“Honest to God, this feeling is the only thing that really matters. Everything else can wait.”
Anyone who knows me and knows which authors I rate incredibly high will not be surprised when I say A. L. Jackson is absolutely one of my top favorites. I will read anything she writes, she could go and write a book about the evolution of grass growing and I would still read it, because I know without a shadow of a doubt that she would turn it into a breathtaking journey, with characters you just love and want to get to know, coupled with flawless writing to compliment the plot. One Wild Ride is book two in the Hollywood Chronicles series which A.L. is collaborating with Rebecca Shea and I really enjoyed the second one as much as I did the first.
Elle Ward is the daughter of one of Hollywood’s most famous and influential directors and she has one rule; never get involved with actors. Elle has no idea what she is in store for when she accidently hits a man on his motorcycle with her car.
The man who was injured on his motorcycle is a smoking hot underwear model called Kas who also happens to be an up and coming Hollywood actor. He is set to become the next big thing in Tinsel Town and has no time for women. Kas is attracted to Elle almost instantly, but Elle has a distrust for Hollywood actors because she had been hurt and taken advantage of by them. She has given her heart out freely only to have actors be with her for all the wrong reasons. So she has built a wall of steel in order to protect her heart.
“Sometimes falling in love is impossible not to do, and when you do it, you do it hard.”
Kas is determined to become a permanent fixture in Elle’s life. He is determined for Elle to see that he is the real deal and wants to be with Elle for who she really is and not what she is in order to fast track his career. Elle has reservations with good reason, but will she open her heart to Kas and learn to trust again?
I loved both Kas and Elle. Elle is surprisingly strong and independent despite whom her father is, while Kas is swoon worthy beyond all belief; he is sweet, fun and cheeky. They had an intense bond that only grew stronger the more you read and the chemistry was electrifying, it made me believe that true love really does exist and that they belonged together forever.
“Sometimes it only took one moment to change everything.”
One Wild Ride was a fun, sweet and fast paced story that kept my interests peaked throughout and was one that I thoroughly enjoyed. If you are looking to read a quick and steamy story to get your romance fix, then look no further than One Wild Ride. Kas is sure to make you swoon.
