When trouble finds Rip yet again and a bar brawl starts, both he and Hayley are thrown to the curb.

Hayley knows this is her chance to find the excitement she so craves, but Rip doesn’t want to be some good girl’s bad-boy experience, so he turns down her advances, leaving her feeling rejected.

But life is never that simple for Rip, and he soon finds himself in her bed and wanting more. When his three biker friends show up, Hayley’s love of numbers turns into an erotic adventure none of them will ever forget.

But is there a chance for more than that between Hayley and Rip? Find out by taking a Hot Ride you’ll never forget.

Throwing caution to the wind has never been more erotic.
Hayley is as plain as they come.  The definition of normal. Until one night, when a dangerous but overwhelmingly hot biker truly makes her throw caution to the wind. Stepping out of her comfort zone shows Hayley the wild woman hiding inside.
Rip is a retired undercover cop turned bad ass biker. Sexy is an understatement, his presence is intimidating and commanding and the man could light you on fire with a look.  He also will put his own ass on the line to make sure a stranger is ok. One fine man.
With one read Opal Carew has me hooked. Holy crap this short read was flippin hot. Overwhelming attraction and intense chemistry! With a few pages Ms. Carew will get your blood pumping and have you wanting to hop on the back of Rip’s biker.  Alpha bikers who truly just want to ride with a good woman with them.

Audio Review: A Taste For A Mate by Carrie Ann Ryan

tasteA TASTE FOR A MATE

CARRIE ANN RYAN

REDWOOD PACK SERIES, BOOK 2

Audiobook
Published September 2014 (first published January 30th 2012)

Narrator: Gregory Salinas

 

Jasper Jamenson’s only responsibility to being the Beta of the Redwood Pack, second son of the Alpha, is to protect the Pack from themselves and the human world. After a century of selfless service, his brother’s new found mating forced him into taking a good look into his life. He isn’t sure he wants a mate, but fate may have other ideas.

Willow Delton is a skinny, bakery owner – the type most woman love to hate. Being without family, she finds herself alone to the Greek god with green eyes who saunters into her bakery every morning. Her desire to follow him, to be with him, overrides every rational sense she possessed.

Jasper and Willow are drawn together, despite every nuisance that works against them. But evil beyond even Jasper’s supernatural compensation will make war against him, by going after the only thing in his eternal life he desires – Willow. Is Willow’s heart enough to overcome Jasper’s soul to save her life? A fight he cannot win, but to save her life – he must.

Diving deeper into the Redwood Pack!

 

Jasper, Beta of the Redwood Pack, is everything I love in a wolf. Strong, dominant, protective and fierce. His life changed the day he walked into a bakery and smelled that cinnamony sent. Just when he and his wolf have their mate, hell breaks in on Jaspers life.  

 

Willow is a survivor. Orphaned, she has only had herself to rely on. She made a goal and built her dream. Willow is strong, a bit timid but feisty when needed and courageous. For a woman whose life literally got a slapped into a living urban legend I would say she is doing pretty damn good.

 

Carrie Ann Ryan takes it up a notch with A Taste For A Mate, book two of the Redwood Pack Series.  Willow and Jasper will tug at your heart as they steam up the pages trying to find how their pieces fit together. Emotional and naughty. Ms. Ryan really opens up the world of the Redwoods. Getting deep inside the pack, learning the ways of her wolves. Personalities emerge from the background, setting the stage not only for this story but the entire series.  

Gregory Sanlinas voice is the piece that completes the puzzle bringing the Redwood Pack alive in the readers mind.
