Publisher's Summary

Too hot to handle...

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....

    "Swoon-worthy Biker Bad Boys"

    Another brilliant listen by Kristen Ashley. I love her biker bad boys and this one was at the top of my list with alpha male hotness. In this book we have the biker princess Tabby (daughter of the MC’s president) and swoon-worthy Shy (the biker club brother). They’ve both been secretly in love with each for some time but tragedy brings them together in a most unexpected way. This of course leads to lots of steamy sex and a HEA. I loved seeing characters from previous books; Tack, Tyra, Tex, Mitch, Hawk, Lee and the very fabulous Elvira! I love the Chaos MC! Come on Audible, bring us Motorcycle Man please!

    Even though this is not her first book, it could still be read as a stand-alone. I will warn you that Kristen Ashley has a very unique writing style and not all appreciate her stiff dialogue or run on sentences. I for one love it.

    5 star listen!

    "Motor cycle Alpha Hotness......."

    It took me a little while to adapt to the biker lingo but once I did I was hooked! I'm warning you that you need to keep an open mind. This writer is bringing you into this biker world which means they have their own language. Lets just say they express themselves differently. The plot kept me interested. In a way, it reminded me of the show Sons of Anarchy. This biker club is about loyalty and family. Shy & Tabby are some serious hotness!! Shy is all Alpha but deep down has a sweet side. They took forever to show their true feelings for each other but worth it when the story ends with an HEA! This book had tragedy, comradery, passion, badassness, and heartfelt moments. I happened to like the book and found all the characters interesting. I will continue with the series.

    Story
    "Ah.. Ma.... ZING!!!!!! Simply Amazing!!!!"

    WOW WOW WOW! I was so not expecting this. This book was so dang good, I took off work early to finish listening. That bad review that say the narrator was not good... was dead wrong. You can totally tell males from females and none of the characters sound alike. Now you can tell when the narrator recorded it, then went back later and re-recorded a part... but it is such a slight shift in volume, that it doesn't even take away from the story.

    I like how this book starts... The prologue, which is like 2 chapters long, is read from Shy's POV. Shy is such a bad-to-the-bone...biker boss! He maintains his total badassness the entire book long. When I say the entire book, the entire. I loved it. This writer stayed so true to her characters.. ALL of the THEM...! I loved it when Shy and his brothers, totally kicked Tab's boss butt. That is what bikers do... Then the scene when Shy is face to face with the guy that murder his parents. See.. this is what I am talking about. THis is how you write a biker story.. Shy was not playing around... he was Chaos through and through... then OMG.. then chapter when the brothers asked for his cut (his colors) OMG!!! OMG!!

    Now... Tab or Tabby, so after the prologue, the book is read from Tab's POV, but other characters are POV are read in third person. This is such an interesting way of writing... I loved it. So, Tabby is the princess of the mc, and I love how she got out of the life, without ever really leaving, then her relationship with Shy...so great from beginning to end. But the ultimate angst is when she saw Shy with his girl... OMG! Then when she decides to leave... DUDE! The way Shy comes over and tells her that she is not leaving... I was blushing, gushing and just wrapped all up in it. Sooo Good..

    THis is like a beginning to end life story for these two characters. Great ending too. So much action, I never wanted to skipped...just a straight through listen. It is long, really long...but so worth it.

    Narration was awesome. I don't usually give 5, unless a book blows me away, and this blew me away. I have been hunting for biker books for the last 2 days.

    A buy or credit. Yes Yes...

    "More Kristen Ashley!"
    What did you love best about Own the Wind?

    Kristen Ashley 's story though it helps to have read the earlier books in this series.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I was looking forward to reading Tabby's story.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    This was the weakest part. Very little distinction between characters. Little emotion. Not like a true professional reader where you are not distracted by the reading of the story.


    Any additional comments?

    I hope that there will be more Kristen Ashley books on audible. I really don't like it when they start in the middle of a series. Hopefully audible will improve the narrator and offer Ashley 's complete series including Rock Chicks, 'Burg series, Colorado series, Dream Man series, and Unfinished Heroes.

    "Amazing!!! Simply Amazing!!!"

    If you are looking for a story with depth and realism then most anything written by Kristen Ashley is for you! The trials and tribulations of Shy and Tabby will suck you in from the first word to the last! As always the narrator can make or break book. With that same thought a great narrator can make the book even better and Angela Starling made this a great book. Her voice for the characters really brought them alive!

    My ONLY complaint is that this is a spinoff series. Unless you read Motorcycle Man from the Dream Man series some of these characters won’t make a lot of sense. I sincerely PRAY that Audible or whoever decides audiobooks produces the Dream Man series and anything else by Kristen Ashley!!!!

    "Could have been better"

    I've eaten up quite a few books by Kristen Ashley (including this one) so I knew what to expect -- over the top biker dudes and their old ladies, the DRAMA, the language, the crazy, the sex. Ashley is an enormously popular author for good reason. She knows how to deliver the whole package.

    So I'm wondering why this plum package was entrusted to a newbie narrator. Sigh. Angela Starling is no better than adequate. Specifically, she doesn't differentiate at all between characters; all her men sound just alike as do all her women. No. No. No. Her male voices are not masculine. Smooth-talking hero Shy is read in a staccato monotone. No. No. no. Ashley's books are decidedly hero-centric and a narrator who fails to get that is not up to the challenge. Sad for the wasted opportunity.

    "OH, PLEASE PLEASE.... CAN'T I GIVE IT MORE STARS"

    Firstly, although I haven't listened to them, this Biker series should follow the Dream Man Series and had I of known this I would definitely have listened to those first as characters etc., were mentioned that had me a bit lost. But nevertheless, and despite this, it was an AWESOME listen.

    Shy, a swoon-worthy sex God and babe magnet from the Chaos MC has had enough of all his brothers looking after the beautiful, smart and untouchable Tabby, the daughter of Chaos' President, and teaches her the hard harsh lessons of life that will, unfortunately, come back to haunt him one day. Tabby has had a crush on Shy since she was 16 but now at 19, he shocks her and rocks her world so much that she changes, settles down and is finally happy that is..... until tragedy strikes.

    This very touching, gripping, emotional, passionate, sad, sexy, heartbreaking and riveting listen spans 3 years in the lives of bikers their friends and lovers and it takes a very talented author to transport you into becoming a willing bystander as all the exciting drama, loveable characters, brilliant dialogue and vivid imagery captivates, enthrals and entertains you.

    Worth a credit? It's a romantic story of growth, forgiveness, acceptance and love where the scenes will have you sympathising, sighing, clapping, crying and eventually grinning and smiling - so a credit very well spent.

    "Loving the Chaos!!"

    After KA's Dream Man series, I knew I'd buy anything this author put out. If you haven't listened to that series, I'd encourage starting there, at least, Kane's story, just for perspective. This spin off of Chaos MC has so much potential with all the interesting bikers and the unique storylines that can be developed. Tabby was a force to be reckoned with in Kane's story so I knew this one would be a winner. I wasn't a fan of the narrator, but, the content and the romance factor of this book definitely supersedes mediocre voice characterization. I loved how much Shy and Tabby loved each other from the very beginning, even if they were in denial. If you love motorcycle romance, this should be at the top of your purchase list!

    "Pleasantly Surprised"

    I wasn't sure if I would like this book but I am so thankful I took a chance. It's edgy, flows well and I absolutely loved the interaction between Taby and Shy. I will say there is quite a bit of testosterone in this book and if you are not into dominate men this may not be the book for you; however I loved the men. I especially loved that Taby doesn't let Shy run all over her.

    I will definitely be recommending this book to friends.

    "Love Kristen Ashley - Just Love Her!!!"
    What did you love best about Own the Wind?

    This is the first in the Chaos Series and it's wonderful to read about characters that we got to know in prior novels. Shy is totally alpha, Tab is totally cool and the MC is one hell of a family. The story of these two coming together is a great story.


    What other book might you compare Own the Wind to and why?

    If you love this, read her other novels Mystery Man, Motorcycle Man and Law Man to read about some of the related characters. One thing I love about Kristen Ashley is that she keeps her characters around so you can revisit them in other novels.


    What does Angela Starling bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I read this book before I read it - it was a little difficult for me with the way she did the male voices but overall it was very well done. It just took me a couple hours to forget that it was a woman doing the voice instead of just taking in the book. And if you know who Tex is ... maybe you can sympathize with me that there was no way a female reader could do his voice. I think this series would be better served with a male/female duo reading it or just a male reader.


    Any additional comments?

    I love Kristen Ashley's books - I've read them all. Some of them are in genre's I don't usually prefer and guess what? I still love them. All I can say is if you find a KA book, you need something to read, you won't be disappointed by her. :)
