still, he knew, with out a doubt since he was holding one in his arms, dreams were real.

Pat Fordyce: “It was the best day of my life, and a lot of that had to do with looking into my husbands eyes and seeing, plainly it was the best day of his.”

Selena’s: “Tyra told me you two went at it for days over a flippin’ fridge,” Tack said. “Badasses are capable of and don’t hesitate to throw down about a fridge. An IT geek does not care what kind of fridge you buy. An IT geek just thanks his lucky stars he’s gettin’ it regular.” 

Heidi Wiley’s Review

“Tack studied him. Then quietly, he stated, “She’s my only daughter, man.”

“And she’s the only woman I’ve ever loved, Tack,” Shy shot back instantly.”

OTWSynopsis:

Parker “Shy” Cage claimed he was an angel. In between wild women, work and maintaining a solid position within the Chaos Motorcycle club, he kept a watchful eye on Tabitha Allen, not because she was the daughter of Tack Allen, the president of the motorcycle club, but because she was the only woman that had ever had a hold of his heart.

Not thrilled about the company she was keeping; Shy decided to give her a lesson in tough love to convince her to stay on the straight and narrow.

However, in the process, he burnt the fragile bridge they had built between them.

It wasn’t easy for Tabby to grow up as Tack Allen’s only daughter. Members of Chaos followed a code of loyalty and protection and anyone who hurts their families, paid.

Tabby carved out a good life for herself with a profession she loved, surrounded by family and friends but she never forgot  the night at the Compound when Shy called her bluff, and broke her heart.

A few years later, when a tragedy shatters Tabby’s life, she turned to the only man that could help her pick of the pieces and make her whole again.

Shy wasn’t going to give her a sunny speech, instead he poured her a drink and listened. He wiped away her tears and held her until so he could absorb her heartbreaking pain.

But Shy wasn’t perfect and being close to Tabby tried his patience and self-control.

To him the only place she belonged was by his side. While Tabby tried to find new normal, Shy struggled to keep his feelings in check, his words soft and his touch gentle so she could reclaim the person she was always meant to be.

Review:

Not wanting to give these Alpha-bikers up after the conclusion of the Dream Man series, Kristen Ashley’s readers can be safely talked down from the ledge with Own the Wind, her first novel in the Chaos series.

She writes true to her passionate voice, while keeping her unconventional heroes strong willed, smokin’ hot and more than a little flawed. The raw emotion in this story drives the intense sexual intimacy between Shy and Tabby that readers won’t be able to get enough of.

Characters we already love make an appearance to remind us of the connection they have to others, whether it’s by blood, marriage or friendship. This story will capture your heart and take your wild side along for the ride.

I highly recommend Own the Wind and advise readers to start with the Dream Man series for the full effect.
