Let's start off by saying I am really loving this series and that this current story was such a treat for us and we loved it.

I loved the characters from the onset of the story.We loved Ryder and all his grumpiness.Savannah was such a sweet and loving mother.

I always pick a favorite character and mine this time around is going to be Ryder.Why? Well, for me Ryder went through so many changes in his personality in this story that we could not help but, be proud of him for all the healing he had gon

What an enjoyable fun chance to read about the Insurgent MC again. This is the holiday book and the twelfth in the series. I have also read every single one. They keep getting better and better. This was different in a way of what I have come to expect from this author. The writing is great and so were the people and the pace. A perfect holiday treat to sit by the fire and have a cup of cocoa. I love reading holiday books get me in the feeling of the holiday season.

All I want for Christmas is Ryder‼

Christmas Wish is a great addition to the Insurgents MC Series. Ryder Rossi is an inactive member of the club but not forgotten by his brothers for a second. Injured from his last tour in Afghanistan, he suffers just as much mentally as he does from the physical pain after the loss of his leg. How can a tough, alpha biker sit on the sideline as a spectator with limitations without losing a part of himself? He’s crabby and wants to be left alone, but is profoundl

Lordy... Lordy... Lordy... is what I said after reading this book. I had this song in my head called Issues by Julia Michaels and man does this song describe Savannah and Ryder to a tee. I loved their story it was such a roller coaster ride for me. I laughed and I cried. I loved Timmy he was such a sweet boy who wanted his mother happy.

What a fantastic addition to the series! From the very beginning I was drawn in and the characters kept me hooked from start to finish!

Ryder, oh my! I've had a thing for him for a while, even though he hasn't been an active member, and therefore not around much in other books. But every time he's made an appearance I've swooned over this man! I'm so happy he finally got his own book.

Savannah and Timmy need someone in like Ryder and the Insurgents in their lives. And Ryder definitely needs them.

Yet again another fantastic story in The Insurgents MC Series, with Ryder and Savannah two very broken souls but in the mix of a blizzard these two people might just find what they both need. Maybe Christmas miracles really do happen. It’s always great to catch up with the members of the Insurgents MC the love and respect they have for each other, they might be big scary bikers but they will always have your back. This is a passionate and emotional tale, the chemistry is off the charts between R ...more

A person can never go wrong with a Chiah Wilder book, no matter what time the year it is, and Christmas Wish was a fantastic story, with a dash of holiday magic and a big side of grit! It made for a most epic combo that I couldn't get enough of! Savannah Carlton is on the run from a most disgusting husband who has crossed the line, and this time she's not taking anymore from him, so she & her tiny human son, Timmy, are going to find a place to start over away from his rich family's influence ...more

Merry Christmas to ME!

I love that we get a Christmas story out of the Insurgents this year! And this story really got to me on a couple different levels. Kids, women running from her horrible husband, and an injured military man. All the perfect ingredients for a 5 star read.

This story started off intense right away and the fear and trepidation did not quit until the end where I was finally able to take a breath.

A wonderful holiday read

Do you know what i love best about Chiah Wilder? The fact that she can write about flawed and imperfect characters and i can still fall for them. Ryder Rossi just happens to be a perfect example of this.

Ryder is a man whose life was dramatically altered by his last tour in Afghanistan. He now carries the burden of both his physical and emotional scars. Even though there is a caring loving man under his rough exterior, he is a man who prefers to be left alone. Until a snow

I have to say that I feel like its been forever since I've read an Insurgents book. So I was more than happy when I saw that Mrs. Wilder was coming out with another Insurgents Christmas story.

I really enjoyed Ryder. He's an unoffical member of the Insurgents. He's also a man that being hiding out ever since he lost his leg on his last tour of duty. I thought that even though he was moody and grumpy at times you could tell he had a heart of gold underneath.

4.5* Ryder's ex treated him horribly when he came home from the war and what she said and did is on replay his head all the time. He doesn't do Christmas anymore, what's the point? His brothers in the club still check on him and wants him to be more active but he's ok with just staying at his cabin and venturing to the clubhouse every once in a while.

So worth the wait, these two are just so perfect together. Running from their pasts and trying to look for a future, one would never guess what a blizzard had in store. RYDER the inactive Insurgent and ex military amputee lives a sheltered hermit life and he likes it that way only going to the clubhouse for the club girls.

This story was a wonderful treat to those of us who have fallen in love with the Insurgents MC throughout the series and to those who have yet to partake in this series. This can most definitely be a standalone. This book was sweet, touching, heartbreaking, heart warming, sexy, one that will anger you and its one that you will fall in love with.

Two people who aren't looking for love find each other and help the other with their broken pieces. Both have insecurities and heartbreak from their past

This is a sexy, sweet and at times heartbreaking holiday romance. Savannah and Ryder both have their demons, some further in the past than others. When a snowstorm puts these two on the same path a connection is hard to resist. Ryder has been hurt in more ways than one and is used to his isolation from most of the world. He enjoys his peace and quiet, but he learns he enjoys Savannah and her son’s company as well. Savannah is running from a more recent nightmare, doing everything

So, when I saw Christmas Wish by Chiah Wilder, I was excited to see a holiday romance story with one of my favorite MC’s, The Insurgents.

Chiah Wilder writes about rough, sexy men who know how to treat their women.

Always a lover of books, she began writing at a young age and continued through college with collections of short stories. Figuring she had to grow up and get a “real” job, her writing was placed on the back burner.

Her love of reading has always been center front in her life. Chiah’s love of bad boys both in and out of fic
