DIRTY RIDE (Wind Dragons MC 3.5) by Chantal Fernando-a review
ABOUT THE BOOK: Release Date February 8, 2016
Even by Wind Dragon Motorcycle Club standards, Irish was always a bit of a dark horse. Not one to confide his secrets, such as where he got that mysterious scar across his neck, he’s quick with his fists and even quicker to jump to the defense of his MC. But is he nimble enough to handle the woman he never saw coming? Or will she leave him with a matching scar across his heart?
Featuring scorching hot chemistry and plenty of sass, Dirty Ride is sure to rev your engine and get you immediately hooked!
REVIEW: DIRTY RIDE is installment 3.5 and latest novella in Chantal Fernando’s contemporary, adult WIND DRAGONS MC romance series focusing on the men and women of the Wind Dragons MC. This is biker Ardan (Irish) and Valentina (Tina) story line. DIRTY RIDE can be read as a stand alone without any difficulty.
Told from first person point of view (Tina) with an epilogue from Ardan, DIRTY RIDE finds our heroine on the run from an abusive ex-boyfriend who is determined to take back what he believes belongs to him. Enter Ardan, a member of the Wind Dragon MC, and the man who would protect Tina with his life.
The relationship between Ardan and Tina is a quick build from friendship to a declaration of love within a matter of days. Tina readily accepts Ardan and the MC into her life, knowing that at some point in the future, she may need their help when her ex comes looking to take her home. The sex scenes are mostly implied.
DIRTY RIDE focuses on the relationship between Ardan and Tina, and therefore the MC lifestyle and Club are secondary to the story line. Because the story is told from Tina’s POV, there is very little outside information brought into the story except to which our heroine is witness. The writing is simple; there is very little world building and the character development is limited to current story line-we know very little out our leading hero. The premise is a quick read; the romance is case of insta-love; the happily ever after holds a few secrets that may come back in the future.
