Summary:

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?



My Review:

Intro: I am late with this one. My computer died a tragic death after months of constantly having to be resuscitated. I have a new one now...it has a fancypants touch screen and everything and the nice computer techy people were able to find my review of Forever Ride on my dead as a doornail computer.

I am walking into this book completely cold. I have not read the first book in the series so I have no idea really who these people are. It usually doesn't present a problem but Tank and Sass have quite the backstory to them.

Heroine: Sass- I really liked Sass. She was strong and smart and definitely likable. She had just turned her back on the Club which caused some emotional turmoil and upheaval. She's also involved in a relationship with a controlling abusive man. It was just so easy to empathize with her. I did have moments of complete and total frustration with her though.

Hero: Tank-Throughout most of the book, Tank is in a coma. Having not read the first book, I normally would have felt as if I didn't get to know Tank very well. But I love how it was handled. He was present in the story even though he wasn't really active. And he was exactly what you would expect from a MC hero. A bit gruff and a bit loose on the morals but a good, sweet man nonetheless.

Chemistry: This is a bit difficult. Tank spends a good portion of the book in a coma so interaction was limited. They did have a very deep and strong connection and I did love their story but I think it would have been easier for me to see the development if I had read the first book. Which I will do.

Chemistry Rating:


Ending Babble: I really did enjoy this one. It was one of the more unique MC romances I have read. I thought the way the romance was developed was ingenious. The hero was in a coma and I still felt as if I had gotten to know him just as well as I got to know the awake and aware heroine. It takes one great writer to be able to do that. I will be playing catchup with the Hellions Ride series because I plan on following like a fangirl.  
Overall Rating

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.


About the Author


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.
