Title: Still Standing
Series: Wild West MC #1
Author: Kristen Ashley
I must apologise though because for some reason I scheduled this in for a past date (I am an idiot!)
When Clara Delany walks into the Aces High Motorcycle Club’s hangout, she’s hit rock bottom. She’s hiding her car from the repo man, she has less than two dollars in her bank account and the only employment she can get is delivering messages for a criminal.
All because of a man. Therefore, she’s sworn off them.
And then she meets West “Buck” Hardy, president of the Aces High MC.
Buck also meets her, and the minute he does, he makes it clear (to everyone but Clara) that they’re starting something. Since Clara doesn’t get that message, she decides to leave Buck and sort out her life in order to come back to him clean.
She’s not gone but hours before life hits Clara with another blow. Which means Buck and his boys have to ride in and save the day. After that, Buck makes no bones about where they stand.
But does he?
Welcome to the first novel in the Wild West MC series which will tell the stories of the brothers of the Aces High MC, the Resurrection MC, and the Chaos MC…and the women who love them.
Clara is on the downers, in fact right at the bottom because of her ex-husband. A ‘business’ meeting puts Clara in the path of West ‘Buck’ Hardy and it doesn’t go quite the way she planned!
‘I wasn’t on shaky ground. I was in the middle of an earthquake.’
Did this remind me of Chaos? Yes.
Was Buck, Tack? No.
Was I hooked? Yes.
Did I read all 528 pages in 1 day? Yes.
This book had all the hallmarks of a great, gritty, raw MC read and KA does do MC fabulously!
There was one part that I really didn’t like and I was angry at Clara for some bits of the story but I was also so sad that she thought the way she did about herself and what she had to put up with. But I guess that makes it a good story because I felt!
So to continue my questions/answer session from above, I have one last one.
Will I read the next book? Try and stop me!
