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.

Casey Says…..

It is no secret that I LOVE Kristen Ashley, she is hands down my favorite author in the universe, and I have yet to read something by her that I did not enjoy. Fire Inside was no exception- while it was not an over the top favorite of mine as most of her books are, it was still fantastic and a definite recommendation for anyone who loves a dirty talking, MC badass.

I went in with a visual of Hopper Kincaid that was old and washed up- where this formed in my head, I have no idea (I am guessing Motorcycle Man where he was first introduced) and I did not expect to care for this book to much, if at all. Boy, was I wrong- Hop is super WOAH, and he can turn on the sweet that will melt panties right off.  While he is aggressive and straight- forward, he is also a caring and protective father and that bleeds over to his relationship with our heroine.

”You mean somethin’ to me in a way, for a man, he wants the world to know it. I’m proud you’re on my arm in my bed and I want to share that with my family. Don’t keep takin’ that away from me.”

Oh and did I mention he is a dirty talker, well it’s worth repeating…………………:::SWOON:::

“You’re very arrogant, Hopper Kincaid.” “Yeah, well, man gets that way when a woman that looks like you comes as hard as I can make you come.”

We first met Lanie in Motorcycle Man, where she was introduced to us as Tyra’s best friend. Fast forward 7/8 years and she is back on the scene still healing from losing her fiancé and setting off a chain of events that put both her and Tyra’s life in ultimate danger.  After a one night agreement of hot sex, Hop finds that he wants more. He sees the inner turmoil she is fighting after the tragedy she went through and he wants to be the one to save her.

“At your back baby, now and always”

“You’re right. I’m shit scared of taking the risk of feeling the fullness of how much I love you.”

This is what I love most about KA- she writes highly entertaining, happy stories with super sexy guys and likable heroines.  Her stories make me laugh, swoon, scream and burn. It would be a total five star read for me, but in comparison to her other work, it just feel slightly short.




About Kristen Ashley

Kristen Ashley was born in Gary, Indiana, USA and nearly killed her mother and herself making it into the world, seeing as she had the umbilical cord wrapped around her neck (already attempting to accessorise and she hadn’t taken her first breath!). Her mother said they took Kristen away, put her Mom back in her room, her mother looked out the window, and Gary was on fire (Dr. King had been assassinated four days before). Kristen’s Mom remembered thinking it was the end of the world. Quite the dramatic beginning.

Nothing’s changed.

Kristen grew up in Brownsburg, Indiana and has lived in Denver, Colorado and the West Country of England. Thus, she’s blessed to have friends and family around the globe. Her family was (is) loopy (to say the least) but loopy is good when you want to write. They all lived together on a very small farm in a small farm town in the heartland. She grew up with Glenn Miller, The Everly Brothers, REO Speedwagon and Whitesnake (and the wardrobes that matched).

Needless to say, growing up in a house full of music, clothes and love was a good way to grow up.

And as she keeps growing, it keeps getting better.
