You can now purchase Hard Ride on Amazon:


I love Tara Oakes and I love MC books so this was a no brainer. This book mostly focuses on Chase, but there is a lot of Dawson and Molly as well as the trouble surrounding the Slayers MC. The Mexican Cartel has been giving the boys some trouble. At the end of book one, the club had devised a plan to gain some control over the situation. Also at the end of book 1, Molly had some news to share with Dawson; it was a heck of a cliffhanger. I’m happy to say that this book isn’t. The book is written from multiple points of view which is always a plus for me. Some of the story line felt rushed to me, but that didn’t distract me too much. It is clear that the plot is going in a specific direction with Chase, so sooner or later it was going to happen. Anyway, I give this book 4 stars and look forward to the next in this series.

I wish I read the first book, I feel like I am missing a little background, but not enough that I did not enjoy the book. Dawson is the President of a local MC and runs a tight ship. He does it respectfully and keeps people happy and willing to follow him, they trust him to do the right thing for everyone. He does have a bit of a temper and when the Cartel threatens his club, he does something drastic and ends up kidnapping the illegitimate "forgotten" daughter of the Cartel leader. While keeping her captive, he has his best man and club enforcer keep and eye on her. This is a club that is a little more gang like than any other MC book or show I have been entertained by and I think I like it a little more for that. I say think, only because I am not used to it. Chase and Cat develope a bond after she stops trying to kill him and Dawson puts the idea in his head to get her knocked up to add more leverage. When the MC learns about the truth of her relationship with her father and that her and her cousin Mateo want to over thrown the Cartel leader, things start to look up. Especially now that he has a woman living with him with her niece. He does what he can to keep her safe, and in the end they share very good news and everything wors out. The club and the Cartel are now working together and Cat stayed behind to stay with Chase and be used as leverage in case something happens between them. Especially since Mateo has a card up his sleeve as well. I am super ready for the next book and still want to read the first.

This book was given to me in exchange for an honest review.
