Own the Wind by Kristen Ashley is a book both Rowena and I enjoyed. While I’ve been on the Ashley bandwagon for months, this is one of my favorite books by her. Today we have an excerpt for you!
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 . . .
Read an excerpt:
The way clear, Shy swung off his bike, jogged to the steps, took them two at a time, and didn’t hesitate to pound his fist on her door the instant he hit it. He also didn’t stop pounding until he heard the locks turn and the door was thrown open.
“Jeez, Shy, what’s the deal?” Tabby snapped, staring up at him.
He hadn’t seen her in a month.
This meant that was the wrong greeting.
The way wrong greeting.
>Making matters even worse, behind her everything but the furniture was boxed up.
Fighting back his need to explode, he prowled in and Tabby had to jump out of his way. Once in, he turned on her.
“Shut the door, Tabby,” he ordered.
“Shut the fuckin’ door, Tabby!” he roared and watched her face pale as she shut the door and turned to him.
“Okay, Shy, calm down. We’ll talk,” she said gently.
“You leavin’?” he asked.
“I…” she hesitated, licked her fucking lip and, Christ, that hit him straight in his dick like that always hit him straight in his dick. “Yes, Shy,” she admitted. “I was gonna call you next week. Talk to you. Tell you what’s—”
He cut her off, “You’re not leavin’.”
Her head jerked then she told him, “I am, Shy. I need space to get my head together. The contracts are signed—”
“You,” he interrupted her again, “Are. Not. Leaving.”
She shut her mouth and stared at him.
He kept talking.
“You gotta get your head together, you do it here where I can get to you, not somewhere where I gotta haul my ass on a plane to get to you. Are you comprehending me?”
“But, Shy—” she started.
She was not comprehending him.
“You’re not leaving,” he repeated.
“I have to, the—”
He leaned toward her and growled, “You are not leaving.”
Suddenly, she lost it, throwing her hands out to the sides, she asked, “Why?”
“This is why,” he clipped, stalked the three steps that separated them, snaked an arm around her waist, drove a hand into the back of her hair, and hauled her into his arms.
He slammed his mouth down on hers.
Then he thrust his tongue between her lips and there it was.
Christ, there it fucking was.
That taste he’d had on his tongue for fucking years.
Sweet, God, so fuckin’ sweet.
Own the Wind is available now from Forever Yours. You can buy it here or here in e-format.
I love it! MC has been very popular lately, but KA seems to do it the best.
I think KA’s MC alpha’s are awesome! They are the best romantic heros because you don’t expect them to do typical ‘romantic’ things. And let’s face it, all the Chaos men are at least a little bit romantic or else they wouldn’t get the feisty hot ladies they currently have.
I don’t mind a motorcycle club, but I don’t care for tattoos.
I don’t really know much about motorcycle clubs, so I’m open to seeing a mc member as a hero.
This book sounds amazing. Can’t wait to read it.
I love Kristen Ashley! Right now I’m anxiously awaiting the last Rock Chick book. I also really enjoy her MC world.
I read a couple of them a while back–Jaci Burton’s Wild Riders–and I liked them. It’s all in the writing, isn’t it?
Now, I am not yet on the Kristen Ashley bandwagon, but hey, with a giveaway, how could I resist?
I think it is hot whoo, congrats
I haven’t read Kristen Ashley yet, but all I hear are good things, and the exerpt left me wanting to read this. I do think I’ll be picking up some of her books soon either way.
Can’t wait to read this one. I loved Tack’s story.
I have never read a MC story, but your review and the excerpt made me want to read this one. I read a lot, so it’s nice to sometimes try something new.
I love bad boys as leading men!
I have yet to read a romance book with a motorcycle rider in it. Sounds like a fun read.
I love romance novels with motorcycle riders in them. I have been wanting to read this book since I saw it, it sounds great.
