Own the Wind by Kristen Ashley  Too hot to handle...

Tabitha Allen grew up in the thick of Chaos--the Chaos Motorcycle Club, that is. Her father is Chaos' leader, and the club has always had her back. But one rider was different from the start. When Tabby was running wild, Shy Cage was there. When tragedy tore her life apart, he helped her piece it back together. And now, Tabby's thinking about much more than friendship...

Tabby is everything Shy's ever wanted, but everything he thinks he can't have. She's beautiful, smart, and as his friend's daughter, untouchable. Shy never expected more than friendship, so when Tabby indicates she wants more--much more--he feels like the luckiest man alive. But even lucky men can crash and burn...


   This is the first of Kristen Ashley’s books that I have read that is full length.  I did get a taste of this book which is why I bought this in “A Christmas to Remember” which I just reviewed like last week.  I loved Tabby and Shy so much I just had to read more about them.

     To Parker (Shy) Cage, Tabitha (Tabby) Allen was beautiful.  And every time he saw her it hit him in his chest, a burning in his gut, flaming lungs and then hard to breathe.  He had never ever felt that way.  God knows he had had his fair share of women but here was this fiery little thing that could tear you a new one but was sexy as hell doing it.  Was it all that thick dark hair and her sapphire blue eyes?  Maybe, it was her curvy petite body or the golden tanned skin of summer she still had?  Even if guys weren’t into short women they could see how pretty she was.

     He knew what it was she was just one of those girls it was nice to be around.  Her face told all it was expressive, always with a smile and quick to laugh and so animated.  Yet, when she got mad she was one feisty little thing.  She just carried a good mood wherever she went and when she was gone you were better for it, even if your day had been bad it just got better. 

     With all that being said she was off limits.  She was to young, to immature and his brother’s (in the club) daughter which is number one reason not to go there.  Yet, she rocked his world.  She was his reason to get up in the morning but he was not in her league.  But she was blowing it.

     Because she was Tack’s daughter (Head of the Club) everyone treated her with kid gloves.  Because Shy was in love with her, although he didn’t know it yet, he thought it was time for some tough love.  He was just the man for to give it.  The thing was he knew that Tabby had a crush on him but he had no idea that she was in love with him.  That this so called tough love at her tender age of 19 was going to throw her so far out of his realm that he was going to lose her.

     Well, with that came a year and a half freeze-out for him.  Her life did change he did help her but hurt himself and really her in the long run.  It did change for the better until she faced a tragic event that made her lose focus but Shy was who she called when she needed help, for that, he was grateful.  You see being a part of a bikers club is a life style you chose but for Tabby she was born into it and to love Shy she had to want to pick it twice and so see what she decides to do and if Shy even gives her that chance. 

     This is a raw gritty look at a lifestyle most of us only see in the movie and books.  I for one am okay with that.  This is such a romantic and sexually charged couple that you can’t help but love them.  You need to know that they do have graphic love scenes so beware.  But you see what they have to go through to be together and see what their lifestyle entails.  This books delves into the backgrounds of these two characters and their families and even as crazy as it is to think about living in it the family dynamics are no different than everyone wants for their families.  You see their struggles and pains and the joys and happiness.  You feel it too.  Kristen is a really gifted writer one that makes you just get deep into one of her books as if watching a movie.

    I bought this book myself and so glad I did.  I totally enjoyed it.  Because you will see the wild and bumpy ride that Tabby and Shy take in order to make their relationship into one and then into how to keep it one when the club and family find out.  You are looking at two very strong personalities and they are colorful that is for sure.  I like how Kristen allows her characters to have flaws yet be strong and endure whatever life throws at them with family and friends by their sides.  Loved this book.
