BookWhisperer Rating:


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...

our thoughts

Shy oh my Shy! After the end of Motorcycle Man I could think of nothing else, but getting my hands on this book. The idea of a story with Shy and Tabby was almost too much to bare. Even worse the story begins, and it is not relentless love conquers all. The heart break that surrounds the two of them for years was terrible. Misunderstanding, tragedy, and anger kept them apart for so long, but when they finally come together it makes it all worth it. This was not the typically Ashley story that I have come to expect. The biggest difference was the level of action intensity in this book. While it was action filled it was not your usual tragedy that results in a desperate action from main characters. The action of this novel filled more detail to the characters rather than a defining moment for the couple. Shy is a bad ass biker with a dark past, and when we reach the bulk of this story this concept really becomes a reality. Through it all I can't help, but love his character regardless of his nature. Tabby is a little backward, and and she knows this. So it is interesting to see her sort through her emotions, and her analyzing of every detail really allowed readers to step into her shoes throughout. Own the Wind built and built, but just when we hit the crest it STOPS! I know there is more to come, and even though the next novel will spotlight Hop and Lanie, there will still be more to learn about Shy and Tab. It is just the abrupt ending without the fee fall of suspense was missing from this story. Please don't underestimate the power of this author; it was still a truly exceptional book with the change. Kirsten Ashley is known by many as an incredible author, and every time I read one of her stories I remember just exactly why.
