Fire Inside By Kristen Ashley

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 tastes. 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.
This is only the fifth Kristen Ashley book I have had the pleasure of reading so far and in all honesty I think this is one of my favourite books of all time.
Fire Inside tells the story of Lanie Heron, (whom we meet in Motorcycle Man and Own The Wind), and Hopper ‘Hop’ Kincaid.
Lanie is still reeling from her last relationship, which ended dangerously and almost took her life over eight years ago. One night however, as she walks into Chaos, she decides that it is time she moved on. Even if for one night, she thinks she is ready. So seeing as she has always has an intense attraction to Hop, she propositions him with the mindset that a gorgeous man like Hop Kincaid would be ‘down’ for one night only – ‘One night’ and nothing more. But as two broken hearted individuals, who are not looking for love or commitment get together, they soon realise one night may never be enough. This is despite the fact that Lanie refuses to acknowledge this.
Obstacles, issues of trust, and other factors remain as continuous threats to Lanie every time she lets her guard down. As Lanie continuously pushes Hop away, the two realise that maybe not everything is meant to be.
In true Kristen Ashley style, familiar nuances shine through with language, setting, and situations. The new Chaos series, much like the Dream Men series, offers the same witty banter, masculine biker-dominant men, and of course the drama that all KA readers love. There was not a lot of suspense in Fire Inside, therefore may appear a bit tame for readers familiar with KA’s books, but it still remains a captivating and fantastically written book. One that is a MUST READ!
