Once upon a time, Carissa Teodoro believed in happy endings. Money, marriage, motherhood: everything came easy---until she woke up to the ugly truth about her Prince Charming. Now a struggling, single mom and stranded by a flat tire, Carissa's pondering her mistakes when a vaguely familiar knight rides to her rescue on a ton of horsepower.
Climb on and hold tight . . .
In high school, Carson Steele was a bad boy loner who put Carissa on a pedestal where she stayed far beyond his reach. Today, he's the hard-bodied biker known only as Joker, and from the way Carissa's acting, it's clear she's falling fast. While catching her is irresistible, knowing what to do with her is a different story. A good girl like Carissa is the least likely fit with the Chaos Motorcycle Club. Too bad holding back is so damned hard. Now, as Joker's secrets are revealed and an outside threat endangers the club, Joker must decide whether to ride steady with Carissa---or ride away forever . . .
Now to the story at hand. Other than, and I've always said this, Kristen Ashley can be a little long winded, So a 600+ page book, could have been 550. Anyway, I loved Joker, his life truly did start out sucking in a major way. But the one beautiful thing he wanted, he couldn't have because he didn't want to bring her into his horrible universe. But that's the thing with soul mates, your time may not be set for the beginning. It may be somewhere down the road when you are at a point that you can cherish it, take care of it, love it like it deserves to be loved. Carissa thought she had the perfect life, but she made the mistake of choosing the wrong man. He was not her soul mate, and she had to ride a patch of really shitty road before he walked back into her life. He swooped in, took over, and showed her exactly what true love really is, and how they could Ride Steady. Ah, beautiful. Makes me wish there were really men like Joker in the real world, or at least my world.
Another wonderful Kristen Ashley love story!
