Jill's Review of Dirty Ride by Chantal Fernando ~ RELEASE DAY BLITZ ~


(Wind Dragons MC, #3.5)
by Chantal Fernando

From USA TODAY bestselling author Chantal Fernando comes a brand new Wind Dragons Motorcycle Club e-novella, full of sexy bad-boy bikers, strong heroines, and steamy romance!

Even by Wind Dragon Motorcycle Club standards, Irish was always a bit of a dark horse. Not one to confide his secrets, such as where he got that mysterious scar across his neck, he’s quick with his fists and even quicker to jump to the defense of his MC. But is he nimble enough to handle the woman he never saw coming? Or will she leave him with a matching scar across his heart?

Featuring scorching hot chemistry and plenty of sass, Dirty Ride is sure to rev your engine and get you immediately hooked!

3.5 stars for this short novella about Ardan more widely known as Irish from the Wind Dragons MC and the fiery redhead that captures his heart - Valentina. You do NOT need to have read the previous books in the series to read this one with a worry of missing anything.

Tina moved across the country to get away from a controlling, manipulative and at times even abusive ex-boyfriend and finds herself at Knox's Tavern one night for a drink. While trying to mind her business a man with a beautiful accent can't seem to take the hint regardless of how rude she is, he keeps on talking. Finally Tina has enough and turns toward the persistent stranger to give him a piece of her mind but when she does the man in front of her is so NOT what she expected. This man is as beautiful as his accent but he is wearing a leather vest with multiple patches proclaiming him to part of a motorcycle gang which is something she is not looking to get mixed up with at all. Tina makes excuses to head out and figures she won't ever see this handsome man again but boy was she ever wrong about that one...

Irish is one of the most loyal and reliable brothers in the WDMC and while his brothers will always be important he has met someone that is just as important if not more. Valentina understands that he has work to do for the club and at times he can't talk about it but never once does she get angry with him or question him because of it. So now that trouble has followed her into town he will protect her at all costs int he only way he knows how...

While I liked this story as a part of the WDMC it felt very rushed to me. There were time jumps where we could have got to know these two better as a couple before a declaration of love was given. We did get a quick peek at the other couples in the MC which was nice to see too but I for one am ready for Rake's story to commence :)


(Wind Dragons MC Series, #1)
Re-Released: April 21, 2015

When Faye discovers her boyfriend in bed with another woman, she does something incredibly stupid: she sleeps with his brother, Dexter Black. He’s the boy next door who grew up to be one sexy biker dude, pure alpha male to the core. A tattooed muscle-bound fantasy in the flesh, Dex is now vice president of the notorious Wind Dragons MC. And now Faye’s really screwed. . . . She’s a law student with a future. He’s a criminal with a past. She’s a good girl from a strict family. He’s a bad boy who breaks all the rules. But once Faye straddles the back of Dex’s bike—and experiences the thrill of the open road, the rush of pure adrenaline, and the roar of unbridled lust—there’s no turning back. This good girl and her hot-blooded biker are in for the ride of their lives. . .

(Wind Dragons MC Series, #2)
Release Date: June 16, 2015

Anna is a beautiful Ph.D. student whose older brother is a notorious badass in the Wind Dragons MC. Of course she loves Rake, who’s looked out for her since their troubled childhood. But he’s still protecting her—to the extreme. She can’t make a move without a Wind Dragons motorcycle escort. Potential boyfriends flee, for fear of her ass-kicking sibling. And Rake’s made it clear that his biker brothers are trouble of the worst kind, and strictly off-limits. But one of these tattooed bad boys has already pierced her heart: Arrow, the bearded, darkly brooding rider with the body of a Greek God and eyes that betray a wounded soul. He’s sent to whisk her off campus on his thundering steel stallion. And when Anna wraps her arms around his rock-hard torso, it’s too late for caution: she’ll ride as far as the road takes them—unless Rake stops Arrow in his flight. . . .

*Note: this can be read as a stand alone

Sweet, shy, and studious, Lana was the perfect student in high school—and the perfect target for a horny jock. After being seduced and humiliated, she swears she’ll never trust a man again. But when a friend draws her into the circle of the Wind Dragons MC, Lana’s steel-walled defenses are put to the test. The bikers are so sexy, so masculine and assured, they’re hard to resist—especially the gorgeous one called Tracker…
From the moment he meets Lana, Tracker feels the chemistry between them—and it’s highly explosive. A part of him wants to protect this angel on earth from the hell-on-wheels bikers’ world. But another part of him wants to take her in his arms, put her on his bike, and ride off into the sunset together. Lana wants the same thing—even though she knows it will set off a firestorm of trouble. She also knows that when a woman want something, she has to fight for it. And Tracker is definitely worth fighting for…
