One Ride, Forever Ride

Delilah “Doll” Reklinger never imagined her life with anyone that wasn’t a Hellion. She never imagined a Hellion would come along and prove himself worthy enough to her father, Roundman, Hellions Club President. Content in living in the bubble of safety the motorcycle club family has always provided, Doll never thought that danger surrounded her.

Roundman has kept the Hellions contained for the last thirty years by controlling the chaos surrounding their lifestyle. When the dangerous side to their business comes knocking on his door, he realizes his precious Doll isn’t safe. The Hellions code may be that women and children are off limits in any altercation or dispute, but that doesn’t mean their enemies follow that same moral compass.

His only child, now in danger from the association to him and his club, Roundman makes a decision. He sends her away to a charter club, in hopes that the trouble won’t follow.

One ride across the country. One simple ride. Talon “Tripp” Crews has been ordered to take Doll on one ride away and to keep her safe. She’s off limits, his head knows this, but his body can’t deny the sparks between them. She’s feisty, fierce, and fearless. Constantly in close confines together, can they deny the chemistry? Will they give into the attraction between them? Can one ride turn lust into love?

Manda's 3 Star Review:

After a dangerous threat to her safety is made Delilah “Doll” Reklinger is sent off on a ride by her father to keep her safe. Her father is the president of the Hellions MC and would do anything to keep his only daughter safe. Including sending her on a cross country ride with Talon “Tripp” Crews.

Tripp knows she is off limits and knows he has a job to do, but the chemistry between them is undeniable. He does everything he can think of to try and keep them from exploring what they are both experiencing. Pushing her away is the only thing he can do to try to keep her safe from him because they could never be together.

I was really excited about reading this one. The storyline seemed really good and I love MC books. The writing was good but I just felt like it was missing something. I had trouble connecting to the story once I got started and by the end still felt like I didn't really connect to the characters. We really don't get any details about what is going on and all the action seems to be happening back at the MC. I ended up feeling more of a connection to the supporting characters. I will be reading the next book in the series as it is about the characters I found so interesting in this book. Not everyone connects with every book and this one just wasn't for me. I am really excited to read book 2 in the series and can not wait for it to come out!

Events happen in life that can awaken our truest and deepest desires. They also show us our greatest fears. Sometimes we are forced to face those fears, other times we build walls that can't be broken to protect ourselves.

A profound connection these two once shared. A strong friendship once formed was shattered. Fate has stepped in and shaken both their worlds.

The danger, the wild, the chaos, and the lifestyle of the Hellions world has become far too much for Savannah 'Sass' Perchton. Swearing off bikers and attempting a 'normal' life, she has settled. She's committed to Nick, her country club, pretty boy. She's found a way to be content.

Things aren't always what they seem. Wrap an empty box in pretty paper and a bow, it may look amazing, but it's still a hollow shell.

He's a Hellions playboy. A different chick in his bed, off on a different ride, and always something new. He's Frank the 'Tank' Oleander, Haywood's Hellions Road Chief. Throttle down and life is good.

The fast pace of the Hellions life catches up to him. At a crossroads, he's forced to face some life changing thoughts or succumb to the darkness of death. Teetering on the brink of giving in, her voice is all he's holding onto. The coma he can't pull himself out of, but her voice is the light in the darkness. He wants the girl who pulled him through when his life was literally in the balance.

She's sworn off bikers. Can he pull through? Can she ever see past the lifestyle to the heart of the man behind the cut? Will they find their Forever Ride?

Manda's 4 Star Review:

Savannah “Sass” Perchton has had enough of the biker life. After finally realizing she will never end up with Frank the 'Tank' Oleander, she decides to give up on the life completely. After Tank is severely injured trying to save her best friend “Doll”, Savannah throws herself completely in to her relationship with Nick. He is completely different than the Hellions she is used to. He is a country club boy and lives a lavish lifestyle. The deeper she gets with nick the further away she pushes everyone else. Until she realizes the girl she was is completely gone. Confused and afraid she struggles with what she wants and who she is.

Tank is fighting for his life and trying to return from the darkness of the coma he has been in for the last several months. Hearing her voice is the only thing that keeps him from giving in and giving up. Lost in his mind Tank relives all the trials and mistakes of his life. He knows he messed up with Sass and knows he has lost her, but the thought of her is the only thing pulling him from the dark.

Since reading the first book I have been anxiously awaiting Sass and Tank's story. I liked their characters in the first book and could not wait to read their story. I liked this book more than the first and found that I couldn't put it down. This is a great continuation of the story. Not only are we pulled into the difficult relationship that is Sass and Tank's, we also get more of Doll and Tripp and the rest of the Hellions. Not a lot of action in this book like you see in most MC books. It focuses more on the characters and how they ended up where they are and less of the typical trouble you find in a lot of books in this genre. Even without all the action the story keeps you interested and wanting to know what happens next. Now I am again left anxiously awaiting the next book in the series! I definitely recommend this book. Even if you weren't a fan of the first book you don't want to miss out on this story. Cannot wait to find out what happens next with the Hellions.
