‘The moment I sat across him in that booth last night, I had him pegged. Tormented and broody, secrets running amok in his head, angry at the world, but willing to give it a shot regardless. In a way, Niyol and I were kind of alike. I, too, wanted a new shot at life. A shot where I could just be me, forgoing my past and my pains for a chance at reinventing myself. Who I was as a woman, most of all. No longer would I be someone’s second in life.’
Her Wild Ride by Heather Van Fleet is our first book by this Author and we fell in love with her writing and her characters. This story really is a story of two halves. The first half is a slow burn romance between two people from very different walks of life. They are placed in a situation of close proximity, over a lengthy road trip, where the author does a stellar job of establishing a growing connection by fleshing out her characters. Their past, present and their need for new beginnings.
This wasn’t a typical MC romance, well, not like one we’ve read before. Rather than jumping straight into the MC life, Her Wild Ride is all about the characters, with the MC world set as a background until the latter part of the story. We loved this story-telling and truly connected with both Niyol and Summer, individually and as a couple. We wholeheartedly believed in their ‘opposites attract’ romance, so when the MC world caught up with them we felt all the angst and emotion.
