Fire Inside (Chaos #2) by Kristen Ashley

Lanie Heron isn't looking for love-no surprise, considering her last serious relationship nearly got her killed. So when Lanie propositions Hop Kincaid, all she wants is one wild night with the hot-as-hell biker who patrols with the Chaos Motorcycle Club . . .

For Hop, Lanie has always been untouchable. She's too polished and too classy for his taste. But when she gives Hop the once-over with her bedroom eyes and offers him a night in paradise, he can't say no. And he doesn't regret it when he finds that Lanie is the best thing that's ever happened to him-in or out of bed. Now the trick will be to convince her of that.

4/5 stars

I love Kristen Ashley and have loved every one of her books that I've read so far, but I wasn't as excited by this book. It might be because I never warmed up to either character. Lanie was always the dumb bitch that followed her equally dumb ass boyfriend who was on the run from the mob. I've watched enough movies and read enough books to know that dealing with the mob in any fashion is a huge fucking mistake. And for some reason I always pictures Hop as an older overweight biker, so imagine my surprise to find out he was a tight hot guy who's just misunderstood. There also wasn't really anything going on but sex and fighting. Where was the kidnapping, the bad guys doing bad guy stuff, the gunfights and explosions? Granted there was a tiny gunfight (that had already been dealt with in the last book) and Benito's guys showed up for a couple paragraphs, but the usual KA drama wasn't there. Hopefully in the next book we'll get the over-the-top drama that I've come to relate to Ms. Ashley. Will I recommend this book? Absolutely. Will I read it again? Probably not, cause there are too many other KA books that are much better. At this point all the guys are starting to run together (they all look alike, talk alike and act alike) while the ladies are nice, polite, put together. Where are the crazy ladies like the Rock Chicks?
