I received this ARC in exchange for an honest review.
So this tells the story of Lanie, a woman who has been hanging out with the Chaos motorcycle club for the past eight years or so with her best friend Tyra (Ty-Ty) who had married the head of the club, Tack. Their story was in “Motorcycle Man” in the Dream Man series (which I haven’t read).
At the beginning of the book, Lanie propositions Hopper “Hop” Kincaid to one night of sex and he agrees. The only problem is that one night is not enough for either of them. Before they know it they’re involved in a secret relationship that neither can get enough of. Lanie tries not to let him get too deep in her heart after suffering in the past while Hop is determined to help her overcome her reservations and to make them a couple.
I really, really, really liked this book! The only problem I had was it’s length (I seem to have a thing about really long books where I cant read them all at once and have to break them up with other books). There was something about it that just dragged me in and kept me reading. Maybe it was the way Hopper treated Lanie like a lady, simply because she came from a better background than him but still treated everyone fairly. Or his way of talking and thinking because he talked a lot of sense and did a lot of nice things for Lanie.
He was so easy to fall for.
There were two quotes I really liked:
“Honey,” I called and his head came up. “You have a monster too.”
“I did. My woman just slayed it.”
He lifted his head and looked down at me. “Have it all now, I made a baby outta love.”
He was killing me.
“Stop making me cry and kiss me.”
Both show Hop’s sweeter side and made me all awwwww…
The only downside for me was that this was my first book by Kristen Ashley, even though I have two other books by her on my Kindle, and I hadn’t read the others to understand the back story of Lanie and her relationship with her previous fiancé Elliott.
Please note: It doesn’t take away from the story at all if you haven’t read it, as it is explained throughout Fire Inside but I personally would have liked to read Lanie’s back story first.
Nevertheless, this was an amazing insight into a motorcycle club and a really nice love story. I love it!
