Kristen Ashley has done it again..... she has delivered yet another all-consuming and utterly compelling MC story with loveable characters and a beautiful romance which was a joy to listen to as it slowly, and skilfully, unfolded. Carissa and Carson (later known as Joker) should have got together when they were in High School but misunderstandings and fate decided that the time wasn't right for them and instead their lives took very different courses. But a chance encounter years later between a stranded desperate divorced Mom and a leather clad Biker gave two destined hearts another opportunity to find each other again.
The young emotionally and physically abused Carson has turned into a handsome but closed-off Alpha Biker whose MC name is now Joker and, although he tries really hard to fight letting the beautiful Carissa into his now shady life, the feisty Carissa wasn't going to let this hard headed man get away again. She has been through tough times too with a cheating ex who has been screwing with her emotionally and financially but, although she was poor and without friends, she had a 9 month old adorable little boy, who was the centre of her life - even if she had to share custody with her ex.... an ex that was about to continue to try to screw with her life.
I haven't yet met a K.A. Hero that I haven't loved and Joker was a very swoon worthy addition as he gently guided and helped Carissa get back on her feet and fight for what she, and her son, deserved. All whilst emotionally supporting her, giving in to their undeniable explosive sexual chemistry and reconnecting with the girl he had loved and sadly left behind. Which turned out to be a heart-felt beautiful love story with plenty of passionate sex scenes between two lovers who understood where each other was coming from, had each other's backs and shared the same hopes and dreams for their futures. Laced in with the romance there's humor, drama and a close Biker family willing to do whatever's called for for one of their own.
Dual POV's, a good narrator, typical short 'biker talk', some good secondary plots of a gruesome murder, a rival MC Club , some well deserved revenge on an abusive Father and some characters whose lives crossed paths with the young Carson's in a positive way and, when his emotional barriers fell, he wanted to seek them out once again.
Worth a credit? It's a K.A. book so, IMO, they always always are worth the credit.... it was everything I was expecting and more than I'd ever hoped for..... she's an Author who never ever disappoints me and that's why I eagerly wait for her next release.

OMG! I wish I could think up these compelling love stories that Kristen Ashley creates!--Mainly, because they touch on every heart string and more! Carson "Joker" and Carissa's story was thoroughly enjoyable! You feel for both characters as they endure some really awful stages in their lives, but when they find each other…OMG…they fit together and are thankful, grateful and explosively linked in this romance that was sexy and comforting. I listened to this book on vacation and it was the perfect listen. Kate Russel was superb as she delivered in her narration about this MC Chaos romance. For me, this book was perfect! I also loved sweet Travis….what an added joy to this story. Through this story, you will feel anger for the wrong done to both Carson and Carissa in their lives and the loss they experience, but their love for one another was like a soothing salve. But, rest assured all of the bad people get their due, and for those in the Chaos MC, well life just continues to build and get better all they way around for Joker, Carissa and the rest of the gang. I just couldn't get enough and already listened to it twice! Great listen!

I downloaded walk through fire and absolutely loved it so knew I had to read more of Kristen Ashley's stuff (well listen to Kate Russell's fantastic audio read). I was not disappointed with Ride Steady, I've not been able to stop listening. I love everything about this book - the characters are deep and likeable, story line is easygoing yet keeps you on the edge of needing to know more. Off to go buy another book from the series now!
Yet again I can't fault this audio book I have loved it and been hooked from the beginning I highly recommend you give these book a listen to
i just love this story i have already read it by book but its an extra bonnus to hear it on audio. kate Russell is an excellent narrative and i enjoy listening to her books she is reading of Kristen Ashleys. Definately worth 5 stars
