Forever Ride (Hellions Ride, #2)


Amazon US | Amazon UK | B&N | Smashwords

Synopsis
 
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
 
Sass has seen too much, experienced too much on the ride for the lives of her and Doll. She's decided it's time. Time to leave the club, time to move on, and time to experience how the other half live. She has the perfect opportunity with Nick and she's going to grab it with both hands. He can give her everything. He's willing to give her what she's never had and keep her safe. You know what they say about glass houses though, sometimes they shatter.
 
Tank is locked in darkness. He can hear her words, feel her tears, but he can't stay awake long enough for more. He needs to break through, if not he might lose her for good. If she's gone, she takes away everything. She's what drives him to want to wake, to heal, and to look to the future. She's his forever ride, if he can't have her then his bike will remain empty.
 
This book is amazingly written. I was hooked on this series when I read "One Ride", but this book is completely different from it. Of course, Sass is a completely different type of woman from Doll. Sass experiences how the other half live and while life is different it's not necessarily changed in the ways she wants. I'll just say I never liked Nick. I always thought there was something off about him. While Tank was an utter ass in the first book, you learn why in this one. He has always genuinely cared for Sass even if he had a shit way of showing it.
 
This book is full of real life. It's not just the bike life that most of us don't know. This is the life that could happen to anyone. This book is up, down, and all around. You'll feel so bad for Sass, but by the end be glad that she can appreciate what she has and that she can look to her future smiling.
 
This is a definite 5 star book. It has me reeling from the first page and still hooked on the last. The snippet of the next book Tessie's looks great. I can't wait to read it. This is an instant need to read series for anyone wanting romance and the MC life.

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.

Chelsea Camaron was born and raised in Coastal North Carolina. She currently resides in Southern Louisiana with her husband and two children but her heart is always Carolina day dreaming. Chelsea always wanted to be a writer, but like most of us, let fear of the unknown grab a hold of her dream; she realized that if she was going to tell her daughter to go for her dreams, that it was time to follow her own advice. Chelsea grew up turning wrenches alongside her father, and from that grew her love for old muscle cars and Harley Davidson motorcycles, which just so happened to inspired her ‘Daddy’s Girls’ series. Her love for reading has sparked a new love for writing and she currently has a few more projects in the works. When she is not spending her days writing you can find her playing with her kids, attending car shows, going on motorcycle rides on the back of her husband’s Harley, snuggling down with her new favorite book or watching any movie that Vin Diesel might happen to be in. She hates being serious and is still a big kid at heart. She is a small town country girl enjoying life and, Chelsea hopes that her readers remember not to take life too seriously and to embrace your inner five year old, because five year olds know how to enjoy the simple things in life and how to always have fun.
