The sizzling-hot Caldwell Brothers series—perfect for readers of J. S. Scott and Emma Chase—hits the Vegas strip as a bad-boy gambler from Detroit Rock City shows a single mom what it means to play for keeps.
 
For Morrison Caldwell, life is a game of chance. A high roller with a legendary poker face, he’s the wild card of the family, always chasing the next thrill and never staying put for long. The one place that always lures him back is Las Vegas, with its hot tables and even hotter women. He’s perfectly content to live his life as a series of one-night stands. But when a parking lot confrontation with a cocktail waitress takes a naughty turn, she leaves Morrison aching for another round.

After a long losing streak in Sin City, Hailey Poe is ready to get lucky. A steamy tryst with a cocky, mysterious stranger is the kind of no-strings encounter she’s been craving . . . until Morrison Caldwell asks for more than she’s willing to offer. But when Hailey’s controlling, soon-to-be ex-husband tries to take her daughter away, she can’t afford to turn down a helping hand. In this winner-takes-all game, Morrison is gambling with Hailey’s life—and her heart.

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?

Review

3-5 stars
3.5 stars

I wanted to love this book so much. Sadly, although I liked the story and the characters, it didn’t hold up to my expectations.

Most of my disappointment stems from the fact that after I read One Ride I had become curious about the connection Sass and Tank shared. In the brief interactions they shared, their chemistry jumped off the page and although their connection was subtle it still felt real and intense. For this installment I was looking forward to see that connection deepen and grow.

Now I’m not saying that Chelsea Camaron didn’t bring their connection to the page. She did. But she didn’t ‘show’ me a lot of it. Most of the time she ‘told’ me about it which took some of the joy out of the experience. Then add to the fact that Tank and Sass didn’t interact much in this story and you can understand why I was disappointed. For me, it’s imperative that I get to experience that initial connection, its growth and how it was deepened (which happens mostly through character interaction).

However, having said that, I admit that the story was a good one. It delved into the situation Sass found herself after she decided to ‘quit’ the MC lifestyle–her struggles, her conflicted emotions. I liked that I got to see that side of the story. It added to Sass’ growth as an individual which in turn helped her to grow as a couple with Tank.

Tank’s side of the story was interesting too. We got to know his story from the very beginning–what shaped him, what drove him. I’m glad I got to see him in another light which appeased my curiosity about him.

As I said, their chemistry was very good and I’m disappointed that I didn’t get to see much of it. Thankfully, the little bit I saw was paired with Sass and Tank’s emotions which made it a treat to read.

Keep in mind that although this is the second book in the series it can be read as a stand alone. Talon and Doll make a couple of appearances that added to the progression of the story but overall is was all about Sass and Tank’s journey to finding their way back to each other.

All in all, a good addition to the series.

*I received a copy of this title in exchange of my honest opinion.

Excerpt

~Sass~

Climbing off the bike, my legs are unsteady.

“Button, you don’t have to stay here with him. You know that, right?”

“Tank, it’s complicated,” I remind him.

“So you keep sayin’, but the way I see it, you can’t be you here. The fancy car, big house, stiff clothes, and boring hair… that shit ain’t you. Button, you gotta live life.”

“I’m safe living here with Nick. The Hellions aren’t safe. You, for one, should see that.”

“What I see is family. What I see is you’re afraid. You once called me out about being afraid of commitment. Well, Button, you’re full of fear, too. Fear of the unknown. There was a time when you wanted to take chances, to hell with the consequences. What happened?”

“Lots of shit happened throughout my life. The club life, it’s not for me. I’m not strong enough.”

“This is the life you were born into. It’s in your blood. Holding on to me just now, you relaxed into the ride like it was second nature. You know you’re meant for this, and you’re meant for me. Life’s too short, Button.”

“Tank, just let it go. Just let me go. Please,” I beg him, unsure how much more I can take before I climb back on his bike and let him take me away.

“Roundman once told me to play the cards life deals us. Well, folding is not an option. You’re in my cards. Life placed you in my hand and I’m building my winning play around you. Sort your shit, Button, because I’m not letting go.”

The tears are building behind my eyes. “Please, give me time. You were gone a long time.”

“I didn’t come here to upset you or force my hand today. I’m gonna go, but I’m not giving up on you.”

Leaning over to him since he’s still on his bike, I kiss his cheek. “Until next time, Tank.”

“Until next ride, Button,” he responds with a wink as he cranks the bike and then proceeds to pull away, leaving my heart and my life a mess.

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?

3.5 stars

What I liked the best about  this story was that “Doll” was as much a part of the MC as she could be and she didn’t resent her place in it. I also appreciated the fact that although she was not happy about some of the things she was forced to do, she took them in stride and never faltered in her loyalty to her club. I do admit that it took a while for me to warm up to her, but once the conflict started to develop, she won me over.

Talon was great too, but not much different than other heroes I’ve read about. I wish I could have seen a bit more emotion from his part, but at least he made up with the brooding which I enjoyed.  His frustrations when it came to dealing with Delilah made for an entertaining read.

As for their romance, it was slow in coming although their chemistry was always at the forefront of their every interaction. I did feel like their connection lacked in development, but at least it was established and as it was written it was enough for me to believe that something more could come out of their initial coming together. I did feel like some of the sex scenes didn’t advance the story in any way. They were well written and hell yeah they were hot, but sometimes less is more and in this case I would have appreciated a bit more of the emotional than the physical. But that’s me.

I do have to say that I’m especially curious about Savannah’s story. I admit that in the beginning it was her that drew my attention to the story. There was something about her vulnerability that called to me to know more about her. I think her story will be one I would enjoy. From the brief glimpse I got of Tank in this story, I believe that he is a complex character and that discovering his many layers would be a treat to read.

All in all, a solid first book in a series where the world of the Hellions was well presented with a brief yet intriguing introduction to the characters that will continue on all the while bringing forth a hot little romance.
