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....

Audiobooks are relaxing and 'food for the soul'.
This is my second Kristen Ashley book and she is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors. Her writing is brilliant. You become a part of her stories. I am eagerly anticipating listening to another one of her books. For this one in particular, Shy is the "bomb". Bad Ass to the Bone! He is loyal just as strongly as he loves. It was an added bonus to have some cameos from Mystery Man. Elvira is one of my favorites.
I loved this book. I was sucked in by the narration. I could actually pictured the characters Shy and Tabby in my head. I was never into a book about a bike gang. After listening to this I am now.
I don't know. I think so though.
Mah. Not really.
Yes, anything about the parenting.
This is a story of two people who come to terms that life sucks and are hung up on the small stuff.
First time listening to this contemporary author. I'm not quite certain I'd be able to read it, but I sure enjoyed listening to it. She writes a TLC romance with badass Alpha's who love and care and are rough. I might even check out her "shaded" books which says a lot about how much I liked this author's writing style. I can't believe this is her first big publishing deal, but then again, reading upcoming and indies makes me think publishers are idiots for not picking up some books. It was awesome!
However, this narrator did not not do it justice: her voice changes were often non-consistent with the narrative voice she used in the story. I'd give her 2-3 stars. Too bad she narrates the next one and there is a bit of it here. Hop sounds like he is talking through clenched teeth. I'll be reading it on kindle.
Overall, It's a 4 star book, one I really liked, so why did I give it 5 stars?
Denver Broncos baby!
With that, here is mile high salute to Kristen Ashley! I so totally dig it.
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.
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.
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.
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. :)
I've been an avid reader since I was a child. I love different types of writing styles and I am never afraid to try new authors.
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.
I loved beyond words "Mystery Man"/. Own the Wind made me grind my teeth. First the narrator was just not a voice I could listen to for very long but I did try to get through it for the story. This narrator sounds angry all the time. The mood of the book was affected for me. Secondly it was repetitive with almost everything. I love good dialog, Mystery Man had it and this one did not. Also I guess I am not a fan of "Biker Speak" because it was not something I could get into. The story came out flat with what I can only describe as too much filler. This author can write a wonderful book but for me this was not it. I know this author has many books out there published but I require audible books.
At first I had a problem with the narrator, feeling she had the wrong voice...but then I realized she has two different speech patterns for 1st and 3rd person narrating. It rook about 4 chapters to figure this out and once I did I was enjoying the story. Story lacks the intensity of other KA series...but still a very good book.
In this instance I preferred the written version. I felt the character narration was flat and did not allow me to connect to the characters .
Good story . Narrative better male voices better. Like Chaos and the interspersing with Nightingale and DPD. After mixing gonna have to try to figure if the series is over. Like the characters a lot. Hoping there's more
This novel didn't have as many funnies as I usually get from a KA read. However it didn't need them. Don't second guess it, just buy it. You'll enjoy the ride...
