Ok this is truthfully a first for me.

This is the first time in all of my reading experience that I simply could NOT finish the book. I started to get frustrated at the 15% mark and then I barely managed to get past the 40% mark...I just couldn't take it anymore.

I mean, FOR THE LOVE OF JEBUS! the writing was just comical...and not in a funny haha way, but in a seriously WTF way.

My thoughts while reading it? ummmmm

The writing didn't flow. It was choppy. The conversations between the characters was

ABSOLUTELY AWFUL. Totally serious ... this was just terrible. Both Hope and I agree, this was just BAD [not good bad, bad bad!].

How bad? I've had my Kindle for a year and have about 500 books purchased. This was the first book [only so far] I've returned for a refund. SERIOUS bad shite!

Have I told you how awful this was? Hmm... Are you listening?

A bit torn about this book. It was alright or okay but not to the extent of some other MC/Biker books I have read. The heroine was too hot-n-cold for me to really enjoy her as a character but I love the moment she kicks that woman's you-know-what. Girl power! And thats about it. The hero was reminiscent of Kristen Ashley's heroes but very tame by comparison. I've been too spoiled by Kristen Ashley and Madeline Sheehan to bask in this book, however it is not terrible by any means it's just
Carrie (Badass, Alpha-male, Cowboy Connoisseur )
I tried, I really did. Twice even. I just couldn't do it. The storyline reminded me of a show from the Discovery Channel (The Devil's Ride) and a very poorly executed copy of a Kristen Ashley Alpha-Male.

I know, I know, there are a lot of you that really liked this. Thank goodness we all get to have our own opinions. This book may do it for you but, it didn't even come remotely close for me.

I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion

Ella has just graduated from college and is off to Del Mar to start her first teaching job, when she goes out for drinks with a co-worker and sees Ryder. She has been lusting after Ryder since she embarrassed herself in front of him and his MC club last summer. Ryder has been thinking about Ella since their run in as well and when she walks into his bar he knows he has to have her. Ella is fighting off unwanted advances from a co-wo

This review contains a bit of cussing, snark and possible spoilers.

Per the author’s profile...

“As the result of a joke between three friends by the names of Jillian Moores, Maegan Rowe and Tanya Baikie, the book Wilde Ride was born.”

The H's name... Ryder Wilde. *snort* Seriously? Am I on candid camera? Are these 3 ladies just goofin' to see how much $$ they can make off us Gullible Romance Addicts with a Biker Fetish?

And so for the first 25-50% of the book, watching the overwrought

Okay where to begin.. This book was awesome.. I loved Ryder & Ella was funny as shit but sometimes a bit too quick to jump to conclusions but really who isnt sometimes when you find yourself in a situation where you can be hurt.. With that being said she was a better female character than some of the ones ive read. there's worse ones out there.. This book was basically a wanna be Kristen Ashley book. Now of course even IF the author didn't mention Kristen Ashley in her book you would KNOW an ...more
I was really excited about this book. I couldn't wait to buy it from Amazon once I heard about it.

Unfortunately, it missed the mark for me. It wasn't horrible but it wasn't a great 5 star read for me either.

I don't know if I had high expectations or if I was comparing it to Mystery Man and Undeniable but it didn't measure up for me.

However, I did enjoy buddy reading this with Laci and JoJo.

I will admit, I'm curious about the second book and what happens to the characters, so I'll probably rea

If you’ve read any of my previous reviews, you know that I’m pretty forgiving when it comes to indie authors, especially when it comes to their first published book. I can put up with a lot, as in run on sentences, grammatical errors, lack of scene dividers, rough transitions, etc. The reason being is that the author can always have it (re)edited and release an updated copy to do away with any errors that happen to be distracting.

With that being said, let’s get to this debut book from a new indi

WARNING: If you liked this book, please proceed with caution as I am not going to be nice.

1.5 stars is as high as I can go on this.

Ugh, okay, first off, isn't Ella supposed to be an English teacher? What English, what human being uses the phrases "OMG" and "WTF" in their inner monologue? Are you honestly that lazy you can't even think in full sentences? And as an English teacher shouldn't she have read Romeo and Juliet? I have a very hard time believing she has seeing as she thinks

I really hate writing reviews when I can’t do anything but rave about the story :( I tried my hardest to love this story because I normally can’t resist a story with bad ass bikers in it but the female character, Ella, in this story drove me crazy!!

Ella is graduating from college at the top of her class and moving out to California to teach high school like she always wanted to do and hopefully run into the SEXY biker that helped her out last summer when she ran into a light pole while there. S

I want to thank Lesley at My Keeper Shelf for introducing me to this book in her list of Favorite Bad Ass Biker Books:

I am always on the look out for more sexy badass biker books and I definitely enjoyed Wilde Ride ~ especially the epilogue that was told from Ryder's point of view!! So good!!! I have to say that while I LOVED Ryder, Ella did get on my nerves a bit but overall an entertaining read and I'm looking forward to the next book in the series abou

Wilde Ride was a pleasant surprise. This story had many different layers to it, The was the two main character's romance, and way too many bad guys. Some where obvious and one really took me by surprise. the Epilogue was a great touch to end this story.

I thought the story had great potential but fell short for me. The story line moved way to fast for me. I enjoy getting to know the character and with the pace of this book I didn't feel I got a chance to do that.

Ella Scott our 22 year old virgin has just graduated from college, dumped her boyfriend of two years (that she did not sleep with) and moved to California because she enjoyed the weather there once. Like what the fukk?
So, what is wrong with the sentence above?
1. No guy in college will date a girl for two years without having sex. Common sense.
2. She dumps her boy next door good looking boyfriend because she has been feeling sisterly towards him.

With that being said I have to say I love me some bad ass biker men! Lord I have gone to a few biker bars and lord have mercy you just have no idea what goes on in there. Plus the hot ass biker men you see in there makes you need a cold bucket of ice water to cool the hormones!

I have to say that these girls first book that was supposed to be a joke turned out to be a hot seller. They have it dow
I'm torn. I don't really know what to say about this book. It had a few redeeming qualities, but for the most part, it just fell short. I think the premise was an awesome idea but it just didn't work out in the end. Ella was just.... I didn't like her. Ryder was ok but not the type of biker I expected. There were quite a few things that annoyed me, but not enough to dnf. My biggest issue is the dialogue. One minute Ryder talks like a human, but then Ella is talking like a robot, and I just got a ...more

My book buddy and I picked this book because it had a few of our favorite things, tattooed, motorcycle riding alpha-male. While I ended up liking the story of Ella and Ryder, it too a bit too long to really get moving. The first half of the book made me ask my book buddy if I should stick with it, to which she said yes. The beginning of Ella and Ryder's relationship was cheesy and move way too fast. I realize we have books where they are in love after a week or even a few days, but the surroundi ...more

ok ok! I hate to be so hard on this book but i just can't seem to like the heroine for very long periods of time. I mean for gods sake one minute she was fighting and the next she was seriously freaking out. I did like ryder would have liked to hear more about his club but ehh he was pretty hot so i can overlook it! It was a great book but for the story to have been what it was you didn't hear any background on others in the book! I ready did enjoy this book but its the small things that make it ...more

I give it 3.5 stars

It was an easy read. Ella was a bit quirky. Ryder needed a smidge more alpha. Smut was good. Overall, it was okay. Looking forward to Payton and Jack's story. They were pretty hot in this one. I can only imagine how they will be in their own book.
Spoiler Whore says calm your tits people, it's just a book
I don't know how many eye rolls, shaking head, ugh's and oh that's just bad I said or did while reading this story. I see the potential but it fell waaaaaay flat.

To each his own. Maybe some will like it better than me but I've got nothing else to say. *shrugs shoulders*

This was a good book, I like Ryder and Ella they where great together but there relationship went really fast it was like they said I love you in a week that was great for me because I'm a sucker for a love at first sight romance. Ella was a little needy very rash with her decisions she never thought before she did something she just went with it. Ryder was a Alpha male with a heart he new what he wanted and went for it and he wanted Ella. This was the first book I read when the heroin gets stoc

Gosh, haven't been this disappointed about a book in a while. Caution: brutally honest review.

Imagine a very very poor imitation of Kristen Ashley. In fact that author was even mentioned in this book to suggest she was trying to channel her in her writing, but fell very far short from replicating her talent. This is far from being a Chaos novel although storyline seeks to portray that.

Hate being harsh here, but this book was so badly written. Grammatically it was mostly fine, but story developm

Well after reading lots of mixed reviews i didn't know what i would find with this book, and i might be on my own with this but I FREAKING LOVED IT.

Ryder might not have been the most Alpha of characters that i've read about but he was certainly bad ass and very hot! That is fine with me.. i love an alpha as much as the next girl but sometimes they can drive me insane! (I still love them though!) this way it was a refreshing change to love them ALL the way through. He was cock

So, I am a huge SoA fan and also love MC type books like Undeniable and Motorcycle Man so I guess I had high hopes for this book.

There were parts that I liked and then some not so much.

I liked the story line and the suspense. I liked the idea of Ella and Ryder but I didn't feel their connection. It felt to forced and awkward. which caused the dialogue in some places to have me in stitches when it was not meant to be funny.

By the end though I had started to like and feel Ella and Ryder. I did
