Blog Tour: Rough Ride by Kristen Ashley

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Kristen Ashley comes a new story in her Chaos series…


Rosalie Holloway put it all on the line for the Chaos Motorcycle Club.

Informing to Chaos on their rival club—her man’s club, Bounty—Rosalie knows the stakes. And she pays them when her man, who she was hoping to scare straight, finds out she’s betrayed him and he delivers her to his brothers to mete out their form of justice.

But really, Rosie has long been denying that, as she drifted away from her Bounty, she’s been falling in love with Everett “Snapper” Kavanagh, a Chaos brother. Snap is the biker-boy-next door with the snowy blue eyes, quiet confidence and sweet disposition who was supposed to keep her safe…and fell down on that job.

For Snapper, it’s always been Rosalie, from the first time he saw her at the Chaos Compound. He’s just been waiting for a clear shot. But he didn’t want to get it after his Rosie was left bleeding, beat down and broken by Bounty on a cement warehouse floor.

With Rosalie a casualty of an ongoing war, Snapper has to guide her to trust him, take a shot with him, build a them…

And fold his woman firmly in the family that is Chaos.

**Every 1001 Dark Nights novella is a standalone story. For new readers, it’s an introduction to an author’s world. And for fans, it’s a bonus book in the author’s series. We hope you'll enjoy each one as much as we do.**

Review by Jen Skewes

“It’s not about goin’ it alone. It’s about finding the right people to share it with who will make it better when it’s good and be there to hold you steady when it’s not.”

When I first met Rosalie Holloway’s character in Own the Wind I wasn’t a fan. But that’s because I wanted Shy to finally admit his feelings for Tabby and his being with Rosalie was a roadblock to making that happen.

Rosie had been Shy’s once. He’d scraped her off, took up with Tab before he really even ended it with Rosalie. Cut her deep. Sent her straight to Bounty. To Throttle. 

Shy broke it off with Rosalie; she started seeing a biker Throttle. Problem was, Bounty was into some bad stuff. Rosalie wanted her man out and she worked with Chaos to try to do that. Only it backfired. Throttle and Bounty found out Rosalie was spying on them. Eight of their members, including her own boyfriend Throttle, beat her so badly her face was almost unrecognizable. She was able to call Everett “Snapper” Kavanaugh, from Chaos for help.
Snapper has wanted Rosalie since she was with Shy. Protecting her has been his mission since she started helping Chaos with Bounty. His rage at finding her bloodied and battered is not going to be contained. Revenge is something Chaos is good at and the beating of a woman-that’s never going to get a pass from them.

“I fell for you when you were Shy’s and if you think that now, when you need me most, now, when I finally, fuckin’ finally got a clear shot, I’m givin’ up, think again, Rosie. 

Rough Ride is Snapper and Rosie’s story. The good, the bad and the ugly. No one could get beat like that and not be scarred both inside and out. Trusting a man-not going to be easy after all of this. Trusting your own feelings for a man, when you trusted two before that man and got burnt both times-going to be almost impossible. Snapper isn’t going to have it easy, finally getting the girl. But for a Chaos man-that’s not exactly news. 

“For years, you’ve had a rough ride, what’s happened recently just the most recent. You’ve been jacked around since your daddy died and I don’t think either man meant to do you wrong but in the end they did. And I’m the man who’s gonna do your right, Rosalie. With me, that rough ride is gonna end, baby.”

About Kristen Ashley:

Kristen Ashley was born in Gary, Indiana, USA and nearly killed her mother and herself making it into the world, seeing as she had the umbilical cord wrapped around her neck (already attempting to accessorize and she hadn't taken her first breath!). Her mother said they took Kristen away, put her Mom back in her room, her mother looked out the window, and Gary was on fire (Dr. King had been assassinated four days before). Kristen's Mom remembered thinking it was the end of the world. Quite the dramatic beginning.

Nothing's changed.

Kristen grew up in Brownsburg, Indiana and has lived in Denver, Colorado and the West Country of England. Thus, she's blessed to have friends and family around the globe. Her family was (is) loopy (to say the least) but loopy is good when you want to write. They all lived together on a very small farm in a small farm town in the heartland. She grew up with Glenn Miller, The Everly Brothers, REO Speedwagon and Whitesnake (and the wardrobes that matched).

Needless to say, growing up in a house full of music, clothes and love was a good way to grow up.

And as she keeps growing, it keeps getting better.
