One Ride ebook cover 2 (1)

Synopsis

Delilah “Doll” Reklinger never imagined her life with anyone that wasn’t a Hellion.  She never imagined there would be a Hellion that could prove himself worthy enough to her father, Roundman, Hellions Club President.  Content in living in the bubble of safety the motorcycle club family has always provided, Doll never thought that danger surrounded her.

Roundman has kept the Hellions contained for the last thirty years by controlling the chaos surrounding their lifestyle.  When the dangerous side to their business comes knocking on his door, he realizes his precious Doll isn’t safe.  The Hellions code may be that women and children are off limits in any altercation or dispute, but that doesn’t mean their enemies follow that same moral compass.

His only child, now in danger from the association to him and his club, Roundman makes a decision.  He sends her away with a charter club member that he trusts, in hopes that the trouble won’t follow.

One ride across the country.  One simple ride.  Talon “Tripp” Crews has been ordered to take Doll on one ride away and to keep her safe.  She’s off limits.  His head knows this, but his body can’t deny the attraction.  She’s feisty, fierce, and fearless.

Constantly in close confines together, can they deny the chemistry?  Will they give into the desire?  Can one ride turn lust into love?

This is the first book that I have read by Chelsea Cameron and it definitely will not be my last.  I have not read very many MC (Motorcycle Club) books.  Although I am fairly familiar with the lifestyle.  I loved how this story unfolded.

Delilah “Doll” Reklinger, aka “Princess”, is the daughter of “Roundman”, President of the Hellion’s MC for the past thirty-two years. Doll runs the office at the storage units that the club owns.  She spends her days renting out units, processing bills, running auctions and so on.  After high school, she spent four years away at college. Finally having a break from the MC.  But they were never very far, always keeping an eye on her.  She always knew she would return to the compound and live once she finished school.  When the annual bbq, that her father throws each year rolls around, Doll just expects the regular, crazy antics of all the other MC clubs that come.  When her dad introduces her to “Tripp” Crews.  All six foot two inches of bad ass biker has her body singing.  But she is off limits.  From the first touch of her lips to his skin, Doll feels a connection to this gorgeous man.

Talon “Tripp” Ward Crews is the President of the Catawba Hellion’s chapter.  He answers to Doll’s dad and is in business with him.  The first few years of Tripp’s life were far from easy and he still harbors harsh feelings towards his mother for it.  He has thrown himself into his trucking business.  He not only runs the office but regularly makes the transports himself.  

When a transport deal takes a dark turn and puts Delilah and her best friend Sass’ life in danger. Her father puts Tripp and his VP, Rex in charge of keeping them safe.  When Doll learns that she is being sent away, until the threat can be dealt with, she is not to happy.  Especially when she learns that Tripp will be accompanying her along the way.  She does not know if she can hide the want that she has for this man.  What ensues is some crazy hot moments.  Tripp is all man.  And Doll sets a fire inside him.  He will stop at nothing to protect and keep her safe.  Knowing that they cannot be together once they return, they decide to work each other out of their systems.  

“I kiss her with everything I have in me. If I die right now, I die a happy mother fucker to have shared my last kiss with this woman.”

“You’re everything, Doll. You’re the good in me. When the days get long, you’ll be what pulls me through. I’m gonna let you go, but I’m always gonna carry you with me.”

 Will they be able to find a way to be together?  Will the threat on Doll’s life be dealt with?  Can Tripp put his past behind him and forgive his mom?  Pick up this awesome book and find out.  A fairly quick read, that is well written.  The characters are fairly easy to relate too.  It is filled with some suspense and plenty of sexy smoldering scenes.  I felt that last 10% of the book felt a little rushed.  But overall a great read.
