The brother known as Hound has a reputation. He’s all about cracking heads, having a good time, and when the Chaos Motorcycle Club needs someone to do the tough job, they call on him.

But Hound has a secret. He fell in love with a woman years ago. She’s untouchable. Unattainable. And even when her status changes, for Hound, it remains the same.

Keely Black had it all early and lost it all not long after. Thrown into an abyss of loss and grief, she’s faced a life of raising two sons alone and battling the rage at all that had been ripped from them.

And why.

Words spoken in anger open Hound’s and Keely’s eyes. For Hound, he sees he’s wasted his life loving the wrong woman. Keely sees she’s wasting her life not opening herself to the love of a good man.

Wild Like the Wind is the 6th book in the Chaos series by Kristen Ashley. I had so much fun delving back into the biker world that she created. This particular story revolves around Hound and Keely. 17 years ago Keely’s husband Black was murdered by someone who turned against Chaos. Fast forward to present day and Keely is raising her two boys alone, but she has the love and support of the club behind her. Hound especially has helped whenever it was needed. Especially when it comes to her two boys, Dutch and Jagger. Hound has been in love with Keely for a long time, but as much as it hurts him, he’s been just her friend while helping to support her and the kids. Going after another brothers woman, even if that brother is dead is a line you do not cross. Well until Keely shows up at his place and presents him with an offer even he cannot refuse.
I loved these two together. Their chemistry is undeniable. Hound is extremely loyal and willing to help however he can. Keely is headstrong and sassy. She’s never afraid to say what’s on her mind. The romance is scorching hot. And just be warned that there is a good amount of sex throughout the story, especially at the beginning. There is some drama of course, but it was not over the top. Things seem to be gearing up for bigger drama events to unfold...possibly in the next book? My only complaint would be that Keely and Hound waited so long to be together. I can understand why they would wait, however I felt that it didn’t have to be as long as it was.
With that said, I loved pretty much everything about this book. I didn’t realize how much I had missed this crazy biker world, until I started reading WLTW. It was a fun and steamy read. I’ve been a fan of Kristen Ashley’s ever since I read The Gamble in 2012. I love the way she writes and the characters are always lovable and easy to connect with and or root for. Wild Like the Wind falls into this category. The story had a nice pace and I enjoyed every moment I got to spend with Hound and Keely.

RATING: 4½ out of 5.

Excerpt of Wild Like the Wind:

Baby, not sure you take your job serious enough,” he told her.
I have enough to handle with what I’ve got and that’s more serious than is cool. There are a lot of parents who do not give a fuck about their kids, Hound, not even a little bit. They care about their cars or their designer shoes and handbags. So many of them are Jeremy. So many, it isn’t even funny.”
Jeremy?” he asked.
Pearl Jam. ‘Jeremy,’” she answered. “Kids are not something Mom can wear. So they don’t give a fuck. They go shopping. The kids come home to an empty house but their bed is covered in shopping bags. They’ve got great clothes, the latest phone, hot wheels, and no love. But by the time they get to high school, Jeremy is not gonna be talking in class. That hurt is gonna have burned so down deep, no social worker attendance officer is gonna be able to heal it.”
Baby,” he whispered.
She was needlessly arranging food on his counter she wasn’t going to open until the beans were ready and studying herself doing it.
This should have been a clue.
Hound was tuned to her, very tuned, and still, he did not field that clue.
And he’d wish he did.
My boys thought it was a pain in the ass that we sat down to dinner every night. Every night. This was even before I heard this stuff from the kids, learned about it in school. I just know the way my folks were and the way…the way,” she lifted her eyes to him, “Graham came from money, but not the good kind, the up-its-own-ass kind. He didn’t fit and they treated him like shit.”
I know,” he said when she stopped speaking, watching her closely now that she’d brought Black right out there, right there, between them.
So we talked about it, him and me. And unless Club shit got in the way, we were going to have family dinner every night. Even if we got McDonald’s. We’d sit down and look in each other’s eyes and talk and ask about our days and let them know we gave a shit. I let them know I gave a shit. You know that. You’ve sat down to dinner with us.”
He nodded.
He had.
Not often.
But he had.
It’s really that easy,” she continued. “I swear to God. I gave my boys a lot. Chaos gave my boys a lot. But I swear, the most important thing I gave them was my time every day during dinner.”
You’re probably right, baby,” he agreed.
And you.”
Hound’s chest caved in on itself.
This was such an extreme sensation he had to push out his, “What?”
The only other thing I gave them that was important was not cutting them off from Chaos, which meant not cutting them off from you.”
