Own the Wind is definitely a more polished book, more concise with a little less babble and yet it still has Kristen’s voice weaved all the way through ~ Under the Covers

Tabitha Allen has had a crush on Parker “Shy” Cage since she was a teenager  a crush that Shy manages to completely bury when he shows Tabby a harsh life lesson when he sees her going off the tracks. After Shy’s cruel and eye opening lesson Tabby freezes him out, but when tragedy strikes he offers his comfort and friendship and Tabby begins to feel herself falling for him all over again.

This is Kristen’s debut with a publisher and I know there were concerns that her voice and way of story telling would be changed…and it had, but for the better! Own the Wind is definitely a more polished book, more concise with a little less babble and yet it still has Kristen’s voice weaved all the way through sucking me completely in to the story and the characters she has created.

And the characters in this will be familiar to anyone who has read her previous books and I loved that we got a glimpse of Lee, Elvira, Hawk and loads of the others not to mention the Chaos gang; it is like coming back for a family reunion. We were also introduced to some new characters which I can’t wait to see more of. 

As for Tabby and Shy, much like KA’s other couples they were perfect, Shy was all growley and bad boy biker *swoons* and Tabby was funny and sweet and (most the time) knew how to handle her sexy biker. They also had some great chemistry, the sex scenes between them were both really hot and yet sweet as you can see how much they love each other.

This was another success from Ms Ashley and I cannot wait to read the next book in this series, although I refuse to read the snippet of the next one, it will make waiting even harder!!

About Kristen Ashley

Kristen Ashley was born in Gary, Indiana, USA. She 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!).

Kristen grew up in Brownsburg, Indiana but has lived in Denver, Colorado and the West Country of England. Thus she has been blessed to have friends and family around the globe. Her posse is loopy (to say the least) but loopy is good when you want to write.

Kristen was raised in a house with a large and multi-generational family. They lived on a very small farm in a small town in the heartland and existed amongst the strains of 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 up, it keeps getting better.

Thanks Marina 🙂 It is kind of spin off of Motorcycle Man as it involves the same group of people, but you don’t have to have read it first, but it is always nice to have the background on some of the characters, Motocycle Man is about how the heroine’s dad meets her step mum and is also amazing!
