Ride Steady by Kristen Ashley

Date Read: July 2015

Genre: Romance, Suspense

The ride of her life . . . Once upon a time, Carissa Teodoro believed in happy endings. Money, marriage, motherhood: everything came easy---until she woke up to the ugly truth about her Prince Charming. Now a struggling, single mom and stranded by a flat tire, Carissa's pondering her mistakes when a vaguely familiar knight rides to her rescue on a ton of horsepower.Climb on and hold tight . . . In high school, Carson Steele was a bad boy loner who put Carissa on a pedestal where she stayed far beyond his reach. Today, he's the hard-bodied biker known only as Joker, and from the way Carissa's acting, it's clear she's falling fast. While catching her is irresistible, knowing what to do with her is a different story. A good girl like Carissa is the least likely fit with the Chaos Motorcycle Club. Too bad holding back is so damned hard. Now, as Joker's secrets are revealed and an outside threat endangers the club, Joker must decide whether to ride steady with Carissa---or ride away forever . . .

First Thought when Finished: After my crack reading (all in 2 months) of Rock Chicks, Mystery Men, and Chaos –I can hands down say Ride Steady by Kristen Ashley was the most emotionally gut wrenching, heart swelling, couple enduring book of the bunch!

I am hiding the rest of the review because to explain what I LOVED about this book some of the things MAY be considered SPOILERY

View Spoiler »

Where I stand with her series that I have read (favorite to least)

1: Chaos is at the top (2 of the 3 have been outstanding)–also really count Motorcycle Man as more of this series (it was the best Dream Man read)
2: Rock Chicks (those were fun)
3: Dream Man (those drove me bonkers)

Crack y’all Crack! These just have to be streamlined but now I wait *sigh*!

  1. I’ve always shied away from her books but this one sounds like I would like it – mostly because of what you mentioned in te spoilers.

  2. Wow! 4.75 stars? I’ve seen so many 5 star reviews for this one, but I wondered about them being legit. I guess they are. KA must have knocked this one out of the park, and your review makes me want to fall off the KA crack wagon I’ve been on. πŸ˜‰

    • I think this is the best one I have read by her and even though I think they are crack–I am kind of hard on her too. That being said—I have *heard* (because I have gotten to them yet) that while this had all the Chaos things *love those guys*–it was written more emotionally tailored like the Colorado Mountain series. Again-I don’t know but it was more emotionally based πŸ™‚

    I loved this one, too. The only reason I gave it an A- instead of an A was your reason A). I have not actually read a book of hers that I didn’t like. I still have some to go, but I’m looking forward to the journey.

  4. AHHH YES!!! Her books are definitely like crack Felicia! I gorged myself on a impressive chunk of her backlist last year and it was awesome. It’s been a while since I’ve read anything of hers though so I can’t wait to pick this one up. Love me some Chaos πŸ˜‰

    • I am waiting on my library to get the Mountain series. Then after reading this one I now need to read the freaking anti-hero ones (the pimp with a heart of gold—Knight) πŸ™‚
