Publisher's Summary

The brother known as Hound has a reputation. He's all about cracking heads, having a good time, and when the Chaos Motorcycle Club needs someone to do the tough job, they call on him.

But Hound has a secret. He fell in love with a woman years ago. She's untouchable. Unattainable. And even when her status changes, for Hound, it remains the same.

Keely Black had it all early and lost it all not long after. Thrown into an abyss of loss and grief, she's faced a life of raising two sons alone and battling the rage at all that had been ripped from them.

And why.

Words spoken in anger open Hound's and Keely's eyes. For Hound, he sees he's wasted his life loving the wrong woman. Keely sees she's wasting her life not opening herself to the love of a good man.

everything was great except elvira

I am a black female and an actual old lady. what bothers me is elvira. its borderline racist
you might as we had her say "it's here to support the ladies but please massa dont be mad I's leave massa, please dont take the poke away i's be good"
in the last book she was in fiddy cent really. like um I know every lyric to guns and roses, buck cherry and Aerosmith
this character was to much of a stereotypical caricature
and keke well there should have been more of internal monologue other wise the romance seems forced and desperate even rushed. over great story but this one was a tad weak compared to the others like it lost its shock value
the climax was underwhelming unlike the others

Love Hound!

From the beginning, I can't say that Hound was a favorite, but after reading his story... he is definitely at the top of the list! There is so much to love about this rough, seemingly hard-hearted man, but I don't want to spoil the experience. So, if you're a Kristen Ashley/ Chaos fan, this is a MUST read! If you're new to KA/Chaos, this is a MUST read!

Wild Like the Wind

I can’t say this is a favorite book of mine in the series but I will say it was a perfect fit for it.

I am glad Hound got a book I was worried he wouldn’t and I think it needed to be written. Keely we know was Black’s wife and she really took his death hard. And the fact that he died because of Chaos. She had to come to terms with it all.

I think the only reason this story really worked was that we saw the devotion Hound had for his brothers family and though he does have feelings he would NEVER act on them and he didn’t. Keely did… for that and that alone is why I believe this story really worked.

I really enjoyed getting the full story from when her boys were younger and how Hound stepped up to the present and how the story got laid out.

Again not my favorite of the series but one I am glad I got to read because it really sets up for the next book to follow. I hope it comes soonish because I neeeeeed more CHAOS!

LOVED the narration Kate Russell does a fantastic job with her tone and the emotion she puts into this performance.

Just get it over with

It was really hard to get into the story when both main characters were so unlikable. Too much sex. Too much cringy moments. Hero being violent towards heroine. It is not what I expected from KA.

Where's the story?

I generally love Kristin Ashley books and especially the Chaos MC book series. This is the first one I couldn't recommend. There just really isn't any story to speak of. Just one sex scene after sex scene. They are hot sex scenes but I really like to have a story to the books I read otherwise it's no different than mens porn. There is a hint of a story towards the end of the book that may be a teaser for the next book in the series.

Is this a KA book?


I love KA books. I have read just about all of her books. But this one just seem to go on and on about different characters and I was getting lost. I also wish she would cut down on all the extra that she puts in her books like I walked into the room then when I got into the room I sat down in my chair and once I sat down in my chair I sat with my hands folded on the table and put my head down. And then she goes on and on describing things and I wish she would just get to the point. And more interacting with the people in the book less inner dialogue. It had been so long since I listen to the first few books that I was completely lost on who she was even talking about in this book. I think I have to find another author for a while.

Can’t wait for the final showdown!

I’ve got to say that the politics that now include Chew, a former brother of Chaos, are almost getting confusing. I’m anxious to see the resolution of that issue. I’m also curious to see what ends up happening with Boz and his love life. I really enjoyed, overall, listening to Hounds story. The only thing I didn’t enjoy was the prolonged feelings of Angst, associated with his story. It provoked such a long uncomfortable feeling that, for the first time ever, I had to set this book aside, for a day, and listen to something more upbeat. When I’m listening to a book, I do so for an escape. Prolonged angst, in a book, tends to ruin my mood. I’m a little disappointed that KA used the same, “ we are going to keep our relationship a secret”, theme ,again. The same basic premise was used in Shy’s book and Hop’s book; time from something new and interesting. This is why I did not give this book a solid 5 star ⭐️ rating. Be that as it may, I still believe that this book is definitely worth a credit.

WHAT A STORY.. WHAT AN AUTHOR.. & WHAT A RIDE

Wow Kristen Ashley has written a beautiful and emotional book with so many feels.. and the hours just flew by because I was lost in Keely and Hound’s intense love story.. in their world of loving each other despite the shadows surrounding it. Shadows of a past love so deep, true and tragic. Shadows of a brotherhood backlash and biker consequences. Shadows caused by fragilities and insecurities which shake their relationship for a while. And shadows caused by their unerring love and devotion to the boys and not wanting to hurt them.. the boys who grew up, grew wise and grew into cheeky Chaos Prospects. KA also seamlessly weaves into the framework of this story well-loved brothers, their feisty old ladies and the continuation of the Chaos story.. the good, the bad and the wolves at their door.

The first 35% was told in Hound’s POV - and it was heavy on the heat .. then in Keely’s POV as this strong heroine tells her possessive alpha biker a few home truths and just how badly he blew it. There were so many emotional tugs and heartachingly beautiful feels as Keely and Hound forged their future together, I loved the close relationship they both have with the boys and I was in awe of the clipped style of verbal sparring that KA does so well with this bossy yet loveable biker culture. And, wow, Kate Russell’s flawless narration deserves the highest of praises because young or old, man or woman, happy or sad and calm or crazy.. she delivered a solid gold performance.

Worth a credit? Erm.. well?.. let me think for a while.. Hell YES YES YES it’s worth a credit.

Awesome

What a Fabulous book, yes some tears , happy & sad ones but that's a sign of great writing of the Author can make all your emotions fire . I too didn't like Keely in the beginning she was a right b!tch ... Yes she had a right to be , but Hound was just so very lovely , but she sure did pull her head in once she realized he had had enough of her crap .. The old Jewish women What a doll . As always we hear from other characters which I love , Beverly & Tad that was a whole lot of fun .... An excellent listen that I thoroughly enjoyed.

Ok, but not much action compared to other books by Kristen Ashley

This was an ok listen but there wasn’t much plot development for the overall series, so I was a bit bored at times. Felt more like a filler book to hit the book quota demanded by the publisher. Worth a listen, but not very memorable.

A slow start but ultimately worth it

I struggled with the beginning of this book which surprised me because I love Kristen Ashley's books. I even considered returning it but I'm glad I stuck with it as it got much better once it switched to Keeley's POV. Still, not one of my favourites.
