First Thought when Finished: Fire Inside by Kristen Ashley was definitely more appealing to me than the last outlaw biker story I tried! (Would just note that while these are/were “outlaws” they are now not on the wrong side of the law which made them likable)

The Good:

1: I loved that both of these characters were above 30! So rare!
2: I liked that they both had things to work through. Legit life stuff that comes with age and experience.
3: I liked that Lanie refused to change who she was based on who was with.
4: I liked that she also didn’t care what other people thought. She was with who she wanted.
5: Lanie’s moment with her family had me fist-pumping!

The Meh:

1: The last argument between them almost made me wish they would break up. I just didn’t see how it was going to last long term. Don’t get me wrong, I was rooting for their HEA but it was like one argument too many.
2: OMG while they were hot, they were also overly dramatic which got a little draining.
3: I think because I came into the series on book 2 of the spin-off that I was wanting a little more of the story outside of Lanie/Hop. I will get the rest from the library.
4: I cuss like a construction brat (because I am one) but occasionally I would have liked Hop to use his “big boy” words.
5: I wanted more honesty between the best friend and/or more girl time.

Final Thoughts: Good enough for me to seek out the original series and the first in this one. I need to see how the “let me take a few wires and cross them to get Hop in” fell in love!

  1. Ashley

    I’m a big fan of Kristen Ashley. I would definitely recommend Motorcycle Man – it’s the book that starts off this particular series. Like you, one of the things I love about her books is the fact that the majority of her characters are either right at 30 or even older. As I get older, it’s easier to relate. I always end up rooting for her characters though – even when they’re being so ridiculous!

  2. I’m not really a fan of the biker series either. I guess this sounds more promising than most but I’ll probably skip it unless there’s a big sale or it’s a freebie.
