Ultimate Book Boyfriend: Joker


Welcome to what used to be called just Dom’s Dungeon in our BURNING UP JULY month!  Two years ago, we’ve added a few extra categories. Starting off with the Ultimate Book Boyfriend, for the next three days you will meet the nominees of this year. On the third day, you will be able to vote for your favourites once all three nominees have been revealed. Voting will run until the end of the month.

Hero: Carson Steele aka Joker

Book: Ride Steady by Kristen Ashley

Series: Chaos, #3

Heroine: Carissa Teodoro

Appearance: Gorgeous, long dark shoulder length black hair, full beard, muscular tattooed body, steely gray eyes.

Joker is the quintessential hero. Alpha to the core; this strong, gruff, silent, and very sexy man lives his life thinking he doesn’t need to settle down but when the right woman comes along, he falls hard and gives everything he has to make sure she never doubts his love for her. He’s a closet romantic with a wonderful sense of humor and a healthy sexuality. Did I mention is has a deliciously dirty mouth he loves to use on his woman?  Anything and everything goes in and out of the bed as he only wants to make his woman happy. Though Joker is as alpha as his fellow biker bros, he’s more laid back and dare I say-modernized- in his thinking. Not to say he won’t drop hell on anyone who threatens those he loves, but he’s not unreasonable. He never tries to control his woman. He never talks down to his woman. He doesn’t subscribe to the second class mentality most bikers adhere to. He listens to her and ‘guides’ her into making a better life with him. Joker has it all going on and it the ultimate boyfriend for those who like their men large, in charge, and whose only goal is to spend the rest of their lives loving you.

The ride of her life . . .
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 . . .

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.
