I am a great fan of Kristen Ashley novels. I loved this book. I agree the initial chapters were more of sex but I can understand the need felt justified. As usual I really love how she brings people together and giving importance to relationship and family either through blood or bond. Her girls always with sass as well with the strong will to win in life. I loved it

This has a crappy ending. It was turning out to be such a good classic KA - awesome couple, their struggle getting together, drama near the end - but it just fizzed out. So frustrating these KA works of late. The quality just isn't there lately. Please bring back the KA we know and love. She's still an automatic buy for me!

I’m a little disappointed. The book was okay. I recently reread Rough Ride and I hate that I still don’t know how a cliff hanger turned out. I do not like cliff hangers.
Of course I’ll still preorder and I can’t wait to read Free but I’m left wishing there was more to this book.

So many emotions in this, another great book by KA. I laughed, cried and got goose bumps. The amount of loyalty shown amongst the brothers and Hound, Dutch, and Jagger shows so much of what the brotherhood and family is about.

Enjoyable

Kristen Ashley is a must buy, must read author. Her "Chaos" series is incredibly realistic and filled with wisdom and hope.

This stand-alone is easy to follow and difficult to put down. The violence is not gratuitous. Unfortunately Hound does put his hands on Keely. Violence against women is not the norm for a Kristen Ashley story. No editing errors or drag-you-down drama.

The storyline revolves around Keeley and Hound's love for each other. They have multiple hurdles in their way, some of their own making.

Believable characters with distinct personalities. Thought-provoking, memorable and occasionally snarky dialogue.

This story does not explain what happened to "Snapper" from the Rough Ride novella, the previous "Chaos" book.

I will re-read this story as I do most of her works. I always look forward, pre-order when possible, new works by this author.

I really enjoyed the book. Kristen Ashley is one of my favorite author. The way she writes actually gets me to cry it’s insane cause no other book in awhile has done that.
I would say that I didn’t really like that Hound put his hands on Keely.

Kristen Ashley brought us more of the Chaos crew and brings out a story of love through years safeguarding friendships, brotherhood and family created through these unbreakable bonds of trust and love....

Loved everything about this book. Reminded me that everyone has their own version of romance. Hound and Keely are perfect together. Love the brotherhood and the sisters. It's never too late to find your happy.

At the end of the book, I was completely happy with Wild Like the Wind. I'd had all the Chaos I wanted and then some. Questions that had been lingering for awhile had been answered and I was more than ready to read Free, the final book in the series due out early next year. If I'd based my star rating on how I felt at the moment, WLtW would have gotten a 5 star rating from me. That said, if I'd given the rating at about 30% in, it would've been a hard 1.5/2 star rating.

I almost quit this book, or at the very least, spent a lot of time skipping entire chapters. It's not my place to question the author, especially when it's one that I trust like Kristen Ashley. But, truth, I don't know what she was thinking with the first part of this book. I consistently felt like I needed a shower, and not a cold one, from the amount and type of sex that played out until the 40% mark. I've talked with friends about this and my conclusion, the reason why I was so turned off by it, is because Hound and Keely as lovers were basically shoved down the readers' throats. There was no buildup to them as a couple. I really had no idea as to who either of these people were, except for the little we'd seen of them in previous books. Keely is described as a hardcore biker chick. The only thing I found that set her apart from all the other Chaos old ladies is her very vocal love of sex. I'm not sure what that says about these characters or biker chicks, but it took me a long time to not cringe when Keely was on page.

Up until that 40% mark, the story had been told from Hound's POV exclusively. I'll give an inch here and say that a lot of the crudeness is directly related to this. He's a guy, he's a biker, and his perception of things are going to be different than a woman's. This worked out okay for me because I knew that I needed to push through to get to the good stuff, but new readers to KA aren't going to hang on for the good stuff. Happily, Keely pretty much takes over and the book falls into the KA goodness that I long for. There's still not much to differentiate Keely from many other KA heroines, but Hound is definitely one of my favorite Chaos guys now and the two boys they raised together, Dutch and Jagger (Black's boys), more than make up for the first half of the book. KA sets these two up as the future of Chaos and I'm pretty much ready to leap frog over everyone else to get to their stories.

It takes awhile, but Chaos and all the other well-known KA characters finally show. It wouldn't be a Dream Man/Chaos book without Elvira and she had me laughing out loud with perhaps my most favorite scene EVER in a KA book. Boz had me choking up and I gave Rush a standing ovation. It's these things and more like it that keep me going back to KA, even when I'm a little disappointed.

Every story is gets even better in this series. Kristen Ashley is a master at what she does and she brought that to life with Hound and Keely’s story. Once I started reading, I couldn’t put it down.

I have thought for several of Ashley's last books that she is basically just "phoning it in" and selling books based on the myth of the great KA. It's the only thing that makes sense given the all the praise she gets. The woman cannot string a sentence together.I believe that she is trying to show a certain kind of dialect or speech pattern for her alpha characters however, the words are so disjointed I had to read several sentences more than a few times to grasp the meaning. Some of her sentences are a paragraph long. It's just all a little too hokey to me.Then the part where she had a fourteen year old boy describing how a girl he was feeling up was wet and warm down there....ich ich ich at that point I put the book down..

Let me first say that I respect Kristen Ashley’s talent as an author and have enjoyed many of her books. The Chaos series was not my favorite, but I did enjoy some of the stories. Overlooking some “Out of character” behavior of the heroines in the series was seemingly part of the imaginary world of Chaos and its Alpha males. This one....not so easy to overlook inconsistencies or improbable actions or dialogue based on the backstory of the main characters. The character of Hound simply annoyed me. Looking after his best friend’s wife and family as well as his elderly neighbor were the qualities that attempted to redeemed him as a hero IMO. The remainder of the book was spend being a major jerk, not a macho badass. Keely, really? Supposedly growing out of being a widow with two young sons to earning a Master’s to become an independent woman yet was satisfied with being with a guy who was flat out rude, crude and disrespectful to her on so many levels. Yeah, I know he was supposed to be a biker, however pushing Keely around in anger and the horrible, disrespectful words he said to her throughout were inexcusable and sent a message that being put down and disrespected was ok as long as he felt bad about it later but did it again later. Nope! Her being Apache was brought up several times but not explained in the context of the story beyond her looks and a bone choker. Native or not, no woman would put up with being loved one minute, stared down the next, ridiculed, and shoved around in anger when her “man” had a tantrum. Nope...not believable in the Me Too era. This one is a big miss for me,

I am flad she is back and hopefully she will keep giving us good. She lost me when she wrote a book about á male submissive and I've been rereading her books on and off. So seeing this book I was pleased and gave it a shot seeing if the old magic was back and it is almost. Next book will finish this series and I think we will be saying goodbye to Denver. Regardless this book was worth the read and I will finish this series.

This is going to be painful to give a three stars too. OUCH! I realy hyped myself up for this book even re-read the series to be ready and i guess from the other book she has writen this was just seemed WRITEN to me, like just to be writen. A lot A LOT of sex scenes GREAT sex scenes but a lot in the beginning for a long time then i kind of cant figure a biker to be the dominant but not dominant one. There also was a bad scene where he put his hands on her and in very bad anger. That put me off a bit and to be honest there was A LOT going on, repeats and really great writing just not my kind of story i like to read. I like her bad ass alpha hiker who is dominant but sexy and romantic with the female, idk. Wasnt feeling this book! Sorry Ashley otherwise i love the other books of Chaos.

Wild Like the Wind is the 6th book in the Chaos series by Kristen Ashley. I had so much fun delving back into the biker world that she created. This particular story revolves around Hound and Keely. 17 years ago Keely’s husband Black was murdered by someone who turned against Chaos. Fast forward to present day and Keely is raising her two boys alone, but she has the love and support of the club behind her. Hound especially has helped whenever it was needed. Especially when it comes to her two boys, Dutch and Jagger? Hound has been in love with Keely for a long time, but as much as it hurts him, he’s been just her friend while helping to support her and the kids. Going after another brothers woman, even if that brother is dead is a line you do not cross. Well until Keely shows up at his place and presents him with an offer even he cannot refuse.

I loved these two together. Their chemistry is undeniable. Hound is extremely loyal and willing to help however he can. Keely is headstrong and sassy. She’s never afraid to say what’s on her mind. The romance is scorching hot. And just be warned that there is a good amount of sex throughout the story, especially at the beginning. There is some drama of course, but it was not over the top. Things seem to be gearing up for bigger drama events to unfold...possibly in the next book? My only complaint would be that Keely and Hound waited so long to be together. I can understand why they would wait, however I felt that it didn’t have to be as long as it was.

With that said, I loved pretty much everything about this book. I didn’t realize how much I had missed this crazy biker world, until I started reading WLTW. It was a fun and steamy read. I’ve been a fan of Kristen Ashley’s ever since I read The Gamble in 2012. I love the way she writes and the characters are always lovable and easy to connect with and or root for. Wild Like the Wind falls into this category. The story had a nice pace and I enjoyed every moment I got to spend with Hound and Keely.

**Even though I received this book from the Author, the thoughts and opinions expressed are solely my own.**

As I’m writing this review, I’m trying to recall where this story lost my interest, and then I realized that this story never quite had it. I liked Hound, I liked how his character cared for Jean, and I mean that I liked it a lot. But Hound’s character stopped developing once Keely enters the picture and his apartment. There’s no development or growth of his character because pages of sex scenes have replaced the much needed dialogue. The story begins with Keely’s hatred and resentment for Chaos and Hound; it endures for nearly 2 decades, then one night out of the blue it disappears. No discussion between the two on what occurred to change Keely’s position, only that these two began communicating in a style that made high school sweethearts appear sophisticated. Hound stops being this alpha male biker, and becomes a teenage girl inside a biker’s body. Honest to god, when he gave Keely the nickname Keekee, I visualized his manhood being sucked up inside him and when it pops out, part of it has become a vagina. The emasculation of Hound is painful to read because I had high hopes of him being different, and in the beginning Hound’s character appears to be darker and deeper. Sadly Keely’s entrance into his apartment sullies Hound’s alpha male reputation quicker than getting knocked up behind the middle school playground. I only made it to 40% before calling No Mas because I couldn’t endure these two unconnected characters involved in another sex scene where everything but the lampshade was licked, stroked, spanked, probed, eaten, and sucked dry.

This is like 70% sex and 30% story. Now I’ve read a grundle (*cough* more than 40 *cough*) of KA books and so I know a few things going into them.

1 -- There will be sex. It will be steamy and usually there is at least one scene in a shower. Seriously how does no one end up with a concussion going to town in the shower
2 -- There will be a verbal smackdown with family or friends who are being jerks and deserve the smackdown. Usually my favorite moment in the book
3 -- The guy will make a colossal mistake and totally screw things up for a little while. ALWAYS
4 -- Sometimes the language will seem strange and totally be stunted. that is what happens sometimes when alpha males talk. KA is like the only author I never seem to mind this with.
5 -- There will be that aw-shucks moment that I might want to tear up a little/a lot at.

But my emotional connection to the characters didn’t run as deep in this one since I honestly just got tired of them having sex. At one point during this book I texted book BFF and fellow KA addict to say that either I’m remembering all the prior KA books I’ve read wrong or there is a ton of sex in this one.

Okay so the story is Keely lost her husband 18 years ago and since then all the Chaos brothers have chipped in to take care of her over the years. But Hound was there the most and that was because he loved her even when she belonged to another man. He has been there to help with her boys and anything else she might possibly need but still keeping his distance since she was once his brother’s wife and you just don’t go there.

Keely has decided that she is done mourning the man she loved with everything she was and it is time to start living again. Hound is the man she has decided to do that with even if she has to convince him that she is moving on and he is doing that with her.

It is a cute story and I love these, I’ve loved you for so long and now let’s make a go of it stories. But their hook up starts really early and after every cute thing they have sex, after every argument they have sex, after breakfast they have sex. Do you see where I’m going with this. I mean I honestly got tired of how much they were having sex <this is kinda a first for me so it feels weird to say>.

It took forever to get to the meat of the story and there was only a little bit of movement on the Chaos overall arc front with the problems with a rival that wants to take chaos down. There is a really cool twist/turn but it came incredibly late to the story.

I was a little afraid in this that Boz was going to be the next story. I really have hated how he treated his ex Bev and so the last thing I really wanted was for them to have another go since he cheated on her and I’m never okay with that. But I loved where KA took that part of the story and I have no worries now that Bev is going to be happy in the future too.

Overall this is fluff wrapped in a lot of sex. I’m not saying that is a bad thing. I sometimes don’t mind if it is 90% sex and 10% story if that is what I’m looking for. I just expected a little more substance to storyline.

My love for this bunch of people started with Motorcycle Man, the last of Kristen Ashley's Dream Man. I fell in love with every single one of these unconventional heroes so it comes as no surprise that Hound is the newest addition to my favorite book-boyfriends (although he probably wouldn't like this title at all).

If you have followed this series you know that Keely Black is the widow of one of the Chaos members. Eighteen years ago the betrayal of their old president took him away from her and her sons. You also know that Hound has been carrying a torch for Keely. I have always been wondering why nothing ever came of it. Finally we get all the answers.

Hound's love for Keely, her sons and his brothers knows no bounds. He is an all around good man, loyal, level-headed - mostly, and - be still my heart - he cooks and cleans and takes the trash out! What made me fall in love with him though was something nobody, not even his brothers knew about him. While he is the badass biker at the Compound, he takes care of his elderly neighbor in bis apartment building. The devotion and love he had for Jean was so incredibly touching and sweet that I was blinking tears away. They had such a beautiful relationship and the way he cared for his Jean-Bug, always with a mind to her dignity, it was simply moving. Hound is the born nurturer, he always took care of what he considered his and that included Keely and her sons. It cut deep that she seemingly didn't return his feelings.

Keely is the Old Lady out of the book, but she wasn't one for long and has never been able to move on from her old man's vicious murder. So when she turns up at his door one day, Hound watches her not with a small amount of surprise undress in his apartment.

Since the first 45% are written in Hound's POV we don't know what kind of play Keely is making. It becomes clear when the POV switches to her so hang in there!

Keely is a strong woman, and it's never more clear when Hound delivers a major fuck-up. Her backbone is made of steel and I was so glad she didn't give in but made him fight for her. She was magnificent in her anger. I had to dig deep to forgive Hound but then I thought about his love for his neighbor so I moved on.

Heads up, the first 35% contain a lot of sex. While I thought it was a little bit too much it helped to get a feel for the kind of relationship Keely and Hound had. I could definitely have done with a little less bed action and more story. With all that being said though, KA delivers one of her dirtiest heroes with Hound so far. Jesus, they were hot and went at each other like bunnies.

We get an update on where Chaos is headed and how things are going now that their enemy has disappeared. After the cliffy in the epilogue of Rough Ride I was expecting much more action but I think Ms Ashley saves the biggest climax (no pun intended) for Rush's book (who I absolutely adored in Wild Like the Wind - his part towards the end is one of my favorite things in this book).

While this installment doesn't have as much action and heartbreak as the former ones, which is surprising because I expected much more with Keely and Hound's background story, it is a fabulous, intense and beautiful addition to the Chaos series. I loved Keely and Hound's connection, her sons and I was happy to see lot of the brothers again, especially Tack, Hop and High (who was in the doghouse for a short period of time).

This installment was everything I hoped for. We get a lot of answers about how Black and Chaos was betrayed and we are left with a little cliffy that makes me salivate for the next one. Now the wait for Rush's book starts and I'm afraid it'll get messy and the relatively peaceful times at Chaos will be over soon. I can't wait to get my hands on it

There is a reason Kristen Ashley is one of my favorite authors. Her words have a way to get under my skin. They are clear and get to the bottom of things without exaggerated flourish. But mostly they are beautiful because they are simple truths.

So...I had issues with the first 20-ish% of the book. It was basically a series of crude, tacky hookups that had me feeling sympathy for Hound and his messed up situation. Then things flip. And we get into Keeley’s head space. And darned if I didn’t feel myself growing to like her witchy self.

I’m also quite positive that was the whole stinking point to the first portion of the book.

By 40-ish% I was in tears and beyond angry at Hound. By 50%...I was hooked...and glad I pushed myself to finish this book. The relationship struggles, brotherhood issues, Benito still causing problems for Chaos, and the plot whammy I wasn’t expecting, but it explains so much!

I wasn’t a big fan of Keeley or Hound and this was simply based on the glimpses I had of them in previous books. However, I went into their story, giving the benefit of doubt because 1) I didn’t know Keeley’s side of events, 2) I didn’t know Hound’s true personality, 3) I can’t count the number of times a KA guy has surprised me with their behavior once they fall in love.

This wasn’t an easy read. There was a ying-yang of feels. There were parts that caused my eyebrows to shoot up as I’m muttering what on earth..., there were moments my heart was breaking, and there were moments I was cheering while simultaneously hoping Keeley and Hound caught a freaking break. What finally brought me on board was that one moment, where the heart and mind click and Keeley and Hound acknowledged what that meant for them.

Let me start by saying that I love KA. I have read everyone of her books. Every single one. I will continue to do so. I should also give more reviews because I dont want to be the bad review girl. My life is/was similar to Chaos and the Rock Chicks- always about Harleys, friends, family, partying, kids, etc. I get her language, her stories, her feelings about family whether blood or by bond. I think in her way she is trying to wrap up the series and used Keeley and Hound as the heart of the club and to tie up things. I just believe that with all good thinks too much is too much. In my opinion in all of her series (and really in all series) all things must come to an end and the story-line goes cold and it becomes hard to stay fresh. I think that of the Rock Chicks, the Mountain men series, the other world series and now Chaos. I also think that of Game of Thrones, Mad Men and other tv shows. She is a fabulous writer and definitely one of my favorites but the story just didn't pull at my heart strings like others have. I also like other reviewers think the sex scenes were too many and too much. I also wasn't a fan of the honey series nor the one where Deacon and his girl did all of the ass play. I guess in some ways despite my lifestyle I'm a little old fashioned and prefer the sex to be more romantic and not so raunchy even though I understand alot of people are into that. So Im ready for a new series. Sorry for the three stars Ms. KA but I still love you and will continue to be a big fan. BTW- it might not show as a veried purchase as I bought the audible version.

I do not know what I will do with life when this series ends. I don't even want to think about it.
I'm so in love with this series, I was so pumped when I found out that this one was for Hound and Keely. Hound because he seemed so psycho and I like the idea of such a dangerous, loyal man getting the love he deserves and someone to show that sweet side to. And he did not disappoint.

Keely, we knew from previous books that she'd lost the love of her life, Black, when the club hit trouble and he paid the ultimate price. For seventeen years she mourned the death of him, raising their two sons, Dutch and Jagger, and knowing that in her heart of hearts that he was her life. It broke my heart....

What else broke my heart, was that for longer than those seventeen years, she'd been the love of Hounds life, but he never went there out of loyalty to his brother. But could you imagine? He loved her the only way he could, which was being there for her to help her with anything she needed a man for; including raising her sons. He stayed apart of their life and you know it had to kill... of course it would. He did it without complaint though... I fell in love with Hound because of that.

Hound had the biggest heart, he was the most loyal brother and he proved himself to be even better when he took on looking after his neighbor; a little old jewish lady named Jean. I fell in love with Hound again because of all he was to Jean. I honestly didn't think anyone could top Joker or Shy for me... but if he didn't top them, he's right up there with them. My goodness, y'all... you can't not love him.

Now, for almost the entirety of the book, the club is not in the know about them being a couple. They both tried to go for a friends with benny's situation, but with the feelings that both of them had for one another, it was no use... There was no denying it, though they did have a little bit to work through. I wanted to punch Hound at least once, when his mouth and his hands got away from him... but, he more than redeemed himself, even if I thought Keely let him off the hook way too easy....
I'm glad they didnt' hide it from Dutch and Jagger though, not when it counted, I loved the family they were together. I hope we get to see those two settle down, if not get a little novella or something about the both of them. I need that!

I was not impressed with Arlo, I did not feel that he was justified and I hated that he didn't get his karmic kickback that he deserved. I loved the girl posse came to the rescue and I'll forever love Elvira and the way she handles her business. I love that Carissa and Joker are expecting, and I love how each other guys stood up for Hound when the truth came out.
I know guys, especially biker guys do not talk about beautiful love like they do in this series... but I love that they do in this series LOL

Overall, it was just another fantastic addition to the most amazing series. I'll be sad to see it end, but I can't wait to see what's in store for Rush, and I'm hoping they'll finally get even with those who have been warring against the club for so long. I cannot wait!

Also.... with all the babies that are being had... I really hope Joke and Carrissa have a girl, because there was no hotter dad than Kane Tack "Allen" with Tabby.... those guys need a baby girl to be wrapped around her little finger. I'm hoping for it!

5 stars from me!

Have you ever loved the tone of a story so much that before you're even halfway through, you already want to go back to the beginning and start again?? I felt that way repeatedly throughout Wild Like the Wind. Every bit of this story had me giddy with inexplicable emotion, elated over the promise of what was to come, overwhelmed with unease over how complicated this story was shaping up to be. But more, I was completely intoxicated by the rush of being back in the world of Chaos. Of all the Kristen Ashley novels in her library, there are none that I love and reread more than the Chaos series. So being back in the world of these fiercely loyal bikers who love hard and fight hard to protect their own while living wild and free was like a shot of adrenaline straight to my heart. I'm addicted to this series and I'm a reader who revisits it regularly, so I'm thrilled to share that Hound and Keely's story is one I'll be rereading again and again.

There is so much beauty in this story I don't even know where to begin. Hound came out of nowhere and shattered my heart, quickly becoming one of my all time favorite KA heroes. Even now, my heart both cracks and soars when I think back on everything he is on these pages. Keely and Hound's romance is breathtaking and gut wrenching and deliciously sexy, it's everything I didn't even know to hope for when I began reading. But I have to say, the dynamic between Hound and Jean will stand out as one of the most unforgettable, inspiring relationships between two characters I've ever read in a Kristen Ashley novel. The friendships and loyalties between KA's characters are truly the backbone of every single one of her books. It's never just about the romance in her stories, it's about the inextricable ties that link every single personality together in her vast ensemble of characters. And the connection Hound shares with Jean, the unconditional love and the most selfless form of friendship was so incredibly moving to witness. They say one's character is defined by who they are when no one else is watching, and Hound's truth and his heart and the absolute beauty of his character is never more evident than when he's with Jean. If you don't fall hard and fast for this blue-eyed biker, something is seriously wacked in your soul.

Wild Like the Wind is an all consuming romance about second chances, about grabbing life by the balls, about finding your way back after grief, but it's all swathed in a deliciously forbidden biker romance, and if there's anything more delicious in the world than the idea of a forbidden MC romance courtesy of Kristen Ashley, I'd like to be formally introduced immediately. The forbidden nature of what's growing between Hound and Keely is something the Chaos MC has strict rules against. But more, Keely and Hound's own turmoil over moving on together with the shadow of the past hanging over them is just as emotionally taxing as keeping it a secret from the club. This story is raw and intense and complicated and it all makes for such an emotionally tumultuous reading experience. There's something palpable about the way KA characters love each other and take each other's backs and because of that, the notion that Hound and Keely getting together might bring the wrath of the club upon them is a legitimate fear that you both want to see tested in the name of love and avoided for the sake of brotherhood.

I absolutely ADORED this story from beginning to end. The history of the club, all we know about Chaos' darkest days, comes full circle in this book, bridging the past with the present, laying the framework for future drama and more inevitable romance. It's both addictive and awe inspiring what Kristen Ashley continues to do with each Chaos installment, masterfully weaving together decades of longing, loss, brotherhood and rivalry to create new standalone romances that are both refreshingly thrilling and comfortably familiar. As each Chaos brother finds his way to happy, more drama and uncertainty is unleashed on the club ensuring the reader is instantly ravenous for more. That's where I'm now left... with an epic book hangover, completely bereft that Wild Like the Wind is over, my heart overflowing with joy and peace over Keely and Hound's UNFORGETTABLE romance, but bursting with both dread and anticipation for what's sure to come in the wake of these events.

4 1/2 Fantastic Stars!!

“He was a badass biker who lived life wild, took it by the throat, and shoved aside anything he didn’t want in it.”

YES!!!! HOUND!!! ‘Wild Like the Wind’ is a gritty and VERY sexy trip back to the world of Chaos. Loved it!!!

The Chaos books do something for me and I can’t quite put my finger on it. The men and women of Chaos have all suffered, lived full lives and love with all their hearts. There are no false moments or easy paths here. In fact, Kelly and Hound take YEARS to get together and even when they do, they must pay dearly.

“It was great, babe. Fantastic...spectacular. But it’s a one-time thing. I’ll bring you your checks. You got me. You’ll never lose me. Your boys are so deep in my heart I’d take a bullet for them. But this, what we did, is done. You with me?”

Keely lost her husband years before and the Club has always taken care of her. But there is one cardinal rule of the brotherhood: never, ever be with another brother’s wife. Hound is a loyal member and he absolutely will not go against his brothers. This tension makes for lots of heartbreak and emotion and forms the backbone of this book.

“F--- me, that was a huge f---up,” he muttered into his palms. This was true. It was also the best four hours of his life. Bar none.

Nothing happens quickly in the world of Kristen Ashley which is one of the reasons why I love her writing so much. Each page, each chapter of her books is meant to be savored and enjoyed. And ‘Wild Like the Wind’ is a a satisfying, rich and very sexy story that encompasses tons of emotion and has tons of action.

This book is filled with some surprises which even for a seasoned Kristen Ashley reader will be totally enjoyable. All of the characters that I love from Chaos are here plus some new ones. And I loved the way Keely’s sons are also made a central part of the story. Hound’s relationship with them is just beautiful. I am not sure there is a more loyal or loving man than Hound. Does he screw up? Yes. But I cried when reading his scenes with Keely, Jean, Keely’s boys and even the Chaos brothers.

I did think the Valenzuela storyline could be wrapped up a little more quickly but that is just my opinion. This story captured my heart. Hound so deserved to be happy. And of course in true Kristen Ashley style, these characters are not 20-somethings. They are adults who have lived life, suffered, and loved hard.

The scenes between Keely and Hound literally burn up the page and the brutal world of MC life is not glossed over here. Chaos remains one of my favorite series and I LOVED this story. Don’t miss it!!

“We’re gonna ride wild and burn bright, baby. We’re gonna tear this life up.”

I'm a huge Kristen Ashley fan, and her Chaos series is probably my favorite of all her series. Walk Through Fire is one of my most favorite books (and one of my most re-read books) ever, so I was desperate for this story. It didn't disappoint one bit. It was beautiful, gave me all the feels, and made my heart burst with happiness. I loved it so much!

Hound and Keely Black. The forbidden couple of Chaos. Keely Black was Black's old lady, and even though Black has been gone for almost two decades, she's forbidden to move on with a brother of Chaos. That doesn't change the fact that Hound has been in love with Keely for the entirety of that time and has been there for her and been a father figure for her boys. But nothing could ever come of it. They both know that. 

Keely has spent the last 17 years of her life a widow. She's finally ready to move on. She doesn't want to waste any more time being alone. And there is only one man she wants to move forward with. 

I loved Keely and Hound so so much! They were both amazing characters. Hound was the absolute best. The relationship he had with Keely's boys made my heart so happy. They never really got to know their father, but Hound made sure they always had a Dad in him. Even when he thought there was zero hope of he and Keely being together he was always there for those boys. Also, his relationship with his neighbor *sobs* I could not love him more. He was a fantastic guy and he quickly yet  unexpectedly has made his way to the top of my favorite KA heroes. I also loved Keely and her strength. Strong heroines are always my favorite. Even though their back and forth stressed me out at times, I loved the fight they both had in them.


Wild Like the Wind is a perfect addition to the Chaos series. I couldn't have loved it more. It was everything I wanted it to be. The next (and final) book in the series is one I've been looking forward to for YEARS and I can't wait! I don't want the Chaos series to end!!

In Wild Like the Wind we return to the wonderful world of the Chaos MC and embark on a wild ride with Hound and Keeley leading the way. Wild Like the Wind starts off hot and heavy and remains that way through to the last page. We discover more of the darkness that Chaos encountered to bring them to the light and the battle that they continue to wage to remain there. For me this story was one of the best of the Chaos series.

Hound is an enforcer and often handles “wet work” for the club, he is so tough yet we later find so selfless. Hound cares for an elderly neighbor Jean in such a selfless way I find it extremely moving and their relationship to be full of emotion and love. This tale is so hot, tender, moving, and just a complete package it brings forth all the feels for me touching and pulling at so many of my heartstrings. This love story is decades long in the making and built with much sacrifice, tragedy, and must withstand so much including a battle with the brothers so that they may bring their relationship out of the shadows.

There is so much, so very much to say about Wild Like the Wind, yet I would be cheating all of you from the wonderment of this great read if I were to say too much. I will say do not dwell on whether you should one click, just do it. Every word by Kristen Ashley is a gift and you are only depriving yourself should you hesitate. I strongly encourage you to read all of her works, they are just that good no GREAT!

If you have are not up to date with the Chaos series I would recommend you start as instructed with the suggested reading order found on Ms. Ashley’s author page.

I have always been a rabid Kristen Ashley fan and Chaos has always been my favorite series of hers. I have to say I was disappointed in this book. Kristen has always given us alpha hero’s and smart sassy heroines. The push and pull of the budding relationship and even the angst is always hypnotic to me. For the first half of this book that is missing. It seems to me she is trying so hard to put in OTT raunchy sex scenes that she is no longer giving us the delicious push and pull we expect from her. The characters are like paper dolls doing a porno. Yes the sex is hot but there is no connection emotionally. No spark!!
The second half was Chaos business and I loved that. I’m just sad that I wasn’t buzzed of this book like Tacks or Shys or Highs. I’m really hoping with Rush we get the passionate emotion in the characters back.

I devoured this book in two days. I was excited to read it, though the Chaos series is not my favorite, but I have seriously enjoyed each installment, including this one. I do agree with some negative reviews about KA being more drama and sex than action her older novels, and yes, this one is true to most of KA's newer books. My issue was the physical altercation between the couple and not for other people's reasons. I totally understand why he went overboard, didn't check it, as KA alpha men say. To find someone you love dead, feel the woman you love is using you for sex, just feeling a lot of anger like men often do. My issue is we totally should have seen more in Hound feeling wretched. Have him more traumatized by it. And I never connected to the reasons Hound kept Jean a secret. Though, I still loved the book, devoured it fast, and I was left wanting more! The writing is still excellent, but I do miss some of the older KA, Colorado Mountain series, Rock Chicks, Dream Man series, unfinished heroes, and the Burg. Chaos series has been great. Just not as fantastic for me as others.

Hound...what can I say about you? You quickly pushed Tack off his throne and nearly unseated Ty as my fave KA book boyfriend. Right now you both are sharing the throne. You proved that you were a game changer in this book! Your love for Jean, Keely, Dutch, and Jagger knew no bounds; add that to the love you already had for your Chaos brethern and you became the best part of them. It was not an easy road for anyone, but seeing what was entailed made the other side that much sweeter!

This book brings things almost full circle for Chaos. What began with Black's death affects Chaos all this time later! It is really hard to write this without giving away any spoilers! So many questions will be answered and Chaos will have a much clearer picture of their enemy.

As with all KA books, this book is steamy! So much steam that it might set your kindle smokin'! Beautifully written as all Kristen Ashley's books are and she puts you through all the feels as you watch as the story unfolds as if you are there!

I have read every Kristen Ashley book published, EVERY SINGLE ONE! That's like almost 60 books if my count is correct, so to say I'm a fan is a gross understatement. If I could live in any authors head, she would be the one. That being said, I cried more reading this book than any other book of hers before. Maybe it's because it's a story about a single mom of 2 grown kids trying to rediscover living and loving wild and free again (hello mirror). Maybe it's because her attention to the details of the raw emotion of life with these characters, their ups and downs, their highs and lows, their trapped and hopeless and their wild like the wind. Maybe it's because in this story we FINALLY get some answers in the Chaos saga drama. Maybe I'm just PMSing and emotional, LOL! Whatever it is, this book... this book gave me ALL THE FEELS. All of them. It's soared to top 5 KA books of all time for me, and I don't say that lightly because I FLOVE so many of her stories. You need to read it, trust me.

I own all KA books and I pre-order everything new she publishes. I’ve read Three Wishes 6x and still cry at 3 different spots in the book. She is at the top of my favorite author list.
That said, I think I am over this author. The last 3-4 books have blended together for me. The H talks the same in each book and could be interchangeable. Same with the h pretty much.
I would rather wait a year for a book that is real and thought out and has real characters than get a new book every 3 months that I don’t even want to finish. KA is no longer on my pre order list.

I couldn’t sleep last night so checked to see what new book was released in the wee hours of the morning... what a wonderful surprise to see that Kristen Ashley had delivered another addition to the incredible Chaos series, one of my favourite series of all time...and what an addition it was...

‘Wild Like the Wind’ was a remarkable story of second chances... hope... love and the bonds of brotherhood. My love for this series began with ‘Motorcycle Man’, each one of these unconventional heroes was so utterly original I adored their journeys, so unsurprisingly Hound’s story warmed my heart. Following the series, I knew that this would not be an easy going read with the heroine being Black's widow...but I also knew KA would weave her magic... and that she did!

Eighteen years ago Chaos war with a rival MC took Black away from Keely and her sons yet Hound has been carrying a torch for Keely all of that time... Hound's love for Keely, her sons and his brothers knows no boundaries, he is an all round good guy, loyal, level-headed.... It cut deep that Keely seemingly didn't return his feelings... until she finally opens up...

“Life’s a game, Hound. People don’t play it. We’re pawns. It plays us. And every day you don’t know how it’s gonna play you. You could wake up a winner, or you could wake up a loser. But when you’re wild like the wind like we are, you roll with it. Today, I woke up a loser. But I’m gonna end the night a winner.”

This book was everything I hoped for, it is a fabulous, intense and beautiful addition to the Chaos series. I loved Keely and Hound's connection, her sons and I was happy to see many of the brothers again, especially Tack, Hop and High. We get a lot of answers about how Black and Chaos were betrayed and we are left with a little cliffhanger that makes me eagerly anticipate the next one... thanks KA yet again for a joyously sleepless night!

Oh, Kristen! How I've missed the world of Chaos. I say this even though you gave us Rough Ride not long ago, but that was just a taste and I NEEDED more.

Hound was quite the surprise. I loved that he had such a soft spot! His love for his brothers, Jean Bug, Keely, and her boys was beautiful. The love that he had for Black, that he'd deny himself the family that he longed for, just to honor the memory of his brother was honorable and heartbreaking. I'm so glad that Keely and her boys shared the same love for Hound, and were right there to give Hound the love he deserved.

That bonus prologue to FREE? I'm HIGHLY anticipating Rush and Rebel! Bring on the Chaos!!

I loved Hound and Kelly’s story! Eighteen years of being in love with a brother’s widow; taking care of her and her boys. It’s a long wait. A wait with no hope. And Jean. ❤️❤️❤️

Hound just makes me melt. He’s good through and through. He loves deeply and quietly. He gives freely. He’s loyal to a fault. He sees and feels so much.

I’m glad he got something good, something great. This story was more than a biker story. More than a romance. It was more than the brotherhood of Chaos. It was about family. Keely, Dutch, Jagger...and Hound. It’s been that way but not in the best, honest, freeing way. But it is now.

Yeah. I loved it. ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

This book was another excellent installment of K.A. Chaos series! I started to read it and thought I'd read a few chapters and continue reading for the next couple of days! Instead it was so, so good I kept reading until I realized I was half way thru the book. Finished it the next day! So many feels and emotions. Hound is the perfect mate for Keely! Not to give away too much as a spoiler but "June-Bug" OMG she was a heart tug that makes you sad but happy that he had her for the amount of time he did! If you're on the fence wondering if you should get this book, don't be, you won't be disappointed if you purchase it!

Fantastic..This book shows what brotherhood is all about along with family. Keely lost Black but Hound was their to help her manage life good and bad. Hound and Keely have a relationship many could dream of.. The love and emotions are so real!! Excellent Read!

I really loved this book. The only part I could do without, and I could do without in a couple Chaos books, is the female invasion. In this book, it’s during Hound’s beatdown. It was such an emotional and moving scene and the women written in ruined the seriousness. Can. Not. Wait. For Rush’s story!!!

I've been looking forward to this book since it was announced that Hound was going to get a book. The rest of the book was fine but there was a scene where Hound got physically violent with Keely that was just not okay. The following pages which excused it away were also not okay. As a woman who has been in an abusive relationship, all of that made my skin crawl. I love Chaos but this is just unacceptable to me.

I thought I had finally found a KA book I wasn't going to like. Let me add ... I LOVE EVERYTHING THIS WOMAN WRITES!!! I struggled with the beginning few chapters. A lot of sex, not much else. But I now understand that it was building up the story. And what a story it was! Can't wait for Rush's book. But I'm really hoping to hear more from Dutch and Jagger. Keeley and Hound did an amazing job with those boys!

The first third of the book is basically just sex. Don't get me wrong, I like a good sex scene, but not 200 pages of non stop sex, it got ridiculous. Then after all the sex Hound put his hands on Keely in anger. I mean, he apologized, made excuses and promised never to do it again, so we're good right? No. The answer is No, we're never okay with that. I'm very disappointed KA wrote this guy, Hound is a POS.
