Well, Heather Leigh outdid herself this time!! I LOVED Burning Desire & could not wait to read this one. And, WOW!! I was extremely glad I did. If you read the 1st book & thought Chase was fine & hot as hell. Well, Nicole is one lucky girl. She has Hunter (Chase's friend) & Jeremy (Roxy's brother & Chase's oldest best friend) and man are they BOTH fine, strong and let's not forget sexy as hell!! And, they both are doing everything to win Nicole. Heather upped the steaminess and added extra hot into it as well.
Ride Hard picked up right where Burning Desire left off, with Roxy & Chase. They finally got their HEA. Now, we jump right into the Jeremy/Nicole/Hunter triangle. What a triangle it is!
Nicole hasn't had the easiest life. Luckily for her, she's always had Roxy in her corner. Jeremy has always been there as well. We learn a lot about her past and the struggles she's had to overcome. In almost every part of Nicole's life, good and bad there's Jeremy! Jeremy & Roxy's dad also looks at Nicole as a daughter. She also has the MC.
Nicole and Jeremy have been fighting this attraction for years. Just when you think they're going to give in to temptation, think again!! Jeremy tells Nicole where to go AGAIN and this time she's had it. Nicole ends up landing into the arms of Hunter.
Man, what I would give to have him catch me! Hunter is all man with a soft spot. He really does care about Nicole. But, Hunter is far from stupid. Hunter can see how Jeremy & Nicole look at each other. Every time you turn around they are standing too close. Hunter totally plans not to go down without a fight.
This is not the only drama going on. The MC is on very high alert. After everything that went down getting Roxy back, the Devil's MC wants revenge. And, by revenge I mean blood. Nobody is allowed to go anywhere alone.
Nicole is still living with Jeremy. She usually has either Jeremy or Hunter with her at all times. She's still working at the club & still owns her own studio. Nicole really is a bad ass girl! The way she uses her body to get under Jeremy's skin. Or dancing at the club when she's performing. She's not afraid to pull a gun on someone if she has too.
Every time Nicole & Jeremy are together I'd end up laughing. One minute they are ready to jump the other one. Then, they are fighting over Nicole forgetting to lock the door. Jeremy secretly loves Nicole living with him. But, he'd never say that out loud.
Hunter & Nicole have a different relationship. Hunter is all about Nicole. In every way. Man, what that man can do with his tongue should be illegal!! Hunter wants Nicole to be his "Old Lady" and isn't afraid to let her know about it.
Jeremy heads out of town to do some checking up on the Devils MC. While there he continues to make Hunter & Nicole's lives miserable. Which by the way, I loved!! He runs into Nina. Cute, sexy and ready for anything Jeremy has plans. He has a good time with her & decides to bring her home.
Jeremy wasn't prepared for what happened after he brought Nina home. Even though Nicole & Nina are at each others throats. He secretly loves it because it lets him know he hasn't lost Nicole to Hunter for good. It's when his clubhouse gets attacked by the Devils MC. Jax wants revenge & has planned it out perfectly. Nina isn't who she claims to be. And, a HUGE HUGE bomb about Nicole gets dropped that nobody saw coming. Especially, Nicole. Nicole then makes a decision to save Jeremy the man who she loves deep down & the MC that has become her family.
Heather apparently likes to leave us hanging. Every book the cliffhanger gets BIGGER then the last one! This book was fast paced. It had everything in it. The ONLY thing that really disappointed me was the lack of Roxy & Chase. Jeremy & Chase are oldest best friends. Who were inseparable. The same with Roxy & Nicole. In Burning Desire Roxy & Chase went to Nicole and Jeremy. Yet, in this one it wasn't. They were in the beginning & the end. I was very upset about that. Other then that, I have no complaints. There was more action, hotness & the sex. Was totally bumped up. I bounced around for who I wanted Nicole with. Team Hunter. Team Jeremy. It's hard to choose. But, I can honestly say Jeremy did more for me. All the way :) I can not wait Reckless Abandon. I'm dying for more of Hunter's story.

About The Author-
Deciding to write books was something I had contemplated for a while. A co-worker of mine had gotten me started me on the 50 Shades Trilogy. I had quickly became absorbed! Reading contemporary romance had become a part of me. Little did I know that my daughter was a product of the “50 Shades Baby Boom”! I remember going to my doctor’s appointment to find out that we were off to labor and delivery- and I didn’t download any new books to my kindle! Talk about bummed out! However, I made up for that when I was home for my maternity leave. I believe we read 40+ books while I was home.
I am a full time new mom, and wife. Yes, I do work full time, I am currently doing multiple things, bouncing back after baby, weight watchers, exercising, training for a 5k, reading and writing. So far, I have really enjoyed writing as a hobby.
My work book club, “HE” had consumed us (and by us, I mean 2). We were critics of the stories and characters. I then thought to myself, “hmm, I bet I could write stories just like this, and have them turn out like I’d want them to.” Well, joking turned into thinking. Thinking turned into brainstorming. Brainstorming lead to opening a word document and letting my mind explore.
Growing up I had written short stories with friends, and as extra credit for school. This is probably where it all started… I had turned in one of my short stories without re-reading, or editing it completely. I had my paper returned to me saying the “content was inappropriate.” Apparently contemporary romance was frowned upon in English class! Oops! So maybe I was destined to become a writer.
I thought to myself that I want to live in this world and make a difference and have a part of me in history after I leave. This is me staying forever young.
Here I will post my journey, it’s a learning experience for me, so please bear with me.
If you have any questions, comments, concerns, recommendations- I welcome them all.
