Get ready to ride . . .


Tyra Masters has had enough drama to last a lifetime. Now, she's back on track and looking forward to her new, quiet life. Until she meets the man of her dreams. The tattooed, muscled biker plies her with tequila-and the best sex of her life. She knows it isn't the tequila and hot sex talking. He's the kind of man she's always wanted. Unfortunately, he's also her new boss . . .

Kane "Tack" Allen has a rule. He doesn't employ someone he's slept with. So when he learns he spent last night in bed with his new office manager, he quickly fires Tyra. Yet when Tyra stands up to him and fights for her job, Tack is intrigued. He tells her she can keep her job on one condition: no more sex. Ever. But as things heat up between them, Tack finds that he'll be the one breaking all the rules...

Motorcycle Man is the final and concluding book of the Dream Man series and my heart is SO sad because Tack and Tyra’s book is over and no more dream man sexiness 🙁 I just had a blast with these books and it should mean something when I read the series in order and can’t function reading anything else. Kristen Ashley has won my heart AGAIN!!! These books were all amazing and I loved seeing the series come together in Motorcycle Man. Even though this isn’t my favorite book of the series ( I might have had super high expectations after reading the Chaos series with Tack and Tyra) —I believe that book one is still my favorite. However, I had a delightful time with Motorcycle Man and I didn’t want to put this book down.

“Uh… you pledged your troth to me, Tack. It’s not like you don’t know I get feisty.”

“I pledged my troth,” Tack repeated.

“Yeah.”

“You just said I pledged my troth.”

“Yes, that’s what I just said.”

“What’s a troth?”

“I don’t know, I just know you pledged it.”

Tyra and Tack meet at a bar at a biker party, sparks fly and they have hot sex and then Tack practically kicks Tyra out of his bed. Which is typical of your badass alpha biker male but Tyra is emotionally hurt because she has quickly fallen for Tack. Which I understand, some people can’t do the wham bam thank you ma’am one night stands (I am one of them, I get attached way too easily) so I understand that side of the heroine. Then she goes in to get a job as a office manager and who is her new boss….yep Tack and she knows she is in trouble because working for the man who broke her heart isn’t the easiest. And Tack is a jerk to her at first, ordering her around and yeah I wanted to kick him at times because he is so mean at times. But then there is a slow turn around. He wants Tyra and will fight for her. (My favorite quote below….try NOT to cry….I dare you)

“You may not know this baby, but some men have dream women too.”

“That movie you made me watch, first time at your house. Love and redemption. You said, ‘the most beautiful stories ever told are the most difficult to take’. You said that, Red. Right out. And I knew if you got that, when it was later and I shared my shit with you, you’d get me. I never thought my story was beautiful. I thought it was shit. But you said that and when you did, I saw it. The ride is not over but if I can keep my Club together and find a sweet, feisty woman who’s got my back and enough to her that she’ll stay there, holding me up not dragging me down, I figure I’d find my way to beauty eventually. And I’d find absolution because I’d know, I earned the love of that woman, a woman who’s got so much to her it’ll take years to dig down and find the heart of her, that would be my reward.”

Then we get to the sweet and delicious parts of the book where Tack goes after Tyra, proving his sincerity to her and introducing her to his children. And just seeing how much his kids Rush and Tabby just endear themselves to Tyra was so endearing. I loved seeing her relationship with the kids (who are in their late teens). But then we have the ex wife of Tack and she is horrid especially in how she treats her daughter. But Tyra is so bad ass when its needed and yeah you cross her or the people that she loves, watch out because she will kick your ass. I loved Tyra so much, and after seeing her character in the Chaos books, it was so fun to read her book and see her spirit and tenacity and what strong will that she has. She is the perfect match  for Tack in many ways, she stands her ground especially when its something she firmly believes in. She learns how to “handle” her man and that loving someone isn’t easy. We see some villains come into play and some we don’t see coming and we see all four men come together when the Russian Mob comes after Tack and Tyra. Despite the fact that they all have different agendas, their women are very close, and they all have respect for each other and seeing them work together as if they were brothers was EPIC and we see this bond grow throughout the four books and loved seeing it in the conclusion.

All I can say is that this book is truly amazing packs quite a punch. What I adore about these two is their sassy interactions and the fun bantering and I adore the development of their relationship and seeing this family really come together during both the good times and especially the bad times. They close ranks and when some bad stuff happens, Tack and Tyra and the two kids really show their true colors and what family is ALL about and I loved seeing it in this book. I know that children aren’t for everyone, but Rush and Tabby are older and more mature although they are still teenagers so they have their moments hehe but Tack and Tyra handle them so well.

We do see a growing plot dealing with the Russian Mob and seeing the ex wife show her true colors and seeing Tyra come face to face with what it means to be an old lady and the good points and the not so easy ones. Tyra isn’t sure she can be the biker lady that Tack really needs, but she proves that she fits and the club brothers show her that she is as much a part of them as Tack is. She is so devoted to Tack and his family and even his brothers, she will fight for them and defend them even if she doesn’t agree with their ways.

Life’s a roller coaster. Best damn ride in the park. You don’t close your eyes, hold on and wait for it to be over, babe. You keep your eyes open, lift your hands straight up in the air and enjoy the ride for as long as it lasts.

Overall I found Motorcycle Man to be a hit for me, KA has done wonders with this book and I found Tack and Tyra’s story to be truly an poignant and sassy romance that will leave you laughing and packed with good feels!! SENSATIONAL!


About Kristen Ashley

Kristen Ashley was born in Gary, Indiana, USA. She 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 accessorise and she hadn't taken her first breath!).

Kristen grew up in Brownsburg, Indiana but has lived in Denver, Colorado and the West Country of England. Thus she has been blessed to have friends and family around the globe. Her posse is loopy (to say the least) but loopy is good when you want to write.

Kristen was raised in a house with a large and multi-generational family. They lived on a very small farm in a small town in the heartland and existed amongst the strains of 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 up, it keeps getting better.
