{eARC Romance Review} Ride Steady (Chaos #3) by Kristen Ashley

Ride Steady (Chaos, #3)

Ride Steady (Chaos #3) by

The ride of her life . . . Once upon a time, Carissa Teodoro believed in happy endings. Money, marriage, motherhood: everything came easy---until she woke up to the ugly truth about her Prince Charming. Now a struggling, single mom and stranded by a flat tire, Carissa's pondering her mistakes when a vaguely familiar knight rides to her rescue on a ton of horsepower.

Climb on and hold tight . . .
In high school, Carson Steele was a bad boy loner who put Carissa on a pedestal where she stayed far beyond his reach. Today, he's the hard-bodied biker known only as Joker, and from the way Carissa's acting, it's clear she's falling fast. While catching her is irresistible, knowing what to do with her is a different story. A good girl like Carissa is the least likely fit with the Chaos Motorcycle Club. Too bad holding back is so damned hard. Now, as Joker's secrets are revealed and an outside threat endangers the club, Joker must decide whether to ride steady with Carissa---or ride away forever . . .

{Rating} 5/5 - I loved it!


I loved Ride Steady. Within the first few pages I was completely invested in Joker and Carissa's lives and could not put the book down.

Carissa is a sweet girl. She's been beaten down by life - it's still beating on her - but she hasn't lost that sweetness. She's kind, caring, generous, devoted - I absolutely adored her little guy Travis - and fierce when it comes to people she loves.

Joker is all kinds of awesome. He's smart, talented, hard, and just as fierce. He had life beat him down too, survived a horrific childhood, but he found his way out and found his way to a good life, a brotherhood and the career he'd always wanted. He's determined to keep his distance from Carissa but life keeps putting her in his path and soon he can't help but give in. I loved seeing him be sweet and protective and loving towards not only Carissa but Travis.

I liked the relationship between Carissa and Joker - after he gets over being a jerk (which is understandable once you get to know him). They're careful with each other, protective of each other and their relationship. It's not an easy path for them, Joker doesn't think he deserves her, Carissa has an evil ex making her life difficult, and there are issues in Chaos, but everything they have to survive makes their happily ever after so much sweeter.
