Fading away is a bitch.

Allyson Lindt's "Hard Flip" is the first book in the "Ridden Hard" series. "Hard Flip" isn't your typical skater boyfriend book. It isn't your average billionaire romance either. It's also not like other fake engagement stories. This is Allyson Lindt, so nothing is ordinary! The characters are amazing and there are great sex scenes, as usual. The plot elements combine in a new and interesting ways. I can't wait to read #2!

I’m a longtime fan of Allyson Lindt, having been reading - and loving - her wonderful books since the very first one came out. No surprise that I was (figuratively at least) jumping for joy when Hard Flip (the first book in her new Ridden Hard series) came out. Also no surprise that this was a fantastically enjoyable billionaire romance tale that demonstrates just how great a story teller Allyson Lindt is.

That, in a nutshell, is most of what I typically write in a review, other than noting if t

When I read the blurb for this one, I'll admit that my first thought was 'another fake romance'. But, Allyson Lindt has surprised me before, so I cracked it open and dived in. Once again, this author has given readers a well-written, engaging romance that kept me turning pages. I absolutely loved Mischa with his big heart and determination to go after what he wants. Ash is typical of Lindt's heroines with her quirky personality and put it right out there attitude about her geekdom. She does have ...more

This was a totally surprising and wonderful book to read. Ash is unemployed and trying to support herself and her 14 year old sister, Kelly but things just don't seem to be going their way. While at a local skateboard park she meets Mischa who happens to be Kelly's idol but who's life is totally unknown to Ash. Integral to the storyline is how their lives become intertwined through several seemingly non related circumstances. There are so many ups and downs and things that kept me wondering if t ...more

This is the start of a new exciting and sexy series sure to be a hit with all geek loving readers! Sassy back talk and witty dialogue keep the story moving along at a goo ...more

This was less ‘geeky’ than I was expecting it to be. It still contains several random, wonderful pop-culture references and the heroine is a database administrator, so it does meet my nerd-girl qualifications. Mischa is sweet and charming, impulsive and sometimes clueless, but those just make him more human and more lovable. Ash’s history is painful and occasionally difficult to read without feeling her pain. People I know and care about have been affected by some of what she’s gone through and ...more

This is my first read by this author and I am so glad I gave this book a try! As a huge fan of this genre and Billionaire Romances in general, I'm always a little skeptical when a new one comes out because, let's face it, how many can you have, really? Well, this book is living proof that you cannot have enough! This story is flawlessly written and keeps the reader riveted to a great story, with well developed and intriguing characters, both ones you love to love and ones you love to hate! There ...more

Absolutely loved this book. Mischa is a former professional skateboarder who now is a Real Estate Developer. Ash is trying to find a new job while raising her 14-year old sister, Kelly, since their wealthy father didn't seem to care to do the job. The two meet at a skate boarding park and although Ash had no idea who Mischa was, her little sister did. Sparks fly from first glance. Buy this book and go on a wild ride full of humor, hot romance, facing demons, outwitting your opponent, starting ov ...more

I absolutely loved Ash and Mischa's story! It was a very enjoyable read!

Mischa is a total charmer, and all around good guy. Ash has had a hard life, but is doing her best to make a good life for her little sister, Kelly. There isn't anything she won't do for her, including agreeing to a fake engagement.

Their story is full of passion, drama, jealousy, humor and so much more. You can't help but love the characters and want what is best for them, want them to get what they want, and when things go

What a great story, I loved Ash and Mischa's story. He's a former skateboarding championship who now is the owner of a successful commercial real estate business. He's trying to overcome his wild reputation and clean up his image in order to appear more professional. He meets Ash who is taking care of her younger sister who is a skateboarder and sees Mischa. Their chemistry is strong and he convinces her to be his fake fiance. Lots of drama, miscommunication, family problems, and more drama. It' ...more

Love this book. Hard Flip is a fake fiance story with some page-turning twists. The dynamics between Ash and Misha are hot and steamy from the beginning. The plot and story arcs are well developed and flow smoothly...always a good thing. There is a lot going on in this book, between the relationship with Ash and Misha, Ash's sister and father, and the business drama. It all blends and overlaps seamlessly, making for a fun, intense, steamy, heartfelt read. I have no qualms about recommending this ...more

Another well written Allyson Lindt story that flowed effortlessly from the beginning to the end! There was a good blend of angst, conflict, and some steamy romance. Ash was her own worst enemy – conflicted by her past and struggling with self-doubt in her present. I loved Mischa and Ash as a couple, but could she overcome her insecurities enough to allow a real relationship with Mischa? I’m looking forward to “Hard Pack”, book 2 in this series.

I received an ARC for an honest review. This is a great start to the series and can't wait to read more. I liked Ash and Mischa’s story. The sparks flew when they first met at a skatepark. Ash was applying for a job and noticed some security flaws within the website. Along with her resume, she sent screenshots of the security flaws. Mischa thinks the guy who sent in the screenshots is blackmailing him, so he goes out to find him. He’s surprised when Ash answers the door. It’s a great story and d ...more

Loved the story between Ash and Mischa, what amazing characters these are. She is struggling with trying to raise her sister and he is struggling trying to figure out where his life is going after the xgames. When they meet the chemistry is there, and with one tiny lie they become much more. These two have face a few obstacles trying to be and stay together and one is Ash's own mind.

I love Allyson Lindt stories, as their always fill of geekdom, subtle nerdiness, and the characters are strong, no matter what life throws at them. And, this story is no exception.

Now that I'm finished reading the story, my heart was shredded and put back together so beautifully in this story that I'm sitting here in awe. The amazing talent Allyson has to weave a story that is relateable, is phenomenal, and I love each of her stories. If this is your first glimpse of her work, grab them all, bec

Ash is a geeky and sweet girl with a side of feistiness to her. When her sister tells her how excited she is to have met Mischa, former world championship skateboarder-turned-real estate mogul, it's fun and steamy times at its best. The dialogue was engaging and lively, and their chemistry was so hot. Great job with this geek and billionaire romance!

Hard Flip had me falling hard...

Falling for these characters. I love that though hey have baggage both Ash and Misha know how to adult. They have instant attraction but have to really work for the relationship. This book draws you into their lives. It is so easy to read I couldn't put it down. The strength in both of these characters just bowled me over.

*I was gifted this ARC and freely give my review of it*

This was a very good story and I could not stop reading because the story was so engaging.

Ash is living with her sister and is trying to take care of them both but she struggles to find work in a field that’s male dominated and without education it’s even worse. Then she meets a man that need to hire a fiancé, is this the solution to her struggles?

The storyline is good and with a little twist in the end just to make it even more intriguing.

This story wasn't bad - just didn't work out completely for me. It was flat in some big matters. I wanted to love it so much... I just couldn't.
Ash seemed little too childish. And Misha was not an alpha material he should be.
