Wild Like the Wind by Kristen Ashley

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.

Hound’s love for Keely is awe inspiring. But his love for his club is immense and to have Keely as his woman, he has to go against the rules of his club.

For me, this story is all about Hound. He is an amazingly strong man and while I initially loved him for his love for Keely, when we learn how he spends every morning I thought my heart was going to burst for this guy. But I clearly had him on a pedestal because halfway through he behaves in a way that, for me, was very difficult to get past.

While so much time and effort was put into Hound and making me love him, I didn’t feel the same way about Keely. To me, she felt like a generic Kristen Ashley heroine. Like the cool bits of different heroines were just thrown in together, like as much time and effort wasn’t put into her. I did come to like her over the course of the book, but I never loved her.

Hound and Keely’s romance is not easy and between the issue of Keely’s deceased husband, fellow Chaos brother Black, and Chaos’ rules, it was hard to see how these two were going to find their happily ever after. But times they are a changin’ at Chaos and when Hound tells the club about Keely and the issue is brought to a head, things don’t really go the way anyone expects.

Wild Like the Wind is a great story and by the end, I was more in love with Chaos than ever. But it wasn’t perfect. Aside from not loving Keely, I also thought this story had far too much sex and towards the end I just felt like it was being used to fill up the pages. It was still a story I loved and I’m looking forward to the release of Free, the final book in this series, which is due out in January 2019.

Kristen Ashley was born in Gary, Indiana, USA and nearly killed her mother and herself making it into the world, seeing as she had the umbilical cord wrapped around her neck (already attempting to accessorise and she hadn't taken her first breath!). Her mother said they took Kristen away, put her Mom back in her room, her mother looked out the window, and Gary was on fire (Dr. King had been assassinated four days before). Kristen's Mom remembered thinking it was the end of the world. Quite the dramatic beginning.

Nothing's changed.

Kristen grew up in Brownsburg, Indiana and has lived in Denver, Colorado and the West Country of England. Thus, she's blessed to have friends and family around the globe. Her family was (is) loopy (to say the least) but loopy is good when you want to write. They all lived together on a very small farm in a small farm town in the heartland. She grew up with Glenn Miller, The Everly Brothers, REO Speedwagon and Whitesnake (and the wardrobes that matched).

Needless to say, growing up in a house full of music, clothes and love was a good way to grow up.

And as she keeps growing, it keeps getting better.
