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....

    Story
    "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.

    Story
    "Not so much...."

    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.

    Story
    "This may very well be an excellent book..."
    What would have made Own the Wind better?

    But I have no idea, because it sounds like it's being read by Siri. It's unlistenable. The premise sounds like a book that I might have enjoyed, but the reader sounds like a robot. Seriously? I'm so disappointed that I spent money on this...


    What could Kristen Ashley have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Find a better reader...


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Angela Starling?

    Anyone. Literally anyone else. She sounds like a lifeless robot.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    I have no idea. For all I know it could have been my favorite book of all time, but I can't listen to something that sounds like it's being read by a lifeless robot. I really hope Kristen Ashley didn't actually pay Angela Starling to ruin her book.


    Any additional comments?

    I really wanted to enjoy this book. And look, and I'm not in the habit of leaving unkind reviews, in fact this might be the first and only bad review I've ever left. But Angela Starling, and I'm sure she's a kind and lovely person in real life, completely butchered the reading of this book, to the point that it's actually unlistenable. I cannot and will not listen to an audobook that sounds like it's being read by Siri. No no no. Sorry, I'm sure Kristen Ashley put a lot of time and effort and heart into this, but I couldn't get though the first two minutes and that's just sad.

    "Emotional read"

    This story draws you in from the start and it never stops. It takes the reader on an emotional journey with it's sad and beautiful moments. This is a tie with Sweet Dreams.

    "MC club Chaos - Love this style of story"

    I have really enjoyed 2 other authors MC club books and wanted to try Own the Wind because I have ONLY heard Crazy good about Kristen Ashley.

    Well, the word is true...Kristen Ashley has written a great story with "Chaos" MC club. I really enjoyed getting to know Shy(Parker) and his "old lady" which is what they call their girlfriend/wife...I like how she tried to give back to their relationship and shy doesn't understand at 1st BUT in the end it was the right thing for her to do...

    I am a crazy nut for the TV show Son's of Anarchy and so I truly LOVE books about the MC..and if you do also you will NOT be disappointed...

    Story
    "Repetitive"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I don't know....I really can't imagine anyone capable of tolerating the amount of repetitive dialog.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Nothing by this author. This is my second attempt at a Kristen Ashley book, the first one was Mystery Man and I didn't like it any better. And perhaps I'm being hasty with my review considering that I haven't read/listened to any of her other work.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Own the Wind?

    I never finished the book, didn't even make it halfway before I said "enough!"

    "Was O.K."

    I purchased this book based on the stars and reviews; mistake. The story and character development was done well. It almost wants me to purchase the next book but I am going to save my credit. The narrator totally wrecked the book for me. There was no flow to the reading at all. Was very choppy and voices were lack luster at best. I would get the next book if the narrator was different. Bottom line; save your credit and buy the book.

    Story
    "Need new narrator"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    All Kristen Ashley books are awesome but not narrated like this!!!


    What didn’t you like about Angela Starling’s performance?

    No distinction between male characters and she yelled each line of male dialogue. I get these are alpha male bikers, but there is no way they speak to each to each other (and everyone else) like that all the time. It kinda made me hate Shy. (I've read this book before and didn't feel that way.) And Tyra is from Ohio, she doesn't have a southern accent. The narration frustrated me so much, that I couldn't finish listening, and I love Kristen Ashley books. This is not a reflection on the story, just the narration.

    Story
    "BEAUTIFUL, POWERFUL MC ROMANCE!"

    I've been on a Kristen Ashley binge lately, and part of that binge has ushered me into the motorcycle world of the Chaos MC. The Chaos MC is a world that is built upon a separate code of ethics, laws and yes, freedom. So, having been introduced to Tack (leader of the Chaos MC) in "Motorcycle Man (MM)," I was so excited to enter that world again through his daughter, Tabby and Shy's story--And what a story it was!!!

    We were introduced to the tall, tough and gorgeous Shy as the new recruit/prospect in MM. In "Own the Wind" he is a full-fledged, trusted member of the MC. He's definitely IN with the ladies as he exudes sex appeal, and is a magnet for the wild life. I was just head-over-heals over Tabby since she was first introduced as Tack's beautiful daughter with a wonderful personality, but who was beaten down emotionally and rejected by her mother. Fast forward a bit and you're right where this book begins…

    In this book, there are so many beautiful, tender moments that had me in tears. At the same time there were moments where I was pissed--like crazy pissed, and then there were parts where I was just so happy and fully immersed in the couple's romance. Part of that emotional ride comes with the process of melding a hardcore biker to a long-term committed, forever kind of love. How does that even happen???? Well, for Shy, it happened in stages and watching both Shy and Tabby's attraction for one another develop into a desperate, insatiable, binding kind of love was nothing short of amazing. I never lost interest in this book, the characters, or this MC world.

    My favorite gifts in this book included the peek into Tack and Tyra's life with their beautiful boys who were cherished by everyone (including their older sister Tabby). The side romances were also great---Hopper and his unlikely love (don't want to spoil that one!!!), and the scene with Elvira and Maleke (sp?) was fabulous!!! I was double spoiled with the appearance of all of the Dream Men (hero's from the previous series) in one of the most decisive, nail-biting moments in the book.

    Mostly, what I loved about this book was the hot, beautiful, smoldering love between Shy and Tabby. One aspect that made it more impacting was how, as readers, we're given the smoken-hot love that you would expect from a biker and his "old lady," but we're also given a share of the home life between Tabby and Shy, in which they have to figure out how to live with one another and their habits (laundry, toilet lid seat up etc.). The inclusion of how Shy and Tabby settle into their daily routines & tasks was great because it's what has made Ashley such an insanely, brilliant romance writer. In her books, she delivers very strong masculine men and beautiful, strong women who don't change one another. Just as Shy and Tabby, they learn to navigate the relationship by making compromises that are true to one another. Shy is caveman, street-smarts, biker bossy, but with Tabby's intelligent, sweet, sultry self….well, this match is the kind of Biker legend. I know I am sure to re-visit this audiobook regularly…that's how much I loved it!

    Narrator: Angela Starling was fabulous and executed the roles perfectly which made this one hot, little piece of biker audiobook. lol

    I hope Audible adds more of the books in this series!!! Please!!!
